I have been the lucky recipient of several vintage film cameras in my life (my favourites are my mother's Ricoh KR-5 Super and my grandmother's Olympus OM-1). Although I did have my own film camera as a girl, my love for more elaborate vintage cameras has grown. I have been shooting strictly in manual mode [...]

Earth, Wind and Fire

When I’m not accessorizing my secondhand outfits with vintage jewelry, I accessorize with local or sustainable jewelry instead. Luckily, Alauna Whelan creates both local & sustainable jewelry options and they are beyond beautiful. She gifted me with this stunning necklace and I haven’t taken it off since. Alauna finds her inspiration in nature and has [...]

These medications usually mask or numb the problem, without actually helping to treat it. They also come with an incredibly long list of side effects. I am aware of [...]

Sharing Memories

Sharing Memories

One of my favourite things to do is to chat with my grandparents over the phone. They often wish they could see what I am talking about, as my grandparents do not have cell phones and live far away. This makes sharing pictures with them a little more difficult than we are used to. Therefore, [...]
