Experimenting with film

I finally got around to developing these pictures that I took last summer! Talk about loafting...

I've been trying to get the knack of taking pictures with film… I just really like the imperfect quality it gives off. Last summer I was given a vintage Minolta SLR camera which I'm still getting used to. I don't have much experience shooting with film but I'm going to try my hardest to get better at it this summer. Also, some of these pictures have been taken on disposable cameras as well as the SLR. 

Anyways, here's my attempt at film. 

Thanks for reading!

Green drank recipe !!

So these past couple weeks I  finally gotten a new juicer (since we burnt through the last and have been extensively trying to stick to a healthy regime. Home made juices always taste so fresh and it's like your body says thank you every time. To be honest, I have been feeling a lot better and alert, less sloth like  in the mornings  and can genuinely feel a good start to my day! 

This particular reciple is for detoxing, but I wouldn't mind drinking it any time, it has a kind of tangy yet subtly sweet can hardly taste the vegetable taste thanks to the ginger & lemon.

Here's what I used:

Celery- 4 stalks, leaves removed
Apple - 2
Lemon- 1/2, peeled
Ginger- 1 inch or so
Kale - a couple of leaves (didn't exactly measure, let's say a handful)
1 Cucumber

You can always alter the measurements to your taste and preference or add more apple for sweetness. 

Be sure to give it a good stir/shake before drinking...
Enjoy & cheers!

(p.s. i'm so sorry i haven't blogged in that uni is done for the summer i will be here more often!)

DIY Tie Dyeing :)

The past couple weeks have been super cold in the Toronto area with temperatures as low as -20 aswell as a horrible ice storm that happened just before Christmas. Being confined inside we decided to embark on a very "summer-esque" activity - tie dyeing! I bought this tie dye kit with the intention of doing it in the summer, but unfortunately never got around it. Plus, what an awesome way to get rid of the Winter time blues. 

We didn't follow any specific techniques, just kind of tied and folded them in any random way, the same goes for the dying part. We're really really happy with the results, considering not knowing how they would turn out. 

  This effect reminds us alot of a water colour painting, so awesome. 
The Salvador Dali, Frida Kahlo & Han Solo shirt were all from Black Market vintage in Toronto.

We've been trying to experiment with other materials other than t-shirts and plan to tie dye in the near future.

What are you favorite techniques?? We'd love to know!
