Such a beautiful, simple project. I think I’ll have to make a wind chime with my ceramics teacher at some point 🙂 If you are interested in ceramics, please check out her blog here.
Yesterday was such a wonderful day. It has been cold here, but we spent the whole day walking to one of our favourite areas and taking photos of the surrounds. The weather was so foggy, it seemed nearly impossible to take a bad photo!
The fog lent a mysterious air to our photos and made everything look dreamy and antiquated.
Before it got dark we got some really great shots, almost in sepia tone with a reddish hue. My only regret is that my lens is dirty and you can see some definite dirt in some of the shots. Maybe that just makes the shots look older? Haha.
I really enjoy these long meandering photo walks and it’s so nice to be able to do these walks in the winter. I hope you enjoyed some of my photos!
These looks amazing. I can’t wait to try this recipe!
This one’s for you!
For a cake that’s named after a vegetable, carrot cake is usually packed with copious amounts of sugar and oil. These scrumptious bliss balls are not. They’re wholesome, nutritious and naturally free from gluten, dairy, egg and refined sugar! Carrots are one of the best vegetable sources of beta-carotene, which the body converts to vitamin A. Vitamin A keeps our skin, hair, nails and eyes beautiful by promoting natural cell division, regenerating collagen, regulating oil production, and slowing the natural deterioration of eyesight as we age! So go on, make a batch, it’ll take you less than five minutes and your body will LOVE you for it (so will your tastebuds). Definitely an “I accidently ate the whole thing” dish. But, I don’t carrot all! (See what I did there?).
1 cup grated carrots
1 cup almond meal
6 large medijool dates

I was in Seoul in 2012. Here are some photos! I miss it and I hope to go back again soon! 🙂
Me being stupid-elevator-Seoul
Seoul is great so far. We are really enjoying it. We have been walking around everyday pretty much all day and the jet lag has been hard to shake off. Does that get harder as you get older? I don’t know. I don’t recall my mother or my in-laws being tired when visiting us in Japan-they were pretty much raring to go. But last night I slept through the night so I know I’ll feel much better today.
Hello Kitty Cafe!
The weather here has been gorgeous and we’ve been wearing t-shirts and no jackets everyday. It’s a lot more smoggy than I thought it would be and that took some getting used to but after the first couple of days, I didn’t notice it anymore. It was hard not to think of Japan, coming here and to draw comparisons even though I really didn’t want to. That…

A lovely blog and such a good idea, I wish I would have learned about this sooner. I love pot noodles, but not with all the sodium and MSG. I just simply don’t buy them. Can’t eat ramen when in Japan because it’s not vegetarian. This is easily modify-able and portable!
