by naming this photo diary “winter,” i would like to declare snowpocalypse 2013 officially over. hopefully. although, i’ve most likely jinxed montreal into an everlasting winter – but things are beginning to look up around here. finally some sunshine after many months of grey skies, tundra-like winds and approximately 12 feet of snow. i actually had to shovel my way into my house, and let me tell you. i did not sign up for shoveling.
it’s been a hard couple months in every sense of the word, but the new year brought big changes and the prospect of summer is keeping my spirits up. i had a solid couple adventures this winter, which, along with drinking and hibernation, is pretty much the only thing that stops me from going completely bat shit insane during these dreary months (dark when i wake up, dark when i leave the office). so, read on to see what i got up to (i know you’re all mega interested, so try to contain yourselves)..
adventures in falafel making resulted in me making hummus. twice. i threw a tantrum. i finally succeeded though, after i had calmed down enough to realize i could mash chickpeas with a potato masher instead of a blender.
alpine life! trip to mont sutton in quebec with my homies from the CSSC
this was the light at the end of the tunnel for me this winter. headed to the BPM festival with some of my best friends! read my festival review here!
memories from BPM – me and my main girl, miss charlie brown (aka nolan brown) at tINI & the gang
an anti-valentine’s day surprise from my best girl, esther (aka dj e.steria)
my friends and i were lucky enough to attend the vernissage for en masse founder jason botkin’s solo show, ALL KIN. stunning work! you can check out my interview with jason here
finally, a new little lens photo essay. some gorgeous shots of montreal, taken by my friend karolina lev with a holga toy camera. check out the rest here!
proud moments. i work on contract with a catering company, and for quebec’s annual dancing with the stars charity event, we all had our make up done like kiss. unfortunately, i got stuck with the two non-make up artists who painted a reject star on my face and then covered it with sparkles. still fun though.
a relic from mexico! a tiny sugar skull that i had to fight to get. and by that i mean, do shots of tequila with a vendor, put on a wrestling mask and take obscene photos with him. i kept it straight up classy in mexico.
