Berries Blue and Red

I somehow hoarded a bunch of free product coupons...enough for 14 boxes of berries. Thanks Special K! I redeemed them all in a span of a week, so needless to say there ended up being an abundance of fruit. I got some 2lb boxes of strawberries, some 1lb and pints of blueberries. I thought about getting rasberries, but I've got those growing in the backyard and they're taking over.

Elle Canada 2015 Beauty Grand Prix

This past February, I was sent a hefty box filled with full sized skincare and cosmetics from Elle Canada to test and evaluate them. The products were all concealed with pretty holographic stickers so they remained brand-less to keep reviews unbiased, but if you're a regular shopper, you'll recognize most of the packaging. As a first time juror, I was thrilled. It was like Christmas in spring!

Mother's Day, Paper Flowers

Better late than never, right? Happy (belated) Mother's Day to moms and mother figures out there!
I spent it having family dinner with my grandmother and made Rich's mom a little bouquet of paper poppies, a lemon poppy seed bundt cake and a card. I've been feeling crafty.

Late Night Shenanigans Downtown

I can't remember the last time I wandered around downtown until the wee hours of the morning and took the "vomit comet" home. Our evening started at 4:30pm, when we took the train down to Yonge and Dundas.

*Excuse the phone photos. Movie screening = no real camera.*

Avocado Toast for Breakfast

Wake up, prepare a cup of tea, make breakfast and lounge with Tank. An empty house, open windows, with only the sounds of song birds and the occasional car driving by, and no one shuffling about. (Individuals in this house like to put on slippers and shuffle their feet about rather than walk- such a pet peeve). The perfect morning.

Oven Poached Salmon & Garlic Shrimp

A light and refreshing dinner of poached salmon with dill and lemon and sides of sautéed garlic butter shrimp and steamed green beans. It was quick, effortless and delicious. Yum!

SongCook's Korean Restaurant

I met my friend K for dinner a couple Thursday's ago and we decided on Korean food to curb our cravings. It was kind of chilly, and a little rainy so heading to SongCook's was the perfect decision. We got there at around 7pm and could already tell they were understaffed, as we had to wait to be greeted by a host, followed more waiting before we were even seated. 

About

Hi, I'm Janetta from Toronto. I cook, bake and make big messes. I photograph nearly everything and those photos will most likely end up being posted here. I've got a little black cat named Tank, who's super cute and a little bit nosy. You'll see a lot of photos of her too!

I currently shoot with a Canon 550D. I've shot with a Canon 500D as well as a Canon Pro1 before I drowned one and dropped the other. I also own a little Nikon P5100.
