The International Fringe Festival is in town! I went to a few productions last year, and LOVED it! Unfortunately, not too many of my friends are “fringers”, and Ashley (my fellow fringer) is out of town. So, I haven’t been … Continue reading

“Too Close” – Alex Clare — LOVE!

I was stuck in traffic today (ugh, Edmonton, why is there construction everywhere?!), and I heard this song on Sonic 102.9.

I was so excited I immediately turned up my sound and started swaying my head to the beat. I was immersed in the song for 2 minutes; 2 minutes I didn’t waste cursing the construction gods.

Obviously, I typed in a few key lyrics into my iPhone and came home and downloaded it!

What do you think?

Instamoments – #yeg, #yyc, #yba

27 Days! I’m freaking out a lil’ bit. As you all know I have made plans to move back to Ontario and yet these plans have been thwarted by what we’ll refer to as insanity. Don’t worry. I am not … Continue reading

Being Alone and Instagram Moments

This gallery contains 6 photos.

I leave for my trip in exactly a month. Nervous? Honestly, not overly. There are moments when I get a rush of anxiety at the thought of being on a plane for 8.5 hours (GASP), but it quickly passes when … Continue reading

Fantastic Food Friday

Last weekend Ashley and I headed to Sugarbowl to celebrate her passing another one of her exams. If you’ve never been to Sugarbowl, let me tell you, you are missing out! The atmosphere is relaxed, the art work is always … Continue reading

Instagram weekend via my new iPhone 4S

For those of you that follow me on twitter, or know me personally, you are aware that I finally broke down and purchased a new iPhone 4s.
I struggled with the idea for a while since the entire cell phone infrastructure bothers me: the constantly changing technology, incentives to purchase new phones before they are broken, the lack of proper disposal (e-waste) and because I didn’t really want to spend the money ($200).
But, after doing some research I realized that if I wanted to stay connected while abroad in Europe I was going to need a better phone than my very slow, and outdated, iPhone 3.
The perks?
1. iMessenger is free and unlimited with wifi
2. FaceTime is also free and unlimited with wifi
3. It’s way faster!
4. The apps are updated and more user friendly. I was never able to blog with my 3, but I am currently using my iPhone to blog!
5. Which brings me to my next point: I can instagram, message, and blog from my phone as long as I have wifi!
The perks are endless, but it still frustrates me because I know by Fall 2012 there will be a new, and better, iPhone on the market that will put mine to shame, and our consumer minds will make us want to buy it.
(I will do a post about e-waste soon, just not from my phone, it’s still not as awesome as blogging from my Mac).
Anyways, this is the perfect way to share my instagram weekend with you!
Enjoy!

This was taken at the ‘End of Steel’ park in Edmonton, parallel to 104 street and just south of Saskatchewan drive.

This is by far my favourite picture so far with instagram (filtered also with PicFx). It’s a bench at the end of my block, positioned perfectly with a deep-red coloured house in the background. Couldn’t ask for a better shot.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Dreaming

This week’s challenge was to “play around” with long exposures. I have an older SLR camera packed away somewhere, but I always use my iPhone (instagram) for my photo challenges. I love the ease of just whipin’ out my phone … Continue reading
