Over the last few weeks, many things are new to me. Being aged twenty four, for instance. My birthday rolled around in the beginning of May and since then, I have been giving myself every excuse to spend money as a "birthday gift" to me. Example: buying a crazy expensive, yet fanastical Nikon 3100 DSLR camera. I have not the slightest idea as to how to use it, but my father gave me a Kodak book on "How to take good pictures" from the early 1980's and I am determined to figure out how the dang contraption works. I've so far managed to get some good photos out of the thing with Jeramy's help. We did this most recent photoshoot this last weekend while were were in Peterborough enjoying the Thing in the Spring music festival (more to come on this later). This particular day, there was also the Broke Arts Fair happening where a lot of local artists were selling their artwork for under $50. I bought a fabulous handmade necklace made out of an old recycled key which was soldered to an old gold chain.Its pretty rad and is sure to make an appearance on ye old blog at some point.
Oh and also check out my new specs! I won these glasses in Erin's giveaway where Bonlook offered up a pair of glasses for the winner. And I won just in time for my birthday! Crazy timing. I chose the 5' o Clock Tea Havana Frames because I am obsessed with anything tortoise shell as well as their classic frame and gold detail on the arms was a great touch. Check out the site as they offer a great variety of vintage inspired glasses which are sure to complete your vintage look and at a great price!
