Lately I have been fangirling at every puppy that walks by me on the streets of Toronto. It’s hilarious. Like every single one I walk by I start screaming and go ‘PUPPY’. I’ve adapted this from my roommate and I am totally ok with it. So while I was on Tumblr searching the tag #PUPPY this lovely artist Yago Partal came up. Immediately I died laughing and decided holy shit I NEED to blog about this..

AND THIS IS WHY

let me introduce Yago Partal’s ZOO PORTRAITS

too kewl 4 skewl

The whole entire time I look at them I’m thinking ‘damn you got some swaag’.

I ‘m totally saving all of these and making them my desktop background..

Carola tends to make pieces that go together in a collection based off of a certain concept (like most artists). Many of them are super intense and conceptual – my brain kind of hurts trying to figure them out. ART.

Here are my favourite pieces from each collection – click the titles to see the full collection and inspiration.

//Fun Fact: Carola is Italian, therefore here is the link to GOOGLE TRANSLATOR. Have fun!//

Here’s an artist with PATIENCE.

MICHAL TAHARLEV creates art pieces by poking holes into canvases with a needle using the style of pointillism to create depth and shadows. I love how the canvases are physically damaged yet appear so delicate. The images chosen to portray are old family photos – making the images quite personal.

“The use of a needle on a photo is the violent act of damaging and obsessing over memories, yet in a very strict manner, it gives a new meaning to the innocence and the unknown future the photos hold.” – Michal Taharlev

I love it. Its deep, delicate, and beautiful. Enjoy her pieces everyone!

Credit goes to ODDITYCENTRAL, DESIGN MILK, and IGNANT for being awesome and providing me with her pieces and information about this lovely artist.

Hello cuties!

I have been doing nothing but abuse Starbuck’s WIFI and work a couple of shifts for the past few weeks. Life hasn’t been hectic, life hasn’t been exciting, but at least I’m keeping myself amused with Macbook selfies!

Friendly words of advise – if there is nothing to do and you are bored out of your mind LEAVE YOUR HOUSE. I have been rocking adventures around Toronto, and going for walks whenever I please.

Here are some snapshots of the beautiful scenery I come across. There will also be the occasional instagram screenshot of Tyler the Creators face, and random images from my Camera Roll. Have fun!

Lets start with my neighbourhood!!
(which is pretty gorgeous)

OH HEY – Totally blogging about Hannah cause it’s her birthday and we’ve been blog-obsessed with each other since I was in Grade 11 (forever ago). I know its Interior Design day – but #yolo.

HANNAH IS AWESOME and from California. She loves coffee, going on adventures with her bffl ALYSSA, and taking pictures of ALL THE THINGS. Her blog consists of beautiful photographs, her face, and playlists that enlighten my ears with beautiful sounds.

Here is a collection of photos over various posts from the lovely Hannah that I find absolutely gorgeous. (REMEMBER SHE TAKES THESE PHOTOS HERSELF BECAUSE SKILL – so give credit lovelies!)

Alyssa and her being total babes
