I love how the Universe has a way of putting the best people in your life when you least expect it. In 2008, I had recently arrived in Wellington, New Zealand, on a working holiday visa (do it!!). After a breakup, I was looking for a new place to live and saw an ad on TradeMe for a room in a house. I knew it was the right place the moment I got there, and I ended up making some of the best friends of my life.

Ash and Jess Wellington

Ash and I were fast friends. We’ve been able to travel together and have kept in touch since I’ve moved back to Canada. We even met up in NYC recently. When I lived with her, Ash was finishing up her photography studies and since she’s graduated she’s worked with designers and models to produce a prolific amount of innovative fashion photography under her label dinosaurtoast.

In these gorgeous photos, Amber Dallas models our bangles and rings. Here are some of my favourites:




Special thanks to golden model Amber Dallas. Thank you, Ash for making this happen while we’re on opposite ends of the globe!

underwater statues by Jason deCaires Taylor

Have you seen Jason deCaires Taylor‘s underwater sculptures?


The Silent Evolution

400 life-size figures. Near Cancun / Isla Mujeres, Mexico. I really want this to be my next scuba diving trip!

The statues form an artificial reef, which helps to take pressure off natural reefs, are made from durable, secure and environmentally sensitive materials. They can support an entire ecosystem.

If you think this is getting slightly creepy, just wait til you see what happens at night…. read more »


Gorgeous time lapse video of New Zealand mountainscape

Mt Ruapehu Timelapse from Jared Brandon Productions on Vimeo.

Jared Brandon experimented with time lapse video during the downseasons (he’s a wedding photographer) and amazing results. For you Lord of the Rings fans, this is the real life Mount Doom. I trekked across this area, the Tongariro Crossing, during the day and it is breathtaking (literally!)  read more »
