Hello and happy Friday! I can't even begin to express how happy I am to be back at this blogging thing...I've missed this place!
While I have been away, not too much has changed...as you can tell I am still obsessing over instant-print photography and have a new "toy" with which to indulge my insta-madness! This little cutie is the Fuji-Film Instax Mini (the baby sister to my much much bigger Instax 210). It prints a credit-card sized photo (amazing!), and I am completely smitten! My brother and sister-in-law surprised me with this package at Christmas and thank goodness they did because I felt too guilty buying it for myself, although all signs were pointing to the inevitability of me doing just that.
I put her to use at Honey Bake Shop today which also happens to be my new favourite shop in the region...I have been eating clean for a while now and have been avoiding baking, baked goods and all things sugar but this shop is so darn cute from the outside and I have been intrigued by the gorgeous signage for a while, so in I ventured, and now I can't stop thinking about their decadent cupcakes and mouth-watering macarons. The graphic designer in me loves the branding of this shop; everything from the logo to that delicious honey-comb pattern is so well put-together. The atmosphere inside is tranquil and warm. The staff is kind (and generous with samplings) and even the patrons were chatty and sweet. A place has to be pretty special if it lifts your spirit and sends you on your way smiling, which is exactly what I was doing...from ear to ear.
If you're in the Uptown Waterloo area in the near future, head to Honey Bake Shop, you will not be disappointed I promise...and I highly recommend the raspberry champagne cupcake!
