Remember how I was telling you that Kaylah and I took so many amazing jumping photos during this outfit shoot? Well...I think I have temporarily run out of jumping luck because I tried to take some during this one and it was probably my biggest jumping disaster to date. Like, so bad I can't even show you. There was underwear, awful faces, strange looking legs, you name it...it was probably bad. It is really hard to take jumping photos of yourself when you are using a self timer and only have one photo to get it right but I can usually manage one good one! Ha! So for those of you who struggle with jumping photos...even the pros have a bad day here and there. 

On to something more successful...Kaylah gave me some tips on doing gradient nails and I totally nailed these ones. I don't know why I didn't get a closer photo but trust me, they looked amazing. I have the hang of it now and I can't wait to try more colour combos. 

Today I am in Toronto hanging out because I will be taking some photos at an event later tonight. I hope you are all having a fun day!

  1. Those shoes are just too adorable! I love it! Also loving the hair girl, it's lookin great!

    Maybe you two should do a video tutorial for gradient nails, eh? :)

  3. Super fancy shoes!
    One might even go as far as to say, "Fancy Schmancy" buuuuuuuuuuut, I've already met my quota of how many times I can say "facy schmancy" in one day.
    I'll try to comment earlier.

    And also, I'm interested in these tips from Kaylah about the gradient nails...!?! I really love them, and want to attempt them myself, but it looks so intimidating!

    1. I was only there yesterday for the afternoon/evening. I have never actually been to Bunners but I tried their Lumberjack donut at the vegan cupcake contest thing a while back. Sooooo good. I hear they don't make that normally though.

      Delete
    2. We don't usually make the donuts :( but there is a new strawberry cupcake and french toast cupcake that's amazing. Bunners will have a booth at the vegetarian food fair this year- maybe the donuts will be back!
