Who’s your favourite Pokemon? I’ll add it in my list of to-dos next!

Playdoh Pokemon!

For my anniversary present, Nash bought me a pack of 36 Play-Doh! I love Play-Doh but I didn’t have it around as a kid because my mom thought it was too messy.

The 36 colours lend to tons of possibilities so I thought what better way to use them than to try and make as many Pokemon as I can?

I started with my favourite of course…. Pikachu!

These are the colours I used for him!

I decided to make a Tumblr page to journal all our Pokemon Playdoh creations so far! You can find it at:

Building a Ferris Wheel

Missing carts because I broke them

Missing carts because I broke them

I love The Bloggess because she openly talks about her issues with anxiety and depression in a rather funny manner. Not too long ago she shared how she builds random mini ferris wheels as a way to relax. So I hit up Amazon and found my own.

DSCF2210The set arrived in a flat envelope in the mail. It was much smaller than I thought!

Inside were two metal sheets of pieces and instructions. Everything was self-explanatory, just a bit tedious and time consuming.

DSCF2212It took me a while to delicately remove the pieces. There were extra parts of carts but not the main frame of the cart itself, so I broke like 6 while trying to fold them in the exact position for them to hang on the ferris wheel. Halfway through I realized tweezers made things way easier. I had bought pliers prior to receiving this, but didn’t realize everything was so tiny.

This was probably 2 hours into the project. It took a while to properly understand how to delicately fold things so that they stayed in place. Once I got the hang of building carts, I was in a groove. It was hard to concentrate on anything else while holding such delicate pieces so it was such a relaxing activity to do. To literally be forced to forget about everything else!

There may have been missing carts (because the broken ones were impossible to superglue) I thought my final product was a masterpiece! I’m super proud to have dedicated time to building something super random and actually completing it. It was the offline break my mind needed.

I totally want to do this again and am already researching other sets (there are some super geeky ones). They’re inexpensive enough to be okay with screwing one up or leaving them on the sidewalk for a child to find.

Terre Bleu Lavender Farm

IMG_0045Yesterday, my parents and I visited Terre Bleu┬áLavender farm near Milton. Unfortunately, a cold winter and late frost in May has stunted their growth so they weren’t as long and purple as they could have been.

IMG_0023What did grow was still a beautiful purple and spelt wonderful and relaxing. I took a tour of the facility and learnt a great deal about the healing properties of lavender.

IMG_9975The place has only been open to public for the past 2 years. A beautiful wooden shop acts as the main entrance.

IMG_9978There were a few different types of lavender for different uses, cooking, oil production etc. It takes many rows of lavender in order to create a few millilitres of oil, which explains why pure oil is so expensive!

IMG_0107They also had their own bee hives, which were seeing a decrease in bees due to spraying of pesticides. Terre bleu produces it’s own pure lavender honey.

DSCF2244After the tour ended, we had some lavender ice cream from the shop. It was delicious!

IMG_0015Teddy loved the smell of the fields.

Here are some more random photos and selfies.

Camera Battery Faces

Did this so my camera batteries don't get mixed up with anybody else's #wayhome

A photo posted by Tiana Feng (@tianafeng) on

I’m off to Wayhome this weekend! I had to order a bunch of extra batteries for both cameras over the weekend. One of my friends told me that at a festival when she was charging her battery, someone else took hers by accident and left her with a much older one. It’s an honest mistake that could totally happen to anybody.

So I decided to prevent this by putting sticker faces all over my batteries. I received this a while back from one of my Lootcrates, but I never found a perfect use for them until now. Nobody will steal batteries that look alive right?
