How beautiful and ethereal are these images for Tutu du Monde? Watching Keira on stage for her end of year ballet show last weekend, we couldn't help but love the little ladies in their costumes. How perfect would these beautiful dresses and tutus be on stage? Knowing Keira, these would be perfect for everyday but most importantly, during that magical make-believe time.
These dresses and accessories are slightly more sophisticated in style and colour. I also love the vintage look & feel to them as well. Definitely pieces to keep for the next generation to come. Another factor I love? Sizes are available from 1 to 10/11 (depending on the style)!

It's almost the end of May and things are finally coming to an end. Things meaning, school, weekend & school activities. We will finally reclaim our week nights and weekends! Trying to keep track of Keira's school work, ballet, skiing & swimming had us turning our wheels at full speed. It was hard for me to take on any new projects on the side but I'm hoping now I'll have more time to devote to the fun stuff.
Keira had her end of year ballet spectacular today. Dance has really made such a big comeback the last few years what with all the shows and contests on tv and online it was no wonder that it takes 3 days, 3 separate shows to showcase all the dancers in the dance school Keira attends. From classical ballet to ballet jazz, jazz, funky & contemporary... all were showcased in the show.
I wish I could have videotaped Keira's performance (no cameras or camcorders were allowed) because she was out of this world! Ok, I know I'm biased but really, she was so cute and good. All the dancers were incredible. It showed how hard they practiced and worked the entire year.
This year, Keira and her ballet class were cuisinières (cooks!) and the song they danced to was to the theme song to Julie & Julia. And of course, when the show was over and the girls came out to meet the parents, Papa gave his little ballerina a bouquet of flowers she could hardly hold up herself. The perfect end to the Victoria Day long weekend. Hope you all enjoyed yours!

It's been a while since my last post. That sounds like a confession doesn't it? Forgive me friends, for I have sinned... It's been a while since I did that too (gone to church, went to confession etc).
Instagram has been my downfall. It's so easy and lovely and addictive and and..
So this weekend, I vowed to dust off my buddy Pentax and take some shots. Saturday morning seemed like a perfect time to study this tweeny little thang called Keira. I found her on her little sofa eyeing me suspiciously while taking bites out of her warmed up chocolatines & watching Something & Ally/Wizards of Waverly/Next Step/whatever other title (all of these shows seem the same to me).
These are some of the many expressions & faces of the species... Kiki. On a Saturday morning...

Have you heard? Er Shun & Da Mao will call Canada home for the next 10 years. On loan from China, these 2 pandas will call Toronto & then Calgary their home for the next few years.
I found a little panda in our house just today! She's really cute, cuddly, occasionally fierce and I must say.. she can be very very messy. She can also be extremely... goofy!
