Phone Photo Diary: Kittens and September

September’s been pretty nice so far. Besides math class and really long subway rides, school is fine. My family rescued this kitten from the side of the road during the last few days of summer. It’s gotten healthy again and living in a new home. It’s been raining a lot! I’ve developed a love for taking photos rain, it looks great in photos. On a less serious subject I finally went to Chipotle and bought a $10 burrito. It was definitively good but I couldn’t finish it!

September Songs

Water Bottles

I hardly remember a time when using plastic water bottles was the norm. I remember being in grade 3 and insisting on buying one of those huge $30 metal Sigg water bottles. Now  re-usable water bottles aren’t just an eco-friendly thing to have (although it still is of course) it’s become one more accessory to add.  I find a good water bottle makes it easier to stay hydrated through out the day. Here are some of my favourties which are cute but also practical.

The Bubba water bottle is cool because it has a straw and is also a pretty good thermos. I use the big glass one around the house because it just has a flip lid. If you’re looking for a cheap option Dollerama sells these tiny water bottles. They’re super light and seal well. My most recent addition is the glass water bottle with a silicone cover on the far right. It’s nice because you don’t have to worry about the lid coming off. I’ve also tried out the super light Vapur water bottles but it was super hard to close and got a hole in it (my backpack was soaked!). They’re all great alternatives to using a plastic water bottle though!

Fall Reads

I’ve read a few too many books this summer about road trips and and very predictable romantic relationships. Here are some books that for the most part branch off of those plots.

Delirium- A dystopian novel about a world were love is viewed as a disease.
Avalon High- A modern take on the King Arthur legend. A nice mix of fantasy with a modern setting.
An Abundance of Katherines- A trip to a small town with an unexpected romance.
The Awakening- A supernatural story about a teenaged girl who can raise the dead. I’m not normally into books like that but it’s perfect for Halloween!

iPhone Wallpapers: Plants

Here are some iPhone wallpapers that I made from scratch featuring some cute plants. I made them using the dimensions for the iPhone 4/4s but they could also work for most phones (apologies to land-line and flip phone users) Hope you enjoy!
