I love that girl

How great are these polaroids of Amy Poehler? Taken in 1998 for a tv sketch show on comedy central they really highlight how ahhhmazing she is. Hehe. The monobrow one, so good. You can read more about it at NY Mag.

Goodbye Summer

The Japanese summer departed swiftly leaving me rather surprised and clutching at my winter coats. Unlike New Zealand where the weather dilly dallies between seasons Japan is all about the sharp and defined change of the seasons. I'm now dreading seeing Australian and New Zealand friends popping up in my news feed, bathed in light and leisurely sipping on wine. Ahh the envy. I'm a summer kid! That said, here are some snaps taken over the past few weeks.

Kyoto markets

Once a month the Nishiki markets are held in Kyoto. It's a good opportunity to rub shoulders (or elbows) with the locals in search of a bargain, and cast your eye over many a antique gem. I managed to score myself a beautiful soft vintage kimono that I intend to use as a dressing gown, and a bag of super tart mandarins - yum!  One of the best things about the market is the people watching. Above are some images my boyfriend captured as we wandered around. I love the guy in stripes!
