I spent 10 days in Chicago over the summer and unlike the other times I've visited, I had a chance to document it this time with my DLSR. I've always been the type of traveller to leave the big camera at home until now (that I've started blogging). It always seemed so cumbersome to take care of a big camera while trying to have fun in a new city. And let's not talk about how most protective camera gear doesn't do anything to make your attire any cuter. I finally decided to keep all my camera equipment and girly stuff in a huge light pink tote bag and that's what I use nowadays if I want to have fun with my gear. If you have any recommendations on fashionable and efficient ways to carry a big camera out, I'd like to know 🙂
Besides visiting some local attractions and dining establishments, I also had the chance to pick up some different baking supplies that were difficult to find in Vancouver. Visiting bake ware shops is on my to-do list when I travel nowadays. It's always fun to find new products that you can't find at home. We drove all the way to the town of Cedersburg where Downtown Dough was located. It's a small but dedicated shop for bake ware. After having a ball in the shop, we walked around and I had time to capture just how "American" that particular Mid-West town was.
I hope you enjoy the photos and if you scroll to the bottom, you'll see the project I made with some of my new supplies including my new favourite edible pen.
Until next time.
Here are the some of the new baking supplies I purchased on the trip and the project I made with it:
I love the fact that you can make both bold and fine lines with this marker. Even the fine details like the tiny eyes on these bridal bears come out really well.
