My first ever roll with Lomo’s Lady Grey 400. I’m pretty pleased with how it’s turned out. I’m, generally, not a big fan of Lomo’s film, but this turned out just lovely! The MXs have a quality that’s really charming and turned out better than any I’ve done in the past! Advertisements Continue reading Lomography Lady Grey 400
It’s not been the easiest of few months and it’s easy to lose some perspective on what your focus should be, so I was looking for a planner to give me some guidance. I’ve always been a bullet journal-er but I’d lost sight of my goals and aims in live. Enter: Passion Planner. I just love the designs, it looks so lovely compared to some … Continue reading How I use my Passion Planner
TL;DR? Well take this away with you – quitting something that makes you unhappy is brave; don’t be a coward and just do it. Life will get better. I’ve always lived by the mantra: “If something makes you happy, do it; if it doesn’t, don’t.” I repeat it over and over to people. I never thought I’d deviate from that path, until I found myself … Continue reading Quitting = Failing?
I’ve not long since seen my first big dancing milestone – my one year lindy-versary and in that time I’ve found myself being a regular in four different cities. I dread questions like “where did you learn to dance” or “oh, where did you dance before?” because my answer has to be: “well, I learnt in Birmingham, lived in Cambridge for a bit, now I … Continue reading A Year as a Dancing Nomad
Around a year ago I discovered a TED talk by Brene Brown called ‘The Power of Vulnerability’. It’s probably the first Ted talk that I’ve ever watched start to finish, if I’m being really honest. If you haven’t watched it, get on the bandwagon here: At the time of this discovery I was having a really rough battle with self confidence thanks to an ex-boyfriend. … Continue reading What I learnt from ‘Daring Greatly’ by Brene Brown
Writing has always been a love of mine, it’s been a go-to for as long as I can remember. It’s my escape from the real world and a welcome excursion into a fictional land or even into the depths of my own mind. Little did I know, accepting a job where I write for a living would completely obliterate any enjoyment for writing. I wanted … Continue reading Writers Block?
This has been my first full year with lindy hop in my life; on one hand it doesn’t feel like two minutes since I went to my first class at the Birmingham Dance Exchange but on the other hand it feels like that was forever ago. Now Christmas is out of the way, I can turn my thoughts to new years, where I’m spending in … Continue reading Lindy Hop: A Year On
Recently, I acquired some Fujichrome Velvia 50 expired film. It was discontinued way back in 2005, so that means it’s at least 10 years out of date – I’m not sure how out of date this particular roll was, though. I was really intrigued by what it would look like, but I wasn’t sure whether I’d get any usable shots at all! I really didn’t help … Continue reading Using Expired Film
2016 has been one of the most important years of my life and it’s seen so much change and I’ve hit so many life milestones. Looking back, I can’t really comprehend what’s happened this year and how many twists and turns my life has encountered. It staggered me to look back at these and really see what’s hit me this year, so here’s a few … Continue reading 2016 In Review
