Closing Thoughts | 2014

Wow. I can't believe that in just a few hours, the clock will strike midnight and it will be 2015.

This year has been filled with crazy ups and downs, lots of madness, tears (whether happy or sad), laughter and events. And I wouldn't change a thing about it.

Another post sharing some of the music which has been taking over my life slowly but surely, and figured it should do the same for you. :)

My Apartment.

Now that my apartment is coming together - slowly but surely, I figured I would start introducing you to it. As the previous few weeks have been incredibly rainy, gloomy and cold - I have spent a lot of time lying on this couch in the corner and reading. It feels so homey and cozy, I love it.

October Catch Up

Hello beautiful people of the inter web.

I figured it was time for us to catch up a little bit seeing as I haven't really posted anything in quite a while and I am just now working on coming back with more content. 

So anyway... In the last month, the following things have happened:

My Mum.

I wanted to take a minute today and honour somebody very special to me... My Mum. As with any family, we have our issues and difficulties and we are all far from perfect. But I seriously admire this woman.

Monday Inspiration - People

As I was taking a walk around the old city during my lunch break with my camera, I ran into this guy.  He was busking on the road leading to the Western Wall. I asked him whether I could take his picture, to which he agreed immediately. There was something intriguing about him to me so I sat down and asked him to tell me his story.

June Reading

This month has been and is going to be all about rereading some of my all time favourite books. Mainly due to the fact that I haven't had any spare time to hunt for new books to be honest, but also simply because I love these books just that much. Here's to rereading favourites in June!

So my apologies for that, but I am back! And here's an entire post dedicated to my time in the Philippines!

May Favourites - Not Another Favourites Post.

As I have mentioned in previous posts, this past month has been absolutely mental, so I do not have many new things that I have been loving this month. Which means that I have decided this month's favourites is going to be a general blog post favourites, as I have been doing lots of that on the go this past month.

Found through Breanna Rose - my new wallpaper.

THIS photographer's work with time lapsing dancers in motion blows my mind.

From Roses wrote a brilliant posts on some honest thoughts on blogging, which really makes you think.

Tools to being more productive, through apps.

Soymilkblog's summer uniform.

THIS cracked me up quite a bit. Funny things students say.

Getting into the traveling spirit by reading about other's experiences and favourite destinations.

THIS want list matches mine very closely.

Have you ever wondered how to make cookies and cream popsicles? Well, here's how.

Things to think about as a new blogger.

That's all this time! See you all tomorrow!

Music of the Week #13

In no particular order this time, here's seven things that have been put onto my playlist this past week and I can't seem to get enough of.

What I'm Loving - General

Here are a few things that I have really been enjoying this past week, including blog posts, youtube channels, interesting reads and much more.

Firstly, the things pictured above, Dodger by Terry Pratchett and CHERRIES.

THIS seriously made me laugh so hard that it woke up my neighbours. Well maybe not that hard, but it did definitely make me giggle out loud.

New blog find. Beautiful images, solid content as well as a good blog design.

THIS youtube channel cracks me up so much. Whenever I'm in need of a little boost of happiness, this is most likely the channel that I will turn to for a few laughs.

Mint done right in interior design? I am a big fan of the mint coloured kitchen in this post, one day it shall be mine.

Short post today but be sure to check those links out :) Let me know what you've been loving lately.

Dealing with Lack of Inspiration

I stole this idea of giving a "Piece of Advice for today" off of the 'Blog Every Day in May' challenge set by Story of My Life. Though I haven't participated in each day, I figured I would do a few of them as I do blog every day anyway ;)

My piece of advice is to do with lack of inspiration. I feel this is something that all of us will have dealt with or will eventually deal with in our lives. Every blogger will hit writers block at one point or another. Every photographer will run out of fresh creative ideas eventually. Now, be sure that this lack of inspiration will not last forever. I've been through this a few times, and I can tell you, you always come through the other end more motivated than ever. Life will always catch up with you, events will keep on taking place that may discourage you but as soon as you pass all of them, you will be much better for it, and much more grateful when life doesn't kick you in the arse constantly.

So my advice would be to just keep pushing yourself. Even if you don't feel motivated, just push through, find a new environment to work in (discover new places to shoot, new cafes to sit and write in, etc...) and try and do what you know best. The rush will come back.

Just putting a few of my thoughts out there in rant form ;)

Journal Day #11 - Constructive Criticism

This weeks prompt, courtesy of Sometimes Sweet:

'Sometimes it can be hard to hear criticism from others. I know for me it's something I may always struggle with - being a people pleaser, etc. At the same time though, constructive criticism can be very helpful, and allow us to look at ourselves in a new light and maybe even grow and change. Take a step out of yourself. If you were on the outside looking in, how would you critique yourself? What things do you see that you could change or work on? This isn't about tearing ourselves down; it's about really looking at ourselves and seeing where there's room for growth.'

Warning: This is quite a lengthy post.

Cheers to Anxiety...

I can not tell you how many times I have google search the words 

I have had an extremely bad day today, when it comes to my anxiety. BUT - I have found quite a few helpful tips from along the past few months/year that have really helped me cope with my anxiety as it's begun to progress. I get anxiety "attacks" when I am faced with tests or decisions that need to happen right there and now. I am good with planning ahead for my future, but once those plans actually get close and it becomes time to implement those plans, I notice the physical symptoms kick in - my heart races, my hands begin to sweat, my eyes wander and settle on things such as the clock ticking on the wall, and I have a hard time concentrating. Now, thankfully, I do not have anxiety as bad as a lot of others do but I suffer with it enough to know what a bother it can be. So enough with introductions, here are a few things that help me.

Suzy Ariel Makeup & Hair Photoshoot

Heya kids. 

I'm not sure how many of you are aware of this but I am a photographer. BOOM. And it's not very often that I share my photography stuff on this blog, so I figured I would this time.

Lotus Biscuit Smoothie

Is it only me who grew up with having Lotus biscuits EVERYWHERE? Well anyway, naturally when I saw this spread, I fell in love. So last night, I figured I would make myself a little smoothie out of it, and then share it with you. So here you go. Fastest and best thing you will ever drink. The below makes enough for two glasses, so obviously add more or less depending on how many people you are serving.

Journal Day #6

This weeks prompt, courtesy of Sometimes Sweet:

"Everyone has different things that keep them going. Sometimes it's the people around us, other times it might be what's waiting for us on the other side of hard work. Whatever it may be, there's usually some sort of motivation to get up every day, get things done, or maybe even go the extra mile. With that said, what would you say is your biggest motivation in life? Has it always been this way?"

What I'm Loving - TV Series

Here's a few TV Series I've been loving lately.

No. 1 - Suits

LOVE this show. I'm completely hooked. I hate waiting a week to find out what happens next. Ugh.

No. 2 - How I Met Your Mother

No surprise there. I'm a massive How I Met Your Mother addict. I watch them over and over and over again and find them just as funny the second time around as the first.


I can't even tell you how many times I have seen all the episodes of this show. I could probably quote quite a few of them. Whenever I'm down and in need of a pick me up, I go running to FRIENDS.

No. 4 - Community 

The new season is so hilarious. Thank you Dan Harmon for being such a legend!

No. 5 - Sherlock

Again, hooked. Started watching from the beginning, and I can't stop. So good.

What've you been loving lately?
