Autumn In Film & Moving Into Winter

29 November 2017


I had been meaning to use my Olympus OM-10 which once belonged to my Grandad. It hasn't been used in so many years, and when I saw that it had been left in the loft in its camera bag gathering dust, I thought it would be a good idea to have a go at using a roll of 35mm colour film and take the camera for a test run around the parks and nature trails. I was inspired to go out and take some photos after reading Carrie (Adventures in Film - Part #1) and Amber's (35mm Diaries) posts, who have both used a 35mm camera and I really loved the outcome from their photos!

Autumn Playlist

22 November 2017


Although we're nearly coming to the end of Autumn, I thought I would share what music I have been listening to throughout this season! I don't tend to talk a lot about music on the blog, but I love creating seasonal content and thought it would be a good idea to start sharing a round up of the music I've been listening to in each of the seasons. My Spotify playlists are ever growing as I just love finding new music to listen to. Scouring through the top playlists and searching for recommendations from others, I'm always looking for music to add to my own selection of playlists.

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Cookies

19 November 2017


It's almost becoming a tradition that every birthday I treat myself to a new recipe book. My birthday was last month and after a look around the bookshops I decided to buy one of the Great British Bake Off books that were on offer. Speaking on The Great British Bake Off, what did we all make of that series? Although I missed seeing Mary, Mel and Sue, I still love everything to do with that show! I'm happy that Sophie won (although I knew in advance since Prue's Twitter mistake, oops!), she was one of my favourites from the start! I'm making up for no Bake Off on tv by enjoying baking something different each week!

Autumn Wanderings & A Little Catch Up

10 November 2017


There's nothing like a walk through the nature trails or the woods in Autumn. I love going for walks all year round but Autumn has always been my favourite time for a wander. Especially when the air is so crisp and fresh, the leaves golden and dancing in the breeze, spotting all the wild berries, mushrooms and wildlife. I find it so peaceful and relaxing, it's just so nice to spend some time away from the house and embrace the season of Autumn. It's nice to be away from everything, away from all my recent worries and away from the stress and anxiety I've been trying my best to keep at bay.
