Phoneography and Non-SLR Challenge: Nature

Sally’s Challenge this week is Nature. Click the link to see her lovely photos and to take part.

Recently we’ve been having some crazy weather-lovely sunny days mixed with hailstones and wind. Nature has been making going to the beach a lottery!

All photos taken with iPhone 5S and edited with Aviary.

Weekend Wishes

Happy Weekend everyone! This is a special weekend for many reasons. First off, it’s a long weekend, which means it’s three whole sleeps until we’re back to work.

It’s also Mike’s birthday today :-)

So there are celebrations to be had and cocktails to be made. I’ll have to try some new recipes because Mike’s favourite cocktails are blue.

To take advantage of the long weekend, and to try out the new car Mike bought himself, we’re off on a road trip tomorrow. The forecast is awful and if it’s anything like the weather we’ve had so far this morning, it’s going to be miserable outside. We are going to the “sunny” south east though, so fingers crossed we might have a bit of sun and see some of the lovely landscape.

Weekend Wishes

It’s been another busy week. 2015….slow down! This weekend I really want to slow down and catch up with people.

It’s already off to a good start. Having had a lovely dinner and giggles with family last night and a lie-in this morning, I’m feeling ready to tackle the rest of the day!

I still have to go through all the holiday photos and organise which ones stay and which ones go. (There may or may not still be some photos from our New Zealand trip 2 years ago that also need to be sorted out……..)

To help me out with all this I’ll be listening to my current obsession, Taylor Swift. She can do no wrong!

And seeing as it’s spring, it’s time to go through my wardrobe and clear out anything that hasn’t been worn recently and try to add some colour to the black and grey.

There are some good ideas on the site, without being too colour-mad!

Have a lovely weekend :-)

The Road to Las Vegas

After Santa Monica we started on the road to Las Vegas, taking as much of Route 66 as we could. I really, really loved this part of the trip. So much desert and nothingness and at the same time very random and weird things! I’m used to lots of green and never being too far away from anything, so this was so different for me. As a result, there are a lot of photos of space!

Weekend Wishes

This week has been hard. It seems that two weeks off has completely ruined whatever bit of a healthy routine I had going. Also the 8 hour time difference has wrecked my sleeping pattern. Jet lag has hit…big time.

I always follow these tips and it usually it just takes me one or two days to get over it, but this time it’s lasted all week. I’m hoping the weekend will sort it out.

Because of the lack of sleep, the desire to cook healthily after work is low! I’m hoping to try some of these recipes this week.

Of course, if I can’t manage to cook properly, exercise has well and truly been abandoned. However, I should be able to work these exercises into my schedule next week….fingers crossed!

So, this is my message for jet lag….

I aim to have things back to normal asap. Any suggestions would be really appreciated!

Have a lovely weekend :-)
