Usually, when I do an outfit post or picture, I like to dress up and show you some pretty dress. But this time I thought I would show you a few of my casual wear and what I wear on a day to day basis. I must admit, as much as I love to dress up, I wouldn't exactly go to Tesco in them. So on a day to day basis, I'm usually in jeans and a top. ⠀

If I were to describe my style, it would be summed up in two words: quirky and fun. I'm sure you realise by now I don't like boring black fashion – I do fun, bright, colourful style. Case in point is this Collectif watermelon dress. You can't get more quirky and fun fashion than this, can you?⠀
I like my clothes to reflect a lot of my personality, eternally youthful while also quirky and fun. Yup, that pretty much summed up me. The saying, you are who you are by the clothes you wear, really does hold up with me.⠀
I'm still that little girl who had a dressing up box as a child and would play dress-up; now I just have a wardrobe filled with more clothes than I could ever need as my dressing up box. I still like to have fun with my clothes, and I haven't lost that childhood wonder about clothes. And I don't think I ever will.⠀
Overall, what I'm saying is that this Collectif watermelon dress reflects who I am as a person and also my style. I also believe it represents how fashion shouldn't be all serious; it should be fun and should put a smile on a person's face.⠀

Finding My Love for Photography

I have always considered myself more of a writer than a photographer, but over the past year, I have found myself loving photography more and more. Here how I been finding my love for photography.

I never saw myself as a photographer, I’d just leave all the snap taking to Richard as that is his job – being a professional photographer. In the same way, Richard leaves all the writing to me as I’m more of a writer than a photographer.

However, over the past year, I sort of been sneaking more and more into his terrain and going snap happy on my camera. I have found myself really enjoying the process of taking photos, editing it in Photoshop and then uploading it for you guys to see.

As I said before, I really never saw myself as a photographer or at least having in-depth knowledge of taking photos. I knew how a camera worked and basic things like depth of field and how to focus, but talks to me about Raw files or 15-55 mm lens and you would be faced with a blank stare.

So over the past year, I found myself wanting to learn more about photography and getting to grips with raw files and different lenses. Of course, I am having a teacher helping me and also it does that Richard talks non-stop about camera and photography. I do have to tell him to be quiet sometime.

Another thing we bonded on – is the enjoyment of going to a new place and photographing it. Over the past year, we been to Hastings, Lewes and don’t forget I took myself off to Oxford. We both enjoyed taking our camera and taking photos of what we see. It a little record of what we saw that day and a reminder that we been there and done that (also bought the t-shirt).

I now find that going out with my camera is like me leaving home with my phone or keys. It another accessory I wouldn’t dream of leaving home without.

This is something I’m going to keep doing throughout this year, taking photos of places I see and like. Of course, then documenting them on here. Finding my love for photography is more than a hobby (and job for that matter as I do often blog about what photos I’ve taken), it a way of life and it no different to a painter with a canvas.

I also do hope that over time throughout this year, I get to improve my skills and also to upgrade my camera equipment. I am feeling like my Canon 600d is now getting a little old and there so many better cameras available at the moment. But as my teacher keep telling me, it not the equipment that matters the most – it the guy (or girl) that’s pressing the shutter button.

That my plan for 2018, ok not my overall plan as well I don’t really have a plan. But my plan is to keep finding my love for photography and to keep snapping away. Who knows, maybe one day I might have my own photo gallery and studio – ok I’m getting ahead of myself. But a girl can dream.

    It’s interesting that A lot of photographers I know ended up doing photography unexpectedly. I actually went to college for animation and came out as a retoucher and photographer. It’s crazy how photography has a way of drawing people in.

    I’ve actually been noticing that I really enjoy photography as well! Blogging is great because we get to find all of these other things we enjoy doing as well since it takes so many different skills. Great post and I’m excited for you that you found another passion!

    I am just the opposite; while I have been a writer all my life, I have been a photographer just as long. My mother would make sure I had a camera and would take my film to be developed. Plus, she was my first model. I am glad that you are finding joy in it! 😀

    I’ve had my own camera for years and honestly never found a use for it until I started blogging. Owning a blog really brings you out of your comfort zone and you’d be surprised what you’ll discover that you love once you do so!

    Although, I have been taking a lot of pictures of my kids, learning photography is my next venture for this year. I realize that taking pics on my cell phone no longer satisfies me, and the plan is learning how to take a pic like a pro is my next goal.
