Afternoon lovely’s! Here’s a simple blog post about my instagram highlights in 2016 which are also some of my favourite photos.
I currently have just over 1000 followers on my account and received 3,373 likes over 59 posts within 2016. Ideally I prefer to keep to a theme but it doesn’t come naturally – If I didn’t plan out my photographs it would all be a colourful mess!Read More »
Last weekend my boyfriends friend from Amsterdam came to visit, while she was down we showed her round all of London and the typical landmarks which it’s famous for! She really wanted to go to the Zoo so after meeting up with a few of her UK friends we all headed off to the ZSL London Zoo near Regents park. I have been there quite a few times over the years but to be quite honest, who doesn’t love the zoo and all the cute animals *.*
*Quick Tip* If you plan on going with a friend, you can buy a discount voucher which allows you to buy one ticket and get another free! Simply check out this site – daysoutguide.co.uk. It has all of the London attractions you can go see at a discounted rate if you travel via the National Rail!
We arrived at the Zoo and the first area we explored was the Reptiles enclosure, as my boyfriend is currently obsessed with bugs… Boys what can you do aye? I took a bunch of photographs while I was there to get some more Manual camera practice in, as it’s very easy to keep using the Auto mode and still capture a great shot. Using my trusty old Canon 6OOD with a 50mm lens F1.8, one day I will own a F1.4 I simply need that bokeh… ❤
These lil’ froggies were so cute and funny! Some of them were in water tanks and the lil’ guy just kept swimming all the way up to the top and then dived all the way back down, at one point he dived down so quickly I think he knocked him self out when he hit the glass at the bottom, gosh it was a funny sight to see!Read More »
For a long time I have had these two very boring old blue bins in my room (yes there’s a smiley face…Idek) and I finally decided to clean them up and decorate them! I wanted to spray paint them using an ombre effect with gold and silver shades, if you feel like there’s something in your room you’ve been wanting to up-cycle or re-decorate for a while now here’s how you can, using spray paints!
Spray Paint: Gold & Silver
*Quick Tip* I wouldn’t advise you to spray paint in doors as the paint can go everywhere and will get on everything along with the spray fumes it’s best to be outside!
If you are someone who loves art and making things in general then grab a pencil or brush and go wild!
I wanted to share a few of the recent pieces I have done:
Inspired by my favourite instragramer, @Aliencreature. I wanted to create a watercolour piece using her as a base model. I’ve always loved the combination of the commonly used 3 colours blue, pink & purple so I decided they would be the theme for the image and used the 3 shades to create depth and tone.Read More »
