A LIFE UPDATE ... 

 

My loves! It has been a really long time. In all honesty, i've been stuck in a big black hole full of school & work, that I haven't had much time to create much content for this space. My poor blog looks quite blue and abandoned but I promise, I'm always thinking about it.  

So, how have you all been? I've really been quite great, thanks for asking. I thought I'd do a catch-up post to get you all updated on what's happening in my life at the moment, behind the screen. 


DOING ...

Life has definetly been keeping me super busy. In the times where I'm not almost falling asleep over a desk doing a million maths equations at school, you would most often find me working on my studio art portfolio, making what probably would be my 5th cup of tea for the day, and/or cooking in the kitchen while jamming out to my favourite tunes (more on the topic of music a bit later on). My new job has also been keeping me very occupied as I've had to wake up for work most Saturday mornings at ridiculously early hours, but hey, that's life for you. 

 

LEARNING ...

Everything about Film Photography ! I recently picked up a Holga 120 CFN, and was given my Grandpa's old film camera ( a Minolta SRT 101) to play around with. I've always been interested in film photography, but I have never gotten around to getting a camera, and buying the film. (Ok, I haven't bought film yet, that's for next week's adventure). My Hogla takes 120mm film, and the Minolta is 35mm which is great, as I will be able to experience shooting with a more simple "point and shoot" camera, and a more complex SLR camera. I'm planning to pick up some rolls of film before the Easter holidays start so I can have lots of time to have fun and experiment with this new medium. Overall, I'm very excited to be doing more photography these days !

 

LISTENING ...

Despite the fact that every day I’m scrolling through Spotify, be it on the way home after a long day, or through a speaker whilst cleaning up, I often forget to properly share it on here because it’s as regular and normal to me as brushing my hair or working at my desk.     

I often make playlists each month, so if your in need of some new tunes to listen to, i've got you covered. 

 

      

 

 

 

 

 

 

WATCHING ...

Loads and loads of Youtube! I've been really interested in Health & Nutrition as of now, and I've also been trying to limit my meat intake. I was having a little trouble with it all, up until I found Madeline Olivia on Youtube. Her videos are so helpful as she has made so many recipe videos on making vegetarian & vegan meals that are not only healthy, convenient and cheap, but also TASTY. I love how she also talks a lot about self care, mindfulness and healthy habits - something that I think we can all do more of and work on once and a while. 

I also can't help but mentioning my current love for Rupaul's Drag Race, Season 10. There's something about the drag life & drama on this show that always seems to keep me hooked ! 

 

WEARING ...

I recently was in desperate need for a new backpack for school, so after quite a few recommendations and quite a few hours researching online, I settled with a Fjallraven Kanken. It's been about 2 weeks since I first started using it, and I can happily say that it's probably one of the best purchaces I've ever made. The backpack is so practical for carrying my school books, as a daily bag and for traveling. 


So yes, there’s a little life update from yours truly. The first term for 2018 has finally ended, which means Easter holidays are just around the corner - thank god. I have a heap of exciting events & a short weekend trip planned so I can't wait to share more of what's going on in my crazy, whirlwind of a life.
