The dame was fantastic!
I've been doing some cool stuff lately so here I go rambling..
Last weekend I went to the Chipping Norton panto. We go to the panto every year with my cousins and it's a bit of a family tradition! This year it was Jack and the Giant which was an adaptation of the classic story Jack and the Beanstalk.

I mean look at those butterflies!

I also went to see the the new Hunger Games movie. I thought the film was better than the first however I prefer the first book. I love Effie's extravagant style and the whole look of the capitol.

I've also been enjoying my geography lessons recently (which I don't normally!). We're doing a project about city design and we're designing a sustainable Japanese island. I'm really interested in design so this project is great!

I've been trying to spend less time on tumblr and more time reading. Here's what I've been reading lately:

I have had a subscription to Elle Decor for the past two years and it was time for renewal so I thought I would switch over to Elle since I've been getting more interested in fashion and I saw this deal (which is now over). I really love flipping through the glossy pages and looking at all the high fashion looks. Subscribe here.

Barbie: Her Life and Times by Billyboy
This was a gift from someone a few years ago and I "rediscovered" it in our library a couple of weeks ago. It covers all of Barbie's fashion trends since she launched in 1959. Buy it here.

Rookie Yearbook Two by Tavi Gevinson
Just as amazing as the first, this yearbook is filled with articles, interviews, collages, photo editorials, and illustrations all beautifully printed. Buy it here.

More Than This by Patrick Ness
This thought-provoking book is about what happens after death. I love the front cover! It tells the story of Seth and where he wakes up after death. Hugely recommend! Buy it here.

Slinkachu books

I don't know if this counts are reading of looking but either way these are fantastic books. The books are collections of photos from
Slinkachu - a street artist who abandons little people on the street (it's not as bad as it sounds!). I love how you see the little people close up and they don't seem so small but then you see them in the outside world and they seem tiny. Check it out here and buy the books here.

Also, have you heard the Arctic Monkey's new album? I love it:) 



P.S. Check out  this tumblr... it's awesome!!

Hello! Recently I have been getting a lot more interested in photography and I thought I'd tell you about the cameras I use...

iphone 4s

This is actually my mum's phone but I borrow it for the camera quite a lot because my phone's camera isn't very good:/ Photos come out very clear and it is incredibly light. I often take pictures of my non-digital photos when I can't be bothered to scan them. Highly recommend!!

Pentax p30t

This camera used to be my mum's but she doesn't use it any more. I really love the zoom on this camera as it shows up as clear as it would if you were up close. The only annoying thing about using a non-digital camera is that it is quite expensive once you've paid for film and the pictures to be developed however I do love looking through pictures when they've been developed and having no idea how they'll look. I used this camera a lot over the summer:)

Asahi Pentax K1000
My Grandad recently gave me this camera so I haven't actually used it yet. It uses film and has a beautiful leather case that I'm tempted to use as a bag! I've read some reviews of it online that suggest that is is quite good.

From above

Well done if you read this far! Sorry if this post was a bit boring.

Happy Sunday!! I finally got round to getting my film developed from the summer and I thought I'd share some of my faves.

Most of these were taken whilst I was staying at my grandparent's bungalow in Norfolk. The bungalow was literally one minute away from the beach. It was surprisingly good weather and there were some stunning views.

Sorry this post has been so image heavy :/ I've been trying to blog more lately somewhat unsuccessfully... oh well.

Hey! This post is a bit late but here are some snaps from summer. I had a really great summer. I went to Turkey for a couple of weeks which was lovely and sooo hot!

The pool

We walked across a bay where there was a myth that two lovers who were banned from seeing each other had lived on opposite sides of the bay and each night the they would thow a handful of sand so they could walk across.

I got a henna

This reminds me of the movie The Impossible

There were so many lovely cars

I did a sailing course when I came back to England which was fun:) I also spent a week at my Grandma and Grandpa's bungalow. It is in Norfolk near the sea and it was built in the 70's and is so vintage-y! I don't have any pictures yet because I used film and am waiting for it to be developed. In the last week I stayed at my Gran and Grandad's up north which was great.
