Enter The Asylum

Enter the Asylum I never ever manage to make accurate record of my sojourn to the Asylum Steampunk Festival, because there is simply too much to see and do that I would be able to jot it all down for a post. If I had the time to go into it in all detail, I … Continue reading Enter The Asylum

Return to Normalcy

Well, hello, Monday. Hello, a weekday where I'm not stuck inside a textbook or anxiously scribbling away on my laptop. Books are strewn across the floor, papers are mismatched, my brain is all over the place. I feel like there are so many things I meant to do, but work and recovering from work has … Continue reading Return to Normalcy

101 Shades of Teal

As luck would have it, my bridesmaid dress plans are almost in as much tatters as I suspect the swatches/samples of dresses would be now. It's an arduous story that starts with one of Alexa's wild ideas. Madly out of my price-range, but what if my girls were dress in shades of blues and greens, … Continue reading 101 Shades of Teal

Photo of the Week: Mirrored

We went for a canal walk this weekend, whilst the last of the British summer favours us (though, not according to predicted weather for this week...). I don't normally opt for surface-sky reflections, but unfortunately I didn't take many photos - and I forgot until our walk back, so the day was beginning to fade … Continue reading Photo of the Week: Mirrored

Photo of the Week: Sunset

Looking back over my photos, it's actually been a pretty busy week, if only of just travelling. I think you must probably be sick of seeing summer sunset pictures by now, mid-August, and full of the heat of British weather. But a nice sunset is sometimes a rare thing, just peaking out from behind the … Continue reading Photo of the Week: Sunset

Photo of the Week: Summertime

The vibrant oranges and greens of Britain's attempt at spring-summer. I used a light adjustment here to combat the overgrowth covering in the forest as I took the photo, but the colours are otherwise unedited. This tree also caught my eye because of its decaying exterior (and interior, I suppose). Story inspiration, anyone? 😀 Feel free … Continue reading Photo of the Week: Summertime

Photo of the Week: Blazing Blue

Taken this afternoon no less, this photo of a peacock from a nature reserve in Kurkcudbright in Scotland pleases me. Although he'd lost a few feathers on his neck as the result of a fight, he still had a mighty fine plumage of bright blue feathers and a headdress and tail of the same typical peacock … Continue reading Photo of the Week: Blazing Blue

7 Quick Takes about Scotland, Mostly

Friday 7 Quick Takes is hosted by ThisAintTheLyceum. Check out this weekly bloghop there. I’m a little late with this post – and have tried to clear up possible confusion – as I had a migraine yesterday, which prevented me finishing and posting this. ~1~ I’ve been rather tired today (Friday), thanks to such a … Continue reading 7 Quick Takes about Scotland, Mostly

Photo of the Week: Beach

Yup, another Photo of the Week, but I haven't had the time to think about Ready, Set, Write! or other options for today's blog post. Hopefully, next week I can get back to some goals! But I'm on holiday holiday at the moment, away from the places I live, so my blogging reflects my lifestyle … Continue reading Photo of the Week: Beach
