New Year, New Goals

Here’s to 2018, an unforgettable year. The year I started my blog, began entering competitions and gained new skills. I’m ready for 2019, I do hope it’s as exciting and opens new doors for me. I tiptoed into the New Year in my pyjamas and headed straight to bed. The entertainment was in my mind…

Merry-full Art

The advent calendar is completely empty, Santa’s been and gone, the gifts are all un-boxed, feasters are going for seconds and chillers are binging on Netflix with a cup of white hot chocolate. feeling a little festive this season, I gave the silhouette mandala’s some sparkle, by turning them into baubles. Each bauble is filled…

The Walking Dead – What Comes After

The prominent landmark is located in a prime photography hotspot, Southbank, a stone’s throw walk away from London Bridge station. The spacious gallery is brimming with inspiration, from its grey toned architecture to…

But First Coffee

How do you like your coffee? I’m not much of a coffee fan. My soup-bowl-sized mugs are always brimming with coffees sweeter counterpart hot chocolate.
