Snaps & Songs


This week I've been posting quite often & as I was short for ideas I thought I'd do a cute little 'week in snaps' post as I've really been making the most of the lovely weather! I've always loved photography & getting the camera out from time to time, but sadly due to exams, horrible weather (which often means terrible lighting) & procrastination (or laziness as it's otherwise known) I just haven't got round to taking many photos. So hopefully by doing a little post like this I can learn to get out & use my camera more than I have been!


Wearing Barry M Nail Paint in Berry Ice cream featured in this post // Homegrown Organic Strawberries picked & almost eaten with my very own 'green fingers' // An old foresty snap I found whilst looking through my camera

Another oldy I found of some abandoned boats (n'aww) // A real gem of a snap - my neighbour's cat lounging in the sun (laaaz-y) // A lipstick I've been loving at the mo' featured in this post

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

That's 'Snaps' covered, now on to Songs! So basically, I thought I may as well add a little music into the mix and include songs I've been listening to this week. I'm constantly listening to music - sometimes I get a little 'set in my ways' & don't explore other genres or artists' music so, hopefully this post can encourage me to do that!

Bastille - Overjoyed // Arctic Monkeys - Do I Wanna Know? // The Vaccines - Melody Calling
The 1975 - Chocolate // Alt-J - Fitzpleasure

So, that's today's post! If you would like me to do more of these kinda posts, give me a little comment below & I'll see what I can do!

Do you like any of the songs or artists I've mentioned?

  1. Just stumbled across your blog - I absolutely adore the style of it all, it's so beautiful! I love all the songs you've listed - I love having Spotify on in the background and playing whatever it recommends for me, and usually it's these kind of songs! ^.^
