Streets of London.

London is one of my absolute favourite places in the world no matter how busy it is the business of the streets will never take away the beautiful buildings and surroundings. Yesterday I went on a little adventure around London, I had some places in mind that I wanted to go to but I also just went with the flow. As I'm getting more and more confident with getting the tubes on my own I feel like London trips are getting easier for me and that I can get around quite easily on my own now without relying on someone else's good geography.

I firstly took a little look round Warwick Avenue which was quite a pretty place with a perfect view of the river and boats that you can look across just minutes away from the tube station.

I also looked around Picadilly circus and came across China town which I've never actually been too before so it was nice to have an explore around there. Found a lovely little sweet/snack shop which sells so many types of different flavoured Pockey which are delicious!

My friend also lives in London so we had a lovely catch up and adventured around Notting Hill which is one of the cutest and most unique places I have visited. It's like London's version of Brighton. It was my first time visiting there and I'm so excited to go back again especially when it's a bit warmer in the summer.

Definitely looking forward to spending more time in London when the weather is a bit warmer, sunny London is my favourite and everything looks just that little bit better in the sunshine, y'know what I mean?

How I edit my photo's.

Hey all!
One of the main questions I get asked especially on instagram is 'how do you edit your photo's?' so I thought it would be better to explain in a blog post for anyone who is interested.
You don't always have to use an expensive program to edit, I know many people use 'Photo shop' or 'lightroom' which I'm starting to look into but that's because I've been involved with photography for a long time and wanted to get more experience into editing. But if your a beginner or somebody looking for the easier options I really recommend 'Picassa' which you can download on your laptop for free which has been something I've used ever since I started editing photo's.
I then also use two apps on my phone called Deluxe FX or Aferlight which are both great. With Afterlight you may have to pay a bit extra to get some more effects but you hardly have to pay anything and it's always worth getting the extra good edits. But they are both pretty similar with just the odd few different touches to them. Definitely my favourite photo editing apps.

Before I edit on any program I use a couple of settings on my DSLR. I currently have a Canon 700D and use a 60mm Macro lens which I absolutely love. Firstly I always set it onto 'manual' settings because I love the option of you choosing your own settings for the photo instead of having it set automatically. I then also set it to F.2 and set the colour tone to a bit more of a purple/blue shade and then of course I'll set the lighting settings depending on what the light is like. That's pretty much the basics of how I edit my photo's. Let me know if you have any questions, I'll be happy to answer them.

Monday Blues.

Happy Monday!
I'm sitting here all cosed up (is that even a word?) in my dressing gown currently listening to 'History' by one direction, ooh yeah! With the wind quite literally howling away in the background. It has been extremely windy here lately and the sound of it is so powerful I'm actually a little afraid that the giant tree infront of the house and my bed room window is going to come crashing down (let's hope not),
Turning 23 has come and gone and I've almost had a week of already being 23. I feel like since I turned 23 it has just sort of thrown 'life' in my face.  I feel like time is just going way too fast and I'm not doing anything that I actually want to be doing. I think this year is a year where I have to make some changes, I want to be happy with my life and myself and I can't continue to be as negative as I have been otherwise honestly I won't get anywhere.
I've started writing a diary again because I recently found my old diaries from when I was about 10-16 and I'm so glad I had written about my life back then, I absolutely love going through and reading about what I did or felt that day and I love laughing at some of the cringy things I had written. And my mind is always so full and it's good to keep a document of what your feeling or what you have been doing and it's a good way to release a bit of stress or anxiety.
Do you keep a diary?
Hope you have a good week!
