See you in a couple of weeks!

It gives me great pleasure to say, see you in a couple of weeks! I’m off on holiday and will be back on the 8th of March.

Where am I going? Well, I’m heading to the States. First stop, Phoenix, Arizona. Then we’ll be heading to Portland, Oregon for a week. Then back to Arizona to do the Grand Canyon. Then we’ll have a short stop-over in London to see some family and friends before we head home.

I can’t wait. The bags are all packed, except a few little things I have to pop in the suitcase after I get ready.

While I’m away the blog will mostly be quiet – but I’ve got a few things scheduled in to keep the place ticking over.

I will most likely be Tweeting and Instagramming my way through the holiday. So feel free to stalk my holidays! Can’t wait to make some new holiday memories. Belgium feels like such a long time ago.

See you in March!

Between Lenses: Nostalgia

Between Lenses
This month I’m taking part in Between Lenses, a blog hop series from Of Trees and Hues and Tara Victoria. The theme this month is Nostalgia.

Between Lenses: Nostalgia

My family gifted me with a handmade photo album as a leaving gift when I moved out to Bahrain last May. Filled with all sorts of photos from my childhood until as recent as they could find.

Moving to Bahrain, I was limited with what I could bring with me. Limited is a bit of an understatement – it was literally a 30kg suitcase and whatever else I could blag in hand luggage.

Having lived in England my whole life and not moved around at all, a couple of houses, I accumulated a fair amount of stuff. Everything from little knick-knacks to photos and more. All of that got left behind. Continue reading Between Lenses: Nostalgia

The January Recap

Like my 365 project rundown for January showed, it’s been a quiet month. And I have really, really enjoyed it.

The great thing about having a nice, quiet and somewhat frugal month is getting to stay in and just consume film after film after film. Oh and a smattering of TV too.

January was a great month for films. Saw 11 films in January alone! Doing a lot of work to catch up on all the films I’ve missed from last year. And perhaps the year before that too. Check them out: Continue reading The January Recap

Nutshell Film Review: Big Hero 6

Big Hero 6
Probably one of the cutest super heroes around.

Big Hero 6’s heart is in the right place. It’s a sweet story with all the right boxes ticked for a Disney film. And it’s this box ticking that’s probably why I didn’t enjoy this as much as I could have.

As a kids film, Big Hero 6 is great. Bright colours, energetic and relatable characters, plenty of visual comedy. But as with a lot of Disney animated outings, Big Hero 6 feels very much like a kids film. And there’s nothing wrong with that. I just wanted that little bit more.

Project 365: January 2015

At the start of this year’s 365 project I was wondering whether consecutive 365’s was a wise idea. After all, I’m still doing the same routine I had for most of last year. It’s definitely going to be more of a challenge this year. But hey, I’ve got to try it. And I’ve learnt a lot since completing the last one. Continue reading Project 365: January 2015
