It’s been nearly two weeks since I got back from the south of France. Going back through these old Instagram photos gave me a much-needed dose of nostalgia. We left rainy cold Zurich on a Saturday morning and came back a week later… a week wasn’t enough time though. I’m already ready to go back and explore the area more. We visited Nice, Cannes and St Paul – all a short drive from the flat we stayed at in Vence. I ate so much good food – loads of cake and ice cream, plenty of salmon and steak tartare, plus lots of rose to wash it all down. Each evening was spent sitting on the balcony overlooking the water and rolling hills. I’ve made a mental note to go back in October, autumn can’t come soon enough*.
* Just joking. Summer is my favourite season and I wouldn’t wish it away for anything.
Are you guys on Vine yet?
I’ve had it for a week and I’m totally addicted. It’s like Twitter but with video. You can string together little snippets of video and loop them together into a GIF like creation. It’s so fun and, now that I have it, Instagram feels so passé. I’ve made dorky Vine videos of me looking at myself in the mirror, getting dressed, and eating pizza. I’m really looking forward to using it during fashion week to capture all the action and street style. If you aren’t on it already I’d urge you to hop to it immediately. You can find me under ‘stylecrusader.’ If you’re on it already please leave me your username in the comments. I’m looking for new people to follow.
p.s. this weekend I’m switching over my blog to a new layout so apologies in advance if it’s a bit wonky during the change over.
Lying in my bed on the eve of 2013, I’m scrolling through a years worth of blog posts. Nostalgia is setting in. Pass the tissues. Highlights definitely include fashion week and twirling in the teacups at EuroDisney with Shini. A trip to Jamaica also ranks high on the best moments from the year. My favourite post I did this past year has got to be ‘A letter to my fellow bloggers’, wherein I write a letter addressing the misconceptions and lies that surround being a blogger. I loved reading everyone’s comments and thoughts in response to the post. Thanks so much for sticking with me through 2012. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the year ahead.
Happy New Year. Here’s to it being a great one. *clinks glass*
I spent three weeks in the US recently. It was awesome. I ate a lot of food and got to spend lots of quality time with my family who I’ve sorely missed this past year. My parents bought a new house which we played in and I became best friends with their new miniature dog named Minnie. It was board games every night and early mornings, thanks to my sister’s four kids and their early starts. I already can’t wait for the summer when we get to go back again.
p.s. wherever you are I hope you’re still feeling the holiday cheer.
After spending three great weeks in the US I’ve just arrived to Sweden for Christmas. I spent the day wandering around Uppsala, shivering in the cold. It’s minus 5 here and apparently it’s ‘not that bad’. While my hosts assure me that some years it’s really cold (minus 25), I’ll be spending the next two weeks in so many layers that I can hardly move.
I’ve been having loads of fun lately playing with a new little toy I got for my iPhone. It’s an attachment that does fisheye and wide angle shots. I was afraid the quality would be rubbish but it actually works really well. It’s perfect for capturing colder than cold environments.
I hope wherever you are your getting into the Christmas feeling! xx
