Christmas 2012

Wednesday, December 31, 2014
Remember I mentioned clearing my 2012 Europe pictures by 2014? (I say it like it's normal...)
WELL, ALMOST. I'm still left with my Norway pictures from the days after Christmas. 
But at least I'm not blogging Christmas 2012 in 2015...?

Back to topic. Christmas was spent at my half-sister's countryside home about 2 hours away from central Paris! Imagine my horror when I got there & realised... THEY HAVE NO WIFI THERE.

So... I paid $150 to Singtel for 5 days of data haha.

Here's beginning my last post of 2014 with a selfie:

With my half-nephew, Hugo!

What do people normally do in the countryside? Go for walks...

View of the house from the very end of the garden!

And some cows on the opposite side of the fence.

Some festive cuteness! But #adoptdontbuy #dontbuyapetjustbecauseitscute #bunniesarehardtocarefor

IMPOSTER #1 Spot the guinea pig hahaha

IMPOSTER #2 "Christmas Day. No one has noticed I'm not one of them"


I brought Santa hats! I have a ridiculous amount of festive-season-related novelty items.

L'aperitif! Champagne for the adults & sparkling juice for the kids.
I loveeee the crusty toasted baguettes with the various toppings. Major yummy.

Looking at my flip-out screen instead of the camera lens #basicallyeverypersontousemycamera

Random Hello Kitty lock I got from a turn-turn machine at the supermarket!

Began the last post of 2014 with a selfie, ending the last post of 2014 with a selfie.

May or may not do a "summary of 2014" thingamajig...
May or may not do resolutions... (I never do any because I know they'll fail LOL)

Have fun with yours! 
Till then,

Behind The Scenes

Friday, December 12, 2014
I don't usually take my pictures at any specific place. Most of the time I try to simply wear out whatever item I want to feature for an #ootd (lol) & snap it with... my iPhone.

On this particular day I headed out with my DSLR (Canon 700D). Which I don't really know how to use either. I mean I roughly know ISO & exposure, but frankly most of the time I just use Auto mode...

Anyway, went to a (what I thought was) deserted & quiet stretch of road near my home, although I generally hate large amounts of greenery in my pictures. Look at the damned things below. So bloody much... green. And yellow. Idk! I don't like warm/pastel tones either, but I'd pick that over cold tones.



So this is just a random update because I was tired of posts needing hours & hours of editing.

Life has been alright so far, though I've never liked the festive season that much.
I know, can you say Grinch?

But really, I feel the festivities have become so commercialised. May also stem from the fact that I hate giving & receiving gifts! Thus, the worst season ever for such a person haha.
I hate stressing over what to pick, will they like it, how will they react...

Me: "Shit it's pouring so I should wear slippers but I'm wearing jeans & then I'd be committing that deadly jeans + slippers sin" -> #firstworldproblems

Also, 2015 horoscope predictions are out already so I've spent my time reading mine & selectively remembering positive traits. Oh wait, is that one of my negative traits then? #inception #leo
