Today I finally had my first Lomography fisheye camera roll developed. Sadly, some hadn't turned out that well as when I thought I'd wound back the film I hadn't, opened the back and runied them :( Some did turn out ok, just think next time I need more light!

Today we went for a walk with the dogs in Delamere Forest to make the most of the nice weather. I decided to play with the randomise setting on Hipstamatic and take some nice nature photos. Here are some of my favourites.

Today we went out to dinner then I saw my friend for a milkshake. All in all a good day after a super busy week. This is my outfit from today. It consists of a black and white dress from Republic with black leggings and a feather belt from Zara. I also wore an Alice in Wonderland necklace featuring a pocket watch and the white rabbit with a black and silver skull bracelet.

Today Sport Relief is on the tv. I'm too lazy to run a mile, so I donated £10 instead. Here's hoping it helps!


Song Of The Day: Snow Patrol - Run
Reason: Really good song, quite like Snow Patrol for their highly emotional songs when I'm in the right mood

Today I am even more knackered than yesterday! So I will post a better blog entry about Vintage Kino over the weekend. Tonight I'm just going to curl up in bed with a dvd from Lovefilm that I've had for far too long. I may be inspired to start writing some film reviews again too!

Today was a busy day. Half a day at work, followed by a meeting in Preston and then Vintage Kino. I'll keep this post short for now as I'm tired but will post more about Kino tomorrow!!

Song Of The Day: The flicker of a projecter reel.
Reason: Not strictly a song, more a sound, but it's nice to hear the good old fashioned sound of the film reel being spun round.

Today has been a long, tiring day. Sometimes it's nice to just get home and chill out.


Song Of The Day: Nine Inch Nails - The Fragile
Reason: Uber ultra super loving NIN more than usual at the moment

Today was Mothers Day. We had a meal at my Mum's house with all the family and I brought a homemade coffee cake. We also had a variety of other deserts which meant I only ate a bit of main meal so I could save plenty of room for goodies, especially since they're pretty much banned from my house.

Cake Selection:

Song Of The Day: Nine Inch Nails - The Perfect Drug

Reason: Love the song and it's got a pretty cool video accompanying it too.

Today me and the boy went to Manchester to put up some posters for Vintage Kino @ The Three Minute Theatre. We just walked round the shops asking to put them on the walls so it was simple enough. I'm going to try and make the event on Wednesday as it seems right up my street! It was nice walking around so early whilst it was still relatively quiet and a nice day. We also stopped at Pinkie's  for a lovely milkshake!

Today was shedding day for Johnny the gecko. Unfortunately he'd managed to get a bit stuck over his head, meaning that he couldn't see so well!

Today my good friend came round so that we could do some baking. We decided to make fudge for the first time and also giant cookies. The vanilla fudge turned out well, but the chocolate version not so much. The cookies were awesome but one crumbled when we took it off the tray sadly.

Song Of The Day: The Pretty Reckless - Medicine
Reason: If I was a teenage girl, I'd want to be Taylor Momsen

Citi Petts - Love In A Riot

In 2011 we filmed a music video for Liverpool based band Citi Petts. It was to accompany their first single 'Love In A Riot' which is now due to be released on 26th March! I really enjoyed making the video at Crash Studios in Liverpool and think it's turned out really well, I'm also glad that the band like it! I really hope they do well and that people pick up on their music, after hearing 'Love In A Riot' about a million times in a row on the shoot date I can honestly say I didn't get sick of hearing it and I felt like dancing every time. So please support Citi Petts and check out the video!

Today is going to be a long week. I appear to be stuck in a horrible, moping about sort of mood. I expect this is because it's so quiet in work compared to last week and the mundane tone of every day life has strongly kicked back in. However, I made spaghetti bolognese from scratch, not a major achievement but hey, gotta find the positives somewhere!

Apple For Teacher:
Apple For Teacher

Song Of The Day: Tinie Tempah - Pass Out
Reason: Easily some of the best lyrics coming from 'new' music at the moment.

Today we opened the apple juice we'd got from the Grappenhall Heys walled garden. My grandad is the chairman so we go regularly to support him, but also because their cakes are really nice and super cheap! (two pieces of cake and two cans of coke for £3?!) They grow their own fruit and veg and sell it at the weekends, so we bought some of their own homemade apple juice. It's soooo nice, a lot more appley than supermarket bought juice. Yummy.

Song Of The Day: Lesley Roy - Crushed
Reason: So soulful and heartfelt

We had visitors for tea so got to use the string of birdcage lights that I got from work during mega week. They look really cute and create some interesting shadows! Plus I'm obsessed with birdcages! They're awesome.


Apartment - 10th March 2012 (30)

Song Of The Day: Tinie Tempah & Ellie Goulding - Wonderman
Reason: Really good song, not hearded it in ages.

Today I finally got round to photographing the flat. It's nice to be able to show people who haven't come round yet. I went shopping in Altrincham today. I love driving through Altrincham as some of the houses are amazing, we drove past one which was abandoned and being solded for renovation which I would have love to have gone looking around in! Whilst in Altrincham, I got the most awesome clock - it's 'melted'! Very Alice In Wonderland, which is sending me on the hunt for more Alice inspired homewares. I've seen some nice cushions which I think will be next on the list!

Melt Into Wonderland:

Song Of The Day: Lana Del Rey - Blue Jeans

Today's PED is a bit on the experimental side. I basically, just completely by accident, took a photo of what has turned out as dark circles, but I thought it looked cool enough to share. I had been taking photos of a safety pin but must have clicked again by mistake.

Song Of The Day: David Guetta & Snoop Dog - Sweat

Today's PED is of my Union Jack dog doorstop, he's not heavy enough to hold open our doors, which are fire doors, but he is still rather cute! He matches our Union Jack/retro theme perfectly.

Song Of The Day: Fiona Apple - Criminal
Reason: I love Fiona Apple and apparently she's due to release some new material this year, so exciting!

I've spent this evening doing research into companies that might want to sponsor the feature films I'm working on and my day time hours were spent on the first day on mega week, so my poor brain is frazzled. I'm having a nice relaxing end to my evening with some crumpets and Geordie Shore. Yes, Geordie Shore is amazing, unlike scripted reality programmes which in my opinion are just poor soaps with terrible actors!


Song Of The Day: Lesley Roy - Thinking Out Loud
Reason: Beautiful song, really wish she would release another album

Today hasn't been very exciting, as with most weekdays. I think I'm having far too many not-exciting-enough days at the moment. So today's PED is of a canvas of a parrot. I bet parrots always have exciting days...


Song Of The Day: The Donnas - Too Bad About Your Girl
Reason: Fun song, fun band

Today we went to Willow Pool Garden Center, possibly one of my favourite local afternoons out. Willow Pool is full of random things such as broken Victorian style prams, old machinery and my personal favourite a giant My Little Pony from Blackpool illuminations (see one of my older posts for a pic of this!) Today it was rather empty of stuff which was a bit disappointing. But we did have some food from their tea rooms which was really nice. Huge portions too! It was also my Gran and Grandad's 50th wedding anniversary, so we all had a meal at my Mum's house.

Today after work I had two visitors! My friends came over for takeaway, from our other friend's families Chinese takeaway, and to hang out. We played along with Take Me Out, ate junk and just had a laugh in general. Was a nice night and better than spending it on my own just monging about! I am also baking another lemon drizzle crunch cake for a meal at my Mum's tomorrow.


Song Of The Day: Lana Del Rey - Blue Jeans
Reason: Just love her voice, the lyrics and the retro feel to her music.

Today I made a lemon drizzle crunch cake. It's a basic lemon sponge with a sugary paste on top, yummy!

Today has been a rubbish day really. So I have toast to make it better.


Song Of The Day: Skrillex - The Sadness Will Never End (Bring Me The Horizon Remix)
Reason: Not a fan of BMTH as I just don't really know any of their stuff and it's not my first choice of style anymore, but love this!
