A Film Photography and Fashion Blog

Week in Review & Liebster Award

Happy Sunday! Not a whole lot going on this week, to be honest - I did a bit of back to school shopping (and filmed a haul video on what I got - stay tuned for that!) and did some last-minute registering for courses. I took over Jessica's Blog 'love love love' for a day, but aside from that its just been work as usual, and lots of errands. I can't believe how fast this summer is going by! It's two weeks until classes start and I feel like summer has just begun. I am actually looking forward to going back though. I was nominated for the Liebster award this week, so the second half of this post will be about that!

Still going with the august break challenge - only one more week to go! Here are the images from this weeks prompts.

I was nominated for the Liebster award by Ashley from Unicorn Meat! Thanks so much Ashley :) Here are the ten questions she asked. Scroll down to see my nominess and the ten questions I'll be asking!


What's your favorite color? This is a hard one because I actually love all colours (and shades!) but I wear & am drawn to blue the most. Especially blue with some green in it.

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be? Australia & New Zealand are number one on my places-to-see list, but Greece, Italy, the UK, and many others follow close behind. I love to travel, and I plan to see them all!

What's your most beloved item that you could never live without? I don't really have an item that I couldnt live without - My Canon T50 film Camera probably comes close - but I'd have a hard time living without my cat. She's not an item, though, haha.

If you could own any animal in the world and have the means to take care of it, what would it be? Probably a fox or a deer. I love woodland animals and I've grown up around them and gotten close enough to almost touch them many times, and I think if I could I'd choose one as a pet. I'd also love to have a pig again, but that day will come when I move back to the country.

What/who is you style inspiration? Blake Lively & Rachel Bilson are my favorite celebrities for style inspiration, but Pinterest is probably the biggest source. Kendi from Kendi Everyday Is my favorite fashion blogger for inspiration as well.

Do you have a signature perfume? I have a couple different perfumes that I own, but its probably a tie between Nina by Nina Ricci and Euphoria by Calvin Klein. I like sweet & spicy scents best.

What are you most passionate about? I'm incredibly passionate about film photography as far as hobbie go. Fair treatment of animals is an issue I'm passionate about though, and I work really hard not to purchase products that test on animals. I'm not perfect at it, but I do care about it deeply. I'm also a big advocate of adopting from shelters and treating pets like family.

What's your favorite food, and can you make it yourself? Sushi is my favorite food. Salmon Sashimi is my absolute favorite, if you want to get very specific. I can make sushi myself, but it tastes better from the restaurant ;)

What's your guilty pleasure? Reading young fiction novels. My reading ability is well over them and sometimes the story line is stupid and childish, but I just can't put them down once I pick them up!

Favorite cartoon character of all time? (Or fictional character).Harry Potter. Hands down, no competition. I actually relate best to Hermione Granger, but any character is the series will do.

Favorite beauty brand? I use a ton of different brands, I don't stick to just one. I do really love NYX & Revlon though (neither of which test on animals. Yay!).

  2. Thanks so much for nominating me Jessica. If you don't mind, I'll answer the questions here instead of in a post.

    1.Why did you start your blog, and when?

    I started a long time ago...I would say...nearly 6 years ago? But I didn't start posting anything significant until 2008 and then I was doing like...1 post a month. Over the years, I've been refining my blogging style and my photography skills. Last year in November I finally got a DSLR so I have been really trying to be good about photoing and posting regularly. I started my blog mainly because I wanted somewhere to record my thoughts and the things I did. Since my beginning, I've evolved my blog to a place where I can tell a story through pictures and words. I like using words to explain the pictures a bit more - and usually the stories I tell are fiction based on real life.

    2.Where in the world would you most like to live?

    I'm torn on this one hahahha. I would say Paris or London. I have never visited Europe and everything about it just seems so romantic. I couldn't choose. I'll take anywhere in Europe xD.

    3.Who is your favorite band/singer?

    My music tastes change a lot. Right now, I am listening to Muse and planning photoshoots that will never happen *grossobbing*.

    4.Why did you get into photography?

    I think cause I had a camera and was playing around with it and it seemed fun.

    5.Are you doing what you thought you would when you were younger? if not, would you still want to be?

    Up until middle school, I wanted to be an artist. Since then, I've wanted to be a doctor. I am currently in medical school so I guess I am doing what I wanted to? Hhahah.

    6.Do you sleep with socks on?

    Only in the winter when it is cold. I think I probably will cause I am in Chicago and it is cold.

    7.What would be your dream pet, regardless of whether or not it is actually feasable?

    Argh this is so hard to decide. I would probably really love a horse.

    8.What is your favorite subject to photograph?

    I love photographing people, I am just really bad at it hahaha. Other than that...still life/architecture. It's easier when the things don't move hahaha.

    9.Favorite book/book series?

    Favorite book (currently): The Faults In Our Stars; Favorite series: Harry Potter

    10.What is you Guilty pleasure?

    Eating...in general hahahaa. Or...drinking tea at midnight. Or...cheap $1.33 coffee at 7/11. Probably that last one hahahhaa.

    1. that's perfectly fine! Thanks for answering them :)
      You win 100+ bonus points for saying Harry potter is your fav series haha. I'll probably read 'the faults in our stars' just because you clearly have good taste in books :P
