Hi everyone!

I’ve been slacking a lot lately… my last post was about two weeks ago. Sorry! I keep getting too comfortable and every afternoon is spent enjoying our ‘nearly finished’ living room. We still need to have the skirting boards fitted but hopefully after that it will just be a case of adding a few little personal touches. I can’t wait!

I’ve been looking into moving my blog outside wordpress.com. It’s a risky move as I would lose a lot of my wordpress readers but I would love to have this blog and my website under one single domain and have more flexibility with the design. I would love to hear your thoughts and experiences on this please!

52 Project – W1: Valentine’s Day

We went to Edinburgh a few years ago, we didn’t stay for very long because we had Penny with us. The few hours we spent there were not enough to be able to truly appreciate how beautiful it is.

Last weekend, we spent three days in Edinburgh and yet feel we did not see everything it has to offer. We spent most of Friday at the zoo, both hubby and I had been looking forward to seeing the pandas, in the evening we went for a meal at Kyloe Steak Restaurant & Grill. The meal was amazing, it had been a long time since we had such a great steak. We spent Saturday morning at Edinburgh Castle and walking around the Royal Mile in the afternoon. Most of Sunday we spent it at Holyroodhouse Palace.

The theme for my first week of the 52 Project was Valentine’s Day and as I mentioned on last Friday’s post, I found it difficult and did not capture what I was hoping to. The picture below was taken in the gardens of Holyroodhouse Palace. The picture is of a couple of friends walking side by side, valentine’s day is not only about love between couples but also about friendship.

Day 5 – Pisco Sour Night

Tonight we (Sarah, Meysi, Sam, Tim, Edel, James, Phil, Mark and me) went for a meal at Lima Restaurant. The food was delicious and the cocktails were to die for. It was a fantastic night! Love spending time with my friends 🙂

My 5th picture. Sorry for bad quality!

Day 3 – Having Fun!

As the days are drawing in closer and closer I am going to need to be more creative with the shots I take. Last year I went to a night photography lesson and until today I had not been able to put into practice what I learned.

One of the cool things we learned that night was playing with long exposures and a torch. Tonight with the help of my hubby I managed to get some cool shots and have lots of fun at the same time. Here are some of the shots I took! ( erm…couldn’t choose just one!)

Day 2 – Surprise Package

As I walked through the door this evening my husband announced that I had received a package. I wasn’t expecting anything so I couldn’t wait to see what was it was.

The package was from my family in Peru and it was a late birthday present. Here is a picture of what was inside…

Pretty Favours

Hi again! It has been a while. The lack of posts is because I went back to my country for a short holiday. I say short because the time I spend there is never enough. I had planned to do a post before we left but with last-minute preparations I couldn’t find the time.

While in Peru, we had a few specials occasions to celebrate. One of them was my mum’s birthday and the second one was our Catholic wedding. We got married here in the UK but only a few of my family members were able to come, hence the decision to also celebrate with all my family and friends over in Peru.

The weeks before leaving were quite hectic, we were trying to find the right favours to take to Peru. We wanted something very British. My mum did the same when we had the wedding here. She brought some small Peruvian crafts called ‘Mates Burilados’. They were beautifully handmade in my birth town of Huancayo. They were as far as I could tell a success with all the guests.

After spending many hours browsing the internet we finally found the perfect favours; small pots of jam and crackers. The pots of jam were decorated with Union Jacks and it celebrated Queen Elizabeth’s Jubilee and the small silver wedding crackers were the right addition. I came across Christmas crackers here in Britain and I love them! Here are the photos I took of the pretty favours 😉

Paris Falling Leaves

I am in the middle of editing some pictures I took in Paris back in 2009. I thought I may share a quick sneak peek of what is to come in a few days…most certainly to be completed by the weekend.
