001: I've been really unwell this week, which is a rare thing for me. Jack Frost found his way to me and gave me an awful cold, which was so bad I stayed in bed for two days straight. I'm feeling a little better now, but am definitely wrapping up warm for the coming week, especially as it's pretty much raining everyday.. starting today!

002: So, let me give you a Uni update! I really love it! - I've been given three projects this semester and have around three months to complete them. One of them is a self-portraiture project which is slightly scary, but I've thought of an idea! I went to the library this week and checked out the photography books etc. I found a really cool photography magazine called Hot Shoe, which I'm thinking of subscribing to. It's only £30 for 6 issues aswell!

003: I bought a new camera yesterday which has set me back a grand total of £844. I decided on the Nikon D5100 after being undecided between Nikon and Canon, however I felt Canon were too 'plastic-y and light' in my hands compared the solid-brick-like-ness of the Nikon. I'm absolutely in love with it though and can't wait to start using it on proper shoots. Just gotta get back into the swing of things and look for some more freelance work! - I also bought a wide angle f/1.8 portrait lens and a flash gun, aswell as insurance (couldn't risk dropping it and dying of heartbreak) which is why it was all a little more pricey... but so worth it!

  3. Oh gosh, what I would do for a Starbs frappucino right now! Love your outfit with the printed shorts and jumper, such a dream autumnal outfit! (: So glad you're enjoying Uni sweet, I'm so jealous of everyone writing about their experience with starting hahah. xx

  4. I believe it was a blue iPhone in your hand in the photos...really your outfit is looking very much stylish....thanks for your collection!!

  5. It is very real and obvious for those photography lovers that are straight into capturing a nature’s eye-catching scenes : the mountains, the forests, the actual wild or seas. Visiting these adventurous places absolutely requires a digital camera that can surpass the wild’s tough conditions.

  6. Thesis writing involves several processes which makes the entirety of the experience both exciting and challenging. From choosing a researchable topic that has not been done by other students and eventually narrowing it down to become a uniquely original work to soliciting the help of a research supervisor and in embarking on data collection and writing the paper, these are some of the tasks that almost all undergraduate and graduate students working on a thesis consider as stressful. In spite of the many challenges that students have to put up with, undeniably, the thesis project is an important project-based and challenge-based educational experience that helps in building character and in preparing students for their chosen career. One particular skill that is indispensable and which perhaps is unknowingly cultivated among students as they work on a thesis is the ability to work with a group of superiors.
