One of the first blogs that I started following. Quotes drawn in a Moleskine, pretty straightforward really but I love them. 

Here are some of my favourite posts, the blog is created by Lee Crutchley and can be found here

I've always wanted to do something like this myself but never got round to it. I literally have pages and pages of quotes that I would love to visualise. 

I need to get my arse into gear.

Cardiff After Dark

After helping out on a photography course as part of my job, my eyes have really been opened to photography and how light and persepectives can really make the ugly beautiful, the boring intriguing and the dull vibrant. 

Whilst mooching around on the internet I came across "Cardiff After Dark" by photographer Maciej Dakowicz. A style and view of photography really reminded me of Martin Parr, whose work I had also been introduced to on the course that I helped out on. The title pretty much says it all, but the photography is amazing. It's a mixture of voyeurism, intrigue and the cringeworthy. And sums the aftermath of a night fuelled with drink mixed with people who don't know when to stop and have no shame after midnight.

Hello Autumn

I am SO ready for Autumn. Summer has been a bit of a let down weather wise, I think I remember there being maybe one scorcher of a weekend. And that was it. The rest has been changeable, sunny yet rainy, windy, overcast and mainly cloudy and clammy weather. So now I am ready. Ready for it to be chilly enough to wear a chunky knit, funky boots, hats, scarves you name it. I love Autumn. The crisp clear mornings, cosying up with a film on a rainy windy Sunday afternoon, all the lovely colours of the trees,  conkers, and that back to school feeling although that hasn't happened for QUITE a while. Happy Autumn everyone!
