Photos Of The Great Outdoors and The 30 Days Water Challenge

Big news! I am starting the 30 days water challenge tomorrow. I have always been told off for drinking 3-4 glasses of water a day (tops!) so it is high time I started doing something about it. I know this is not normal, but I really don’t feel like drinking more than that. The “How drinking 3 litres of water a day took 10 years off my face” article was the last drop in the glass (how poetic) and gave me the final push. I have been warned by relatives, boyfriend, work colleagues and my doctor about this and I have been trying, but never managed to take in more than 1.5 litres, so I am really curious if I can manage 3 litres… Sounds like plenty… But if only half of the achievements listed in the article prove to be true it’s all worth it.

Let’s see! I’ll report about how I managed – this time next week 😉

I also wanted to share a few photos I took over the weekend, while learning my camera’s settings. Any feedback is more than welcome and much appreciated. I hope you like them. xoxo


Learning New Things

It’s been a year since I bought my Canon 1000D. Funny enough, I hardly used it… ever. Mostly for the reason that I had (ok, have) no clue how to use it properly.

Having a professional camera and using it on auto settings always grossed me out. Pathetic… I spent all that money to push a button…? Noooo, that wasn’t something I am into.

So, I had to find the time (and quit the excuses) to actually learn how my camera works. Aperture? ISO?

Since I don’t have any money to spare and spend on pricy courses I begun my search online. I found a great tutorial on Lifehacker and started playing with certain settings…for the last two days.

I have been learning Illustrator (and created my new logo, ha!) and Photoshop for a little while, so I might get everything together to do some creative work I always wanted to and had been passionate about.

Here is the first set of my photos, I hope you like them. Any feedback is much appreciated.
