Current fave shows






Photo credit: Pinkpot
It's been nearly a year since I wrote a post about shows that I am currently watching , which is quite odd since I used to share this almost monthly when I 1st started my blog.... another thing I just realised its been almost two full years since I started the blog (July 2014) . I hope I go back to sharing all the things I enjoy watching on a regular basis.

Colony

This is one of my favourite shows at the moment.  It stars Josh Holloway (who most will know as Sawyer from the TV series Lost ) as Will Bowman and Sarah Wayne Callies (Sara on prison break ,lori on walking dead season 1 and 2) as Katie Bowman . Katie and will are a couple who stay under an organisation known as the colony Transitional Authority. They have 3 kids of which one of them is missing and most of the decisions they make on the show are based around getting him back.  In order to protect his family and get his son back Will starts working for the redheads who keep order in the different colonies . Part of his job is hunting down resistance members and unknowingly his wife is part of the resistance operative.

Photography gadgets to invest in : Beginners guide











 












 

Hey Everyone 

Today I thought I should share with you a few gadgets that I think you should invest in to improve your blog photography game or if you are a newbie photographer.


1. A Tripod
You should invest in a tripod,  it makes things so much easier when you are taking pictures or recording videos on your own and you have no one to help you with holding the camera.

Hey Everyone

I feel like I haven't posted in a while,  apart from being busy with life I have been experiencing the worst kind writers block. Anyway I am back and I thought I would share with you my tips on getting the internship/job you want.

1. confidence is key
Apart from being prepared,  confidence is always important when you go for interviews. 
The way you express or represent yourself can be a major factor in getting the job you want

Post inspo: A balancing peach


                                          Chapter 24 / How I improved my blog photography


Hey Everyone

March was a surprisingly good month.  Even though it had a lot of ups and downs , a lot of things ended up working out.
It started out with finally getting my long awaited photography equipment , sooo it was a fun month learning to use everything.

Most importantly it was my birthday month which was exciting and I got to the celebrate it the whole week (fun and tiring).On to other exciting news , the day before my birthday I got the job that I really wanted, that was a big load of my shoulders since I was stressing about turning 24 and having to go back to staying at home n etc.  (My last contract had just ended in January) .
