Not So Lazy Day Off...

I'm so glad that my school decided to have a teacher training day today, because I really needed to catch up on a lot of sleep! I managed to get quite a lot of things done today, all of them enjoyable.

I sharpened my eyeliner pencil, like you do. I love looking at the sharpenings!

Trying on various dresses I've been given. This one is one of my favourites, and now I really want summer to hurry up! Don't get me wrong, I love snuggling down at home and watching movies all day, but the lack of light at this time of year drives me crazy, and it's really bad for photography.

I much prefer spring and summer, where there are long hours of sunlight and there are golden hours, which give amazing chances for photography.


Had a lunch of my favourite soup today (oxtail) and it warmed me up so much. All the time I spent in my room this morning chilled me to the core, and I needed something to thaw me out.

I got my advent calendar as well today. I'm not liking the exterior, but it's the chocolates on the inside that matter, so soon I'll be enjoying them.

But if I had to choose my favourite One Direction member, I'd choose Niall without a doubt! We have the same birthday, and he's exactly five years older than I am.

Photography. That's what my afternoon has been made of today. This is my beautiful camera, a Fujifilm Finepix S4400 bridge, which I got for my birthday. This isn't the best picture of it, because of the awful winter light.

Now for my very exciting part of the post! I love my photography, and I was taking a few shots today.

Succulent plants! I think they're so pretty, and this is the one in my window. See it here!

Levitation photography! Oh wow, I love it so much, and it's surprisingly easy! I used this tutorial, and it's so simple to follow. I used a free program called Gimp, and it's pretty similar to Photoshop.

A shot of my amazingly lovely dancers' feet.....don't look for too long if you don't like feet! Mine aren't very pretty.

This is probably my least favourite levitation photo: my face is pulling a weird face; I don't know what my hand is doing; and I look strangely flat. But it gets worse before it gets better, as they say. Let's hope my attempts get better soon :)

Thankyou for reading everyone, I really appreciate all of you reading my posts!
