As we bid farewell to Summer, Autumn is finally here
Summer was very short lived in Britain, but seeing as Autumn is my favourite season I'm not to disappointed. I will miss late sunsets, walks on the beach and the familiar smell of freshly cut grass and the BBQ on a warm evening. But I welcome fall with open arms.
I can't wait for walks through fallen leaves, hot chocolate drinks and the warmth of the fire place. One of my favourite things about fall are the early evenings, when the air is mild but there is a slight chill, the stars are just coming out and the scent of burning wood is in the air. Its such a lovely atmosphere and my neighbourhood looks beautiful at this time of year.
My wish list for this fall is a new film camera, so I can capture every moment of this beautiful season. Comfy boots and chunky knits to wrap up and keep warm. Candles with spicy scents. Deep red lipstick to add a warm flush of colour. Hot chocoalte every day. Long walks in the New Forest. Chilly days. Fireworks. Lovingly homcooked meals. Evenings around the fire. Dreamcatchers surronding my room.
I love journals, I have had so many of them over the last few years. So when I discovered Bags of Love I jumped at the chance of getting a new journal. I love to write and draw so this little book is perfect for me.
Bags of Love is a lovely business that personalises gifts with photographs of your choice. I was pleasantly surprised at how big their range is, you're pretty much guaranteed to find that there is something for everyone. You can use any image you want wether its a picture of you and a friend, your pet or even a memorable photograph and Bags of Love will transfer it onto a product of your choice and it will be in your hands in just a few days.
I chose a Journal as I am constantly writing down thoughts, lyrics and sketching drawings. I keep this little book right on my bedside so it can also be used as a dream journal. I have a pretty good memory and my dreams are very vivid so when I wake up I like to write my dreams down so I don't end up forgetting them later in the day.
The best part is the front and back cover. It took quite a long time to decide what images I was going to use on the cover as I wanted it to be something that suited not only my personal style, but the book as well. I searched through my photographs on my blog and my computer but ended up choosing two of my favourite images from my Tumblr. The quality of the printing impressed me the most, as I chose two images from the internet I wary that the images may look pixelated, but they look just as good as they did online.
If you're looking for a personalised journal like this one, it retails at £27.50 for a book with any image of your choice.
Thank you Bags of Love
My current favourite drink, Peppermint Tea
My favourite song "Sigh No More" by Mumford & Sons has constantly been on repeat
I picked up this charming little notebook in America and it hasn't left my side since I brought it. I always keep it in bag so I can write down ideas when i'm on the go.
In other news, I cut my hair. I finally gave in and cut off 6 inches of dead ends and dip dyed my hair. I'm happy to say I don't regret it, Its definitely more sophisticated and its nice to have a bit of a change.
