Falling through high places

Yesterday was one of the most fun-filled Saturdays there ever was. I went to Xscape near Leeds with two of my friends for some jolly snow time where we joined a load of small children on the slopes for a spot of sledging. We decided it was definitely an activity better suited to us 22 year olds than the kids though because we had a quite significant weight advantage helping us along (I knew indulging over Christmas would come in handy sometime!) and unlike most of the people around us we managed not to cry every time we fell off our sledges! Then we spent the rest of the afternoon eating burgers, nachos, doughnuts and lemon drizzle cake. It appears that sledging makes you work up quite an appetite (any excuse). I also took a trip to Urban Outfitters, again on a quest for some cheap jewellery, and somehow this time came home with this new camera. I'm a ridiculous human being.



Then to celebrate the end of the first Saturday of 2013 (here's hoping all Saturdays to follow are equally brilliant!) we cracked open the rum and headed out for the night. The perfect opportunity to give my new dress its first outing. It has a panther on it don'tcha know.




dress: Topshop, socks: Topshop, shoes: New Look

  3. Sounds like a fun day! I'm a bit of a wuss though, so I probably would have joined the kids with the crying haha.
    I used to have a fisheye - I sold it a while ago as my lomography camera collection was getting a little ridiculous and I needed a bit of moneys - it is a great little camera though, lots of fun! xx

    1. Haha I'm sure you couldn't be as bad as the kids were ;). I'd love to have so many of the different lomography cameras- they're all so lovely! I'm going to try and keep myself just with this one though, can't wait to see the results!

    1. I think there are quite a few different apps you can use for a fisheye effect, the pictures from the cameras look fab so I'm sure the apps would be good too! x
