weekend wanderings #9

(images from, and
  • I'm putting my favourite blog first this week, because I love it so much, I don't want it to be a last-minute read! It is Jazzy's blog, Hivenn. Her blog is full of her beautiful photography (and it is gorgeous) and if you ever talk to her on twitter or instagram (something I seem to do a lot) you'll see she's very funny and lovely (and shares my love of Suits!). Gushing over, but her blog is great and you should check it out.
  • Burning Man has always sounded insane, to me. Butttt something about it being in the desert and the, obviously, burning of things sounds kind apealing to me at the same time? I don't really know anything about it, though, but seeing these photos from it are crazy! Particularly the aerial shots and you can see the crazy scale of it all, and the weirdly perfect radius around the central point. I kind of want to go even more, now!
  • It feels like I haven't gone out for a good drink in a long time. And, not that I'm an alcoholic or anything, but sometimes you just need to let your hair down. Most of my friends, and myself, have worked like mad this summer so there hasn't been much time for socialising. Anyway, when I saw this recipe for Moscow Mules on I really just wanted cocktails. All the cocktails. Anything green and spicy and limy.. I want it! Preferably in those beautiful glasses.
  • These home-made photo-filters at are one of those DIY's I see, and I know for sure I'm going to try out. They look so easy, how could I not? I hope they give as beautiful an effect as their photos.
  • I love, and I love photos of beautiful, unaffordable houses that I can live vicariously through. When I saw that she was doing a new feature, Yeah I could Live There, I knew I'd be hanging on every word.
  • I saw these photos of Baddesley Clinton from Foxtail & Fern (one of my ultimate favourite blogs!) a little while ago on my dashboard, but I recently went to Hever Castle and it reminded me of these pictures, so I hunted them down to have a look, and now I just really want to go there. It looks so picture-perfect.


  1. those homemade light filters are such a cute idea! thanks for sharing it. :)

    1. no problem, they're so adorable! i really hope they work well (: xx

  2. I've always wanted to go to burning man too, those photos are just stunning, especially the silhouette ones! I love the photo filter idea too, I'm going to pass the idea on to the boyfriend so he can have a little experiment, it looks so fun! :)

    1. like i think i'd hate it, but i'm so intrigued by it! it just sounds kind of awesome, out in the desert! and i think i have some transparencies around so i'm going to dig it out and give it a go. thanks for taking the time to read and comment, I love your blog! xx


I love getting comments and receiving them, and I will always reply to them, even if it takes me a little while, please be patient!
