St. Andrews

Last weekend I visited the small coastal village of St. Andrews in Scotland with two of my friends. We walked down to the harbour and breathed in the fresh sea air before pottering about the quaint charity shops and cafes, hopping from the freezing cold into the inviting warmth of the shops. We spent lots of our time in one particular charity shop which was packed with hundreds of childhood books and ornate encyclopaedias - it was great to reminisce through all the illustrated books and stories I used to love reading (and still do!). I also was inspired by some little ceramic creatures I found to try out some for myself this semester.

Oh, and here is a song officially out just yesterday: Jimmy Napes - Give it up

Here are some pictures of our trip:

Goodbye 2014, Hello 2015

Goodbye Christmas, hello New Year!

Some pictures I took at home over the days leading up to Christmas.
Here's a song to lead you into the New Year: Just Kiddin - Thinking About It

(I made the table decoration using greenery from the garden; it was really easy to put together along with some pinecones, dried lemon and orange slices, and cinnamon bundles - all attached with some wire so push into the green foam surrounding the candle)
