I've moved on...
...to a different domain. Why, what were you thinking? The truth is, I just woke up one day and decided it's time for a change—a metamorphosis, if you will; or, in layman's terms, if Britney can shave her head, then maybe so can I? Nevertheless, it's been a rather handsome 10 years of talking to you, and thank you for putting up with all my moodswings and terrible dad jokes. Fear not! The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.

Numbered are the days I will be able to rely on the blinding morning sunlight as a slap on the face and get out of bed like a normal human being. Cue what I call the spinning beachball of death syndrome, wherein I try to convince myself, way past the 14th snooze, that life does exist outside the micro-climate that is under my duvet. The clocks went back over the weekend and we had one of the most beautiful Sundays I’d seen in a while. I hit the flower market, prepared it’d be my last this year, and bought a bunch of dahlia’s for a tenner. By the afternoon I had managed to cross town to the V&A, wilting flowers in tow, which only confirmed the power of weather-influenced stamina, one that we were about to be deprived of, shortly.

Alas, the season of overpriced eggs benedict breakfasts ‘at that hipster place’ for the sake of a sunny morning is coming to an end. That, and a run around the block at random times in the day (because the weather is nice), which ultimately does nothing, really, for your diet. Try running on a morning that looks like stupid-o’clock in mid-November, then you can put ‘jogger’ back on your Facebook profile. My personal challenge is getting up at 7am this quarter, and limiting longing looks towards the bed down to one hour. What’s yours?

  1. These are beautiful pictures as usual Shini. Love the grey bag!

    – Colours of Autumn-

  2. Lovely photography and V&A is one of the best museums in London for sure!


  3. Thos dahlias are gorgeous, I’m having the exact same colour at home at this very moment! :) I always wake up around 8 or 8:30, I’m quite lazy in that sense compared to your 7am goal, but also trying to enjoy it while I can since I’m in my last year of studying! (Although there are also days I have to wake up at 5:30 so that balances it out I guess!)

    Love, Rachel

  4. Stunning post!

  5. Beautiful photos and love the earrings!


  6. Were the pictures at the V&A shot with a tripod too? Did they let you take a tripod in with you??

  7. Beautiful pictures, Shini! I’m pretty much a morning person so I don’t have a hard time getting up in the morning. :P My challenge is probably controlling/disciplining myself to not reach for the fridge and grab really unhealthy food. Must. start. eating. clean.


  8. I love how you accessorize!

    You are so brave trying to wake up at seven! I can hardly do at 9 a.m. especially after time change.

  15. Love your photos!

    Limited longing looks towards the bed – I have fifteen minutes. I can’t afford more in the morning!

    Beautiful photos. I love the bag and the earrings that you are wearing.

    Beautiful flowers and you look so sophisticated. Simple yet elegant. I usually like autumn (because of the beautiful colours) and winter (because of snow and Christmas) but this year around I’m really not feeling the autumn/winter vibe. I’d rather just spend my days in my bed, under my duvet.

  18. Photography at is best

  19. Its so difficult to wake up early especially when you are a photographer, for some reason the late nights always produce better edits in my opinion. Maybe because I feel as if Im in a giant darkroom and Im transported back to my film days. Beautiful images as always

  20. Beautiful, the pictures, the flowers, the colours, the aesthetics, everything!
    Lots of love, xx
