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.

Who needs goodiebags and blogger gifts when a few balloons can win the heart? Oh Miele, consider me a lifelong client.

Sorry for stealing your balloons from the showroom btw.

    I thought that wearing cropped tees without another tee/shirt under it always looked ugly, but you can have it (naturally). :)

  25. beautiful pic.

  26. you have a great blog! I really like your style!
    im following you

  27. such a lovely photo!

  28. Ahhhh so innocent.

  29. what a freedom spirit in this photo! your blog is an inspiration :)

    love from Portugal,


  30. haha so cute!

  31. What a gorgeous photo! The colours and composition are so so pretty. Lovely x

  32. I honestly think this might be the best picture you’ve ever put on here – I can’t say how much I love it! I tried to do a similar one on a bridge recently, but the balloons wouldn’t stay up!

    Also I really love the colours here – i’m sure i’ve read it somewhere before, but do you mind me asking what camera you use (I know it’s a canon)? I’m looking to upgrade to an slr that is brilliant but light enough to carry around often, and thought you might know something good.

    Hope you’re enjoying the sun!

  33. I’ve never commented before but your blog would be my favorite blog if I could say I have a favorite blog. :-) I love your humor, and your posts are never contrived or solely for the purpose of advertising something. Love your style – fashion-wise, creativity-wise, outlookonlife-wise. :D

  34. I’m so flattered, thank you :$

  49. thats a super shot

  50. Shini, this is beautiful.


  51. Wow, this is a lovely shot.

    Hey, I have a question. I know you shoot with a DSLR, so I was wondering what your recommendations were for a good stylish camera bag that doesn’t scream TOURIST. I was just wondering if you had any thoughts on that.

    Stephanie, always a fan

  52. Heya, I’m right now at the stage of carrying my camera around in about anything but if I was to take care of it then maybe something along the lines of this: http://www.calumetphoto.co.uk/item/311-125C/ http://www.calumetphoto.co.uk/item/311-323D/ http://www.calumetphoto.co.uk/item/311-323C/ http://www.calumetphoto.co.uk/item/311-111R/
    The price isn’t so amazing but I know that the bags are specifically made to carry cameras ;) Or you can just search ‘bag’ in that website, they have a huge range!

  53. Oooo, pretty.
