Merry Christmas

I hope everyone was spoilt rotten and got to spend time with family and friends.
I hope it was a stunner with lots of sunshine or snowflakes out the window.
I spent my day eating and sleeping.
Just the way I like it.
Now off to the Coromandel for a relaxing week, and,
I wont be posting for a while.
Happy holiday season to all.

(This is definitely directed towards myself haha)

There comes a time in one's life where one must decide what is important.
I decided saving was no longer important,
(I realised that the money I earned would only really make me happy if I spent it on more photography)
 Holga was!
"For me, seeing everything through a plastic lens breaks up the sterility of the digital age. Leaving you with a world that is simpler, more colourful, and blissfully innocent."
I absolutely adore my new toy.
Thanks to my two lovely sisters
and christmas.

Dead Poets

“We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute.
We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race,
and the human race is filled with passion.
Medicine and law, business, engineering; these are noble pursuits, and necessary to sustain life,
But poetry, beauty, romance, love;
These are what we stay alive for...”
Keating; Dead Poets Society

I remember studying The Dead Poets Society in Highschool,
and unlike so many of the films we were forced to watch,
my love for this one grew as we watched it over and over, and our understanding of it grew larger and larger.
It's a classic.
And I still love it.
I found myself watching it again yesterday and I can't get it out of my mind.
Its a simple love. And it gets me everytime.

I've been a bit distant from my blogging lately.
So this post is just so you know how I have been spending my time....
I feel like this is the one time of year where you can eat everything,
and get away with it.

That Time of Year

Its that time of year again,
where a suprise awaits us everyday,
and reveals itself to us,
 for 25 straight days.

And because I dont have my own chocolate advent calender this year,
(although I may still go out and buy one)
I will make full use of the wonderful Wellington advent calender....

This beautiful depiction of Wellington is exactly what I needed to kick start my excitement for the joyful season. Untill now I have been a bit of a Grinch.
And I apologise.

So why not join me in enjoying all Wellington has to offer this Christmas.
