Wandering the streets of Lincoln

The past two years I have been fortunate enough to travel a lot, from Chicago to Florida, Toronto, New York and London, and most recently, Lincoln. I may have caught the 'travel bug'.

Travelling can be stressful at times but I've learnt to take it as it comes and enjoy the whole experience. I will never forget the journey from our little village in France all the way to Ontario in Canada for our uni exchange trip! I occasionally experience the 'travel anxiety' the morning of the travels, but once my bag is weighed and I've checked my passport for the millionth time I get excited at the prospect of exploring another corner of the earth. 

Next on my list is a few places in Europe. I've been trying to convince my family & friends to go to Italy with me (the Amalfi Coast anyone?) and there are so many other places I want to see in the not too distant future. Even though I've lived in France most of my life I haven't been to most of it's major cities, the south of France and French riviera is really appealing right now!

Crochet Frills in La Rochelle

Finally a new outfit post. I know, it's been quite a while and believe me I've been itching to take outfit posts everyday this summer! 

I recently went to La Rochelle for a few hours. The beautiful town is about an hours drive from where I live, so every summer we drive up there on different occasions to enjoy the weather and walk along the coast line. It's very popular amongst tourists pretty much all year round, but it's always a wonderful atmosphere.

London Photo Diary

Hello everyone!

I have another photo-diary for you today! These pictures were all taken in London over the course of 3 days, 3 very busy days! We never get to see everyone we'd like to see during our visits as we never have enough time, but we always try to do as much as possible.

May in 35mm film

We took these pictures during our last week in Poitiers, a week well spent with our closest friends. We were blessed with warm weather, so we quickly grabbed our Canon A1 film camera to shoot some pictures in our favorite park and town square. I've always expressed my love for film on our blog, but I love film pictures of friends and family most of all, the ones that capture more personal moments, and wonderful in-the-moment memories.

We do share a fair amount about ourselves on this blog, but we tend to keep our personal lives more private. This is one of the few posts we've made which include pictures of our close friends; I'm so pleased with how they came out! I love seeing how our pictures progress over time, whether it's the lighting or the composition, I always find it exciting.

48 Hours in Lincoln, England

During our trip to England, Holly & I went to Lincoln for two days! I love visiting various towns in 
the UK as I rarely travel outside of London & Stevenage whenever I go back.

Lincoln is a cathedral city in the East Midlands of England. Once a Roman town, Lincoln has a rich historical background which is evidenced by the different styles of architecture present throughout the city: the Lincoln Cathedral is a magnificent example of English Gothic style architecture whereas the Lincoln Castle is a Norman Castle that dates back to the 11th Century.

Reflecting On 3+ Years Of Blogging: Evolution, Success & Future Goals

Three years ago, Holly & I began our 'blogging journey'!

 In June 2013, we took the leap and started a joint fashion/personal style blog. Despite already following several bloggers, it took us a year or so to actually set up our own blog. Looking back now, I can't help but smile and remember how it all started out!

The Easton Walled Gardens

Hello all! Over the next few weeks we'll be sharing some pictures from our trip in England! So in terms of outfit posts, I think this summer it will be a question of quality rather than quantity, however in the mean time here are one of the many photography & travel based posts of this summer.

Holly & I were truly spoiled by all of our grandparents. The first few days of our trip were spent exploring the gorgeous town of Lincoln. On our way there, we stopped off at the Easton Walled Gardens.
