Photography: December Wrap-Up and January Goals

I'm trying out something new where I'll post my favourite pictures of the month. Not sure about it, but since it's a new year, I might as well try new things. If you don't know already, photography is another passion of mine. I have a tab for photography, but I figured I would reserve that for just random pictures, and have monthly wrap up posts for the "photo-a-day" challenge.

You've probably seen this from my Festival of Trees post. 

Wall stickers!!!

Steak for dinner on Christmas

Pasta and asparagus with cream of mushroom soup, made by yours truly

I got a new lens so I decided to take more pictures. Here's one of the ornaments
on my tree,

and here's the other.

Garland that I wrapped around the railing.

My Christmas tree when I turn the camera way out of focus. I love creating bokeh.
And these topics are my goals for January: You saw it here, so now you can hold me accountable when I don't do at least 15 of these themes.

Sunday Update: Presents!!

Sunday Update is where I link up posts from the past week, and also include a message.




I hope everyone had an awesome Christmas and also got some new things on Boxing Day if you went shopping! I just got money from my relatives, but used that to get a camera lens, a shirt, new gloves, and yes, a book. I got some reading done this week as well and it felt great considering the fact that I hadn't read in like two weeks.

Sad thing is, there's only a week left to my break, which means it'll be homework everyday again! I hope I haven't let my brain rot too much this week. Happy New Year, and happy reading! What did you get for Christmas?

Sunday Update: I'M FREE

Sunday Update is where I link up posts from the past week and also new books that I got!


AS YOU CAN TELL BY THE TITLE, I'M FREE! Free from what, you may ask? School and homework! Yea, it's only for 2 weeks, but that's 2 weeks where I can start reading again. I haven't read for 2 weeks. 2 weeks is a longer time than it may seem. I promise there will be a review this week, if not, I give you permission to come to my house and slap me.

Haha, Merry Christmas everyone, and happy reading! :)

Getting Festive!

I don't have anything Christmas related on the blog, but I did go to a festival in Edmonton called the Festival of Trees. It's where they showcase beautiful trees donated by people, and it's just awesome! I was there to perform with the school band, and we all got to walk around afterwards. There won't be a lot to read in this post, just enjoy the pictures!!

It's so cute!! :3

Polar bear decoration.

More decorations, loved it!

This snow globe is so pretty.

Weirdest thing ever.. haha

A tree wrapped around the picture below this!!

It actually changed colour on the inside, it was so nice!

I love this one! It's a cake.

I gotta say though, this one is my favourite!
