…Because it is SO much fun to start the new year off with a bright burst of colour, here you go! Yellow is my favourite colour in the whole world (closely followed by pink!) and genuinely makes me really happy. You wouldn’t believe how excited I was when my parents presented me with this beautiful pastel yellow Instax Mini 8 for Christmas. I’ve been obsessed with Polaroid cameras for years, so am ecstatic to finally have one of my very own. Plus, I am impressed that I had enough willpower to resist choosing pink – I don’t think my guy, Barnaby would have been quite as happy to be carting around a pink camera.

In other news, I hope you all had a terrific new year celebration! Myself and Barnaby had all kinds of wild plans; we wanted to spend our day in the sun drinking cider, slowly getting more and more rosy-cheeked.. Well, that was the plan! Instead, we ended up cosying up at home with mango cider (gotta get that cider in there somewhere), celebrating the midnight countdown with a smooch in a stairwell, and finally, staying up until 3am watching The Office. If you ask me, it sounds like the perfect start to the new year.

  1. I loooove yellow, and you pull it off so well! The contrast with your dark hair is really nice. Also, that mellow New Year’s celebration sounds perfect, mango cider and all.

  2. Gorgeous outfit! I love how you coordinated everything right down to the wall in the background :)

  3. Its my first time on your blog and it is just so adorable! Will follow (:

  5. Lovely yellow! The dress is fabulous and I adore your instax mini. I’ve been wanting one for a while but I’ve never gotten around to getting one.

  6. This is the happiest post ever – I just adore everything – the hair, the camera, the shoes – and the dress.. oh my!

  7. At first I was just going to compliment you on your outfit but EVERYTHING in your photos is so perfect, right down to the last detail! (The polaroid picture in front of the wall is just such a fantastic touch!)


  8. Haha I also got a yellow Instax mini for Christmas! Such a cute camera. The only downside is the film is quite expensive.. I guess that just makes each picture you take with it more special!

  9. I stumbled upon your blog from link of a post about DIY Canvas Bags and I just wanted to take the time to tell you that I am obsessed with instant cameras so I got really excited when I saw your profile picture for your website. You should consider posting pictures that you took with your camera because I am always on the look out for really cute and cool instax pictures!
    Take Care,
