Weekly Scrapbook #1

This post is inspired by one of my favourite fashion bloggers, Lizzy Hadfield (Shot from the Street), whereby she posts a weekly scrapbook as a way of documenting her week. I thought this was a great idea for a weekly post, since I always have my camera on me and snap things as I go and often they don’t particularly warrant a whole blog post, but instead this photo / diary type post would be perfect to include some of my favourite snaps of the week alongside a bit of a diary of what I have been up to!

I started the week with a little trip out with my camera. I am always on the look out for derelict buildings to photograph and after discovering a nearby derelict former factory, I have since discovered my late Grandad and other relatives worked there!

After missing my regular visits that I took throughout Summer to various greenhouses/glasshouses, I decided to check out the local allotments and really enjoyed seeing how gardeners had used various items to cobble together greenhouses.

My lovely mum took me for a little girly trip to Manchester and I love just walking the streets of the Northern Quarter, photographing the side streets and NYC style fire-escapes. We also came across a gorgeous coffee shop called Idle Hands which I highly recommend if your Manchester-bound!

I had an interview last week, which is nerve-wracking anyway but as someone with an acute anxiety disorder, it felt like such a huge deal  – but I overcame it and found out at the end of the week that I had got the job! I am saving currently for to do a Yoga Teacher Training course and finally feel my goal might be in sight. I will do an anxiety update soon as I feel there has been a lot of changes lately but that will be in a separate post!

As normal I did a lot of self practice Yoga – I thought this diary set up would be great for me to personally see my own progress in my practice too.

I photographed a gorgeous art event at the yoga studio that I go, Love and Light Shala, which was just beautiful and a real treat to photograph and join in on. Katrina, a fabulous local artist, guided us through various drawing tasks which were so much fun and got us experimenting with different materials and ways of drawing. Check out The Shala’s social media pages/website for upcoming events and classes!

And I ended the week in Bristol for a friend’s 30th night out with our wonderful creative bunch of pals, following by a sleepy sunday coffee at my absolute favourite cafe in Bristol – Albatross Cafe.
