There are all sorts of different dragons around. Dragons with one, three or seven heads. Dragons with good intentions and dragons with bad intentions. And of course there are the dragons in different colors. Green dragons and blue dragons, red dragons and purple dragons. .... purple dragon is still to come.⠀
In short, if you are hosting a dragon party, these masks are a must. (see link in bio)⠀

It might have taken a while, but editing with apps - the workflow is now up via the link in my profile.
I asked you in my stories some time before Christmas (like November) if you would like a step by step guide to one of my edits, so there it is! Along with all the other photography resources and posts I forget to mention here.
I have also updated the list of editing apps in my ‘on editing photos’ download to include apps for adding text, for editing films and for creative edits.
Finding my writing feet again has been so much fun!
I took them to Lewes this morning, love this town and it’s colourful corners, and had a lovely catch up with @lewesmap too.
Happy days x

Oggi mi piacerebbe spendere due parole su una questione per me super importante: lo studio. Per chi non lo sapesse frequento la facoltà di comunicazione alla Sapienza di Roma. Odio tutto di questa facoltà, dalle materie ai professori. Ma sono a 4 esami dalla laurea e ormai ho finito. Durante il primo anno capivo che qualcosa non andava, zero meritocrazia ed esami con valutazioni totalmente errate; invece di fermarmi ho continuato. il secondo anno è stato una vera tragedia, cresceva la consapevolezza di aver fatto un errore. Il terzo anno sono tornata sui miei passi, apprezzando alcuni esami. Ora a 4 esami dalla fine posso dire di poter contare sulle dita di una mano quello che questa facoltà mi ha fatto apprendere. Ma un insegnamento vale più di tutto: abbiate il coraggio di inseguire i vostri sogni, senza aver paura di ammettere di aver fatto un errore di calcolo. Ho sbagliato, ho perso tanto e forse troppo tempo, ma ne esco più forte di prima, dopo aver capito “cosa voglio fare da grande”, sto portando avanti un progetto e lo sto facendo da sola, i miei 18 sono gli insuccessi e i miei 30 le soddisfazioni. E con questi mi rapporto ogni giorno, imparando ad accettare ed apprendere dai primi e a godermi i secondi. Se siete arrivati fino a qui non posso che ringraziarvi e farvi un grande in bocca al lupo per ogni evento positivo e negativo della vostra vita ❤️ e mi raccomando: non abbiate paura di inseguire i vostri sogni ❤️

Currently in pyjamas with greasy hair, blotchy weather-beaten skin shovelling mini Daim bars into my face while I update my CV (is there literally anything worse?!). So here’s a picture from the day I bought these beautiful earrings in the @oliverbonas sale and felt at LEAST 75 bucks 😍✌🏻

Good morning! Or night, or whatever it is when you see this. It’s a truly miserable day out here, and I’m dreaming of spring days, gardens, and fresh flowers. I do love some #lovelydeadcrap for sure, but it will be so nice when we have green stuff growing around here again. Only, like, 6 more months for that! 😂 So for now, I’ll keep on embracing the browns and grays. Keep calm and January on.

Nessuno di noi aveva più fame, ma è proprio questo il bello del momento dei dolci: Tutta la loro raffinatezza si coglie solo quando non li mangiamo per placare la fame, ma quando l’orgia di dolcezza zuccherina non soddisfa un bisogno primario, ma ci ricopre il palato di tutta la benevolenza del mondo. #murielbarbery #estasiculinarie #edizioni_eo #edizionieo #dolcifattiincasa #handmade #feliceadesso #winterbreak #wintermood #muffins #muffinvegan #veganstyle #cioccolato #cacaopuro #muffinbreak #piaceredelpalato #estasidelpalato #ofsimplethings #seekinspirecreate #theslowdowncollective #winter4igers

Sometimes it’s the simple things that can really make your day. It’s another snow day today but I am oddly relaxed about it (normally I get annoyed that I won’t get much accomplished but since I pretty much accepted this fact last night when I went to bed -as the ❄️ snow and freezing rain was happening- it’s been a nice morning). Plus we had Finn bread 🥖 for breakfast. My sister made it for Christmas but we literally had too much food so I tucked it away in the freezer. I like mine toasted with butter...ahhh it’s beyond yummy!
Back in high school we had a fabulous math teacher who did ‘cookie-Friday. He’d make a calendar and each student would have a Friday that term to bring cookies or something baked (like the Finn bread, there was a guy that always brought it and I ❤️❤️❤️❤️ it!). You would eat cookies and write your math test each Friday. Seemed pretty perfect to me. #adaywithbakedgoodsisagoodday

I don’t think his mission was to divide people against people but to split and separate us away from ourselves, freeing us from our predjudices, our need for control, a sense of what’s right, our worries, our anxieties and our fears and into freedom from all of that, through simple trust and surrender, to feel his warm embrace, his love and care today through thanksgiving and re enter the world aligned with him.

Flowers • Квіти.
Чую від деяких людей, що вони не люблять, наприклад, троянди. Завжди починаю пояснювати таким людям (навіщо я це роблю 🤔?!), що сортів троянд вееличезна кількість, хоч якісь точно ж можуть сподобатись, може просто варто їх побачити...
Мабуть вічно дивитимусь на людей які не люблять хоч якісь квіти зі здивованим обличчям (як би не намагалась це приховати все рівно вираз очей змінюється, коли таке чую) Хоча припускаю - може людина має алергію чи, наприклад, якусь версію про те, що квіти не можна рвати або просто людина байдужа до квітів.
Я ж люблю, напевно, всі квіти(і вам це видно😅), частенько сама їх купую. Як ці, наприклад. Отримую в подарунок - рідше. І от нещодавно мені в директ прийшов такий текст від якогось чоловіка: «Представляю как мучится Ваш молодой человек выбирая для Вас цветы, у Вас же тут столько разных цветов! Попробуй Вам угодить и наверное невозможно Вас удивить!» Тому напишу наступне:
мені здається я дивуюсь кожній квітці, яка потрапляє в моє поле зору. А якщо вона ще й потрапляє мені до рук, то я точно радію і одразу думаю як її сфотографувати 😂
Люблю я квіти, є в них щось таке прекрасне, що душа співає коли вони поряд або помічаю як ніби повітря змінюється, коли вони в кімнаті 😇.
Просто коли даруєте їх зверніть увагу на свіжість та обгортку (інколи ліпше без неї, але це окрема тема, яку я обов‘язково розкрию в майбутньому)

І, звісно, не забудьте під вашими знімками з квітами в руках ставити мій тег #natureinthehands 😉🙈 Дякую!

Big up to my sister in law for some seriously excellent info. Did you watch Blue Planet II and cry about the plastics? Here's some GOOD NEWS.

1) A bunch of clever clogs and super geeks will be awarded a wedge of prize money to help them scale their innovations to redesign and rethink plastic packaging.

newplasticseconomy.org/innovation-prize *Some of the winning examples include:* Packaging made from wood and plant waste, which can be fed to bacteria and turned into new plastic again. (WHAT!? Yes.) and an organic coating for plastic that makes fresh food packaging compostable.

But what's the point in doing this if the big brands producing all our consumer goods don't bother to change? See below.

2) Today at the World Economic Forum in Davos, eleven global brands, retailers, and packaging companies - Amcor, Ecover, evian, L’Oréal, Mars, M&S, PepsiCo, The Coca-Cola Company, Unilever, Walmart and Werner & Mertz - *announce to use 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable packaging by 2025*. Let's keep plastics in the economy and out of the ocean. .

Pretty sure when you see swans on a frozen pond, you stop ✋ what you’re doing and take a picture 📷
