lonelycity.photographytips

A few weeks ago, I was asked by the sweet Raychael of Agent Mystery Case to guest post on photography. So if you’re curious on how you could improve your photos (whether for your blog or to simply capture life’s precious moments) and get a few tips, please do go and have a look around Agent Mystery Case.

Just on an end note, I would love to know what you think about the post? And also, if there any other blogging tips or posts which you would like me to do a feature on? It would be such a delight to hear from all my treasured readers!

Hope you’re having a sublime day.

Today has been filled with errands, beginning with a lovely lingering breakfast with my dear sister, a short drive into the city, one too many cups of coffee, and ending with a heart warming dinner with all the family. And so now I am able to take a bit of time and introduce you to the charming work of Christine Lim.02.ChristineLim
In every single photo, Christine beautifully captures each moment. From the warm afternoon sun setting behind a grand vineyard to the roaring cheers of wedding guests as they give applause to the newlywed couple, no detail is left behind. 03.ChristineLim

Happy Weekend

Amidst polished pianos, piles of beautiful thick paper and the recent weather heating up so much it seems to have caught everyone by surprise,  the week is at an end. With the weekend beckoning at us, there are talks of trips to the beach, early coffees on our patio and picnics to be planned as we take advantage of the pleasant temperature that still remains, at least until the intense heat of the summer invades our city. But until then, here are a few weekend links from around the globe:01.ACupOfJo.ChristmasParties

Saturday’s Child

VenetiaScott03

…works hard for a living. She gets up early in the morning and is always the first one at the office. Amidst office meetings, correspondence of mail and researching for inspiration, she always makes a quick dash for coffee (a long macchiato, of course) at two o’clock in the afternoon at the corner cafe – a chance for some fresh air away from the stress of the office. Saturday’s child works late into the evening, is always last to leave the office, but on the weekends, indulges just the slightest bit with a visit to the local jazz bar after work.

Friday’s Child

NIKOLAYBIRYUKOV01

…is loving and giving, but let’s have some fun and run with our imaginations. Friday’s girl is joined by the most dashing Mr and today brings us a love story.

NIKOLAYBIRYUKOV04 NIKOLAYBIRYUKOV03

Friday’s child is gentle and loving, believing in love and the happiness that can be found in it. The sweet couple begins with hot coffee and buttery croissants at a quaint cafe by the river, followed by a stroll amongst the beautiful architecture that surrounds the beautiful city they call home. Together, they explore antique bookshops, pick up a loaf of freshly baked bread from their local bakery and browse through seasonal produce at the markets as they think of what to cook for dinner. Whilst she wasn’t looking, her gentleman buys her a bouquet of pale pink peonies – when presented, was greeted with a laugh and a kiss. Late in the afternoon, she is feeling a bit peckish. So just before they head home, he buys her a pack of macarons, something to nibble on as they take the scenic route home. Oh, what a beautiful day it has been for Friday’s child.

Thursday’s Child

LeahDeWavrin.MaxCardelli

Thursday’s child has far to go. Some say the meaning behind that refers to how Thursday’s child may have to overcome many obstacles before she reaches her goals, but today, we’ll think of it in the more literal sense. Thursday’s child is taking one very long (but as always, luxurious and glamorous) train ride on the Orient Express.

Tuesday’s Child

KarlieKloss.ClassicRevival

…is full of grace, intelligence and elegance. Though she is born of the current day which we all live in, she yearns for the fashion of a by gone era. Full circle skirts supported by layers of organza, silk scarves and the perfect clutch. Lavish as they may be, it is a shame that we do not see more of them in our day to day wear. To the Tuesday’s child, she hopes that these items may one day be a way of life whilst others find her odd to be caught up in such an old fashioned era. But she listens not to their hushed whispers and continues to dream of what the future may hold…
