I saw this beautiful acrylic on canvas painting by Daniel Shipton @ Spitafields market yesterday. Still debating whether or not to buy it before someone else snaps it up …

The rain room exhibition @ the barbican was amazing. 
3D cameras see your body so you can walk through the rain without getting wet. The queues are quite long but its defo worth it & it’s FREE. Well within everyone’s January budget ;). Xx

While this is by far not the best photo I’ve ever taken it was one of the first I showed my mum when I came home from 2 months in Switzerland because she just would not believe that the cows really wear cow bells! I took this photo on cycling route 52 starting from Interlaken Ost - a really easy cycling route with lots of beautiful views along the way.

It’s a cold, wet , miserable day here in Scotland and not much worth writing about has happened so instead of taking a photo of my lunch (egg sandwich if you must know) , I thought I’d share a photo I took of the loch at sunrise earlier this month on a wonderfully crisp winters morning.

Cafe Furious , Portese - where I spend many an evening with the lovely ladies I worked with on Camping Eden. It’s a beautiful bar/club with stunning views across Lake Garda towards Bardolino and a penchant for dodgy house music after midnight. Also , rather unusually for a lakeside bar it’s full of Italians.

This is a photo I took on my last day in Portese before I abandoned my netbook (oops!) and headed to Milan. The view from Furious isn’t done justice in this photo and it’s even better at night. Now that I’m back in Scotland I can think of nothing better than spending a lazy afternoon here enjoying the sun and drinking some cold (2euro!) pinot grigio.
