June Photos

I actually didn’t take that many photos this month. I got caught up in my many other hobbies, which I’m alright with. Honestly, I blame winter. It makes me want to stay inside and cross stitch. When it was warmer, I wanted to go out on trips and take photographs of everything!

Anyway, here’s some of my favourite photos from the past month.

Selfies

I’ve noticed that I’ve been lax in taking selfies lately. I always would take them after playing around with makeup, but lately I haven’t been too inspired. I also realized I’m wearing the same sweater in two of them. To be fair, it is my favourite at the moment!

Things

I still really like taking photos of things though. Hot chocolates and bath bombs are perfect for winter. I really loved completing my hot air balloon cross stitch. Also, this canvas print we added to our bedroom is so pretty. We’re thinking maybe we could paint that wall, so it makes it stand out even more. Could be a fun project ahead!

Shadow

Finally, I wanted to share this sneak peek of our cat Shadow! We’re getting her in around a week, and I managed to take this photo of her on our last visit. It’s the only non-blurry one I have. The camera on my phone is slow at reacting nowadays, and also I was trying not to take too many photos as we’re still getting to know each other. Her name definitely fits her perfectly though!

That’s it pretty much. As the weather stays cold, I stay bundled up inside with all my crafts and hot chocolates. I do still like taking photos, but it’s been put on the backburner next to my other interests.

What have you been taking photos of lately?

Pinspiration – Selfies Recreations

Another Pinspiration post. I just love wasting time on Pinterest. There’s so much incredible pictures out there that I can’t do. Especially selfies. That being said, I was scrolling through and saw some pictures that I could maaaaybe do.

If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen a few of these already. The ones I’m really proud of anyway. In fact , I liked one so much it’s its now my profile picture both on my blog and on Instagram!

Let’s get into it!

coffee

The hardest part for this was trying to find a clear spot in the house to do this. The light in our bedroom isn’t the greatest, so I went in the living room. It was complicated to try get the angle right, and not to show any of the weird things lying on the floor like wires. I really like how this one came out though.

Okay, so I’m not in Paris, and I wasn’t about to go find a landmark to lie down on the ground. It was raining. So I just lay down in my office and did it there. To be honest, I took only one take for this, and it was just so much fun to take a selfie upside down. Maybe I’ll do it more often!

Take Me South

Looking out

So, I thought I could do this on our window sill, but I kept falling off. So I took to the sunroom instead. I think I got a similar aesthetic going on. I did match the outfit as best I could. My only grey sweater is my Harry Potter themed one though! I wish I had her ring necklace though. I really like it.

This girl has a lot more ‘edge’ than me, but hey I tried. I like that I did the shoe bit, that was my favourite part of the whole picture. Also, her makeup is intense, and I could never do that in a million years. Still, it was fun to try recreate.

glasses coffee

This was my most favourite one. All it required was my stripy shirt, glasses, messy hair and a mug. That mug has nothing in it by the way. Sorry to ruin the illusion! This picture just seemed really cute, that I wanted to try recreate it. I wasn’t going to go to a cafe, cause I’m not that devoted to the recreation art, I just went to our sunroom. I’m really happy with this one!

That’s all I did. These were all enough work to be honest, and took me waaay too much time to do. But I had so much fun doing it, maybe one day I’ll do it again if I find more of these photos I like!

Let me know which one you think I recreated the best, or just which one is your favourite!
