the golden hour

The Golden hour in my studio has always been my favourite time of the day, no matter what the time of the year it is, its always so peaceful and the most beautiful beams of sunlight break through my lace curtains. I embrace the differnet colours that appear, its so hard to capture those brief moments with a camera, I always wish i could take photos with my eyes, sounds so silly, but it would just be perfect to create what you see directly in a photo, capture the perfect moment, these moments are so fleeting and lovely, if i think about it, its probably good that i never take the perfect photo, we are always in pursuit of it, and if i reached it I would probably have to hang up my camera and never snap away again! Since i have decided not to blog fully, I have taken so many photos and D.I.Y posts to share with you, I just want everything to be perfect before I fully throw myself back into blogging, So excited. I think June will be my month to get back into new things. My current colour obsessions are definitely the above swatches, coral and turquoise are my ultimate favourites mixed in with Mustard, I am in a bit of a nesting mode at the moment, not entirely sure why, I am looking at flats and houses totally lusting over things I am yet able to afford...A girl can dream right? Anyway... i've share my favourite time of the day Whats your favourite time of the day?

    even though I love the night, I have to admit I'm in love with sunsets. sunrises would be my favorites if I could actually get up that early, but..

  11. Such gorgeous photos, you get so much lovely natural light in your room xoxo

  12. The photos are stunning :)
    After being a lazy teenager who would do anything for a good lie-in, I've started being a morning person - there's something about starting drawing and/or working at the beginning of the day whilst everything is relatively quiet and relaxed that's quite calming. The bags under my eyes from doing this, however, arent so appealing!!!


  13. aw, i don't have favourite time during the day. i hate evenings cus i'm always depressed then.


  14. Nice photos :) .. and Love your blog ! :)
