Photo of the Day: Tulips and towers and a turbulent sky

16 May 2014 Photo of the Day

I had a lot of fun with this image in Lightroom and Photoshop. Not every photo needs serious post-processing, but sometimes it’s fun to push the boundaries a bit and see what happens.

In which she utterly fails to lose a pound in six weeks

3 May 2014 Me, only better

I will try very hard not to whine during this blog post, I promise, but I am soooo frustrated that I need some moral support, and maybe some advice. As you might have noticed, I am really working on healthier living. I cook more than 90 per cent of our meals from scratch and I […]
