Cold, grey January days

Its late January which means the winter months are slowly moving on, with Spring in sights (sort of!). For the cold winter months which are often bleak and grey its best to spend time inside, sit down and try to keep warm! As I currently spend days at home often, working on my university assignments, my usual lunch on these cold January days is a bowl of warm soup; which I love! Its one of those elements that I really enjoy about cold days, being able to eat comfort food in a warm central heated home. I like different variations of soup and this one (shown) was Potato and Leek. I added dried herbs and crushed walnuts which added some crunch, and of course made it look nice!
I hope you are having a great January!

Frosty early mornings!

I am posting again after months of neglecting my blog! I am at University and so things are very hectic right now! Just a quick post to say I have nonetheless decided to return to my blog and focus my posts on my love for photography and travel.
Although this winter has been quite mild where I live, last week we experienced a frost and cold temperatures, which I had to take advantage of! I went outside to take pictures in the early morning of plants in the garden. It resulted in the title image, and I found it really relaxing to be outside taking unplanned photographs of anything I saw (usually I have a plan of what to take!). It did result in cold hands and numb fingers, but nonetheless it was definitely worth it!
