December Details

28 December 2012

As if it's the 28th of December!  I'm now at that point in the festive season where I've lost all track of what day it is and think that having a cheese platter after every dinner is perfectly sensible.  I don't want it to end!  After months of deliberating, I finally got myself an iPhone this year and another technology addiction.  I now roam the streets ready to capture life's picturesque moments and apply the perfect filter, hopefully achieving the balance between experiencing things and pure documentation.  This post sums my feelings up well. It's been interesting to follow some of my favourite bloggers and brands and see snapshots into their daily lives, but tricky to not wonder whether life is greener on the other side.  2013 is going to be about creating these moments for myself and not worrying too much if there isn't a photo to match.  This is a Marshmallow-tinted view of how my December looked.
