Five Things I Love Friday 008.

One. Happy Memories.

Finding these photographs has inspired me to dig out my old film camera and start using it again. I never print out my digital photographs. Never. They just sit on my computer or on my hard drive doing nothing. I rarely look at them so it’s almost pointless that they’re even there. Film photography is a completely different thing to me altogether. There’s something so completely magical about the thrill of going to collect your films from the developer, taking them home and looking through them. I always find at least one image that I’d forgotten I’d taken and it takes me back to that day. I’m going to find and go through every photograph in my house and organise them into pretty albums. In a sea of digital this and digital that I’m determined to hang on to my analogue photographs.

Two. My charm bracelet.

I have a few pieces of jewellery that I especially love but my charm bracelet will always be super special to me. Every single charm is significant and I'll continue to add to it until it's completely full of memories and markers of momentous occasions in my life. I have a couple of charms I need to add, a golden bear that I've had since I was tiny, a sailboat to symbolise both my love of all things nautical and my little place on the Internet & a bunny that was given to me by my boyfriend when I adopted Ralphie. I love that when I buy my first house, get married, have a baby or whatever else happens in my life I know I'll be able to add to my charm bracelet & have that forever as a keepsake and a visual representation of how I chose to spend my years.

Three. Ikea.

Even though I have a hatred of almost anything that comes flat packed I can never resist a wander around Ikea and a glass of lingonberry juice!

Four. Milkshakes.
Especially strawberry milkshakes. But only if they’re ice cold! They're the most perfect summertime treat with a little bit of ice cream and some fresh fruit!

Five. Cute home decorations. 
I have no idea where I got these cute little elephants but I'm completely in love with them. I wish I had a flair for interior design, but I don't, so instead I'll just continue throw things together that I like and hope for the best!

  9. Oh I love the elephants!

    I pretty much stopped having real photos I can put into albums when I got a digital camera. I have three beautiful albums that need filling, I really should make an effort to print my digital pictures and fill those albums with memories!

  14. This was lovely :) Totally know what you mean about film cameras and proper printed pictures. I even miss my younger teens when I didnt have a digital camera, and a little throwaway camera from boots was major excitement :) I forget about the pictures I have on my computer. I do love a bit of Ikea too girlie (mostly for the meatballs and lingonberry juice, can't leave without a sneaky munch in their cafe!) xx
