Frame Friday 001.

So many of my favourite bloggers have a weekly feature on their blogs and I think something like that is one of the things missing from Sailboat at the moment. I’ve been wracking my brains for ages trying to think of something appropriate for my blog that I could make into a weekly feature on a specific day, and when I say I’ve been thinking for ages, I mean ages! But really it was staring me in the face the entire time.

Taking more photographs is something I need to do more of. I keep missing out on capturing memories and I don’t want to miss out on anymore. Posting a weekly photograph will definitely encourage me to get snapping again, hopefully allow me to improve my photography skills and make sailboat a little more personal to me because I’m not just all about make up and beauty.

Lily from LLYMLRS has her wonderful Sunday Portrait series & Victoria from Lily Loves Lola does brilliant Monday Summaries and I wanted a cute title for my new series. Because of this I’ve found out that I am rubbish at coming up with snappy names, completely and utterly rubbish. My boyfriend however is a bit of a genius, so it’s thanks to him that Frame Friday’s are born! *Cue fanfare* Yayy.

I hope this is something you’ll find interesting, it’s certainly something I’m excited about starting and I’m hopeful that this time next year I’ll be able to see a distinct improvement in the quality of my photographs. Fingers crossed!

This is probably the one and only time my face will appear in a Frame Friday photograph but it seemed like a fitting way to start.

0001. This week I have mostly spent my time being generally uninteresting. It's been one of those weeks where everything seems to be wrong and you can't do any good no matter how hard you try. I've decided to make some changes so hopefully, in the coming weeks, things will start to get a little better.  Life is far too short to spend time being unhappy and it's up to me to make changes, no one else is going to do it for me.

0002. After a genuinely awful day at work I had one beautiful lady come in and tell me I was a lovely girl and a pleasure to meet me. It was lovely to meet her and it pretty much made my entire month. I really hope she knows just how wonderful she is. 



  1. I LOVE the idea for your new weekly blog feature. Needless to say, I also love that photo of your pretty face! You ARE a lovely girl so I'm happy to hear that her comment made your entire month :) xx

  2. It's always lovely when random strangers are so lovely to you and you just 'click' with new people.

    This seems like such a great feature, keep it up and I'm sure you'll see the improvement you're looking for :) xx

  3. Great idea sweety! And that's such a lovely thing for her to say, you ARE lovely though! No question :).
