Around here: November sunshine.






I can hardly believe that over half of November is in the books already. The past weeks have felt like such a blur of work and chores and not much else. To be honest I don't think I ever will grow used to how dark it gets at this time of year. Fortunately the past weekend offered some sunshine, and I finally got the opportunity to try out my new Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art lens in daylight. Needless to say it's a major upgrade from the Nikkor 35mm F1.8G DX lens which has been my go-to lens these past years, and I have to say that I am very pleased with it so far. I can't wait to get to know it better.

Project Life: October.

I've decided that it makes the most sense that I start by sharing my most recent Project Life spreads here, so I thought I'd do that in this entry. October was a beautiful month with more sunshine than usual, which obviously translated to more photos than usual. I ended up devoting four entire spreads to my October photos, excluding the ones from Croatia which I have yet to scrapbook.


Various glimpses from the month captured with my iPhone.


Our outing to Kristianopel.

Some more glimses from the month.

Life lately: October 2015.



Watching | Not as many new films as earlier this year (perhaps because this is the time of year when there's actually something to watch on TV for once?). I watched Spy and then Everest at the cinema, both of which I really enjoyed. As for TV, most notably, Så Mycket Bättre is back which is always exciting.

Listening to | Miriam Bryant because she's by far the best singer on Så Mycket Bättre and I'm predictable that way. Other than that my favourite Moa Lignell released a new album, and of course Adele's new single hasn't escaped me.

Consuming | Satsumas! I know it's the same answer as last month, but nothing else really stands out.

Reading | I finished What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty, which was sort of entertaining in unexpected ways. I have a policy of avoiding chick-lit but I stumbled across it at the library and couldn't find anything else, so I picked it up. I recently started reading Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay, which is more in line with what I usually read.

Visiting | October went by so fast that I hardly remember... But the parents, as always.

Enjoying | The many beautiful autumn days October blessed us with, Project Life, our Halloween party at work + being part of the Party Planning Committee and lots of fun busy days at work...

Making | Project Life spreads :)

Looking forward to | Trying out my recent purchase, the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art Lens that has been on my wishlist for a year + some news I'm expecting later this month that might be really exciting.
