A creative lifestyle blog.

With warmer weather and later nights the season of summer has lots to enjoy. I'm talking festivals, summer holidays, beach trips, picnics and BBQs galore. Summer traditionally is a season for spending time out and about with friends and family but that doesn't mean your home should be forgotten in the warmer months. 

Despite living in an apartment and not having a garden (balconies are a god send by the way) summer is one of my favourite seasons within my home. The rooms are brimming with light, colours shine brighter and stronger than ever before and flowers adorn every surface. With my final summer in my home drawing to an end I am trying to take in every detail before my new journey begins. Therefore when Ocean Loans got in touch and asked me to get involved with their Summer Polaroid Project I jumped at the chance. 

The premise was simple, capture my home in a way in which celebrated summer with the use of the Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Camera*. Long term readers will be aware of my love for Instax photography, being that I already own the Fujifilm Instax 210 and the Fujifilm Instax SHARE. I was super exited to get my hands on the adorable little mint camera as soon as it arrived and got to taking some snaps as soon as the sun made its way through the clouds, english summer problems. 

As I mentioned above, my home is full to the brim with flowers and houseplants come the summer month so I decided to focus on these mainly and then throw in a few snapshots of my home decor for when i'm old and grey and want to get all nostalgic over my first home. I happily snapped around my apartment till my tenth film was taken and then sat back and eagerly waited for them all to fully develop. 

I am so pleased I got the opportunity to be involved with this project as those little photos do really mean a lot to me and I know for a fact are something I will cherish in years to come. Printing photos is cool guys and Instax cameras are even cooler, get on it!
