in Life

001: Finally jumped on the snapchat bandwagon after being completely and utterly mystified by how it works for months. Add me if you are interested in all the random shit I get up to that I remember to actually snapchat. (snapchat: lovefromberlin)
002: Celebrated my birthday early this weekend on Saturday with friends. So happy to have a private garden behind my flat.
003: Still trying to find that sweet spot between work and play. Pretty sure this one is a life-long struggle.
004: Gearing up for my trip to the US next week.

Just a bit of reading material for this lovely lazy Sunday, because we all know the best thing about Sundays is hanging around in your PJs all day and never getting dressed:

001: This amazing Orange Moscow Mule Mocktail recipe means that you can be drinking from morning to night, on and off the job, WITHOUT being a hot mess or breaking any rules of conduct at work.
002: I will be shooting my first wedding in September, so I have been spending lots of my free time looking at amazing inspiration like this.
003: The Nikon user is to the Canon user as a Hatfield is to a McCoy. Thinking of switching to Canon, so this Nikon User’s honest assessment of using Canon for a week was definitely helpful. If anyone else is interested in the debate, this is definitely worth reading.
004: “35 slogans for college majors if they were actually honest”? Just some good ole click bait.
005: Recycling is great but Reducing and Reusing are just as, if not more, important. This article will help you understand why.

Too bad I came back to China over summer break, because it’s blocked here! / Have fun in USA and safe travels :D -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

      Thank you so much, Audrey! I will definitely be sharing the photos on LFF, my photography facebook account and my website :) Most of my friends in Berlin are actually not really into social media that much, but maybe I can get them on board with snapchat! It’s definitely fun! And thanks! I hate flying, but somehow in those bigger planes I always feel safer.

  • This Nikon User’s Week with Canon article is really interesting! I am a Nikon shooter, both digital and analogue but there are times I wonder whether I made a right decision choosing Nikon over Canon as I envy its colours from portraits.

    Orange Moscow Mule Mocktail sounds lush, I swear by the alcohol verson :)

    Natalie Allen’s photography- wow!

    Katrina Sophia

  • I loved that article about trying out Canon for a week haha. I’ve always considered trying out Nikon and see how it compares. Some people swear by Nikon always.
