Three days have passed on our August break and our prompts were where we live, bicycle and our favourite novel as the above photos show. Today’s prompt is glass and its now 5pm and I still haven’t taken today’s photo but its a long time till bedtime.

Have you been joining in with the August break?

August Break Day 3: Roses.


Today I want to share a hashtag on Instagram that I am loving and it’s #gothictonic . The photos in this tag are moody, dark and beautiful all at the same time, some look more like old oil paintings than photos. This is the second photo I am going to use this hashtag with the first one was this.

Have a look at the hashtag on Instagram and let me know what you think.

August Break Day 2: Gold


Last week we ran out of milk and had none from breakfast so I went to one of our local supermarkets, they were giving out free bunches of flowers to everyone doing their shopping, it brightened my morning and my kitchen, over a week later and they are still going strong. Their golden colours brighten my kitchen on grey summer days like today.

August Break Day 1: Morning.


The highlight of my morning is my breakfast, I love having time to enjoy it. I normally try to take nearly an hour for breakfast, having porridge everyday, a bucket of coffee and something to read.

Taking An August Break 2017.


One of the first ever blogs I read was one by Susannah Conway , her Instagram was also one of the first I started following. Her blog is beautiful , well written and a joy to read and her photos are just an inspiration. When I started blogging first I felt bad that one of my favourite bloggers wasn’t an Irish one, I felt at times I should have been following more Irish bloggers and sharing the love but I just couldn’t find many that I enjoyed and even now most of my favourite blogs and Instagram accounts are based outside of Ireland but sshhhh don’t tell anyone.

So this break I am talking about is a break from the usual, a break to try something different, an excuse to take different photos than you would normally and an excuse to have fun for a month. So I will be back to posting daily but just a lot more photos for the month, maybe some days I will have a chat, maybe it will be just a picture of what ever that days prompt is or maybe it will be ten photos. I am really looking forward to this because I loved the month I blogged everyday and I am missing it a little which is why I am so looking forward to this.

If you would like to join in then Susannah has a prompt for everyday on her blog for us all to follow and share, here they are.

The hashtag is #augustbreak2017 so everyone taking part can see your photos and there is also a Facebook page but all details are on her blog so go have a look.

So tomorrow is the first day and its all about the morning, I will be sharing mine on my Instagram so come have a look and will be sharing on my stories as well.

See you all in the morning.
