la sardina camera, photography 
As a photography lover I'm so excited to bring this giveaway to you today. I'm a little obsessed with vintage camera's and the different effects they can produce. We were recently given a La Sardina from Lomography and I'm trying not to go crazy on using up the film but at the same time can't wait to see how they come out!

These are some examples from the Lomography site on how your pictures from a La Sardina can turn out.


For a chance to win just enter any/all of the below and good luck!

Emails will be added to the Tigerlilly Quinn and the Lomography newsletter of which you can opt out of at anytime. Open to worldwide entries.

The other day Tom came home with a vintage bike for me. I haven't had a bike since I was a child and the holiday we took a few months back was the first time I'd ridden one in a good 15 years. I'd forgotten what a lovely freeing feeling cycling is and it made us talk about getting bikes each so that we take family bike rides on the weekends. With Wilf in a child's seat of course (not sure Tom could deal with dragging a trailer around like we did at Bluestone, although he said it was a pretty good workout!).

a little indoor picnic


In Tom's work every Bank Holiday weekend they get given an extra day holiday. I can't remember the reasoning for it but I'm always pretty pleased whenever they come around because a, I've usually forgotten it's a bank holiday and b, it's an extra day of shared parenting!

Last bank holiday Wilf was actually in nursery so Tom and I got the day to ourselves. I had a bit of work to do and Tom managed to get a few bits done around the house and then as the weather wasn't all that great we decided to have an indoor picnic. The last time we'd had a picnic indoors was when Tom and I were in our flat, the first place we lived together before we got the house and settled down a bit. I had come home from work to find a vintage hamper he had picked up that day, a super cute dress and lots of cakes. It was so sweet, I wish I had been blogging at the time so I would have had a picture of it.


Anyways we decided to take a break from the day and have a little indoor picnic. Tom came home with macarons the day before and it's really making me excited for our honeymoon later next month (!). It was nice to have an hour or so to chat about our upcoming wedding and break away. It will be the first time we'll be without Wilf and is quite exciting to think about spending so much couple time together alone. We have a few trips planned, I'm really excited about the vintage markets and eating out in the evening.

Here's to more couple time!

We were sent a little hamper from Lindemans with the cute blanket and some bottles of wine, thanks guys.
