Historical Fiction is a genre I am very enamored with, so naturally reviewing this book, The Silent Chapter: A Heartwarming and Heartbreaking Love Story in Twentieth-Century Britain, was an easy decision to make. The title in itself grabbed my attention; 20th century Britain you say? Yes, please!
Another delayed book post, but here is my November 2022 in books. It was a wild start being in the UK and driving around, and then having a flurry of photography work, finding time to read the books on my TBR has been a time in itself. My most anticipated read of the year, BabelContinue reading “My November 2022 In Books”
A challenge for all outside photographers: Photography in the rain.
This one is a little late… but between travel, work, and new business ventures, the blog has kind of been put on the back burner. However, it is better late than never and I have read some fantastic books these last couple of months. In my attempts to read more than historical fiction and romanceContinue reading “My October 2022 In Books”
CSO photography or showjumping to my anglophone friends is one of my favourite sports to watch and capture. It is only second to dressage, which you can find some examples of here in my last event post! A small peak into my day out with the team in Gavray, Manche. For another competition, but thisContinue reading “CSO Photography Gavray”
Presets are hot rn.
Photography from my day out with the team at CSO Centre Equestre du Val de Sienne. A good day all around, fine weather, happy horses, and two first places. Starting early in the morning, the light change from sunrise to sunny day was wonderful. Autumnal show jumping competitions are always a gamble for the weather.Continue reading “CSO Centre Equestre du Val de Sienne”
Normandie Dressage holds events across Normandy, most notably at the Haras Nationaux in Saint Lô. Every year I go along to finals week to see amateurs and professionals alike compete. “𝘙𝘪𝘥𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘢 𝘩𝘰𝘳𝘴𝘦 𝘪𝘴 𝘯𝘰𝘵 𝘢 𝘨𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘭𝘦 𝘩𝘰𝘣𝘣𝘺, 𝘵𝘰 𝘣𝘦 𝘱𝘪𝘤𝘬𝘦𝘥 𝘶𝘱 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘭𝘢𝘪𝘥 𝘥𝘰𝘸𝘯 𝘭𝘪𝘬𝘦 𝘢 𝘨𝘢𝘮𝘦 𝘰𝘧 𝘴𝘰𝘭𝘪𝘵𝘢𝘪𝘳𝘦.

It’s time for a photo challenge…
My taste in books changes with the seasons. I admit last autumn/winter I read far too many murder mystery and thriller books that I could probably write my own! Anyway seeing as my post on the top ten equestrian books proved popular, I decided to go ahead and give you another list of ten books,Continue reading “Cosy Mystery Series Perfect For Fall”
This year has been a year of snapshots and I am so happy there has been such a variety so far. To change it up yet again, this post showcases photos from my last concert and visit at Le Manoir de la Guérinière. Le Manoir de la Guérinière Based in Passais Villages of the OrneContinue reading “Le Manoir de la Guérinière”
Check out my last snapshot post here of Equestrian Vaulting! I love equine photography, it is the main reason I started this blog way back in 2016, so sharing little Equestrian photography snippets is a little nostalgic to when the blog was horseandsport! Had a very short little shoot with these two after a displayContinue reading “Equestrian Portrait Photoshoot”
Coffee, check, comfy sweater, check, and a good book?
I’ve always wanted to do more fun blog challenges – this time make it photography based!
The Equinox has passed, and the weather is returning to its temperamental state of clouds, rain, sunshine, and gusts of bracing winds. Autumn has really made itself at home now that September is turning into October. Where did the time go?
My Ambitious TBR pile for September 2022 In Books has been particularly ignored until the last couple of weeks I have to be honest with you. After having a mega book hangover from the last Good Girl’s Guide to Murder, it has been a month of starting books and not getting into them easily. SoContinue reading “My September 2022 In Books”
