June 2017’s My Purrfect Gift Box

I’m a cat fanatic. I’ve loved cats all my life and honestly never thought I’d have any due to my mother being so against them in the past. That all changed three years ago when we got Pepper – the black cat you see in the featured image of this post. Now we have two, and we wouldn’t change them for the world.

The only other thing I love almost as much as my small demon children is the feeling of getting something in the post, which is why monthly boxes are a cute little thing to look forward to. There are so many different markets for boxes it seems silly that I didn’t think ones would exist for cats/cat lovers at first. My Purrfect Gift Box is tailored specifically for the cat person, with the option to pay a little more for some gifts for your feline friend too. Today we’re going to see what was in the box for June 2017!

Photography Post | Flowers & Bees

Anyone who follows me elsewhere on the internet should know, to some extent, that I enjoy photography. I bought my first camera – a Canon EOS 600D SLR – during my time in the Creative Technologies foundation degree a good few years ago. The faculty had messed up their order for gear before the course started, which left only two working cameras for a class of 20+ to use for coursework.

I didn’t want the stress of fighting everyone else over the cameras when it was time to start my own coursework, so I used my loan money to get one of my own. It was expensive and I don’t use it as often as I’d like because it’s quite heavy and carrying it around can drain a person like me real fast, but it was one of the best purchases I’ve ever made.

I usually use my iPhone due to the increased flexibility and because it’s much lighter to carry around, but the photos in today’s post were taken on my SLR to experiment around with a close up macro lens I bought a few weeks ago.Β The bee in the featured image is probably my favourite photo I’ve taken this year so far.
