Olympus AF-10 Red 35mm Vintage Camera (1987)

I was hoping this was going to be a review of awesomeness! The latest in a long line of my many obsessions is vintage 35mm film cameras. I’ve been scouring ebay, market stalls and charity shops for the past few weeks, as well as watching youtube videos on the world of analogue photography in 2018. It’s been really fun!

One of my latest finds, got me super excited. I picked up this Olympus AF-10 on ebay for not too much money, but unlike the vast majority of them out there, this one was red!

Fragrance Review - Diesel Bad Intense

The vast majority of the fragrances I own are all ones I’ve bought myself, however, this bottle of Diesel Bad Intense was sent to me in the middle of last year, long before I knew anything about what I liked or didn’t like, or even what notes were.

This is a 2017 launch, and is a flanker to the 2016 release of Diesel Bad. It’s advertised as a ‘spicy oriental fougère’ that ‘exudes tough virility’, which is definitely a departure from most recent releases that focus on aromatic freshness.

Carnivore Diet - Week Nine

I started week 9 of my carnivore diet experiment with a trip to the butcher. I got myself a big slab of ribeye and for the second time, 3 slices of calves liver. Liver is still not my favourite, but it’s so healthy I’m gonna hopefully get used to it. Would help if I could work out how to present it in a more attractive way haha!

So steak and liver for dinner was my first meal of what would turn out to be an interesting week for this diet.

Last year, before I had my surgery, I started getting into philosophy, and it really helped me with my recovery, and has continued to help me with my general mindset going forward.

Toshiba PDR-M60 Review (2000)

The Toshiba PDR-M60 was my first ever digital camera. Up until this point I was shooting everything on my Minolta Vectis S-1 APS SLR, or using disposable cameras on nights out. One of my art college flat mates had a Sony digital camera that took a floppy disk as media storage, and as my course was requiring more and more images in digital format, it made sense to shoot them that way instead of going through the annoyance of film processing and scanning.
