-6°C * Feels Like: -12 this winter I've been working on my immunity to cold a lot it seems...

I saw the sun setting, it gets me every time that darn sun. So I threw on some make-up and a hair clip and ran outside to take some pictures!

I need to catch up on a bunch of tags from these lovely humans: Gia Catalan, Andreandroid, under the radar, her morning song, Kiara ∞ and *Kayla has arrived*. You should definitely check out all their streams <3 I hope I didn't forget anyone who tagged me I'm sorry if I did!

1. Thing you cannot leave the house without? water

3. Favorite flower? I love peonies, but, if you know me at all I love just about every type of flower!
4. Favorite clothing stores? H&M, forever XXI
5. Favorite perfume? Vera Wang princess or this kind called Pink Sugar and Pink Sugar Sensual I don't even know what brand it is :\ haha
6. Heels or flats? I don't own that many shoes for being a girl, I love them equally though. I wish I had more places to wear heels.
7. Do you make good grades? I'm not in school, but I make good braids? That rhymes with grades...

19. Have you ever had a near death experience? no thank goodness

(10 facts)
I. I don't feel well a lot and it makes me anxious, but nothing is ever really "wrong" with me.
II. I need to trim my hair badly, my ends are split and dry ew!
III. I am really trying to get used to manually focusing when I do self-portraits because I am so mad at my autofocus! I always manually focus for other people but I always find it difficult to focus for selfs so...I'm practicing.
IV. I contemplated starting a 365 on January 1st, but I'm very on the fence about them. I feel they have many pros and cons, but I would like to start *something* organized and disciplined because I think that will make me feel more accomplished, I just don't know what yet.
V. I love you guys more than you know.
VI. I'm scared of too many things.
VII. I don't have a favourite photographer...I never know if that's 'bad' or not.
VIII. I really want spring to come, I like spring. I forget how much I like it until I've been through summer, fall, and winter... every year this happens. I really do like spring, but I don't think enough to call it my favourite.
IX. I am really self-conscious about how my images look on other people's monitors. I check how they look on two places to make sure they're satisfactory to me, but then I catch them on someone's screen that isn't mine and they look horrid. It worries me.
X. my computer may completely die any day now...if for some reason I drop off the face of the Earth, this shall be the reasoning :'(.
