I like to take photos of things. Mostly peoples. Mostly pretty peoples, if I'm honest. But sometimes toys, or dogs, or maybe a tree. Y'know, interesting stuff.
I shoot a few burlesque shows, but that's just to kill time between photoshoots with models, where I can control the light and the pose and the magic.
My photos will have the tag "my photo". Otherwise, it's stolen from the vast wilderness that is the internet. I usually source pics from Model Mayhem, Flickr or We <3 it.
You wanna look me up elsewhere?
At first I was like
But then I remembered
And then I was all

Few tips that might help if you haven’t tried them: Go off peak Use skyskanner to look for the best flight deals Try booking everything seperately to get the best deal I always use booking.com for hotels.
Tiptop, cheers Miche.
I’ve made a Pinterest folder of all these supposed “cheapest flights on the web” sites and that sorta thing. One had life hacks along the lines of “book exactly 12 weeks before departure for optimum prices”. Supposedly booking 5 months before the date is the worst…which is kinda where we’re at just now haha.
But using Skyscanner, we’re now looking at about £1700 before spending cash. So, the lower end of the £2grand bracket, which is heading in the right direction.

i would so fucking send you money if i wasn’t 18 it’s actually ridiculous i know like this doesn’t count for anything but yeah like you actually really deserve this holy shit
A haha you are just the cutest.
Like, I know that holidays are a total luxury, and I’m not “owed” one, but I mean, come on….I’ve gone near half my life with only two jaunts to the sunshine. And Scotland is very very cold most of the time. Or, if not cold, it’s at least fucking raining.
I just want a break from the weather more than anything hahah
6 months on, and Katie and I still haven’t got a plan for our honeymoon.
We had originally thought Disney in Florida, because neither of us have been to America, and we’d take Sophie a few it would be great.
That was the plan we went into the wedding with. But it’s not going to happen. It’s just way expensive.
So we scaled the plan back. What about Euro Disney we thought!
Getting the eurostar from London to Disney is possible easy and not to expensive. But we don’t live in London. About a third of the cost of it all would just be getting from Scotland to the Eurostar terminal.
So… Fly direct to CdG airport and just get a bus to the park? Somehow, just as expensive.
All in, we’re looking at £2-3 thousand for 3 nights. Which is money we really, really don’t have.
In the 12 or so years that Katie and I have been together, we’ve been abroad once, and that was back in 2005. Prior to that, I hadn’t been on holiday for at least 5 years. I know that holidays and going abroad isn’t a right or anything, but it’s nice to just get away every once in a while.
So, we thought that a honeymoon would be the perfect excuse to just make it happen.
Maybe I should try and make friends with some French folk, who just happen to live near Disney Land Paris, who would let us all stay with them for free. Bonus if they also want to pay for our travel there and back.
Or can I Kickstart a honeymoon? Or does anyone want to Paypal me funds? Should I stand out in the street with a “charity” tin and try and raise the money that way?
tl:dr: meh, money, meh.
Sailor Moon cosplay for tiny dogs.
BUT WHERE DO I GET THIS FOR MY CHIHUAHUA?!?!
There’s been loads of folk asking where this they can get this, and since no one seems to be answering, here’s the skinny:
You cannot buy this. The woman who made it has said that due to the copyright hell that is making an un-official product, they just aren’t going to do it:
People frequently ask me but for the moment these items are not for sale. I plan to sell some items in the future but I regret to say that due to copyright laws I can not sell any Salor Moon design costumes. Any items for sale in the future will be my own designs. And I don’t have any plan to release the mold and how to make it because it is so difficult for me to explain and show them. 😓I’m sorry. It has been hard replying to each and every person now that I am getting so many comments! But I read each comment carefully and get lots of power from them. Thank you so much guys!!♥️♥️😭 I plan on making more and more cute things, and take photos with the animals. All photos are taken with the greatest care for the animals health and stress level.😊
Robbi Robb - In Time
Our dreams will all come true, I promise you,
‘Cause I can see for miles and miles.
In time we’ll be dancing in the streets all night (all night, all night).
In time, yes, everything will be all right (all right, all right).
It’ll take time but we’re going far,
You and me, yes I know we are.
In time we’ll be dancing in the streets all night.
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah.
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah.
In time we’ll be dancing in the streets all night.
If this isn’t up there with the most beautiful songs you’ve ever heard, then you are wrong.Played 36 times.
Today the sun came out. So we took Soph a walk to the beach.
Wasn’t exactly warm, mind, but it was sunny.
We played in the sand, found pretty shells, then went to the playpark.
Soph bumped into one of her friends and they both had ice cream.
( Ayr beach looks like a desolate wasteland )
Took a selfie with Soph on my knee.
You’ll have to bear in mind that my camera is from the dark ages and doesn’t have any of that fancy live view or flip out video screen nonsense.
It’s purely a what you can see through the viewfinder kinda thing. It doesn’t even have a DOF preview.
For those who don’t speak camera, that’s me saying that I shot this hella blind.
But I like it. A lot.
I’ve gained a whole bunch of new followers recently, most likely because of the Sailor Moon dog cosplay thing, or my judicious use/abuse of the MUMBLR tag.
Whatever the reason, there’s more of you now than there was at the time when there were less of you. And some of you mightn’t know who I am.
So, hi! This is my face. Do you know how hard it is to take a selfie with an SLR? Or am I just doing it wrong? I found it very difficult.
That’s why it’s not exactly a flattering or amazing photo. But trust me when I say it was the best of the bunch.
So. Hi there. I’m Kitt. I’m married to my lovely wife Katie ( who doesn’t swim in the Tumblr waters, else I’d link you to her blog ) and we have a daughter called Sophie who is my everything.
I like to think I’m good at taking photos, but the truth is, it’s usually just that I have the most expensive camera in the room. You can’t buy skill. Clearly.
I play video games and I work in a computer shop. I like pink things and coffee and chocolate and energy drinks. I like toys, too. Gadgets and toys. And Columbo. And Film Noir. And burlesque. And I’m not religious.
How’s that for a mini introduction to those who are new? That about cover it?
Oh, I live in Scotland. That’s a thing that I do. Live, I mean. In the place.
Sorry, I’m starting to get a bit nervous with all this…it’s feeling a little interogatey. It’s not you…it’s me.
I’ll just shush now, yeah?
acuthberto replied to your post “acuthberto replied to your post “Last week,” Lovvvvely. Tablet is the…”
It sadly was on at the time. The power cable was a bit dodgy before and yeah no lights no nothing :(
No lights or anything, I would suspect that it is totally fucked.
Try the “battery out, plug in” thing. It sometimes works miracles.
But it could be that the motherboard is damaged, in which case, you’re cheaper just buying a new lappy, I’m afraid :(
Lovvvvely. Tablet is the shit. P.s. I dropped my laptop and now it won’t turn on. Advice?
Erk. Was it on at the time? If so, suspect the HDD.
If not, any visible cracks or breaks?
Exactly how is it not turning on? i.e. is it totally dead; no noise from fan, no lights to indicate the battery, nothing on the screen.
Or, screen “lights” up, but stays black?
Do you see a BIOS screen at all?
Is it Windows or Mac?
One thing to try, is to pop the battery out, and plug the charger in. See if it powers like that.
Also, if you’ve a separate monitor or TV with the right in/outputs, connect it up. That would indicate the screen/inverter is fuct.
a wee old woman dropped her laptop off for repair.
She’d phone ahead to see how much it would be, but since it was a REALLY simple thing, there wasn’t a charge for it.
So, she showed up with the lappy and gave us a bag of TABLET that she had made herself. It was delish! I ate most of it myself.
And that’s her just come in to pick the laptop back up, she’s dropped in an EVEN BIGGER BAG OF HOME MADE TABLET
om nom fucking nom.
Sophie made ham pizza for dinner last night.
It was quite yummy.
She also made garlic doughballs, which she loves, but I hate garlic.
And you would think that having been stuck indoors with Soph for a whole week while her chickenpox passed, I’d have been on the ball and had her make some craft things for Katie.
Well, that’s where you’re wrong. We did fuck all.
So, now it’s panic stations. Gotta make something suitable, that costs nothing, that Sophie can help make.
I’ve started a secret Pinterest board ( because Katie follows my Pinterest and because I’ve busted my monthly Evernote limit! GAH! ) and essentially I’ve got Wednesday afternoon or Saturday day to source and make something.
So far I’ve been thinking a fingerprint necklace made out of Milliput / Sculpy. Or a Polaroid necklace. Or an allium flower something ( that was our wedding flower ).
