|My new camera has a ‘soft focus’ feature|
Yikes, only 3 hours away!! I know I tend to post sporadically, but it went to posting nil after my beloved Sony DSC-T200 camera died 😦 I couldn’t take pictures AND I had no idea what to talk about.
My birthday is tomorrow, and I’d been contemplating a beginner’s DSLR anyway, so I bought myself a new camera as an early birthday present and replacement for mine (though I will probably pick up another point-and-shoot since they are more portable, and I am lazy). I picked up an Olympus PEN E-PL1 but I am still mostly using the auto settings… definitely need to find a good beginner’s guide to DSLR cameras (suggestions welcome).
In any case, to prove I am alive (and hopefully to kick my butt into posting more), my latest mook purchases (I say ‘latest’ but one is really old, and the other two were posted about weeks ago by other people.
|Agnes B Bag + Mook|
|Mary Quant MOOK + Bag|
I love love love this tote. Probably my favourite out of all three gifts in this post. I initially heard about Mary Quant from my dear Old Cow, and while I haven’t been able to try any of it, I thought this mook could give an idea about the line… plus the tote is super cute! I love all the makeup products, and the colours. This is a good size also – a bit bigger than the Agnes B tote. It also came with a MQ charm, but I have already misplaced it >__<
|Jill Stuart WE LOVE JILL! MOOK + Makeup Bag|
Probably the mook I’ve heard talked most about since it came out. I found out about it on Rouge Deluxe and then from my dear Bittenbefore… luckily it was still available on YesAsia since it sold out so fast in Tokyo! I actually think I like the fabric of this bag more, and I am excited for all the pockets – I kind of want to do a test-trial of packing makeup for a trip to see how much I can fit in here. Yes, I need more hobbies in life.
These are the few snaps I’ve taken since I got the camera… I can already see a big difference between the quality of these pics and my point-and-shoot and I am excited to learn more about them!
Next up – my makeup ‘rut’ this summer (neutral eyes, liner, bright lips) and haha, a glimpse of my Dior collection 😉
