Samsung Galaxy S4

So... I have swapped phones again! Well temporarily... As much as I loved my HTC One, I couldn't shake that the camera wasn't up to par for me to take photos of my client with. That sharpness just isn't there. Don't get me wrong, I actually loves every other factor of the HTC One better than the Samsung at the moment, especially in regards to the ease of use.

I've taken a few photos with my Samsung since I got it last week and to be honest, the camera is not that great. It has trouble focusing and I can only see a little bit of a difference in terms of the sharpness and because of that, I am very tempted to use my HTC again...

What do you guys think?

Dyeing (Pun intended!) for Lilac hair!

It has been at least a week or two now that I have been absolutely dreaming and dying for the lilac/pastel/lavender hair. Yes... I know I will look a bit like a unicorn but I am way overdue for a hair cut and while I'm at it... I just wanted to do something drastic! I've always wanted an ashy tone to my hair but I fear that it's impossible for my hair as no matter how many salons I've been to, it has never been achieved. Does anyone know of any good hair colourist in Perth who can help me?!?

Should I.... or shouldn't I.... That is the question.

My New Baby... Thanks to my baby.

So every year for my birthday I always get to pick out a present for my husband to get me because as he puts it, "He doesn't want to get me anything that I may not wear.", and this year was no different!

I knew I wanted a purse but I just didn't know what I wanted. Did I want a smaller bag as all my other bags are relatively big in nature or was I going to stick to my signature? I was looking around for a good few days and the 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli was actually one of the first bags I saw and liked. Not only did the leather look durable, it had 3 different sizes, it got glowing review from just about everyone!

It was a toss up betweena few different bags but I kept going back to this Pashli so I knew that this had to be the one. The next problem was, what size did I want it in? I really did love it in the mini size, I think it's beautiful and I'm definitely getting one sometime in the future but I wanted something that I could wear everyday. That meant going back to my normal enormous sized bags but then the large Pashli, well... It just looked too big and the hubby reassured me that it would look a bit ridiculous on my 5'1 frame, as I wanted to wear the bag across my body as well. So we ended up compromising and the medium sized Pashli looked perfect!

I actually wanted to get the bag from Net-a-porter but they had a limited selection in terms of the colours available so that's when I found Forward by Elyse Walker. Not only did they ship overseas, they offered FREE express shipping overseas which is pretty rare these days! They also had the colour that my hubby and I liked, which was handy. 

Skip forward a few days and my beautiful bag is here! So without further ado.... Here is the 3.1 Phillip Lim Medium Pashli in Feather!

Thank you to my lovely husband :) I love you honey!

So... HTC Camera

So... I totally figured out how to use my phone camera!! It's a little inconvenient but it actually does take some pretty nice photos.

The trick is to use the different settings, I mean... Well duh, I guess, but I never really bothered to play around or to keep changing the setting everytime I used my camera. I use macro and hdr and it just takes amazing photos!

I only have a few to show unfortunately as I've only learnt this literally, 2 hours ago but... Here we go!

And Here's July...

Wow... Just wow!

This year is honestly flying past me and I can't believe that we are halfway through July!

I was thinking of doing more posts and possibly start making videos but at the moment I'm still a little shy on the video part! I do have some spare time the next month or so, so I'm hoping to do a lot more posts.

I did get a new phone, the HTC One and am absolutely in love with it! Not too fond of the camera but you guys can judge for yourself :) To me, the colours look a little washed out.
Hope you girls (possibly guys ;)) are taking care of yourselves!!

April already??

Oh. My. Goodness.... Is it nearly April already!!!? This year has gone by soooo quickly, it's unbelievable and although its the start of the year, so many not so nice things have happened in my personal life, hence probably why I haven't updated for so long. It's been a very very stressful few months and unfortunately, the stress is still going. I just wanted to say a quick hello to everyone and that I hope everyone has had a great New Years!

To my dear Squishy and my sweet Foofie, you both may or may not read this but I don't know what I would've done without both of you during the last few months. I actually know that without you both, I wouldn't be here today. Thank you for the mass amount of love, courage, encouragement and the constant support that you both provide me. You are both irreplaceable. My 2 lifelines. I love you both more than words can say <3
