LIFE LATELY #6

 WEARING  Puma Fenty faux fur slides after having them boxed and confined in tags since August. I don't know why it took me so long so embrace them. And now I'm praying that any dreaded heat will remain at bay a while longer, just so I can enjoy wearing these for a few weeks more. Because I honestly can't envision slipping these on during an intense Australian summer.

 USING  3ina nail polishes. I don't know what it is about this brand but I am irrevocably drawn to it. The store layout is nothing revolutionary and yet feels avant-guard to me. The colours are plentiful and dynamic and ranges available are comprehensive. I've been smitten with their nail polishes not just for looks but for durability (with their gel-like top coat that is).

 LOVING  this gifted mirrored rose gold phone case from Light In The Box. I can't tell you how many compliments I've received with this bad boy, I've even been stopped in the middle of a store about it. While it's undeniably charming. it's also rather resilient. I know this from an unfortunate incident or two. Best of all I adore the mirrored surface, which comes in handy at the best of times. Overall for being well under $10 this is such a steal. Check it out here for more colours and size options.

 OBSESSED  my new Canon toy. Impetuously I decided to invest in the EOS M3 after reading a few positive reviews online. I was originally in the market for something mirrorless and lightweight (while I "save" up for a 5D) but hadn't done much, if any, research on models period. I may have regretted such vagary at first but I've been overly pleased with this impulse buy as it has been such a treat to play with. Quality wise it's been an obvious step up from my iPhone camera as you'll probably note in a previous post (here). I've been rather taken with the images it produces and the copious functions available. I only wished I had pulled the trigger sooner.

 LISTENING  to Revolution Radio by Green Day. These guys are always so damn consistent with their sound and always know how to make me feel like I'm nineteen again.

 WATCHING  K Dramas. I probably should have placed this in the obsessed section because I am very much infatuated. Its become a nightly habit these days and a nice break from the mundane. I've really taken to what I sometimes perceive to be overly corny storylines and wacky sense of humour. I've also become quite the "expert" in anticipating these storylines. Rowena from Rolala Loves once mentioned how formulaic these shows tend become and boy was she right. There's always some kind of catastrophic car crash or bizarre u-turn scene scripted once or twice into the plot. But I think that's one of the reasons why I adore them. Currently I'm watching Shopaholic Louis which has been increasingly humorous; most involving incidents with vehicles. 

 HOPING  for a white Christmas but obviously, when pigs fly.

  2. Your new camera looks and sounds totally fabulous! It's great when an impulse buy works out well. Glad to hear that you're still enjoying K-dramas so much. They really can be seriously obsessive. Haha I love that you're picking up on the common plot devices they always employ. It can be fun when they find a way to put a fresh spin on them.

    1. They are addictive. And re 3ina I'm not so sure I think they're predominantly European based xx

  9. ohh I really love everything you've mentioned! And that background is so freakin' stunning! Also, I'm not sure if I'm correct, but I think I've heard someone say that the brand 3ina is actually Mina :D I may be completely wrong :D x

  13. I love your rose gold phone case, I'm not surprised you have received a lot of compliments on it :) Your new camera sounds fab too and I love it when an impulse buy works out. I'm terrible at doing my research before buying things so know the relief when a risky purchase turns out to be worthwhile! x

  15. That camera looks gorgeous! Getting a new camera feels like Christmas came early. I always loving finding out the different functions, options, playing with different angles, testing out the settings. It's seriously the best :)
    Hope you'll have a lot of fun with your new camera as well! :)

  16. Great choice on the Puma Fente faux fur slides - better late than never getting them out of their box, right!? How exciting you've picked up a new Canon by the way; you can definitely see the improvement with regard to photo quality :)

  17. Haha I want a white Christmas as well! But I am stuck in Arizona. So I know those feels... I definitely want to buy a new camera sometime next year, but I also need a new laptop so bad! I will have to check this one out. It sounds really nice. I have been binge watching the first season of Westworld. You might really like it! It's definitely hard to predict and it causes you to think and question what is real. It's very philosophical. Check it out! :)

    1. Ahhh you're in the same situation as me! It feels so weird to have someone on the other side of the world experience this kind of Christmas too. BTW I do watch Westworld! It did take me a while to get into it but now that the season is wrapping up I'm totally engrossed xx
