Twenty Two

So I turned 22 years old yesterday. Not that it really means anything because I still look like I’m 16 lol

Thanks to my boyfriend, I actually had a pretty dope birthday. I woke up with my boyfriend wishing me a happy birthday again, I went to go see my parents in the early afternoon and they took me out for lunch and dessert, then I went home for a bit to see my cute boyfriend and kiss his face, but he was out grocery shopping cause he was going to be cooking dinner for us. (How romantic) He basically told me that I couldn’t be home from like 6-7 so he gave me $100 of guilt free money to spent on anything I wanted at Sephora lol

I went to the mall and got some stuff I’ve been running out of and also some things I’ve been wanting to try but too lazy to go buy it myself.

I ended up getting a new glow kit from Anastasia Beverly Hills. I got my palette in ‘Sun Dipped’, which comes with bronzed, summer, tourmaline, and moonstone and they’re all gorgeous as fuck!

I bought a new Sephora eyebrow brush. It’s just a normal angled eyebrow brush so I didn’t feel like taking a photo of it lol

I got a pair of Huda lashes in Samantha #7. They’re really long and pretty and more importantly, they’re wispy as fuck. I don’t normally like false lashes since I have eyelash extensions, but recently I’ve been letting my extensions naturally fall out so I can get a new set completely. So in the meantime, if I’m wearing false lashes I want the good shit.

And lastly I picked up the Benefit They’re Real mascara to try it out. I’ve been wanting to try this mascara out for a while now but I haven’t gone to buy it until now. I got the small travel size one because I only put mascara on my bottom lashes so I felt like if I bought the regular sized tube it would have just been a waste. It’s so cute and small and I think it’ll be perfect for my bottom lashes.

My boyfriend said that I had to spend the whole $100 guilt free but I only spent $88 at Sephora. I couldn’t find something I wanted to use the rest of the $12 on cause the other things I wanted were like $50.(I actually ended up using that left over money on gas today)

I came home at 7 like my boyfriend said to and he came out to greet me at my car with a little crown and a happy birthday balloon(: He ended up not making dinner, but throwing a little surprise party instead with our friends. I didn’t know he was going to be surprising me with a party but then people starting popping out of bathrooms and closets lol

And the rest of the night consisted of getting drunk, playing beer pong and Cards Against Humanity, and weird conversations. It was an awesome surprise and a great night with great people. Thanks to my boyfriend for putting that together last minute(:

Canon Upgrade

Hey guys! So today I just wanted to share something super exciting with you all! Last week I sold my Canon T3i camera to my friend. I was sad to see it go, but was also glad that it was going to someone who I think will use it a lot and have fun with it. I only sold it because I was ready to buy myself a new camera, and of course, I wanted to sell my old one before I go ahead and buy a brand new one.

I already had my eye on a major upgraded version of my T3i, and did all my research on it before deciding that was the one I wanted to purchase next. I looked up the prices online to see how much they go for and basically every place was selling it for the same price of $1,049. I saw that my nearest Fry’s Electronics store was selling them, so I decided to go in and check it out and make sure they actually have it in store, which they did, but they only had one. Which didn’t concern me at all, cause I didn’t think anyone other than myself would randomly come in within the next week and drop over $1,000 on a new camera.

After selling my T3i for $500, I was cameraless for about a week, then I went back into Fry’s to go buy my new camera. I went with the Canon T6s, and I’ve only had it for 3 days now and I am already absolutely LOVING it so much! It is such a major major upgrade from my T3i. The first photo and first video I took with my T6s, I could tell the difference in quality right away. The images were definitely more clearer and sharper than the T3i.

The day after I had bought it, my family and I went on a little roadtrip for the day to the Calico ghost town in California, and I was able to get some cool photos there, which I will probably make a separate post about after this; and I also filmed a lot with this camera while I was there, so I might be using that footage to make a YouTube video for my channel and I’ll show you guys around or something.

And just yesterday, I did a cool little photo shoot for my friend Timmy as he cosplayed one of his favorite characters. And I’m so happy with the finished product, the images came out amazing! Which, again, I’ll probably showcase some of those photos later on. But they came out pretty sick!

And here’s what the camera looks like(:

But yeah, I’m super excited to work on some new projects with this camera and go out to shoot more. Since I randomly decided to take a two week vacation again, I definitely have time to go out and get more shots, and I’ll be going back to LA again, so I DEFINITELY have time get out and shoot some stuff.

Anyways, I hope everybody has a great day and thank you for stopping by my blog! ❀


Instax Mini 8

Hello! And welcome back to my blog(: Today I’m going to give an overview and talk about my new instant camera.

Back in December, my boyfriend bought me an Instax Mini 8 camera from Fujifilm. First, I want to say that I absolutely love this little camera. I think it’s so fun to bring around and make memories with and I’m very happy that I’m a proud owner of one.

I got my Instax Mini 8 camera in black and also got two 20 packs of film with it, which gives me a total of 40 instant exposures.

It was a total of $120 for everything after shipping. He got the camera for $80 and each pack of film for $15. Both products were a little more expensive than usual because I got them in December, so Christmas was coming up. I also got everything from my favorite online photo and video store bhphotovideo.com, and I would recommend that site to everyone for all your photo and video needs.

An Instax camera is an instant camera, meaning when you press the shutter release button, it automatically shoots out a little physical copy for you to have. Which is super cute and convenient in my opinion. They’re fun to keep and save for your own memories or to give away to friends.

It’s a very VERY simple camera to use. As long as you’re not stupid, you can pretty much figure out how it works and how to use it.

But here’s a simple overview of this camera.

— — —

Functions on the camera:

The front of the camera includes the button on the side of the lens, which shoots the lens out and turns on the camera; the shutter release button, and also a dial which will automatically light up and indicate which setting it recommends you be on based on the lighting available. The dial settings include indoors, cloudy, sunny, really sunny, and hi key. And all you do is twist the dial to the appropriate setting.

The back of the camera is where the film loads and tells you how many exposures you have left in a little bubble towards the bottom, along with a little side hatch for the batteries and a little slot on the top where the photos will come out from.

— — —

How to load film:

The film comes in little cartridges, that you simply place in the opening in the back of the camera once you open the hatch. It has a little yellow line on the inside of the camera and also on the cartridge, and you just line it up and place the cartridge in the camera then shut the hatch. I’m unable to show a photo of this because I currently have a cartridge in my camera and opening the hatch would expose the film, thus ruining all of them. But it’s really easy to figure out how to put the film in. It’s just something you learn when you actually have the camera.

You’ll want to turn the camera on and press the shutter release button once. This won’t use any real film, but it will take the film cover off for you and it will come out from the top of the camera.

After that you can use your camera normally and have fun shooting.

As far as quality goes, you can’t expect to get a super clear photo or the best quality since it is an instant camera. It’s the simplest form of a point and shoot camera and anyone who has owned an original instant camera, such as a Polaroid, knows what kind of quality you should be expecting.

These are some photos that I have taken with my Instax Mini 8 camera. Obviously the quality of the photos below aren’t going to be the best since they are physical copies and all I can do is take photos of them. But they look better in person, trust me.

— — —

Even though I do own a professional DSLR camera and love going out to photograph with it, I absolutely love my instant camera just as much.

My DSLR is more for real photography, obviously. For my landscape and nature shoots, or to blow up and make prints with, while my Instax is more for little in the moment memories with friends, not so much for real quality photos. They just have different uses.

Overall, I think this camera is great! It’s really cute and fun to use and to bring to parties or on little adventures. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is wanting to get one.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!(:
