I'm excited because it's smaller than my iPad, so it's easier to carry around. This excites me because now I can blog on the go!
One of the best new features is the camera. It's amazing! I took this picture of my dog, Precious, and uploaded it to Instagram. It's a social media platform built for sharing pictures. You can connect it right to your Twitter and Facebook profiles.

This isn't the first time she's covered a Jay Z song. She did her own rendition of Big Pimpin a few times while on her California Dreams Tour...(I wasn't a big fan)
Personally, I really like this cover of Ni**as in Paris. At the beginning, I get a "female-Shady" feel.
What do you think? Hot or not?
The Chester Upland School District in Delaware County, Pennsylvania suffered a serious setback when Gov. Tom Corbett (R) slashed $900 million in education funds from the state budget. The cuts landed hardest on poorer districts, and Chester Upland, which predominantly serves African-American children and relies on state aid for nearly 70 percent of its funding, expects to fall short this school year by $19 million.
So when I came across this new designer, my interest was peaked immediately! He's 10-year old Moziah Bridges and he has more fashion sense than most of the grown men I know! Check out THIS POST about him, and while you're there - cop some of these fab bow ties! And send me one while you're at it!

I've been suffering from some pretty severe tension headaches and migraines. To the point where it hurt to even just blink, let alone stare at a computer screen for hours. I've even missed work the past few days.
I thought that maybe one of the reasons for the headaches was my eye sight. I noticed that after looking at the computer screen, or reading for an extended period of time, my eye sight would get a little blurred. So, I decided to go into the optometrist and get my eyes checked.
Well, turns out my vision is perfectly fine. However, my eyes strain easily and need a little assistance when I'm reading, working on the computer, or just focusing on anything up close for more than 10 minutes.
What's the solution you ask? Well, two things. Eye exercises, as well as glasses. Luckily, I feel like glasses actually suit me so I was excited when she told me this!
I had already thought about what style I would want, retro-ish, with brown colouring. I figured the size, shape and colour suit my facial shape and skin tone.
I walked into the store and instantly fell in love with these frames. Aren't they gorgeous? I mean, they're Chanel, how can they not be beautiful? I tried them on and fell deeper in love! I can not wait to pick them up tomorrow!
Glasses can be so cute and stylish, aDORKable even! *wink*

Today's challenge was to post a picture of something you wore. My first intention was to take a picture of my legs, because I wore semi-sheer black pantyhose...but every time I took a picture it came out making me look like an alien.
So I settled on my cute earrings, what do you think?

I was searching the good old world wide web for some new, fresh hairstyling tips and came across this video for a French Braid Side Bun. It's simple, yet can be made to look a bit elegant.
The tutorial in the video is easy enough to follow that I might actually try it! I love the finished look. Loose, romantic and fun!
Check it out below!
Another great website for beauty tips is The Beauty Department. They have a tutorial for an Elaborate Braid Bun that would take a bit more work than the video above; but not by much! I think it would be great for a date night, or a night out on the town!
What do you think? Do you have any hairstyling tips? Any favourite online tutorials of your own?
The things you can capture, the angles, the lighting....I love it all.
I am planning on getting more into photography, and shaing my adventures with all of you!
This is the camera I am saving my pennies for. The Canon EOS Rebel T3i . It's the perfect entry level DSLR camera for beginners looking to go pro.
I came across this website that gives a few simple, easy tips to help improve your photography. There are some great tips and examples, check it out!
