Hello 2013, Hello Canon 600D

1/14/2013 08:26:00 PM


Beside those who follow me on twitter & instagram who saw my tweets filled with excitement would know that my wonderful Husband bought me a Canon 600D as a gift in December. The poor guy had to hear my constant nagging for almost year about how much I wanted the 600D and he finally thought 'Hey, let me shut this woman up already and just buy the damn camera'! (He didn't really think that, or maybe he did? :)) Being the great guy he is, he bought it for me and it's been our new toy ever since.
I've always loved the crisp photo's a DSLR produces, and I just think for fashion & beauty blogging, it's a great investment for a sleeker looking blog.

Thought I'd share some test shots, holiday photo's & new goodies taken with my 600D. Still getting the hang of it, but everyday I learn something new and there's so much more to learn. Any tips are welcome!
I can't wait to take a million photo's of Baby once he's born! :)

I had a "mini-break" from work for two weeks in December and it was so relaxing. And while, I didn't go away, Hubby and I decided to be tourists in our beautiful city and we had a blast! With baby being two months away, how quickly has time gone, I think we needed to just go out and enjoy ourselves as a couple. And we sure did.

Besides enjoying my holiday and not really making time, I know I've neglected my blog... And honestly, blogging has taken a back seat in my life right now and I can't promise regular updates. My priorities have definitely changed. While I will probably never be able to give up my love of fashion & make up, with a Baby on the way, those things don't seem as important as they used to.

I am going to try and blog more, I have some outfit photo's and a stunning pair of shoes that deserve their own post, so look out for that. Should also do a instagram post! Plus, the graphic designer in me wants to a new blog look so I might be doing that in the next few weeks when I find the time to actually sit down & do it.

Till then...

  1. Laiqah, fear not. A number of things are more important than blogging. No way I'd ever forget this wonderful blog of yours or your very nice personality. I wish you the absolute best in your pregnancy as well as in various other aspects of life important to you. As for the new camera, these are some very nice pictures you've taken with this camera!

    Once again- I wish you all the best in your pregnancy. Make the most out of 2013, Laiqah!
