new hair for the new year

Whaaaaaat... I don't know what happened but this post is long overdue. About a month overdue, I might add. So yeah, I fianlly got a new haircut for the new year. It was a spur of the moment thing; we saw a salon and in we went. I've actually been looking for somebody who can give me this set of bangs but alas... Either I look too 80s or just plain ugh.

That is until I went to this particular salon on this particular day (which happens to be the day before the new year. heh.) So I went from this:

to this:

He chopped off a huge chunk of my hair and for that I am grateful.

I kind of look like Dora the Explorer but I love how short it is now. Good thing he (aka my favorite stylist since thist day) knows how to listen to his customers and knows what looks good and what doesn't. Even the boyfriend had his hair cut!

We shall be coming back to your salon good sir. Just as soon as I find your calling card again.....

All Hail the Queen (of Lomography)!!

I just realized that I forgot to blog about this and I've had this camera for a few months now. Eeep.. So alright, a little background...

For as long as I can remember, I have been praaaaying for this camera. It's one of the premium cameras of Lomography. So I spent my days just browsing through the LCA+ gallery  and sighing. Theeeen, I found this baby on eBay. The owner was selling it for half the price of the brand new one and it's slightly used (as in she used just 1-2 rolls with it). I was so excited!! The beau was wonderful, by the way. We paid for this 50-50. I can't wait to try it so I loaded 2 rolls in a week. 

What I saw just blew me away. I guess you can't really start to love something this awesome until you had a chance to use it. The 2 rolls were Solid Gold 200 and a Provia. Both gave unexpected results.

I love the "legit film" feel of the photographs, whether they're from a negative film or a slide film. I love that it's small enough to fit in your pocket. I love taking it with me on walks. I just absolutely love it!! She truly is THE queen. So glad to have the chance to own one of these gems.
