I really want a camera of my own. We have a family camera, which everyone in my house is allowed to use but I want a camera to myself. So as my search for cameras has deepened its just making my decision even harder because there are so many cameras, so many brands, different styles, different looks and its proving very difficult to choose. During this quest for a camera, I have found some very cute ones which I will show you now, I would do more types of cameras but I would probably go on for hours..


These cameras are Diana F+, if you Google them you can find them anywhere. I saw these on lomography. com. They're mainly around £80/£90, but the gold one is £109.
These cameras are super cute and I love the colours of the second one and the fanciness of the gold one. They look fancy and according to reviews, they capture dreamy shots, a bit blurred and the lens is prone to light leaks, but the shots are all very artistic and look like an instagram filter has been put on them.
I think this camera is good if you just want arty, vintage shots, but I'm looking for sharper images. If I had the money I would get this and another more professional camera, but unfortunately I don't.
You also wouldn't be able to put the images off this camera on to your computer and the film costs a lot and once you have film you would need to find a developer somewhere which also costs. The shots you take you cant delete either, so if you take a bad one you cant delete it and retake it, you would just have to waste that bit of film.


The other day I mentioned to my mum about cameras and how I want something thats good quality and digital but also how a Polaroid camera seems so fun to use. She then mentioned the fact she used to have one, so we went on a little Polaroid hunt, and low and behooold we found her old Polaroid camera!
I love it. It's so fun to use and (obviously) you get the pictures straight away and, well, its pretty hard not to love. However with ours, the pictures seem like they have a sepia affect on them, we don't know why and we are going to try use it in different lighting, but I don't mind, I still love it.
It doesn't look very vintagey or old fashioned like the ones some people have, its not very attractive either but its very fabulous.  However, you have to use the film very sparingly, because it costs loads to buy now. Saying that, I just found some for £8, 10 shots which is quite a bit but considering last night me and my friends could only find 10 shots for £15, I'd say that's a bargain!!
Anyway, I love the Polaroid, but I wouldn't necessarily buy one, they are fun but they cost loads and plus the cost of tape its all too much. I highly recommend asking your parents about it though, because they might just have one! Or you could be extremely lucky like my friend and find one in a charity shop for only £4! Not only was it that cheap but its also a really pretty cream colour. I couldn't find many pictures of Polaroid cameras, even though there are probably loads but I found a really nice one off Urban Outfitters website, online exclusive. (£120 though!!) The blue one is ours, clearly..

I apologize I have no idea why its this way round...

If I Had Money,my wishlist

26 August 2013

I love this top. It is from Urban Outfitters, one of my favorite shops, but this generally means it will be quite highly priced, which for this little t shirt it is, at £30. Despite this though, I really like.
With a pair of boyfriend jeans it would be perfect, maybe with a gold chain necklace and a couple of rings, it would look great. Well, in my head I think it would, you need to see it in person probably.
Now summer is ending though, so if I were to get it, it wouldn't be worn much. It has more of a summer vibe then an autumn, then again I'm not usually one to dress by seasonal colour dress code. It's a really cute little top though, but it could be tricky to decide what bottoms to wear since its not long enough to tuck in, but too short to keep untucked. You would have to wear something that rests on your hips rather than waist.


This top is plain and simple with beads on the sleeves, which I think is cute, but because the t shirt is so plain I feel like you would need a long necklace, but would you be able to wear one with those beads on the sleeves? You'd have to be careful to make sure they don't clash. As well as this, washing it would be a nightmare, and if a bead fell off, the whole t shirt wouldn't look right.
Although it's really adorable, I feel like you could only wear it during a day where you have no accessories, and you couldn't wear a jacket because you wouldn't want to cover up the sleeves.
However, I do keep saying you couldn't wear a necklace with this, but it just depends what you have and picturing stuff in your head isn't always the best way to decide about clothes, you have to see them in person.

This I think would look nice again with high waisted or boyfriend/mom jeans. A chunky necklace would go nicely with it and it could be smartened up with a blazer and a clutch.
It is very formal though, but with a pair of black high waisted jeans and Doc Martens it could be made more casual. The only thing I'm not too sure about this top  is the black stripe on the sleeves, but other than that I really like it and think its very cute and could be either formal or casual.

I WANT BOYFRIEND JEANS OR MOM JEANS SO BADLY, but unfortunately I brought a pair a while ago but they're really weird and don't fit me properly, they hang low on my hips and just aren't proper boyfriend/mom jeans.
This is moto vintage wash mom jeans and I love them so much, you can wear anything with these jeans in my opinion and can be made more formal with a pair of black wedges or look casual with creepers. The left leg looks a bit funny here, but I think that may be just how the model is standing and the angle.
I don't care if I spend my last penny on these, I need a pair. It infuriates me how the holidays are ending and I still don't have a pair, but at least I can have a pair for weekends and next holidays. I honestly feel like you can't go wrong with these jeans, anything goes with them.
Then again I feel like they only suit people with the right figure and I don't know if I have the 'boyfriend jean figure' but I bloody well help I do because they are beautiful.

I love shirts. I have this weird thing in my brain which will attract me to any shirt I see, even if it's ugly. For example, I really like this shirt but I can't tell if the pattern is nice or not? I like the shape though, you can wear it with leggings and its long enough to cover your bum, you can wear it untucked with skinny jeans, or tucked it in with a pair of high waisted.
You can brighten up an outfit with a pair of colourful trainers, or keep it classy with a pair of black heels and a clutch.
I honestly can't tell if I like the pattern or not, but I clearly don't hate it, but I will buy any shirt that's in my presence because I love shirts so much. Hopefully I'll go shopping soon and can make up my mind and decide if I like it or not.
Its all very dull colours and I feel like the outfit would need a splash of colour somewhere, whether the colourful trainers, or some red lipstick.

Woah I did't mean to write this much! Thank you if you read it all and sorry if I rambled on a bit, I tend to do that.. a lot..
Anyway goodbye and I'll see you next! I'll try and upload at least once a week and may upload more in this week since it's still summer and school hasn't begun again.
