Camera, ACTION

I really need to get myself a decent camera. It is hard to blog without being able to share images of ur ideas especially when i love all those brilliant images on the other blogs I follow. Any ideas on decently priced models that would be ideal for blogging?
 I would love to start out with a Canon EOS 1000D

or to be more realistic I think I should start off with a compact like a
 and work my way up.

I wonder if any bloggers have any specific models they've found particularly useful.

the Story

I'm typing this post while my gold nail polish is still drying so please excuse any spelling mistakes I might make. This is not as simple as it looks because meanwhile I'm resisting this URGE to scratch my hair.

I've recently rediscovered the song the story by Brandi Carlile [courtesy of a tv ad] and it feels quit right as I prepare to close, an albeit small, chapter of my life and start a new one.
I hope you you find some inspiration in the tit bits I share with you here.
The power of imagination makes us infinite.

I BEG YOU Laban Erapu

   I beg you,
If you feel something like love for me,
Not to let me know it now
When I feel nothing so certain for you-
Wait until you've conquered my pride
By pretending not to care for me.

   I beg you
If you think your eyes will give you away,
Not to give me that longing look
When you know it'll force the moment-
Wait until our heartbeats have settled
Then put your head on my shoulder.

   I beg you
Not to let us surrender to passion
Until our liking has grown to love:
Let's stop and look back,
Let's draw apart and sigh,
Let's say goodbye for the day
And walk our different ways
Without pausing to wait
For an echo to our last word.

   I beg you,
If you find yourself interlocked
In my embrace,
To kiss me and keep me silent 
Before I start making promises
That time may choose to bypass-
Wait until our hands are free,
Then listen to me;
Wait until our love is primed,
Then give me your hand

Cry With the Saints

They say there's a heaven for those who will wait

Some say it's better but I say it ain't

I'd rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints
the sinners are much more fun...

I recently came across the song Only The Good Die Young by Billy Joel [via an episode of glee] and although it does sound blasphemous, for those pious people, I felt just a tad inspired to LIVE MORE.
Hence here's a list of a couple of things people don't know about me.

  1. I love to read because its a form of escape from my otherwise mundane life. I lose myself in the characters and actually live through them.
  2. I fold the bottom of my jeans till just above my ankles because I'm very short and petite and I read somewhere that it makes you look taller.
  3. I wish I had a little more flesh on my bones
  4. I wish my skin was as dark as my sister's so my acne scars wouldn't show so much
  5. I'm never satisfied with what I have because yes, I do believe contentment kills creativity and someone once told me never to lower any expectations. Once you start, all the others follow.
  6. I have GREAT EXPECTATIONS. Some might call them delusions of grandeur.
What don't people know about you?

    The Sartorialist

    Lately I've noticed my growing interest in [mostly] fashion blogs and that's how I came across The Sartoriaist. It has become a regular dose of inspiration for me who's still a little timid about expressing myself through what i wear. And yes, I actually had to look up the meaning of that word before I had the aha! moment.


    sartorialism (uncountable)
    1. an interest in matters of or relating to the tailoring of clothing.
