got my new phone!

no, it’s not the nokia n95 (can’t afford it at over $500!) but i settled on the lg shine because 1) it’s red, 2) it’s a slider, 3) it looks beautiful, 4) love the design, 5) feels solid and 6) it’s red (did i say that already?).

we went to the storytime arts and crafts class yesterday at the local library and i was able to test out the camera quality of this phone. all i can say is, not bad at all! below are some shots, straight out of the camera.

this is what i’m talking about!

i simply love this camera! it’s a total keeper! i have to play with it since i’m an amateur but it’s so much fun. low light pictures are awesome! i wish i have this one instead of the canon sd550 when jaelynn was born. i could have taken millions of pictures! i have only been playing with it at night…so i’m looking forward to shooting with it in the daytime even more. did i mention the battery lasts a long time? i must have gotton about 450 photos or so with one charge. and it keeps getting better. i have received about $50 back from amazon because of the camera and lens price drop.

little miss jaelynn in a still moment. pp in ps – made it greyscale

used virtual photographer because i set the color to MORE VIVID from the camera and boy, it was a real vivid red. this looks better.

these were taken without flash and while it’s not super sharp, i’m overly impressed. probably because i haven’t been able to do that with my other cammys.

got2b’s moisture masque

it’s been a while since i give my opinion regarding any facial products. i’ll remedy that right now.

with honey, milk, and oatmeal, who could resist?

i was at big lots months ago and stumbled upon a row of got2b’s mo moisture gel masque. it’s suppose to “soften, hydrate, and smooth” your skin with weekly uses.

i bought it because it was only $2 and who could resist the combination of honey, milk, and oatmeal? sounds yummy huh? well i can tell you it smells just as yummy!

i’ve been using it for months now and really really like it! it’s a gel but non drying and again it smells yummy – color is a clear light golden.

for once or twice weekly, i love it. i probably wouldn’t use it every day but it does hydrate my skin and it goes on clear so sometimes i forget i have the mask on.

it is now in rotation with my other zia, and suki products. recommended!
