Four More Days Until Paradise !

The countdown is on and my boyfriend and I have 4 more days before we leave on our vacation ! We are so excited, I can't wait to just lay out on the beach and listen to the ocean and just enjoy some quality time with my lovely boyfriend !

I have all my clothes packed early because if I wait until last minute I would be up all night trying to pack and I hate having that sort of anxiety. The only thing I need to pack the night before is all of my toiletries. I also need to decide where I am going to fit all 6 of my cameras I am bringing on vacation. A girl can never have to many cameras...right ? Since I am all into film cameras now. I am bringing 4 film cameras, one digital and my flip !

Here is a rundown of the cameras I am bringing with me.

This cutie is the Fisheye 2 camera in pink !! Love it so much, I haven't taken any pictures with it yet but the pictures come out really cool..they look like a fisheye.

This is the underwater submarine case that goes with the Fisheye 2 camera so I can get all those cool underwater shots !

This is the Diana Mini En Rose so cute...very soft pretty pictures !

This is my Flip video camera have to get all those amazing videos where a camera just isn't enough.

This is my handy little samsung dual view digital camera...I love this point & shoot camera because I can take pictures of myself all day and I won't ever cut off my head !

This is my supersampler camera which has 4 lenses and you get 4 pictures in one. This is one of my favorite cameras because the pictures are just so cool !

Last but certainly not least this is my newest addition to my camera family. My Canon AE-1. This baby is a 30 year old vintage slr 35mm camera. This really takes some nice pictures. I finally tested it out and you can check out the pictures on my photography blog.

These are the fabulous cameras I am bringing with me on vacation and that isn't even all of my cameras..haha !! Crazy I know .. as long as I have my 6 cameras CHECKED OFF MY LIST and my bathing suit I am all ready.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday weekend and I will update you all when I get back !

Oh and....

Geesh time flies when your busy !! I have had a lot going on these last few weeks. The most important thing is I am done shopping for my vacation...yippee !! The countdown is on and I am preparing for island mode. I just have two more weeks and I will be enjoying the sun in Dominican Republic and I can't wait !!

In the meantime, I finally found a friend that was willing to take some time and model for me so that I can build my photography portfolio !! If you want to check it out head over to my new photography blog ! Show me some love if you just like to look at pictures from time to time ! I had a lot of fun and I think I may be setting up another artsy photo shoot with someone else this weekend !

Oh and I had a great weekend I went to a friends party and had so much fun and then on the way home I got a freaking speeding ticket for doing 52 in a 35 on some country road. I was so pissed because doing 52 in my car is like doing 35 mph ! I don't know how much it will be yet but I am just upset because I don't have any tickets on my record ! The cop was a real jerk and I told him I wasn't from around there and I didn't even see a speed limit sign ...I just feel like there is more important things happening in this world besides me driving at 52mhp. Give me a break. I can see if I was doing like 70 or 80 and weaving in and out of lanes but come on now, I feel like I was targeted because I have a sports car... I am so over it !!

Other then that life is great and I am looking at taking a film photography class in June I am so excited about it. I also decided to take a little break from making jewelry and redesign my etsy shop and come back with fun pieces so that has been challenging but fun ! I promise I will update soon.

Prince William and Kate

I must say I am really happy for Prince William and Kate. They dated for a long time. I believe it was 7 or 8 years. It has to take a strong woman to date a prince ! I think she has handled the press really well seeing that all eyes were on her for the last few months. They both took it in stride. I know Prince William has a long history with the press and his feelings about what happened to his mother must haunt him seeing that the press chased his mother ultimately leading to her death. However he reminds me so much of his mom and how classy she was !!

I couldn't wait to see the dress and then when I saw it I wasn't that impressed. This was her chance to really do something modern and just push the envelope a bit. I love the dress from the waste up but from the waste down I was disappointed, it took it back to the 80's for me at that point. I know she has guidelines to follow and it couldn't be anything normal in a since but she could have picked something better then that. To each is own she still looked pretty and it was cool that she did her own makeup !

I did like her second dress much better then the first one. It was still conservative but more modern to say the least. I personally think they will make it and they looked so happy and in love and I guess that is all that matters !
