REVIEW | ALIEXPRESS BIKINI HAUL

We’ve all been seeing super cute bikinis with summer approaching and I couldn’t resist browsing around online. Some popular destinations are Zaful and Cupshe but I had a hunch that I had seen some of those designs for cheaper, and that would be on Aliexpress! Always down to save a couple of extra bucks, I decided to place a few orders for my tropical vacation coming up. I’ve always wondered if ordering from Aliexpress would be safe and legit and through this test I would recommend ordering from Aliexpress. Only somethings though… there are some things I wouldn’t order; this post will cover the bikinis I have ordered. Here is everything you have ever wanted to know about ordering from Aliexpress!

REVIEW | FujiFilm Instax Mini 8 – Capturing THAT Moment

 

One of the things I regret most is not having a tangible reflection of an amazing memory… A trip to Japan last year I picked up the FujiFilm Intax mini 8. Love the quick and easy instant pictures and they’re always a hit with friends and family.

I got it at a discount price and while the camera unit itself isn’t very expensive, it’s the constant need for more film that makes this little guy an investment. But other than that I can’t complain because every time I bring this to an event or party it has been a hit. I loved every minute of the duck faced pouts, the silly photo dives and impromptu giggles it caused.

Any advice on how to show off them polaroids? I’m not a huge fan of having them kept in a book but maybe strung on wall? Comment down below some suggestions! Perfect for a Christmas Gift the to photographer of the family, or a treat for yourself you can find the FujiFilm Intax Mini 8 here.

REVIEW | IPHONE 5S

I’ve finally caved and hoped onto the Apple bandwagon and bought the iPhone 5s. Don’t know if its worth the hefty price tag but so far it is a wonderful upgrade from my Samsung Galaxy S1 (yup, I was definitely behind on the tech times). When looking into getting a new smart phone, my main requirements were good camera, I can use it with one hand, apps, and something that won’t become obsolete in a year. The iPhone fit the bill andddddddd I footed a hefty bill for this month’s credit card statement.

Of course everyone is also wondering…what do you think of iOS7? To be honest, the first time I saw the renderings online, I thought it was extremely ugly, but through using it, I’ve become more fond of it? Didn’t think I could, but it’s definitely growing on me. I wish there was more customization for the user, because honestly, that green for text messages….ain’t my favourite colour to say the least. Also the white background can become quite harsh at night and it would be nice to be able to change the background to a darker colour, or when texting someone their contact icon shows up…or, well there are a lot of improvements I think Apple could make to their new UI really…
Final notes:
LOVE the camera, app variety, speed…
HATE the price tag
Would I recommend you buying it? Well if your wallet allows it and you’re willing to make the investment? I don’t see why not. But if you’ve already got the iPhone 5, don’t bother; it’s really just the same.
