Monogram and Damier Covalt

Louis Vuitton

No matter how other people think that Louis Vuitton (famous canvas) is redundant in the fashion world, I don't really care. I'm obsessed with its original prints and I carry each bag with pride. The craftsmanship is perfect and the quality is great! My Speedy Bandouliere is definitely my most favourite, it’d experience harsh wind and rain here but I prefer it being battered looking than shiny. I’ll be travelling quite often this year and it gave me the opportunity to look for a spacious wallet where I could stuff my passport, credit cards and iPhone. LV’s Damier Covalt canvas caught my attention and fell in love with it straight away.

Here it is handsome and fancy :)

Fisheye lens is not for everybody as it can make your eyes pop like a fish, but I do like it and been wanting for one ever since. Few weeks ago, I finally bought a Samyang 8mm fisheye lens for my Fuji XT1 camera. I've few ideas where to go and try this lens, I'm quite obsessed about it trying different things and it's funny when I try taking picture of people, really, I feel like a fish looking at them lol!

iPad Mini & iPhone 5S Favourite Apps

Favourite Apps Favourite Apps Favourite Apps

What I love about Apple is having one single account for everything, I can sync my files all at the same time and apps between iPhone and iPad are automatically downloaded when I purchase one.

Below are my iPhone/ iPad Top 10 Apps:

1. Audible. My drive going to and from work is more fun while listening to audiobooks! And I'm quite obsessed about it actually, I'm feeling melancholy with the stories I listen to...

2. Spotify. This is much better than buying every single song I'd like to listen on iTunes. Spotify has radio stations with no advertisements at all. You can pick genre or artists you'd want to listen to. Between you and me, I love listening to Miley Cyrus, no judgement please! 

3. Twitter & Instagram. For me, these apps became search tools whenever I'm looking for a product, a review or any trending news I'd wanted to see. Pinterest, not so much.

4. Flipboard & Bloglovin. My sort of kinda magazine for all things creative and whatnot. I've been using this for quite a long time now, it's prettier to look at than reading something on Safari. 

5. PlayerXtreme. This can play videos of any format, I usually watch my favourite TV series here but it'll use your battery big time.

6. Lynda.com Believe it or not, I have a geeky side. I watch tutorials as past time. Often, I do even dream about programming and codes.

7. You Tube. For not so serious tutorials, I go waste my time watching how to put make up properly, some documentaries and funny stuff.

8. Blogsy. I do use this a lot for posting in my blog. It's very handy especially when you're outside, it's linked to all my photos online and 

9. VSCOcam. Being a sucker for any picture that look like in the 70's - 80's, I'd often find myself using this app to make my photos look like it.

10. BuzzFeed. I believe the founder of this app is a guy who fancies Emma Watson a lot (lol)! She's mostly in the picture of any female news related. I don't mind coz I like her too (",)

Breakfast at Mc Donald's

Docklands at Dawn Docklands at Dawn Docklands at Dawn Docklands at Dawn

Not a lot of people are fond of eating at Mc Donald's, I think I'm one of the few who get excited over a chocolate sundae fudge or a 2euro cheeseburger, they're my comfort food. The breakfast is such delight, they come cheap compare to Starbucks and alike. I'm pleased with how they transformed throughout the years, rebranded and offered healthier food like salad. They've redesigned space and furniture to attract young adults and professionals, Mc Cafe became a meeting place for entrepreneurs and offered "skinny cappucino". Check out this new high tech Mc Donald's in Kilkenn. I frequent their Mc Cafe in Naas, they're open 24 hours and it's great for watching people. 

Last weekend, after picking up my lover from the ferry, we went straight to Mc Donald's to have breakfast, it was quite early (6am) and it's good feeling not be rushing home to prepare something to eat, you just go to Mc Donald's and enjoy their food.

On another note, I bring my Fujifilm XTI everywhere I go, it inspires me to go back to shooting again without lugging heavy intimidating dslr and lenses. Few weeks ago, I've decided to sell my Canon lenses, I put them up for sale and got overwhelmed with offers. Quickly enough, I already sold three lenses in no time and it hurts big time. Well, that was unexpected, I never thought I'd be affected by letting my camera lenses go. I'm now having second thoughts of selling my dslr camera (Canon 5D mkii), but we'll see. I think I really have to let them go.
