Something New



I always overindulge in shopping in December and then I can hardly afford anything in January. I did manage to get a few things this year, though...
First up, photography books. Fashion photography by Lara Jade and Boudoir photography by Christa Meola. Both are amazing photographers in their respective fields. I already do fashion photography, but I'm always happy to learn more and hone my skills further. Even if I am learning from people way younger than me (Lara Jade).
Boudoir photography, on the other hand, is something I haven't tried yet but am keen to add to my repertoire. Making ordinary women feel fabulous; why not.
Next up, a dress by Vjera Vilicnik, whom I'll be doing a few collaborations with very soon. You can see the detail of the dress in the photo above. And I'll be posting an outfit with it soon. I wish I could buy her whole collection; she makes such amazing stuff.
The next favourite is not a purchase but a gift and it's a Kindle paperwhite. To be honest, I actually like the feel and smell of traditional books, but I am a prolific reader and Kindle just made sense. Especially for when I travel or commute.
So there you have it, my favourite new things.
Did you treat yourself in January? Bought stuff on sales? What are your favourite new things? Do tell.

I love books, I alternate between my kindle and paper books. Could never give them up completely!

I prefer real books but I do read ebooks as well...I haven't done much shopping myself, but I found some fun stuff for family and friends.

I received a Kindle Fire for Christmas and although not originally too fussed about it because I also like the feel of a real book, I did like the idea of being able to read blogs, play games and do other things on it and it's a perfect size for travelling (not that I get to do much). I think I'm coming round to it now as I've started to notice that I'm picking it up a bit more and using it now.

Look forward to the outfit post - the colours on the dress shown look stunning.

@Sue, oh the dress is fabulous. Purple and lilac with green rose belt. I can't wait to wear it. It's actually a summer dress, but I think I can combine it for winter too...

The Kindle's a fabulous gift. I love photography books but mine tends to be more food and travel oriented. I've been buying basics during the sale. Nothing huge, just things that I needed.

@psycho cat...uskoro :)

Kristina said...

@chocolate, oh I do love a good food photography book too. In fact any food book. Umm...well I just love food
