meet the ipod:
 Soooo my ipod is in pretty bad shape. It's been dropped about 3-4 times and each time, the cracks get worse and worse. Thankfully though, I got myself an upgrade:

Oh ya, it's a fancy lil thing. I especially loooove high resolution screen, and the cute stylus that comes with it. It makes it super easy to write notes, grocery lists, and anything else you can think of. The best part is that there's a built in slot for the stylus in the tablet, so you never have to worry about losing it. Yay! I've found myself using the Galaxy the most either when I'm in bed before we go to sleep, checking emails, or when we're on the go. It's extremely lightweight and the size is absolutely perfect so you never have to worry about holding something bulky while traveling.

Now let's talk about the picture quality. As you probably would have guessed, I love taking pictures. If I could, I would take my DSLR everywhere. But that thing gets pretty heavy and sometimes it's not the most ideal thing to lug around. This is where my new tablet comes in. The photo quality isn't as good as a DSLR (obviously) but my photos do come out nice and sharp. Perfect for taking quick snaps on the go. 

hello beautiful new gadget.

As of right now,  I haven't used the tablet nearly enough to know all the perks that come along with having it. But so far, I'm extremely happy with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and I'm excited to take it with me everywhere. Besides, we could all use a little more technology right? It is the 21st century after all.

  1. I have always wanted one of those!! So cool!!

  2. What a nice nice upgrade for sure ;) I don't have the Galaxy Note but I do have the S3 & I lovvve it!

  3. My fiance is a photographer so I make him lug his DSLR around just for me and my blog photography. Haha! I agree, they can be super heavy though and it isn't always practical.


  4. How cute are you with your new gadget! I'm curious to try the samsung galaxy. Right now I have an Ipad, but I don't use it much so I'm not sure if getting another tablet would be ideal haha.

    Love your tights girl!

  5. that's so cool! I think I would have to get used to carrying around such a big device..haha. Not that it's bad but it's just different! Love these cute photos. =)

  6. Oh my word, this is so amazing Marsa! How did you swing that?
    Anyway, definitely seems like a handy thing to have. A DSLR can be such a burden to lug around haha
