Hello! Hello! It's been a wee while hasn't it!? I hadn't planned to be away from my blog for so long but the last few weeks have just been so busy and then I went and bought myself a new toy. A spiffy new tablet! My first tablet in fact! Actually my first ever techie mobile device!
So far in my 30+ years of existence I have lived quite happily without a mobile phone and plan to do just that for as long as possible. Since I'm a wee bit of a loner who spends most of her time happily in her own company (+1 adorable spaniel of course!) I've never needed one either. But a tablet on the other hand... oooh! I've had a hankering for one of these lovelies for what feels like an age now and finally I treated myself to a nifty little Nexus.
I picked a Nexus because of the great reviews about it's screen and colour display (which lives up to everything I read!), plus the fact that it has a 1.2 megapixel camera as well as the webcam. It's a pretty nifty little camera too, a few of these shots were taken with it and in terms of digital images for use online there's little difference in quality. The only obvious restrictions are when it comes to lighting control and whatnot but for cute, quick snaps it is spot on!
So with that in mind can you guess how long it was before I had my first pic on Instagram!? Okay, so it was a couple of hours but that was only because I met my Man for lunch right after buying it then couldn't remember my Google password off the top of my head and had to wait until I got home! But dammit, if it wasn't for all that it would have been less than ten minutes I swear!
So yes, as well as a bunch of work and enjoying a wee bit of summer weather here in Edinburgh I've been Instagramming a ton of stuff and loving it! Obviously I got carried away with the fab filters in the beginning but I'm just about over that now, having settled on 'Hudson' as one of my go to faves.
