If you recall from one of my earlier posts, I've always been the bargain shopper/DIYer. So, you can bet that I was pretty excited when I came across this bag at the mall and on clearance for $15 bucks! I knew immediately that it would be perfect as a stylish camera bag! What I did for the padding on the one side for my lens is use the one that was in my Lowepro bag. And there you have it! Instead of spending $300 plus on a camera bag, I saved a ton by doing this!
Ten years in the making... welcome baby Anakin to the world!

If you're new to this site, then you probably won't notice but I have been doing a lot of updates! For the next couple of weeks, I will be adding more photos and more content. Please be patient as I update my website (most likely on a day-to-day basis). I promise that once the website is complete, you will have lots of tools and valuable resources at your fingertips.
As for now, enjoy these photos I found in my fault. Sometimes the best photos are the ones captured by design and/or experience. For example, we all have that one (or 2 or 3) kid(s) that ALWAYS seem to blow out the birthday candle before the actual birthday person does. This usually happens right after the last part of, "Happy birthday dear Su-san. Happy birthday to..." wheeewwww! <--- There goes the fire on the candle. Hahahaha. You know what I'm talking about... ;D
Sad to say this but, Summer in Wisconsin has come to an end. With the cooler weather nowadays, I find myself pulling out the sweaters and cardigans more than the sleeveless tops. I've been pretty busy this Summer. Here's what I've been up to (in Instagram photos):
My husband and I try to fly (or drive) out of state every Summer. Last year, we flew to California and then took a road-trip out west to Yellowstone National Park and Rocky Mountain National Park. That was quite an experience! One I hope to do again before I get old-er. This year, we flew out to California again. My sister lives there so it's quite easy to visit since she knows her way around and there's just so much to do there! Plus, it's cheaper because we just stay at her place. Next year though, we are planning on visiting the East Coast since both of us has never been there. Any suggestions?
I have always wanted to be one of those cool photographers that blog about EVERYTHING in their daily life. I always wanted the cool street photos of people and those cheesy food photos but something held me back from being one of them - fear of ruining my DSLR. You see, I'm extremely picky about the bags I carry. Because of my pickiness, I only have about 4 purses, tons of totes (grocery and beach bags), and tons of clutches/wallets. I don't like to spend more than $50 dollars on a purse because I get bored of them fast and/or they always end up deteriorating on me. I admit, I don't always take the best care of my purses because I just toss them wherever I can find an open spot but, that doesn't mean I don't like to be fashionable! So, in an effort to be more like the photographer-blogger that I aspire to be, I splurged a little and bought myself this bag from TJ Maxx. It cost me $70 bucks! But, I received tons of compliments already on it and it is SUPER-FUNCTIONAL. I love the double-strap and usually I don't because I have small rounded shoulders that can't hardly hold anything in place. Plus, I like how structured it is as well as the soft, lush fabric and the simple metal accents. Most of all, I like that I made my own foam insert that fit perfectly in this bag for my DSLR! Now I can carry it with me wherever I go and not miss a single moment!
