Pastel Unicorns and Crying in Space

I am one happy and very lucky, spoilt lady - I'm turning 21 in just a couple of days time, and my parents bought me a Canon EOS 60D! (I may have gotten it a little early, hehe). Needless to say I've been spending all my time playing around with the new camera and not studying. One thing that I'm really happy about is that the 60D is incredibly useful if you take your own photos (i.e. if you're a blogger who needs to take multiple outfit shots in a day and you don't have a super patient photographer friend who will take photos whenever you need them). The best feature of the 60D is that has a flip-out, twisty screen which you can use to look at and position yourself right in front of the camera. Buy a self-timer remote, and it's super easy to take outfit photos.
A package from Oasap containing this new dress and sweater also arrived in the mail the morning while I was playing with my new camera, so I decided to take some pictures of them! I'm super in love with this sweater - it's basically the softest, most cuddly thing in the world and the print on the front and back just make it that little bit sweeter. I'm fairly sure I am going to live in it throughout the winter here.

For the last few days I've been obsessed with watching the Canadian Space Agency's youtube channel (after this video went viral - the first music video recorded in space! And it's a David Bowie song!). Astronaut Chris Hadfield is not only my new hero for doing that, but he's also done a bunch of videos while onboard the International Space Station explaining how everyday things work when the physics is completely different: including brushing your teeth, making a sandwich, getting a haircut and crying.

Of my life-goals, living up in the ISS for a few months is probably one of the most unrealistic, but gosh I want to be an astronaut, so badly. Does anyone else ever get that feeling??

Anway, this video from Chris Hadfield shows what happens if you cry in space.

    1. I'm not sure..... the website says polyester? It's a little bit fuzzy, but feels soooooooo so so so soft. It's basically the softest, snuggliest thing I've ever touched.

  12. Aww, such a sweet present from your parents :) I really like the boater hat but of course the killer item is definitely the little pony/unicorn sweater - it is SO YOU! And it's adorable, you look lovely wearing such cute fluffly jumper. I am also intrigued by the astronaut tears... Fascinating! xx

  14. Oh, my goodness! I literally ordered my Canon 60D yesterday (it's my graduation present). How are you liking yours and what stuff did you get with it? I got a really huge kit.

    1. I AM LOVING IT! You are going to love it so much, you lucky lady. I just got it body-only, because I already have some lenses, but then I also bought a 50mm f 1.8 lens (this lens) - it's the best! It gives the nicest blurring of the background when you set the aperture to 1.8. So good for self-portraits :)

  22. That is exactly what I do when I take outfit shots too! The flip screen and remote thing is the best. Though I have a T3i.
    This outfit is incredible because that unicorn sweater is the greatest sweater in all the land! I love the pink hair paired with it too.
