Loves :: New Year, New Phone!



You may have been wondering how I ended up on Instagram after telling you for so long how technologically challenged I am. Well, I ended up finding an amazing deal via Amazon on Black Friday, and I got a new phone that I absolutely love. It's the Samsung Galaxy S3! I was so overprotective of it at first that I didn't let it leave my bedroom for a week. It's my most prized possession. Even though I never wanted to become one of those girls who is constantly on her smart phone, well -- it's official. I'm obsessed! It runs faster than my laptop (I have a Toshiba Satellite C655) and the photo quality is better than my point-and-shoot camera (a Panasonic LUMIX FH25). That's why I've become addicted to Instagram. It's quick, it's easy, it looks good. I'm glad I decided to jump on the bandwagon with this one! I usually take photos of palm trees, food, my friends and myself...








Oh! And speaking of new, I just had a new interview that I'm so excited to share with you. Cameron Miquelon invited me to be her first Follow Friday of the year! She crafts the most thoughtful, detailed questions and has a way of making every blogger feel honored and appreciated. Thanks again for the opportunity, Cameron!

  4. Funny how we both got Instagram around the same time! My parents gifted me an iTouch for my Birthday and Instagram was the first app I downloaded! I'm loving it. I do need to get a better photo editing app soon though (lol). Let me know of any other apps you like!

  5. Uuuh Stephanie, I am so following you on Instagram now! By the way, that's what happens when you get a new phone. I fell for it as well! I set up an Instagram account as soon as I got my Samsung Galaxy Ace (which is a shitty phone compared to yours but hey, it does the dirty job!)
    You'll see, it will make blogging easier and tougher at the same time! (you will have lots of photos to fill your posts with, but you won't feel like writing cause sharing your life through Instagram's images it's so easy and immediate!)

  7. Yeah! Welcome to Instagram, I always love your photos, especially the ones you post up of food lol!

    Welcome to the world of Android too, I really love my droid, everyone always bangs on about the iPhone, but I promise you once you've really spent some time with a power house android device like the S3 there is no way you could use an iPhone.

  9. I'm definitely enjoying your photos. I am so addicted to Instagram. Hubby actually got a little irritated with me on our travels this weekend, because we can never sit down to a meal without me photographing it first. I need to get a grip on that!

  10. I'm bad about taking picture of our food first. I just have to take a pic quick cause he doesn't wait to eat. I've had horrible luck with droids. I had a HTC inspire and it sucked but I've heard rave reviews on the SIII.

  11. Congrats on your new phone. I like your insta photos a lot. Instagram stopped working on my 3 year old I phone a while back. I also just never fot that into it. But I like your new photos and I think if I had one of the new cameras I'd be way more into it.
