On top of new opportunities like updating Twitter about the wonderous montage of life in which I find myself immersed on public transport, and checking whether that guy in that film you're watching at a friend's house is actually from Almost Famous without having to move from the couch*, I have also been taking advantage of the camera - feel the awesome power of those 5.0 megapixels!
I've snapped some bits and bobs collected over recent weeks - many of which were birthday presents at the end of June - and pimped them with the Adobe Photoshop app I downloaded.
I'll be honest; I've just been having fun playing with new toys.
^ Blue satchel from Urban Outfitters, which I haven't left home without since it became mine.
^ Alexander McQueen: Genius of a Generation by Kristin Knox. See Amazon link on left of screen.
^ Long lusted-after headphones.
^ Rather glam D&G hoop earrings, with detachable logo discs.
^ Lego shark brooch from Folksy. The most nostalgic thing I've seen in ages.
^ Tatty Devine tortoiseshell anchor earrings. Swoon.
* It was Patrick Fugit and I was watching Wristcutters: A Love Story. It's a hauntingly romantic dark comedy (but not a 'romantic comedy'). Smart script, kickass soundtrack featuring Gogol Bordello, Joy Division and Tom Waits, and an impressive cast. Plus it's no where near as depressing as the title might suggest!
