Loving…Camera Couture

I’ve been longing for a beautiful Camera Couture bag for a very long time (I even had one listed on my Christmas 2012 Pinterest board). I love my SLR, but I’m often reluctant to take it out and about with me simply because it’s quite bulky, and it means carrying around an extra camera bag.  The Camera Couture bags are perfect because they look like normal handbags, but they can also safely hold your SLR and any other accessories such as extra lenses and filters.  So, I really hope that I win this competition that they’re running, which challenges us to list “what’s in your camera bag”.  I thought I would break from a traditional list and create a collage, so here it is:

Labello – because I feel naked without it

Tissues & Allergex – I have serious allergy problems, even in winter (is that TMI?)

iPhone , wallet, hair elastics – kind of self-explanatory

Energy bars – I have been known to get “hangry

Sunscreen & sunglasses – to complete my “pale and interesting” look

Camera, lenses and filters – yes, that’s how many lenses I have (I wish)

The kitchen sink – ‘cos it could probably fit.

Dear Camera Couture people, please pick me!

I have a bit of a confession.  I have a thing for phone covers.

There, I said it.  It is by no means a serious addiction (I “only” have about five different ones), but if I see a new phone cover that I like, and it’s a reasonable price, I can’t really resist.

This is why I’m really excited about Wrappz. is a South African based website where you can design your own covers for your techy gadgets.  It works through a really simple online tool, and you have the option of choosing one of your own photos, or a photo  from their extensive online gallery.

As if that wasn’t enough, you can also add text and manipulate the colour, orientation etc as you wish.  One of the best parts is that they offer cases and skins for almost every gadget imaginable, including the following:

Phones (iPhone, Blackberry, HTC, Samsung)

iPod & iPod Touch

Laptop skins

Games consoles

iPad cases (full size and mini)

Kindles & other E-readers



Sony Docking stations

Prices range from R179 to R599, depending on the item, and your item will be delivered to you within 10 to 18 days.  All items are made from the best quality scratch-resistant polycarbonate.  I think these can make for a really customize-able and unique gift for family and friends.  You even have the option of purchasing a gift voucher for your loved one, so they can design their own (teenagers would go mad for this).

So what are you waiting for?  Head on over to Wrappz to get designing!

Below are some designs using my own photos, what do you think?

Loving… Autumn

So, it seems that Cape Town has decided that Summer is officially over.  There was no gradual decrease in temperature, Autumn just arrived (or at least it feels that way).  And I have to confess that I’m actually enjoying it.  I love summer, but I’m also really looking forward to evenings cuddled up under a blanket with a hot water bottle and a cat on my lap (for now I’m choosing to ignore the likelihood of endlessly rainy days and freezing cold wind).  So, to get us into the Autumn spirit (at least those of us in the Southern hemisphere), here are some Autumn inspired images to enjoy.
