House tour, dresses, and bright pillows

How's your week going?

There's a few things I'm excited about right now!

Have you seen Eyes on Sparrows blog? I kinda love it, and our house tour is featured there today. You can check it out here.

In other news, today I got this dress from Asos.
Anyone who ships free to New Zealand is a champion in my book. Last time we ordered anything from overseas (shower curtain and 2 yards of fabric) it cost $80 for shipping! Argch...

I also got a little Couch Happy and lumped all my bright pillows together.

The round white ottoman you can just see in the left corner is a great place to plonk magazines. If I could just find time to read them.

And...
I finally bought a proper camera. This is the nikon D3200 and I'm loving it - there is a 'Guide Mode' feature that walks you through each step when you set up a shot - ideal for someone like me who doesn't know what f.stop, aperture, ISO, or anything else is....!

I can't believe I lasted so long taking photos on my phone! What kind of camera do you use?

  7. I'm interested to see how you like the Nikon! My sister has one (I don't remember what kind--I've used it before, it's awesome!) I have a Canon Rebel. I love it. You should learn to shoot manual! It's hard at first, but I think it helps with pictures a ton! At least for me, that is :).

  8. I have stacks and stacks of magazines and they're all piled on my ottoman too! One day, I will catch up and read all of them. :)

    Loving those pillows - they look so great together.

    Hope you're having a fantastic week so far!
