Playing in the Snow

Winter brought yet another snowfall today and we took Samantha out to feel the snow for her very first time.
As you can see she wasn't very impressed... :-)

She wasn't sure what she was supposed to do here ;-)

Nope! Snow does not taste that good!

Fun Photography Gadgets

As a photographer I often experiment with all things photography, including 'iPhoneography'. From Instagram and its creative filters to several gadgets that convert my iPhone into a fun camera. 

My 'love affair' with Photojojo started when my hubby surprised me with a cool coffee cup that looks like a Nikon lens. You can imagine the look on my face when I opened the box and saw it thinking it was the real thing, just to realize it wasn't an actual lens =) But I was sold! 

Getting an iPhone opened a whole new chapter of photography and gave me a chance to be creative and have fun with a few gadgets from Photojojo. 

Here is my 'arsenal'... and a few gift ideas for any photography enthusiast.

1. Nikon Camera Lens Coffee Cup 

2.. Holga iPhone Lens 

An iPhone case with a nine-in-one lens set on a rotating disk. From vignettes to color filters to multi-image lenses- taking photos is so much more fun.

3. The Olloclip 3-in-1 iPhone Lens

Fisheye and a Wide Angle/Macro combo lens fits over the corner of your iPhone.

4. The iPhone Telephoto Lens

The kit includes a fixed telephoto lens (8x for iPhone 4/4s or 12x for iPhone 5 closer view),  a matte black iPhone case that you twist the lens onto, and a tripod. 

5. The Tokyo Dreamer Strap in Berry Red

Why not make a statement with this stylish strap with a handy little pouch for film or memory cards?

6. The Get Into Focus Lens Mug

My latest purchase- this ceramic mug is perfect for coffee or tea lovers. 

All the fun gadgets can be purchased at Photojojo Store here. Each order comes with this little guy =)

The guests were able to take a look at the latest additions to Aires Jewelers signature collection, as well as extensive fine jewelry and watch collections. Why not add a few things to your wish list?
