Recent Tech Acquisitions

Being an aspiring blogger, world traveler and amateur photographer makes shopping on Amazon really fun, but also quite dangerous for my wallet. I’ve acquired a few techie items over the past month or two and am here to share them with you all.


Being obsessed with taking pictures and having them be of good quality has fuelled some of my recent purchases on Amazon and in photography stores. I thought I’d share these here with you seeing as I love taking photos for my blog and when I travel and these little gadgets will make my pictures that much better.

Mpow 3 in 1 Clip On Camera Photo Set for iPhone (

I have the iPhone 5S. The picture quality with this device is not bad, but I wanted to get some lenses to make iPhone pictures a little more interesting. These three lenses were under $20 and work really well. They clip on the phone really easily. There is a macro lens, a wide angle and a fish lens.


Mpow iSnap X Monopod Extendable Selfie Stick (

Yes, I purchased a selfie stick, I am now one of ‘those’ people. It’s fun to use with friends, to add more background, for crazy funny pictures. It’s a fun tool to have around and super easy to use. It connects to the phone via Bluetooth and with one click the picture is taken. Again, it was not expensive and ships quickly from Amazon.


Sony a500 Camera 


I wanted to get a compact camera that would still allow me some photographic lee-way. A point-and-shoot just doesn’t do it for me. I need something with a bit more capacity and this camera definitely offers the compact with the possibility manually adjust some features. I love the flip display screen and the possibility to change the lens. So far I have used my new camera on a trip to San Francisco (a blog post to come) and I loved it so much. I had to splurge a bit to make this purchase, but I am beyond happy I did. I will get so much use out of this new baby of mine.


I will most likely be getting more of these fun gadget/techie things in the future, especially as my blog starts to grow and my travels take me further.

I hope your week has and is still great. Good night all.
