It’s Almost Friday, Finally!

I know, I know, I don’t normally post my little girl on here for my own set of privacy reasons though at the same time as she’s growing up to be such a cheery ball of sunshine, I can’t help but share her smiles and absolutely adorable moments.

At least I’m not constantly spamming pictures of her and only chose the ‘key’ moments to share.

Case in point, these pictures right here because I love them too much not to share. I love both the little cheeky model in it and also the equipment I used to shoot this – my Olympus EM10 + Olympus 45mm lens.

As seen in this old instagram picture of mine

This combo is my current go-to when shooting portraiture (or even toy shots at that) because of how perfect the effect is.

I’m really glad I went over to the OMD side of things during my camera hunt earlier this year and I even went a step further to acquire the Olympus 45mm lens.

I like cameras and have an interest in the bits and bobs but I was never one to amass an army of interchangeable lenses etc. Though now I can’t quite say the same… I seem to be mildly addicted to this lens-changing-for-situations sort of, well, situation.

Eeps!

 

Anyway, back to this.

I’m sharing some of my favorite shots from the bunch and that brings us back to the sentiment of how I wish it was the weekends already so we can spend more time with this ball of sunshine and have more ‘shoots’!

Little tods are only this small, squishy and fun-sized for so long so we’re going to capture as much of these moments as we can!

(pictures are kinda SOOC – only cropping and resizing was done, no color editing)

Cheeky shy laugh!

And one of my favorites because of how comical it is – there’s hubs and then there’s the girl confused on whether she should be cute or not (hence the cute ‘pose’ yet deadpan expression).

So, phew!

This was a good break from the ‘usual schedule’ for me to sort out what I would like to say in posts to come.

I’ve got some Shupette mentions and some Surratt mentions coming up and I can’t decide which one to pop on first – Shupette because it is Limited Edition, or Surratt just because I’m just way too excited to share about (plus Troy Surratt is popping by our shores this weekend)?

Tsk, decisions decisions…. Though I think I’m going to do the ‘sensible’ thing and mention Shupette first, since it’s Limited Edition and all the hype right now, yes? That’s hoping it is still the hype after my belated-yet-to-come entry… that is!

Info, pics, swatches and looks about’em all coming up over the next week! :)

 

For now, I think I may want to put up a nail mention tomorrow, so that’s coming up!

I anticipate a bit of a ‘break’ / hustle over to my parents place sometime in December so I haven’t decided if I’m going to be scheduling posts up for that period or take a break but… I guess you could expect some entries along the theme of ‘being away from home for a bit’.

Though not as big a scale as my temporary move earlier this year, of course.

 

Thanks for reading! What’s your favorite / currently using camera at the moment?

(Not Quite A) K-Drama Musing… – JaeRim x SoEun Couple!

Oh-My-God.

Like omg.

Be warned – a tad fan-girly even but… read on at your own expense!

 

Okay… I’ll first like to admit that I gave up watching When A Man Loves after it’s 13th episode. Which means the minute I wrote that ramble, I stopped watching it because, at that point of the show, it felt so draggy and monotonous that I had to make myself watch it and I just wasn’t feeling it anymore.

So yes, I’m sorry Shin Se Kyung, I’m ditching you.

This (Jae Rim x So Eun couple) on the other hand brings soooo much feels into my life.

Some We Got Married backstory for the uninitiated, and also to introduce my history with this on-going korean reality tv show – it’s pretty much a virtual marriage sort of a show where they couple people up be it Idols, Actors/Actresses, Singers, Models, you name it!

My first experience with WGM went back to my days of minor SS501-stanning. Yes, this is kind of history and I don’t see Kim Hyun Joong in the same light after his recent abuse case but he and Hwangbo were the first couple I watched on thsi show and they were… kinda funny, kinda cute?

Lee Hyun Joong x Hwang Bo

After that I stopped for a bit and I can’t recall why I picked up the show again… was it the Kangin x Lee Yoon Ji couple?

Kang In x Lee Yoon Ji

I can’t recall but then I went on quite a binge with this series, following on with the Goguma Couple (Yong Hwa x Seo hyun), Khuntoria (Nichkhun x Victoria), Adam Couple (Ga In x Jo Kwon) and a couple more…

Khuntoria!

I really can’t recall but I believe that was the peak of WGM, where every couple was exciting, fun, and such a joy to watch.

By the time Eun Jung and Jang Woo went on the show, I was tuning out already and I’ve only dropped in on the show a little here and there to catch a couple episodes of Sunhwa, Lee Joon and such but nothing really ignited that whole WGM-fire in me though this couple, this couple here….

Omgosh they’re so cute I can’t even.

Now I’m saying all this knowing how much shade is around WGM for their scripting and whatnot but, like in the case of Running Man, I’m going to go in and pretend to be all oblivious about that and just enjoy the laughs and interactions.

I’ll also say that I didn’t think much of Song Jae Rim prior even when I caught him in Moon That Embraces the Sun but he’s so charming here, regardless if he’s really such a forward byuntae (perv) or not, they’re so entertaining to watch.

This couple is only about 8 episodes in and they’ve got a whole myriad of nicknames from OMG Couple, to LTE-Couple (like internet connection speed… hurhur), to 19+ Couple due to their very forward advances and things they say.

I don’t know.. I think this entry is a whole fangirl tribute to this reignited spark I have with WGM but I am enjoying this couple’s interaction so much that I’ve ditched all thoughts of dramas in the meanwhile.

Though maybe I should go watch Surplus Princess… just because Song Jae Rim is in it. Heh.

 

Update – Too late, I’ve already started on Surplus Princess and it’s so silly and hilarious I’m loving it. Though that’s for another musings post in another time ;)

 

Thanks for reading!

Do share, are you a WGM-fan? Have you started watching this couple?
