Spur of the Moment

I thought I would do a bit of a random post today, I'm sat on the train with no 3G so that means no twitter or reading blogs. I might as well be a bit productive and write myself a blog post as I don't have the time when I'm at uni. This is very spur of the moment, I haven't actually decided what this post is going to be about. Well planned Emma. 

I seem to be on trains quite a lot when I'm at uni, I come home once in the term and then I have to get the train home at the end of the term with a months worth of clothes in tow, my hand hurts just remembering how heavy my case was, that was not a fun journey! I'm getting to the end of my first year and I am really looking forward to being home for three months. I love uni, don't get me wrong, I have made some amazing friends and memories but I'm ready for being home, having some peace and not having to do so much work! It also helps that I've got a holiday to look forward to and it's my birthday in August! I'm also looking forward to being able to blog a lot more, I'm really hoping to post everyday when I can. 

I'm also really excited to use my new camera that I got at the weekend when I was home. I wasn't planning on getting one, I wanted my dad's approval of the camera I wanted because he knows so much about them so I had found a secondhand one that I thought was reasonable but I was going to wait till I'd at least finished for summer. I then decided to google this camera and see what it said about it and what popped up? An offer on Argos for this camera and it was only £30 more to get it new, well it's safe to say I was tempted, it then showed me some offers connected to the camera and one was to get a free accessories case worth £60 for FREE. Well then it was bound to happen, I went into Argos and found my camera but I decided to wait and not go into it too quick, it was on offer but it was still a lot of money. My boyfriend and I then went to see the new X-Men film, a great film may I add and whilst watching it I'd decided the camera would be mine that day. So for the second time that day we went into Argos again and I got the camera and free accessories package for a very good deal, I don't think the accessories kit is worth £60, I only got a camera bag, a memory card and lens cloth but it was free so I'm not complaining.

The camera I got is the Canon EOS 1100d and it is a beauty. A post will be coming in about two weeks when I am reunited with my new toy when I get back with more details about the camera and of course some pictures, I am really happy with it and I believe I will get my use out of it. 

I hope this post was okay. It's a bit of a random one but once summer starts there will be a constant stream of posts from me, if you have any posts you would like to see please comment below, inspiration is always wanted! 

Ta ta for now

    1. I just decided to go the whole hog and get a DSLR! I could have got a compact one but I thought I could do a lot more with a DSLR. I'm thinking that when I've finished uni for summer and my dad has taught me some things about cameras that I will be doing a post on tips for cameras

    1. This one is really good and for the little time that I used it it was so easy to use, it's more expensive than what I was going to spend but I thought of it as a treat for after my exams
