Ready, Aim, Shoot!


I love the fact that the image that is shown before you push play makes me look like I’ve smelled something funky… it’s great, right? UPDATE: I found a way to change the pre-play image! Thank goodness…

If you’d like to see a better view of the photos, just click here to visit my flickr. Just want to note that the only editing I did to these “out of camera” was to resize the images. I didn’t adjust the exposure, colors, or anything else.

Don’t forget to visit my Blog Frog community to discuss point and shoot cameras!


Bring on the Sparkle!

Awhile back (ok, 12 days ago actually)  I was asked to do a review of some diamond stud earrings from Diamond Earrings.org.

They aren’t real diamond earrings ’cause I mean who gives away free diamond earrings? However, they are so beautiful!  I was really shocked when I opened the package to find such sparkle.  If I didn’t know any better, I’d think they were pretty real.

I smoothed out around the earring in this photo because, well, I have an ugly fingernail.  They are still trying to recover from months of me getting acrylic nails put on.  If any of you have ever had your nails done then you know what I am talking about.  Other than fixing my ugly fingernail, I didn’t alter this photo.  The stones are held in tightly by the good quality prongs.

They are a bit large for my daughters ears, but I wanted to show what they looked like being worn.  It was easier for me to have her put them on.

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of their product.  I do look forward to the opening of their store.  If you think you’d like to have a gander at their earrings then visit their website and order a pair before they run out!

*I received this product for review.  No guarantee of a positive review was given, nor was it asked of me.
