Nikon 1 J4 camera (in white)

For the past few months, I've been hunting for a high quality camera to take better fashion blog photos and pictures for my shopping hauls. I've been a fan of Nikon cameras ever since I purchased the Nikon 1 J1 from Groupon last year. (Click here to read my last Camera purchase post.)

You know I had to jump at the chance when I heard the Nikon J4 went on sale everywhere ranging from about $249 to $400.

I was lucky to pick up the last camera at a nearby Target for $249. Sadly I don't think there are anymore on the Target website. The cameras are also on sale at Amazon, and even the Nikon website.
I'm excited because the camera is 18.4 MP, Wi-Fi enabled, touchscreen, has High-Speed Continuous shooting, HD movie recording, and is pretty compact and lightweight. The camera definitely has a lot of features that the J1 lacks and I just felt like it was time to take it up a notch.

I just placed orders on Amazon for a MicroSD card, a tripod, a carrying case, so once all that stuff arrives, I can start snapping away. ;) Perfect timing because I'm about to do my hair color again this weekend.

Trip to Catalina

Hey all! I've been so busy mainly to spend more time with the bf and going out with the girls, but I haven't forgotten about my blog! I'm actually working with a site designer from and most likely I should have new design up in May or early June, so I'm definitely excited for that. I'm debating whether I should re-do my website to purple & floral versus a turquoise/gold mix. Who knows what'll inspire me by that time.

 So back to my post...a couple of weekends ago, My bf and I went to Catalina Island. The ferry ride from Long Beach to Avalon took about an hour but I love traveling so I kept myself busy by browsing pinterest and watching Youtube vids. Here are pics: 





It was so beautiful there - there is a small beachy area to relax, as well as many water attractions (parasailing, scuba-diving, kayaking, dolphin watching, etc.) I would recommend Catalina for a one-day or overnight trip if you want to go somewhere quiet and relaxing. It's not too big of a place but if you love water activities and have some extra vacation money, you'll be able to keep yourself busy.

On a side note, I've been MIA partly because I've also been doing a ton of shopping! From makeup at Sephora to shopping at Nordstrom - I have so much to share with you all!

I've also been back & forth on buying a new digital camera for all of my photos. I'm really considering the Nikon J4. I swear there's always something new to buy, isn't there? ;)
