Boredom 2

Part 2

(I'm loving this lamp's lightning! Never realized how nice it is untill now. FAIL)

Boredom 1

Boredom effect. Part 1.


It's storming. It's agressive and the wind is the strongest I've ever seen. Anyway... I'm so bored I just want to yell at everything! Got my camera, took some pictures. Nothing great, it's just to pass time.

What do you do when you're bored? Any ideas? Anything you can teach me about photography that makes time fly? HELP!

Christmas II

Wishing you a Merry Christmas!

(About the photo: taken in a RAW format. That's actually the first time I got the time and patience to experiment this format. How stupid was I!? We can clearly see the diferences.... Anyway, I learnt my lesson.)


Awww... how nice is it to start a new post with a pretty image of a nice sunrise. It was taken last 15th, whille I was getting ready to go to class. Lisbon.

Anyway, let's get started!
Yesterday I arrived my hometown (Praia da Vitória, Azores) for Christmas, and I can't feel happier! (Obviously) It's so so sooo nice to be around the family and to smell that characteristic "family home" smell, always so good.
My Christmas tree is smaller than last year, but it still looks nice and fresh and cute! Take a look.

That's it for now. Sorry for the boring random stuff... I just felt like posting something nice. I'm still hoping for new photos.

Picture taken this afternoon. Me, my godson and cousin Rodrigo, and my uncle Vitor, trying to figure out how to work with my cellphone xD


Presentiiiiiiiiing my new object from my wishlist! (how I love wishlists...)
I finally got my new lens! Sigma FTW!
So... it's a Sigma 70-30mm f4-5.6 Macro, I bought it yesterday, and it's only been one day but I'm loving it! I actually watched some reviews about this one on YouTube, and got impressed. The macro option = LOVE. It's amazing... I can shoot closer with a few feet away from it. The zoom is pretty satisfying, good enough to shoot the moon with a lot of new details. I can't wait! =D

Got myself a new self-portrait with the new lens, for celebration. I shot it against the mirror, with the remote control, and then I inverted it, to look like as if someone was taking my picture. It's taken with the new lens ^^
Oh and I curled my hair a little bit in the front, with my new hair straightener and also curler. It's pretty good.

Here are some pictures from the lens itself, taken by me, in my homemade little photo studio. I made it to have some fun with macro. I'll post more pictures later.

And here's the Nikon D80 equiped with the 70-300mm.

three objects

So... there's a LOT of new stuff I must write down before I forget, since it's been some very productive and nice couple weeks. My mom came to stay for a week! yaaay

I just got at least 3 new objects from my wishlist! yaaaaaayyy And hopefully heading up to 4! I love having my birthday a month before Christmas, a month full of happiness. (all photos taken by myself)

The first thing I got instantly was the last book from the Twilight Saga "Breaking Dawn". Yeap... I read it, and I seriously don't give a s#&t about what you think about it. At least I'm not a movie and character freak, like the actual 16 and 17 year old world population. Sorry. No time to explain myself and I don't have to. =)

The nest thing was "Mirror's Edge" and it's AWESOME! The only thing that bugs me out is that after like 20 or 30 minutes playing it, I start to get a bit nauseous. Tiago says it's probably because it's so bright, and the colors are too vivid. And yes, there's some action too, which makes the camera turn around a lot and stuff... Anyway, it never happened to me. I was starting to think I was getting epileptic issues or something similar. Yeck! Hope not... I've been playing Left4Dead 2 and didn't happen. It can only be the brightness.

Faith is THE girl.

The next, final and great thing I got was my new Canon printer! It's soooo efective, I love it! The quality of the printed photos is absolutly amazing, I couldn't stop printing random photographs lol it's insane.

All this thanks, particularly, to my mom ^^

Enough of personal wishing, materialistic stuff. My photography is clearly in stand-by, but it doesn't anoy me at all. I just feel like I've got a lot going on (or nothing at all), and I just don't feel too inspirational. Christmas hollidays are comming = going back to my hometown = new pictures, hopefully ^^


I love them! Sweet and yummy, I can never ever resist them. Do you like strawberries? I really like them but peach still is my favourite fruit. What's yours?
Feel free to use any of the pics above as a wallpaper.

I just feel like blogging about random stuff, everyday, several times a day. I might even start "vloging" (video blog)! I want to get a video camera, a good pocket one, and use it for personal "walktrough", or some kind of therapy. People say it helps a lot. I know self portraiture does... it's my favourite therapy ever.
I starting to realise blogging is a good therapeutical exercise, since you're exposing yourself, in a certain way. Some people blog about emotions, some about work, some about hobbies, etc. It's always something about theirselves. Otherwise there's no point about spending hours around this.
Like my Audiovisual and Multimedia Production's teacher says, I'm already slipping on the mayonnaise, wich means, I'm writing a lot, with practicly no interest or sense. I apoligize for that.

If you're some kind of interested in video bloging and stuff, here's a couple of YouTube channels, from vloging people. The ShayTards (a lovely and funny family, living in LA), and Charles Trippy and Alli (the most awesome couple ever, after me and my boyfriend, of course!).

Internet Killed the Television (Charles Trippy and Alli) -

So, once I get my camera, I'll let you know. I'm looking forward to produce some mini clips, about random stuff. Who knows?

Today I recieved a Birthday Card from my uncle and aunt, and my little cousin and godson Rodrigo!! Everytime I get a card from them it's always fun and hapiness consume me. I love that little guy... He's 6 yrs old, 1st grade, just started to learn how to write and it's so much fun to watch his progress. His mother had to draw lins on the card so he could write his name. It's so cute!


24 de Novembro de 2009

And it's my Birthday!!! 22 loooong years, and I still can't believe how fast the years pass by. Being 22 yrs feels... pretty much the same. No changes at all. Feels good =)

My first present was the most cute little pocket notebook EVER! Got it from my roomate and one of my best friends, Catarina. She was so sweet because she saw me drolling all over the showcase, where the notebook was exposed, and got it for me. I loved it... In fact, I loved it so much that I'm showing a few pictures I just took from it.

I just noticed that I've got this major crush for cute little notebooks. I got soooo many and can't get enough! I will probably start collecting them, I don't know... What do you think?

Take a look at it ^^

It has the cutest mirror in the front.

Oh, by the way, in case you want one too, it's from ESPRIT.

It has laces to close it! Isn't it adorable???
"Yes Marta.... just... STFU with the crappy cuteness!"
I'm sorry... can't resist.

Here's how it looks in the inside.

She got me the pen, which goes along with the notebook theme, also from ESPRIT.

Thank you Catarina!!! Silly picture ahead.


Going to bed now to read more of Eclipse (yeah... Twilight series. I started now I've got to finish.) or just sleep... or try to sleep, since I'm all excited with this birthday stuff.

Polished my nails BLUE! ^^


I feel like changing things around here. Make it less personal, even though its hard for me to keep some distance between private stuff and writing on the blog.

Anyways... I will start my research for a new layout, since I'm getting tired of the old one. I can't wait to find a good one, make some changes to make it more "myself" and write everyday. (There goes the "keep it out from private life out of this" away...).

It's my birthday in 2 days people... 2 days! And I'm seriously freaking out! Because it always makes my wishlist grow up to 500%, I can't help it. And then i get disapointed because I always wish for expensive electronic stuff that I cannot aford. ehhh...

Take a look at my wishlist and accept the fact that I'm insane!

First... some random ordinary stuff I want to get (a.k.a. cheaper things lol)

And now the expensive dream treasures!!!

Canon MP 560 (WI-FI)

Sigma Objectiva 70-300mm

SIGMA Flash EF-530 DG ST


iPod Nano

iPod Touch

JBL Radial micro

Panasonic RP-HTX7

Samsung blu-ray BD-P1580


Nintendo Wii Black

Bamboo Fun A6WACOM

So yeah... it's pretty much it =)
I extend the list untill Christmas, of course!

Check out my new bookshelf! We found this cute piece outside. Someone wanted to get rid of it, but it looked too good to be thrown away so we got it a new place to live. It will get full really soon, I promisse!
Now my living room looks a lot more cozy and warm. It's amazing what a simple piece of furniture can make.

Isn't Super Nintendo the best game platform ever? YES IT IS!!!!!! Classics FTW.
