Part 2 of the Girly Staycation entries!

Remember I asked you to guess why our room was so messy?

It was because we had mini makeovers, played dressed up and had a manicure session!

We all brought our makeup sets over. I had brought over 8 Majolica Majorca eyeshadow palettes amongst other Majolica Majorca goodies. Jacelyn and Fidelis also brought some of their Ettusais stuff too!

Some pictures of the session!

We girls really had fun! Sweet Jacelyn helped Sabrina and I with our untidy brows and Fidel gave Sab a makeover!

My unglam face while putting on makeup!

My final look!

I had told Esther about a marbling technique for the nails and she was so intrigued about it then she decided to do it for us during the staycation!

Some pics!

First paint a base colour..

Drip a few colours in sequence. E.g. Drip white, then pink then purple then white again, pink and purple.

Then using a stick (or a pin in our case), draw a line.

Dip your finger in.

By right, you should have used tape to paste around your nail bed so that it won't stain your fingers. Marbling is really a messy affair! Way easier to just pop by to Milly's for a manicure! :p

We took a crazy loads of pictures that day because I brought a Canon Selphy Photo Printer!

Absolutely adore the G11, I influenced Jacelyn to get one too! Muahahahaaa. It's a great cawhore camera!

We played dress up too! Check out the next entry for pics!

I mentioned earlier in the previous entry that I was suffering from Technolust didn't I?

This is what was getting me all hot and bothered.

Pat Law enjoying a cuppa. Check out the starry background. One of the cameras has that nifty function!

With Claudia and Fidelis. :)

Meeting Canon Ambassador Wong Li Lin.

Sabrina sulking. Probably because she's suffering from Technolust too?

The beauty (Canon Ixus 110IS) that I'm currently lusting for.

It was so horrible at the event! As you guys may know, my Sony T10 is in a horrible state right now where I can only snap one or two pictures because it decides to shut down and I've been borrowing cameras for a while till I save enough money to buy a new camera. Being at the event with sooooo many different cameras was killing me then. It felt as if I was dying of thirst and there was a huge array of drinks infront of me but none that I could drink! :(

Regarding the new range of cameras, Canon and Ogilvy have kindly lent me the PowerShot A1100IS during the weekend where I was gambling in Genting. (I'll upload the pictures next week!) It's really userfriendly and is almost idiotproof and is great for beginners! However after using the Canon Ixus980IS for a while now, I'm totally spoilt by the functions. Check out the fab pics I took of my food in Little Vietnam!

Sadly, I'll be finally be returning the lovely cameras to Canon later and I'll be cameraless for a while. :/ Would have to leech off friends' cameras from now on. Yikes!

Sometimes I really hate attending blogger events or in other words where events bloggers get invited too (If you're wondering how to get invited for events, you may want to check out 24seven.) as every time I go for a tech event, I'll be lusting over the products. Grr.

I know most readers are complaining that they're sick of reading about blogger events, I hear you! So instead of blogging about blogger events, I'll be blogging about what gadgets have caught my eye during those events and why I'm lusting over them! I'll be categorising them under different categories like Mobiles, Laptops, Cameras, Others etc.

Mobiles

I've been having my eye on both the Sony Ericsson Xperia 1 and the HTC Diamond.

Hee. That's me playing with the Xperia! Pic obviously stolen from Claudia. 😛

I first spotted the Xperia with Claudia and Esther at the SE Event and I was fascinated with it mainly because it really resembles a sidekick. After watching way too many episodes of Gossip Girl, I've been lemming for a sidekick.

The HTC Diamond is another phone that I've been lemming for. To be honest, I would prefer the iPhone but I've already have an iPod Touch and as you guys know, I love manicures and long nails and iPhones are a big nono. I've seen the HTC Diamond and not only does it look beautiful, it's pretty nifty.

Argh. I should not be lusting over any other phones right? I already have my Samsung Innov8. Must resist!

Laptops

I've been a Sony Fangurl for ages and it's no wonder that I've been attracted to the Sony Vaio. It looks sleek and is super pretty, only thing that was pulling me back was the price.

Cameras

I've spoken about my love affair with Sony cameras, unfortunately my current baby, the Sony T10 died a few months ago. I've been thinking of getting another Sony camera since after all I'm pretty used to Sony cameras and I have the memory cards.

However... the kind folks at Ogilvy have lent me a few different Canon cameras and I am definitely sure that I want a DSLR!

I've tried the Canon 1000D. The Canon 1000D helps bridges the gap between point and shoots and DSLRs. It's very easy to use and it's at a very comfortable weight for us ladies.

I've used the 1000D to take pictures of Esther and Sabrina at their birthday party and at Bintan during my recent BLR trip and they have turned out great!

But comparing it to the 450D, it actually weighs a lil heavier only but the speed is definitely faster than the 1000D, it also feels less toy-like as compared to the 1000D thus comparing to them both, I would definitely get the 450D.

Aside from that, Ogilvy has also sent over the Canon Digital Ixus 980IS.

I was kind of skeptical over using a Canon P&S (point and shoot) at first as I'm very used to Sony's functions. Surprisingly it's very easy to use and there are a lot of cool functions. Jayden and I were playing with the colour accent function during SMB5 and we even took some videos using it! SMB5 Video will be up later!

Others

I'm also looking for a camcorder, thankfully Daryl will be helping me buy The Flip! Look out for more videos once it's here!

My earphones are almost broken. It's THAT bad. I would love to get new earphones especially the Philips Advanced Acoustics In-ear Headphones. I prefer in-ear headphones as I feel it fits better and it's more comfortable. I've tried these earphones during the Philips event and they're fantastic! There's definitely clearer as compared to other earphones!

I absolutely adore curls and a hair curler would be fantastic for this vainpot. During the Philips event, the kind Loreal folks curled my hair (and the other female bloggers too!) using the Philips SalonCurl Pro Curling Iron and now I want curly hair without perming. Am considering getting a curler.

So many things to buy! :( I wonder if Santa would be nice to me this year. hurhur. What's your gadget wishlist like?

Aside from that, thanks to the kind folks that have lent me products to review, invited me for events and all. :)
