So this weeks lust list is a bit of a geeky gadget one! There's so many techy bits that I'm coveting at the moment, I find myself looking up cameras more than clothes these days! Lord knows what's going on. Anyway, I was introduced to the new Olympus PEN E-PL7 Lite at the ME Hotel radio rooftop bar during fashion week, to take part in entering a prize draw to win one. It looks...amazing. It was described as being perfect for fashion week due to it's compact size, and quite a girly gadget (especially in the cream). You can flip the rear monitor down to activate the specially designed 'selfie' mode. There is also a function to link the device to your smartphone via Wi-Fi. It's the perfect 'pop in your handbag' camera, and looks uber stylish. I think it may be a little steep to add to my Christmas list, so I may just have to save up for this one!
Next up is a rather frivolous item that I definitely would love to own, but purely for the prettiness and I really don't need them; the rose gold 'Ella' headphones. I've never really been a big fan of proper headphones that..well..go on your head..mainly because my head's pretty small they usually just fall off! I also don't think I can really pull that look off, hence why I'd opt for the earphones. These are available from Avenue 32.
Next, is the Sony QX100 Lens Style Camera that clips directly onto your smartphone to take more focused and zoomed in images, that you can then view straight away on your phone via the inbuilt Wi-Fi system. Genius, right!? I've had my eye on one of these for a while now, and I think this will definitely be going on the Crimbo list! Much more affordable than a brand new camera, and much smaller and lighter to carry around.
Next on my list, which has been there for years and will probably continue to stay on my list for a few more years, is the iPad Mini. Just because.
The most extravagant item, the Nikon D5300 DSLR with built in WiFi - this I desperately
want need, for Instagramming lovely, professional looking photographs straight from my camera straight away! This would be perfect for Fashion Week and press days where I need to upload images of the event instantly. I may have to save up for this, as I feel it would be hugely beneficial and a long lasting piece of equipment.
Another necessity I feel: the Futurocks powerbank 5000 in yellow. I borrowed a blogger friends at Fashion Week, and it really is the most handiest little gadget ever, that be easily be popped in your handbag. I usually find myself searching for a cafe with plug sockets half way through the day if I take a day trip to London, as the battery life on my iPhone is shocking! This would be much, much handier.
Now I am due an upgrade, and am contemplating to go for the iPhone 6...I definitely like the larger screen and how slimline it is, but may just go for the 5s...we shall see.
This Targus 1920's style iPad Mini case is just my cuppa tea, and would be perfect clicked onto the back of the iPad Mini I so desperatly want!
Finally, a Macbook Air. Ok, so this is the most extravagant piece of technology on my lust list. Which really is just a faraway dream to actually purchase right now, but it's good to dream right!? And for once I'm not dreaming about clothes...(ok...I'm always dreaming about clothes..*sigh*...)
I'd love to know if there's any technology you're desperately coveting?
