Wednesday Wishes!

I can't believe that it's already Wednesday. Seriously, i have no idea where the time goes. I can't keep up with time at all anymore. It's so so sad.

But, here it is Wednesday Wishes!

1. I bought some brand new OPI nail polish yesterday. I painted my nails last night, and they're already chipped. Totally freaking chipped. Luckily, i found the bottle of polish at a thrift store, so it only set me back .50 cents. I've never owned an OPI polish, because i'm SUCH a cheapo. But, now i'll never buy any! So, i guess i wish my nails weren't chipped!

2. I've had such an off day today. Nothing really went wrong, but nothing really went great. It was just so blah. And everyone was really getting on my nerves. So, tomorrow i wish that i have a much better day.

3. After developing other people's film all day, every day, i've decided i'd like to buy a Holga or a Diana camera. I don't know anything at all about either of these, so i wish i had a lot more knowledge on toy cameras. And i wish you fine people would educate me! I don't even know which one i'm leaning towards. I just know i want one, because i love how pretty film can be. And i know that these cameras can deliver that.

Which one?!


4. I wish that i could save up a few more dollars to finish up my half-sleeve! I have been really dying to get tattooed lately. Well, i always want to get tattooed, but i really want to right now because my stupid boyfriend keeps getting awesome tattoos.

that's all for today guys!
xoxo, kara


  1. I can attest to OPI- it doesn't really chip for me (though I use Chip Skip underneath it / also from OPI)
    Oh, and this coming week I am doing a tutorial on how to light leak proof a Holga!
    Both are pretty similar and a Holga is cheaper to learn with.

  2. I have a Holga and I love it! I don't use it that often but it's fun to do the double exposures and different color flashes. The only down side is it's 120 film and most walmarts around here have to send it off and it takes a while to get it developed. Lomography makes a Diana mini that's 35mm so that may be easier to develop.

    Also, I can't wait to get a tattoo! I still have a few months but I'm so excited. Which shop do you prefer in Somerset? Or do you go somewhere else? I know some who are die-hard Bodean's fans and some who love Body Language (like me).

  3. This has NOTHING to do with this post (except that I wish your wishes come true).
    But do you remember when I asked people to write things for my Senior book and you wrote something for me? I had seriously never gotten around to printing them out until a little bit ago. But when I clicked to get to yours, it said that it wasn't available anymore. :( I would really enjoy having it in there, if you still have it somewhere? :)

  4. i just got a holga 135bc and i love it :D

  5. Courtney- I'll be sure to check out your post on Holga's. I'm very interested!

    Shea- In the past, i've gotten all my tattoos at Bodeans. Personally, i believe that they're one of the better shops in town. But, i'll be getting my tattoos from here on out at Quality Custom Ink by Nate Corder. He just opened a shop in somerset, and he's phenomenal. I definitely recommend. Also, i work in a photo lab so i was wondering which camera would be easier to process. so, thank you for the information on that!

    tarah - i'm sure i have it on my photobucket somewhere. leave me your email and i'll send it to you if i can find it.

    bootchacka - thank you! i'll keep that in mind.

  6. I've heard of Nate. My friend Jamie just got a piece done by him before she moved away and it looks really good. I'll have to find his shop and compare prices and all that when the time comes for me to get another one.
