Fun with Lytro!

It’s no secret that our household is one that flies its nerd flag high & proud. So when the Lytro camera was announced a few years back, both LX and I were pretty stoked about its image capture possibilities.

Unbeknownst to me, however, he’s been patiently checking it’s availability in Canada ever since. And yesterday, for my birthday, he quite giddily (and in the manliest fashion) presented me with my very own metallic red Lytro. And, while I’m still learning the ropes, I must admit… it is SO awesome.

What Earrings Should You Be Wearing?

We all know that different clothes suit different body shapes & sizes, and that the same holds true for face shapes and hairstyles. But did you know you can also flatter your face shape with earrings of different styles?

I stumbled upon this fab video, yesterday, that not only suggests the best earrings to suit and complement… it also breaks down how to determine whether your face is heart, oval, round, or square shaped (a handy thing, since I’ve never really been sure, myself. Now I know!)

Take a 10-minute (iced) coffee break and check out this crazy detailed video!
