Checking off my Wish List and Buying Big!


Necklace: Elodie, Bracelet: Amelie, Earrings: Cleopatra (I wear these daily!), Clutch: Tia Cross Body

I am beyond excited. Less than five minutes ago I placed my order for my very first apple computer EVER. I have always been a Dell girl, mostly because they are half the price. But seriously, I have had horrible luck with every one I have ever owned. My laptop in college had to get a new mother board within the first year. If you aren't a computer tech type person (which I am not), this is equivalent to open heart surgery for a computer. They literally had every single piece of my computer's insides spread all over my kitchen table as they replaced the main board on the inside and then popped everything back in. I also use Dell for my work computers, and I have killed two of them. At my last job it took less than a year before my computer showed me the blue screen of death. They then got me a new Dell laptop, but it didn't work quite right either. I ended up with two computers that one their own didn't quite work right, but together they sort of passed off as one whole computer. So I actually had TWO laptops that I would use depending on which program I needed to access while they tried to sort everything out. Needless to say, I have not been impressed.

Now that I am FINALLY getting my first apple computer, I have been dreaming big for months. I've been holding off on getting PhotoShop because I knew my current computer wouldn't be able to handle it. Now I can finally get it, and I am so excited to see what I will be able to do with the image editing features. My friend actually referred me to a place that lets you lease PhotoShop for $9.99 a month, rather than buying your own license. I think I may check that out. I like that it automatically updates your software anytime Adobe releases a new PhotoShop version. I'm also excited to use the video editing features that my new computer will have. I've been wanting to post a video on here FOREVER! But again, my current computer wouldn't be able to handle it. I can't wait to say HI to you all!

So what did I get? I ordered the MacBook Pro with 8GB of memory and a little over 250GB of storage. The memory should be enough that my computer doesn't bog down when I try and work with videos, and the storage should be enough I can keep lots of photos on it. I can always archive to an external drive if I need to, but I think I'll have plenty of space for a while. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to run to the store and pick up my new computer.... OMG I AM SO EXCITED!

PS - Can I get a heck ya for purple lipstick?? I am obsessed. More on this later...
