Hello everyone! Thank you for all your sweet emails and comments for my eventful week post. I appreciate them so much! Everything is back to normal now, everyone has been healed and I’m in a really good mood today. It’s the start of Made Me June and this month, I’m gonna be dressed in a made-me outfit everyday, whether it is a dress or a top/ bottom combination. And my aim is to NOT wear the items in my “go to” list immediately but have a mix of old and new, a mix of favorites and those I have worn five times or less.
My hubby is an avid reader of my blog (He’s probably the only man lurking around here 😛 ) and he has been talking about getting a new camera for better quality pictures. So after months of research, he has acquired a new Canon camera and I’ve been playing around with the new toy. What delight it is to be able to capture clear, focused images without the annoying pixelated effect. It even comes with a remote control so I can press on a button, get myself in focus and snap away. Ingenious!
Obviously I am still not very good with it. To ensure that I get more practice out of this more advance machine compared to the automatic cameras I’ve been using, I will be attempting something new with Made Me June. I hope to snap each day’s outfit with either one of these random things in the background: flowers, water or playground. Why such randomness? I’ll be more motivated to go outdoors to hone my ‘self-portrait’ photography skill with these easy enough to find items. So, no white walls this time round!
In terms of posts, I intend to update daily or every two days. Having done weekly updates for March, I found that I would have forgotten many details by the end of the week and I have an innate tendency to procrastinate. However, I did enjoy the format used for my updates so I’m sticking with that. In addition, I hope to showcase a pick of the week- my fave outfit from the MMJ Flickr Group at the end of each week-probably something I feel very much inspire to sew for myself 🙂 Every Friday, some of the participants will also attempt taking a photo of themselves doing the same action, so I might just join in for the fun of it! How exciting!

I just compared this dress’ photo with the initial post and noticed that the purple floral on the fabric hardly showed on the photo taken with the automatic camera. It’s much more obvious here!
