My Wish List - if money grow on trees......

Wednesday 24 March 2010
Things I dream about.....

I'm a gadget girl but I wish these weren't so expensive.

1. Canon 70-200mm f4 IS USM L series lens
Takes insanely sharp and crisp photos. At £925, it should perform miracles too!

2. Canon 50mm f1.4 USM lens £298
Perfect for portrait and macro shots.

3. Canon 18-200mm EF-S f3.5-f5.6 IS lens £462

Nowhere near as sharp nor the colors as vibrant compared to 70-200mm lens but for the zoom, I'm willing to put up with its weaknesses. This will solve my problem of constantly needing to swap lenses.

4. Canon 5D II Mark Camera £1799
Amazing camera! I can always dream....

5. Hermes Cape Cod GM Watch
I've only ever worn one watch - a Tag Heur, the cheapest range. I'm no watch aficionado but this chic watch really appeals to this particular rocker chick wannabe

6. Samsung Netbook NC10
This is fast becoming a necessity so that Steve will leave my Macbook alone. Just the right size and weight for travels.

7. Vince Cropped Motorcycle Biker Leather jacket
I've lived in my olive MNG leather jacket for the last 6 years. If I could get a £1 for every person who'd asked where I bought it from, I would've easily afford the Balenciaga jacket. No one believed it was from MNG which at the time cost £60. I'd love to get a black version.

8. Panasonic LX3 Compact Camera £316
This is one of the best compact camera in the market. Performs better than Canon G11 which costs a hefty £280 more. It has a Leica lens and is comparable (in fact, it looks identical to) Leica D-Lux 4 but at £316, it sure is heck a lot cheaper than the red dot (£599). There are times when I'm plain tired of having to lug around my heavy DSLR and numerous lenses.

9. James Jeans Hunter Addiction
I've worn James Jeans for years - mostly bootleg and straight leg cuts. I've recommended the brand to friends and strangers after being complimented on many occasions. However, UK is cold and wet. So, I need a pair of jeans that I can tuck into my flat riding boots. These are so flattering and the stretch fabric makes it very comfortable. For ladies like moi who do not have a flat tummy, these are high rise so no more muffin top effect. Unfortunately, the retailers here seem to think it's OK to add a premium to the exorbitant prices of American made jeans. I'm a firm believer of NOT paying retail so until I get them at a heavy discount, this shall remain on my wish list.
