Smile for the 7th wish...

I still remember my first digital camera, I was so excited to get it and use it, it had a tiny screen and probably only had a 2 megapixel image sensor. Don't we just love how things have evolved over the last two decades? You're probably thinking, why are we even talking about that? But my point is, going back in time, we had to buy analogue cameras and film, and wait sometimes days to see the photographs we'd taken. Digital cameras certainly took the hassle out of shooting memories. Although it also means that we don't keep boxes and boxes of family and childhood photos to look at every now and then (and then laugh at each other's hair cut or dress style going back ten years.)

So, why don't we break the digital rules just a bit? 

Today's Christmas wish is for nothing less than a Fujifilm Instax Mini - cute, fun, and a treat to whoever receives it as a gift! Perfect for the special occasions that you want to document then carry around with you (the photos are the size of a credit card!) or put in your memo board, fridge, mirror, wall, wherever you want!

You may have to practice your best pose in the mirror before taking that shot, but it'll all be worth it for the fun you'll have. How spoiled are we that we get to take the same selfie twenty times if we want to anyway, just because the lighting is not perfectly highlighting our cheekbones or that smile is pretty close but not quite the perfect smile yet. Being spontaneous is great fun too...
