How to “Fix” your Portraits with Face Cam iPhone App

BA1

When I first came across the Face Cam App for iPhone on iTunes it came highly recommended and as I love a good photography App I decided to pay the $0.99 and try it out. The features looked promising and I was excited by an app that seemed quick and simple to use. However I really wasn't expecting how completely unrecognisable the photos could become with only just a few tweeks (their Photo Makeover App is even worse) so I thought I'd share with you the things I love (and disagree with) about ...

Inside My Studio

STUDIO_2012_danimezza-4

It's been a long time since I last posted about my studio, so much has changed in that time so I thought I'd give you all a bit of an update. The studio is right next the the lounge room, across from the kitchen and far away enough from the bedrooms that I won't disturb the boys when I'm doing my night owl thing. This is what the room looks like when you first walk in... "eclectic" is an understatement. On my door I have a poster I made using Instagram photos (post coming soon), my trusty ...

Surreal or Real, Vogue Italia

VOGUE_IT_#738_FEB2012_BLOG

Two hours ago I was just going about my usual, domestic Saturday activities. Steve left me to sleep in while he and Aidan had fun at swimming lessons. We went to Aldi and bought milk. We did laundry, Steve mowed the lawn and I changed the sheets on all the beds. Aidan went down for a nap so I opened my laptop and got to work pinning some of my favourite curvy fashion blogs but I didn't get to finish. I was interrupted. I caught a glimpse of one of my images from the Gisela Ramirez collection... ... [ Discover More ]

When it comes to fiddly geeky blog stuff I don't really know what I'm doing, sure I could use Instagram till my hand fell off, I can update facebook like nobody's business and I can Pin like a pro but when it comes down to the nuts and bolts of building a blog and keeping it top notch... well that's when I'm glad I have friends like Liz from Lizosaurus. She loves cats and dinosaurs and knows her tech stuff. She also has an uncanny way of explaining the most complicated things so that even I ... [ Discover More ]

My Rough & Tumble Dude

BigW-Dani-Final-cars

Sponsored by Nuffnang  Last week I shared that BigW had sent me a $100 gift card to buy Aidan some new clothes (keep reading for the chance to win one for yourself!) and that we had gone out and picked up two spunky, affordable outfits that will see him into the cooler months ahead. What I didn't tell you was that the best part of all was yet to come! BigW had organised for Rachel Devine, a commercial children's photographer to meet us at a special location for a mini photoshoot with ... [ Discover More ]

Save Your Skin with Vaseline

The lovely people at Vaseline sent me (and three of my family members) a small pamper pack in January designed to moisturise, protect and freshen up my skin. They asked for the opportunity to share with you some information that you may not be aware of when it comes to your skin and in return, one Danimezza reader will win a year's supply of Vaseline Aloe Fresh Daily Body Lotion SPF 15+!!! My skin cancer check up is next week so I thought it would be a timely reminder for all of you to ...

Rough & Tumble BigW Style

Sponsored by Nuffnang Last week was rough, actually the last few weeks have been. Our little family is adjusting to changes, we're growing, exploring and quite often we're tired too. I'm still getting used to my domestic routine and spending more time with my camera, Steve's trying to deal with new work challenges and Aidan is determined to do absolutely everything all by himself. Each of us is requiring a little more patience and a little more time to breathe, to play it cool. It had ... [ Discover More ]

Paddle & Kick

Aidan_Swim_2012_danimezza-2

Aidan started going to swimming lessons again with Steve as his support person. He was nervous at first but as soon as he saw the water he was so excited. Steve was a little nervous too as he's not a great swimmer but you couldn't tell. You couldn't wipe the smile off their faces. It made me happy to see them so happy. Aidan was always the first to face a new challenge. I loved swimming growing up and I can see it being a big part of Aidan's childhood. I was sad I wasn't his ... [ Discover More ]
