Internet Rant

Outfit deets: 
* Talbots top which I purchased in Florida at TJ Maxx for $14.99 and seen here in my shopping recap post
* Bongo pants which I have owned for at least three years and am finally wearing them... last seen here with booties and here with stripes.  I seriously didn't wear these for years, they sat in my closet, brand new and I remember thinking, 'I love these pink pants, but they are a little"out there" for me to actually wear'.  In fact, I thought that as I purchased them, but boy oh boy am I glad I did!
* Aldo wedges which are from 2007 but my second pair as they went on super sale at the end of the season so I scooped up another pair (hence why these look practically brand new; they are!).  I used the first (well worn) pair for a cool studded DIY project (you can see them here in action).
* Jewelery:  Auslini bangle which was a birthday gift last year from a friend that is my favourite, Pandora bracelet and a ring from The Bay.  

I've been having some serious Internet issues.  So serious I haven't posted in two days which frustrates the hell outta me.  Wah wah. 

But seriously, my blogger account has run out of juice...er...space to hold photos (has this happened to you?!) and now I have to use Flickr, which isn't that bad except I can't seem to upload my photos to Flickr when I'm at home... and I can't do it from work because, hell-o, I'm working (and the the site is blocked) so it's been very frustrating.  

On top of that, the Internet connection I have been pirating in my apartment building has recently been locked and (woe is me) I have been forced to get a connection of my own.  I'm using my iPhone to tether the connection to my laptop and as it turns out, the connection isn't what you would exactly call lightening speed.  

However, I can't complain as it is faster but I can complain about Blogger, Flickr, my lacking graphic design skills and the weather (I know you melted all the snow, Mother Nature, and you're awesome but could you send some warm weather this way, please?).

Rant over.

A couple fun Instagram shots below.    ...because I'm obsessed.

I love your pink pants, & your high bun. & about the blogger photos, that happened to me few months ago, I just bought more space, I think its $6, for like 10,000 photos, or 1,000 photos. Hmmm, 1,000 makes sense.

Hi Amanda,
I might be able to help.
Btw, lovely as usual.
Couple of things about tethering.
if you have applications running in the background, that can cause the phone to act sluggish.
quickly double press the action button (used to minimize apps).
You will see your screen move up and app icons on the bottom. Hold your finger on one of the apps and all of them should have X's in the corner of each. close them by touching each X. Or you can what is called Hard Reset. Hold your Power button on the top of your phone and the action button together, eventually it will shut off. Power it back up and your in business.
What provider are you on?
I have an Iphone4 on rogers and at times my phone switches from 3G to edge which really kills my connection. Look at the top left and you should see a 3G in the corner. If you don't, then you should shut off your phone as Mentioned previously. Unless your provider does not have 3G or higher service. Then that would suck.

Sorry for the long winded message,I hope you find it valuable.

BTW, you look beautiful as always...

Have a great weekend and Happy Easter..

Oh the internet....such a love/hate relationship. I too, ran out of space. Bought more but am going to use a website as well. :/

LOVE your bun and loving following you on Instagram :)

Oh I hear ya, I filled up my maximum allowance of photos about 3 months into blogging so I long ago had to feed them in through a feeder site. Just an extra step I suppose.

And Blogger has been weird lately, I keep getting errors when I try to comment people!

Maybe go to a coffee shop in the interim to do your posts???
