IPAD V KINDLE

I read a lot of books but of late I haven’t been reading as much because I think the books take up space in my bag. I miss the days where I finish reading a reasonable sized book within a week in between going to uni and work. So I have been doing some research on the kindle and ipad 2.

At first I only wanted an e-reader (kindle) just to read books but now I am interested in an e-reader with access to the internet (wifi & 3G). My boyfriend thinks it’s a bad idea getting an e-reader with access to the internet because I wouldn’t read any book but would spend all my time on the internet instead. 


According to the research i’ve done, the internet on the kindle is basic and might not work on some sites since its main purpose is meant to be an e-reader, while the ipad 2 which i intend to use for leisure really; blogging, shopping, games and maybe take to lectures and seminars in uni, functions better with the internet since that is what it was built for.

I am really torn between sticking to the kindle just for reading books or to get the ipad 2 and get the leisure of the use of the internet. Or should I get both and enjoy the best of both worlds...

If you have either what are your experiences so far? I would really appreciate your input.

LOVING: ELF STUDIO GLOSSY GLOSS

My MR.ELF treated me to some ELF glosses just before Christmas. I love ELF Cosmetics as they offer value for money but they do not hold back when it comes to quality. I do own a few products from Elf but this post will be about the new studio glossy gloss (well not so new anymore). When I first received them I was afraid they might be a bit sticky but they weren’t which is a plus for me as I hate sticky glossy.




Left-Right: Sweet salmon, Berry blush, Wild watermelon, Dragon fruit

They are well pigmented and smell nice nothing overpowering. When it comes to lip glosses or lip stick I tend to stick to neutrals and pinks (am gently injecting colour in my life). The lip glosses have a brush applicator which I find ok to use the only issue I have with the brush applicator is when you stick the brush in the tube some of the brush push backwards and this creates like a fly away which am not fond of. But over all I am loving the glosses and intend to but some of the glossy gloss.
