After many months of feeling left out re: Instagram, I’ve upgraded to a Samsung Galaxy S5. It didn’t hurt that the week before ordering it a commercial for the gold Galaxy S5 was playing on every Hulu break, and I heard ‘galaxy’ repeated over and over as I was watching [the most, most excellent] Cosmos.

I held out for a long time as I was hesitant to spend the extra dollars on something so dubious as a data plan. After all, constant connectivity doesn’t interest me at all, more the opposite. I would rather not be permanently available, and don’t tend to miss the world of media when it isn’t at my fingertips. But. Well. I do really want to play around with Instagram. And it will be nice to be able to check when the bus is coming.

Black S5 with white Otterbox Symmetry case and kiss decal. The profusion of available phone cases is astonishing. 

 The kiss detail* I added, which is more or less the logo for my life, lipstick and kisses being my favorite things.

*I am great at making lip imprints like this, incidentally. SWAK evidence. My imprints are shapely and generous, picturesque (though also, I suppose, in a certain sense, unsanitary, gross). Hard to say when this will ever be useful.

Here is my wallpaper, the continuous exposure to which is maybe the best part so far. Penguins. Balloons. Cuteness.

And, while I find selfies often tacky and egomaniacal, I cannot deny that I myself am not infrequently tacky and egomaniacal…

I suspect this is a slippery slope.

Any apps you recommend?
