Sequins and Sea Breezes: Weekending With A New Phone

Weekending With A New Phone

11/13/2017


Happy Monday friends! If you saw last week, I had a bit of an incident that required me to get a new phone and after discussing it with my blogger bestie, Biana, I decided to upgrade and get the iPhone 8 Plus. As someone who really didn't want a larger phone, I was extremely hesitant about getting the Plus but I really wanted the upgraded camera so I sucked it up and got it. Within hours I was immediately used to the size and my little iPhone 6 felt tiny and so much more breakable. And honestly, the camera is beyond worth the upgrade. So today I'm doing a good 'ol fashioned Weekending post, sharing all the pictures I took this weekend with my iPhone 8 Plus. 

Friday was my work from home day so I decided to indulge in some Culver's for lunch because Friday is so much better with a million calories.

After work I ran a few errands and popped in for a glass of wine to start the weekend. I also managed to finish Stranger Things 2 Friday, has any one else finished? Care to discuss?

Saturday was for snuggles with my sweet little furbaby while watching UCF bring home it's 9th win of the season! I'm still in shock that we're doing this well this year but I'm not complaining. I'm hoping we're able to keep our coach after the season but with all the rumors swirling around, I'm not counting on it.


After football it was time for some pizza and wine before binge watching The Exorcist to get caught up. Does anyone else watch that? If so, tell me I'm not the only one that thinks this season is crazy?! SO much scarier than last season!

Sunday was spent running errands before meeting up with Kerri for an end of the weekend bevvie and some vacation planning.

  5. Love the pictures from the 8!! I upgraded to the 7 plus from the 6 in June and had the same thoughts that you did when transitioning. Within a day or so I couldn't imagine my life without the 7! haha!! Enjoy it :)

  6. Ok so I've felt the same way about upgrading (not wanting the bigger phone, but wanting the camera). I've just been waiting for some kind of a deal through Verizon which doesn't seem to be happening. The pics are great and I agree--Fridays are WAY better with a million calories lol

  8. Congrats on your new phone. I love having the plus phone. My old eyes need the bigger screen. haha. It does take great pictures. I don't think I could even go back to a smaller phone. Although, I do get annoyed when it wont fit in my pocket but its so worth the little inconvenience.

  9. I still feel awful that my text sent your phone down to it's resting place, but everything happens for a reason. Your new phone takes amazing pictures, and that one of Novie is a framer! I finished season 2 of Stranger Things last week and have that now what feeling. Cheers to a fabulous week <3

  13. I just upgraded to the 8 plus too a few weeks back after being adamant about staying with the smaller size, and I completely agree! It does not feel big at all now and the camera is SO worth it!

  15. Yay for new phone/camera! We were too impatient to wait for the 8, so I got the 7 plus instead a few months ago. The camera is SO good. Ready and willing to discuss stranger things! :)

  26. I really want to upgrade! I have the 6 have the same reservations about getting the 8Plus (don't want a big phone) but I guess better photos makes it worth it....
