Tmart Tripod review

A few weeks ago, I got an email from the staff of Tmart.com, offering me to try one of their products. I didn't know this website before but Tmart is an e-marketplace where you can find a wide selection of products at a low price and worldwide free shipping.

They offered me to try the Tmart 40" WT3110A Aluminum Tripod Parties Jie Professional Tripod, one of the tripods that you can find in the Tmart Camera Tripods section on the website. It arrived well protected and in perfect conditions. The tripod comes in a waterproof fabric bag for easy transport.


It's made with aluminium so it is very light to carry around and very easy to use. Lever leg locks can extend and contract quickly and conveniently.


I usually try to take photos with day light, but this tripod is very helpful when it starts to get dark. When I'm taking photos of street style, once I have found the person, it doesn't need much time to shoot. But for longer photo shootings as for magazines, events and others, this tripod is quite an useful tool.


I was taking some photos the last days with it and it is worthy to make use of it. It's so light that you can't notice that you are carrying it around and you can ensemble it very fast. This tripod is a good option for beginner photographers: light, inexpensive and easy to handle.

Boots for everyone

One of the latest trends I have seen in Taipei is about the ankle boots. You can combine them with trousers, skirts or dresses. Some have a countryside appearance or some are for party. With sky heels or with flat heels. Everything is possible!

In the streets and shops of Taipei you can find boots in all colors, materials and styles, but here I show you the most representative ones:

Flat heel boots: perfect for going comfortable on the day to day, if you go walking from one place to another. Despite being flat, these boots can also make you look elegant, specially the fashionable lace-up upper booties with hollow-out detail or the charismatic low heel booties with buckle and studs. The ones with Dr Martens and UGG style would be for more casual outfits.

                        Dr Martens style                                             UGG style


                   Lace-up booties                                Booties with buckle and studs


Mid heel booties: the suede booties with studs are so pretty! I like that they come with side zipper, but the wedge ones with elastic straps are also easy to put on and off. This type of wedge makes the shoe very comfortable!

High heel boots: with this type of heels every outfit turns into a very fashionable one! The black booties with ankle strap are the perfect combination for any situation, and the burgundy ones give the color accent to outfits in basic colors.

What do you think? Which type is your favorite?
