By we, I mean you and I. But, if you already have all these items, can I just first take a moment to say you’re my gadget goals!?
I do not have a love for gadgets – the basics and I’m alright. It’s pretty bad that I still don’t know how to navigate the cable TV. Maybe that’s the real reason I don’t watch a lot of
So even though I really wanted to try out a new Samsung phone, the thought of getting used to a new setup seemed like such a bother – so I stuck to the iPhone. Now it pretty much looks exactly like my previous iPhone and I don’t quite feel like it’s new!
So if I’m crushing on these, it must be real.
1. The iMac
I’m actually not a fan of laptops. I understand the need, but with newer laptop models, the screen is just quite small and I honestly find it difficult to type and navigate a laptop. I love the wide-screen of a monitor and I love to use a mouse. Although I’ve actually never used a MAC computer, this is at the top of my tech wish-list right now. It’s just so gorgeous and sleek! I can’t tell you much about the functionality but everyone who has it believes that one use and you’re stuck forever! Plus as my friend says, you can’t have the iMac and have an untidy desk. The only disadvantage will be that it’s not movable. So for those days we want to be a couch potato, it’s either we win the battle over indiscipline or we get no work done. What do you think of the iMac? Any good or bad points? Can the keyboard work with an iPad?
2. A Fitness Watch
People, it’s almost like if you don’t have this you don’t fit into the cool kid gang! Haha. But more importantly, before writing this post, I attempted
3. Blue-Tooth Head Set
I’m also not a music person. Weird I know, but that’s a topic for another day. For now, imagine jogging on the streets with a fitness watch. What’s missing? Blue-Tooth headsets of course. I think they’re really cool and on the few occasions that I actually want to listen to music, it’ll be great to have one. Especially because, try as I might, earphones that are supposed to fit into the ears just do not stay in my ear! So I need those that go over the head. But it has to be a bluetooth one because wires = extra hassle.
4. Canon DSLR Camera
World Photography Day was a couple of days ago. If you follow me on Instagram, you know I stopped a random stranger and asked him to take a photo of me. I think I’m beginning to love photos. Although I have a bridge Canon camera, which is arguably pretty decent (used it during our Cornwall staycation which was okay), it’s only human nature to want something higher. So yes, this is the fourth and final item on this wishlist. It probably has to be Canon though. Not sure where this bias came from, but deep down I’m a Canon babe I think. Happy for you to try to win me over in the comments section. If you have a DSLR camera, please could you advise us on it? What’s good, what’s not? Considering that my photography kinda sucks, is it best to attend an online photography class before making a purchase? Well well, this is after
Your turn. Crushing on any of these? If not, what’s on your tech/gadget wishlist? Share with us, you never know what can go down in the comment section. If you’ve got any of the above, please share your experience while we count our pennies, in anticipation.
pS: Just in case you’re a student in the UK, there’s a current back to school promo on some of these items. If you buy a MAC from the Apple Store you get the wireless headset free! Ends 4th of September. And there’s a 15% discount on all Canon products. You’re welcome!

Lol @ counting pennies in anticipation. I don’t have a camera so I can’t advise you on that. My bad photo to good photo ratio is high. I have been known to cut someones head or side off in my photos. I am not a gadget person jare. Took me ages to change my phone and join the Android train. Was forced to finally get one because my blackberry got stolen. Lemme see, maybe an Apple TV sha or watch.

I’m usually not a gadget person as well, so this is strange. An apple TV is pretty cool. We have one but I don’t use it much, so can’t say much about it.
OlakunmiAugust 21, 2016 at 18:22
Haha! I’m a canon babe as well! Lol!And I also need a fitness watch.
favour moyseAugust 22, 2016 at 08:00
Hahahahahaha.. Been crushing on a canon camera since forever.. And a good watchI LOVE YOU BUT
Kachee || KacheeTee.comAugust 23, 2016 at 13:22
Hi 5 for being a Canon babe! A fitness watch seems like a need these days.
Cedar AdinfonoAugust 22, 2016 at 01:06
I’m really crushing on a smart phone right now.My phone got stolen so it been a hustle trying to stay socially active, so it just me and my laptop lol. I’m a canon babe as well, canon is easier to operate compared to Nikon camera. but am looking to buying a mirror-less camera which is more compact. Canon has a mirror-less camera the EOS M series but i hear it can only take 200-250 shots before the battery dies. got any Idea on the best affordable mirror-less cam?
Kachee || KacheeTee.comAugust 24, 2016 at 11:36
Awwww! I hope you get a new phone. I don’t even know what a mirror less camera is – but it seems Canon is def easier to operate than Nikon. Thanks for the comment!
TunrieAugust 22, 2016 at 09:43
Haha! The first line! I was literally asking myself “who’s we?”
TunrieAugust 22, 2016 at 09:46
Haha! My gadget list is the same as yours. Substitute canon for a polaroid camera 😀
Kachee || KacheeTee.comAugust 22, 2016 at 09:48
That’s so weird, because I was actually going to include Polaroid camera as a fifth. Then I thought – c’mon now, don’t take this wishing too far. Lool!
Mz C-meAugust 22, 2016 at 11:24
I am so interested in a polaroid camera….. #CyberMondayWishList….
Mz C-meAugust 22, 2016 at 09:53
Awesome post! Due to the camera quality I have been wishing for an iPhone or maybe the OnePlus Three. I have used both the Fitbit and the Samsung Gear, both have their pros and cons. But right now, I am loving the Fitbit because the battery lasts very long (3 weeks – 1 month) and I don’t take it off at all. Whereas the Samsung Gear lasts at most 4 days after which you have to recharge it and it comes with a screen so you can see how many steps you have taken/notification. The Fitbit doesn’t come with a screen so you have to always check your phone to see how many steps you have taken (annoying for me).eattechtravel.wordpress.com
Kachee || KacheeTee.comAugust 23, 2016 at 13:20
Thanks Simi! Not a fan of the fact that the Fitbit doesn’t have a screen. I use the iPhone 6, but i think it’s just me that doesn’t know how to take photos. Everyone else says it’s amazing!
Toluwalade Toyin-KehindeAugust 23, 2016 at 02:20
All these gadgets look like what you need to join cool kid gang. I am part of the we crushing on these gadgets but I’ll rest in my student budget for now.. Maybe someone can gift me? Christmas is close 😂😂😂www.toyinwithfashion.com
Kachee || KacheeTee.comAugust 23, 2016 at 13:19
As in! Proper cool kid gang. Then once we take fashion lessons from all you fashionistas, that’s it! My Birthday is November and then Christmas, so yes, we love gifts!
PreciousAugust 23, 2016 at 03:11
The fitness watch sounds like something I would love to have. It will be motivating to see how many calories get burned. I’ve never used anything with ‘i’ in it so let me join you and crush on that one. HahaPreciousCore.com
Kachee || KacheeTee.comAugust 23, 2016 at 13:17
Hahahaha. Only got on the iPhone band wagon lately myself. Lots of people on my Instagram use the Polar watch, so I’m really considering. I’ll keep you posted.
Bubu GreenAugust 23, 2016 at 12:16
Crushing on the canon DSLR so bad. I’ve always been a ‘canon’ babe. The Canon Rebel, Canon 70D and Canon EOS 5D Mark series were recommended to me in ascending order of price. I think I’d settle for canon 70D. Let’s hold hands and sing kumbaya as I’m counting pennies with you. Lol. http://www.bubusboulevard.c…
Kachee || KacheeTee.comAugust 23, 2016 at 12:18
Now grabbing hold of your hands tight. Where two or three are joined together… Lol! I’ll check those out babe. Thank you! 😘
AmakamediaAugust 23, 2016 at 12:36
This list wouldn’t have been complete without a canon camera being there. We share a common crush!amakamedia.com
Kachee || KacheeTee.comAugust 23, 2016 at 13:13
Totally! I knew you shared this one with me. It’ll happen by His grace!
AbbyAugust 23, 2016 at 15:46
I’ve had my eye on the Fitbit for a while now. In fact I’m in a competition with a friend. If I get toned & abs by December. I’m getting a Fitbit for Christmas. Now I just need to get back on my Fitfam grind ASAP! And how are you not a music person? 😱😱 Music is Life!
Kachee || KacheeTee.comAugust 24, 2016 at 18:15
Let’s get this FitFam grind babe! I dunno oh, I just don’t know music. Lol!
Tamuno TonyeAugust 23, 2016 at 20:20
I love wish lists, I’m now mentally adding yours to mine. I love canon too, I’m not exactly sure why yet, I may have been brainwashed in photography class. Get a canon 700 d , its what I just got.www.tonyeigbani.com
Kachee || KacheeTee.comAugust 24, 2016 at 11:35
I’ll check out the Canon 700d. Thank you!!
Ijenna OsujiAugust 24, 2016 at 10:10
I always wanted a Bluetooth headset! Since I got mine, I’ve been using it non-stop!I think I’m actually crushing on those Android watches every one seems to have these days.Photography wise, I use Sony. But they’re expensive to fix if anything ever happens to them. I’m not really into mainstream options (not by choice) so I’m thinking if not Sony, an Olympus. My main camera crush would be Lumix G5 by Panasonic though. I want!www.miralabelle.com
Kachee || KacheeTee.comAugust 24, 2016 at 18:14
Ah, Ije your photography love is on another level. But I’m totally looking forward to getting those ear phones!
Uzoma | Don't Touch The HairAugust 24, 2016 at 14:37
I like your wish list, Kachi. I want to try a sports/fitness watch like the FitBit Blaze. It has a screen and tracks Plus, you can have ‘compete’ with family and friends which seems fun. I got a Canon camera (700D) for Christmas and I enjoy taking pictures with it. It’s really stepped my blog photography up. I’m still getting used to taking pictures of myself with it. I also don’t really like using it outside because it can be a bit bulky. I have to carry my camera bag. I wanted to get the Sony A5100 which is smaller and takes really good pics. I think it can also transfer pictures to your phone so you can post it immediately.Don’t Touch the Hair
Kachee || KacheeTee.comAugust 24, 2016 at 18:13
Thank you Uzo! Ohhh. i’ll check out the fitbit blaze, since it has a screen! Your’re the second person mentioning the 700d. Let me go and check it out. Sigh, that bulky struggle. I’ll also really like something that can transfer to the phone immediately. When the pennies add up, I’ll do some more research. Thank you!
DemiladeAugust 24, 2016 at 16:55
Yess, I like laptops but I prefer a table top. Ilike using a mouse too! I really want to try a fitbit and a DSLR has been on my gadget wishlist for ages. Thank you for your comment. xxcocobellablog.com
Kachee || KacheeTee.comAugust 24, 2016 at 18:11
Haha. Pretty similar we are. People think I’m weird for preferring a desktop. No worries, stumbled on your blog a while ago!
CherishExpressAugust 24, 2016 at 23:19
I’m not a great fan of the table top or what do I call it? I prefer something I can comfortably put on my thighs and type on while laying down, hence my preference for laptops. As for the fitness watch, that is a no go area. I bought an elliptical bike to ride at home and it been close to three months yet I haven’t touched it up to 5 solid times.
Kachee || KacheeTee.comAugust 25, 2016 at 00:52
Loool @ table top! Try and get on it more often, you bought it already!
CherishExpressAugust 25, 2016 at 02:15
Didn’t know what to call it o jare. You know this exercise of a thing ees so hard. I wish someone could be doing the exercise for me while I watch TV.

“…try as I might, ear phones that are supposed to fit into the ears just do not stay in my ear!”Finally! I was thinking this was just me o! I always have to end up adjusting them, that can be a real pain. I have been crushing on a bluetooth headset as well! I’m a Nikon babe though (Hehe, I’m not sure why) so that’s on my wish list as well. A Macbook and a new smartphone completes (so that they will not say we are being greedy :D) the list for me.In a very roundabout way, I found myself on your blog and this is the second post I am reading. Your writing is like a breath of fresh air! I love the layout. Love love love. I am now heading to subscribe!https://musingsbyjas.wordpr…
Kachee || KacheeTee.comNovember 26, 2016 at 13:36
Hahahaha!! Not sure how I missed this comment.You’re so not the only one. I think I’m being greedy now because I want a mac book as well, even thought I got the iMac, because sometimes I just want to stay in bed and work!Thank you for your kind words!
