Walking In My Wedge Sneakers

The Wind of Inspiration Outfit of the Day Post  - “Walking In My Wedge Sneakers” (American Eagle Outfitters Top, Asos Holey Cardigan, Free People Skinny Jeans, Steve Madden Hilight Wedge Sneakers, Eileen Fisher Shoulder Bag, H&M Animal Print Scarf, Asos Oversized Retro Sunglasses, Black Colored Stone Stud Earrings, Sinful Colors Professional 1062 Leap Flog Nail Polish)

Remember I was hunting for a pair of good wedge sneakers? I did it! I bought one!
Here they are my lovelies! I chose number 12 in my list - Steve Madden ‘Hilight’ Wedge Sneakers. I’ve worn them several times already and no regrets, no complains at all! Extremely comfortable and stylish wedge sneakers. What do you think? Do you like them?

On another note, these pictures were taken during my recent trip to Canon Factory Service Center in New Jersey, which is, by the way, neverending two hour drive from my place, because there is no such center in New York. I had to go anyway because I needed my camera and lens to be cleaned.

Just in case you ever need this service too, keep in mind that:

1. You can either mail your gear or drop it off in person, the latter is the fastest way. The same with the way back. You can either pick your gear up or it can be mailed back to you.

2. If you are not entitled to any coverage under warranty any more, the simplest cleaning of your camera censor will cost you around $30. Believe me it’s totally worth it, because you cannot always get rid of all the specs yourself if you got any.

3. Such sensor cleaning takes about one hour, so you can wait for it to be done and bring the camera back home the very same day.

4. If you need the deep cleaning of your lens, for instance, there is a grinding sound when you move a focus ring, and maybe not just cleaning but also some parts replacement is possible, then, if you are not entitled to any coverage under warranty, it will cost you around $300. It’s pricey but it has to be done as soon as possible if you want a long and prosper life for your lens.

5. If you’re in the same area as me and going to drive there, it's good to know one tricky thing about the location. The official address of Canon Factory Service Center is 100 Ridge Road, Jamesburg, NJ 08831. The nearest highway access is NJ Turnpike Exit 8A. However, some GPS can’t find this address. The solution is to use Dayton, NJ, instead of Jamesburg, NJ. Or just use the coordinate N40°22.430' W74°27.570', which will bring you to the parking lot.

Thanks to my warranty (by the way, I also purchased an extended warranty plan which is always a good idea when you buy an expensive gadget) I didn’t pay anything and everything was done very fast. My camera and also my other lens (the one without any problems with it) were cleaned within an hour and my other lens (the one with the grinding sound; luckily there were no any serious problems with it) was done within a week including shipping time back to me. Now all my precious treasures are even better and cleaner than when they were brand new and I’m extremely inspired to shoot more and more and share the beauty of the world around us with you, my gorgeous readers.
