Hey everyone,

If you follow me on Instagram, you will know that I’m just back from two days in the South of France with Princess Cruises. It was such a fun few days exploring vineyards, tasting all things French and touring the amazing Royal Princess Cruise ship (where I took these photos) I vlogged the trip and can’t wait to show you every inch of this beautiful boat on my YouTube, hopefully I’ll have that video up tomorrow.

As usual when I go away, I got a million and one photos 😊

One of the questions I get asked most often is what camera I use to take my photos, and what apps I use to edit them. For a long time I only used my Olympus Pen EPL-7 camera when taking photos (and I have used it on this post for some of the photos). But thankfully I have found a phone with a camera just as good as my actual camera, it’s small, easy to carry and has made my life so much easier – the Samsung S8. It has a 12MP rear camera and a 8MP selfie camera with an autofocus. It really is amazing – there is no comparison to the iPhone camera which I switched over from last month. It has a huge infinity screen which is great for viewing photos (and watching Netflix) which is another big plus!

App wise there are 3 I swear by: VSCO cam (for filters – my fave is the A5), Snapseed (for lighting adjustments) and Facetune (for detailing and colour fixes). I also use the built in filters on the Samsung S8 – they give a gorgeous effect and have my photo ready to go in a simple snap. Lastly, I use UNUM to plan my photos before I upload.

You can have the best cameras in the world, and the dreamiest background, but if nature wants to mess up your photo by blowing the hat off your head – there is absolutely nothing you can do about it, but laugh. Which is exactly what happened while Lauren and I were taking these photos haha. Notice there is one photo without my hat! I must make it to Bershka ASAP to buy another. My playsuit is also from Bershka, glasses are Dior, bag is Gucci and sandals are River Island.

Anyway, I’ll be back tomorrow with more details about the cruise ship and my trip,

Stay tuned,
