Oh hello, June, where did you come from?  Seriously how is it June already? I'm going to try and make the most of summer this year - despite everything else being rubbish. I'm going to enjoy myself and have fun in the sun. Sound like a good plan, doesn't it? ⠀

Oh hello, June, where did...

I must admit that I did get bored with balcony/mirror outfit pictures and wanted a more nature/organic photos backdrop. Well now summer is right around the corner, and the sun is indeed shining, and with news that lockdown resections are now easing, I now thought it was the perfect opportunity to go out into the wood and show you this floral Zara dress.⠀
I brought this dress at the very beginning of this year and was keen to show you guys this as I think it a lovely summer dress to wear, plus, I also thought it would go nicely with my red hat.⠀
For someone who has been cooped up, I must admit that it was nice to go into my local woodland and to walk around for an afternoon. I think it was also lovely for Richard, my husband, to pick up his camera again and to take some photos. The whole pandemic has put a pause on his professional photographer profession, and he hasn’t needed to use his camera much.⠀
It was lovely to put on a dress and to make myself look a little presentable. It got me out of my loungewear for an afternoon. The experience made me feel a little more like myself, and it put me in a good mood. As much as I like comfy loungewear, I’m still someone who wants to dress up.⠀
I’m hoping I can go out more this summer, of course still observing the social distancing rule, and doing more outdoor outfit photos. I’m also hoping this summer to wear more of my summer outfit and to feel more like myself.⠀

Usually, when I do an outfit post or picture, I like to dress up and show you some pretty dress. But this time I thought I would show you a few of my casual wear and what I wear on a day to day basis. I must admit, as much as I love to dress up, I wouldn't exactly go to Tesco in them. So on a day to day basis, I'm usually in jeans and a top. ⠀

If I were to describe my style, it would be summed up in two words: quirky and fun. I'm sure you realise by now I don't like boring black fashion – I do fun, bright, colourful style. Case in point is this Collectif watermelon dress. You can't get more quirky and fun fashion than this, can you?⠀
I like my clothes to reflect a lot of my personality, eternally youthful while also quirky and fun. Yup, that pretty much summed up me. The saying, you are who you are by the clothes you wear, really does hold up with me.⠀
I'm still that little girl who had a dressing up box as a child and would play dress-up; now I just have a wardrobe filled with more clothes than I could ever need as my dressing up box. I still like to have fun with my clothes, and I haven't lost that childhood wonder about clothes. And I don't think I ever will.⠀
Overall, what I'm saying is that this Collectif watermelon dress reflects who I am as a person and also my style. I also believe it represents how fashion shouldn't be all serious; it should be fun and should put a smile on a person's face.⠀

October Golden Glow

There is something quite special and beautiful about nature at this time of year. Here are my photos of October golden glow.

We moved into our current place 4-5 years ago, and we only just discovered that 15 minutes away there is a nature woodland reserved area. Why have I never seen this woodland area advertise anywhere? Or even had someone mentioning it? It does strike me as odd, surely I would have noticed a 10-20 acres’ woodland area near enough on my doorstep. It completely opens for public and free to walk in, so why it surrounded in mystery, I will never know.

None the less, we decided to investigate it. Now I’m not going to bore you with how amazing this season is as I have said way too much already.

But what I’m going to talk about instead is camera. You see I majority use a Canon 600d camera, and it still a great camera and my god, I couldn’t live without it….

But, lately, I have found myself ready to move on and to progress my photography skills. So lately I have been daydreaming about using a full-frame DSLR camera.

There isn’t much difference between using my Canon 600d and a full-frame camera, except the latter, has a bigger sensor and viewfinder; hence can fit more things with a single frame.

I have always gone without a full frame camera for many years. The 600d was an upgrade from a 400d, and that again was an upgrade from a power shot camera, and if we go back even further – that was upgradedd from an old film camera. So I never needed a big powerful full frame camera.

I will go on and say that photography has always been my hobby and something I always did for fun. But then again, that how it was with blogging for many years. A hobby. And well…. now it my job, so where does this leave photography?

Still a hobby, but I have learnt one thing since going full-time blogging: photography and blogging do go hand in hand. It’s as important to have visuals – as it to have some words written down.

Which brings me back to my original point, me progressing my photography skills. Richard very kindly brought me a lens for my Canon 600d camera, a 55 mm to 1.8 lens. And I have been loving the quality of photos I have taken. I also made the switched from shooting all on jpegs to using raw files.

But now I want to go even further and start to use a full frame camera.

As some of you might know, Richard is professional photographer. Have been numbers of years and through him, I have learnt a great deal on cameras and various setting.

So he has always used a full frame camera. When I decided I have outgrown my Canon 600d and was looking into a full-frame camera. Guess who came to my rescue?

Richard very kindly lent me his Canon 5d Mark II camera, to use and to get the feel off. Trust me, a full-frame camera is a big decision as they are not cheap.

Which brings me back to the beginning, us visiting the mysterious nature woodland area. To help me get the feel of a chunkier and heavier camera, we took it there to snap some photos.

As you can see from these pictures of October golden glow, I think I have shot some decent photos. Canon 5d Mark II is aimed for outdoor photography so this was an ideal setting.

Despite me loving the quality of photos from October golden glow and I’ve been daydreaming about upgrading for a while; This won’t be my full-time camera as I still like the ease and the lightness of my Canon 600d. Like I said I can’t live without it. Canon 5d Mark II is complex and strange to use. I’m not a 100% confident to use it without my guide.

I think while I’m still learning, I will use the mixture of both cameras.

So which do you prefer shooting on, a camera much like the Canon 600d or do you prefer a full-frame DSLR camera? Or do you just use your phone camera?

    We have a golden glow October here this year. Usually, we get more of the reds and red-ish oranges, I’m not complaining because I love fall and watching how nature transform our scenery.

    I have a DSLR, but it’s a crop sensor. I have been dying to try out a full frame though! It’s on my Christmas list!
