Ubud photography + some exciting news

Whilst being here, in Ubud, I have suddenly found a love for botanics and plants. The villa we are staying in is simply beautiful. (To rent via Airbnb click here– the host is amazing; if you are ever in Ubud, stay here!!). The white walls and the outdoor bathrooms make for the best Instagram photos. There are plants everywhere; it has made me realize that I am a sucker for leafs and plants.

Like a lot of the houses in Ubud: they bring the outside in. There are marble bath-tubs and marble sinks that overlook palm trees and fern leafs. In the morning, all the doors are open and light beams in.

Staying in Summer Moon has forced me to be a lot more creative with my photography. I thought that I would share with you my photography tips, how I take my photos and how I edit them/ the apps I use.

The equipment I use: 

-For the majority of my pictures, I will use my iPhone 6s. It provides great quality and I always have my phone on me. The best camera is the one you have with you. Therefore, it is the easiest way for me to capture my shots. I like to save all my inspiration for my pictures on my phone (e.g from Instagram or Pinterest), so it makes it easily accessible to refer back to them! However, making your own inspiration is an even better idea.

Top 5 straw bags

Whilst being here in Bali, I have come across a large number of straw bags. Fortunately, straw bags are the “it” bag to have this season for every girl. So, I though that it would be more than appropriate to list my top 5 favourite straw bags.

I like straw bags that are different to the traditional ones we see at markets on holiday in Europe.

Here are my top 5 favourites:

Bali has been my dream for so long-every time I scroll through my Instagram feed I always come across dreamy photos of luscious palm trees, white sandy beaches and sensational views. All I ever talk about is how much I would love to go to Bali…In December, I booked my trip to Bali and anyone who knows me would say that I am nothing but excited and slightly obsessed!!

This is the first post of my “Bali travel series” (this is the start of a series that will continue on my blog whenever I travel) and I have split it up into three sections: part 1, part 2 and my complete guide to Bali. I aim for this to be a regular feature on my blog, however, as much as I would love to be, I am not always traveling!

Summer dresses: The ultimate guide

Summer has already started; the frantic search for dresses to wear on holiday continues, once again. I think that I must have tried on every single dress possible in the whole entire world! But, does dress shopping really have to be so difficult?

For today’s blog post, I have created five different categories of dresses. The first category being: Beach dresses/ cover-ups. The second category is mini dresses, the third category is maxi dresses, the fourth category is printed dresses, and finally, the fifth category is evening dresses. This post will give you the inspiration that you need to go out and buy your perfect dress for summer.

Category 1: Beach dresses/ cover-ups

Personally, flattering beach dresses are increasingly hard to find nowadays. I am not particularly into  traditional kaftans, I find them uninspiring and unflattering. The best coverups are those that are dainty and sheer. All they require is a pair of lace up sandals and a glass of cold rose overlooking the beach. They have to be somewhat practical, but nevertheless stunning and one hundred percent Instagram worthy! I have pulled together my favourite beach dresses/ cover-ups that are perfect for those lazy beach days spent by the ocean.

  1. Privacy Please striped dress
  2. Valentina beach dress
  3. For Love and Lemons dress
