My First Blogger Milestone – DSLR!

Hey!

After months and months of research and endless visits to my local tech shops, I have finally pulled the trigger and purchased my first DSLR – I’ve reached it! My first blogger milestone! I am so excited about this purchase and cannot wait to start using it! As it’s my first camera, I wanted something that was quite compact but I also wanted the option of different lenses and a tilt screen. That’s why I opted for the Olympus Pen EPL-6 and I feel that it’s so perfect for blogging and vlogging!

I’m going to keep this post short and just tell you a few features of the camera that I looked into when buying the camera. As I haven’t used it much, I’m yet to form a full review but will definitely review this camera once I figure it out properly! As for now, I love it, and you guys can help me be the judge as most of my photos from now, will be taken with this camera 🙂

Family day out at Kew Gardens

Hey!

Today my faIMG_7362mily and I went to Kew Gardens for the Full of Spice Festival. It was such a nice family trip and something that my mum and aunties enjoyed too, intrigued to find out more about IMG_3408spices.

We travelled to Kew by train and had booked the 13:40 rickshaw ride to escort us around the gardens. The guides were so enthusiastic and the rickshaw’s were so cutely decorated with embellishments from India.

Each of the rickshaw’s had a different spice associated with it – ours was black pepper which was quite fascinating to learn more about, although I was silently hoping for cinnamon (my fave!)! Obvs had to take that obligatory selfie! 😛

We tasted and smelt three types of pepper – black, green and white, astonished by the difference in taste and smell of them all! It was really cool! We even saw peppercorn plants and learnt that they mainly grow in Kerala, South India.

We saw some gorgeous flowers as well as chilli plants growing purple coloured chillies!

Heading over to the Dough Kitchen, we baked some Finnish cinnamon rolls – ‘Korvapuusti’. Here’s a few photos of my cousins and I preparing them!

We left at around 5ish – it’s ladies night so we’re all going out for dinner! Time to go get ready 🙂
