New camera!

I’ve finally joined the Nikon crew! I was looking for a new camera to start my vlogging and after scouring the internet, high and low, I settled on the Nikon D5200.

Now I seriously understand the struggle that most bloggers/youtubers go through when choosing a new camera… There’s such a large range of cameras out there with so many functions, it seems impossible sometimes to choose just one. After reading MANY in-depth confusing reviews I found this Nikon DSLR to be the best bet. For all those wanting a new camera I’ll give you some key points that helped me decide on this camera.

  • Picture and Video Quality – when making Youtube videos and blogging, quality of images and video is key. This camera is 24MP and also records HD videos which is great for both OOTD’s and vlogs.
  • Usability – with a camera you want to be able to basically ‘point and shoot’ a photo but it’s also good to have manual control of specific features so that those with some knowledge of photography can use this camera as well as newbies.
  • Structure – with a DSLR you expect to have a heavier camera than say a compact digital or a bridge camera. However this camera is the perfect size and weight and also has a swivel screen so that even your selfies will be on POINT!
  • Price – Cameras nowadays can range from a hundred pound to a couple of thousand pounds! So when choosing a camera I feel it is good to combine high-end features with a good price point. This camera costs around £250-£320 so is at a good price point for a DSLR.

I can’t wait to start using this camera properly and be churning out some amazing OOTD’s! I hope this post helped you in narrowing down the millions of cameras out there to choose from. Please comment and subscribe, I would love to hear from you!

Versace Menswear Spring Summer 2016

So, Versace recently revealed their menswear line for the SS16 season. It seems as though the designer has definitely taken inspiration from the Persian/ South Asian culture, with the long shirts which are more commonly known (in the Asian culture) as ‘kameez.’ The Arabic music played at their fashion shows brings in an exotic and international aspect to their line.

Versace describe their collection as that of “Desert mood and tones” which is clearly represented in their choices of beige and red colour choices. The designer has gone for a more ‘relaxed’ fit in their clothing to suit their brief of this collection being for the “man who is an adventurer in what he wears and also in his travels”. The choice of soft, flowing fabrics look extremely comfortable and the addition of double-breasted blazers and ties, bring in a western feel to the looks.

I feel as though their new collection is definitely going to be a hit with the eastern countries as Versace have tweaked fashion styles that are already present in the east. However, it seems as though the designer may struggle in Europe and some parts of the U.S.A as this new line could be thought of as feminine due to the fabric choices and shirt lengths. However long t-shirts have suddenly boomed in the fashion industry so there is nothing stopping Versace from re-inventing menswear clothing.
