Back in July, I was lucky enough to go on a trip to Cologne, Germany with Essence Cosmetics for the launch of their Bloggers’ Beauty Secrets range which you can read all about here. We were in Cologne for two nights and on our first night we stayed at the Art’Otel which was all arranged by Essence. We decided to stop for a second night so that we could properly explore the city and we were kindly given a complimentary stay at the Lindner Hotel City Plaza which is just a short walk from the centre of Cologne and 1.1km away from the Köln Dom (cathedral).

When I first started this blog over six years ago, I used to do a lot of Outfit Posts which always went down well. At the time, I had a great place to take photos in my student house and I also had a boyfriend to take photos for me so getting shots wasn’t really a problem. When I bought my DSLR, I also picked up a tripod which was really handy for taking outfit photos but I ended up breaking it last year and haven’t managed to fix or replace it yet. I’ve been thinking about hiring a photographer for a couple of hours to get some outfit shots in a nice location, but it’s really hard to find someone when you have no recommendations – this is where Bidvine comes in handy!
