JUST A GIRL AND HER (MISTER) DONUT // OFF TO FANCY SUSHI IN GINZA

As you know, E and I just got back from Japan. Before departing, E surprised me with a Canon EOS Rebel SL1 DSLR. BEST. PRESENT. EVER. While there is definitely a bit of a learning curve with a DSLR, I am so happy with the quality of all of my photos. I took about 1,500 photos, not including iPhone photos. There was so much to see and I wanted to capture it all.

While the SL1 is the smallest DSLR on the market, it is still heavier then my regular point and shoot. I needed something to carry it in so it didn’t have to hang on my neck the entire time. Many bloggers that I follow had reviewed the Lo & Sons Claremont camera bag. I figured I would give it a try. It doesn’t look like your typical camera bag. It actually looks like a regular purse.

This bag was our saving grace throughout Japan. It was able to hold my camera, two additional lenses (one pancake and one telephoto), my Prada wallet, our Global Advanced Communications Pocket Wifi, our Japan Rail Passes, snacks, two additional SD cards (in the SD slots), and last but certainly not least, Kirimi (our little sushi friend). Not only did it hold our entire lives, it is so chic too! It is also really light on its own. The only real weight is what you put inside of it. I got compliments on it from everyone we met. They were all so surprised that it was a camera bag and that it could hold so much. My husband was even impressed and he very rarely comments on my handbags!

I would recommend this bag to ANYONE who has a DSLR and is looking to take it with additional lenses on vacation. I have been using it since getting back as my everyday purse. It doesn’t always have to be a camera bag does it?

**I paid full price for my Claremont bag. Lo & Sons did not pay me to use it and review it. These are all my own thoughts and opinions.
