The Instagram Foodie bag Review

I realise that I have been out of circulation for a while  – well since taking on the role of a carer for my husband and his passing.  He was the foodie of the family and a lot of recipes in my blog were inspired by him.  Cooking for one isn’t fun but thankfully, I have a very supportive family who have been visiting me regularly encouraging me to cook so do look out for my future posts.

As I look back through my blog, I am loving all the recipes but realise that some of my photographs could be improved.  So  when I got sent this Foodie bag from the Paperbag company to review, I got excited.  I take so many photos and realise that often the backdrop isn’t right or the lighting isn’t right.  This Foodie bag also refereed to as the  ‘Instagram Bag’ is a  stylish 12oz black canvas bag with internal pocket, mesh divider and zip closure.  It comes with a 5 in 1 pop up reflector, 8 postcard set with handy tips and  4 photographic backdrops.  All this is perfect for taking the most beautiful Foodie pictures.

What comes in the Foodie bag?
