Stripe a pose (#Giveaway)

There are so many things going on today with this post that I don't even know where to start, first I hope everyone had an awesome weekend, mine was uneventful but I enjoyed it very much.
Second I am proud to announce that I have finally started to experiment with the manual settings of my camera for blog pictures, dipping my toes if I may say, and I am so happy, I thought it was going to be so complicated and it would take me forever, but I have taken the plunge and I will keep experimenting, you can see in these pictures, they were not taken at the magic hour or edited (except for cropping) and I think that the brightness is way better than any of my pictures before, if you already walked down this path please do share any advice you might have, specially if you also use a remote.
 Third, today I am the featured blogger on The SITS website, after quite a wait it is finally here, if you are stopping by from their website thank you and welcome, I hope you stay a while.
 And last but not least a #Giveaway, so take a look at the pictures, share some advice with me and scroll to the bottom to find out more about this lovely giveaway.
