Playing Tourist For The Day In My Home Town With Huawei Mate 10 Pro

Playing a tourist in my own town and trialling out the new Huawei Mate 10 Pro to capture our day!

ALL OF THE IMAGES IN THIS POST WERE TAKEN ON THE AMAZING HUAWEI MATE 10 PRO

(Except images of me using the phone which were shot on my Olympus PEN) 

Who else is guilty of this? Rushing around popping to the post office, the supermarket, running some errands but not *really taking in what's around you.

The cool new cafes popping up, the independent boutiques you've been meaning to check out, the new florist that you're dying to pick up a bouquet from.

I'm the worst when it comes to taking for granted exactly what's on my doorstep!

When Amy and I went to Leeds and we told everyone we were from Essex and they were like 'oh cool, that's TOWIE town' and we just wanted to bang our heads against a wall and be like 'THERE IS SO MUCH MORE TO ESSEX THAN REALITY TV', I love where we live and it has some real gems to offer.

So, I decided to spend the day with my step mum, playing tourists in our local town and checking out a lush new brunch spot, picking up some flowers, having a stroll along the seafront and ended with some prosecco and desert (because why not right?!) at our favourite local hotel!

Safe to say we had the D R E A M I E S T day and it felt so good to really appreciate what we have right on our doorstep! What's more exciting is that I got to take the new Huawei Mate 10 Pro along with me to capture the wonderful moments from our day out!

The new Huawei Mate 10 Pro launched this week in the UK and TRUST ME when I say this is something you need to be excited about.  The Huawei Mate 10 Pro is the first ever phone to use a Leica dual camera with f/ 1.6 aperture and it also uses AI to bring an incredibly exiting new era to smartphones.

Huawei today announced that the Huawei Mate 10 Pro is now on sale in the UK. The Huawei Mate 10 Pro harnesses the transformative power of AI to bring an exciting new era to smartphones using AI and machine learning to tailor itself to individuals’ needs and behaviours.

The Huawei Mate 10 Pro has launched with an amazing new campaign called, I Am What I Do which showcases how AI technology can enrich people's lives, so today I wanted to show you how the phone helped enhance our wonderful day out - here's what we captured!...

HOW OUR DAY STARTED: BRUNCH AT TOPPERS & TOAST

Tucking into the worlds prettiest/yummiest acas bowl for brunch! The AI picked up that I was shooting pictures of food and has really picked up on the vibrant colours of our brunch dishes... how impressive?!

Another example of the AI picking up that I'm taking a picture of flowers so the camera can adapt accordingly to the subject you're shooting (it also picks up on cats, dogs, portraits, food and flowers - how incredible?!). I LOVED shooting in the flower mode - the images were SO vibrant!

LAST STOP OF THE DAY: SEAFRONT WALKS, PROSECCO & CAKE!

Roslin Beach Hotel, Thorpe Esplanade, Thorpe Bay, Southend-on-Sea SS1 3BG

After a magical morning having brunch and a stop to the florist for some fresh blooms, we headed to the seafront for a nice walk (aka to walk off brunch!), then headed to our favourite seafront spot, the Roslin Beach Hotel for some prosecco (one glass actually turned into a bottle.. OOPS) and some delicious dessert - the perfect end to our day exploring gems right on our doorstep here in Essex!

Are you excited for the new Huawei Mate 10 Pro launch? Is this a phone you would consider buying for the camera alone? Will you be trying it out?

    These pictures are so lovely! That brunch place looks amaazing and I love how colourful and pretty that acai bowl looks <3 I've actually always wanted to visit Southend-On-Sea – maybe it could be my next summer's seaside break! xx

    Looks like you have a lot of fun places in your home town, and the Huwaei Mate 10 Pro has captured them all beautifully!

    I love Leigh, i’m going to have to check out this new brunch spot asap! I’ve always been drawn to the Estuary but Toppers & Toast looks ace! xx

    Ah, I LOVED this post. My home town is Leigh-on-sea. I moved to Surrey about 5 years ago, and whilst I love it, I do miss Leigh and all it’s gorgeous shops.. as well as being by the sea of course! Toppers & Toast is high on my list of places to try when i’m next back to see my family. My Mum owns Sara’s Tea Garden – you’ll have to check it out when you’re next in Old Leigh!
