We love Instagram as much as you do and we think that it is truly a remarkable way to share your holiday photos! There's no doubt that your holiday photos from your SweetEscape session are Instagram-worthy. But great photos aren't enough. Follow these tips and tricks for a rocking Instagram account!
Even though Instagram is all about sharing photos, captions are as important! It is true that the saying goes a picture paints a thousand words, but nothing could tell a story better than verbal communication that are spiced with tiny little details of the situation.
Let’s say you are posting a photo of you when you're having fun in London. Instead of just posting a caption that says “London, you rock!”, try talking about the interesting moment that happened there. The ambiance, the weather, or how you feel during that shot was taken. Happy? Excited? Let them know!
Much despised, with huge advantages is the usage of hashtags! You don’t have to be famous to use hashtags, in fact, if you want more people to see and like your photos, the use of the correct hashtags is very much important. What are the stuffs you into? Traveling perhaps? Then do a little research on the Internet and find the most used hashtags that relates to traveling on Instagram. The most used hashtags means a lot of people are viewing it to find inspiration and ideas. By using that popular hashtag, you are opening doors for idea seekers to find you and your creation.
Even with the new Instagram algorithm, posting at the right time is still as important. The algorithm will hold your post for as long as a few hours and if you post it on a deserted Instagram time, you won’t be getting much feedbacks from your followers. Avoid posting on Saturday nights where people are all out having fun with their friends and forgetting their Instagram timeline. Plus, if you post anything on Saturday night, it could show how plan-less your weekend is.
Last but not least, don’t forget to edit your photos. There are many apps to do this, such as VSCOCAM or Snapseed, but if you aren’t much of an editing guru, simply leave it to us! Sweet Escape captures your holiday photos and EDIT them as well. You won’t need to do more editing since we have the best editors with the best Instagram taste in our headquarter.
Now that you know all the tools of the trade, don’t forget to use #SweetEscapeMoments as one of your hashtags to get a special giveaway from us. From now on, don’t forget to post like a pro!
Food scene in Sydney is beyond words. There are tons of place you should go to get a taste of the city. Figuring out what and where to eat can at times be challenging. But we couldn’t be more thrilled to share with you a recommendation from one of Jakarta’s most influential food blogger, Hans Danial, who blogs at EatsAndTreats. He’s pulled together a list of his top restaurant/café recommendation in “the Harbour City”. Read on to learn about them.
181 Enmore Rd, Enmore NSW 2042, Australia The family-run gelato and coffee bar won the best gelato in the world! The place has many adventurous flavors, from miso ginger to coconut mango, it’s going to be a hard for you to decide which flavor to choose. Affogato and pistachio are Hans’ favorite from the place he claimed his most favorite gelato in Sydney.
9, 37 Ultimo Rd, Haymarket NSW 2000, Australia A famous Thai street food and noodle bar, serving their best-selling noodle soup, which is extremely hot and absolutely delicious. Try Moo ping skewers aka pork neck skewers, they’re charred to perfection, super tasty and great texture. For Hans, visiting Do Dee Paidang is a mandatory, especially when all he needed was a delicious Asian fare.
547 Bourke St, Surry Hills NSW 2010, Australia It’s the coffee place you must pay homage to if you’re a coffee aficionado. Everything’s expertly crafted. His favorite is definitely the soy cap. It has the perfect taste, creamy texture, simply one of the best.
7A, 2 Huntley St, Alexandria NSW 2015, Australia This place is known for its homestyle food and specialty coffee in a former pie factory with brick walls and an organic garden. The Grounds is gorgeous, for sure, and always packed. Make sure you come early (and hungry!) for their signature dishes like Berry Hotcakes, which, according to Hans, he had so many of them during his days in Sydney because they’re that good!
68 Sir John Young Cres, Woolloomooloo NSW 2011, Australia A small cafe that combines sweets and flowers, Petal Met Sugar creates too-pretty-to-eat delicious dessert. Everything here is so Instagrammable. Just look how pretty their Terrarium with lupicia jasmine tea panacotta, yuzu gel, strawberry crisps, chocolate soil, edible flowers and lemon balm.
