Pandora's Guide To Fake-cationing

It's the craze taking Instagram by storm - and Pandora's got your 4 step guide to fooling your friends in to believe you're on a dream holiday!

We've all been there - sat scrolling through your social network feeds and seeing nothing but smiling friends on holiday.

Well now it's time to stop being jealous and start to have a little fun - this is #Fakecationing - posting fake vacation pictures!

All you need is your phone, a screen and some creativity! Our very own Pandora presents her 4 tips to taking the best Fakecation photos.

Tip 1 - The "Legs By the Pool" Shot

"This one's easy! All you need to do is find a picture of a nice sunny spot, bend your first two fingers and snap a picture on your phone. If you're wanting to pretend you're tanned, hotdogs are a great substitute for fingers!"


Tip 2 - Accessorise!

"Nobody will believe you're on a sunny beach if you're not rocking some designer shades! So the next time you're watching holiday TV shows, why not jump in front of the screen and grab a quick selfie with your sunglasses on?"


Tip 3 - Think of the climate!

"Nobody will believe you're skiing when you're wearing a teeshirt - so remember that your outfit should match the holiday you're on. It's a bit chilly under the Eiffel Tower, so remember to wear a jacket!"


Tip 4 - Get your friends involved!

"Sometimes it's really difficult to take a selfie, especially when you're trying to strike a pose - so don't be afraid to get someone else to take the photos for you! After all, you don't want them to think you're on holiday on your own, do you?"
