Decluttering 101

I’ll admit it.. I am a horribly messy person. Especially when I am busy, my entire room just seems to become such a cluttered mess. Up to a few years ago, I was always horribly sentimental about everything I owned, whether these things were clothes, small items, or other types of junk. My mom always joked that I was a hoarder!

I’ve been using this particular set of edits for a while now, and I must say that I really like this theme. I think it’s one of my favorites! Even though it’s kind of wintery, I think I’m going to keep it a little while longer. At least until I figure out how I want to do my spring/summer theme.

How I Edit My Photos

Hello lovely readers! Recently I put a poll on my Instagram asking whether you would want me to show you how I edit my photos. Well, most of you voted “yes,” so today I finally deliver! Of course, the way I edit my photos depends on my theme at that moment. Right now, I am going for a heavy fall look, and my editing process is on the long side. I use a grant total of four photo editing apps, which are: • VSCO • Photo Wonder • Snapseed • Afterlight I have the paid version of VSCO and Afterlight,…
