F A Q
how did you get started with blogging?
i initially just wanted to learn how to build a website and i was a lot more interested in that side of it, as opposed to full-on blogging. in the first version of my site, i included photos i had taken (not of me), but people were wayyyy more interested in my blog, so i pivoted*
*thank you college for the fancy term
how do you take / edit your instagram photos?
i currently just use whatever edits i’ve made for my blog posts, which is a preset in Lightroom. i used to use VSCO exclusively and the photos definitely look similar to that. i made a post about it, which you can read here.
in regards to what i use to take my instagram photos - i currently use the photos i take on my DSLR (keep scrollin for that), but i used to just use my iPhone 6 (i am the worst at upgrading to the newest iPhone model).
how do you edit your blog photos?
i use presets in Lightroom. if you are just getting started, i would recommend buying a set or two from FilterGrade and then tweaking them until you develop your own (get it.. Lightroom, develop.. ha).
what do you use to take your pictures?
i use a Canon 6d and a Canon 35mm lens.
how did you get your pink hair?
i used the Kristin Ess Temporary Tint - it was super easy and fun. read more here.
where do you shop?
Revolve - my favorite brands are House of Harlow, For Love and Lemons, Lovers + Friends, Show Me Your Mumu, and BB Dakota
Nordstrom - mostly BlankNYC, Topshop, Rails, and BP
for hats - Lack of Colour
for jeans - Paige, Joe’s, and Express
is thirteen your lucky number? why is it “lucky 13?”
when i was writing my very first blog post, i had no idea what to say so i thought i would make a numbered list and then just fill in the blanks. my lucky number is 17 but that felt like way too many, so i shrunk it down to 13.
