HOW I BLOG

PLANNING
Before all my posts are published, I write all my new ideas in a notebook - I just love writing lists! I develop my ideas further by planning what photos to take, how I'd edit it and when I would do all of this. This is the same for my YouTube videos too! I spend a lot of time getting inspiration from magazines and Tumblr. I try to write my posts beforehand, and schedule them for the future. Unfortunately, I have moments where I do last minute writing (I hate it so much!). You can really tell a difference between planned and rushed posts.

PHOTOGRAPHY
I usually use my iPhone or camera to take my images. I'm not that happy with my camera and currently trying to save up for a Canon, which is hard being a 16 year old girl who works once a week - I'll get there! In my bedroom I have the 'white theme' going on, so I use my furniture and wall as my background. I love minimalism and simplistic shots. I use natural lighting AKA the sun. If it's not shining through my windows, I like finding places outside and in town, it always makes photos look more creative and the lighting is great - wooh! I probably take 13583903 photos and upload two that I think are the best.

EDITING
For the editing part, I use Adobe Photoshop Elements 8 or if I want to do a quick, simple post I'd use PicMonkey (it's really easy and free!). I don't do that much editing or adding effects as it washes away colours. But I like cropping, making collages or increasing brightness/shadows. Auto correct is a lifesaver the get washed out colours back. I'm thinking of doing a 'Before and After' post which shows my edits very soon!

Do you have anything you live by when writing your posts?

  3. I'm probably one of the least organised people when it comes to my blog. But I think that I really need to start planning my posts as I'm on a strict time frame and sometimes I'm just staring at a screen with a blank mind as I've forgotten my amazing sentence that I wanted to start my post off with lol. I use the sun a lot but I think I'll be buying a few extra bright white lights to help with the winter time x
