Cozy Up With prAna

Cozy up With prAna

If there is one thing I have learned from being a "fashion blogger" for a few years now it is that not all outfits are practical, comfortable or even functional. This one on the other hand is the exact opposite (minus the heels - even if these are my comfiest pair). When it comes to my day to day style comfort is key for me especially being a student which is why I was so excited to receive this outfit from prAna and even more excited to put it on and not want to take it off. In fact I am wearing that cozy sweater as I type this in bed (lol). 

What is even better about these clothes though is that they are doing their part to help our environment by showing love to this planet with fair trade and hemp certified products. To me this is the cherry on top! You can get 15% off any items on their site or be my twin in this outfit with the code 'MHMF16EMWA'

Happy Holidays!

      Happy Holidays you guys!! I never got a chance to say happy Thanksgiving but I hope you all had an amazing day with friends, family and loved ones! Now that Thanksgiving has flown by it is finally time for me to get my very first Christmas tree and I couldn't be more excited!! I have been listening to Christmas music nonstop lately - there is something about getting older that makes me love this Holiday season more and more!

    I wanted to share an early Holiday look with you all with one of my prized possession - my ZAC Zac Posen bag! I was so lucky to be sent this bag to style for you all and I couldn't be more smitten (I think I love it as much as I love Stella....) This is the perfect item to add to your wishlists this year, but hurry because they are selling out fast!! Happy almost December and happy holidays! xo

Who What Wear for Target Vest

The other day on a random trip to Target I stumbled upon this vest from the Who What Wear collection for Target and I couldn't stay no. Not too shocking though because every time I find myself in Target I walk out with arms full of stuff I don't need but just haddd to have! I love the color of the vest and it matched my Nikes perfectly so while I am not one to go all out monochrome (unless it is black) I do love these two pieces together!

How to (easily) Edit Instagrams Like a Pro

INSTA.jpg

       I get a lot of questions from people about how I keep my Instagram feed to "perfect". The reality of that is it takes a lot of work and practice to figure out how to have cohesive images that create one theme on your feed. It also means there are a lot of fun images with friends and family that I don't always get to share in order to get my feed looking cohesive. I wanted to share how I would take a typical image and edit it to fit my bright feed and share some tips that hopefully you guys can use on your own! These aren't always the exact steps but you get a general idea of the apps I always use :) (ps. follow me here if you so desire)

1. Instagram

Because my feed is so white and bright my first step is always to crank up the brightness on my image. Call me crazy but the only app that I think does this without making my image a blurry mess is Instagram! You can see just how good of a job it does from taking my dark picture to something I would post. Honestly, you could stop here if you wanted but I of course take it further.

2. Facetune

Ok, don't freak out but I really do LOVE facetune. Not for the reasons you make think though. I use facetune for three main things 1) Detail which is what I did in this case. The detail took is perfect for eyes and hair to make them pop. If you look closely you can see the difference between our hair in the two images. 2) Whiten this is my secret weapon any creak or kinda-white wall gets a big hit of this tool! 3) Smooth often times iPhone images that are edited too much create a pixelated look and is not cute on things like arms and legs so I use the smooth tool it give them a nice finish! 

3. A Color Story

If I am putting a filter on my image this is the only app I trust. I find that putting this "lite bright" filter from A Color Story on my pictures is the best finishing touch. It also helps in the grand scheme of things to keep images looking cohesive on your feed. This app also has other great filter options for when you want to have a warm, cool or really any tone image. Easy to use and inexpensive upgrades!

And that's it! Not too crazy but it really works! Hope you guys got enjoyed this post xo
