Pretty Jewelry Purchases

Hello lovelies! I hope you are all having or had a good day, depending on when you read this. I wanted to share with you all some some little treasures I have and love. Below are some earrings that I found on Etsy from a shop named Always Anchors. I love the appearance of Druzy stones, and even those these aren't real, they are so pretty. I highly recommend this shop. Customer service is great as well as the prices.   

Next are these bracelets that are so simple and cute. I found these at target for 3 dollars each so I figured I may as well get them. These can help add a touch of sparkle to a plain outfit.  

Its's funny how simple little purchases can made my entire day!

Have A Wonderful Day!

Tips to Take the Perfect Selfie

With all the social media and technology we have access to, selfies are becoming more and more popular. Trying to take the perfect picture can be time consuming and frustrating. This is where I hopefully can give you some advice so your pictures turn out lovely! 

1. Natural lighting- Stand in front of a window that has plenty of sunshine coming through. You don't want too much sunshine so having a curtain will diffuse the light and prevent shadows. 

2. A nice background- I always make sure the background is nice and clean before taking a picture or else it becomes a distraction. 

3. Practice different angles- In the mirror, tilt your head to different sides and see what looks best. You may find you like a certain angle more than another. 

4. Chin up-  Make sure your chin is lifted so your face appears thinner, and it can prevent you from creating a double chin. 

5. Try different filters- There are so many apps that have great filters to enhance your appearance. My personal favorite is afterlight. Try to only use a few so the photo doesn't become unnatural.  

These few simple tips can make a huge difference. If you have any other suggestions, feel free to comment below!

Have A Wonderful Day!
