    what’s in my camera (literally!) bag

    I recently bought a new camera bag. Fine, I got it last year. gosh. It’s adorable and I love it. I got this bad boy at ALDO. I doubt they still have it but you never know what you may find on the clearance rack. Or Ebay. I’ll be honest, it’s not as functional as an Ephiphanie bag (which I have not tried, but am totally willing to. hint, hint), but it gets the job done. What I really like about it is that I probably wouldn’t use it as an everyday bag so I’m able to really separate my everyday things from my play things. Meaning, it doesn’t give me a chance…

    delusions of grandeur

    This past weekend Nicole and I took a trip to Central Park because the neurotic in me was convinced that if I didn’t get there soon, I would have missed all of this year’s beautiful foliage. Like the park doesn’t have enough trees in it’s nearly 843 acres. Here are some photos I took. I used picmonkey to enhance them, but I didn’t really have to. It’s days like this where I wish I lived close enough to call this my backyard.

That being said, I was walking through Walmart and found these cool 4×4 frames. I didn’t know what to do with them, but I bought them anyway. Because, why not? When I got them home I realized that I would have to cut pictures to fit the frame and that’s not something that I enjoy. I went to Google and looked up places…

    Blogtober14 Day 23: favorite photo editing apps

    Oh em gee it’s day 23! I’ve been excited about this one since I first read the prompts for blogtober. It’s “your favorite instagram editing apps/editing tools for your blog”. I only have one, and that is picmonkey.com. I love this website. I don’t usually use it for my instagram pictures; I just use whatever filters they offer. i wish they would offer some more.  Normally, I use it to spruce up the pictures I post here. I also use it to add a watermark to them. I pay to have a Royale membership so I have access to all that they offer. It’s $4.99 a month and definitely worth it. The only thing…
