How to set up an editorial photo shoot

8:31 PM
Hello, my sweeties. You know, I always try to stay super creative and make my blog to stand out. But blogging and creating takes a lot of time and energy, and requires finding inspiration. I would love to share with you a few tips for how can you set up an editorial photo shoot. 
  1. Think of the concept. I always looked up what I wanted via Pinterest or Instagram. I'm not looking so much for bloggers' pictures, but more looking at what models/ photographers have done. 
  2. Think of the location. Location is usually a really important aspect for your photoshoot. Of course, outdoors is always best not just for cool places, but also for the photography reasons if  you don't have a photography skills (shooting in daylight and outside is easiest).
  3. Think of the outfit. The outfit can create not only a strong image but also tell the story of your concept.
  4. Hair/ Make Up Style. I barely think of these things because I'm bad at styling my hair and my face. But if you work with professionals, make sure to tell them what you are looking for.
  5. Editing Skills. Luckily, I know how to use certain programs for editing, but I keep learning from Youtube channels like Photoshop Tutorials, Lightroom Editing etc.
Let's turn on your imagination and tell me the story, what we have created here. Best story will be shared in my next post! 




Our Galentine's Day at Salvation Mountain

12:57 PM
Hello, guys! It might a bit late to share, but it's better later than never. This year, instead of celebrating Valentine's day, my BFF Elyse (blogger of Faith In Style) and I decided to take a trip to Salvation Mountain and shoot our outfits to celebrate Galentine's day there. We wore some wonderful outfits that were provided by Lulus, and were lucky that the beautiful Claire Arceri did our make-up. After getting ready, we climbed the mountain and Andrew (her husband) took action to shoot two lovely gals in matching outfits.  Since I have no patience, I decided to edit the photos myself and share with my readers our final team work. 
Salvation Mountain is an art project that is located in the Colorado Desert. If you ever plan to visit southern California, you should definitely check it out. Also, you can donate paints to the organization so they can continue working on this spectacular project that was started by Leonardo Knight, who died in 2014.  I definitely advise you to visit this unique place. It's worth driving there and seeing a sunset on the top of mountain.

Water Front in Seattle during gold hours

12:58 PM
Hello, my sweetie pies. My week have been quite busy and quite boring. Haha. Anyway, this winter we were in Seattle for a bit. I was able to do some touristy stuff. It is always so fun going home. We try to explore the city, because it is growing and there is always something new coming out. This time we visited the Columbian Tower and Smith Tower, but for this photo shoot, we decided to take a walk along the Water Front. And while we walked, of course we got us a cup of hot mocha at Starbucks. I have been wanting to shoot with their legendary red cup for a while. It might be a little late for a Christmas cup, but whatever. Who doesn't love Starbucks? Seattle is famous for rainy weather, but we picked the right day for a photo shoot because it was quite lovely and sunny. This makes me love Seattle even more. I was wearing that day my wide leg denim pants from Storets, along with Boohoo grey coat and Shellys London boots. By the way, how do you plan to spend your weekend?

How to make your DATE special

6:58 PM
Hello, guys! Valentine's Day is right around the corner and we are all thinking about how to spend our date or what to give for your loved one.  I now want to inspire my dear readers for what can you do to make this day special. 
  1. Decorations: Make sure to decorate the room. I found all decorations for Valentine's Day at the Party Store. I went there because I needed a convenient place that would make it easy since they had everything. I was able also to get candies, candles and confetti (We stayed at a hotel in NYC and the poor house keeper probably hates us after we left. Confetti was everywhere!). Anyway, if you are not scared to make your room messy, I would definitely advise you to use some confetti too, just because it will add some extra magic to the atmosphere in the room. 
  2. Dinner Date: Plan a dinner or something to drink. Since we stayed at the hotel, and we could not prepare dinner there, we just went out. I'm not a big cook, but I had a subscription to Sun Basket for almost a year. Their dinner menu is really amazing and can pass as a romantic dinner in case you don't know how to cook. For us, I just grabbed a bottle of red wine and some cookies, along with grapes. 
  3. Sexy Outfit: In my opinion, if you wear something unusual or even a nice classic dress with perfect lingerie, you will spice up your evening. 
  4. Gift:  I always have a hard time on what to give my husband for any occasion, but I know any man would appreciate a relaxing evening after a long week. If you really want to give something, you can always give a watch, maybe something from a men's wear collection, or consider the dinner as a gift. Or, go nuts, and get him a customized tomahawk.
