I was sent the Bossy Set by Glo Up Shop(G.U.S.). They are an online boutique from Dallas, TX, and seriously you guys they have some of the cutest pieces ever!

The Bossy Set is one of my new favourite outfits! I love anything green because it brings out the green in my eyes and honestly they had me at high-waisted shorts ;) Gotta hide the food baby ya know?

I styled mine with a bralette from VS but there are so many different ways to wear it! You don’t even need to keep the pieces together! They would be cute with other pieces in your closet, there are so many options.

I will definitely be rocking this set for days to come and if you want your own you need to check out Glo Up Shop ASAP! While you’re there I am positive you’ll find something else you love ;)

As always if you have any questions or comments feel free to leave them down below or slide into my DMs on any of my socials!

I hope you all have a great rest of your week!!!

What Apps I Use To Edit My Pictures

Hey Gorgeous Babes!!

Last week I took a poll on my Instagram to see if you guys would be interested in a post about what apps I use to edit my pictures and clearly you guys are ;)

I live to please, so lets just jump into this! 

One of my OG and favourite editing apps is definitely PicsArt. They have amazing filters and can also do so many corrections, like acne removal and red eye removal. Everyone should have this in their arsenal. PicsArt is also free which is amazing right!?

I mean obviously Facetune made it onto my list. The blurring, the whitening feature, what isn't there to love about this freaking app?? Just make sure not to overdo it with the blur people!! While not free Facetune is worth the entire $2.99 trust me!

Last but most certainly NOT least is my newest obsession, Afterlight 2! I actually was suggested this app by a fellow blogger babe and ever since I bought it I have been OBSESSED!! The filters on here are gorgeous and I love that you can mix them together to create your own custom filter! Afterlight 2 is also $2.99 and SO SO SO worth it!

When I am editing I usually use a mix of all three of these apps depending on the picture and what all I want done to it. Here are some examples of what editing looks like using them!

I used PicsArt to sharpen this up, Facetune to whiten the wall, and Afterlight 2 to add a brightening filter.

This was just edited using Afterlight 2 and PicsArt. I mostly just had to work hella hard to brighten it and keep it as sharp as possible.

Facetune was used to whiten the tiles on this, then I used a filter from Afterlight 2, and sharpened it with PicsArt.

I brightened this with Afterlight 2 and the filter actually came from PicsArt! Then I blurred it with Facetune.

PicsArt and Afterlight 2 were used on this! Sharpened on and contrasted with PicsArt and then filtered with Afterlight 2.

I hope this post has satisfied all of your curiosity surrounding my editing process, if not definitely leave a comment below or hit me up on any of my socials! Also keep in mind some pictures are taken for me by photographers, especially my modelling ones and are edited for me by the photographers. 

I hope you all have a bomb weekend!!

Pod Hotel Times Square

Hey Babes!

Happy Sunday!! I hope you guys are having a great Sunday Funday so far. I have been spending mine catching up on work and emails after all my traveling last week and weekend. If you follow me on Instagram then you know I was in Toronto and NYC last week and even though I am hella exhausted it was SO worth it ;) Manhattan is ALWAYS worth it. Speaking of, I am so excited to show you guys the awesome hotel we stayed in while we were there.

Pod Hotels has officially become my all time favourite hotel. This was the first time I ever wanted to even spend time in my hotel while in Manhattan. It could also be that I was hella exhausted but I think it was definitely because of how freaking gorgeous everything was.

Lets hop right into the cute lobby because it is SO artsy and unique. I am obsessed! Also, how cute is this magnetic board!? So perfect for the Gram am I right?

Now lets talk about my aesthetic AF room. It deserves SO much love because it was insanely adorable and made this blogger's heart so happy because of all the white everywhere ;) And those pops of red are everything, red is my favourite colour in case you didn't know.

The desk in the corner was so handy especially for working on my laptop because you know a bloggers work is never done! Between the chargers at the desk and the stinking cute charging station by the coat/bag hooks you could charge EVERYTHING which deserves recognition!

The bathroom was really cute and again the white aesthetic, can't go wrong! It was also VERY well lit so doing my makeup was a breeze. In fact the whole room was actually amazingly bright.

I honestly and truly have nothing but praise and good things to say about Pod Hotels. Everything was gorgeous and everyone was so helpful and friendly. I would stay with them again in a heartbeat.
