First off lets start with my room because it was gorgeous! Everything in there was totally chic and modern. I loved the vibe SO much, it was one of the most aesthetic rooms ever. Another cool feature was the tablet that let you order room service and read about all the amenities that the hotel had to offer!

Hotel Alessandra has an awesome gym that you have to check out if you stay with them. They have the newest, nicest equipment and I loved the refreshment area that they had stocked with cold water and towels. They even offered bottle Fiji water for you to take with you while you're actually working out which I loved!

Of course they have an AMAZING pool because how could they not!? There are tons of spots where you can just lay out and work on your tan or there are even loungers in the shallow end that you can relax in if you don't feel like diving right in.

If you are in Houston I HIGHLY recommend staying at Hotel Alessandra. The location of the hotel is absolutely stellar. You are right downtown H-Town and are also only blocks away from Minute Maid Park, the Toyota Centre, and the House of Blues. You couldn't ask for a better location!

There are officially only 7 days left until I leave 21 behind for 22 you guys! And being the extra AF girl that I am, I decided to go all out for 22 and do a Taylor Swift 22 music video inspired photoshoot!

A lot of you already know, especially if you follow me on Twitter,  that I am a DIE HARD Swiftie. Taylor Swift will literally, forever be my #WCW. The love started the moment I heard Our Song on the radio and has been growing ever since.

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!!

Xoxo,

Alex
