Who's ready for the weekend!?! After this crazy week I know I am! Friday needs to get here already.

So a few weeks ago I went exploring in Denton and I decided to share a few of my fave spots with you guys! Downtown Denton is literally one of the cutest downtowns I have ever seen. There are an unlimited amount of cute photoshoot spots too ;)

The first spot I hit was the Atomic Candy Shop! Seriously you guys it is such an adorable place, they have a little bit of everything in there.

 They had old candies, new candies, funky trinkets, and so much more. I could spend hours in there just looking at everything.

If you have a sweet tooth then I definitely recommend stopping in if you're in Denton, trust me you will not be disappointed ;)

The next stop was Mad World Records. I am a complete sucker for vinyl. I got a record player for Christmas and I have been searching for tons of vinyls to play on it! So obviously when I saw Mad World I had to pop in and see what they had, plus who doesn't want photos in a record shop!?!

After getting my fill of the record store I decided to head over to More Fun Comics! I am actually a low-key geek and I really love comic stores, they are full of things for me to geek out over. More Fun Comics had literally EVERY kind of comic you could ever dream of owning and so many cool figurines and collectibles! If you ever need a comic this is the place to go.

Now I don't know if you guys have heard but Denton has a purple door that people literally hunt down for pictures. I heard about it on Instagram and decided to end my Denton shenanigans I had to find this door.

It's not actually that hard to find honestly and it is so much fun to take pics with! I'm not going to tell you guys where it is because that would ruin the fun of the hunt ;)

Thanks for the fun times Denton and I will definitely be back!

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.

IMG_5705.JPG

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
