Part 2 of my Harry Styles Live on Tour post! This one is just going to show you where I went in between my concerts!! Unfortunately I did’nt take as many pictures as I thought I would but I wanted to show you what I did capture! I have a few from Sacramento, Seattle and San Francisco. All places I haven’t been to before. They are all so beautiful I honestly was just taking it all in. I spent barley a day at these places because they were just stops in between or a one day thing but I definitely would love to go back and spend some more time, especially Seattle and San Francisco. I made a little video aka “Vlog” when I was road tripping up there so I will leave a link to that lol. I also want to mention how NICE the people were here and how clean the air was! The weather was amazing and my perfect type of weather so of course I was even more in love! I was happy we made the decision of driving. Something Im for sure going to do again. I hope you enjoy!

Long time no see guys! I know I say this a lot but yes I know its been awhile… How is everyone doing??? I hate leaving my blog for so long, I was always so busy with work and stuff but now I have a little more time on my hands with my new place so I am determined to keep posting more!! Okay anyways this isn’t what todays post is about. I want to share how I edit my pictures for Instagram and for my pictures on here! It took me awhile to finally figure out how to have a “theme” for my instagram page. Believe it or not I actually put a lot of time and effort on it lol. It’s still not at a point where I want it but as for now I’m happy with it. Im going to share not only what I use but what inspires me and how I go about choosing where to shoot. It’s honestly really easy once you understand it all, it just takes time and effort like anything else in the world right!? Lol okay lets get to it!

 

Step 1: What I use

Okay so the app that I use to edit my pictures is an app called V S C O. It’s a very popular app to use on an iPhone or android (I think?). If you like taking pictures then this is definitely something you should have. You can buy presets on there and you just have to play around with them and see which one you prefer for your pictures. When you download the app it already has presets in there that are free so you can play with those instead of buying some.

 

Step 2: Inspiration

 

My most used app for inspiration is P I N T E R E S T. As you know I can spend hours on there lol. But when I started really getting into actually editing my pictures and wanting to make my instagram looking cute and pleasing I started going to Pinterest for my inspo. I have a board on my Pinterest page where I save all kinds of VSCO edits. So if you want to follow me on there (Danielle Willis) you can see that!!The cool thing about those boards too is it shows you exactly how to saturate your picture. How much to use for exposure. So many tips and tricks. I usually use the ones they show on there but I will go in and mess around with the settings myself until I’m happy with it. But it does help if you have no idea what you’re doing because it shows exactly what numbers to put each setting.

 

Step 3: Picking location

So again for picking where I want to take pictures I just look on pinterest or on instagram. Usually I’ll just spot out a cute wall and go pose in front of it lol. But there are times where I’m like okay, I want to go to a certain location for a photoshoot. I think finding a nice scenery/background for pictures is important. You not only want to look cute for peoples attention but you also want whats around you looking chic and cool to. It will make the picture look 10x more pleasing to the eye. Well in my opinion. Here are a few examples of where I typically like to take pictures at. I hope this was helpful! 

Hello!! Ahh okay for starters whats up? How are you? As I’m posting this its march WHAT THE HECK!! I decided I wanted to dedicate a blog post for my 23rd birthday that was back in February on the 17th! Its weird to me that I’m already 23, I don’t know where time went but shoot here I am. I had the best time with my friends and family the whole weekend. I seriously am so damn lucky to have such loving people in my life. They all made this birthday the best with just being there with me. No matter what they make time for me, alway supportive and are a grand ol’ time lol. So THANK YOU to those who celebrated with me. I LOVE YOU ALL SO DAMN MUCH!! Okay sappiness over.. So I stayed out in downtown San Diego, which is by far my new favorite place. San Diego is such a beautiful place I think I found my future home lol. The bars are fun, the people are crazy, the food is great and all the views everywhere are to die for. A weekend I won’t forget (well kind of..oops hahah) at least I have pictures and videos to look back on. Alright now enjoy a bunch of pictures and a little video I put together from videos I don’t remember taking so I thought I should throw them together lol. Oh and happy M A R C H, let me know what kind of posts you want to see this month!

Day 2

Video!!↓↓

Social anxiety, a subject I wish would be talked about more. I tend to deal with it A LOT with different things. I wanted to talk about that today. Not going to lie I was having anxiety posting about anxiety lol. Just because I know people all have different views on it. Whether its mild or severe. We all handle it differently and that doesn’t make us any less or any more. I would like to think and hope that whoever reads about my experiences (which I still deal with to this day) and how I like to handle it, it will help them understand they aren’t alone. When I think about social anxiety I think about it as having tiny little conversations with yourself in your head over and over again. Where I have it the most is being out surrounded by people I don’t know and talking in front of people. I can’t tell you how many times I have turned down my friends when they ask if I want to go out and have drinks at bars. Yes it can’t be fun sometimes but only when I go with people I feel comfortable with or if I’m being honest, getting drunk and I HATE that. I don’t like when I have to have a few drinks in me to lighten up and feel comfortable. When I’m out or before I even get to where I’m going I start to go through scenarios in my head like “omg do I look ok?” “is that person staring at me?” “everyone is judging me” “Is he going to come up and talk to me?” “how do I start and continue a conversation?”. Literally thats what goes through my head EVERY.SINGLE.TIME. Im always afraid of getting left behind and I’m just standing there alone because I don’t know how to communicate with people sometimes lol. Its dumb things like that, that make me just want to stay home where I’m comfortable. Sometimes I’ll be out and I’m not enjoying myself so i’ll come home and cry because I felt stupid. Also talking in front of people I go through the same thing. I have to sit and think to myself, thats not how its always going to be stop talking down on yourself and enjoy life. Enjoy the fun with your friends don’t let something like this bother you and stop you from anything. Im lucky to have friends who actually understand where I’m coming from and why I get like that. They never judge me and always have such great advice for me and calm me down. They are the ones who make me realize that its okay to not always have to go out to enjoy yourself. If being at home or somewhere that you feel comfortable is what you like then do it an they’ll risk it for me. Its hard for me to stay confident with myself all the time and always be positive. Having people like that in your life is SO important. You will learn that not everyone will understand what its like to have social anxiety and thats okay. If you can find people to just vent to and know they won’t hold it against you, keep them. Another thing that helps me to is music. I will BLAST that shit and forget about anything else. Finding ways to calm yourself down from all of the stress you put yourself through helps so much, that is my number 1 rule. Remember to always stay true to yourself, if you don’t want to do things that you know isn’t you and you aren’t comfortable its okay not to do them. You’re not a loser or dumb for feeling that way. The whole reason I wanted to talk about this is because this is an everyday struggle I go through and I always feel dumb for feeling that way. But people tell me all the time that its okay. I have sat and cried all night because I’m 22 and I should be out having fun. But thats why I am picky when it comes to my friends and who I want in my life. They all make me feel comfortable. They get me and sometimes I wonder why they are still friends with me because I feel like I’m the boring one lol. Anyways, I hope this helps other feel better about themselves and that no one is perfect and everyone is always going through SOMETHING.

 

If you made it to the end thanks for reading the thoughts that go through my head sometimes. This is like a big diary for me lol. LOVE YOU ALL!!!!
