Tips For Looking Great In Photos

People sometimes tell me “you’re so photogenic so it’s easy for you” but in reality, that’s far from the truth. In my short year of blogging, I’ve learned some tricks for looking my best in photographs. I’m by no means an expert, but I’ve been taking mental notes and going with what works.

This post is in the hopes that we can get away from the “skinny arm” pose…yes we know what you’re trying to do and…no that’s not the only way to look decent in a photo. But we’ve all done it.

Without further ado…here are my 10 secrets to looking your best in photos.

Friday Fizz: When the Weather Is Constantly Changing

In my neck of the woods, the weather can’t make up it’s mind. I find myself checking the forecast a lot to prepare myself. One day it will be 10 degrees and snowing, then rainy and 40, then sunny and 60!

I put together some items that I think will work for this fluctuating weather madness.

Tan & Burgundy in the NorthEast

I finally went for it and got the face treatment I’ve been really wanting to do. It is called microneedling. The purpose of it is to try and smooth out the acne scars on my cheeks.

Since my face is still kind of red and bruised from the treatment yesterday, I’m posted up at home and working on website things.

Weekly Refreshment: CoverGirl So Lashy! BlastPRO Mascara Review

I love trying out new beauty products! As someone who is always trying new things, it is hard for one product to really “stick.” Because if it doesn’t work well the first time, it’s always “on to the next one…”

And that is ESPECIALLY true with mascara.

Caribbean Cruise Photo Diary

A tropical vacation is always an absolute dream. I love looking out at the Caribbean (or whatever body of water I am near) and losing myself in the waves. A little sunshine, rest, and soaking up island vibes always puts me in a splendid mood.

Dan and I went on a four day Caribbean cruise between Christmas and New Years. We decided to go with the Celebrity Silhouette, since we know it is reputable, and the price was right.
