I don't know if it was the Easter spirit or the separation anxiety of being away from flowers or what, but this happened and I'M SO EXCITED about it!
So I have decided to dedicate 1-2 weekends out of a month to creating DIY Fashion pieces to exercise my creativity and love for designing things. Now I've always been the one to think big and run wild with my imagination. About 2 weeks ago, I thought about how "right on time" it would be to create a statement jacket of flowers resembling a fur jacket.
I'll be the first person to say, I'm not a morning person. My boyfriend wakes up, hops out of bed, and can start the day immediately. I need to get up, get my coffee, sit in bed, sip the coffee slowly, and ease into my day. When I first started my current job, I would wake up at 5:30am and not leave the house until 7:20am. Now I look back at all that sleep I lost, and I'm actually a little sad about it.
Did you ever get asked the question, tell me about yourself? If you have, then you know the many of things that come to mind that you want to blurt out all at once. Or, you truly can’t think of anything off the top of your head haha. Today, I made a vision board (well I got a little creative with the “board” part)! A vision board, in my opinion, shows what you want or need in life, your dreams, your inspirations, your beliefs, your struggles to overcome…it shows who you are. If you look at my vision board, you will see all the things that make me! This vision board was such an easy D.I.Y. and it cost me under $25! If you want to know how to make one yourself, keep reading!
If you are considering creating YouTube videos or social media tutorials, the first piece of recommended equipment is a ‘ring light’. Ring Lights provide an EVEN amount of light for your background. They illuminate the subject in focus and give a soft but bright finish to your photos and videos. These things can really get up there in price! I have personally seen them range anywhere from $75-300, and honestly I still plan on getting an official one, but this will do for now. Here’s everything you need and all the steps below for creating your very own ring light.
