GoPro HERO4 Black first impression

After editing video footage from my friend’s GoPro on previous trips, I wanted my own camera to capture my own stuff.

My Nikon 1 J1 is a great camera for pretty much everything, but the bulkiness of it isn’t always convenient if I’m doing activities or worrying about getting water on it. The solution? BUY A NEW CAMERA (not a replacement for my Nikon though). I was able to get a great deal on B&H since they have bundle options that will save you some money. Amazon also has bundle deals as well. All links to these will be at the end of the post!

So here we go! Pros and cons of the GoPro from my first time using it myself! Continue reading

Black, white, & GLITTER!

WARNING: This post contains a TON of gold glitter.

One of my closest friends had a milestone birthday, and I wanted to find a way to make her feel super special. As always, I look to Pinterest for inspiration. I decided to go with black, white, and gold since she wanted a “wine party” and those were the first colors that came to mind.

There were two main things for her surprise gift that made the night. The first surprise consisted of cards that listed things we (her friends & family) loved about her. I was inspired by the popular pin that has helium balloons with photos hanging at the bottom. However, the last surprise consisted of a slideshow, so I didn’t want to double up on photos. Instead of photos, I created gold glitter cards for under $5. The second surprise was a simple table full of gold and glittahhh (glitter).

Onto the tutorials (yay! my first real tutorials!):
