Hello Loves and happy Tuesday!

This week as promised I’m gonna answer all your questions and follow 5 of you who asked the most creative ones!

Let’s get to it, shall we?

I’m interested to know how your life has changed as your blog has gained momentum? A follow up question would be, is your reason/inspiration for blogging the same now as when you first started? – beauty0bellini

To be honest I feel like it didn’t change at all. Definitely the reason to keep blogging for me is the same. Just because it gives me joy! I’m so grateful so many of you are willing to share it with me and keep reading my posts. I’ve never thought about I could have 3000 people subscribed to my page! It’s insane! ❤

So as this milestone is goals for many fellow bloggers, I’d like to know: What are your tips in regard to expanding your blog following and engagement? Also, how do you get inspired to come up with new blog ideas? – FebruaryCircus

People ask me about the tips to grow a bigger audience all the time. Tbh I never had a plan. Just write about what you truly love. Pictures should be a good quality, that definitely catch an eye. And the last tip would be stay present and connected with the community. About inspiration I’d always write about what I’m into atm.

When did you start your blog and what is your blog’s purpose? How does your blog add value to the world and make it a better place? – Chrissy

I started my blog April 14th as a get away place just for myself. Somewhere I could write about anything I’m passionate about. Well, about making a world better place… I’m not sure it does haha! I just hope I could bring people together and share our interests and hopefully also somehow inspire them.

What motivates you to continue blogging and helps you through writers block? Congratulations!! That is an amazing achievement! – learningbeaut by Ruth Garcia

Thank you Ruth! Definitely what helps me with my writers block is knowing how many people awaits my posts, which is so nice! Also when I can’t write I just think about what I’m excited/passionate about at the moment and then the block disappears, because I find a purpose to make another post. I usually like to plan ahead what I’m gonna write about, so the block is not a very big struggle of mine.

 

All authors of questions above are followed by me! Thank you for your Qs! ❤

How Do I Edit My Instagram Pictures

Hello Loves and happy Monday!

Today I want to share with you how I usually edit pictures for my instagram. For a while I was looking for a best combination of different apps and their features to make all the photos look brighter and cohesive. I wanted to create my IG theme and little did I know, it just came to me with every pic I was editing.

Even though as you can see on my profile photos where changing, all my photos are kept in neutral and warm tone with a splash of contrasting colour in a detail.

I always prefer to take my pictures with the natural light. Usually they look too warm or sometimes even with an orange tone. What I like to do is to use Facetune and with the tool whiten, whiten all the yellow tones off the photo

After Facetune I use the VSCO app to adjust brightness and contrast to my liking. For the effect of an analog camera I like to add some grain to the picture. Usually I keep it between 3-4, but of course the intensity of this effect and other adjustments depend on an individual picture.

And that’s how the fully edited photo look like.

💕 LOVELY FEBRUARY: the Most Beautiful Love Quotes

To continue my February’s love series, today, for the last “love post”, I’d like to share with you some of the most beautiful quotes about love.

To get you in a romantic mood, to inspire, to feel love and give love…

“The best love is the kind that awakens the soul; that makes us reach for more, that plants the fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. That’s what I hope to give you forever.” — The Notebook

“I look at you and see the rest of my life in front of my eyes.” — (Unknown)

“All, everything that I understand, I only understand because I love.” — Leo Tolstoy

“I saw that you were perfect, and so I loved you. Then I saw that you were not perfect and I loved you even more.”  Angelita Lim  

“I choose you. And I’ll choose you over and over and over. Without pause, without a doubt, in a heartbeat. I’ll keep choosing you.” — (Unknown)

“When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.” — When Harry Met Sally

“Because I could watch you for a single minute and find a thousand things that I love about you.” — (Unknown)

💕 LOVELY FEBRUARY: The 5 Languages of Love

Hello Loves and happy Monday!

This month, since it’s a special month when we celebrate Valentine’s Day I decided to dedicate whole February to love. Doesn’t matter if you’re in happy relationship or you’re single and proud atm, those four posts will be for everyone. Because who doesn’t like love? ❤

Every week I’ll also give you one love fact about me. Leave your in the comments!

This week I’d like to start with sharing with you the theory of 5 love languages. Some of you probably have heard about it already, but if you have no idea what I’m talking about, here’s the explanation:

“The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate is a 1995 book by Gary Chapman. It outlines five ways to express and experience love that Chapman calls “love languages”: receiving gifts, quality time, words of affirmation, acts of service (devotion), and physical touch.”

They say it can really improve the communication in your relationships if you find and understand each other’s love languages (your bae’s, mum’s, dad’s, sister’s brother’s etc).

HERE you can take a quiz and find out your love language! The 5 Love Languages® profile will give you a thorough analysis of your emotional communication preference. It will single out your primary love language, what it means, and how you can use it to connect with your loved one with intimacy and fulfilment. Let’s get to it!

My love language is quality time:

In the vernacular of Quality Time, nothing says, “I love you,” like full, undivided attention. Being there for this type of person is critical, but really being there – with the TV off, fork and knife down, and all chores and tasks on standby – makes your significant other feel truly special and loved. Distractions, postponed dates, or the failure to listen can be especially hurtful. Quality Time also means sharing quality conversation and quality activities.

What’s yours? Let me know in the comments!

Love fact about me: I had a few crushes but I’ve truly fallen in love when I was 23.
