Instagram Update

I am gradually falling more and more in love with Instagram. It took me awhile to get to this point with this social media platform because I couldn’t be bothered to understand it. So I neglected it, hoping it would just go away but it looks Instagram is here to stay and it has kind of won my heart at last.

I love photography, and I am always looking to improve my photography skills. I am currently doing a Lightroom course online, and it is opening eyes to the many tricks of editing which I am loving. I am hoping to complete the course in the next few months and take the photography world by storm!

This 2017, I am challenging myself to grow all my social media platforms especially Instagram. I currently have just over 3600 followers and I will like to see that number increase to at least 10,000 followers this year. I also want to increase the level of my engagement to at least 3%, so I have a lot to work on. Majority of my photos on Instagram are taken by me, and I would like to keep it like that, so it becomes my own little portfolio.

I am also looking to get a camera with wi-fi for easy publishing on Instagram. My iPhone camera is amazing, and so is my iPad Pro but I am thinking of getting one of these Compact System Camera, like the Olympus Pen. They don’t come cheap so I have to think hard about whether I am happy to invest that much in a second camera. I have some cameras lying around, I may sell those first and put the money towards a new camera.

Beauty Muse: Selena Gomez

The stunning Selena Gomez is a Beauty Muse. This pretty young woman grew on TV before our very eyes, and has transformed into a stunning beauty muse. I remember watching her on TV – Barney and Friends. She was a cute little girl, and she still has her cute features. She hasn’t lost her baby face yet, she could pass for a teenager easily. I love that about her. Many of her peers are walking around looking 10 times older with all the “work” they have had done already, but Selena Gomez is a natural!

I am not a fan of Selena Gomez’s movies or songs. But I do admire her beauty. I read up some recent interviews she had, and got some of her beauty tips and tricks for your reading pleasure –

 

Worst Beauty Advice She Ever Received

I just can’t understand when—and no offense—people have to wear makeup all the time, and they’ll say, ‘Oh, you can sleep with a tinted moisturizer or a self tanner on your face and you can wake up.’ For me, I just think that’s not my vibe, plus I do breakout. I don’t know if it’s bad advice, I just think it’s kind of to each their own. For me, I can’t really sleep with things on my body or tinted things just because I get worried. It’s not my vibe.

 

I am exactly the same. I can’t sleep with makeup on, but I can apply a light moisturiser.

Her Skincare Routine

I like to have a good morning regimen. I use my Clarisonic in the shower with the Clarisonic Sonic Radiance Skin Renewing Peel Wash. I do that maybe four or five times a week, so my skin has a chance to breathe before all the madness starts. Dr. Dennis Gross Clinical Concentrate Radiance Booster on your cheekbones and around your eyes helps make you look alive. But what’s really great is First Aid Beauty’s Eye Duty Triple Remedy—if you get dark circles, it’s the shit. I’ll put it on, it feels all good and cold, go have a coffee, and that’s the bomb. The Biore Deep Cleansing Strips make me feel really accomplished when I do them, too—plus they work!

 

I like the sound of her skincare routine. It sounds really good. What do you think?
