As a blogger in a city that isn’t Los Angeles, I get a lot of weird looks from people when I am taking blog photos in public. When I first started blogging, those look from people would bother me so bad, I wanted to stop taking photos and go home. Now I could care less about what people think of me, especially when I am posing to get that perfect shot. In this post, I am going to share 5 tips on how to feel more comfortable when it comes to taking photos in public. If you are someone that is a beast when it comes to taking photos in public, then congrats, you’re winning at life.
My first tip is to remember that you most likely won’t ever see the people that are staring at you again. If you ever happen to run into them on another day, there is a good chance that they are not going to remember you.
Take someone with you that you are comfortable around. With them encouraging you, it makes it that much easier to smile, take a great photo, and have an amazing time.
Try to start out somewhere that doesn’t have a ton of people, but still in public. For example, go to a park to take some photos, compared to a coffee shop downtown. Ease your way into it.
Practice makes perfect! The more that you go out in public and take photos, the more comfortable you will feel.
My last tip is just to have fun! Remeber that you are taking these photos for you and your audience. You’re not taking them for the random person walking by. You are obviously passionate about these photos, so anyone else’s opinion shouldn’t matter, so just have fun!
I hope that these tips helped you out a little. I would love to know any tips that you have, leave them in the comment section!

As a blogger, I don’t always have the money to fork out to try a new product. I spend my money on bills and other important stuff that I usually forget about in a month. If you are a blogger that is just getting started, or an Instagrammer looking for collaborations, I have discovered a new app that I think you will love.
I don’t remember where I saw the add for this app, but I am glad that I did. Muses App is a community of bloggers and companies looking for people to collaborate with.

There is nothing that I love more than a Friday morning!
Okay I lied, I love amazing beauty products and a couple fashion pieces. Here are a few that I have been loving lately. Enjoy.
First things first, foundation! I cannot get enough of this new foundation from Maybelline. I have repurchased it twice and it’s still considered a new product. I am so in love with the SuperStay Long-Lasting Full Coverage Foundation. I get so many compliments on my skin when I wear it!
To go along with that amazing foundation, I have been obsessed with the Ghost Baking Powder from Revolution. I bake every day and can’t get enough.
Lately, I have preferred glossy lips over matte. In my bag, I have the Pixi by Petra LipLift Max Lip Gloss in the shade Honey Sheen.
One product that I must mention is my Wet Brush. I don’t know what I would do without it. It gets all of the tangles out of my hair, without all of the ripping and damaging. I need four more for backup!
As for fashion, I have two pieces and they are both from Target.
The first piece is a backpack, I am so in love with it! Everything from the storage space all the way down to the color! It is the Woman’s Foldover Faux Leather Backpack. It is just stunning.
Lastly, I have the cutest shoes to share with you! They are the Women’s Alloy Slip-On Sneaker. They have the cutest bow, they’re black, and they go with anything!! Enough said.
I hope that you enjoyed this Friday Favorites! There will be more to come.
