Life Update. 29Rooms. Photography apps.

I’m pretty ridiculous and I’m aware. I’m just completely over myself okay. My last post was in March! Ha, pleaseee. MY LACK OF MOTIVATION HAS BEEN EATING ME ALIVE. Honestly, I can no longer deal which is why I am here right now typing up this post. I have more posts in mind but I thought it’ll be quite tacky to drop a blog post without explaining what’s really going on. SIGH—– (the dramatics LOL)


Well first, I am a graduate! A Howard University graduate that is! I’m thinking of doing a post-grad blog post, but that is a topic for another day! I moved back to Chicago and I am loving it. It feels good to be home after being separated for 4 years! I’m saying this now, but as soon as the weather drop, I’LL BE CRYING ICICLES. Minus the days when the heat is unbearable, I’ve enjoyed the summer and is dreading the climate change.

Enjoy this graduation picture, until the post-grad post drop!

The summer has been a time filled with installations and exhibits and I love a good photo opp paired with a good outfit. Refinery 29 is one of my favorite companies, so when I saw their brand, 29Rooms, was coming to Chicago I was eager to buy my ticket! I wasn’t able to go to every room there because of the set up of 29Rooms, but I still managed to get some great pictures in the rooms I did visit. 29Rooms is much different than your typical installation. Despite the name, it is one big room with 29 subsections dedicated to different artists and themes AND LONG LINES. Here some of my favorite pictures from the event:

Since I’ve had an iPhone one of my favorite features has been the photography apps. I’ve always enjoyed editing my pictures I thought it would be cool to start a new segment on my blog where I talk about apps and different tech tools I use whether that be to edit my pics or vlogs, etc. Hmmm.. the name of this segment should be something along the lines of “The Tech Tools.” I think I like that enough LOL.

I’ve recently come across the app “Afterlight” and I love it! The app is $1.99 but definitely worth it. They have a variety of tools on the app where you could honestly make it a one-stop shop, but of course, I’m too extra. I use at least 1 other app before going straight to Afterlight. If you’re simple with your editing you’ll definitely get a lot out of use out of Afterlight.

Comment below to let me know you guys favorite editing apps! Also, be sure to let me know if you download Afterlight!
