I wanted an Instagram name that was simple, to the point, and easy to remember. So why not my own name?

4) What are some apps you use to edit your photos? Share with us your photo-editing routine!

Editing apps I use are VSCO and Airbrush. I use the same HB2 filter for everything, and I adjust little things like the saturation and contrast. Then I use Airbrush to clean up anything that I want moved, enhanced, or changed in the photo.

Enhance the things that make you different from the rest. Everyone always wants to see something new and different so you must feed the lion. Also put a lot of effort into each post. It is worth it in the end.

9) What would your advice be on the importance of quality and original content?

It is important to put in a lot of effort in order to make sure the quality is at it’s best. Original content is what sets you apart from others and attracts people to your page. Just think as if you, yourself are the viewer and what content and quality you would want to see.

I like learning new things about brands and parts about the industry. I love trying new things that brands send and getting someone’s input of looks I didn’t think of trying.
