A sleek marble backdrop for Instagram that doubles as decor for your bedroom.
Do it now. Sometimes ‘later’ becomes ‘never’.
I started working from home in the beginning of 2016 and haven’t looked back since. I put the TV on in the background, veg out on the couch with my computer on my lap, and get right to work. It’s relaxing and I love it. But one thing I’ve learned is that it’s often so hard to get motivated. I’ll catch myself glazed over and staring off into space. Or sometimes I just can’t come up with anything worth writing about. Nothing is worse than having an off day.
It’s so much fun to get all done up and explore the city with my camera. My sister and I have a blast trying on different outfits and setting up makeshift photoshoots. But I always wondered what it would be like to be photographed professionally. And, when I got a job as a fashion designer in downtown Los Angeles, I finally got the chance. So if you’re wondering what really goes on at a fashion shoot, then take a look behind the scenes at my photoshoot.
Decorating on a budget can be tough. While one of my favorite places to shop for hipster decor is Urban Outfitters, there’s no way the average person could afford to furnish an entire apartment there. Whether you are moving to a new apartment or just want to spice up your first college dorm, DIY projects are one of the best ways to decorate without breaking the bank. In fact, some of the biggest conversation starters in my place are the pieces I built myself. That’s why I’ve rounded up 5 of my favorite hipster apartment DIY projects. Not only can you get that designer look for a fraction of the price, but you also get the satisfaction of knowing your hand went into creating such a unique and beautiful piece (all while impressing your friends with your mad skills).
