Napa Valley


I like change. For some really odd reason it excites me which is why I decided to start a new preset on all of my images. If you have been following me for a while you may have noticed a rose gold tone in my images but for this summer I want to brighten things up! Hence I will start changing my Instagram feed with a warmer tone to celebrate the warmer days ahead.




However, starting a new preset, i.e. a new layout for your Instagram and blog is a lot of work. I don’t have a ton of new content built up hence I looked for old images I never got to post. I edited at least 20 sets (with this this warmer preset) and I kid you not, it was tiring. I kept editing all day + re-organizing my feed on UNUM (a strongly recommend this app if you want to organize your grid before you post on Instagram). So, stay tuned for the new layout design and be sure to let me know your thoughts on my new preset endeavor!

But let’s get back to fashion…My husband took these pictures of me in Napa, California. Gosh, I love and miss California. It was so fun to explore the vineyards of Napa. Isn’t it so pretty?! This two piece from Chicwish was just the perfect look as well—making our visit to the vineyards even more fabulous!

    Oh i know how tiring it is, I am a graphic designer and earn a living at this. People think it is all creativity all the time but it is not. Much of it is tedious production work and constantly having to keep up with new technology. Love the new feel and makes sense for summer!

    I love the warm, summery feel, Vanessa. I think switching it up for the season is a great idea! Napa looks like it was incredible. It always makes the most beautiful backdrop!

    love the outfit and love the new look for your photos. I was thinking about doing a brighter theme for my photos too, inspired by the sunshine we are having right now ๐Ÿ™‚

    As for the kind of business I’m working, we all need to find tools for automation and I think this is a must for Instagram otherwise it is quickly taking too much time! Photo edition can be complex and when you have a lot of pictures … it’s a nightmare ๐Ÿ˜‰

    On the other side … without pictures a blog or social media wouldn’t be as popular as they are!

    Your pictures in the Napa Valley are beautiful … I want to go there ๐Ÿ™‚ And you’re outfit simply beautiful!

    What a lovely dress! ๐Ÿ™‚ I like the colours in this image too, nice preset to use! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m lucky I don’t worry too much about my instagram feed – I just post the outfits I wear each day. My feed definitely isn’t as professional as yours though, haha!

    Hope that you are having a great week so far! ๐Ÿ™‚
