Selfies Are Fun

For years I’ve been taking selfies. My social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram have loads and loads of selfies. Today I thought I would make collaged art out of them. Here is what I created.

Making Polaroid Framed Photos Using Photoshop

I created photos that are Polaroid framed. I found a Polaroid picture online. Then put it in a layer. I selected the black middle and deleted it. Then put the images below the polaroid layer. Then put a text box on top and typed the captions for the images. Here are some examples below.

Editing Photos in iPhoto

iPhoto is part of the iLife suite and comes on every Mac computer. It is a great software for editing photos. It helps you organize your photos into albums. My favorite part of iPhoto is its ability to easily turn a boring photo into a masterpiece. All you need to do is click on enhance and then add some effects. Here are some examples of my photos that I edited in iPhoto.

Here is a video I made about the process. I will be showing you how to enhance a photo, turn a photo sepia toned, black and white, boost color, edge blur, antique, straighten, and crop.

The Must Have Coach Travel Accessories

Traveling can be hectic, difficult, and include lots of walking so when traveling one must have the best travel bag, shoes, and wallet. I have picked the perfect travel accessories from Coach.com. These accessories are must haves for travel in large cities like New York City, Paris, or Milan. My picks are fashionable, versatile, provides convenience, and most importantly they provide comfort and ease when traveling.

For the bag, I picked the Chelsea Hobo 32 in Polished Leather. It is the perfect bag because you can carry it in two ways. You can wear it over the shoulder, close and snug to you or you can use the longer strap and carry it as a crossbody. Crossbody bags are great for travel because your hands are free to carry shopping bags, camera, and phone. The style is hobo chic and can go with casual or semi formal travel clothing. I chose black because the color will match many other colors. The bag is priced at $325, a great bargain for a high-end brand bag.

I chose the comfortable classic sneakers for shoes called C101 Low Top Sneakers. They are the perfect travel shoes because they are great for walking long distances. The leather gives it a sophisticated look and it goes perfectly with the Chelsea Hobo bag. The shoes will go great with jeans or black slacks. The shoes are priced at an affordable $295.

Now for the perfect wallet, I chose the Accordion Zip Wallet in Polished Pebble Leather with Willow Floral. I chose this wallet because it matches perfectly with the shoes and bag and it is an accordion zip meaning your things will not be in danger of falling out because it zips all the way around. It is a large wallet so it can contain your must haves for travel such as IDs and credit cards. The wallet can fit 12 credit cards and you can store your bills lengthwise. It also has a zipped coin compartment. Another feature of the wallet that you will love is it can fit an iPhone 7 or a Samsung S7 Edge. The wallet is priced at $275, a great buy.

Check out the Chelsea Hobo bag, C101 Top Sneakers, and Accordion Zip Wallet on Coach.com. These three picks will ensure your travel runs smoothly while you looking stylish. Coach also has other options for a crossbody bag, sneakers, and accordion zip wallet that you may fall in love with.
