INSTAGRAM | HOW I EDIT MY PHOTOS

Ahhh Instagram, my preferred finger scrolling, double tapping social media feed which tends to occupy the better part of my day; more so than any other platform I must say. Instagram has been getting a lot of love and hate (more hate than love really…) these past few months for the new algorithms. But despite these struggles from all the changes, I still love finding new sources of inspiration and creativity on that platform. What people are creating around the world is truly astounding!

Being a creative means that I’m a visual person, hence I spend most of my time on Instagram and work hard on honing in on that aesthetic. Now, some people would say that I care too much, and I do to an extent.

BLOG | A NEW BEGINNING

It’s finally here… the official relaunch of DECONSTRUT.

I started this blog quite a while ago just for fun, as a place to get my love for fashion and photography out and visually present. I tinkered with the blog here and there but never took it really seriously and THISΒ year I wanted to revive it after it has been much neglected and bring even greater content to you readers! I realize that through this platform I have a voice that for some odd reason people like to listen to on occasion.

I hope that you’ll stay awhile, try a DIY or two out and take on some of my travel posts! Life’s too short to be stuck on just work, get out there, explore and create!

 

Love,
