My Magazine Cover

Hey guys,

For this weeks post, I thought I would share with you all something I created. In my media class at school, we were asked to create a magazine cover, contents page and article. I was really happy with how these turned out and thought I would share them with you all. To create these I used Photoshop. It was just a school project that I really enjoyed doing.
Hope you guys like them too. (You wont be able to read the article because it's to small, but maybe one day i'll post the whole thing. Also these are my own work, however the images used on them are not. If for some strange reason you would like to use my work, please ask first.)

Hope you like my work. I was really happy with how it turned out.

Until next week,
Carla xx

Photography Time!

Hey guys,
You might not know this but I really like taking photos! So I thought for this weeks blog post, I would share some of the recent photos I have taken in my last two holidays. One of the holidays I went on was camping and the other one was a trip to Sydney. They were both good trips, however I liked Sydney more because I got to compare it to Melbourne. (Where i live) 
I'm also going to add some photos of when I went to Melbourne City last. These photos are edited so I will tell you witch ones they are.

The camera I used for these photos were a Sony Cyber Shot. I don't know what exact model it is because I pulled the sticker off but I do know that it is 14.1 megapixels. I am looking at buying a DSLR camera, but that is a whole other story.

Sorry there is so many photos but I just wanted to share them all with you guys.

Hope you guys enjoy!

All the above photos are from Sydney. 

All the above photos are from when I went camping





Hope you guys enjoyed these photos, 
Until next time

Mothers Day Gift Idea

Hey guys. Its mothers day (soonish)

So it's that time of year and your having trouble coming up with ideas for what you could get mum. Even when you ask her she says nothing, but you can't get her nothing so what do you do?

My friend came up with a good idea that I've stolen and decided to do myself. And that is to get a nice decorative box just from the $2 shop and make a little goody box. Think of it as a beauty box but with anything in it. You could put her favorite sweets, makeup, books, anything really. It doesn't matter what your mum is into, there are always little bits and pieces you can find. (Lets hope my mum does not read this and find out what I got her)

And if you want to do something more, you could treat your mum to a day out. Go to lunch, get a manicure or even take her to see a gold class movie! Even just spending the day with her. I'm sure she will appreciate anything.

Here is what I have put in my mum's little goody bag so far.
Little makeup travel bag
Scarf (It's underneath everything)
Hand cream
Body butter
Body spray
Chocolate (It's a chocolate cat and my mum loves cats!)

Anyway I hope this helps if you are stuck for ideas!
Until next time

As you may or may not know, I am on Bloglovin'. And because I didn't know what it was at first, I am going to explain it to anyone who doesn't know what Bloglovin' is.

It's a website (and now also available as an app) where you can follow all your favorite blogs and just have them all in the one place. It's really good for organizing the blogs you read and making sure you never miss a post. You can get a daily email which tells you the day's posts and it just makes it a lot easier than going through your saved blogs one by one and seeing if they have updated it.

You can connect your blog on there if you have one and have a profile that shows your posts and followers and all that. I just think it's a really great website and you should go check it HERE!

That's all for now. See you next time!
