Last May I purchased something I’ve wanted for a while, a GoPro. I’ve always been interesting in video editing, and even used to edit my own with Sony Vegas back in high school. Since getting a Mac back in 2011, I haven’t been as interested in editing. I loved Sony Vegas and didn’t want to relearn a different software… but I finally caved and downloaded Final Cut Pro this past week.
After playing around with it for about a day, I learned some of the basic features needed to edit my GoPro footage.
I love watching edited videos with good music and cool cut scenes. Some of my favourite travel bloggers post really awesome edits. While my footage was more of a summer staycation than a vacation video, I decided to give it a try anyway.
Considering I just learned the basics of Final Cut, I’m pretty happy with the result. Check it out below! I’m sure there will be more to come after this now that I’ve gotten more of a handle on it.
As cooler days are headed our way, some of you might be trying to soak up those last bits of summer sun to keep your sun-kissed glow. Usually I’d be doing the same, but not this year.
I tried my best to keep my skin protected from the sun’s damaging rays this summer. This statement is HUGE coming from a girl who’s tried every trick in the book to stay tanned. I’m not one of those people who can pull off being pale; I just end up looking sickly in the winter. I’m also not the type of person who tans easily. I can achieve a decent tan from laying out but it takes a couple of weeks and sun burns to get there. I’ve come to realize it’s not worth it. It’s no news that skin cancer, and countless other skin problems, are caused by sun exposure. Exposing yourself to the potential skin problems for the price of temporary beauty is not exactly smart.
Sunless tanning has been my go-to for bronzing this summer, and continues to be as we transition into fall. I’ve tried every type of sunless tanning technique out there: oils, professional spray tans, mousses, lotions, home sprays, etc. I think it’s safe to say at this point I’ve experienced the pros and cons of all to help with the self-tanning dos and don’ts.
It does take some work to keep it up, more work than simply laying in the sun or in a tanning bed, but here are some tips I’ve discovered to make sunless tanning easier:
