Manila Preset

July 25, 2017

I've been trying my best to rebuild my Instagram account but to no avail. I've been playing around with my Adobe Lightroom, trying to make presets for my feed but it is waaaay harder than I thought it would be. I wanted to make my feed have a little more "film" effect to it but I just can't do it - either I don't know how to or I can't because I'm too torn between having a sharp vibrant feed or the film thing. Ugh, this is making me crazy!

Help me out here, yeah? How do you like this preset? :)

It is famed for it's diverse landscapes ranging from tropical forests, high mountains, and beautiful beaches. Sri Lanka has also been blessed with the abundance of wild animals - this country is a sanctuary for wild animals such as elephants, leopards, and even animals in the deep blue sea, like blue whales and dolphins.

Getting Around Paris

July 15, 2017

Paris is one of the best cities and probably the most tourist-y city in Europe. After all, it is the labeled as the City of Love. It is also very girl's dream to go to Paris and witness the breathtaking view of the Tour Eiffel, which is the most popular tourist attraction in Paris. But the Tour Eiffel isn't the only best thing about Paris - we'll fall in love with the city itself. From the fancy restaurants and shops sitting around every corner of the city to all those world-class museums and famous landmarks. The architecture, the streets, the history, the people, everything about Paris is love. And don't even forget about the fact that they got a Disneyland in Paris! If you're planning to go to Paris anytime soon, here's a brief guide to Paris!

It one of the most historic castles in France. Now a famous museum, you can see luxurious furniture, interiors, beautiful paintings, and royal gardens. Get the chance to see the life of a royalty for a day!

Perched on an island located in Normandy, France. Named after the archangel Michael, it's a great place of Christian Pilgrimage. Get lost in time with it's medieval architecture.
Place de La Concorde is one of the major squares in the French capitol. Connecting with Jardin de Tuilleries and Champs-Elysees. Also know for it's part from the dark french history, being the area of the beheading of hundreds of people with the guillotine during the french revolution. I don't mean to scare anyone, but I love history!

 It's a famous location where Claude Monet had made it a home and made his art works. He, himself was the architect behind the garden and was brought to life by hiring seven gardeners. The garden was said to have been built from Monet's own vision of a perfect garden for his paintings.
