    How to Amp Up an Outfit

    Blog Post #6 I often experience days where I do not feel like putting a cute outfit together. On these days I usually gravitate towards a pair of jeans and a t-shirt or a sweatsuit. However, sometimes these outfits can look kind of boring and not very stylish. That said, my favorite way to transform a not-so-interesting outfit is by using accessories! Accessories are super versatile as they are extra additions to outfits. Although simple and typically small, they can make a huge difference! It makes it look like you put thought into your outfit and planned it really well when in reality you just put on a couple of…

    Peer Review #2: Brianna Carniel

    For the second peer review, I am reviewing Brianna Carniel’s website, Brutally, Brianna. Right off the bat, the website catches my eye as the title is an alliteration. Though it would be nice if she made use of a tagline, to give her viewers a little more intel of what they should look forward to, as the title doesn’t evidently give it away.  Design The main color Brianna uses is a pretty pastel which is very inviting. Nevertheless, while take a closer look to her color scheme I think it would be more cohesive if she would limit it to three main colors: black, white and lavender. Thus, I would suggest…

    My Audience

    Process Post #6 Chittenden (2010) expresses that “without having cues about who will view a post, an imagined audience provides a necessary way of envisioning who should be present” (p. 512). Therefore, at the beginning of my planning and designing process, when I created my vision board, I also imagined an audience that would be viewing the blog that I was about to create. That said, the audience I have been imagining for my blog has been people like me. I have thought or have wanted my content to reach out to females that are around my age group, such as young adults ranging from 17–25-year-olds. However, I am aware that…

    Does the Internet Create a Democratic Space?

    Being that social media is a “medium easily accessible for both the source as well as the receiver”, citizens not only have the ability to create but also consume media freely; “connecting, networking and voicing out opinions” (Govindarajan & Ravindar, 2016, p. 4). That being said, Jha and Kodila-Tedik (2019) suggest that “the liberation technology, such as the internet, mobile phones, and social media, ha[ve] the potential to positively influence democratic outcomes” (p. 271). However, upon research, reflection, and experience, it has come to my realization that in coming to this implication, there are also concerns to look into. Although “it is true that social media is a platform to voice ones’ opinion…

    Continuing the Process

    Process Post #5 Mauve Pagé’s (2021) lecture video was extremely informative and brilliant! There were many things she touched on that I never would have thought of. She also did a really fantastic job of keeping everything simple and concise, specifically helpful for a beginner web creator and designer – I guess that is her specialty. With that said, I was able to use her video as a checklist for my own blog. I realized that I had already implemented many of the things she mentioned, however, there were a few design practices that she analyzed that I could adjust on my end.  Firstly, I feel like I have done…

    Jeans, Really?

    Blog Post #5: Do you ever wake up feeling like you need a boost of confidence in the morning? I feel you!   Picture this: You wake up exhausted, not feeling particularly cute. You have things to tackle on your to-do list like getting your nails done and picking up some items for tonight recipe. You want to leave the house with your bedhead and your lululemon’s because no one will care, right?  But it’s totally just as easy to slip on a pair of your favorites jeans and you’ll walk out feeling way better than you would have if you went with option one.  Or picture this: You’re in the…

    Peer Review #1: Karlo Kablar

    For the first peer review, I am reviewing Karlo Kablar’s website, “Karlo Kablar Design”. Although I do not know much about gaming, or the design process of video games, I am very intrigued as I do enjoy playing Mario Kart and other simple video games. I am happy that Karlo now has this platform as Watters (2015) says “it is important to have one’s own space in order to develop one’s ideas and one’s craft (para 7). With that said, if you are a gamer, or are looking into making your own video game, give this website a gander!  Basics, Layout, and Design I really like Karlo’s title to his blog; “The…

    The Last Hour of the Internet

    Process Post #4 “If you only had one hour left with the internet what would you do in that time?” When thinking about this question during lecture, I immediately thought about pictures.  I am definitely the type of person that loves to look at pictures as they always bring back the most vivid memories. I am constantly taking photos with my friends and significant other, specifically for the purpose of them to look at later down the road. I love looking at my mom’s photo albums from when she was a young adult, as well as the albums she made for me and brother. Some may say that you don’t…

    Face Mask Favorites

    Blog Post 4: As Dory mentioned last week, she loves the face mask recommendations I gave her. So, here I am today, to recommend them to you and hopefully you enjoy them just as much!  In the introduction of my blog, I defined self-care as “doing what you need to do to make yourself feel better and happy”. I also opened up and expressed my need for a better self-care routine, as I often find myself struggling to find time (or make time) for the things that I enjoy. With that said, I explained that putting on a face mask and watching Netflix usually does the trick! It makes me feel…
