      Baby update the Triplets are 3 months and 3 days old. They are starting to hold their head up on their on during tummy time and their little personalities are starting to show more, the sleep schedule is still a bit sporadic but we’re holding on. Cutting my hair has left me with a little more sleep time in the mornings. I wanted to do this sooner but well Marques found out that my beautiful dream house has a huge termite problem, I guess with living in a house surrounded by trees that’s going to happen at some point. So we moved in town to a nice little warehouse loft next to City Hall, Marques and I aren’t sure if this is permanent but I can’t stand living in a place and it not reflect some of our personality. I’ve finished decorating downstairs next is the nursery, Fiona, and Bryce’s room, our room and the laundry will be last on the list because we might move back or find a new home altogether this house is just a bit too small for the seven of us. This was just a quick little update of our life, & have a picture of daddy time a*k*a my nap time.❤️

           Oh and that was my Valentine gift…yeah that’s my man 😏

Would you mind showing us how you edit your Adventures of Aurora photos? Do you use reshade? The photos and editing is AMAZING i'm in love <3

🍁 How I edit “The Adventures of Aurora” 🍁

All righty! I think this is will be relatively simple, but if you don’t understand something feel free to send me a message! You will need Photoshop to follow this! Let’s begin, shall we?

1. Reshade 

I do use Reshade! I have found this stunning preset by @simemi and it is amazing, it makes everything look brighter and more vivid! It’s a must-have, really!

2. Topaz Clean 

I use and abuse Topaz Clean, it is one of my favorite things in Photoshop. You can download Topaz Clean here. I use it with the following settings:

3. Curves

All right! First off, I highly recommend you check this amazing post on curves by @bratsims  it taught me everything I know about curves!

I have two sets of curves I use, the one I use for all my screenshots of Aurora:

And the one I use on top of that first set if the picture isn’t bright enough for my liking:

If the picture still doesn’t quite look like I want it to look like, I go to Image>Adjustements>Brigthness/Contrast and adjust those two until I like what I see!

4. Blur & Layer Mask’s

Once again I am going to have to mention one of @bratsims tutorials, please check this one right over here

Essentially, what you want to do is:

  1. Duplicate your layer;
  2. On the duplicate go to Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur> and set it to something in between 1 and 2 pixels. 1.5 is a solid middle but sometimes I do 2 as well! Just adjust it to your liking; 
  3. On the bottom right corner next to fx there is this tiny square, click on that to add a layer mask;
  4. Then, using the brush tool, you will “delete the blur” on the things/sims that you don’t want to be “blurred out”.

Again, please check the tutorial I linked above, it has pictures which makes it is much easier to follow if you’re new to layer masks and/or how they work.

5. Cropping 

When all of this is done, I select the crop tool and insert the following ratio: 1366 x 700. And that’s it! Hope this helped 😊💓

OK so I’m going to put a dumb question out there in case anyone wants to help and I’m sorry if this is obnoxious to anyone…. I am completely new to Tumblr and I’m trying to put myself out there more, but I don’t completely know where to start.

My goal for this side blog (the one I currently use most) is to find some people I can nerd out with about Stranger Things and maybe even make some friends. I’m not worried about having a ton of followers or anything, I’d be satisfied with even just a few active people to chat with, bounce ideas off of, get content suggestions from, etc. I love all the content I’m seeing and I’m trying to be more social but I just don’t know where to start. Does anyone have any tips?

(Side note: My original content is limited for the next few weeks until my semester is over, but I’m trying to reblog all the things and hopefully someone finds me interesting and useful. I’m trying to get to a point where I have time and courage to at least get some fanfiction drabbles out or something. If anyone has any ideas or content suggestions, let me know and possibly even give me a follow!)
