Smartphone Photography 101

As a photography student I’m supposed to take my camera with me wherever I go but taking my DSLR everywhere is really hard that’s where my phone comes in place. I’m not saying that my phone is better than my DSLR but my phone is compact and it always stays with me 24/7. So whenever I see something and I don’t have my camera, I take the photo with my phone.

So here are some tips that will help you to take better pictures from your smartphone: Continue reading


Back To School Freebie | Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. So this week’s theme is “Required Reading for Every College Freshman”. I’m a college freshman and before coming to college I read all these books related to college life and I want to share them with you guys. Honestly after coming to college I haven’t even read a single page of a book and the guilt is eating me up. Every night I try to read but I’m just so tired that I go off to sleep. Even this! I haven’t been active in my blogging and I hate to do this. I’m trying really hard to keep up with everything but I’m not being able to. But I’m trying and I’ll keep on trying to balance everything.


Here are the books that every college freshmen should read: Continue reading

Still Trying to Adjust to the College Life

This is way harder than I thought!!


It’s almost 1 month and I haven’t read a single page. Ever since I came to Uni I haven’t got time to read and I feel so bad. Neither am I reading nor I’ve been active on my blog. I’m trying so hard to take out some time for everything I love but nothing is going my way. Honestly I didn’t really realised that it’ll be this hard to balance my college life and my blog. But I have to! I’m trying and I’ll keep trying to take out time for both. Continue reading

My First Week of College

Yayyy!!!! I finally survied my first week of my college.


I’ve honestly been trying to find time to blog and read books because this week has been hectic. The first day was honestly really scary. I actually was having panic attacks in the morning but later everything was fine. Met many people from all over the country. It’s really interesting to talk to them about their city and their culture. So far everything is going pretty good. The food that we get is not really tasty but it’s good enough that we can actually eat it. The weather here is really cold compared to where I lived. In July, it is actually really hot in my town but here we are walking around with our hoodies on. At night it gets more chilled. But the view is really amazing from here. We are on hilltop so my batch-mates and me just hang around and enjoy the view. Continue reading

My First Day in My Dorm!

My first day of living alone! Literally because my roommate isn’t here yet.


So I finally arrived to the university, got my keys and filled all the forms. When I entered my room the first thought that came to my mind was, this room looks really familiar. Then I remembered this room is really familiar to the room of Cath’s from Fangirl. And I was like, you know everything is the same but the only thing that’s missing or should I say the only person that’s missing is Levi. 😋

But anyway, the dorm is really good, the campus is way better. Well this university is on top of a hill so it’s really cold here compared to where I lived. Continue reading

If You Liked This Movie Mondays #1

Look at me coming with more new series in this blog. Hope you like this new series and if you would like to do it too, just don’t forget to tag me in it so I can see what you came up with. 😁

So I really like doing If&Then tags where I recommend couple of books to you guys and if you know me then you know the other thing that I equally love other than books are movies. I could just sit on my bed and watch movies all day long. So I thought that I’m already recommending books so why don’t I recommend movies too.

No excuses!

So this could go both ways; if you liked the movie you might like the book that I recommend or if you liked the book you might enjoy the movie that I recommend. So it’s a win-win situation for both the book lovers and movie lovers.

Here are my recommendations for this week:
