The different photoediting apps I use to create “amazing” pictures

Hi y’all! How are y’all doing? I really hope you are doing fine. For me, I’ve been alright. There’s nothing major going on in my life at the moment. We just thank God for life. Okay okay, let’s move on:)

So, I am a photo editor as well. I edit different kinds of photos for different people and also for myself. I edit pictures to make them look better or to fit into a certain kind of aesthetic. To be honest, photo editing really is not easy but I love doing it, so I don’t find it that stressful. Anyway, let’s get into the different photoediting apps I use to create my amazing pictures.

1. Adobe Photoshop Lightroom( Lightroom in short)

This is really one of the best apps for photoediting. I use this app the most because it lets me do a lot of stuff and it is also pretty easy to use. I use Lightroom to create presets. Presets are a way of saving certain editing styles and adjustments so that you can use them on other pictures. Presets also make your photoediting work easier. For me, I think Lightroom is the best app to use to create presets. I use Lightroom to edit different kinds of pictures and I love that it also has many different editing tools. In short, you can do a lot to your picture or photo with Lightroom.

2.VSCO

I really love VSCO; it’s one of my go-to apps for photoediting. I use it to create subtle edits and they come out really nice. VSCO is another app that is amazing to use for photoediting. VSCO is really easy to use and you can edit your photos really fast with it. A lot of people use VSCO and this just even tells you that it is really good. VSCO is really good for creating gentle edits and aesthetically pleasing pictures. You can also copy your edits from one picture and paste them on another picture on VSCO. In short, VSCO is bae and the different tools on there will make your pictures look really nice.

3. PicsArt

This is one of the most used photoediting apps. PicsArt was actually the first photediting app I used and tried. PicsArt has a lot of stuff; it is like a whole package. There are so many editing tools on PicsArt to use to create different types of edits on your picture or photo. With PicsArt, you would never be bored because it has variety; different types of ways to edit just one picture. PicsArt is pretty easy to use and if you are just starting out with photoediting, I totally recommend PicsArt.

4. Snapseed

Someone recently told me about Snapseed and I really love it so far. To be honest, Snapseed really isn’t easy to use but as you keep using it, it gets easier to use. On Snapseed, there are also so many editing tools that allow you to create wonders with your pictures or photos. With Snapseed, you can create subtle or aggressive edits and it has even more tools than most photoediting apps. Snapseed is very common in the photoediting world because of how good and effective it is. If you want to try out a new photoediting app, I recommend trying out Snapseed.

5. Prequel

I don’t really use Prequel because I use the aforementioned apps mostly. However, Prequel is really good for editing photos too. On Prequel, you have so many options; so many ways to edit your pictures. With Prequel, you can edit one picture so many ways and it will still look really nice(well, if you know what you are doing). If you are someone who likes to have different options, then you need to have Prequel. Prequel is easy to use as well. I totally recommend Prequel to y’all for photoediting.


That’s all for today y’all. By the way, these are not only the apps I use for photoediting. I use a lot of apps but these are just some of the apps. Most of these apps are really easy to use, you just need to find the one that you really like and works for you best. If y’all didn’t already know, I also do videoediting, so I might write a blogpost on that soon.

The importance of consulting God in decision making

Hi y’all! How are you doing? I really hope everything is going well with y’all. For me, I have been doing a lot of thinking; trying to understand a lot of things and get things in order. I have also been focused on school, trying to do amazingly well this school year. So, I am doing pretty fine, all thanks to God. Anyway, let’s get into today’s post.

Today’s topic is something I’ve been thinking about a lot. God has also shown me a couple of things regarding this topic. I’m pretty excited to share my thoughts and all the things shared with me with you guys. So, just keep reading!

We all know that decision making is an important part of life. Every action we take in this life is the result of a decision we make. The decisions we make determine how our lives will turn out. They determine whether we would achieve our God given purpose in this life or not. In all, decision making is a pretty big deal.

Due to the importance of decision making, it’s essential to consult God before making any decisions. God knows everything; He knows what’s going to happen before it really happens, so it’s best to ask Him first before we do anything. It’s only God that would help you to make the right decisions and do what’s right for you.

The Bible in Jeremiah 1 vs 5, says that God knew us even before we entered our mother’s womb. He knows what our lives will look like. He knows which steps are the right ones for us to take. He knows which decisions will make us and the ones that will destroy us. There’s a reason why God is called Omniscience God! It’s because He knows everything. So, why are we not talking to Him? Why are we not going to Him first? Why are we not consulting Him first?

The first mistake a lot of us make before we even make decisions is not asking God first. Most of us seem to forget that we have God for us. God who is willing to help us at anytime. God who tells us in Matthew 7 vs 7 that we should ask and we shall receive. If we just ask Him for help, He’ll surely give it to us because a father doesn’t ignore His children. God loves us and He wants us to know it. He’s going to always be there for us and He wants us to know it. So what are you waiting for? Why aren’t you acknowledging your Helper?

In all, I just want y’all to realize that the first and most important thing before we make any decision is to ask God for help. It really doesn’t matter how little you think that decision is. It can be what you want to eat or what you should wear. Anything at all!! God doesn’t mind, so why are you scared and afraid? God is a loving God, so you don’t need to be scared or afraid to go to Him in prayer for all your needs and your questions.

I just pray that God helps us to see that He truly wants us to come to Him and ask Him for help in Jesus name. Amen! That’s all for today y’all. If you have any question or thoughts about today’s post, you can just drop a comment. Bye y’all!

Please obey this verse. Don’t depend only on your own understanding, ask God for help and trust Him to help you to do the right thing.

“A friend in need is a friend indeed”-maybe I am just not cut out for friendships…

Hi y’all! How are you doing? How has your week been so far? For me, I have been really stressed and some things aren’t really going well. I have a lot of things going well but there are still a lot of things not going well. Anyway, my trust remains in God. Tribulations will come but because I have God, I shouldn’t fear because He has overcome the world for me. God is good y’all. By the way, today’s post is me being very real and very honest. Let’s just get into it.

Friendship has always been a struggle for me. Well, it didn’t start being a struggle until I moved to America; that’s when it all changed. To be honest, moving to America is one thing that has really really affected my life till now. My life just turned around, both in good and bad ways- you can read about it in my blogpost “What I went through moving from Nigeria to America”.

After I first moved to America, I became a very very shy person who has lost all her confidence. America is so different because it’s not only black people here, it’s a combination of all types of people. I was not used to that; I was used to being surrounded by black people and I wasn’t even aware of my blackness. To cut the long story short, the school I first attended when I got to America didn’t have a lot of black kids and the area I live in is a white-dominated area. It was really difficult for me to be myself because I just couldn’t relate to the people around me.

Since I lost my confidence, it was really really hard for me to make friends, infact I didn’t make any friends. I was alone and even though, it made me feel really somehow, I was comforted because I always thought that I had friends in Nigeria. The “friends in Nigeria” thing is like another story of its own. I’ll just tell y’all the summary of it.

I just realized that there are really no friends in Nigeria anywhere. Although I had a lot of friends in Nigeria when I was still there, I didn’t realize that they would all have moved on with their lives(**stops writing here and cleans imaginary tears**). Even the person I called best friend had gotten another best friend and I looked like a big fool still calling her my best friend. Anyway, it’s fine and I don’t blame any of them because it’s kinda selfish for me to expect them to put their lives on hold. They have their lives to live and they can’t put it on hold because of me.

By the way, these “friends in Nigeria” still text me but there’s really no connection there anymore for most of them. Yes, we all talk and text sometimes but it doesn’t feel like before anymore when we were all really close. Long story short, I am kinda “friendless” right now and I lowkey love it. Okay, “friendless’ might be too strong and too harsh. Yeah but according to my own definition of friendship, I really am kinda friendless right now. Also, a lot of people would say that I’m not friendless but I feel friendless(argue with your phones 😂). Anyway, I am able to focus more on myself and do a lot of things that I want to do. I think that’s better for me, right?

Also, I recently had an experience with someone who wanted to be my “friend”. He is a really nice person but it’s just that I feel like I don’t even know how to be a friend anymore. I don’t even entertain friendships anymore because I just think I am not cut out for friendship. I guess that’s fine because I am thriving on my own and I am doing really fine being by myself(*lies but let’s just leave it alone*).

In all, truth is that friendships now confuse me because I’ve seen that people seem to get too attached easily. I am not the best with that, so I don’t know how to deal with a “friend”. Man, I really don’t know. It is well sha. I have God with me. By the way, I really am fine. Please don’t comment “sorry” or anything like that.

Just let me know what you think about friendship in the comment. Do you think you are cut out for friendship? Are you like me when it comes to friendship? Let me know your thoughts in the comments. Don’t be scared or shy to leave a comment, this is a judgment-free zone.

“Attachments”|why do people get attached too easily?..

Hello people! How are y’all doing? I really hope y’all are fine. For me, I have been okay. There’s nothing really interesting going on for me. I have just been trying to take a break from Instagram and WhatsApp. It’s not really easy but I’m doing really good so far. Prayerfully, I am able to stay off these apps till the end of October. Anyway, let’s get into today’s post.

I am just going to start off by telling you guys about this story. I remember when I went for a Model U.N ‘competition’ from school. I partnered with this very outgoing and cheery girl; for Model U.N, it’s better if you are in partners. So, this girl kept going around talking to the other people there; there were a lot of students from different countries there. She was asking for almost everyone’s numbers and taking pictures with them. Throughout the whole thing(it was for three days), she just kept trying to make friends whilst still doing the work. I was just wowed and kinda annoyed because I thought it was all very unnecessary.

For me, I came there for an event/competition. I just wanted to do the thing, win, and get out of there. I really didn’t get the point of making friends with people you’ll probably never see again. One thing about me is that I really try to not get too attached to people. If I collected all those peoples’ numbers, I probably won’t even text them again, so what was the point of getting attached? I really don’t get it.

This whole attachment thing is also the reason why I don’t make friends anymore and I don’t accept friend requests. Like I just don’t like it when people are too close and all up in my business. I really don’t get people, to be honest. How can you just meet someone and you are already all up in their business, texting them everyday, and calling them every time. People truly confuse me. Another thing I really don’t get is those people on social media who dm you trying to be friends. I’m like, how do you ask someone to be your friend when you only just saw them on social media?? I feel like a lot of people don’t care but for me, I really care because it just makes no sense to me. I really don’t want unnecessary friendship. Sorry not sorry y’all(this is so mean😭).

I am not really good with friendship, so the people who are trying to make me their friend are really just disturbing themselves. Friendship for me has just become really weird and confusing over the years( y’all don’t worry, I have a blogpost about this coming up very soon).

So, I want to know what y’all think about attachments. Why do y’all think people get attached too easily? What do you think of the people who get too attached too easily? Do you think getting attached too easily is a good or bad thing? Let me know in the comments.

My experience with relationships-what I also think about relationships…

Hi y’all. I really hope y’all are doing fine. Like I said in the blogpost before this, school already started for me. It has been okay so far. I am being really positive about it and I am just putting it all in God’s hands. An advice for y’all is that you should always try to be positive with everything and do not forget to have complete faith in God. Anyways, today’s post is filled with so much gist. So, just keep reading!

I have actually been thinking a lot about relationships, especially now that almost everyone around me is involved in a relationship. Since it has been on my mind a lot, I made a podcast episode about it, and now I am getting deeper about it here on my blog. By the way, if you’ve not yet listened to that episode on my podcast and you will like to listen, go to anchor.fm/ctamwithbee

First, let me just share my experience with the whole dating/relationship thing. I really have never dated anyone and I don’t plan on doing that anytime soon. Well, I was asked out once by this guy but I said no. Honestly, thank God for my life because if not for God, I would have said yes and just gotten into a mess. I really don’t joke with this relationship thing, although I feel like a lot of people do. I feel like a lot of people don’t really understand what a relationship is and they just jump into it.

A relationship isn’t a bad thing but I think that a lot of people get into it at the wrong time. For me, I believe that getting into something at the wrong time would lead to that thing not ending well. I really am not an expert on this whole relationship thing by the way, so, I don’t really know a lot. For me, I also think that a lot of people get into relationships due to peer pressure. They see their friends getting into relationships, and then they get pressured to get into a relationship as well. People really need to realize that God’s timing is the best, so it is important to wait on God before getting into anything or before making any decisions.

Lately, I have been feeling pressured regarding this whole relationship thing but God is telling me to be patient. Also, I have so many other important things now that need a lot of my focus and attention. I know my priorities, so I am being really careful, mindful, and patient. The lesson from today’s blogpost is patience and consulting God before making any decisions.

A lot of people fail to be patient and then they get into something that ends up being disastrous. Like I said in my podcast episode about relationships, “you know when you are ready and when you are not ready”. A lot of people are not ready at all, yet they are venturing into a romantic relationship. Also, always ask God before making any decisions. I am pretty sure most of the people rushing into romantic relationships now did not ask God first. Please remember to always put God first in everything!! I pray that God guides us and gives us the spirit of patience in Jesus name. Amen!

So, in case you are unaware, the ‘relationship’ I am talking about in this blogpost is romantic relationships. Anyway, please leave a comment on your opinion on relationships or maybe you can just drop relationship advice in the comment; anything that relates to today’s post. Don’t be scared or shy to drop a comment, this is a judgment-free zone.

That’s all for today. Bye y’all:)

Five different free apps that will make school so much easier for you..

Hello people! How are you doing? How is life going for y’all? I really hope everything is okay with y’all. For me, I have been pretty good. I have just been working so much harder, so as to do well in everything I am involved in. School just started and I am pretty excited because I really just want it to be over already. I have also been exercising patience in everything I am doing and I am also trusting God with everything. That is all about me, let’s get into today’s post.

If you are not sure how today’s post fits into what this blog is about, this post is a life tip. Life tips is one of the things that I will be writing about in this blog, just in case y’all did not already know. I think this blogpost is going to be really helpful, especially since school just started. For real now, let’s get into today’s post.

1. Quizlet

Quizlet is one app that I use every time for school. One of the really amazing things about Quizlet is that it can be used for almost all subjects/classes. Quizlet can be used to study or it can be used to do your homework. A lot of people use Quizlet already, so there are different things on there; like different questions and answers for different subjects, definitions of key words, and many more. Quizlet has really helped me with almost all of my homework. As a student, Quizlet is an app that is very very useful for you but you have to be careful on there, so as to not get wrong information. Although most of the things there are correct and true, some things there need to be crosschecked. In all, if you are finding it very difficult to do your assignments or to understand what you are learning in school, check out Quizlet .

2. Google Translate app

This app is a must have if you are taking a foreign language class. I can’t even count how many times I have used this app to translate different texts, passages, and readings for my Spanish class. This is the app that has helped me to do really well in all my Spanish assignments. With this free app, you can translate different languages in different ways. You can take a picture of the reading or passage you want to translate, amongst many other ways and this app translates correctly. With this app, you will be acing all your foreign language class assignments. Just try this app and you will never delete it from your phone or computer.

3. Khan Academy

Khan Academy is probably the best that would be on my list and I am sure that a lot of students who already use this free app would affirm to this. Khan Academy is literally a life saver because you can use it for everything school related. You can use it to study for different exams, you can use it to study for your different classes/subjects, you can use it to prepare for a class that you are going to take in the future. You can use it to do your homework, you can use it to learn keywords for your different classes, and so much more. I really think Khan Academy is a necessity for every student because of how helpful it is. If you are struggling with a class, or you just need help preparing for exams, you need to download Khan Academy on your phone or computer right now. The only thing is that it is not available on Google Play but you can go to their website at khanacademy.org to use it.

4.Socratic

Ever since I found Socratic, I have been using it for a lot of my homework. Socratic is very helpful with doing your homework. Socratic allows you to take a picture or type in your assignment questions, and it shows you different websites that relate to the assignment question and can help you to answer the question. Socratic does not give you a particular answer to your questions but it helps you a lot in finding answers to your homework questions. I also think that students should have this app on their computers or phones because it helps you to see different ways to answer your assignment questions and it just is very very helpful no matter what grade you are in.

5. Kahoot

Kahoot is a great app for learning different things. Kahoot is also a really great app for studying and reviewing your notes. You can use Kahoot for different subjects/classes. An advantage of Kahoot is that it is very very easy to use, so you can quickly use it to review your notes before a test or an exam. Kahoot lets you create questions for different topics, so you can go over your notes this way. Kahoot is not totally free but most of the things on there are free. If you need help or are struggling with preparing for your exams or studying your notes, Kahoot would be really good for you.


In all, there are so much more free apps to use for school. I did not include note-taking apps here but you can research on that because there are a lot of free and nice note-taking apps. There are also other apps for studying and doing your homework, you just need to research and see what works best for you. Also, there are different websites that can help, maybe I will write a blogpost on this but in the mean time, you can do some research by yourself.

In marriages, are husband and wife supposed to be equal or should one be above the other?

Hi people! How are you all doing? This week has been a lot for me. I really have been feeling different types of emotions. I have been tired because I have been doing so much stuff but it is all good. I love everything I am doing. Also, I am really happy to finally write about today’s topic. I should have written this months ago but it is well. Anyway, let’s just get into today’s topic.

For a long time in most non-American countries, the husband has always been above the wife in the family. I think this family setting was formed due to patriarchy. The wife has always been less respected and honored by other members of the society. This family setting was also formed because of gender inequality. You would be so surprised that gender inequality exists most especially in marriages.

People argue that the man earns more, so he should be the head of the family. He has to be respected just because he is a man. Whereas, the wife is always treated like a child or even the maid in her own marriage; like, she is not supposed to work and that she needs to be in the kitchen always, just for her husband. I think people forget that the wife is human too. She should be allowed to work, and she should be given the same amount of respect as her husband.

Due to this weird traditional setting of the family, most men do not respect their wives. They literally treat their wives like a maid. They say that it is the wife’s duties to cook, and clean the house. They expect their wives to clean up after them and do everything for them. This is so wrong because both men and women are able to do these things. It is not a wife’s job or duty. Cooking is a basic skill that both men and women should have and both men and women should also be able to clean the house that they live in. The wife should not always be cleaning up after her husband because he is a grown man and should do that himself. Men really need to understand that their wives have a life of their own, and they cannot be at your beck and call every minute.

In all, for me, I think that even though the man is the head of the house, husband and wife should not be above each other in a marriage. One cannot be treated like a king, while the other is being treated like a maid. That is all for today. Bye y’all:)
