Snap Happy

As I celebrate my 1000th Instagram picture, I thought it was about time I answered all those questions about snapping pictures on your phone! Not a day goes by without an eager commenter asking what I use to edit my Instagram pictures – wonder no more!

My Favourite Apps

None of this is groundbreaking stuff, but regardless, here are the apps I use on a regular basis to keep my Insta snaps looking bright! Even if you just find on new app out of this bunch, my job here will be done. I’d love it if you could share any amazing apps I’ve missed in the comments!

VSCOcam

Duh, I know, you all use VSCO, but it’s the best, right? It’s the only app I use to edit my pictures at the moment. It just does everything I need it to do and has the best filters.

Afterlight

Afterlight is also bloomin’ amazing. It has a tonne of filters, but also lots of fun extras, like putting your picture in a circle, or adding a patterned background. It also has some great light leaks and vintage camera grain. Everything you need in one app!

A Beautiful Mess

Another one I know you’re all going to have already! An amazing app for putting little doodles and writing onto your images. The inspiring ladies over at A Beautiful Mess created this app,  and continue to add really cool features!

Snapseed

Snapseed is a great all-rounder for sorting out the basics. The sliders for brightness, contrast etc give you far more control than VSCO. Perfect for people that want to do a little editing but maintain that #nofilter look.

Fuzel

Fuzel has to be the best collage app! It’s not often I want to collage together images, but if I needed to, this app would be my go-to.

Tips

Click, click, click

My process for Instagramming has to be pretty standard. I shoot around 10 snaps, testing different compositions, and then pick out the best. There is always one less blurry or more vibrant than the rest!

Selfies

I always always use the back camera, even when shooting selfies. It might mean that I have to guess and hope for the best regarding where I’m pointing the camera, but it’s worth it for the better quality.

Don’t forget to tag!

Tag the brands that you’re wearing  in your #ootd’s and there is a chance they’ll regram – this means more people finding your fabulous feed!

Cake!

Things that go down really well on Instagram? Cake, cats, flowers, beautiful cities and…well..any food, really…

My Fave ‘Grammers

You’ve gotta share the love when it comes to Instagram! It’s such a wonderful community. These are the gals whose pictures I like again and again and again…

agirlastyle

Lots of pinks and lots of flowers! My friend Briony lives in Cambridge, and upload the prettiest, sugar-coated snaps from her surroundings.

truelane

If you love coffee, muted tones and beautiful blonde hair, Chelsea is your gal. Her pictures always make me feel so cosy and at home, even if they are shot halfway across the world in Minneapolis.

Carin is super well known and needs no introduction. This Swedish photographer left her country to move to Paris, and documents the beautiful city and everywhere else she travels in her amazing pictures. A total inspiration!

melinwonderland

Melina’s feed might be in Brazilian Portuguese, but that doesn’t mean I appreciate her fun snaps any less. This vlogger and I seem to have a lot in common, and I love the pictures she posts of her dog, Spock!

cocorosas

Chantal is another friend of mine, and her Instagram feed deserves serious love. It’s full of pastels, and a hell of a lot of pink – a total dream world.

Another top-notch Instagrammer! This Parisian shares photos of her city, alongside other beautifully curated images in the softest tones. One of my favourites!

techno dining

 

Imagine eating a 22 course meal while simultaneously being indulged in every sense, from everchanging murals to scents piped in for over-the-top aromas?  Sound crazy?  It’s already happening in Shanghai and other locales across the globe with “Multisensory Dining”, a concept that incorporates heightened emotion as a key component in this new gastronomic movement…coming to a McDonald’s near you?  Read about it here.

This is a beautify, clean concept. What do you think of it?

O projeto de hoje esbanja charme, apesar de sua pequena área e simplicidade estética! Veganista é a primeira sorveteria austríaca a vender somente sorvete vegano em Viena.  E esse conceito de produto é aplicado no projeto, através de elementos decorativos e cores simples! Nós achamos que a composição arquitetônica resultante deste conceito é muito interessante… um espaço aconchegante e que passa o frescor do produto. Nosso destaque especial para o piso em ladrilho hidráulico verde: lindíssimo e para a comunicação gráfica forte!

The project today exudes charm, despite its small area and aesthetic simplicity! Veganista is the first ice cream shop in Vienna to sell only vegan ice cream.

We find that architectural composition resulting from this concept is very interesting… a cozy space that passes product freshness. Our highlight to…
