When 2015 began, I asked about what many of you wanted to see up on my blog via my Facebook Page. While going through it, for some strange reason the ones about Instagram really caught my attention. Aside from natural lighting, a great background and a good eye, photo editing apps help enhance a photo to make it even better than it already it! To be entirely honest I’ve been avoiding this question for one obvious reason.. I wanted to keep these apps a secret. Aside from Instagram being such a big thing in my life — it’s the same for a lot of you as well. So, I gathered my top five Instagram editing tools to share with you. You won’t need to use everything all at once since you don’t want to over edit or filter anyway. So, without further adieu, I present to you all My Top Five Instagram Editing Tools!!
A plaid button down and a pleated distressed skirt.. Yes, that was what I wore when I visited my grandmother last weekend. I had plans of going out that evening so I thought of throwing on this outfit which I felt can work from day to night. The plan was just a casual nightout with friends, so something like this would definitely work. While getting ready, I couldn’t ignore my newly acquired shoes. These Jeffrey Campbell beauties are what I wanted to stand out in this outfit, all because they have the most interesting heels – or lack thereof. I also love the gold detail on the vamp. They look like the new age school shoes which I thought looked good with my sort of new age kind of schoolgirl look.
Last January 21st, I along with eight of my fellow Pond’s ambassadors took part in a salescon event for Unilever. I know this was all about the brand, but it was a great way to see these gorgeous ladies and catch up with them again! Before we knew it, it was our turn to get on the stage. Each of us #PondsGirls were presented one by one. They even showed a quote from each of our beautiful storiesas we walked on the stage. It was a great way to remind myself of what my #BeautifulStory is.
For this outfit, I kept things cool and simple with some black and white.. Here I go again with this gorgeous colour combination! Can you blame me? I wanted to use the LAMB heels I got a few days back so badly that I guess the colours followed through for my entire outift. Whenever I don’t have anything to wear (common girl problem, right?), I tend to lean towards and start sticking to neutrals, especially black and white. They just seem to work every single time! That’s why, putting those two colours in one outfit just makes for a perfect combo. So, I paired off my new pumps with an electric pleated leather skirt and a simple cropped top — but in order to add a bit of a contrasting detail, I brought my faux snake skin purse along with me and placed some coral coloured lipstick! I wore this to a meeting but I think I could’ve worn this out to a fancy dinner or to a bar with some friends. What do you think?
Being a blogger is a fantastic and exciting job but it can take a toll on my social life.. My personal social life that is. Yes, due to work, which I treasure a lot, it’s been difficult to just chill with friends — those friends, who I actually I grew up with. So, for my Fresh Start I made it a point to spend time with those friends of mine. Think of it as a New Years Resolution of some sorts.
It felt great to rekindle old traditions, chat about how it was like growing up with each other, what our lives are like now and everything in between. I really enjoyed this whole Fresh Start project that I, as well as my other blogger besties got to do. Because of this project, something positive came out of it. We each got to try out new things, commit to it, make it a priority and enjoy everything about it including learning life lessons. What about you guys, what is that one thing you’ve been wanting to do or try doing for the longest time? It is never too late to start, so, what are you waiting for? Start Mo Na!
