HOW I EDIT MY INSTAGRAM

Curating a cohesive-ish "Instagram theme" has turned into one of my favorite hobbies. Over the years, I have downloaded many apps that have helped me achieve the perfect "feed". Many of you message me asking about what apps I use so I decided to write a whole post about it!

These three apps I use on almost all of my photos before posting to the 'gram:

1. VSCO 
Yes, the link you see in everyone's Instagram bio! I have been using this app for about five years before I started my blog,  I would post to my VSCO feed as a creative outlet. 

I used to use the filter "A5" after whitening the background on all of my photos to create a "cool-toned" feed:



Now, I use a combination of VSCO's filter "A4" with a bunch of other apps for a more fun "warm-toned" vibe:




Lightroom CC is one of the more recent apps I've downloaded. This is the app I use before putting VSCO's "A4" filter on my pics. 

I like to make my skin look a bit more tan by turning down the orange luminance and bringing up the saturation. 




Then, I like to make the yellow tones appear whiter so I turn up the yellow luminance and bring down the saturation. Which will whiten your teeth and get rid of yellow tones in your hair.



If there are blue tones in the photo I'm editing I will make them appear more turquoise by moving the tone down and bring the saturation up.



Depending on what colors are in the photo that I'm editing most of the time I won't touch any other colors.  


The last thing I do on this app is, add a "grain" effect.



The stars, roses and stickers I add to my photos all come from this app! You can create your own stickers or just use the ones they have. If a photo I took looks a little boring or I want to cover something up, I will add a fun sticker. 



I hope this post helps you create a dope feed! Dm me with any other questions you might have.

PRODUCTIVE FRIDAY VIBES

You know those mornings when you wake up to the rain falling down & it makes you crave a lazy day in bed? That was totally me this morning but I decided to get the f*** up and try to be productive. On the days I want to get things done, comfy-cute is my go-to style! A baggy sweatshirt, stretchy jeans, and booties because for some reason when I wear heels I feel like I can accomplish anything.


SHOP MY LOOK:

TOP: zara.com - They are sold out! Click this: asos.com link for a VERY similar one!

JEANS: revolve.com - Linked a lighter wash that is cheaper and cuter for spring.

BOOTIES: prettylittlething.com - These booties are snake-print and my favorite right now.

HAIR TIE: hm.com  - Mine is sold out, but the one I linked is in my shopping cart at the moment!

BAG: tjmaxx.com - I love this bag, the only color left is pink and I think I need it now.

ROSES: $2.00 from Aldi.












I hope this post inspires you not to have a lazy day!
