Beautiful Mess Photo App - Review/Lovesession!!!

A Beautiful Mess Photo App is here!
(photo cred: a beautiful mess)
As you'll learn (if you haven't already), my bloggy inspiration and general life inspiration came from following one of my favorite blogs....

A Beautiful Mess, Elsie and Emma are just so stinking cute and loveable and talented! I love everything about being on their blog - each post feels personal and fun and easy to connect with.

As if their brand couldn't get any better with the blog, clothing, books, and DIYs...they now have my new most favorite photo editing app!! I can already tell my photos will never be the same!! EEKS!


Here are some photo's I've edited using the app (as well as some of my favorite features)...

I love how you can make a photo more intersting whether it's subtle or a bigger change, you can bring LIFE to it, I mean, ok, you're capturing life, but you know what I mean!


Cake Attack!!! I used: Dreamland Filter & Phase: yum!
My entry way! Tootsy can now speak ;) I used: Dreamland Filter, Voice Bubble Doodle, & Font: Paper Cute
Wilson Phillips May 2013! I used the Poppy Filter, Phrase: Lovely, Font: Cocobella
My baby boo! I used the Poppy Filter, Circle Dotty Border, Font: Hello I Like You

I'm already completely in love with the Poppy Filter and Cocobella Font!
Recap: BEST APP EVERRRRRRRRRR!
So if you made it this far and still haven't downloaded the app.... GET ON IT! ;)

hello again.

it's been a while...

if any of you followed my tumblr version of this blog, you can see that i'm in a new space (yay!) and there will be a few changes.

first, i have to say how happy i am to be doing this again. it allows me to be creative and share my thoughts with the world - but also attacks the perfectionist in me. before, i had put SO much pressure on myself for every post to be perfect and planned, etc...etc... that it turned into something that i'm not ready for, maybe someday, but not now.

i am also making a commitment to be more vulnerable. i remember wanting to talk about boys or dating and then being terrified that if i began to date someone and they saw this, maybe they would judge me, have opinions, or possibly feel threatened that i would share things here. i definitely think that some things are meant to be kept private or with a select few friends, but at the same time, i love learning from other people and want to allow other people to maybe learn for my mistakes/successes.

basically, i want this place to feel organic (at least for the time being) and unplanned and just enjoy it.

what you can still expect:
occasional sundays with stan
etiquette wins and fails
what i find pinteresting
and some more added newness...



here we go!
