Oh hello, June, where did you come from?  Seriously how is it June already? I'm going to try and make the most of summer this year - despite everything else being rubbish. I'm going to enjoy myself and have fun in the sun. Sound like a good plan, doesn't it? ⠀

Oh hello, June, where did...

I must admit that I did get bored with balcony/mirror outfit pictures and wanted a more nature/organic photos backdrop. Well now summer is right around the corner, and the sun is indeed shining, and with news that lockdown resections are now easing, I now thought it was the perfect opportunity to go out into the wood and show you this floral Zara dress.⠀
I brought this dress at the very beginning of this year and was keen to show you guys this as I think it a lovely summer dress to wear, plus, I also thought it would go nicely with my red hat.⠀
For someone who has been cooped up, I must admit that it was nice to go into my local woodland and to walk around for an afternoon. I think it was also lovely for Richard, my husband, to pick up his camera again and to take some photos. The whole pandemic has put a pause on his professional photographer profession, and he hasn’t needed to use his camera much.⠀
It was lovely to put on a dress and to make myself look a little presentable. It got me out of my loungewear for an afternoon. The experience made me feel a little more like myself, and it put me in a good mood. As much as I like comfy loungewear, I’m still someone who wants to dress up.⠀
I’m hoping I can go out more this summer, of course still observing the social distancing rule, and doing more outdoor outfit photos. I’m also hoping this summer to wear more of my summer outfit and to feel more like myself.⠀

Usually, when I do an outfit post or picture, I like to dress up and show you some pretty dress. But this time I thought I would show you a few of my casual wear and what I wear on a day to day basis. I must admit, as much as I love to dress up, I wouldn't exactly go to Tesco in them. So on a day to day basis, I'm usually in jeans and a top. ⠀

If I were to describe my style, it would be summed up in two words: quirky and fun. I'm sure you realise by now I don't like boring black fashion – I do fun, bright, colourful style. Case in point is this Collectif watermelon dress. You can't get more quirky and fun fashion than this, can you?⠀
I like my clothes to reflect a lot of my personality, eternally youthful while also quirky and fun. Yup, that pretty much summed up me. The saying, you are who you are by the clothes you wear, really does hold up with me.⠀
I'm still that little girl who had a dressing up box as a child and would play dress-up; now I just have a wardrobe filled with more clothes than I could ever need as my dressing up box. I still like to have fun with my clothes, and I haven't lost that childhood wonder about clothes. And I don't think I ever will.⠀
Overall, what I'm saying is that this Collectif watermelon dress reflects who I am as a person and also my style. I also believe it represents how fashion shouldn't be all serious; it should be fun and should put a smile on a person's face.⠀

Apps I use for Instagram

Talking about recently the 5 phone apps I can’t live without got me thinking, what apps I can’t live without when using Instagram. So here are the various apps I use for Instagram.

I must confess, I don’t actually do much photo editing on my actual phone or tablet. I prefer editing on my desktop, as it easier to actually edit on my Photoshop program and does mean I can keep a carbon copy of the files without actually deleting it by mistake (done that too many time).

I also sometimes find that editing a photo on a phone or tablet can be pretty fiddling and annoying. That not to say I don’t edit any photos on my devices because I do, or otherwise we wouldn’t be here. But I only tend to do a few little adjustments and also, usually when I’m nowhere near my desktop and just want to edit quickly some silly phone photos I took.

Editing photos aside, I have built quite a small collection of editing photo apps and in some case, I do use them for Instagram. Mainly for Instagram stories than my main feed – but if I’m honest, they do help and make my Instagram stories photos look professional.

So with that said, if you are starting out on Instagram or need some new editing apps to try out. Here are the various apps I use for Instagram.

VSCO:

I’m starting with a firm favourite, especially if you are looking to create a theme on your Instagram feed. This lets you put a filter/preset on your photos, making your photos have a certain look to it. For example, you might want your photos to have a traditional film camera look to it. I have found my photos has improved dramatically since using it.

Flickr:

I must have been the last person on earth that twigged that you can use your Flickr profile in conjunction with Instagram. What I tend to do is save my photo on Flickr on my desktop, then transfer the photo to Instagram on my phone. So much easier and trust me before I realize this – I was doing it the long hard way.

Snapseed:

I’m sure you have heard of this app. I like to use this for my Instagram stories. It another editing photo apps, but you can play around and add various filters, texts and frames. I find this useful to add texts to my photos.

Adobe Apps: Lightroom/Photoshop/Photoshop Express:

I believe the Adobe apps: Lightroom and Photoshop are part of the package when you choose their photography subscription. While Photoshop Express anyone can download. If editing photos on a desktop not your thing and prefer doing it on your devices; then you will need these apps. It does a lot of what the desktop version does

Camera connect:

This is only if your camera has a wifi comparability, not all camera has this. My Canon 6D does, so this means I can automatically link my camera to my phone and download photos instantly. I should warn you, this is only good for jpg files – not raw camera files.

Unfold:

I feel I should mention Unfold as I do use it a little bit. If I’m honest, I’m not that impressed with the app. It doesn’t work well on Android. This lets you create frames and on IG stories have multiple photos on one slide.

Those were the apps I use for Instagram. Let me know what you use for Instagram.
