What's in My Travel Make-Up Bag? | March 2014

Hi everyone,

Since I am going away I figured I would just multi-task packing while telling you guys what beauty products I am bringing on vacation.  Keep in mind this is a tropical vacation so I don't plan on wearing a lot of make-up there but I am bringing some products for dinners and more dresses up stuff.  If this uploads on the day it's supposed to I am currently in Cuba having a fabulous time.  I come home next Sunday, so if I don't know if I'm going to be able to write a blog post on time next week so please bare with me.  Hopefully, I can write a Cuba post eventually since I treat my blog as a little diary and maybe take some Style Diaries.  So I'm going to shut up and just get to the make-up I am bringing to Cuba...

So that is more or less all the make-up I'm bringing to Cuba.  I hope you all have a great week (or 2 weeks depending if I can make a post) and thank you so much for reading.  Feel free to leave a comment on your travel essentials as I am always open to suggestions.  So this is actually a week late, my resort didn't have internet so I could not upload last week.  Thanks for putting up with me though.  Love you all xx

How I Edit My Instagram Pictures

Hey everyone,

So today's post is a bit different.  I got an email from one of my lovely followers asking how I do collages and what apps I use for my Instagram pictures that I've featured on my blog and on my Tumblr.  I have to say that on my actual personal Instagram, I edit pictures much better than the pictures I feature of here or on my Tumblr just because that's more for style rather than purpose.

The ones I use the most are VSCOcam which is a free app.  I really like their filters and usually use F2 on my pictures, especially recently.  

My second most used app is Afterlight.  I believe this app is .99 cents but I use it to edit the brightness, exposure, contrast etc. for my pictures and I also use it to get the white (or any colour) backgrounds.  I used to use the filters on this app a lot but not so much anymore however, it is one of my favourite apps.  

PicStitch is one of my favourite and most useful apps.  I use it to create "Kylie Jenner" style Instagram pictures if I want to have more than one picture in a photo.  It all depends on what format you use and how you adjust it.  

I use TwinCollage mostly on my personal instagram when I want to pictures beside each other or on top of one another.  

Lastly, I use Reflexion obviously for pictures that I want reflected.  The other apps I don't use anymore but they're still on my phone.  

So those are the apps I use to edit my Instagram pictures.  I hope you all enjoyed this post and found it helpful.  Thank you so much for reading and next week I'm in Cuba so I am not sure if I will have time to make a post.  I'll write one and see if I get the chance to publish it while I'm there.  I love you all, have a good week loves x
