Jeej time to shop! While I’m busy shopping I’ve picked out some of my favorite items (which are already in my shopping bag). I’m obsessed with boots with high platforms lately, I love them! I’m also shopping for bikini’s and bathingsuits because every season is bikini season right?!

How I edit my Instagram photo’s

Since I get asked so many questions about how I edit my Instagram pics I decided to give you the answer here on my blog. I will tell you all my tips and tricks, which apps I use and what I do on these apps.

1. Facetune

The first app I use is Facetune. It’s an editing program. I use “heal” to delete small things in the photo. Sometimes this is a pimple or dirt in the background and sometimes it is to delete other people haha. I added an example of this for you guys. The photo below was taken in Bali. We wanted to take a cool picture with this amazing waterfall. There was almost no one there except for this one guy who was in every single shot. He stayed there the whole time… I didn’t know about the app Facetune so I was sooo frustrated haha. I’m happy I know it now, so I could delete his head out of my picture hehe.

In the example below you can see how I used “details” With details you can make parts of a photo sharper. I use this when I have a necklace on or something, or when I have braids or if I want to lay attention to a beautiful something in the background, like the pretty houses in Amsterdam in this photo.

Sometimes I also use “smooth”, this is like the name says to make some things smoother instead of sharper. This can be beautiful on the skin. But I must warn you to be careful with using Facetune, you don’t want your photo to look to fake or edited!

2. Snapseed

This is the second app I use. I use this app to make the photo lighter or darker or more colorful, things like that. I don’t really use this app so much, but for some photos it can be really nice. In the example, you can see how I made the sky darker. Sometimes I also make the sky lighter.

3. VSCO

This is the last app I use to give the photo a nice filter. My favourite filters are A6, S2, and HB2. I don’t always use the same, I just look which one looks best on the picture. In the example I used the filter A6.

I don’t always use all 3 apps. For some photos I only use a filter and edit nothing more, and some photos I edit a lot. It really depends on the kind of photo.  For example when the photo is taken in poor light (which you should always try to avoid) I edit a lot more then when the photo is taken in the right light.

Also, after editing my photo with one or more of these apps I sometimes add a little extra exposure or sharpness in Instagram before uploading it.

I hope this post helped anyone who is trying to up their Insta edititing game!:)

Winter Wonderland

Yay! It has been snowing the last couple of days! I have a love/hate relationship with snow. I am not really a winter person, but I’m always amazed by how beautiful it looks outside when it has been snowing. I love snow when I don’t have to go anywhere. When I can just play a little outside with my dog (who’s favourite season is the winter and is obsessed with snow) and spend the rest of the day inside with a blanked and a hot chocolate. I’m going to enjoy it as long as I can, since snowy days are rare here in the Netherlands:)
