My Top 3 Phone Photo Editing Apps


I am sitting here at a film class my husband is teaching and I thought I would write a blog post I haven’t in a while and I miss it.

I do not edit all of my photos that I put on Facebook.  I normally just edited the ones I put on my blog or if I am putting them on Instagram and when I do that I normally use the Instagram Gingham filter love the Matte look.

However my favorite iPhone Apps when I do edit my photos are:

  • A Beautiful Mess Love this app for adding text and little doodles, and boarders. Also love using it for collages.  This is a photo I edited with this app.IMG_6137.jpg
  • Snapseed is a great app for basic editing.
  • Square ready This app is great for adding white space around the photo.  I love this for my Instagram. IMG_5286_Fotor_Collage.jpg

New Purse | What’s in my bag

Hello, I got a new purse this weekend so I though I would share my new bag and what I am carrying in it.


I was at a local Sportsman’s show the past weekend and this purse stood out to me the whole weekend.  So the last day I kept looking at it and trying to justify the spending.  Once I figured out it would be perfect for my camera gear for photoshoots as well as an everyday bag I was sold.  It was the most expensive purse I’ve actually bought myself but this purse is Concealed Carrie purse for more information you can visit the website @ .  This one is the Aged Brown Leather Satchel.



This is typically what I carry in all my bags.


The pink bag contains my checkbook, ipad/iphone charger, gum, and other misc small things.  The green coach bag contains my hearing aid batteries and parts, feminine products, and lotion.  The little blue thing with a bow is my cute little wallet my mom bought for me.  I always carry my iPad I love reading my books and watching the Tv Show  Younger on it in my free time.  Always have to have sunglasses and a pen.  I also take oatmeal to work for my breakfast and a magazine to skim through on my breaks.  Last but not least my Filofax.

DSC_0315-3 copy.jpgI use Lightroom 5 to edit my photos I love this editing program.  I was one of my best investments.  I prefer Lightroom over Photoshop for my photo editing.
