Favorite Instagram Apps

One of the number 1 questions I am asked is what filter I use on my Instagram photos. I wrote a blogpost on How I Edit My Instagram Photos, but thought I’d update you with my new favorite instagram apps that I’m using most of the time these days.

Here are my current favorite Instagram apps…

  1. Afterlight – This was one of the first apps I downloaded when Instagram launched. I love using the “dusty” tool and “light leak” tool on some of my photos.
  2. Retouch – This is also another app I’ve been using for awhile now. I use this app to remove blemishes or stamp out any little distracting objects in my photos, like clean the floor or remove a person in the background if I feel it is too distracting. It’s such an awesome app and really think everyone should download it. For me, it’s convenient and easier than having to upload iPhone photos on my desktop. I can edit while I’m on the go.
  3. Snapseed – I use this app to control the lighting or tones on my photos. For example, if one side of my face or body looks darker than the other side, I can easily edit through this app.
  4. Facetune – I use this app mainly to lightly smooth out any blemish, but I keep it to a minimum. I don’t like to overly edit my face or skin. This app also has a stamp tool called “patch”, which also removes objects. This app is very convenient, especially when I need to edit images for clients. I can sharpen or enhance details with the “details” tool. I can whiten out an object that looks too warm or yellow with the “whiten” tool.
  5. A Beautiful Mess (aka ABM) – This app has doodles, borders, backgrounds, and phrases, which allows you to create quotes or any text you’d like. I like to use this for either clients or for Insta Stories.
  6. Squaready – I use this app to resize an image. For example, if a photo doesn’t fit on Instagram or Insta Stories, I will sometimes use this app.
  7. Layout – I rarely use this app, but when I do it’s to create collages. I use this more for clients.
  8. VSCO – An oldie but goodie. I mainly use this app for the filters, along with the other featured tools, which I shared the exact filters I use on this blogpost here.
  9. Hyperlapse – I use this app sometimes for when I upload videos on my Insta Stories, or when I announced my pregnancy on Instagram here. It’s a fun app to fast forward or slow down any video you create.
  10. SquareadyV – Similar to Squaready, except this app can resize videos instead of photos. It’s convenient to have when certain videos do not fit on Instagram or Insta Stories.

 

Well, there you have it. An updated list of my favorite Instagram apps I’m using at the moment. I’d love to hear about the apps you use. Please feel free to share below or find me on Instagram @melrodstyle. 🙂

Instagram Photo Trends and Tips

Instagram Photo Trends Tips. Started from the bottom now we’re here. Literally. Let’s just say my Instagram feed has come a long way. This post was inspired by @travel_inhershoes – an influencer I follow. As you can see from my feed above, my instagram wasn’t always so pleasing to the eye, in other words “pretty” or consistent. There wasn’t a story or a consistent flow. It was definitely all over the place – a hot mess. You see, I was blogging before Instagram was around, and Instagram was all so new to a lot of people and a lot of influencers. The point I’m trying to make is that it’s ok that you didn’t begin with a pretty feed. Although I’ve wanted to delete all these old photos on my feed, I’m glad I didn’t. I like that I can look back and see how much I’ve grown and how much I’ve learned being in this industry. It’s almost like a photo album or a yearbook. I love seeing my growth from the ground up. This right here reminds me that I should never compare myself or feel discouraged when I see other people’s feeds, because at some point, their feeds were not the prettiest… unless of course you’re new to instagram – and if that’s the case then, congrats. 😉

I wanted to share this post in hopes to inspire and bring some light to other new influencers or anyone wanting to start a blog. If you ever feel lost or wanting to give up, just remember that not everyone started at the top, and there is hope, (take me for instance) lol. No, but seriously it’s all about finding the right filters or tones that work best for your feed and remain consistent.

I wanted to share how much instagram – or in my case my instagram feed, has evolved throughout the years.

In 2012, it was all about wrist/arm candy shots with this bubble dreamy filter effect.

In 2013, from above shoe shots and flat lays of clothing items were so on trend.

In 2014, collages and side-by-side shots of OOTDs were so in.

In 2015-2016, whiting out, over editing the backgrounds and brightening the entire photo was very popular. Making sure there were no distracting objects beside you or in the background of your photos were very important.

In 2017, we began seeing more natural tones, and leaving the backgrounds as is, with minor edits. Also, when Kim Kardashian returned to Instagram, everyone went wild with her vintage/grainy aestetic, or better known as HB1 and HB2 filters from VSCO app. We then started to see more raw and not-so-perfect photos. Not that people stopped caring about their feeds, it was just more acceptable to have an imperfect photo, which was nice. The grain tool was and still is very popular, along with the “dusty” editing tool on Afterlight app. Also, blurry and out of focus photos were most accepting and less frown upon than what they were back in the day, which I’m not mad about. Hyperlapse, Hype Type, 8MM, Boomerang and Kirakira were among other top apps.

Today, we are still seeing similar trends from 2017, like blur and out of focus photos, the grain tool, and more use of Afterlight app, along with Tezza’s presets that I think had the world mad about. Mad in a good way. As much as I do like her presets, I think it is important to not just slap a filter on your photos because everyone else is using it or because it works for others. Chances are it won’t look the same, especially on different skin tones. If I can give a quick tip on editing Instagram photos, I would say to pay attention to your skin, and edit based off what is going to be more appealing and look best with your skin tone. I say this from experience because I use to up the brightness and highlight tool on my photos so much that I would forget about what my skin tone looked like. I look back at most photos and see how overly blown out my skin looked. For me personally, I like my skin to look as close as possible as it does in real life. Don’t get me wrong, when I’m not tanned, I do up the saturation or skin tone tool a bit, however; I make sure I don’t look too orange or oompa loompa-ish if this makes sense.

Again, this is my preference and believe that everyone has the right to edit their photos however they wish to. If looking orange or any other color is your thing, then by all means, do you boo. There is no right or wrong. I’m simply sharing this information based off my trial and errors and experience throughout the years, and I’m not saying I’m right. Just wanted to share my thoughts and tips. So please be kind in the comment section below. 🙂

I hope this information is helpful, and as always if you have any other questions, please let me know. Leave a comment below or DM on instagram @melrodstyle. I’m really curious to know what you guys think about this topic. Feel free to share.

Stay tuned, as I will be drafting a blogpost on my favorite instagram editing apps soon.

Reflecting 2017

And just like that, 2017 has come to an end (cue the tears). As I think to myself, and look back on the good, the bad, and the ugly, I must say this year was one to remember. Reflecting on the amazing moments, the heartaches, the loss, new memories made, what 2017 is going to bring 2018, I really don’t know how I truly feel about this year. I can’t say it was the worse year.

What I can say about 2017, is that I am thankful, grateful, blessed for all the opportunities that have come my way, for being able to live through another year.

I usually don’t make resolutions – not because I can never keep them, but because everything that happens in life happens for a reason, whether explained or not. These are either blessings or lessons. What I do like to do each year is just try to be a better me the following year, and to continue to do good in this world. I’ll be the first to say, I’m not a perfect person (but who is, am I right?) I’m far from it. I have many flaws, countless flaws, I make mistakes, but I also make good choices. And I think that’s ok.

This year, George and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary. I still cannot believe that it has been over a year that we’ve been married. Time sure does fly when you’re having fun.

I got to travel to new places and revisit some old ones.

We lost our baby Kujo this year, which was probably the most difficult thing that has happened in my life. I miss him terribly. George and I were not prepared for 2017 to be the last year with him.

I celebrated one year of being my own boss. That’s kind of cool.

And the most amazing thing happened to George and I. We found out that we would be parents in 2018. That’s really really cool! We still cannot believe it and are beyond excited about the news. More baby stuff to come soon.

Lastly, I’d like to thank all my readers and internet friends for the continuous support of MelRodStyle. You guys are truly the best fam a gal can ever ask for. Thank you for supporting my blog and social media outlets. Thank you for following my journey, and I hope you continue to stay along for the ride, because 2018 is going to be a wild one!

Cheers and Happy New Year! 2018 is going to be LIT!!!

I love the holidays only because everyone is always so merry and gay and full of love and happiness, and I love it all. I wish we could all be this way all year long and not just around the holidays – but something about the holidays and this time of year just makes you feel this way, and puts you in a jolly ol’ mood. Agree or disagree?

Here are 5 things I’m looking forward to this holiday…

  1. Spending time with friends and family.
  2. Playing games, like Catch Phrase and Cards Against Humanity. So much fun!
  3. New Years is by far one of my favorite holidays to celebrate. I love dressing up and being so festive and surrounded by the most important people in my life.
  4. I love watching Christmas movies.
  5. And last but not least (my favorite favorite of all favorite things), I’m so ready for Tamales!

The Bahamas

Picture perfect beaches is what makes the Bahamas such a popular travel and insta-worthy destination. Every year for my birthday, we try to take a trip somewhere in warmer temps, especially since my birthday is in December and it’s usually cold.

What to do and what to see

DOWNTOWN, BAHAMAS: We stayed at the Riu hotel, a short taxi ride to downtown. Downtown was filled with lots of shopping and places to eat. Definitely a place to find great food.

EXUMA, BAHAMAS: The Bahamas is also known for swimming with pigs and sharks. That’s exactly what George and I did: the Exuma excursion, which I highly recommend anyone traveling to the Bahamas to do. We took a 30 minute plan ride to Exuma, where we then took a short boat ride to our first stop: the swimming pigs. The pigs were not shy at all, which is why our tour guide recommended we be careful when feeding them. They were super comfortable with people, especially if you had food (obvi).

We then took another short boat ride to our second location: swimming with nurse sharks (insert nervous emoji here). I was super nervous and anxious just because… well SHARKS, duh!don’t freak out, don’t freak out. Again, our tour guide made sure we understood the rules when swimming with these sharks because they could bite. Luckily, I made it back with all limbs, phew. It was honestly not as bad as it seemed. Now I can say I swam with sharks.

Third location was the sand beach – one of my favorites. It’s one of those places where it just looks better in person. Photos just didn’t do it justice. It was beautiful. I could’ve stayed there all day. Lunch was next, and it was ah-mazing! I had the chicken sandwich and George had the fish burger. It was so fresh and delicious.

Our last stop for the day was the iguana beach, where we got to feed them. They were also very friendly and not shy at all. So glad I could check this off my bucket list!

ROSE ISLAND: We also visited the Rose Island, a secluded island where we got to swim in the ocean, snorkel, have delicious Bahamian food, and see more pigs.

This trip was definitely one for the books, and a birthday trip to remember. It was so much fun and I had a blast. Spending it with George and close friends. What more can a gal want? Amirite? 😉 Best birthday EVER!

Black Friday Sales

How many of you camped out late last night for Black Friday Sales? How many are out shopping right now? And how many of you are like me doing all the black Friday holiday shopping in the comfort of you home (or in bed)? I’m definitely avoiding any interaction with anyone today and doing all my shopping online. It’s easier, safe, less stressful, and you can stay in your pajamas all day, I mean. Does it get any better than that? NO!

Light Layers

Since there’s really no sign of Fall anywhere, light layers it is.

I shot this look in the arts district – one of my favorite places to shoot, for obvious reasons. Endless walls, every corner looks different, multiple outfit shots are a breeze around here. It’s just very convenient and easy to shoot around the arts district when you have more than one look to shoot. Quick outfit change in the car? Boom!

Today’s look is brought to you by this heat. Light layers was the closest look I was able to pull off for “fall”.

What are some of your go-to looks right now? Where are some of your favorite locations to shoot?

Happy Wednesday everyone!

You guys! A little birdie told me that Shopbop is having a MAJOR sale right now until this Friday 9/29. And not just any ordinary sale – I’m talking sitewide discounts! Everything on their website is on sale…. I know, I can’t handle it either. This is the perfect opportunity to shop items that normally sit in my shopping cart that I never check out. Also, the perfect opp to shop key items, like coats, bags and shoes – items I would wear over and over again that will actually get good wear out of throughout the year that will never go out of style.

From women’s clothing to bags to shoes to accessories, even men’s. They have it all, and it’s all on sale.

These Quay sunglasses pictured above are on sale right now. Click here to shop them now. Plus there are many similar bags like the one above that are discounted at a very good price. Click here to shop all round bags.

Spend up to $500, and get 20% off your order with code EOTS17

OR

Spend over $500, and get 25% off your order with code EOTS17

 

Here are my favorites from the Shop sale event. P.S. I suggest you run don’t walk to your computer and start shopping, because this sale ends this Friday September 29th. So hurry!

Happy Wednesday, happy shopping!
