Best iPhone Photo Apps (2013 Edition)
An updated list of my favorite iPhone photo apps. 95% of the time, these are the apps responsible for the photos I post on Instagram.
Afterlight - Formerly known as Afterglow. It’s a powerful image editing app with over 100 of filters and textures. This is currently my second favorite photo editor app.
Cost: $0.99 and so worth it.
VSCO Cam - My favorite right now. I love the filters created bythe VSCO team, so much that I also bought their Film 2 and 4 (which I’ve been using for my England posts). THE BUNDLE IS WORTH IT.
Cost: Free, but the bundle cost $5.99. The price is worth it for the quality and output.
Instagram - Of course. What’s the point of taking iPhone photos if you won’t be able to share it real-time? I’m not a big fan of their filters but the community’s great. Follow me, yeah?
Classic Insta - My “food and product” app. I constantly find myself using this app if I want to feature our meal or recent hauls.
Hello Camera - I don’t know what’s the difference but this is like an improved version of Camera 360. I use this for my selfies, when I’m having a bad skin day.
A Beautiful Mess - An app created by Elsie and Emma of the award-winning lifestyle blog, A Beautiful Mess. Not a favorite but I like to use this app for the handmade feel of the stickers, borders and handwriting. Not that worth it though.
Incredibooth - A photobooth in your pocket. In my opinion, this is the ultimate selfie app. Well, I like using this app when I’m being vain. I also prefer this app than the Pocketbooth.
Cost: $0.99 and worth it if you’re into selfies, lol
PicFrame - I use this app to combine multiple images in one photo a.k.a. a photo collage.
Cost: $0.99, but I believe I got this app for free.
Whitagram - If I’m not editing a photo using Afterlight, I use this to upload portraits and landscape photos.
Cost: Free… I think.
Over - This and Phoster is my favorite when it comes to adding texts on photos. But unlike Phoster, Over has more freedom and options.
In case you’re interested, you can read my old iPhone apps review/list here.
Manchester is the second largest urban area of the UK, and the world’s first industrialised city. This is clearly evident from their city’s architecture and huge Museum of Science and Industry (MoSI).
Unfortunately, Lucy and I didn’t have enough time to roam around the city (we were supposed to tour the Old Trafford, huhu) because we had a little car trouble. But given that UK’s night time starts at 9PM during the summer, we walked around the city even if most establishments are already close (We arrived in Manchester around 6PM). The look and feel of this city reminds me so much of Quiapo, but 100x cleaner and safer.
Three Minute Makeup Challenge
Take two of my three minute makeup challenge. This time the video and audio quality is a wee bit better. The Nikon D90 is not recommended for videos. I also found a spot and a mirror to do videos, provided nobody is home cause that would be awkward lol.
Anyway, I hope you like it and if you’re planning to make your own version, please send me the link for I would love to watch it. xx
After my literary adventure in Stratford-upon-Avon, the wonderful people of the Youth Hostel Association decided to book me in a one of a kind hostel: The Wilderhope Manor.
The manor is a beautiful but seemingly creepy 16th-century Elizabethan manor located in the center of Shropshire (West Midland). While the manor was converted into a hostel, majority of the structure and design is preserved by the National Trust. I’ll write more about the hostels I stayed in after my BigBlogX series.
My stay at Shropshire was more of a timeout from all the stress and excitement caused by the competition. I spent the whole day appreciating the vast greenery of the countryside while listening to UK band duo, Disclosure.
