Hi friends! Welcome to a late-night edition of Technology Tuesday! Why a late night post? Well if you were on Instagram today, your feed may have been abuzz with darling doodles from the newest Instagram app called A Beautiful Mess! It’s an app developed and designed by Elsie and Emma – the gorgeous gals behind A Beautiful Mess – the blog. And because you know I love Instagram, and I love y’all, I wanted to be sure you knew about it! At just $.99 – go snag it now. And I mean NOW. You’re not going to find a better photo app for that price in the market. Trust me – I’ve just about bought them all!
What does the app do? It has fun filters, inspired by the photography genius of Elsie and Emma. You can start with fun backgrounds (I think the library card background is my fave!). You can add text or fun pre-written phrases. And lastly you can add cute borders and pre-drawn doodles (like arrows and speech bubbles). Seriously a whole lotta fun in one little app. You can also buy small add-on packages if there are additional features that you want.
So what are you waiting for? Go download it from iTunes today. Android users, looks like you might have to wait a bit. Let’s hope that the gals are inundated with cash flow that they feel compelled to get a start on Google Play! Oh and a quick shoutout to my fabulous gal pals (shown above) who I think got it right today with their Beautiful Mess photo styling: @mrsemshhh, @theblueeyedowl, @aplaceforus, @fancythingsblog, @blogali, @chevronstitches, @antlersandroses and @bettinakina. Thank you ladies for your continued inspiration!
And if you’re sick of it already – just hang in there. I was dying at first because I couldn’t get on wifi to download it and my feed was inundated, so I get the frustration. But it’s like a new pet, people are all gaga over the puppy stage. Things will surely die down. Oh and for those of you who do snag the app, please don’t doodle up every image. Sometimes less is more – right? I have countless photo apps, but sometimes there’s something to a simple, beautiful image. So let’s go out there and have some fun and let our creativity run wild. See you on Instagram!
