Instagram



well i am WAY overdue for an instagram post! i'll try to do these more often and not let it get this long again because there are a LOT of photos here. but as you can see my style of editing my instagram photos has changed a few times recently and you can see the different phases i've gone through. i've always hated the preset instagram filters because you have so little control of how the photos turn out. i actually use between 2 & 4 apps when editing my photos before putting them on instagram and i've tried SO many more than this - i've been thinking of doing a bit of a review of some of my favourite apps if anyone would be interested?

anyway, above you can see two photos from my nanna's house, the laduree counter at the new store in sydney, fairy lights at the night noodle markets, a bit of record shopping, some early spring flowers and my beautiful oui / non asos bracelets on my new favourite velvet skirt.



brian greene's the fabric of the cosmos which i've finally finished reading! pressed lavender, raspberry jam & cream cheese bagel, more pressed flowers, pages from jonathan safran-foer's tree of codes, my collection of 7"s, my diana f+ tote bag, postcards of my favourite authors on my wall, the birthday macarons i bought myself from laduree and the first cherry blossoms of spring. :)




a few outfits, gelato burgers from messina, instax photos from melbourne, my burgundy blouse with velvet collar, delicious looking cakes from luxbite in melbourne, asos loveboat shoes, my galaxy skirt that i wore in celebration the day they announced the higgs boson particle was found, about a quarter of the books on my bookshelf, me with my friend's adorable little puppy, nick cave's murder ballads on vinyl, kitty flats, and my first wheels & dollbaby piece of clothing (finally)!




me fixing my friend's record player, a festive cadbury screme egg my brother bought for me, childish gambino's camp on vinyl, the view from my nanna's house, grapevines hanging from the ceiling at a dumpling restaurant i went to, my red velvet boots and black creepers and the most amazing shirt covered in baked goods.




pancakes on the rocks, my nanna's street and a clock in her house, some books i found at the markets for $1 each (i already owned ariel but it was so cheap i bought it again), more new vinyl (nas, gallows and the gaslight anthem - yes my music taste is ALL OVER THE PLACE, haha), pies from the pie tin on my birthday, my glittery black brogues that make me feel like michael jackson, my trip to the aquarium last weekend and my halloween "costume" aka me wearing kitty ears!

if you'd like to holla @ me on instagram i'm littlehenrylee over there too. :)

  3. Oh, I love these photos! The aquarium looks like a lot of fun!

    What other apps do you use to edit your photos? I'm always looking for new things to try.

  4. I simply adore your Instagram photos! At first, I quite liked the default filters, but after constantly seeing your images, I started to get bored and I just had to ask what apps you use because they were so beautiful. I've only ever really used two or three of the Instagram filters, anyway. You wouldn't think your Instagram photos are simply taken with a good old iPhone. So pretty. :) I know you've told me what apps you use, but I'd love to see a separate post, I think it would be interesting!

    1. aww, thank you! i might do another instagram post a lot sooner than i did this last one so there aren't as many photos, haha. and then review some apps in that post and list my favourite ones. i used to like some of the instagram filters too when i first started using it but there were always a few i stuck with and a whole lot that were unusable because they're far too strong. it's a shame you can't customise them a bit more! but the other apps i use do a much better job anyway so it's okay with me. :)
