30 day snap in one post, Go!

I has come to the end of the 30 day snap and I have had a great time taking pictures everyday for a month. Some days I did struggle with taking a picture to represent my day and others were simple with too many pictures to choose from.

I like the idea of doing a photo a day for a year, but I'm not too sure if I would enjoy it for that long and if it would become a chore rather than an enjoying project to complete. Have any of you out there completed a 365 day snap? How did you get on with it and is it like how I imagine?

If you missed my 30 Day Snap here is a quick run through of the pictures below so you don't have to visit every post 30 times. I was going to use this as my day 30 snap but I decided not to cheat and included one from today as well.  

I am thinking about doing a weekly snap similar to Lily Pebbles. I'll test it out for the month of July and see how I get on.

Day 30 of 30 day snap

This is the very last day of 30 day snap, sad face. 

Today I went out shopping with my dad and picked up a few bits. Firstly, I went to Maplin to get a lens cleaning pen for my camera. Only £4.99 for this, it comes with a small brush and carbon pads which have replacements in the box. 

I also picked up my favourite nail polish remover and then thought I would buy some nail polish remover pads to go in my handbag for those just in case days.

Day 29 of 30 day snap

This morning London was gearing up for Gay Pride Parade. It was great to see the streets pedestrianised and everyone had come out. I didn't know it was Gay Pride until about 3pm this afternoon, when I stepped out on the terrace at work and looked out onto Old Compton Street and saw this sea of party people. Soho was packed full and I left work through the back door because of the street below. The sun shone all day and I was locked up in work. I also missed the London Bloggers Party today something I would have loved to have visited and met some other London bloggers. 

What have you done today?

Day 27 of 30 day snap

Day 27 of 30 day snap a few weeks ago I bought a necklace from Primark, which didn't have enough L's to spell my name. Rebecca brought her jewellery tools to fix them for me. Now I can spell my name  on my necklace. Yay!  I was vey impressed with the work she did.  

What have you done today?

A Beautiful Mess

A few weeks back I discovered the app A Beautiful Mess. I regularly check Instagram throughout my day and upload a few pictures whilst I am there. I noticed that some of the people I follow had fancy designs on their images and phrases. I had also noticed this on images on people had uploaded to their blog. I took the plunge and asked an Instagramer - that I follow, I cannot remember which one, -where they got the design from and this is when I discovered A Beauitful Mess. It cost me 69p from the iTunes Store, but it was worth it as it enhances your pictures and gives it a cool look. 

When you first open the app you can choose to upload your own picture or use a background on the app, which ever one you choose you can add your own designs to it. 

I thought I would write a blog post on A Beautiful Mess as they provided an update today that came with 30 more free designs which included new fonts, new doodles and phrases. When I updated my app I was pleased to see the upgrade and immediately started playing with it. I am really impressed with this app with the cool designs and phrases. They only downside about this app is that it only has 6 filters, I just wish they had more. 

Anyway, let me explain the app - you choose your image, add a filter if you want, a design, phrase or some text. 

Then once you have finished playing around you are left with a lovely image with a cool new design

Once you have finished the app asks if you want to start again, share or read their blog. It is very cool and I recommend purchasing this app. 

I am interested to find out which app I can purchase, providing it is not too expensive, to get the cool filters or the camera glare that makes spots or hearts on the picture. As seen in fleurdeforce Instagram below. Can any of you out there recommend any?
