7 Best Photo Editing Apps

If I had to pick only one form of social media, Instagram would win. I love being able to see what a my friends see and follow along with their adventures. Instagram is also a great way to keep track of your own trips. For example, I always use #MochiAroundTheWorld so that I can easily look back on photos from some of the trips that Matt and I have taken together. And since I don’t always have my DSLR with me, I’ve done my best to figure out how to take the best pictures possible using my phone. These are the apps that I use to edit the photos before sharing them.

7 Best Photo Editing Apps


7 Best Photo Editing Apps - Afterlight
This is probably my favorite App. I love to use the clarifying, brightness, and contrast tools and occasionally the filters.


I love VSCO Cam. While the actual camera is okay, I mainly use the app for editing photos. Besides Afterlight, VSCO Cam has my favorite range of filters.

GoPro App

7 Best Photo Editing Apps - GoPro
Probably the coolest app on this list. I can use the app to control of (take pictures / videos with) my GoPro. It also lets me browse through all of the photos stored on the memory card. If you have a GoPro, make sure you download this app immediately!


7 Best Photo Editing Apps - Whitagram
I don’t like having to crop photos when I upload them to instagram so I almost always upload them using Whitagram. The app adds a white boarder (either horizontal or vertical depending on how you take the photo) so that the whole image can show up on the gramz. #necessary.


Sometimes you find an adorable video of @BiddyTheHedgehog playing with a dog and you need to share it with the world. Thankfully all your reposting dreams can come true with Repost

A Beautiful Mess App

7 Best Photo Editing Apps - A Beautiful Mess
Fun collage formats, filters, borders, doodles, text, and phrases. I kind of hate to admit it, but I love this app.


My favorite app to use when I need to make that perfect photo collage for the instagrams.

What are your favorite photo editing apps?

Feel free to play this song while you the post. It kind of sums up my feelings towards social media in the last few weeks. Is it weird to relate a song about a failed relationship to my relationship with social media?! Regardless, it is a beautiful song
Lately by The Helio Sequence on Grooveshark

Lately … I’ve been completely overwhelmed busy by work. I know that I’m lucky that I absolutely love the work that I do and I never dread going to work (except when I’m sleep deprived). But the last few weeks have been exhausting. Luckily the busiest part of the season will be done in the next week or so!

Lately … I’ve been ignoring this blog, other blogs, those beautiful sponsors to your right, email, and social media due to all that work I’ve been doing. But starting Friday I get my (part of) weekends back. I can’t wait to reengage in the social media world .. and the real world with my friends.

Lately … I’ve been excited for all my book club reads being turned into movies. Gone Girl was incredible (understatement?) and I can’t wait for Before I Go To Sleep.

Lately … I’ve been getting into essential oils. Not that I know anything about them but I may or may not have had a little impulse buying spread in which I bought 10 small bottles of Doterra essential oils.

Lately … I’ve been getting excited for Halloween. I absolutely love handing out candy and might have bought 450 pieces today.

Lately … I’ve been getting extremely excited for wedding planning. We’re a little behind schedule on some tasks (sorry, Stacy!) but I’m hoping on completing three incredibly fun tasks in the next few weeks … which might include dress shopping.

Lately … I’ve been feeling extremely grateful for the people in my life.

I originally had another post scheduled for today but then I saw this clip from John Oliver’s hilarious television show (Last Week Tonight) and needed to share it with everyone. The video gets good around 1:45, I promise.
