...Read More »I have a slight obsession with Instagram. I love the pretty pictures and the encouraging and positive community. Because my blog is primarily dedicated to style, beauty and fashion, Instagram has become a huge part of my work as well -- whether I am taking pictures to share with my audience or browsing Instagram for inspiration.
9 apps to help you take the best photos ever
I probably take about 20 photos a day, although I only post 4-5 and, embarrassingly enough, it takes me about 3-5 minutes to process each picture. What, with all the different tools and filters, there's a lot of thought that goes into posting the best possible version of your photo! There are a ton of apps out there to help you get it right -- in fact, using these apps can be as fun as using Instagram itself! Here are my favorite iPhone apps that help me take fun and pretty photos, and some tips for taking photographs when you're out and about.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Don't be ruthlessly self-interested today -- and not because delaying your selfishness will pay off financially, either. Do it because it's the right thing to do; you'll understand in a flash of recognition that that's the real pay off.

As the mom of a little girl, I find myself looking at women in the public eye as potential role models. I'm sure the time will come that my daughter will want to model her wardrobe and attitude after pop stars and actresses and I'm (mostly) okay with that. But as a feminist and political junkie, I want to make sure that she knows there are women who make American history, not just compete on American Idol. There's an old adage that women must be twice as good to be considered the equals of men.

Though the decreasingly private nature of the Internet might make this a thing of the past someday soon, for now, people are searching their most honest questions and concerns without fear of judgment.
