1. How to take better Instagram Photos

Would you love to have better pictures in your Instagram feed?  It’s easy to improve your photos for Instagram and you can start by following these 5 simple steps.  

  1. Lighting is the key. Make sure your subject is near a window if inside, but not in direct light.  If you are outside, shoot in the shade to avoid harsh shadows.  Avoid shooting at night when possible, the low light availability causes blurriness in your images. 
  2. Don’t use the Instagram camera. Instead, take your pictures with your camera’s phone or even using the Camera+ app.  Both will create better images that have more clarity.  Then select them from your photo album once you are in Instagram.
  3. Use better editing apps. Instagram’s filters have been outdone by better apps including VSCO, Camera +, Photoshop Express, and many more.   If you want to up your photography game, then you need better filters and editing options.  READ MORE…

3. Valentine Surprise!


Would you like a fun way to add another element of depth and surprise to the Valentine cards that your children pass out to their friends and family members?  

  • Try adding a spritz of a quality essential oil to your cards before sealing in an envelope.  Add 5 – 10 drops of an essential oil to a small glass spray, shake well, and spray.
  • We love using OrangeLavender, and Stress Away on our personal Valentine cards!
