What I Found #18

Well it's almost Summertime and there are a ton of new things on online shops that I just want to spend all my money on. Of course I won't do that as I already have too many clothes. I should actually do a clearing out soon so I can get new stuff lol. I'm still loving the floral prints this year but I've also grown to like tartan/plaid etc. (even though I don't own many pieces I still love seeing them around). The one thing that I would love is a new blush and the Too Faced one is just a dream. I hope I can find one around here somewhere. Anyways, have a lovely weekend!

Movies, Movies, Movies!

I might start adding up to these lists as I go on with these kinds of posts. Usually I talk about 4 movies but I'm not going to limit myself anymore. As long as a movie I watch has review value than I'll put it up here.

Captain Phillips: This was the latest movie I watched even though it came out a while ago. It's a psychological thriller based on a true story. I was actually skeptical about it but I decided to watch it after my friends recommended it for me. They told me I had to watch it because it was one of Tom Hanks' best. I will have to agree with them on this. This movie was amazing on so many levels from start to finish. I literally felt every feeling in this movie. I was teriffied, excited, confused, sad etc. It definitely got through to me. Acting is top notch and the plot.. well it is based on a true story so it was amazing and very well written. If you haven't watched it, watch it asap.

Jeune & Jolie: This is a coming of age / sexual awakening movie but of course with a twist. I still don't get why the main character had a secret life of prostitution. Was it her interest in the act or some sort of escape from her life that seemed to be troubling her.. I still don't know. Maybe I missed the point. Other than the fact that there were some missing points (at least for me) I still love the cinematography, acting and music throughout the film.

Barefoot: I chose to watch this movie to pass time really but it turned out to be so sweet. It's actually a remake from a German version but I haven't checked that one out yet. I'm not sure if I could feel the chemistry between the actors but I absolutely loved the way Evan Rachel Wood acted, she really brought life to the character and gave me something to remember the film by. Watch this one if you're feeling romantic!

Spectacular Now: This was a good pass time movie. The main characters were interesting and the actors were portraying them interestingly as well. I had mixed feelings about the acting and the story actually but I always loved teen romance movies or something of that sort so it was nice. The movie also had its moments but I guess I don't really feel it as a whole. Something just didn't click.

Endless Love: Another teenage love story. This one was not good though, I couldn't take it seriously. I mean it had the feeling of "The Notebook" but the script and acting of this was far worse. It's basically the same concept so if you're into these kinds of movies (I know I am) than you can give this one a try. (This one might be a remake also).

Veronica Mars Movie: YAY! I have been waiting for this movie since I watched Veronica Mars last year! I'm so glad people funded this movie. The actors, script, music, basically everything was amazing. It's clear that everyone knew what they were doing when making this film because they tried to give something to everyone that would make them happy and I'm pretty sure they succeeded. And I'm just so glad we got the closure.

What's On My iPad? Part 1: Photo Editing Apps

Hello everyone! It's mid-term week and I am struggling to keep up with the blogging world while doing all these translation coursework and studying for exams but I haven't given up. Here I go:

Afterlight: I actually just purchased this and I can say that it was worth every penny. It has so many filters and effects that turn your photos into something incredible. I'm so excited to use the app more often. Price $0.99.
Vscocam: I have been using this for a while now and it still is my favorite even though I have been trying out Afterlight lately. I probably won't stop using Vsco ever because it's an amazing app that is free to download (which is suprising since it's so good).
InstaCollage: Everyone loves collages. Free.
Dubble: This app lets you do double exposures with other peoples photos. I've got some good ones on there but I wish people would put better photos instead of a photo of toilet paper. Free.
Instasize: To use your photos anyway you want. Wide, square etc. Free.
PS Express: Not really like the photoshop on our computers so this one is a bit dissapointing. It's just another app that edits your photos. Try it out if you'd like to. Free.
PixlrExpress+: I used Pixlr-o-matic online for a long time and I loved all of their vintage filters and effects and I was so thrilled to see this app. It has so many different things that other apps don't have. I recommend this one. Free.
Wallpaper Fix: Sometimes I'd like to see my favorite actor on the wallpaper but I can never find a photo that would be a perfect fit. And when it's not a perfect fit iPad's expand them and they get blurrly and it's not nice. So I use this app to alter the image and make it a perfect fit to use as a wallpaper. Free.
