How I edit my Instagram pictures

Posted by: Leander @ 5:55 AM - Filed in: iPhoneography, YouTube - No Comments

Hello, everyone!

This evening I uploaded a video and I thought it’s worth posting on my blog. It’s a long ass video where I show you all the photo editing apps on my iPhone that I use to edit my pictures before I upload them to Instagram. Check it out!

The following apps that are mentioned in my video are:
– Afterlight
– VSCO Cam
– Phonto
– SKRWT
– Facetune
– Diptic
– Squaready

If you have any questions or app suggestions, feel free to mention it in the comments and I will try and check it out!

I hope you like my video. You can subscribe to my channel on YouTube (it’s free) for more videos and to keep yourself updated when I upload a new video/vlog.

Also, feel free to follow me on Instagram where you can see my daily life in pictures.

I hope you’re all enjoying your week! Ta-ta for now! :)

Sunday beach day

Posted by: Leander @ 12:35 AM - Filed in: Leander - No Comments

On Sunday I went to the beach with my parents and my auntie, who’s here on vacation from Suriname. I took some pictures and selfies!

It’s been a long time since I’ve been to the beach. Hearing the sound of the waves and the nice breeze in my face really clears my head. Something I should do more often, since the beach is not far away from where I live.

The wasn’t all that bad. It was pretty cloudy and there was a moment where I felt a little bit of raindrops. But that didn’t stop a few people from taking a dip in the cold north sea.

Anyway, here are a few pictures I snapped. I hope you like ‘em.

New pair of shades

Posted by: Leander @ 3:59 AM - Filed in: Fashion, Leander - No Comments

I got these new shades yesterday, when I went to do some grocery shopping with mom. We went to Primera, a tobacco/magazine store, and they had dozens of different sun glasses, each for €2,50!! I found one that I like, so did mom, and we each got a pair! What do you think of my cheap ass, yet fabulous, shades?

Wir Sind Alle Freaks

Posted by: Leander @ 11:53 PM - Filed in: Television - No Comments

October is getting close, which means that the fourth season of American Horror Story is getting near! Freak Show, baby! A couple days ago the official promotional poster for Freak Show was spread on the internet. And it looks twisted and not to mention, freaky!!

Great to see Angela Bassett and Kathy Bates again! But sad this will be Jessica Lange’s final season. I hope she reconsiders if there will be a fifth season.

There are also short teaser trailers to promote Freak Show. You can find them on YouTube. There are many fan made teasers, so you might wanna check out the official YouTube page for FX Networks.

Are you ready for Freak Show!? I am!

Hello, September

Posted by: Leander @ 11:40 PM - Filed in: Leander - No Comments

Holy guacamole, it’s already September! What the frickin’ frack! It’s madness, I’m telling you! August flew by like an old fart. So many ups and down in August, with quite a lot of setbacks that got thrown my way. Please, oh please, let September be mellow and less chaotic!

How are you all doing? I hope everyone is doing good. Nothing much is new with me. Just doing my thing and doing the things that I love. Watching movies and shows. I recently watched all six seasons of The L Word again! That was fun. I needed something to watch, because The Fosters and Pretty Little Liars is on summer break right now.

I’m looking forward to next month, for a new season of Once Upon A Time and American Horror Story. Excited about that! Did you all see the promo poster for American Horror Story: Freakshow? It looks twisted as fuck! I will post it as a separate post.

I haven’t vlogged in a while. I wanted to vlog today, but I kinda forgot. Hopefully tomorrow. I also wanna shoot some more tag videos. I have a creative mindset right now, but with all the drama and chaos from the past week, I haven’t been able to do anything.

Anyway, I just wanted to drop my first post for September. I hope everyone is having a great day! Here are two selfies for you. Yes, yes! Selfie slut and cam whore alert! LOL.

Oh, before I forget. I did an Instagram cleanse yesterday. Starting fresh again. If you’re on Instagram, follow me here! Okay, tootles!!

Happy Michael Jackson Day

Posted by: Leander @ 4:21 AM - Filed in: Music - No Comments

It’s the one and only King of Pop’s birthday today. If Michael Jackson was still alive he would have turned 56 today. Let’s remember and celebrate Michael Jackson and the musical genius that he is, who will always keep his spot on the throne, no matter what, forever and always. The legend, the icon, the king of pop! Happy MJ Day, everyone!

I will definitely blast some of MJ’s music today, to remember the man and his timeless music.

New Edition – Candy Girl

Posted by: Leander @ 12:24 PM - Filed in: Music - No Comments

Here’s another throwback music video! I totally spaced and forgot to post one last week. But I think this one will make up for it, hopefully. Just hearing the track immediately brings back the feel and memories of the early eighties!

Let’s go back to 1983 with Candy Girl, by R&B boy band New Edition.

Eating a baby cookie at age zero #throwback

Posted by: Leander @ 7:49 AM - Filed in: Leander - No Comments

Look at me! Back in the old days, sitting on the balcony, wearing a fancy fisherman’s hat and eating a Liga baby cookie/biscuit. And look at our dog Duffy! I miss Duffy! Fun throwback picture from the old days!

Should this be a thing? Posting old pictures as a throwback Thursday kinda thing? I know I’m horrible with keeping up posting throwback music videos every week. I don’t know. I might post an old pic every now and then, on a Thursday.

I’m Vectorized

Posted by: Leander @ 1:31 AM - Filed in: iPhoneography - 1 Comment

I was trying to be creative with this new app that I discovered called VectorSnap! You can basically import any picture and automatically vectorize it with just a few taps. With your vectorized image you can edit it further with other iPhoneography apps. You can make nice little artsy vector creations, without using expensive illustration software.

These two images was edited further with Phonto and Adobe Photoshop Touch. Fancy, fancy! I love it.

Mister Beret

Posted by: Leander @ 11:55 PM - Filed in: Leander - 1 Comment

It seems like fall is upon us here in Holland. I have been feeling a little bit under the weather today. Also had a major headache. I had to force myself to go outside to get some groceries. It was a good time to pull out my beret.

How do I look? Such a dork, right? LOL. Ayway, I hope everyone is having a great week. And feeling warm!
