What’s On My IPhone 6 | Updated

Hey lovely pals😽 

Today I’m going to be sharing with you everything on my phone!! I did one a while back, but lots has changed, so I thought an updated blog post was in order. Check out my original post here: https://thecutelittlebeautyblog.wordpress.com/2014/11/10/whats-on-my-iphone-6-how-i-edit-my-photos-more/

Let’s begin! 

My homescreen is a snazzy picture of a sunset from last week😻😻😻 

  
I only have one page of apps, and here’s the general overview of it! The background is a pretty shot I took of some lilacs a few days back🌸🌸🌸

  
Starting on the first row, I have messages, calendar, my “photography” folder, and followers. My second row has IBooks, settings, a folder labelled “👾”, and calculator. My third row has FaceTime, Contacts, Clue, and my “tunes” folder. The fourth row contains Yahoo Weather, Steps, and Netflix. The very final row of apps on my phone has mail, phone, safari and my “social🙋🏽” folder. 

Now let’s dive into some details! 

  
These are all my photography apps📷 I have your typical photos and camera apps. Then, I have PhotoGrid. I use PhotoGrid for collages, borders, and to flip my photos. Next, I have VSCOcam to edit my photos. Finally, I have Facetune. It’s not worth the 4.50$ or whatever the price is, but it does work well to colour in backgrounds that aren’t a solid colour, or blur stray hairs! My next post will be a “How I Edit My Instagram Photos”, so stay tuned! 
   
 

This folder is basically my junk folder, and it contains all the apps that you wish you could delete😝 Although I do have one downloaded app in it, the “MyRogers” app to keep track of my data usage. Basically the lamest folder. 

  
I’ve recently been getting more into music, so I have my music app, and spotify. Spotify is basically a legal music service, and it’s free! And for 12$ a month you can upgrade to the premium spotify, which I totally recommend. 12$ per month for unlimited amounts of songs is such a great deal! I’ve been listening to the Red Hot Chili Peppers & Arctic Monkeys a lot recently. Stay tuned for a “Music Favourites” post!! 

  
This folder has to be my favourite! It contains all my social medias. Including: Messenger, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, Buzzfeed, Facebook, Tumblr, WordPress, and BBM. 

Hope you enjoyed!!! 

Xoxoxox, Ali💘😼

November Favourites // 2014

Hey lil cuties💖

IMG_3438.JPG

Coming a lil late, but here’s my November Fav’s😋 Its such a rainy and gloomy day so it’s perfect blogging weather!!

Makeup Favourites💁💅

IMG_3435.JPG

Beauty wise I haven’t ventured out to purchase any new items, but I have some hard core staples I’ve used almost everyday in November!

Tokidoki ‘Carnivora’ Eyeshadow: This is an oldie, but a Goldie! It has to be my all-time favourite eyelid shade, a beautiful frost champagne with pink undertones. Though it’s not on the market anymore, if there’s anyway you can get your hands on it I highly suggest it!

Eyeko Black Magic Mascara- I received this in my November TopBox (December TopBox post coming soon!!) and ever since I’ve used it I’ve fallen in love💕 I pair it with another mascara (up next) and my lashes look fab!!

L’oreal Voluminous Millions Excess Mascara- Love this mascara as well😍😍 it’s such a nice formula, brush, overall awesome! Paired with the mascara above it gives the perfect length & volume👌

Benefit Ooh La Lift- I received this sample in my Benefit Advent Calendar last Christmas🎅🎄 It’s basically a subtle under-eye brightened, and it works superbly! I find it gives just the right about of brightness without looking too unnatural or sparkly. (Lil note, it’s not meant to cover up dark circles, just brighten)

Almay Liquid Lip Balm- I’ve been digging out all the good treasures this month! I’ve had this lip balm/ lip gloss for quite some time, but nonetheless still love it💞 It’s a lovely pink shade that matches my lips but is just a bit pinker, and it’s blue undertone helps to make your teeth appear whiter! It’s also very non sticky which is a plus🙆

Skincare/Haircare Favourites💆

IMG_3434.JPG
(Shoutout to my succulent for making this pic 100x better)

Redken Hair Cleansing Shampoo- This shampoo is perfect to use on your scalp every few days to diminish oil and shininess that gets on your scalp! It also smells really nice (like tangerines)🍊🍊

Formula 10.0.6 So Totally Clean Daily Facial Cleanser/ Acne Treatment- The name might me misleading, but this 6$ badboy is a toner! It’s light orange in colour, and using a cotton round I apply it twice a day (morning & evening) to the areas with acne/bumps and it helps to get rid of them!

Nivea Roll On Deodorant- No one likes being stinky, so I gotta have a trusty deodorant! This one smells like heaven, works to take away smelly odours, doesn’t stain clothes, and it more convenient because it’s roll on! Overall 10/10 recommendation

Lifestyle Favourites (Memes, Fashion, Etc)

Music wise, I just did a post (the post previous to this one) of my recent favs, so everyone go check that out!

One of my current lifestyle favourites is the new Starbucks that opened up in my city!! I’m super pumped, and it has a drive thru which is a maaaaaaaajor plus!!!

IMG_2857.JPG

I’ve also really been enjoying taking photos with my new phone (What’s on my IPhone 6 post is a few posts down!) and with photo taking, comes editing apps! Recently I’ve been enjoying VSCO Cam, Afterlight, & Rookie to edit my photos. My current favourite filters are relic, hollow, leila (afterlight), TI, F2, C1 (VSCO Cam), baby skin, & gleam (Rookie)

IMG_3353.JPG

Another oldie but goldie is my favourite tie dye shirt (found at a local thrift shop by my cottage) that I got a few years ago! And recently I’ve just been wearing the heck out of it😜😜

IMG_3277.JPG

Lastly, I’ve been having fun finding hilarious and weird memes from the Internet (mostly tumblr) so I thought I’d share with you all some of my favourites😄😄

Hope everyone enjoyed, and tell me if we shared any favourites, or what your November favs were💜💜💜💜

Stay awesome lovelies,
Ali💓💓

Pretty Skies – My Photography | Part 1

Hey there lovely people of the Internet🙆🙆🙆

I thought since I take so many pictures of the sky, I’d start a series dedicated to the numerous pictures of the sky I’ve taken😋🌅

IMG_0099.JPG

This picture was the very first pic of the sky I took on my new phone! (See my “What’s on my IPhone 6″ post a few posts down!!) the sky looked like cotton candy and I couldn’t resist snapping a pic☺️

IMG_0108.JPG

This picture was taken about five minutes after the previous one, but it was the sky in the other direction!! So it was looking snazzy all over the place😝

IMG_1178.JPG

Me and my mom are obsessed with the sky, so we drove to the perfect spot to capture this pretty pink sky💁💁 A little pink never hurt anyone🎀💞

IMG_1445.JPG

This last picture was taken on my trip to school (the time provided by the lovely snapchat filter) and I thought the sky looked too cute😍😍

Hope you enjoyed my many sky pics, come back soon for more lovelies😘

I’m obsessed with so many of his songs including Back to Earth, Delirious, Get Me Outta Here, Rage the Night Away, and Turbulence. My other newly discovered artist is Flying Lotus and I adore the song Never Catch Me. My final lil shoutout goes to Style by Taylor Swift which is one of my favourite song of the moment😬👑

Here’s a more detailed “playlist” of my current favourite songs:

•Delirious, Get Me Outta Here, Rage The Night Away, Back to Earth – Steve Aoki
•IV. Sweatpants, Heartbeat, 3005 – Childish Gambino
•Tumblr Girls – G Eazy
•Knee Socks, Fluorescent Adolescent, Snap Out Of It, Fireside, Do I Wanna Know – Arctic Monkey
