VSCO Filters That Fashion Bloggers Use On Instagram 2.0

Hello, Instagram Endeavors!

So glad to be back to the weekend realizing today is the second day of September! Yet also, I wanted to celebrate the most hit article with over 11.000 reads on my blog which is VSCO Filters That Fashion Bloggers Use On Instagram. As celebration I finally created another secret VSCO Filters for your weekly reference in building your own aesthetic feed on Instagram. Let’s get started with the first fashion blogger.

Lydia has always been my favorite fashion blogger. All of her contents always look very sophisticated. Her feed has a lot of touch of pastels and pinks which brighten the picture she posts on Instagram. Based on my analysis, you may follow her editing skill using VSCO by using these patterns,

The funny thing is, I really adore this couple. Ali is Lydia’s fiance and they will be getting married shortly and they are such a good pair. Ali has quite orangish and bluish filter on his posts, similar to posts and videos by Mike Visual and Ryan Nangle. If you love the filters that Ali has, you may follow this VSCO patterns below,

Blackish filter that everyone loves and very suits for buildings in Europe which gives a little touch of vintage and medieval. I have always admired Cher’s style and her kinda dark filters give her posts look more sophisticated. If you are interested to have a dark yet look a little bright with pretty high contrast, you may follow this VSCO pattern below,

Sooo, that’s all I have for this weekend! Honestly I have been pretty occupied lately and it kinda got me a bit stressful but I definitely will always try to stick on my schedule to always post every weekend indeed. I am sorry that I had to postpone the August Beatitude 2017 until next weekend but I guarantee I got mesmerizing things that could inspire your weekend. Thank you so much for checking out this post, I hope you like it and it would be a great hit like the previous one. Have a great weekend! Xx

7 Caption Personalities You Should Try on Instagram

Never have you ever feel flustered or even anxious to think about the perfect caption for your Instagram picture? Or maybe you are confused to decide what kind of personality you have for a caption on Instagram?

Worry No More!

I have tons of ideas to inspire your creativity in writing captions on Instagram and I am pretty sure you will be head over heels in love with them. Well, hopefully. However! There is only one thing to bear in mind that captions on Instagram are better relatable to the picture you upload. I have seen a lot of people posting pictures (e.g: selfie with duck face) but their caption says something opposite (e.g: broken heart quotes) –which I find it irritating.

You are a beautiful creature with a beautiful mind, I have always wanted to see that everyone is aware with that. Why sharing hatred and sorrow if you are still able to share happiness. Here are seven personalities that may inspire your writing proficiency on Instagram pictures:

1. The Poet

Who says poems are only for melancholic people? Not at all. If you have tons of vocabularies in your head, recognize those words from Shakespeare, or even have 3 or more language proficiencies, then poems might be good for you since I believe you can play with words. Sometimes I like to write poetic captions but I do not want my Instagram audience to interpret me as a melancholic blogger, thus I make fun of the poem in the end.

2. The Joker

Don’t take pictures too serious. It might have philosophy or metaphor or anything but seriously, chill. You only need to see every inch of the picture you have whether there is something to be mocked at or not. If there is, make fun of it and let your friends’ comments rolling on the box.

I swear my eyes were opened👀

3. The Forecaster

Remember that basic conversation you mostly have with a stranger? Something that talks about how hot or rainy the day is. Well you can put that to your caption. Go outside, take a picture and tell your followers how perplexed you are with the weather and be the forecaster of your own state of mind.

I have no idea whether this picture represents summer or winter or autumn or spring.

4. The Story Teller

Seriously, we mostly do not do things on purpose but somehow it happens because it happens. If you ever have those kind of moments, you can write them as caption and engage your followers’ attention about how weird your day has been.

5. The Stargazer

Cassiopeia, Canopus, Alnilam, Castor, and every single star or constellation you have ever heard. If you are that kind of person who likes to gaze at the moonlight and the starry skies in the middle of the night, pick one constellation and tell them how you feel about it. Or if you have a crush on someone, you may correlate it a little with the touch of metaphor.

6. The Food Enthusiast

Food porns on Instagram, totally common! But that’s how it works. This is a phase where people let the foods chill because they are busy to take picture of it for 15 minutes. However, that’s the way it is. I usually give a caption about how tasty or bad the food is and/or even mock at my own hypocrisy.

7. The Reviewer

When you love something, you share. When you hate something, you share. Basically, you are either reviewing your own life or someone’s life. But in this case, I am going to show my reviewer attitude towards a cafe I visited. It depends on how informative you want yourself to be but please bear in mind that Social Media ethic does exist.

That’s all I can get for you, guys! I compiled those captions on my Instagram which I thought it could widen your inspiration to be more creative yet enticing to attract more engagement of your followers. Remember that what you write is what you are in people’s perspective from social media. Then spread the love instead of hatred and sorrow. Have a nice weekend, guys! 🙂

Summerbird (Bed and Brasserie): Was I Impressed?

Hello, Guys! Who likes to stroll around the city and look for new places? If you do, I have this one coming up for you!

Basically, this is the first post of “Odysseia” where I will start reviewing hidden gems in the cities or even countries I visit. Can I say yay to that for the very first post?

I was introduced by my friend to have a visit to this Bed and Brasserie located in Bandung, West Java, Indonesia. I was welcomed with vintagely cute interior. From that perspective, I might say that this place is better for youth.

The staffs are really nice and understanding which made me feel comfortable to stay longer for small talk with friends and photos indeed.


I ordered two coffees, a lattè and a cappuccino. I was expecting for some artsy foam on top but nope, just a cup of coffee. I didn’t order much since I was quite stuffed, I only ordered one mixed platter which has sausage, calamary, wedges, and onion rings in it. It tasted fine but a bit tasteless to me. More spices would be great.


SummerBird also has hotel in the upstairs with various rates. I didn’t stay but I loved to see the corridor with the vines which gave the homey look because they don’t have 20 rooms or above like hotels you always notice in general.

Processed with VSCO with lv01 preset
The tables for its cafe are not only downstairs but they are also available in upstairs along with the rooms. The vintage look of its cafe made me feel want to stay longer for another sip of coffee but unfortunately, the foods I ordered was fine but not outstanding.

To sum it up, here’s what I think about Summer Bird for my first impression.

Ambience (9 out of 10)
Food and Beverage (8 out of 10)
Service (9.5 out of 10)

Impression (8.8 out of 10)

Have you ever been here or interested enough to visit? Share what you think through the comment below. I will also do another reviews for Odysseia. I can’t wait to do it further! Thanks for reading ❤

Instagram Guide for Black & White Feed

Craving for Black and White feed on Instagram? You’re simply on the right page!

Since I have received tons of request for photo editing guide after “VSCO Filters that Fashions Bloggers Use on Instagram” has been the most hit blog-post for the last few months until now, I decided to create one instagram account for your instation (Instagram Inspiration)!

                                       

Black and white are people’s favorite monochrome colors. Until I once heard a phrase saying, “I will stop wearing black until I see darker color”.

That sounds legit.

Alright, without any pleonastic intros, I divided 3 simple steps to help you achieving the perfect instagram feed that you’ve been yearning for!

STEP 1 

Go outside, take pictures, collect moments and sift the best ones. The first photo editor I always (until it has become an obligation) use is Snapseed. For an example, I will edit a picture of coffee that I took a few weeks ago.

1 (1)

I usually adjust the brightness, contrast, ambience, highlights and shadows with this photo editor because it gives the best of the best resolution of the picture you want to edit. And that’s why I love to use this app so much!

STEP 2

When you’ve got your own perfect resolution, you better move to VSCOCAM. I am definitely sure that everyone is already familiar with this app.

2 (2)

For B&W feed, I prefer to use B5 filter because the color of black in this filter looks very dense. B5 is a free filter by VSCOCAM, thus you can download it anytime you want. Besides that, I usually adjust the strength of filter to +8 for maximum or +5 for minimum. And also, add a little touch of fade effect for approximately +3 or +2 if you want to lower the contrast.

STEP 3

One more step for photo editing. The last photo editor that I use is Afterlight. If you want to give a little touch of frame around your picture, you may add it for approximately +35.

3 (3)

For the shape of its frame is definitely up to you. You can use round, hexagonal, triangle or anything. I prefer square because I want to accentuate more the essence of the picture not the art of the picture itself.

STEP 4

People usually post quotes to express what they’re feeling at the moment, but to me, not really. I use quotes to intensify the aesthetic touch for my instagram feed. Thus, I usually keep several quotes on my phone before uploading it.

4 (4)

After the picture has been perfectly edited, now it’s time for you to adjust your instagram feed. I wanted to create a chess feed, and I finally found the pattern for this feed, :

with frame + no frame + with frame + no frame + quote + no frame + with frame + no frame + with frame

But however, you can imagine it by yourself for your own perfect feed. And this is how mine looks like,

Voila! Interested enough to do the following guides? If you are, you can get yourself updated with the latest instagram feed on @lefleurenoire because I will update more new filters with different aesthetics for your instation! 🙂
