October Sample Room Haul!

October just ended fulfilled weeks and family love! It’s just too personal but I can’t contain myself to be blessed and happy. I love of having time with my little boo! I am proud that she’s been so independent at a young age. She is always on top, her storytelling contest has been achieved, finally she calms now after so many times she said: “I can’t”. She can overcome to speak in front of many people. I wish she can have more achievements and she can be able to learn to dream on and just happy being herself. I love that my family are together even there’s no perfection, and am excited about my parent’s bday celebration. My upcoming trip to Malaysia and Brunei would be my first international trip and excited to blog about after checking off with few local destinations and achievement in my last year planner. Anyways, If I would like to be more productive, some drafts in my post are waiting for me! My mantra “work-life balance” should be more defined now. Hehe

To cut my few sentiments, here what I’ve got to Sampleroom for this month, my all-time favorite skincare, from Himalaya Herbals which claims “100% natural and safe products with rare herbs collected from the foothills of the Himalayas. Imagine that their first research was since 1930? And still providing health and personal care needs in over 90 countries, and the Philippines is included. So why not give it a try!

What I’ve got?

Himalaya Herbals Clear Complexion Whitening Face Wash- contains Saffron which promotes skin fairness, Licorice and white Dammer for antioxidant properties, Pomegranate and cucumber (which I love most) for nourishing and soothes skin.

It contains Apricot granules for dead skin and blackheads and stimulating fresh cell growth while Wheatgerm oil rich in Vitamin E is best known for nourishing for more radiant and supple skin.

OPPO F1s: #FeedGoals

Everyone entitled to use #SquadGoals, #Relationship Goals, now #FeedGoals. Above the three, I only have #forever in  #FeedGoals perhaps? Since Instagram feed is the new visiting profile and you want some good impression, we simply edited million times to have a cute feed and it can look as #FeedGoals. That’s not easy!

To be in the instagram world for more than five years, I may say, tips and guidance should be a big help to have a amazing feed ideas. Lets say (5) five? Can we?

1. Choose an Instagram Theme

Yes we may have this Instagram theme feed be it on: food, fashion, travel, etc. That doesn’t sound very fun though, does it? You shouldn’t have to limit yourself to only showcasing one part of your life in order to be successful on Instagram. Instead of choosing a theme for your Instagram, settle on a common aesthetic that weaves through all of your photos. Choosing an aesthetic gives you more freedom with your feed, because as long as your photo fits the “vibe” of your Instagram, you can post about pretty much anything!

FEED GOALS 1

For this feed, the best curates each picture is the fashion sense and light effect. You could choose a bright, golden, moody, dark, or colorful aesthetic for your Instagram feed. To choose your own, scroll through your existing feed and see what aesthetic your favourite photos have in common, which works for every aspect of her photography; from editorial shoots to wedding photography, and even her selfies and food photos.

2. Use Similar Filters to Keep your Instagram Feed Layout Consistent

May it be Crema, Ludwig or Reyes (which was I think help @vernenciso)  feed goals, curating Instagram should feed flow naturally, we have to be consistent in editing our photos but this doesn’t mean you have to choose one filter and one filter only, but limiting yourself to a few will help you stick to your chosen aesthetic. Apps like A Color Story are great for bright feeds, whereas VSCO Cam is great for moodier or golden feeds.

3. Don’t Let Your Instagram Feed Get Out of Order

Take a step back from posting one photo, and look at your Instagram feed as a whole: how do all of your photos fit together? The prettiest feeds have a good variety of subjects that are evenly spaced out. Below sample distributes a mix of selfies, nature, and pastel colors. You’ll notice that she doesn’t post two selfies or two drawings in a row, and she posts complementary tones, which really brings the feed together.

One of the hardest parts of making your Instagram feed look amazing is figuring out how to make all your individual photos look good beside each other. Some Instagrammers will post a photo, and if they don’t like how it fits with their feed, will either quickly delete it, or wait until the next day to delete it in order to keep their feed consistent. The best way to curate an Instagram feed is to preview it in grid format beforehand. This way, you can move your photos around to create the best vibe, or swap out different photos of the same subject to see what works best.

4. Good Instagram Feeds only Post Photos that Fit

In addition to editing photos to your chosen aesthetic, you also have to be selective when it comes to choosing which photos you are going to post. For example, a busy photo is going to seem out of place for a minimalist feed, no matter how you edit it. If all your photos are bright and full of sunshine, a dark evening photo just won’t work.

That being said, sometimes a really amazing moment happens and you want to share it with the world (aka Instagram). You might have a photo that you really want to post, but no matter how many times you edit it, it just doesn’t fit with your feed. In this case, you have two options: post it anyway, or muster all your self-control to not post it. If it’s your personal Instagram feed, a few concessions now and then are okay – it’s just Instagram! But if you’re using Instagram for your brand, one photo that doesn’t fit with your aesthetic is all it takes to lose followers forever. Don’t risk diluting your hard-earned Instagram brand for one photo, and instead choose to share that photo on Facebook or Twitter instead.

One last tip; if you have a photo you love that just doesn’t fit, try making it black and white to have it flow with your feed better.

5. Good Camera Phone Takes a #FeedGoals

After editing and so much planning to have a best Instagram feed, Lots of pupular “Instagrammers” using high technology and a good source to capture all the memories to be able to have a good feed goals. How about having a new phone that summarizes all?

OPPO

A good camera which gives you #FeedGoals, is that 13 MP Rear Camera will give you the most vivid, and very detailed shots of your current #nom. Even if you happen to bump into a delicious dish at night where most camera phones fail, OPPO F1s is equipped with a 1/3.06-inch sensor. It maximizes light sensitivity, giving your nighttime shots more than enough detail. And to show the world that food is not the only delicious offering we have, OPPO F1s’ 16 MP front camera captures the most perfect of selfies, making you more delicious than ever before. Partnered with a quad-core processor and 3 gig of RAM, OPPO F1s is the perfect partner in my pursuit of collecting best shots and Instagram #FeedGoals.
