My March favourites are coming a little late this month, I was really poorly for well over a week and that threw off my whole life schedule – Who has time to be ill?! Anyway I still wanted to share a few of the things I enjoyed in March so here goes…
Over on Voltage Sport we are in the process of putting together our first clothing collection! It’s a really exciting time and myself and Keil had great fun doing a little photo shot in March. More photos will follow over on VS. We are currently doing a soft launch and have some of our items already on the website. As the weather was still quite chilly in March I loved wearing my Bolt Beanie. I am so pleased with the collection which also includes t-shirts and hats. I can’t wait to share more soon.
The TV Show
Last month I mentioned I had begun to watch The People vs O.J. Simpson. I have still really been enjoying the show. Although I know how it ends it’s fascinating to see all the details. I do remember watching the trial but it was a long time ago and the show also explores behind the scenes. I have seen some interviews with Marsha Clarke who said it’s fairly true to life with what happened away from the TV cameras in the courtroom. It’s interesting to re-live one of the most famous trials ever and see how racism, sexism and celebrity all played a part.
I really enjoyed watching Hail, Caesar! in March. I thought it was a great film made by the Coen brothers. It was really a homage to old Hollywood, had some great characters and I thoroughly enjoyed it! You can read my full review here.
The Social Platform
I have really been enjoying sharing photos on Instagram recently. I’ve always enjoyed instagram as a platform but I think as I have been trying to improve my photography it has really got my attention. I have also set myself a schedule so I have an idea of what topics I want to post about. This has been really helpful rather than sitting there trying to think of something to post! It also helps I have found an amazing app (see below) so my photos look better than ever. I know there was a big deal about Instagram’s algorithm changing which I was disappointed by but we have to go with the flow and you can still make instagram work well for you.
I have been a big lover of the blog A Beautiful Mess for sometime and I loved their photo editing app by the same name until eventually it stopped working on my phone. When I found out they were launching a new app, A Color Story, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it and downloaded it the same day. It is a great app with some fabulous filters, great tools and it seems to make all my photos look good! I also love getting inspiration from #acolorstory on Instagram. I bought the in-app purchases so have the full range of filters but the 2 free ones are great and a good place to start. It’s an app I’d highly recommend!
