A trip down memory lane with Printic App.

MOLU_BLOG_PRINTIC-02So. I have been thinking of ways to document our Big American Road trip as a kind of keepsake piece – something physical we can have on our coffee table for a more ‘tactile’ trip down memory lane as oppose to flicking through hundreds and hundreds of images on our computers. There’s no doubt, I’ll still do that but nothing beats the physical thing. Anyway, I knew we’d opt for a traditional, old school style where we’d print all our photographs and affix them to the pages of nice album, using those photocorners which we used on our Indian honeymoon album (we got these from Paperchase the last time). On this trip, however, we took a lot of photographs through Instagram so it meant we had quite a few square-shaped photos we wanted to include. That’s when I stumbled across a ‘Photo Box’ offer with Printic; an App you can download that allows you to pick all your photos and order straight off your phone! You can sync your Instagram, Facebook, and even your Dropbox accounts to be able to choose what photos you’d like to print. It’s so ridiculously straightforward and convenient, which is why I decided to give it a go. Besides, I’ve always been a huge Polaroid fan which I felt was the perfect style for our Instagram photos. Sadly, the Photo Box only allows for 50 prints which meant I had a mammoth of a task of being super selective from the thousands of photos I took…but that’s probably not a bad thing seeing as this was the first time trying this new app……..AND hey, it comes in a FAB looking presentation box! :) MOLU_BLOG_PRINTIC-09MOLU_BLOG_PRINTIC-10
I must say I was pretty darn pleased with the outcome. The quality is brilliant and it’s exactly what I had hoped for…… y’all have NO idea how excited I am about getting this album started now!! I may order a few more now that I’m delighted with the results using the unlimited prints option instead of the fixed 50 prints. Seriously folks, it’s such a great app! It’s reasonable, convenient, super easy to use, fast, reliable, and they do FREE worldwide shipping! What’s not to like!! It’s probably the best app I’ve come across this year and I personally think they also make AMAZING gift ideas especially when they come in such lovely boxes! A perfect way to make someone happy….I know I would!! :) They do other formats too like calendars, posters, magnets, and photobooks which I’m definitely keen on trying someday….if any of you decide to go for that or have already done so, please let me know what you think of it.

Travel snapshot: our Big American Road Trip

It never ceases to amaze me how quickly days, months and years go by… all in the blink of an eye.

So here begins a new month…and after five weeks on the road travelling across the US, August, for me, will be all about settling in, playing catch up, figuring things out and getting myself officially set up for a new start as a freelance designer. The thought of it does give me that unsettling feeling in my stomach but there are butterflies too which is good! ;)

Anyway, I thought I’d give you a teeny snap-shot  of our Big American Adventure, which believe you me, was hard to select from the THOUSANDS of photos we took between us (I’m really not kidding!)  Some of you may have seen these on across Facebook, IG, etc but it should give you a little taste of all the fun we had…..and yes, we did eat A LOT!! :)

Ahh July…..you were so much fun. Undeniably the best month (5-weeks) we’ve had since our honeymoon trip and I CANNOT stop looking back through all the photos and thinking of all the happy times. Here’s to many many more incredible months, years and adventures!!

Have a wonderful and fun-fuelled month of August folks!! xx

[Weekly round up] My Week in Pictures

Afternooooon lovelies! I trust you all had a fantastic and well-deserved Bank Holiday break as much as I did!  Well, I still had plenty of work to do (no rest for the wicked!) nevertheless it was relaxed and stress-free as oppose to the usually manic ones!  Why we can’t have a 3-day weekend in place all year round is still a wonder as not only do you feel you can get things done but feel like you’ve actually have a weekend! Anyway, here’s a round-up of my work/fun-fuelled week and weekend – the highlight being the Notting Hill Carnival we went with friends yesterday.19-26AUG-WEB
