A Day in my Life with the Beautiful Mess App

Elsie and Emma from A Beautiful Mess released a brand new app this week and I love it!  It's only available for apple products (not androids) so I bought it for my iPad mini.  It cost a whopping $0.99 and it's packed with doodles, phrases, and borders to enhance your photos.

I wasn't blown away by the photo filter options, as there are only 3 color filters, but that's not much of a hinderance because it's possible to export your photos directly from the Beautiful Mess app into Instagram where there are tons of filters to choose from.

Here's what a day in my life looks like through the eyes of the Beautiful Mess App:

I spent the morning at the ice arena where I did some skating and coffee drinking.

Then I came home and made the easiest lunch ever: baked grilled cheese and mashed potato smiles.  I love making my grilled cheese this way because I don't have to wash as many dishes.

After lunch I pretended to pack for a while because I'm leaving for my next contract soon, but I really just ended up knitting on the couch.

I spent the rest of the afternoon watching the boys replace a giant window.  Doesn't Justin look right at home on top of my dad's truck?

Life is so great when I'm at home between contracts.  I don't think I want to leave yet!

Have you tried the Beautiful Mess app?  Did you like it too?


  1. I'm surprised they don't have more color filters. I guess, like you said, Instagram has that covered. I love all the handwritten text. It adds a fun element to photos.

    So nice for you to be able to take it easy while you're between contracts. I wonder where your next skating contract will take you...??! :)

    1. I'm heading off to Ohio for the summer. =)

  2. Oh my gosh, everyone has this app now! I don't know how they all heard about it aside from word of mouth. I might just have to get it. They have such cute phrases and elements to add to pictures. Very cute!

  3. I haven't messed with this app but everyone seems to like it, I like the girls style @ ABM

  4. I noticed a few photos on my instagram feed with these captions and I was like "Who is this app by????".

    Will have to download it now!



  5. Cute app! Almost as cute as those mashed potato smiles!!! :)

  6. I love the ABM app and how you used it! These photos are adorable! I just found your blog and it's so sweet, I'll definitely be following along :)

  7. I love how the app makes any picture I see adorable! And whatever you're knitting looks cute :)
