MMM: A REALLY Beautiful Mess, new app alert

Instagram is brilliant isn’t it? I mean really brilliant.

This week I spent hours visiting all the high street Press Days to see what we will all be buying for AW13. And because it is positively encouraged at these events, I took lots of pictures and Tweeted and Instagrammed and Pinterested the social media heck out of it all. Hashtag exhausting.

I love Pic Stitch, an app that lets you create image collages for your phone (which you can then Instagram and Tweet, obvs). Perfect for press days when you take lots of accessory shots, but also brill if you want to pull together a particularly gorgeous set of pics of the kids.

But then – are you sitting down? – my lovely colleague told me about a brand new app which allows you create really lovely, whimsical images with your photos, Instagrams and Tweets.

A Beautiful Mess – created by Elsie Larsen and Emma Chapman, the clever ladies behind one of my favourite blogs of the same name – have come up with the cutest idea.

Their brand new app allows you to upload images, add border options that you can recolour, add words in your choice of font – or upload some of the cute handwritten doodles or phrases.

I can’t explain it very well, so have a look:

It only launched last Monday through iTunes and is already number one on the app chart.

It costs 69p and honestly, I am obsessed. You can upgrade to get loads more features on there, but to be honest you won’t need them.

Follow me on Instagram and we can all bore each other with our creative doodling.

Alison and me. Obsessed.

    It’s so cool to see so many people loving Elsie. I’m originally from Springfield, Missouri where Elsie lives, but now live in London. . I grew up with her husband, Jeremy. She is definitely an inspiration.
