Over the Moon About This Book, This App & a Bit of Color

Inspiration, Featured

 

I’m over the moon about these goodies from my business and personal worlds…

To start with, these light-hearted books by author Alexandra Stoddard.

 

Inspiring books to help you live your life to the fullest

I love books, I often run public relations campaigns for authors around the country. I go to author readings everywhere and just bought an iPad-mini so I can read my Kindle books on the train. I usually focus on marketing books and now, books on Africa in preparation for my trip. But hearing and meeting Alexandra was an inspirational treat. You may know her as an author of over twenty-five books. Living a Beautiful Life, a book about inspiring her readers to live each day to the fullest. Books about creating parties with my clients. Books about mothers and daughters.  Easy-to-read books. I find it nice to mix up the types of books I digest…some for business, some for fun. You might, too.

This smartphone app for your photographs: Percolator

Percolator. Before and after.

Every so often I have to find and fiddle with new iPhone photo apps. You might enjoy experimenting with digital photography as well. For my PR work I find myself using the usual filters on Instagram, to lighten and crop. But for some of your personal images … why not try fun apps like Percolator.  See the photograph above for my before and after comparison. The pink flower below, also edited with Percolator app, is one of my favorites. Android users can go here.

Don’t forget to try Waterlogue, too

Remember this app from a previous blog post?
