Instagram - Fast, beautiful photo sharing
Are you one of the many Instagram Lovers?  I am!  Simply because Instagram has enabled non-pro-photographers and non-graphic designers into instant pros in photo filtering.  Thanks to Instagram, photo lovers like myself, now has the chance to turn simple photos into vibrantly enhanced or retro-looking shots in mobile platform.

Choose one of any of the 17 photo filters below and you're on your way to pro-looking pictures which you could share via your other social networking accounts (Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Flickr and Foursquare) for your friends to appreciate: Amaro, Rise, Hudson, Sierra, X-Pro, Lo-Fi, Earlybird, Sutro, Toaster, Brannan, Inkwell, Walden, , Hefe, Valencia, Nashville, 1977 and Kelvin.  Other Instagram edit buttons are: photo brighter, blur and rotate.

Instagram Hash Tags - #OOTD
Popular hashtags I use in Instagram are: #Instagramers, #IgersManila, #igers, #Instafood, #Foodgramer, #foodnography, #InstaFashion, #Instafash, #OOTD (outfit of the day), #Kids, and #events.  One of my favorite hash tags is: #OOTD.  It's so because I could share a semi-fashionable side of me by capturing my simple and moody outfits of the day.  It's one way of saying and advocating that even when we're mothers, we should not let go of ourselves.  We should still dress-up and prettify ourselves.

Here are some of my #OOTD photos on Instagram:

80's Colorful Get-Up for a Gig via @MomPracticality on Instagram
PhotoGrid: Instagram-compatible Collage Maker
You cannot do a collage, like the photos above, on Instagram alone.  You need other Instagram-compatible photo editors that help you stitch multiple snapshots together to create one story.  There are a number of other applications which are available on Google Play for free, but I just use PhotoGrid because it's free, simple to use, multiple collage options and uploads to Instagram plus other of your social media platforms.

FOLLOW @MomPracticality on Instagram
Good news!  You could track your Instagram photo feed, comments, followers, followings and statistics via web using either Statigram or Followgram.  Are you on Instagram? Please comment with your Instagram handle so we could follow each other.  Let's connect!
