5 tips - How to be Fashion ready on Instagram?

Instagram – New revolutionary micro-blogging platform where all folks of life able to post photos happening around them, for examples young fashionista are able to showcase their inner fashion goddess to the whole world.

#ootd aka outfit of the day. Great source of inspiration and many try to replica the feeling but let’s be honest; 1000 picture only probably 1 taken looks fairly decent and probably cannot get you 100 likes immediately.

But there are tips and tricks for you here to be fashion ready and get at least 50 likes.

Tips #1 - Getting a good camera or SD memory card with WIFI capabilities

Yes, Let’s be honest that although phone are great in taking picture and save the hassle carrying many gadget. No quality can beat camera shot.

Gadgets are name for what they are named, so invest a good point and shoot semi-pro camera that has timer or wireless remote control would reap you good shots and memory.

Any perfect shot you took is able to transfer to your phone and Voila!
Great quality that beat any phone camera anytime!

Tips #2 - Patience, Patience and Patience.

Getting a good camera is one thing but if YOU are ready for the shot?

There are many crazy awkward moment that you might find it embarrassing because you are not use to it and probably wanting to try out new pose but sometimes it does not come naturally.

So do not be afraid and rush into getting the perfect shot. Do repeative poses if you must and you would get it – trust me!

If you happen to have a friend whom is not into taking photos, Please give them courage and patience or sample images so they know what to look out for when taking the shots. – Double trust me on that!

Tips #3 - Comfortably Confident!

Following from #2 – Poses does not come naturally because we are not model that are ready to pose anytime anywhere.

We are normal human being, putting on makeup; looking all so fine for the perfect shoot but there is some awkwardness peaking through. 


The key is to be confident and be comfortable in your own world. Tell yourself that you are doing it fine and keep giving the vibe to the camera and nail it!

Tips #4 - Filters & Hashtag are free!

Making use of filter to help portray the emotion that you would like to show case, It gives depth and meaning to the photos that you want to show.

Black & White to vintage looking.

Try it out and make it your style. Be unique can attract unique followers who appreciate your work. If they love your work – they will LIKE your photos.

My favorite filters are Rise and Valencia!

Apart from adding filters, listing possible hashtag subject to your photo tend to get attention from other instagram followers who are finding the same similar content inspiration.

Tips #5 - Do your homework!

Where to get inspiration, where to get this outfit, Where to get this and that! There are so many things to do, so do your homework.

Check out Zalora’s blog for the latest trend happening.

Apart from that resource from where to get that specific items can be limited and to be honest, Fancy items tend to be costly.

You do not need to get exactly the same stuff, similar would do and that’s what inspiration means and not copy + paste.

(Get statement jewellery during sale would usually cost 50% or lesser than usual yet still looking time-less)

Here is a look that I wore it recently – Very casual and lay back. This pose was taken after a couple of warm up shots, and suddenly I got struck by a certain feeling and pose for it. VIOLA! The shot which I think work with my inspired style.

And this shot I took for competition in Digital Fashion Week.

Both setting took quite some time to prepare and knowing the basic knowledge of making things come together, once you know how well it pairs – You have found the basic platform for you to venture. 

Hope this post is helpful to you and have fun with instagram, it is a great platform for me to really be creative and be daring to showcase what I can be :)

Quickie update + My deepest fear unfold with The Spa-Lon!

Quickie update on what is going on with my life??

Currently my second part of Interior design course starts and let me just tell you, it is hectic as ever if you trying to include workload and friends meet up. I do not have time on my own except every morning.. I will fill you all in later on why only morning i have my own time!

Plus its a pain in a *** to blog with a laptop that does not cooperates with you, battery is dead so i can not bring out to those cool cafe and work. Even if so i am holding an old windows so battery life span only lasted for 2.5 hours. Hur Hur.. Next, the program use to edit my RAW photos is soooo freaking slow.. and one fine day it suddenly stops working, not sure why? Until recently it started to work again.. hmm 

Personal life is not that good, all i can say things has been tough but we will pull through as a family :)

so with all said blogging would be the last thing i ever want to do.. like seriously it is like taking a step forward filled with time and motivation to edit and blog and this kind of things happen~

Hence, i appreciate the invention of micro-blogging via instagram @missjology! My most favourite app/place in the whole wide world.. (Once, it stop server for couple of hours and i felt so detached from the social world.. that's how important it is!) and I know i should get a MAC BOOK PRO SOON~! but the new updated software information is so tempting that halts me from getting it too soon. So please bear with me alright!

I learning to schedule post so that i would not left you all from hanging and keep checking out how dusty my domain is, so to all my supporter. I love you all for being understanding and patience.

Cut to the chase on why i only have the morning hours to myself!

So if you meet me in person~ you will notice something odd about me. 

Yes, if you know.. i have THAT problem. H-A-I-R L-O-S-S!

I dont like that word at all and trust me any girl at my age do NOT like that at all, who does not like long thick hair?

Reality just sets in when i look back at my photos, that i have to admit that i have this problem/ hurdle that i have to face. 

I admit that i have been through 1 week of mild depression and sadness earlier this year when the photo was shown during an event. And only my one BFFFFF knew about it and she comfort me throughout the days so thank you my sister of another mother. :D

Slowly, i am not embarrassed about it because i have too much stuff to do that it does not bothers me and plus have grown to learn to live with it for the past 10 years so why should i let a couple of photos thrown me down?

i have more happy photos alright? and i still surviving!

Yeap.. just have to admit it don't you!

Many of those new friends i have made told me that they did not realize it until a couple more times when we hung out. 

There is a few groups of friends that i have learnt to know during the past couple of months. 
  1. They knew you have this problem they will speak to you in private and would share and help you and give positive feedback (Dont you just love them?? yes i do and you know who you are!)
  2. Couple of them say they share the same problem as well so they make me less awkward ( arent they sweet?)
  3. Some ignore and continue to make friends with me but never talk about it ever~
  4. Keep in silent and probably walk away (YES THEY WALK AWAY BECAUSE THEY THINK I AM THE ODD BALL! sadly, there is and i do not blame them because who does not wanna hang out with the pretty one? haha!)
So if you met me in person before which one do i categorize you in?

I am joking.. 

Seriously i do not categorize my friends and heck i do not even categorize blogger-friends vs friends. I treat all of you as friends!!

Just like there many sort of sweets..but you just called it candies!

So like i said a friend told me that she want to help me and even ask me if i am willing to try the treatment out at The Spa-Lon. I was surprise because i felt that this year was going to be special and i knew it was something to do with my problem~

True enough my daily manifesting for something positive to solve my problem is here!

So we meet a few more times to understand more about it and I went for the treatment along with my parents so that they knew what was going on! I am so thankful for the understanding parent that i had, especially my dad who knew its going to be something that going to change my life.

So far the i have been going there religiously for the past 3 weeks!

So beware of some post of cafe yummo-licious!!

Every Day Every Morning, I devoted the time to myself just laying there and just thinking that its going to worth so much!

Never once i complain that i was tired or dislike about the treatment! All i can say i am grateful! To the people who serve me during the treatment, although i think they are bored seeing me everyday at 10am! hahaha!

This is the ATP-38 machine which shine at the area that is needed to be treated; infra-red light energy to help stimulate cells to be more active. 
(FYI: infrared technology treatment is highly recommend by skin care specialist to treat hair-loss patient)

Especially Auntie Irene who gave me alot of support and encouragement to keep thinking that its going to work out fine. Nicole she is so bubbly that everyday just bring sunshine to my morning!

Thank you The SPA-LON for the service and the faith that you provide for me.

Forever am grateful for the opportunity and will continue to be positive about my outcome!

I will create a tab at my blog so that it will be easy for you to follow and track my progress and to understand more about the ATP-38 treatment! I cannot wait to share you what i have wrote in my daily hair journal weekly!
