Do you Instagram?


I just jumped on the iPhone bandwagon after years of owning a Blackberry. I really love it <3! Do you Instagram? Can you offer me any technical tips? What's your favorite filter and what kind of photos do you like seeing?
My user name is: merissa_cherie. I'm not sure how to link that here but if anyone knows how, please leave me a comment or email, pretty please.
While I'm still trying to figure things out, here's my first Instagram photo that I snapped with my phone today.
My first Instagram photo.



  1. Ooh what a gorgeous picture! I use instagram too, and absolutely love it! My username is mermaidens :3

  2. Thanks Kailey. Instagram is highly addicting :)

  3. I'm addicted to Instagram!
    My favourite filter is the Earlybird.. love the soft tone it gives to pictures.
    You should snap lots and lots of pictures trying all the different features, the best way to learn about Instagram!
    Oh, and check Stickygram, you can order magnets there with your Instagram pictures on! They're good quality!

  4. Mi Joya: Thanks so much for those recommendations. I love soft tones too. I will definitely check out Stickygram. Mahalo! (^•^)

  5. Hello Merissa!
    I'm sorry, I am one of those persons who never change phones, never had a BLACKBERRY, never had a complete device, I just have an old ordinary phone...

  6. Hello Kira :) I think that it's cool that you are still keeping it real (^•^) Love it! If it works, why change it? Plus to that is: no big cel phone bills.

  7. I have an instagram! You can link your instagram page as: :) My favorite filters are Rise & Valencia! I use those the most often!

  8. Hi Cindi, thanks for the tip! I will check out statigram :) Rise and Valencia are lovely filters. Cool! xo

    1. Hi Ema :) I'm so happy I finally did it. I will check for you on Instagram. Happy Easter!


So happy you paid me a visit. Mahalo!

Hi there! Photography and art featured on this blog, unless where noted, came from my camera and were made or styled by my hands. You may not use my photos for profit or on commercial websites, but we might be able to work something out with a dozen chocolate macarons, and a juicy deal. Do not remove my watermarks or copyright markings from my photos (please see previous sentence). I won't bite, well unless you infringe on my copyright. But really, send me an email, I'm pretty nice. The snail mail on my blog includes my mail or the work from other artists and pen friends. I do my best to give everyone credit. But, in the case where I have missed the proper credit please contact me to address it. If you would like to re-blog or pin any of my original works please be the awesome person that you are and give me a shout out a.k.a. proper credit, and link it back here. Speaking of links, I do on occasion link out to other sites, however I am not responsible for the content you find on those sites. Sometimes clicking on a link I’ve provided may be a link to a site that will give me a small commission if you buy something from them. Which means that I might get paid (hopefully not in gum) if you click on that link, whoo-hoo. Reason why I’m telling you is because I want to be honest with you and frankly, because it’s illegal not to. That said, I promise to use any affiliate commissions earned for good cause: like stationery hauls and lattes. Thank you kindly, Merissa
