Snapchat Review

Like there’s already enough social media platforms to be on…I’ve been on Snapchat for the past month. The entire month of July. I wanted to give it a fair try and really immerse myself with the app. To be honest, I’m quite fond of it. It’s basically Twitter and Instagram LIVE, in real time. No pre-decided photos, no fancy fancy filters, just the raw moment that captures bits and pieces of your day. I’ve mentioned it a few times on my twitter, and maybe once or twice on Instagram, incase you missed anything…

For those of you who don’t know what Snapchat is, its a fun messaging application for sharing moments. You can take a photo or a video, add a caption or doodle, and send it to a friend or add it to your Story to share with some or all of your friends. Friends can view Snaps for up to 10 seconds, and then it disappears.


Here’s a snippet of one of my stories earlier this month. I went thrifting for new (or you could say ‘old’) clothes due to my shrinking size (Yay! 25lbs Down!). With these quick video clips, you can capture exactly what’s going on that very moment, no “carefully,” picked out photos taken from an SLR or photos a friend took of you last week. Right, then and there moments. You can also add a a filter (a few options), geotags or for me, I like adding in small text. You can get really creative and capture an entire sequence of things your currently doing, all throughout the day!

It’s a great way for socials to share their everyday lives with these tiny clips called Stories. It’s your Story. Especially if you’re a YouTube vlogger who posts daily, Snapchat is a great way for your followers to continually see the upcoming future footage of the vlog ahead!

Are you on Snapchat?! What are your thoughts and feelings on it? I must add, it was definitely something to get used to.. Search YouTube on How To Use SnapChat. LOL! (I did!)

Add me on SnapChat (tiffanymaca)! It may convince me to start vlogging.

In preparation of my 10Ks, I’ve been running just about every morning. I usually wake up between the 5:30-5:45 hour and begin my day in gear of a morning run. Weather it’s by myself around the neighborhood, or with my 4 year old preschooler in the jogging stroller. I’ve accepted to do whatever it takes to get in my run everyday. 3 miles (5K) is the minimum is my goal. But more miles is always encouraged.

It’s all painful. It’s cold. I hate it. But in the end, I’m happy I did it.

Morning Routine

Here’s a short clip of what my morning routine looks like from my Snapchat.

Follow me! @TiffanyMaca

I wouldn’t be able to wake up without my boyfriend Derrick. He works from remotely home, and his job is currently located in Florida. Being on East Coast time, makes him wake up, and relocate from out bedroom to his home office. Once he’s up, I’m up. And I’m so happy to have his work, kick-start me to get to work. #WorkIT
