PERSONAL | Instagram & life lately

I'm definitely becoming a bit of an Instagram addict lately. It's not that I haven't always been, it's just lately I've been using it more as a blogger/instagram user, as opposed to just using it to upload photos representing what's been going on in my life.


I've been paying more attention to angles, settings and backgrounds (which I've always enjoyed doing if I'm honest as I've always liked photography) and hashtags too, for sure. I do go over the top, I'm not going to deny it, but hey, it works.

Here's a little example of what my feed has looked like lately and what I've been up to.

Some bits and bobs I've already blogged about, like my beautiful new outfit from ASOS and the delicious food when I headed into London for the awesome Django Bango pop up.

But you'll also see on the top row a foggy morning which begged for a caption about zombies. Beneath that, you can see some delicious food from Five Guys, which I took the first time I'd been there. I'd been wanting to go for ages and finally had the chance to after our visit into the Crystal Dome. Beside that, you can see me sporting a messy top-knot but still looking (at least a little) better then the monster outfit beside me. This was taken at a press night for the new Goosebumps Alive show, and I'd attended the press night for work. We got a sneak preview of one of the scenes from the show and it's worth a visit.

Next, I took a photo of the lake during a visit to the canals with my best friend, back in that weekend when it was ever so hot. It was the first time I'd managed to really appreciate having a car on a hot day and it really was the best feeling zooming around the countryside with the windows down and my music loud.

Below, you can see what I believe is one of the cutest lunches EVER, courtesy of a recipe I found on The Debrief. And it was super yummy. And cheap.

Beside that is just a random photo I took in the toilets of TGI Fridays, and, next, some ever so cute shot classes my friend provided us with on Saturday night. It was my first time seeing all the H&M girls in so long (well not all the girls, but who I refer to as on a night out it would always be us five) and it was a lovely evening. Slightly messy, but lovely nonetheless.

Other then the above, all I've been doing lately is working and trying to save money for my upcoming holiday! I also finally bought my Reading ticket too...

Oh. and if you'd like to follow me on Instagram, you can do here!

  2. I'm an Insta addict too and decided it was better to have a separate one for my blog and personal life so I could go full on 'blogger' mode on Instagram. Love the look of those nibbles at the Django Bango pop up - I'll have to check this place out when I'm in London!

  9. I have really been trying to up my instagram game which is why I tend to post it through a scheduling app because I can use camera quality photos rather than my phone x
