SOMETHING EXCITING IS HAPPENING!!!



I have some very exciting news! Well exciting for me anyway!


Now, if you are following me on Instagram or on Twitter then you will probably know what the exciting thing is that is happening. If you don't, then you have probably guessed it's something to do with travelling or getting on a plane. Then you guess is nearly correct.

RINGING IN SPRING WITH JEWELLERY BOX






Can you believe that it is actually Easter Bank Holiday weekend already? 


I mean, it only feels like yesterday when it was Christmas and my car said -1.5 one Thursday in January all day and now we are in 'Spring'! Like that has flown by. Maybe that is because I have had a tone of deadlines and other exciting stuff going on.

WHY I SUCK AT INSTAGRAM!

Do you ever compare your Instagram to other peoples? Like, their feed is so perfect and yours is like naw, seriously not happening. 


I remember when I first got Instagram back in 2011 (which has since been deleted), and there wasn't a thing for themes and everything having to be perfect. The only reason I got Instagram was because of Justin Bieber and some of his strange filters he would stick on his photos. I followed fan accounts, and not slick blogger accounts, like I do today. I kinda liked it back in 2011. Yes I was posting fan photos, and not make up or an outfit post (which yes I still suck out, so mirror selfies it is for an outfit, like I don't have an Instagram husband or someone who is willing to take photos of my outfits when I can actually be bothered). 

I suck at Instagram. 

Yes, in the last few months I feel like I have kinda improved. I now know how to use tags (I think, but who knows), and good lighting and clearer photos get you more likes, and somehow I have gone from 930 followers at the beginning of the year to 1170. Yes, I know that number is still small compared to others, but after being suck on 930 for a good 3 years, I kid you not, it feels kinda good to have an increase in followers. 

I also suck at Instagram because my Insta has no theme. 

This whole theme thing though. I mean I have tried and failed. Like I had a good New York spell, a pretty holiday vibe last year, and I had some green and pink sort of theme running but yeah I get bored. Themes are so tight. Maybe I want to post a photo from a concert where it is black, and that doesn't go with some light white theme, because who cares if it doesn't go or doesn't look perfect all the time. I like to be different. 

In some peoples eyes, because I don't have a 'theme', I suck at Instagram. Well maybe that is try, but sometimes themes can be boring. 

I can't stand following accounts that have this flat lay of makeup on a white background since 2014. Like please stop, it's boring. I personally prefer accounts that are more interesting and captions that are actually interesting. Yes, I know I suck at that as well, but i'm trying to improve; I promise. 

Yes I probably do suck at Instagram, but at the end of the day I quite like how my Instagram looks. It may not be perfect, nor do I get hundreds of likes or thousands of followers, but I'm quite proud of how my Instagram looks at the moment, even if I do spend too long on it everyday, but who really cares. 

If you are however interested in my Instagram, you can find it here!

MARCH FAVOURITES 2017



Is it me, or has it actually felt like Spring lately? 

March has been a month were some of it has felt freezing, yet other days feel like Spring is finally upon us, but then I suppose that is March for you. 

For me, March has been a somewhat busy month. I finished university for the Easter Break, booked a holiday, booked flights for something special that if you follow me on Instagram you probably know about, and seemed to have worked most of the month.
