Insta – catch up.

What better a way to catch up than over Instagram?

I have a deep, love-hate relationship with Instagram. When I first caught the insta-bug I loved how real the photos were, I loved following my favourite bloggers even if it was just what they bought from target, or a good old fashioned fitting room outfit post, those are the posts I think we all love.

The downside however, is once one person has a picture-perfect Instagram its kind of hard to swim against the tide. My own is sketchy at best but its also greatly helpful for us catching up again after so long!

Lined up once this site is all polished are plenty of travel posts (I may have finally mastered hot weather packing – from trips to Italy & Malta). Along with that, this summer we’ve been experimenting with our garden – from being black fingered to green there are plenty of vegetables that we have somehow grown!

If anything, the last few months have been about living primarily. Without a constant stream of blog content to write I’ve been able to spend more time reflecting and taking the time to actually live in my outfits rather than just recording them!

Its made me think long and hard about content beyond a stereotype flat-lay and about the brands behind the lifestyles we want (brand spotlights) to how clothing has the potential to change how we feel, or create an identity for ourselves! I’ve also read more on closet building, thought more on my spending habits and even how I can be a better consumer in the face of fast fashion.

I think the key to living out of an instagram account is finding what truly matters and giving yourself space to build a true persona, rather than a public face and its this type of content you will get to see on the new, re vamped blog – less contrived and a lot more real!

Until then there is still plenty to see on Instagram and catch up on the last few months before we dive head first into the new! Now if only I could have a well formulated Instagram, that would be great! Anyone have any tips?

I’m one of those . . . You know the photograph everything people? Except we have spent a lot of time in beautiful mosques and temples and there is something so magical I’ve found to be walking around them barefoot that photographing anything seems like too much to remember when instead we can just breathe in the calmness of our surroundings.

I’m feeling incredibly zen this trip. London’s mentalness is gonna be quite the shock in fact!

So today I just wanted to apologise for not being around more! What kind of a blog mother just abandons her blog like that? Well this one apparently. See, heres the thing. We are going to India! For ten days and its completely zapping my brain function. Mainly because we are going for Christmas so I have be trying (and failing) to fit in all my many christmas related business.

Christmas shopping, seeing friends, packing, buying flight socks . . . you know, the normal! I am currently both excited and petrified. Its a delicate line im walking but one I can’t seem to stop so my creative outfit side is well . . . a little lacking. Today im wearing an odd mix of grey strips (high waisted mid length skirt)/white cropped tee, cream socks and grey not sensible if it snows ankle boots and leggings (cause wrestling with tights this morning just wasn’t happening! Needless to say I’m a bit of a mess.

Thank god we still have part three of one skirt, three ways! Yay! Look out next week for holiday snaps! In the meantime though, find me on Instagram+ and Pinterest+ where I have a fresh Board just for the blog! You lucky things you!
