Insta-April

With the wish of including more variety on my blog; beauty, home, lifestyle, topical, music, books, reviews, writing segments, (here's hoping, yano how bad I am at posting); I thought I'd approach April with another theme I've been thinking of including on soinspo: life through an Instagram lens.

Up until last Spring I never had IG, but after Boohoo featured me on their feed; here and hereI knew it was time to get involved! Talking of Boohoo if you caught Butterfly you'll know I'm already feeling the chill vibes of summer by rocking the maxi and crop combo! Hoping for more dazzle days like that. I really loved shooting, editing and creating that post even if the SS15 transit was a bit early ;)

  15. This is a great post! I love Instagram so much and how you can make any picture look good with the variety of filters available. I've got THREE accounts! What am I thinking! One is a personal account, ones is for Yazzy's Corner and the final one for my photography only (how will I keep up with them all?!)

    I loooove the variety you have in your Insta posts. From fashion to lifestyle, and that kitty is so cute! ^_^

Question is like you say, how will you keep up?! You're doing a great job so far, and not just via IG but with all the endless upkeep of your blogs, photography and website!

      Thank you so much Yaz! You're always too sweet to me with your lovely comments. You're the best! <3
