It’s time for another behind the scenes look at my Instagram! And like last time, I’m showing you the before and afters too.

Lets get started…

The above photo is one of my favourite recent ones that I’ve done lately, and it honestly happened on such a whim! I wasn’t even thinking about picture ideas, I was just going on a walk on my work break when I saw a holly bush, and had the idea to take a picture for Kika’s hashtag, my found wings. I took my phone on something random at the park using the self-timer, and added the wings in afterwards. A pretty easy process and I love how it came out, although I did have to change the leaves a little in photoshop as one was broken!



While at Whitby, I wanted to take advantage of the beautiful scenery and get a shot for the grid, so I had the idea to come up with a funny, silly one with this stick of rock- which only cost me 35p ;). Luckily there wasn’t too many people around while I stood there sticking my tongue out! (Dan happily obilgied to take this one, maybe he’s getting used to my crazy Instagram ideas after all?) I love how the light looks in this photo, and it added a bit of humour into my feed, which I really like. Plus, look at the colours of the cottages behind, beautiful!


When I was doing Sara’s Bloom & Grow last year, I loved using flowers as props in my pictures. It’s not something I’ve thought about for a while, but I want to carry that on this year, hopefully. I love the whimsical touch flowers give, and I’m obsessed with the idea of putting them somewhere a little different. I wish the light was a bit clearer in this photo but unfortunately that’s just what you get in winter and using your iPhone camera, never mind! Fun fact: I added a bit of kitchen roll in the bowl so I didn’t use as many petals 🙂
