As most of you will know I am a bit of a social media addicted, well mostly Twitter actually, but I now have a new vice, Instagram, and I’m not ashamed to admit it!
I was once a Blackberry girl so I admired everyone’s wonderfully filtered images from a far, but now I snap away with my HTC so I’ve have finally joined the gang, and I’m getting a little obsessed with framing the most perfect square-shaped image.
I know that some people have a favourite filter, I am partial to a lot – Lo-Fi really works well with fashion shots, I love scenery shots with a hint of Earlybird, Hefe always gives me the best complexion, I like the vintage feel of 1977, and just for fun I love the Kelvin effect, so basically I like to chop and change.
Putting together this blog post I discovered that I do love showing off my arm candy, snapping cute piccies of my three kitty monsters, I’m like a bee to honey with floral displays, I am fascinated by street art, and I love to share shopping finds, as well as all of the cute, adorable and stylish things in my life. Basically I treat my feed as a photo diary.
But as well as enjoying snapping and filtering my own images I am also obsessed with following, I love being inspired by pretty things and Instagram is amazing inspiration.
Some of the many peeps I love following:
