Instagramming 1

After months of looking at other people’s weekly round up of Instagram posts (Pink Bow and Half Girl are some of my favourites), here is my first foray into making up one of my own! Instagram is one of those things that is incredibly addictive. Much like the the new Pinterest account that I’ve created (so much fun) it feels natural to post something every day, even if it is pretty mundane…like a custard cream biscuit! 

Round up 1 A

I love Sanrio characters- not just Hello Kitty, but also the Little Twin Stars which feature on my latest iPhone case. My youngest sister and I compared our painted nails (she has all the patience in the world when it comes to her leopard print nails). We ate New Year cake and Chinese turnip cake for dinner. A custard cream! One of the Waterstone’s stores in Birmingham is in a magnificent building that was once an ex-Victorian bank, the architecture and details are just beautiful.

Round up 1 B

New jumper and blouse from New Look. Train to London. The iconic Liberty. Afternoon Tea courtesy of Next (more on this later). A yummy little pastry. Awesome Chandelier in a fancy building which housed Polaroid Sunglasses’ press day.

Round up 1 C

I found a new illustrated edition of the Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett which was one of my fave books but also movie as a child. Breakfast. Bunting courtesy of Next. It snowed on Saturday! Dim Sum on Sunday. Making the most of the snow on Sunday afternoon.

Round up 1 D

It’s my sister’s 23rd birthday on Wednesday 8th but we always celebrate the cake cutting on the Sunday for various reasons (this means our birthdays always last for ages!). We always have tea to accompany our cake. I always document these occassions with my Fuji Instax and they go straight into my photo album. The 6th is the last day of Chinese New Year (it lasts for 15 days) and all the decorations around our house are all coming down for another year. Watercolours, getting creative and making a birthday card for Hailey.

I had fun putting this post together so I’m looking forward to making this a regular feature. Hope you all have a lovely week guys!
