Welcome to Instagram, Me!

So, I never jumped on the Instagram frenzy when it came out, partly because I don’t really post much on social media as I’m not sure what I have to say is worth hearing (the irony as I’m writing a blog!) but also, some of you may have noticed this with my Marie Kondo & Mrs Hinch posts, but I have quite an addictive personality, once an idea plants it’s seed I can’t let it go without exhausting it.

This became my main fear of getting Instagram, I wasn’t sure I would be able to cope with constantly seeing celebrities or other people’s rose tinted versions of themselves, and not compare myself. Plus if I did compare myself I wasn’t honestly sure if I was strong minded enough to realise THIS IS FAKE. Of course people put there general life on social media, however I think it’s important to take a step back and remind ourselves most people only put the very best part of themselves out there, that’s ok, but it gives off a false sense of normal to those of us just managing to hold it together!

But alas, I have caved, and created an Instagram account! Mostly so I can check out the fun memories my friends post after a night out, all I ever hear is “Oh you didn’t see all the pictures I put up from the party, oh yeah I forget you don’t have insta” ergh, so here we are, years behind the curve but hey ho!

It had however opened up a whole world of exciting new people I can follow for my own general musings! So happy days! Any recommendations for inspiring people worth following, let me know.

About Me

So I thought I’d give you all a little more insight about me…
I live in Kent (England) and commute into London daily for work. I’m twenty something, although thirty is looming closer with every birthday! I got married 18 months ago and have lived with my husband for almost 5 years and we’re currently going through the motions of extending our house. I absolutely love travelling, home decor, fashion, food, and my little dog Tiffany.

I love my little corner of the world and started this blog as a New Years Resolution to myself, it did however take me almost six weeks to have the guts to post anything. On the plus side I have a back log of posts that I now want to publish. So bear with me, my stuff is sporadic and currently doesn’t have much structure, but I think I’m still finding my feet and hoping it will ‘fall into place’ once I’ve been doing it a while?

Any tips or advice would be very welcome, I am yet to tell friends and family about my little blog, that’s the next leap of faith I need to take!

So…thanks for reading and supporting my posts and general ramblings, I hope you like them.
