Instagram – We Need to Talk

Instagram used to be one of my favourite apps. I was constantly inspired by my feed and, by all of the amazing content that appeared from the people I followed.

Recently I feel Instagram has changed and I’ve noticed my feed is inundated by more unattainable images of amazing travels, bodies, backdrops and gone are the days of sharing your morning coffee.

Happy Sunday Everyone! Steve and I have both been at home for well over a month now, which is the longest time we’ve both been in the country for the last two years! I’ve loved getting into a more homely routine. Here are my favourites from the last couple of weeks, also check out the end of the post for interesting things to read, do, listen to and watch this week!

Sunday Favourites Holiday Edition

I’m currently writing this post from a small island just off mainland Greece; we’ve been here for the last six days enjoying the sunshine, blue seas and copious amounts of feta cheese. It’s actually Steve and I’s first proper beach holiday since our honeymoon, though we travel frequently, it’s not often we travel somewhere with the main intention to just relax and not create content. However, I have found myself getting that pang of ‘I should be doing something right now’ and then reminding myself that it’s ok to take time out once in a while.

A Lesson on Self Confidence in NYC

I’ve been sitting on this post for a while. We shot the images after a long day of exploring in New York and it was the last location we came to. The street was super busy and a lot of people were queuing for a photo opportunity in front of the wall. When it came to my turn I was fine, up until a stranger came up to me and made a comment about me posing by the wall.

Where to buy homeware

Steve and I have nearly been in our flat for 5 years and it’s only just starting to look the way we want it to. It’s been a long journey that begun with 1970’s green carpets (even in the bathroom), broken sinks and a back garden with no back door. We’ve saved and worked hard to create the little flat of our dreams, which I’m so excited to share when it’s all finally finished.

Sunday Favourites

I know I haven’t written one of these posts in a while, but I wanted to bring them back on a more of an ad-hoc basis. I felt like some weeks I was posting these for the sake of posting and felt like some of the content lacked a bit of depth. After a while away I’ve decided to change these up a bit. Create a little curation of what I’ve been loving so you’ll still have a Sunday favourites but it might have a different take on each post.

What to watch on Netflix

Some weeks are so busy or head-space filling that I find one of the only ways to switch off is to sit and immerse myself in a good series. With it being bank holiday weekend in the UK, I thought I’d share some of the series that I’ve enjoyed on Netflix recently. I would also love to hear if you have any favourites too!

10 Things you should know about owning a dog

I’ve been a dog owner for just over six years. Though it’s hard to get my head around the fact I’ve had a little buddy by my side for that long, it’s even harder to imagine life without them. Steve and I got our first dog, Bai when we were 22 years old; in hindsight, it’s quite young to have full time care of a dog and I wouldn’t say we were very prepared for the adventures and misadventures our little buddies could bring!

I’ve never written a post about Bai and Blue, so I thought I would share what I’ve learned about owning a dog over the past few years. These are my own personal thoughts and I’m by no means an expert, but if you are looking to get your first dog, these are a few things to bear in mind.

I went to an all girls school and liked it…

I once asked someone if they’d attended an all girls school growing up and their exact response was; ‘My parents would never do that to me’. At first I laughed it off and then I realised that this is a common reaction when I tell people that I spent most of my teenage years in a school filled with 300 girls. There’s this weird misconception that when you go to an all girls school, 100% of the girls are boy mad and it’s the bitchiest and worst place you’ll ever step foot in. In some cases I’m not going to lie, this could be the case, but my experience taught me a very positive side to being surrounded by a group of girls your own age for 6 years and I thought I’d share them with you.
