My Month on Instagram - May


If you've been following Christie's Take on Life for any amount of time, you'd surely know by now that I'm a major lover of Instagram! It's the perfect outlet for posting inspiration and little snippets of life, and seeing what my favourite bloggers and friends are up to.

There are so many times that my Instagram posts never make it to my blog, and that's a damn shame because I consider myself to be quite the photographer..
..Not really, but it's a shame nonetheless!

Instalife over the past month looked something like this:



Look at me attempting an artsy shot.


Kindly ignore the God-awful quality of this embarrassing attempt of a flatlay. I thought my camera was broken.. turns out I just hadn't charged it. Nailing blogging, guys. Nailing. Blogging.


I attended another workshop for my Diploma. I'm so grateful that I have a full-time job that allows me to take time off to pursue my dream career (which is in no way related to the current line of work that I am in).


I don't even care that this guy gets in the way when you try to drink, the displeasure in Jesse's face whenever I say "Mana-tee" (he loves my puns) makes it more than worth it.


THIS PIZZA, GUYS! This pizza is what has converted me from an avid pizza hater, to a 'pizza is okay'-er.


Check out Good Things in Mosman Park, Perthians. Do it. Do it now.


Deep fried vegetables are still vegetables. I'm all about the clean eating. Yup.



I love finding pretty new feeds to follow on Instagram; leave your account deets in the comments, or come find me: @christieee__x!

  3. This is such a good idea! I love Instagram but Snapchat gets all the good stuff for me. It would be cool to do something like this for the Snap!! haha

  4. Oh, and as a little advice, you should embed your Instagram posts so that they're easy for readers to like and easy for them to comment. That way they can just click them and follow you. (I may or may not have clicked on it 5 times before i realized it wasn't a link haha)

  8. Great post! I am thinking of a way to engage more on Instagram. It's finding the time ... having 3 dogs and 1 kid means my time is soooooo not my own. Great post! Enjoy your summer!

  30. I think I need to take some time away from the 9 to 5, send the kiddo to her Dads and have a staycation in the house where I just brainstorm social media engagement ideas.... complimented by a lovely glass of red wine.
