My Month on Instagram - December.

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 the past month looked something like this:

I treated myself to a little pre-Christmas shopping. I went with the intention of doing my Christmas shopping and picking myself up a 2016 planner.. One of those things happened, plus a few more treats, minus any actual Christmas shopping for anyone else. Whoops. 

I'm always insanely proud of myself whenever I give myself a successful smokey eye. This was mad face for Jesse's work's Christmas function.

The essay of a caption pretty much says it all.. You can read up on my achievement here.

You can't beat homemade eggnog.. in bed.. in cute pants. It just keeps getting better.

Aaaannnd then I made eggnog, because I gave myself cravings with aforementioned Instagram post. Yup.

Work took my French couisne-ginity for our Christmas function and I've never felt more fancy.

Christmas gift cards are my favourite thing. Ever. You can see my full haul here.

I'm definitely not a salad person but THIS SALAD, guys. My God. Plus, I'm pretty sure halloumi can end wars.

I love finding new bloggers on Instagram; leave your account deets in the comments!


  1. I love that you're piecing together instagram posts for your blog so that you don't miss the goodiess that have been posted on your blog. And these are some great pictures too! Keep up the good work! <3

  2. Thank you. :) I love looking back on, and sharing my miscellaneous bunch of fond memories and little adventures from the past month or so. x

  3. The salad looks yummy! Recently I've been craving salads, which is weird for me, because I'm not usually the biggest salad fan, either.

    Instagram is my favorite social channel. I actually enjoy it more than Pinterest. I have so many photos there that don't make it to my blog. I am at fitnessmomwinecountry if you are not following yet :)

  5. This is so awesome!! It's like an Instagram quilt of pictures :) The salad and the eggnog look delicious :)

  6. Yasss!! Instagram trumps all other social channels for me too.
    Giving your account a follow. :) x

  7. That's the perfect way to describe it - an Instagram quilt! Love it. :) x

  12. This is such a unique post idea! I must say I don't think I've seen anything like it, but I love the concept. I might have to steal it, but just do periodic digests of my book news that has gotten shared on social media. So one, thanks for the inspiration.

    Two - I am soooo envious of your Lush haul! The facial cleansers alone are drool-worthy!

  13. Aha aww steal away, you're very welcome. :)
    and thank you - I love me some LUSH, good little spree if I do say so myself. :P x
