My Month on Instagram - April.

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! At least I was..

Are you guys all as disgusted with the "improved" version as I am? That logo, tho.
I mean, sure, the principle is still the same - It is still the perfect outlet for posting inspiration and little snippets of life, and seeing what my favourite bloggers and friends are up to. But now the aesthetic is all off, in my humble opinion anyways, and I'm dreading the implementation of the "see popular first" algorithm (my feed is unaffected at this point in time, but I've seen reports of it happening to others - eek).

Anywhoo, rant over.
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:

If you haven't already seen, I got tattoo number two.

English breakfast tea is Christie's brunch staple, and we brunched a lot over April. A lot.

Fellow Perth-ians: do yourself a favour and check out Toast in East Perth. It's right on the waterfront and has the best brunch menu.

HOLY HASHTAG! The very next day after posting my wishlist, I picked up Too Faced's Chocolate Bar Palette. I also got my hands on BECCA's backlight priming filter (featured in April's favourites) on sale. Treat yo'self.

I wasn't kidding when I said we brunched a lot. Possibly due to the fact that I discovered the @breakfastinperth instagram account and NEED to try all the places.

Kinky Swell is also a must-visit brunch spot, Perth dwellers. I'm doing you a massive favour here.

I bought Hilltop Hoods tickets for Jesse's birthday and it was a dang good show, not gonna lie.

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

What do you think of the "improved" Instagram?


  1. I've been craving going out for breakfast recently, actually--sometimes I almost forget that's an option, since we are more likely to hit up restaurants for lunch or dinner, but restaurant breakfast food is really good!

  2. Your breakfast photos look so good! They're making me hungry haha!

    I love your tattoo!

  4. Your new tattoo is super cute! I love it! And the pancake stack looks like breakfast perfection! The picture of everyone lighting it up is so pretty! I just love it!

  5. So nice. I love these posts. I did one as well a while back!

  6. Mmh, that breakfast looks delicious! And is there a way to spend too much money on cosmetics? I don't think so! haha

  7. Oh my those breakfast photos look delicious! I love your tattoo!

  8. Breakfast/brunch has only just become a "thing" for me too. Aside from the fact that I don't drag myself out of bed until past 11 on the weekends, we are also more likely to go out for dinner. But man! This whole breakfast thing is the bomb aha. A whole different feel to the usual dinners out. x

  9. Ahaha I get the same whenever I re-see them stilling in my photo gallery. x

  10. Thank you, thank you, and thank you. :P x

  11. Instagram round-ups are definitely one of my favourite posts to read, too. :) x

  12. It was dang delicious. :P
    Aha I have to agree with you there, girl. Unfortunately my partner doesn't share our enthusiasm for pricey cosmetics - sigh. :P x

  13. Looks like such a fun month! And I love the tattoo!! Thank you for sharing!

  14. Aw thank you. And thanks for stopping by. :) x
