An Instagram Recap

There was a time when I did these Instagram (shameless plug) round-up's monthly. I used to adore taking pictures and sharing them with whoever cared, but I've since lost my drive. I think that the negatives that have been surrounding Instagram for some time now have contributed to the fact that I've been finding it hard to upload consistently. I can't blame it all (or even most of it) on Instagram, though.. I just haven't had the motivation to take photos in general for a while now, let alone publish anything to Instagram. Don't get me wrong, I still use the app every single day. I scroll through my feed religiously. I like photos, I watch stories, I comment but I just don't have any content to publish these days which makes a monthly Instagram round-up pretty redundant.

I've actually made it a goal to post to Instagram at least once a week, every week this month (so far, so good!) so, I thought that I would post the pitiful amount of photos that I did publish between December and March in the hopes that it will motivate me to get back in to the swing of posting, or even just taking photos to begin with:

This is exactly what I was talking about! Christmas Eve! I haven't posted enough to recap since Christmas friggin' Eve!
Here is the full post about how I relax on Christmas Eve. Relevant.

I love desk tours! I've been working of getting my own desk area to be a more inspiring place lately.

I'm a massive bookworm! Here is the full post about what I had been reading here and if you have any book suggestions for me, I'm always open to hearing them!

There's nothing better to me than a good, authentic wood fired Margherita pizza.


My little Milla girl. <3

The $6 I spent on this doormat was the best $6 I've ever spent.

I've always thought cotton candy skies were so magical.

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

    Great posts! It can be draining but if you put in the time, you can see results!

  3. YES! that pizza place sounds awesome and although insta can be super frustrating- i try to share how much i adore pictures and look at the positive rather than all the negative that comes w/ it !

  4. Omg your food photos are too good.. they're making me hungry! And that welcome mat!!! hahaha oh my goodness! I love seeing other people's desks too!

  5. I sometimes find Instagram frustrating, but I try to focus on how much I love taking photos and sharing the highlights from my day instead. These are absolutely gorgeous photos too! The pup is easily my favourite though 😍

  6. Love your desk. I love the white color and the little pops of gold. I also love Italian styled pizza like pictured. We have a restaurant that makes then, but we don't go there that often since it can be expensive with the whole family.

  7. Oh man. Looking back has made me crave this exact pizza all over again ahah. So good! x

  8. That's a great way to go about it, Indya. :) I just need to re-discover my love for taking photos. Thank you, lovely - my Milla is pretty adorable, if I do say so myself. ;) xx

  9. Haha I love taking food photos because it evokes that exact reaction. ;)
    The welcome mat! It's definitely my favourite dΓ©cor piece in the house haha. x

  10. Agreed, Erin! :) I've just got to re-discover my passion. :) x

  11. This dang pizza! I die.
    Aw, that's a lovely way to treat Instragram, girl. :) I've gotta get in to your mindset. x

  12. Thanks, Julie. :) I'm quite proud of my desk situation right now haha.
    I could imagine it would get rather pricey for a family. Definitely a once-in-a-blue-moon type treat. x

  13. Well now you've made me hungry with the pizza and fries photos!!! Looks delicious!
