Instagram roundup – October

My new favourite lazy way to wind down the month is with an Instagram roundup. I’m in my second month of Instagram and I basically think it’s the neatest thing out there. I like stuff and I like taking pictures of stuff and I like looking at pictures of other people’s stuff and therefore I’m into Instagram. It’s the little things, right? 
This month I also wrote, directed, shot and narrated my very first Insta-video … 

… Which I’m embarrassingly proud of*. Special thanks to one of my BFF’s who bought me / our cats that little delight. And for the record, Juniper and Toshi are now plotting her death.

And in the day that it is – HALLOWEEN! – it would be a shame not to share with you thee biggest sewing project I’ve worked on to date. Prepare your retinas …

Since I was about 10 years old I’ve wanted to be Lydia in her red wedding dress for Halloween. Finally, I did it. One month of sewing and she’s finally complete. I will however be a happy girl if I never have to sew with such retina-burning-red ever again, but it was sew worth it …Also please ignore the complete creeper look on my face. I cannot explain that. So from me and mine to you and yours – happy Halloween! 🙂 xx A
*I’ve always wanted to cross over into vlogging {video blogging}, but I’ve never built up enough courage to sit in front of the camera. Maybe in November I’ll do it. I said maybe …

    HOW IMPRESSED AM I??!! Wow, that costume is complete perfection!! You'd better wear that for every Halloween for the rest of time! How could you ever top it?! (Forgot to say on your post the other day/week, whenever it was – so surprised you're a natural blonde – you really suit dark hair!)
    Cool video thingy too – funny to hear your voice! (Not that your voice is funny!) Defo do some vlogging!
    Happy Halloween!

    I loved listening to you speak, your accent is cute. Kinda wierd hearing you after such a long time (I mean that in a nice way). I can't wait to see/hear more vlogs from you. By the way you nailed the Halloween costume. Heck I can see why the "Lydia" dress would have done your eyes in, that is a whole lotta retina red burning fabric that you have there.

    Thanks ladies! It was even weird for me to hear my voice. Husband verified I actually sound like that, unfortunately. We'll see about vlogging … Maybe …

    p.s. I entered my Halloween costume into a competition, and I won! Wewt 🙂
