Instagram roundup – September

Since I signed up to the Instagram machine at the beginning of this month, I thought it would be fun to do a little monthly round up of my favourite Instapics. And when I say fun, in reality it’s fun for me and probably incredibly boring for you guys … I selected my favourite 15 photos and added them in Instagram order; starting at the bottom right to the most recent on the top left. 
I was a bit surprised though when I looked through this months photos; very few of them were design related. Which is mostly down to me being a bit MIA for the past two weeks. My usual routine was affected, I had no access to a computer and kissed my spare time goodbye. At first I panicked. Oh god, I have to race home and create, photograph and write up 3 blog posts, schedule them, also co-ordinate and schedule social media notifications. Fuuuuuu! I fought it for a couple of days. But then I kind of welcomed it. I took advantage of the opportunity to step back, gather my thoughts, and scribble lots of ideas on some well placed post-its. 
Sometimes we need a little break from our usual schedule and daily routine, but now I’m back with a notebook full of ideas and some exciting dates coming up. And more importantly, my favourite season has started to kick in – scarves, hot drinks, mittens and crunchy leaves. Oh autumn, I love you so!
Of course, if you’d like to follow along, you can find me on Instagram here! See you back here on Wednesday 🙂 xx A

    Glad you're back and ready to shower us with design goodness! Autumn is my favorite, as well. I feel so energized after the hot, lazy summer days.

      Thanks Barb! And I'm glad I'm among friends re: autumn. I heart it so much. Except I wish it would stop raining here in Dublin …

    I love Autumn too, my favourite season. I've been a bit absent on Instagram – I've not really committed to it very well so far, a lack of dedication! I may improve… Your round-up looks good – nice purpley plummy colours!

      Go at your own pace, Maria. Your pictures have been adorable! I would however love to see more snippets of your renovations. But that's just me being incredibly selfish 😉 MOAR.

    I am glad I wasn't the only one who was MIA.
    Funnily enough, blogging is a fun pastime, and yet I too feel panicked when I haven't posted.
    Anyway, I am catching up on other people's posts, and yours (of course) is always the first one I check. Glad I didn't miss to much.

    I see that the instagram moster has gotten its claws into you.
    So far, I have managed to resist… but I don't know how much longer I can hold out…
    Must resist…

      Totes agree. I love blogging so much, but if I don't post for a couple of days, paralyzing panic sets in! And then guilt. And then doubt. But I love it so hard.

      Seriously Patricia, I was thinking last night, I would actually squee if you were on the Instagram monster. No pressure of course. If you love snapping pics on your phone, it's a great place to dump them.
