Instagram is without doubt, my favourite social media platform. I love to take photos, and my favourite form of procrastination is scrolling through endless hashtags on the app... seriously how do I lose two hours of my life a night to Instagram?! 

I thought I'd do a little bit of a catch up post of some of my most recent snaps, if you'd like to follow me you can find me at thatspeachy and please don't forget to leave me a comment so I can follow you back. 

I go through phases with selfies, sometimes I take one every day, then I can go a week without taking any! If I do happen to be taking any, Insta is the place to find them; this first picture actually being a Snapchat pic, but seriously who doesn't love that filter?!

I was in London last weekend and couldn't resist taking a photograph of the beautiful flowers outside Liberty, I think it's a blogger rule that you have to capture these as you're walking by! I just wish I didn't have such a long train journey home so that I could have brought some back with me.

I love photographing makeup for Instagram, and for some reason I always prefer my iPhone shots to those taken on my camera! This is one of my favourite pictures I've taken recently, of some pieces from the beautiful bareMinerals Lovescape collection

I've been finding fashion blogging difficult this year, as I don't have anyone to take my photos for me and I have to rely on my tripod. I also don't have anywhere great to shoot pictures, so I often use my Instagram to show my favourite pieces of clothing, or things that I'm wearing. I fell in love with these Topshop boots when I first set eyes on them, and grabbed myself a pair when they were on offer - I wear them all of the time and I'm so glad I treated myself!
Everytime I visit my favourite place in Newcastle, I have to take a photo... I am of course talking about The Brownie Bar, and yes, I'm sorry, nine times out of ten the photo will be of their Oreo brownie - they're amazing!

One of my favourite outfits that I've worn recently... I really must shoot some proper blog photos to show you next time I wear it, I'm all about the monochrome!

Myself and Ray snapped a quick selfie while waiting for our train to IMATS in London last weekend... Please ignore the bags under my eyes, we'd been awake since 6am!

I've really been embracing the nude lip lately (which usually isn't my thing!) I took my time laying out and creating a very Insta-worthy shot of my favourites including Urban Decay 'Liar' gloss, Laura Geller 'Honey Fizz' lip crayon and Tom Ford "revolve' lipstick which are my go-to's at the moment.
I've been spending a lot of time in Newcastle over the past few months for various events and days out and I can't get enough of it. It's by far my favourite city as there are so many places to go and things to do, I always wish I lived there but don't want to move now that Elodie is so settled in school... Instead I'll just have to keep visiting.

One rare sunny afternoon I took Elodie to the seafront for an ice cream as a treat after school and she loved it so much. It was really nice to sit in the sun and relax after a busy day and of course the strawberry top ice cream with fudge stick wasn't bad either!

I felt like another typical blogger photo op had to be taken when I saw this beautiful blossom tree... How could I walk past without grabbing a shot for Instagram?

Lastly, Im always posting photos of my meals on my account, I just can't resist. This photo in particular was my curry from Akbars in Middlesbrough - the best Indian restaurant! We went to celebrate my friend's birthday a few weeks ago and had the best night. I can't recommend this place enough, if you live near to one of their restaurants you have to give it a try!

Do you love Instagram as much as I do?
