Why I'll Be Making an Effort with Film Photography

Friday, 18 January 2019

film photography
I bought my first disposable camera last year for my summer holiday in Portugal after seeing so many people trialling film photography. I didn't go for anything fancy, I literally just bought a couple of cheap disposable cameras from Amazon (I bought the Fujifilm Quick Snap) and I absolutely loved the photos I took. The whole process of taking a photo and not knowing what it will look like until it is developed makes it all so exciting! It took me a while to get mine developed over the summer but once I did, it felt like I was reliving my holiday all over again which I loved. I really want to make an effort to use film cameras so much more!

My 2019 Travel Plans

2019 travel plans
January is supposed to be one of the most popular months for booking holidays, it seems we're all struck with the January blues and itching to get away! I wouldn't say I have the travel bug but I definitely enjoy the time off (or time away I should say as I don't think I ever really take time off from work ever). Somehow I've ended up booking two trips so far this year and as if that wasn't enough, I'm also heading on a snowy getaway later on in the month! So 2019 is quickly filling up with travel plans which has been completely unexpected.

Focusing Less on Hauls and the New, New, New Culture

reducing fast fashion consumption
This is such a tricky topic for me if I'm being completely honest but I want to try and do better. The thing is, with this job comes a lot of new stuff: new clothes, new shoes, new equipment, new tech - there's a lot of new items I talk about because that's a huge part of what I do. Equally, I'm becoming more and more aware of the impact this has on the environment and fast fashion in general so it's something I'm aiming to think about more throughout 2019. This year is all about trial and error for me, just trying to better my shopping habits in a way that still allows my content to be appealing.

My Year (2018) On Instagram: The Statistics

Tuesday, 8 January 2019

2018 instagram statistics
Happy New Year! We're officially in 2019 and I don't know about you, but I'm counting this week as the first week back (last week was a trial run!) I've been working on some content for the new year and high up on my list was to share my year on Instagram so that's what today's post is all about. 2018 was a really good year of growth for me on the platform, practically doubling my following from 27.7k at the start of the year to 54.7k by the end, and despite not having any tips or tricks to share - what I do have is a detailed look at my year on Instagram: my top performing photos, the rise (and fall) of my following monthly and a few things I've noticed along the way. Whether you want to learn more about Instagram or simply have a nosey at what happened throughout the year for me, then I hope this post is insightful.
