My Favourite Instagram Shots of the Week 16/10/16

Hi Guys,

Instagram is one of my favourite social media apps, and for one simple reason. As someone who likes, no, needs some good visuals in their life, I love scrolling through an app just chock full of pictures. Pictures of food, pictures of animals, pictures of places, pictures of anything! I love Instagram!

I love to use Instagram for inspiration. One picture posted might spark an intense desire to plan a trip to Switzerland or Austria, or cook up some spectacular dinner plans. The only thing I don’t like is your innability to save Instas. You have to go looking for them again once you’ve scrolled past them, and if you follow as many people as I do, it can sometimes mean you lose the photo.

So I’m gonna cheat. Sort of.

I’m gonna start up a wee Sunday round up of my favourite Instas of the week, as a way to share their fabulousness with you, and to keep hold of their links.

How utterly stunning are the colours in this Photograph!?!?! That sky is just something else!! I just couldn’t not add this to a round up of my  favourites. It would have been sacrilege.


The atmosphere in this Insta is incredible. And such a great inspiration boost. What is this person’s story? Why are they here? Oh, the stories that could be written. If you’re a writer, you are welcome. Enjoy. If you are a traveller, I believe this snap was taken at The Dark Hedges in Ireland.


I’ll just leave this here. Gave me a good giggle.


Winter is Coming… #Hallstatt 😎#30countries30days

I sat staring at this Photo for a good long while when I came across it yesterday. It’s stunning. I then proceeded to show all my friends at the table I was sitting at, and one particular reaction inspired me to add Hallstatt to my Wanderlust list. My friend Helen lived in Austria for a while, and the light and excitement that showed in her face when she recognised Halstatt in the image was so infectious that I intend to journey to Austria as soon as possible.


Shout out to my fabulous friend Suzie Murphy for this fabulous snap of the curtain at Glasgow Theatre Royal! Is there any better view in the world than that of the velvet red curtain hanging heavy, just ready to unveil the wonders that await behind it? I’m not sure there is.

So there you have it, my Instagram round up of this week. Which was your favourite? Want me to add yours to next week? Then leave me a link in the comments and I’ll take a look!
