Instagram is one of my favorite apps. Shocker, I know. I love being able to connect with fellow bloggers and YouTubers now that I've made my account public (read about that in this post), and of course showcasing my photography, things I've been loving, what I've been up to, and the occasional selfie. Lately I have really been liking my Instagram. It captures the essence of who I am and what I enjoy. It shows my growth and investment in certain areas. It has also made me discover new hobbies I'd like to undertake. Instagram is my virtual happy place, apart from my blog, because it makes me reflective and puts things into perspective, too; just in a more spontaneous and relaxed way.
A biweekly habit of mine is visiting antique and consignment shops and then hitting-up the nearest café afterwards. Most of these photos are from such days. When perusing these places, I'm always so inspired to create similar products as what I see, since the shabby chic antique style is very much up my alley. I always thought, "I just wish I could do that, too." A couple of weeks ago it dawned on me- why couldn't I make such items? I am a content creator everyday be it written, dainty decor, or photography. Creativity is such a fundamental part of who I am. Instagram may make me happy, but being creative is what makes me content. So why not try flipping, upcycling, and simply making?
That is my new endeavor. I'm just going for it. Sometimes you have to just do it. Since my mum is so similar to me in this way, we've decided to make it a team effort and work together. This weekend we are going to some flea markets and shops to see what we can find and get this party started. I already have so many designs and ideas in mind that I can't wait to turn into physical creations.
I'd love to take you along this journey. Would vlogging and DIY videos about this be of interest to you? Let me know!
