Hello you, hello lovelies, hello chums.
I’ve been staring at the screen for the past 10 minutes, debating what to write about and what to share with you. My mind has been all over the place. With the little details that’d never share with you, along with where to shoot some photos next. I say shoot, but I just get the mister and myself out with my iPhone. (I haven’t quite got the gist of my new camera lens).
It’s currently midday on a Sunday and I have enchiladas in the oven, along with pizza fries. Whose winning? I know, me. So let’s get chatting and let me tell you what’s going on in the life of Tay.
Big topic, Instagram.
Instagram. Instagram, Instagram, Instagram. We’re so focused on the app, that we’re even focusing on what everyone else is doing. All questioning where these people got their latest Preset over on Lightroom, whose got the best hashtags. Or whether these hashtags are even worth using? There’s bloggers who are selling these blogger ‘packs’ – where they’re sharing these Lightroom presets that they’ve discovered. Which I mean, if people are enjoying your photos and asking the questions of how you finally got the edit that everyone wants. It’s a great idea. But the £30 price mark to me is a little steep. Lightroom allows you to play around and try out new edits. With the amount of options you have on the app, you can play, like and save it. Me? I just use VSCO. The choices you can get within VSCO is as good as Lightroom. If you’d like to hear more on my topic of photography – you can read all about it here.
What else has been playing on my mind, or going on in the life of Tay?
I’M GOING ON HOLIDAY IN UNDER TWO WEEKS. That’s pretty exciting, for myself. We’re off to our favourite Marbella / Puerto Banus. I have been looking all over social media at the cutest places for photos. Where looks good to eat, and I’m still not done researching. If only the mister knew how this holiday is really going to be. No, I am excited to just sit by the pool with my book. I want to relax so much, my brain and body fully needs this holiday. Especially after my gym class this morning – body pump ruined me. R.I.P me. Don’t worry, I’ll be taking you all with me and a blog post will come shortly after my holiday. Because hello new camera lens and hello more fashion shots.
You may have seen over on my Instagram, a lot more fashion based photos are coming to the horizon. I’m really feeling the outfit shots, but it worries me. I’ll never be the blogger who has a new wardrobe edition every day. I have other priorities in my life with my money, and I’m just never going to be that blogger. I asked my followers whether this would bother them or not, and I actually got a bette response than I expected! I had messages about transitioning outfits from Summer to Winter which I’m very here for. I got messages about just adding in my new handbag purchase, instead of a new outfit. (I’m a handbag addict, shortly along with shoes too). I want to explore new locations and play with it around with that side of things.
I’m becoming ever so lazy on messaging people back.
G u i l t y.
I could receive a message from a friend about making some plans or just generally asking how I am. I’ll see the message and just think – *I’ll message them back later.* Then I carry on with what I’m actually doing, whether that’s watching another episode of friends or rushing around town like a headless chicken. I just find from growing up, you don’t need to message those close to you straight away. It’s not like being in your school years where you don’t message back a friend, and suddenly get that message again to say ‘have I done something?’ I haven’t ever thought about taking off my read receipts on iMessage. If people can see that I’ve read the message or even been online on Whats App. I couldn’t really give a —-.
The importance of messaging someone back these days have become a lot less, and the worry of others doing the same – I don’t think twice of it. I just want to do what I got to do, and speak to those when I want. I can actually sit down and text out a message properly, unlike doing it on the go of something and missing out half the message.
So that’s my little life update.
No engagement, no pregnancy, no moving out just yet. Just a filled, happy stomach of pizza fries and enchiladas. Whether your a friend or not, you know I don’t reply on purpose. I’m sure I’m not the only one who does this too. Oh and also, Instagram is still a load of —-. Nothing new, just that I’ll be getting myself a tan in a couple of weeks and the category ‘Fashion’ is going to be showing up a lot more on here. The old blog.
