Welcome to a new week. Did you have a good weekend? I feel extra relaxed because I went back home to visit my parents this weekend and took Monday off. Can three day weekends always be a thing please and thank you! I took my Mum to the park on Sunday and made her be my photographer so I could frolick in the autumn leaves. It was really fun (for me anyway.) Mum had this uncanny knack for capturing me with my eyes closed though. This got me thinking, it’s about time I shared a little behind the scenes action with you all again…so here we are!
So today we are taking a wee sneak peek behind the scenes of my Instagram photos, because there is so much more than what you see!
Behind the scenes of that Instagram…
First up we have the classic donut photo. Call me crazy but I’m almost certain that every blogger has a pic of a donut on their Instagram feed. So I figured it must be the defining feature of a real blogger and naturally had to join in the fun. I thought this was my very first ever donut picture which I proudly told everyone, but apparently it actually wasn’t.
I posted this one three weeks earlier. So much for that!
So I picked up these soaps from the Go Green expo a couple of weeks back in Auckland. I won tickets to the expo which I was hella excited about because winning stuff is awesome but when I got there I discovered this thing was waaaay more alternative than I was expecting!
There were stalls selling those magnetic healing bracelets, crystals and the crowning jewel of it all…roasted crickets! Who just casually munches on roasted crickets? Not me!
I did try one however (because I am no whimp) and they just tasted like disappointing, powdery popcorn. Meh it wasn’t a life changing experience.
My friend had her birthday party and it was a 2000’s themed dress up. So I took that to mean come dressed as someone from the 2000’s era and I picked Mia from the Princess diaries because it meant I got to wear a tiara. Apparently, that was NOT what the theme meant.
We were supposed to dress up in the sort of clothes we wore in the 2000’s doh! So picture this: me dressed as a princess surrounded by emos, surfer guys and preppy neon girls. Awkward!
Our small group used to always meet on a Saturdays in the city and on this particular Saturday the rain was torrential. I did not feel like going out in that awful weather so tried to protest our meeting time and postpone it however, the others thought I was being dramatic and overruled me (I wasn’t and how rude!)
So I braved the horrid weather which had turned the streets into a literal river (again, not dramatic whatsoever) and I got completely drenched. We had a good time all the same but boy was I not impressed.
This was taken just before the Adele concert and we were so excited (as you can see.) There had been all kinds of warnings that the traffic getting to the concert was gonna be terrible so we purposefully got there super duper early. So we were sitting in our seats waiting for a pretty decent amount of time.
I made the mistake of going to the concert with two hardcore Adele fans who while we were waiting, kept grilling me about all the Adele facts I didn’t know (for shame.)
We also got kicked out of our seats because we accidentally sat in someone else’s oops. But turns out our actual seats were better anyway so no harm, no foul.
I visited my Gran for the weekend and we went out to dinner together which was the cutest thing ever. I think I may have exasperated the waiter a little because I could not for the life of me decide on which pizza option I wanted.
It took me far too long and then I somehow missed the back of the drinks menu so after he had spent ages recommending drinks to me and had gone to pour me a glass, I had to tell him I made the wrong choice.
He was obviously a seasoned pro though because he was all smiles. Doesn’t he know not to rush a lady while she is ordering?!
See I told you, a picture doesn’t always tell the full story.There is so much that goes on behind the scenes of an Instagram photo... Click To Tweet
Now tell me…
Do you take ages to order food?
Are you a super-fan of anything or anyone?
