Recently I’ve been feeling very uninspired, something I often get when I’m ready for the seasons to change (already, I know!) Creating new content every day is difficult by any means, but with the current weather in Glasgow meaning there is little to no daylight it becomes so difficult to create high quality imagery. Due to this I have been so enjoying creating content for my instagram stories the past few weeks compared to my actual instagram feed.
I have been trying out new filters and editing styles on my stories that were representative of my mood and just how I was feeling in that moment. Mostly as I have learned that my instagram images do best when edited in that same grey style and tone I was searching for somewhere to be creative. I think ultimately what inspires me are the small things, I fall in love with the details and it’s those small details in day to day life like a new book on my coffee table or fresh flowers that inspire me.
At the same time of feeling all of the above, I was also feeling that I have been neglecting my blog and not putting the time and effort into the platform where I have most control. Then, I thought, why not put the two together and start a Weekly feature, where I can have a space to share what I love with you all and be as creative as I want, but not bombard my instagram feed with everything but fashion. I love my details features on my instagram, but it’s all fashion based, and funnily enough, it’s rarely other fashion that inspires what I wear.
Some of the images may have already been posted on stories but recently I done a poll and the results were that most people on Instagram don’t enjoy too many stories in one day. I also know that not everyone who reads my blog have the time to catch up on instagram stories within the 24 hours that they are live and so I thought this would be a nice way for me to share what’s inspiring me, what products i’m using, books i’m reading etc. that everyone can enjoy and easily come back and reference.
So, I hope you like my new weekly feature and also find it fun and somewhat inspiring, I know it’s mostly iPhone images currently but I have a few new camera’s on my list for this year so hoping to up the quality but in a less editorial way.
