I Instagram: June 2013 Diary


I share so many moments via my many social media feeds, especially Instagram, that I thought it would be nice to start a monthly round-up of some of my favourite snaps. So here goes, this was my June!

It has been a busy fashion month: lot of brands held their autumn/winter 2013 press days, highlights being the Pri-mates at Primark and the ultimate arm candy jewellery stack at Astley Clarke; the sunny weather has inspired window dressers across London with my favourite being the pre-historic display at Louis Vuitton with the model sat on a dinosaur; and this month also showcased future fashion talent at Graduate Fashion Week, I have already blogged some of the winners but here is one of the more extreme menswear collections – complete with baby bumps and full bodysuits.


I also became a little, OK a lot, obsessed with the A Beautiful Mess app, which generally just makes any picture prettier, girlie and a whole lot more fun, which seemed fitting to show off these amazing heels from Primark, adorable flowers in my garden, and my birthday swag!!!


It wouldn’t be my Instagram diary without a few, sorry a lot of cute piccies – from my JD Kitty to cute cygnets, life-sized giraffes for the garden, and even a lost My Little Pony Unicorn toy – all together now – awwwwwww!!!!

The final selection is kind of a mix bag: a cool Mustang spotted at my village’s summer fête; my new toy the Canon PowerShotN; the cutest USB ever – a Revenge Wears Prada stiletto; a lion door knocker; my glamorous pals – Kate, Emily and Alex; a buttercup, just because; the eye of a Nissan Figaro my new favourite car; birthday chocolates from San Francisco; the most incredible chandelier made of skipping ropes, basket ball hoops, trainers and tennis balls; and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory afternoon tea at One Aldwych.

That was my June – was yours just as fun?
