My Monthly Roundup - My Instagram July 2015

July was a nice month. A chilled and relaxed month. We travelled, and we went out a lot, and we had some celebrations too. On my Instagram page I often try to share those little snippets of everyday life that might never find their way on my blog, and I try to share those little things that make me happy on that day. This month my Instagram was a lot about our trip to Finland, and a lot about family life...

1. This was a little snap from BritMums Live (a blogging conference for parent bloggers in UK) -  I wrote about my experience at BritMums but possibly the one thing I will forever remember is that I became a Guinness World Record Holder at the event (alongside about 700 other mums and dads for wrapping people as toilet paper mummies... OK a bit random but still!). 
2. In Finland we enjoyed the outdoors a lot, and this scenery... At my parents summer house <3
3. Little toddler fashion picture - she chose those shoes herself at H&M. 
4. We went to an amusement park with friends, and met up with another friend who had just given birth (pretty impressive tottering to an amusement park about three days after!). Our little group consisted of one newborn, three toddlers, one child and five extremely knackered adults!

5. When the first two words you hear in the morning are "No Mummy" you know you are in for a long day...
 6. Finland really is the land of Crocs - we saw them everywhere and we of course had them too! They are great at the countryside.
7. My little girl loves flying - as we were taking off the loudest sound you could hear in the plane was "Wheeeeeeeeee!". I am a nervous flyer myself and was mainly thinking about our impending doom (which obviously never happened...).
8. Love running around our local park- it is such a happy place for us. This picture was from a blog post about some ShoeZone trainers gifted to us

9. For a Throwback Thursday I shared a little snap from over two years ago... A great big belly shot. I was so happy, pregnancy suited me, and I really want to have another one now!
10. At the park, chilling, feet up in the air (because we just don't care!). 
11. Our little monkey has been a bit difficult this month and waking us up in the night... Not all is lost though in the sleep-deprived state as I discovered my new Starbucks favourite - Caramel Coffee Jelly. Because sometimes you need a sugar-slap in your face with a caffeine-kick up the butt.
12. Our trip to Coram's Fields was so much fun. Seriously, it is probably the best kids park in London so you should gander over there if you have a chance.

13.OK, the literary event of the year I was not going to miss. I cracked open my new book and a box of Guylian.
14. A little snapshot from my phone from Finland - a toddler really needs nothing else than a bit of sun and a bucket to have great fun!
15. It was my fourth anniversary at the end of July - my wedding day was the happiest day in my life and just wonderful. I wrote a bit about our first, second, third and fourth anniversary celebrations and how with kids anniversaries just get trickier and trickier to organise...
16.Every mummy (and daddy) knows what these are... Little treasures from great big adventures. 

And that was my July on Instagram and life in general.

In July I tried to make a conscious effort with my Instagram - I love it as a social media. I wanted to post one picture a day, just to see how that would be like. Well, I did forget all about my promise midway through, but still managed to post a fair few nice things in there. Let's hope August I'll manage one post a day in August!

Do you guys have Instagram accounts? And how was your July?

  1. What a lovely bunch of photos! You have been busy. How are you getting on with 'Go Set a Watchman'? It's on my to do list as I loved 'To Kill a Mockingbird'. I'm going through sleep deprivation right now with my toddler so I'll be looking out for that amazing-looking drink! I'm not sure about having jelly in a drink but I'll give it a go! What do you do with your toddler's treasures? Do you keep them or sneakily get rid of them when she's not looking? I feel like I need a whole room to keep my girls' treasures in! Becky x

    1. You know what, I started the book, and got to the Jean Louise returns to her old town, and after that have been far too tired to read anything... Been so busy with house stuff. So I think I'll make another start soon!

      The coffee jelly was so good though - it is a bit like those bubble tea type drinks, but here you just get little coffee explosions. I like it.

      And heh, those treasures... I try to persuade her to leave the sticks to the dogs at the park - sometimes it works. And when it doesn't I just chuck them in our garden once she has forgotten about them :)

      Thanks for linking!

  2. Sounds like a fab month. I hope you all enjoyed Finland! I'm new to Instagram, but I'm loving it so far, I love looking at everyone's photos! Thanks for hosting #MyMonthlyRoundup

It was so lovely, I had a great time, and wish I could have another two weeks there :) Instagram is such a lovely social media - I haven't been that active there, even if I do love logging into and finding beautiful pictures I haven't shared too much.
