#febphotoaday Instagram 01.02.12

Happy first of Feb!

Having officially moved into the Leeds Met Civic Library, I’ve been busy trying to make a start on my last semesters assignments and the dreaded dissertation, can’t quite believe university will be over in a matter of months.

So to combine a ‘Photo of the Week’ and begin the challenge of #febphotoaday I wanted to share with you my first photo- ‘your view today’ which has actually also been my view for the last month.

01.02.12

The challenge launched by @fatmumslim  over the iPhone application Instagram, the photo-sharing social network which allows its 15 million users to take photos, apply filters and effects to them and then share their shots with their Instagram followers, or on Twitter or Facebook.

February Photo A Day Challenge

Instagram’s popularity is set to soar as Windows7 is interest in offering the interactive platform, being developed for the latest android phones. For now the iPhone exclusivity is only one factor which makes the Instagram craze grow fast becoming the largest mobile social network.

Here is just one of my favourites to become my ‘Photo of the Week #3’… you can find other uploads by following me on Twitter @Danielle1610

 

Keep Calm and Scrabble On…

Finding little retro treasures always brightens my day, and these are the perfect flat warming gift especially if they can be personalised hand-made and recreated.

These little scrabble quote photography prints were the real inspiration, which are available from Etsy (another countless hours spent in this site) seller RetroLovePhotography for $15! Bargain!

When I stumbled across these frames, I was certain I could construct them with a little trip to Ikea later.

Such a simple design and so easy to make individual and bespoke

Don’t compromise on style when you want to have a little bit of fun. Brigitte Herron has designed these pictures using original scrabble pieces, which are on sale at www.rockettstgeorge.co.uk for £59.

A rhyme sung by my Mumma to me as a child! What a gorgeous nursery room wall image!

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine...

It’s so Lover.ly

I’m so excited to share this post and delighted to show you Lover.ly!

Thanks to my bookmarked bloggers I came across this site a couple of months ago and gratefully granted beta access to the database of gorgeous photography.

The moment I wake up…

Before I put on my make-up…

Finally a Sunday edition on a Sunday! As my favourite film is currently on TV, this Sunday is really becoming my perfect afternoon.

The Way You Look Tonight

In honour of the 1997 Julia Roberts classic “My Best Friend’s Wedding” I say a little pray for you… I wanted to bring you another of my wedding inspirations, one which I’ve been following for about 5 years and a true source of bridal beauty. Snippet and Ink’s blog has established itself as the ultimate daily blog for all things lovely.

Having fallen in love with Kathryn’s inspiration boards which continue to set and inspire my creativity with each tiny detail being of such a high standard. My only slight obsession for wedding photograph has grown with every ‘real wedding’ which has been posted over the years.

Snippet and Ink has become a part of wedding vocabulary and such lovely way to share great themes, stunning photography and so many stories from beautiful couples on their big days. http://www.snippetandink.com find a link on my featured blog roll on the left of Sixteen10’s home page.

Until next time, D x
