KITSTAGRAM: NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2013
I've decided to try a new series to see what you guys think. I'll do it about once a month, and I'm going to call it Kitstagram. I'll share my favourite Instagram pictures (from my own account), and talk about where, when, how and why they were taken.
Let me know in the comments section if you do/not want to see this as a regular feature.
This one I feel is pretty self-explanatory, but there's a bit of an ongoing story with it. This is our Christmas tree, beautifully decorated.
After the kids came home and saw it, I told them that I would throw away any ornament that they willingly removed from the tree.
We are now down to 2 ornaments and a string of tinsel.
This was taken post-walk-with-friends at Frankston, at the bottom of Oliver's Hill where the little jetty is.
The water was so still and lovely that I felt the need to capture it.
Taken at Sweetwater Creek walking trail. A group of friends and I went walking (as we do, because we all like to exercise regularly, and doing it as a group helps keep us motivated).
The plant is Nasturtium, and it covered the entire "wall" of the path we were walking down. Note the random yellow and orange flowers, which will be more plentiful as summer progresses, and are completely edible.
A rare addition to my public instagram, a picture of my boys. Josh is the older one, he's 9, and Max is the little guy, 3.
They love the beach, and play in the water no matter how cool it is.
This day, they made a huge sandcastle. It was a pretty awesome day.
My strange addiction: Nail Polish.
This is a little under half of my nail polish collection. I just love it and I can't really explain why or how I have so many.
Nail art is a fun hobby of mine.
A proud moment.
My first month on YouTube with the new channel. 1,520 views on the few videos I had up.
I'm really excited about the growth of the new channel.
Trying something new.
Montagne Jeunesse sent me their new 2 step masks to try, and the anti-breakout one is awesome.
Stay tuned for a review in the next week or so.
A big surprise.
Sukin sent me a beautifully wrapped christmas gift, the contents of which, I will share with you in my "what I got for Christmas" video.
My fake naked3 palette arrived, and I created a look from the colours in it for a dinner on Saturday night.
This is the look that I'm wearing in my Faked3 video, my beauty talk tag video, and my random favourites#1 video.
My biggest achievement since I broke my ankle.
We walked 6.4km on the gravel tracks in Mornington, and in the middle of that, we did the dreaded Birdrock climb, a set of approximately 200 steps (set just-a-little-too-close-together) to get down to the beach, and a track with a 45.7% gradient to get back up.
My leg is aching 3 days later, so I think I overdid it a little bit, but I felt good about getting a decent training session in.
Birdrock was my before-Christmas goal for the leg, so I'm really happy.
