LIFESTYLE | I Heart Instagram

@josiesjournal I heart instagram tag

So I was tagged by the lovely Little Miss Katy and while I don't usually do tags (as much as I love reading them!) I had to do this one because I am an Insta-addict. 

What's your Instagram handle? @josiesjournal, I've only just been able to change it to match my blog because someone else had it. They only posted two photos of a baby and left it unused for like a year which was beyond annoying haha!

How many accounts do you follow? 969 (I literally follow everyone, told you I was addicted!)

How many followers do you have? 565

What are your favourite hashtags? #OOTD #fbloggers #dogsofinstagram and #etsy. And #henrycavill.

What is your favourite genre of photo? Definitely outfit shots and anything fashiony, but I love interiors too. And obviously I appreciate a good puppy photo!

How often do you post? It depends but on average I'd say once or twice a day!

How often do you check your instagram feed? This is probably bad but about 10x a day at least! I did tell you I was addicted.

What's your favourite filter? I usually edit photos through vscocam now but I used to love Hudson!

Smartphone purist or rebel? Mainly a smartphone purist but if I'm promoting a post then I'll usually screen shot a photo from my blog. 

Your 3 favourite IG accounts:

Well I'm so going to cheat here and list a whole bunch because I cannot stop at 3!

theglowedit: Kate's insta is full of delicious brunches, beauty snippets and gorgeous parts of London (with a chihuahua thrown into the mix occasionally, which I do appreciate!) Check out her blog too, the photography is equally gorgeous!

lucywilliams02: I think you all know I'm a huge fan of Lucy's blog, Fashion Me Now and her insta is just as inspiring. Lots of fashion inspiration, beautiful scenery and yummy food (are you sensing a theme here?)

brittanybathgate: I WISH this lady had a blog! Her style is awesome and she gives me total hair envy. Her travelling pictures were amazing too.

coffeewithme: April's insta is interesting because she moved her blog solely to instagram which is something I'd never seen before. She's the Flatlay Queen and I find her simple style formula really inspiring (plus there are of course plenty of coffee shots!)

theformalshirtcompany: Ok, so it is my brother's menswear range but I still really like it! You may have seen me regram some of their stuff but give them a follow to see more and now the website's live you can check that out too here.

milkbubbleteablog: I'm almost certain you follow Becky's super cute blog but her insta is just as adorable! Everything is just so pretty, I love scrolling through her page on a miserable, rainy day.

willis_blogs: Because I am an unashamed fan girl of Daisy and I miss her blog but thankfully she updates her insta with her amazing outfits.

billyhuxley: Surely no explanation needed?

So there's my tag! I tag Rhiannon, SophieGemma & Hayley!

  3. I'm not as active on Instagram, but yeah....I'm loving the OOTDs over there.

  4. What an amazing tag Josie! I'm super obsessed with Instagram at the moment so I was really excited to see this post from you and even more thrilled that you tagged me, thanks ever so much lovely <3

    I can't believe those people with the baby! That must have been so annoying haha o.O
    Thank goodness you managed to get your proper name in the end, and quite rightly so! ;)
    I love the #OOTD & #fblogger tags too, it's amazing how quickly you can find so many new blogs and discover so many looks at lightening speed. Before I got an iPhone I never really understood the fuss over Instagram, but now I have it, it's all become crystal clear!

  5. I just confessed on my latest post that I'm insta addicted too. Maybe we need to check in to an Instagram rehab? I get so annoyed if I check in and there has only been 2 or 3 new photos uploaded since the last time I checked in - DON'T PEOPLE KNOW I HAVE FINGERS THAT NEED TO CLICK THE LIKE BUTTON?!

  6. I love that #henrycavill is one of your fave hashtags! ;)
