I heart Instagram!

Like many other avid social networkers and bloggers, I am a huge fan of the natty little app that is Instagram. I would go as far as saying I have an obsession with this clever technological gizmo which means I am one of those people who documents, well, basically EVERYTHING!

Despite the fact I am a complete over-sharer, as I'm a teacher, I do have my Instagram account (and personal Facebook page) set to private. However, I do love the fact that having Instagram on my phone reminds me to capture life's special little moments, whether they involve family, friends or a particularly delicious lunch.

A distinct downside to digital photography is the lack of photos I have in print and therefore on display. It was with this in mind that I took advantage of a special offer with a company called Polargram which meant I got 48 Instagram prints delivered for just under £8 with free postage - thanks for the tip-off, lovely friend, Hannah! They're really good quality and mimic the Polaroid style. This is not a sponsored post by the way; I was genuinely impressed with the quality, service and price.

A quick browse of Pinterest generated some display ideas and I was particularly taken with the idea of displaying the prints in the shape of a heart; it seemed to fit my ethos for using Instagram in the first place. In the spirit of personalising the new-build box, there can surely be no quicker way of feeling at home than to display favourite photographs.

It's up on the playroom wall. I'll admit to having some help with the straightness and symmetry from Mr W, but we're both quite pleased with the results. I have thus far resisted the temptation to Instagram my Instagram - how very meta!
