Shoot: Instagram Diaries


Sometimes time gets away from me and I forget to blog. This is a little round of of what I’ve been doing lately, as told through Instagram, i.e. basically spending all my money on magazines and food.
1. I saw the The Grand Budapest Hotel this weekend. I watched an interview once where Wes Anderson was discussing how his films never really have a bad guy, more flawed characters, but he wanted to make one with a defined villain in the future. I’m guessing this was that film.
2. I couldn’t resist buying these issues of Real Living and Inside Out magazines. The covers were just too good to pass up. They’ve definitely helped fuel my current homewares obsession.
3. Autumn is slowly beginning to show itself so I’ve finally been able to wear this ASOS denim shirt that I bought last year. I do love a good denim shirt.
4. I managed to walk away without buying any cactus this time, which was out of character. I mean, look at those little guys!
5. You guys, this blueberry bagel I had at The Gunshop Cafe was probably one of the best breakfasts I have ever had. And that’s coming from someone who usually doesn’t do sweet breakfasts.
6. Also, this flourless chocolate cake from Little Pawpaw was pretty delicious. You can’t really go wrong with chocolate cake.

      I really liked it. I wasn't expecting the plot to be so dark (if you can call it that) but I never really have a bad word to say about Wes Anderson films. Loved the set design too.

    Ooh I went to see that film too recently, I love how different it is to most films nowadays. I found it was all created so artistically with the filming and actingxx

      I so agree. I love how Wes Anderson has such a defined aesthetic. His films are always a pleasure to watch. I could watch them over and over again just for the visual details alone.
