  • INSTAGRAMMING #1



    I’ve seen a few other bloggers do a weekly recap of their Instagram photos, and I thought it might be kind of fun to make it a feature here on my blog. Here’s what I got up to this week…

    My first Instagram video is a quickie snippet of my daily life. If you didn’t know, I am a metalsmith and have my own jewellery business called Bella-Bijou Jewellery.

    And finally, and the most exciting of all the Instagram posts this week for me – I hopped on the scale exactly a year to the date from me trying to lose weight, and hit the -25lb mark. Booyah!

    Are you on Instagram? Are you as addicted to it as I am?
