Morning ladies, well today I want to talk about Instagram, FatMumSlim & the #PhotoadayJune Challenge .

I am still very much loving Instagram, indeed it’s one of my favourite places to hang out and it’s one of my favourite places to just snap and hit go for photography.

The last month or so though I seriously fell off the Photoaday Challenge (instagram challenge june 2012)

 from the lovely Chantelle, at this blog….not sure why, but off it I fell.

This month though I am back to join the lovely Chantelle Ellem and a billion others for photoadayjune with the photography prompts so well thought out and ready & waiting for me.

 But here for today, below are just some of my Instagrams lately…

and the reason I love it here in this new seachange to a life Down Under

 errrm warning : lots of beaches, lots of stripes…and shoes…

 views from a bush walk


and a  lil’ soak in here with bath salts…


walking, with these views…


stripes…the skirt kind..and ballet flats


empty beaches Autumn style


flower sun…yes please!


new blues shoes?  yep, I can do some of those


some cloud love…


it’s time for stripes…especially the sock kind…


 oh to the blues of Autumn


Here are the daily challenges for photoadayjune for this next month…and below how to join in…



instagram challenge june 2012

INSTAGRAM: Upload your photo to Instagram, add a sweet filter and put #photoadayJune in the caption so others can see your photos {share to Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Flickr etc from Instagram if you like}

TWITTER: Upload your photo to Instagram, add some words to describe it and use the hashtag #photoadayJune so others can see your photos

FACEBOOK: Create an album titled something like, Photo a Day June, and make the album public, then upload your photos. It’s a good idea to upload the list too so you can refer to it and others can see what you’re doing. You can also share your photos on the Fat Mum Slim Facebook page.

PINTEREST: Upload your photos to a board, and use the hashtag#photoadayJune so that others can search for them.

BLOGS & TUMBLR: Upload your photos to your blog or Tumblr and share with the world.

FLICKR: Share your photos in the Photo a day group.

 This challenge is a great way to prompt you to just get out there and snap your life & all that goes on or sometimes very much does not go on in it

…but simply celebrating you, your life and living it…

….recently it has been said that Instagramming the heck out of your life might be, rather, you know, a bit, large in the old ego department

what say I to that?

I say


I say


I say


I say



take photos



who you are


what you are doing

I say



and while you are at it

I’ll be doing the same

over here

on the beaches

lovin’ it






p.s. I am abeachottage on instagram, I’d love to catch up with you over there or follow me here 

the tag for instagram is #photoadayjune

you can find more photoaday from the beaches here

    I’m just patting myself on the back the past couple of weeks that I managed to take a photo on my phone of my new grandson and turn it into the wallpaper? screensaver?? whatever!! Will have to build up to Instagram.

    BTW Sarah, do bath salts really work?


  3. I love the photo of the flower sun. I will be doing the June challenge, and have already posted a photo of a sleepy boy playing in his bed this morning. My name is alannahshore. I will start following you. smiles and have a fabulous day.

  4. Beth says:

    Good morning Sarah, I’m loving my newly discovered instagram thingammy whatsit on my phone – it does such fab things with my okay photos and can turn them into masterpieces (wel, that’s my opinion anyway!) I’ve already found you there and am a follower (awelshgirl). Going to pop over to Fatmumslim and get on with the June challenge, so thanks for this.
    Have a good Friday.

    i fell of the band wagon in may too, made it to day 15, i think. But back on for June. i blogged on it too. Started well, I’ve done day one! good luck for june, i’ll be following you too. @shellnel x

  6. Selby says:

    Ok you’ve sold me – ill buy in:)

    Off to check out instagram& try to get over my intense fear people would hate what I post… As if it matters if they do?! Reminding myself its the ones who get it I need to keep- not the rest.

    Thanks for the inspire :)

  7. Mummaducka says:

    I looove instagramming , and I don’t care if it is egotistical, I don’t say look at me, find me, so what? Do people say the same thing about facebook photos. What’s the problem? i do it for me! I’m going to have another go at the photoaday after being hopeless in April and may. IG is just another social thing and I am a joiner and enjoyer, just as I would any social gathering!

  8. Neen says:

    FLOWER SUN…….FLOWER SUN……..FLOWER SUN…..ooooh how I love thee. Thankyou Sarah :)

  9. Nicola says:

    I started this in April and managed about 5 days! You have inspired me to start again! Hopefully this time I can follow through the whole month! Lifeonorchardroad :)

  10. Kirsty says:

    I fell off the bandwagon in May too. Day 3 to be precise :(
    I’m attempting June’s and determined to get to the end this time! I’ll definitely be following along with you Sarah. Your photo’s are always just gorgeous :)

  11. Michelle says:

    I couldn’t agree with you more Sarah….I love instagram so much and am doing my first photoaday challenge and loving it…….what better way to just share a part of your day with people…..take care xo

  12. Oh my I so have to figure out the whole Instagram thing. Looks like so much fun. Love the pictures you shared and may I just add, I am in love with your pretty blue ballet flats. So gorgeous!

  13. Thanks, Sarah. Great idea! I think I may give this a try for June. I like the themes. It sounds like fun. I’m not sure how far to take it – one or both blogs, FB, Pinterest? Maybe I’ll just get started on one blog, and see if I want to share some on the other one too.

  14. I am one of those people who just loves to look at the photos taken by other people.
    I am content with family photos, my own photos or a day at a museum with a photo exhibit.
    Life Magazine would make my day :)
    I have had a camera since I was a small child, my family liked recording every move we made, so I feel comfortable with my camera and it goes everywhere with me.
    I share but not too much, not too personal on the web but it is a huge world, there are plenty of things waiting to have their picture taken :)
    besitos, C ,

  15. ps .. I am on Tumblr where posting your photos is the easiest thing in the world and a good way to keep them together and “protected” ..
