Recreating Bloggers Instagram Photos #2

If you want to know what this is all about, then check out the first part! During my absence on the internet the past week, I realized that what I missed the most was all my blogging friends. I missed reading your posts, commenting on what’s going on, and just interacting with you guys basically.

This ramble led me to wanting to do a second part of this series. Recreating bloggers instagram photos! This time, I focused on detail photos. They’re a lot of fun to do and I love seeing the creativity everyone has with them. That being said, here’s my recreations!

Siyana Online

I’ve been following Siyana since forever, both on her blog and Instagram. Her feed is so beautiful to look at, from all the places she’s been lucky enough to visit, to detail pictures like this. I saw her Feline Fine shirt, and remembered that I recently bought a kitty inspired shirt of my own.

recreation 01

All my three objects are different colours, but I think it still works. The main thing that I realized when getting the bits ready for  this photo is that I don’t have a traditional lipstick. I mostly have liquid lipsticks. This Clinique Pop lipstick is the only one I have lol.

Vintage Tea Rose

Sarah has been a blogging bestie for ages now. If you read this Sarah, you were one of the ones who I was feeling nosy about during my week of absence. Anyway, I was scrolling through her feed when I came across this photo. I love mugs and all the things they can say. That being said, I would love to be in a hot tub right now, it’s freezing.

recreation 02

I had to swap the hands around for this photo as I can use my right hand better. My nails weren’t painted pretty, but they’re neat so that’s good. Look how grey it is outside. Ugh. I’m over winter. But anyway, I love how this photo looks!

Ugh Mango

Jasmin has an amazing eye for details! All her photos on her feed are just stunning, whether it’s details, food or outfit, it’s always so aesthetically pleasing. I liked this one with the minimalistic colours, just black and gold. I wasn’t sure if I could recreate this exactly, but I wanted to try!

recreation 03

So I apparently don’t own a purse. I do have a long brown wallet, but I liked the look better with black. I’m using my kindle lol. Also, I don’t own a white sheet of any kind. Anyways, I feel like I caught the spirit of the photo fairly close, maybe just off the mark a little.

I had a lot of fun putting these together as always.

Recreating Bloggers Instagram Photos

Anni recently did a post where she recreated bloggers Instagram photos, and it was awesome! I was inspired to try do my own recreations of fellow bloggers’ photos.

Don’t Give a Jam

jamie

If you guys don’t know Jamie, she’s an amazing blogger! I always look forward to reading her posts and seeing what she gets up to. I am a fan of her selfies, and decided to try recreate one of her older ones. I had fun trying to match up the clothes and makeup, but my hair would not co-operate in the same way.

recreation 01

Jamie, if you read this, your selfie game is on another level! All in all though, I feel like I captured the essence of the photo, so I’m still happy with this recreation!

Earth of Maria (In Accordance)

maria

Maria‘s Instagram feed is just so aesthetically pleasing, as is her whole blog really. If you guys don’t know Maria, you should really check her out! I knew I couldn’t recreate any of her amazing food photos, so I decided on another selfie-esque shot. I didn’t have any fresh flowers, but I do have lots of fake flowers that I could use as a prop.

recreation 02

I had fun trying to match up the clothes and gestures. I’m pretty happy with how this recreation looked in the end! I wish I had more colourful flowers, but I made do with what I have.

Gluecksgeist

anni

Finally, I had to try copy one of Anni’s photos! She is so creative with her photography and I always love to see what she’ll share with us next. There were so many photos I wanted to try recreate, but I realized that I have almost no graphic print tees while Anni has heaps!  I landed on this one as I also had lots of polaroids. I don’t have anything yellow however, so I grabbed my pastel pink sweater.

recreation 03

This was a lot harder to co-ordinate as I just use my tripod, but I think it came out alright! This was definitely a lot of fun to do though, so thanks for the inspiration Anni! I’d be keen to try some more down the line!

Let me know which recreation was your favourite!

Have You Met Georgia?

Let’s get back into it!

Haaaaaaaaaaaaave you met Georgia?

Georgia blogs over at Midnight Madness. She writes about fashion, beauty, travel, lifestyle, health/fitness and so much more! She really is a Girl Boss!

Here’s a snippet from Georgia’s About Me page:

This blog is a place for me to to collect my thoughts and document my memories. Also, it’s a place where I get to write about all the things I’m passionate about, such as fashion, beauty, self-improvement, success and happiness. Although my blog is mainly lifestyle, I also love to rant about all the super exciting travelling that I do, literally every time I get a chance. Hope you enjoy reading as much as I love writing about it.

I’ve always been super into writing and very outspoken so not too long ago I decided it’d be interesting to rant about life to strangers on the internet, in hopes that I can motivate and help others as much as I can.

I’ve been following Georgia for ages, she is such an inspiration

Here are some of my favourite posts of hers:

img_6635-e1521576497987.jpg

The first coffee catch up post I remember reading on WordPress was from Georgia! These are my favourite lifestyle posts to read as it’s nice to just catch up with what’s been going on lately.

Georgia often shares blogging and writing tips, and this is one of my favourites. She talks about four questions that you want to ask yourself before publishing a post.

IMG_6462.JPG

I love travel posts in general, let me just say that right off the bat. In this post, Georgia takes us around the Grove in L.A!

DSC_0815.JPG

I’m someone who loves to buy notebooks. I’m sure a lot of us are. Georgia shares lots of ideas to fill up any notebooks you may have lying around!

DSC_0145

Georgia shares three different outfits in this post. All in preparation for the change of season. I definitely recommend checking out her other outfits in the post as well!

I really recommend checking out Georgia’s blog if you haven’t already! She writes such an array of creative and inspiring posts!

Have You Met Elena?

Introducing another lovely blogger friend…

Haaaaaaaaaaaaaave you met Elena?

DSC04197

Elena blogs over at Out’n’About. She’s from Switzerland, but is currently on an overseas exchange programme in Canada. She blogs about her art, travel, photography and so much more!

DSC05080

Here are Elena’s own words about her blog:

I launched OUT N’ ABOUT January 1st, 2017 to use it as my creative space. My goal here is to share my love for art, literature and travel, as well as creating discussions about society, philosophy and whatever else crosses my mind!

Blogging is still something I am experimenting with, there will always be things to learn and figure out, but most importantly, it is something I absolutely enjoy doing! Hopefully I could have caught your interest and brim over some of my enthusiasm through this blog!

I’ve been following Elena since early in my days of blogging, I remember when she announced she was heading off to Canada! She’s always been so lovely and supportive, and I always love to read about what she gets up to!

Here are some of my favourite posts of hers:

DSC06185o

Elena often shares some through-provoking posts, and this is one of my favourites. She shares her thoughts on responsibilities as a girl (and human) about feminism and equality. You should definitely give it a read, as I can’t give it enough justice!

DSC06287

Elena has shared her photography with us on numerous occasions, and I really liked this one! On a recent cold trip to the frozen river, Elena snapped away and got some amazing shots like the one above.

DSC05788

Another thought piece that is very relevant to all of us. Social media. We often showcase the best side of ourselves online, keeping some of the more not so picturesque moments to ourselves. I really enjoyed reading Elena’s thoughts about this, and she really brings up some great points.

DSC05593

The title says it all really. Elena was lucky enough to go dog sledding, and shares with us all, her adventure!

DSC05048

Another photo series that I really loved! Elena edited her photos in a very unique way, focusing on the negative colours. They came out quite striking and different. I love how Elena is always experimenting with her photography!

I hope you guys do check out Elena’s blog! All of these posts I mentioned are amazing, but they’re just a small section of what you can find on Out’n’About!

Have You Met Kate?

I’m sure lots of you guys already know this lovely lady.

Haaaaaaaaaave you met Kate?

Kate blogs over on Ankhor You. She’s been blogging on and off since 2012 which is incredible! She blogs about travel, fashion, self-love and writing. She’s also a coffee addict, and a self-declared mermaid. She’s awesome!

I’ve been following Kate since the early days of my blog. We’ve begun talking even more recently, and I always love hearing from her! She’s so positive and supportive, and it’s always a joy to read her blog!

Here are some of my favourite posts of hers:

I always love Kate’s OOTD posts. First off the titles are always catchy! She also takes the most fun outfit photos. Look at the above image! I could never do such a cool pose. This post is all about this gorgeous navy blue dress with florals for the upcoming spring season.

Kate’s travel series is always fun to read. I love seeing where she goes to! This time she visited Folly’s Island and saw the Morris Light Lighthouse. What makes this even more impressive is that she visited at sunrise, hence the extra magical photos!

I love coffee, but I feel like Kate loves it just a little more! She often has little reviews of places she’s had coffee. In this post, she shares a few places in Charleston that has good coffee and interesting history!

Kate loves hiking, and just because the weather gets colder, doesn’t slow her down! In this post, she shares tips to help make hiking in winter that little bit easier.

I always love posts where we get to learn a little more about what’s going on lately. Kate talks about experiencing the winter blues, and how she’s working towards moving past them and indulging in some self care. Something I think we can all relate to.

So, have you guys checked out Kate yet??

Have You Met Dannii?

Let’s just dive right in!

Haaaaaaaave you met Dannii?

Dannii blogs over at A Beautiful Thing. She’s based in the UK and blogs about travel, beauty, fashion, food, life and everything in between! You’re bound to find something you’ll love! She is always off on and writing about an adventure, and it’s so much fun to come along with her!

No automatic alt text available.

“I’m a London girl writing about beauty, fashion, travel and things I just love!”

Dannii and I have been following each other since pretty much the beginning of my blog. She even gave me advice on one of my earliest posts when I was fretting about getting my first tattoo (as you may know, I now have three!). She is so lovely and supportive, and I’m always keen to see what she’ll write next!

Here are some of my favourite blog posts of hers:

Recapping how Dannii and her partner spent Valentine’s together. Just a chill night, cooking dinner together, and also cupcakes!

A running series on Dannii’s blog is sharing her favourite photos from the past month. This was the inspiration for my new monthly series on photos!

Dannii often posts revies on beauty products, and a recurring one that comes up is on sheet masks, which she often tries. This one caught my eye, as they’re all just so weird!  For each mask, Dannii shares what it promises to do, why it’s unusual, how she found it and how well it works. Also, all the pictures are amazing.

I loved reading everyone’s posts about how 2017 went down, and Dannii’s was no different. However, I will forever be envious of her trip to Iceland!!

As promised, Dannii shares all her travel adventures with her followers. One of her more recent ones was to Norway!

So, have you guys checked out Dannii yet??

Have You Met Olivia?

Another have you met feature! This time,

Haaaaaaaaaave you met Olivia?

2018-01-03 02.55.14 2.jpg

Olivia blogs over at Absolutely Olivia. She’s based in the US, and blogs about a mixture of fashion, beauty, thoughts, photography and so much more! She is definitely a fashionista in the making, and such a thoughtful and incredible person!

Olivia

Here’s a snippet from her About page:

Hi, I’m Olivia and I feel the best when I look the best!  When I was younger, I hated dressing up and wore athletic clothes the majority of the time.  It wasn’t until a few years ago that I began to step up my clothing game.  Now, one of my goals is to work in the fashion industry and own a closet that goes on forever!

Like with many bloggers I’ve been following for ages, I don’t remember who came across who first. I have always loved Olivia’s blog though! She puts so much work into her posts, whether it’s an Outfit post, a thought-provoking post or a fun ‘get to know me’ post!

Speaking of, here are some of my favourite posts of hers:

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Olivia has a lot of outfit posts under her belt. I always love seeing what she puts together. In this post, she shares 20 of her best outfits from last year. Needless to say, there’s lots of fashion inspiration in this post!

Last year, Olivia wrote her 17 goals for 2017 and updated us on how she went with it. In this post, she shares her 18 goals for this year. She was actually the inspiration for me to make my yearly goals this year! I’ve also picked 18!!

I love Day in the Life posts! It’s just cool to see what goes in a regular day for my blogging friends. Reading Olivia’s posts about being in school definitely makes me feel old (lol), but it’s very interesting to see how she spends a typical day!

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Olivia recently did a 30 Day Styling Challenge. In her words “These ootds won’t be your normal, everyday looks, but something a little more extra than that.” And she definitely delivered. This is her wrap up post where she shares the last outfits as well as her favourites!

Olivia did a collab with Cal, where they wanted to gather photos and little messages from fellow friends who identify as feminists. The goal is to show that a feminist can be “anyone and everyone”. Olivia shares 15 of the submissions, and it is such an incredible read!

So, have you guys checked out Olivia yet??

Have You Met Cleia?

Hey guys, I wanna introduce you to another amazing blogger. You may know her already. But…

Haaaaaaaave you met Cleia?

Too Faced Peachy Matte Smokey

Cleia blogs over at Always Cleia. She is based in Canada, and a proud cat mom. She blogs primarily about lifestyle and beauty.

wp-1511253338709..jpg

Here’s her own words about her blog:

Hi, I’m Cleia! Welcome to my beauty + lifestyle blog. I created Always, Cleia 2+ years ago to share my passion for makeup and subscription boxes with the world and I don’t plan on slowing down anytime soon.

I don’t remember who found who first. But we’ve been following each other for a while! Cleia is always so nice and lovely, and we have been bonding over Peru! Cleia and Mike (her partner) recently went for a holiday, and I went a few years ago (and still talk about!).

Here’s some of my favourite posts of hers:

wp-1505805511835.

As someone who’s started getting into beauty posts herself, this was a really fun post to read! I especially agree on adapting the strange habit of storing empty containers and products so I can write an empties post. Good old blogging!

wp-1506057767167.

A series Cleia has is on sharing her makeup drawer. She’s done quite a few now, but I’m always interested in seeing what brushes people use.

Hacienda San Jose

I enjoyed reading the whole series of Cleia’s Peru travels! I’m starting off sharing the first so  you guys can go read all of them from the beginning! Peru is such a beautiful place to visit.

ColourPop Ultra Matte Lips

Cleia shares with us her goals for this year. She shares blogging, makeup, financial, health and personal goals. I’m always interested in reading about goals, as it gives me my own ideas for the blog and also, I like to cheer people on!

Night Glam Makeup

This is one of the latest makeup looks Cleia has shared with us. She’s doing a January Instagram Challenge, and shares with us this glam look. Needless to say, she nailed it!

So, have you guys gone over and checked out Cleia’s blog yet?

Also, just a reminder to feel free to leave me any questions which I’ll answer in my Q’n’A when I reach my next milestone! 🙂

Have You Met Maria?

It’s been too long since I’ve typed those words. So, without further ado…

Haaaaaaaave you met Maria?

How to enjoy working out

Maria blogs over at What is Maria. An amazing blog name, for an even more amazing person. She is 18. Russian born, and based in Brighton, England. She blogs about food, fitness, self-development, productivity and well-ness.

21845796_2037355973167635_1033097735_o.jpg

Here’s a snippet from her About page:

Aside from being a history nerd and having a passion for making bad jokes, I have always aspired to bring value into the world by helping others live a healthy, productive life. True wellbeing encompasses much more than what you put in your body or what you do in the gym (although, those are undoubtedly very important): it has much to do with how you view yourself and those around you, the habits you establish and the attitude with which you undertake your daily pursuits.

I believe Maria found me first. I remember getting a comment from her, and she seemed so lovely and confident. So of course, I went over to her blog, and I never left. Maria’s blog is filled with so much advice, positivity, beautiful pictures, and food!! So much incredible food! She shares her vegan creations with us, and her food photography skills are insane! I recently found her food Instagram, and I couldn’t stop scrolling through all the pictures.

As always, I would like to share some of my favourite posts from Maria.

How to be a morning person

Morning people seem to be in the minority. You often hear about people who find it hard to wake up early, preferring to sleep in past 9. Maria shares about how she’s changed to be a morning person, and offers tips to those who may be struggling with it. Obviously though, not everyone has to be a morning person, but if you’re wanting to give it a go, this is a good post to read!

How to make oatmeal

As I said, Maria is incredible skilled in taking photos of food! She also comes up with recipes that she shares with us. This post is all about oatmeals, and the array of amazing toppings you can put on it. Fresh fruit is always a good idea!

Vegan salad recipe

Yes, another food post. I told myself to select a range of posts from Maria’s blog, but I had to include another food one. They’re amazing. This time, Maria shares a selection of party foods you can bring. Just look at how she cut those oranges!

Internet detox

The internet can be a fabulous place, but it can also eat up a lot of your time. Take it from someone who blogs everyday, and watches a lot of YouTube. It takes up a LOT of my time. It’s good to take a step back sometimes. If you’re looking for reasons why this is a good thing, click on the link!

Workout tips

Another topic Maria often talks about is fitness. As someone who always lacks motivation, reading these kinds of posts can really inspire me to get back into working out. Even if it’s just a little, even if it’s light. Maria shares lots of insights to ease that dread of exercise!

So, have I convinced you guys to check out Maria yet?
