INSTA-JAM // farewell 2019


Not only is it the end of 2019 but we are also closing off the decade and saying farewell to the 2010s. For many of us it has been a big year with changes, decisions and some turmoil. This uneasy environment has been playing out on the world stage, especially in politics and climate change issues. We still have to focus on the beauty of life and here are the monthly highlights from my Instagram that I hope will reflect some positive vibes. In Australia it’s very tough at the moment with the summer heatwave creating a bushfire crisis. Growing up beside a national park and experiencing this many times first hand, I know what a tough and stressful situation it is to live through. My thoughts go out to all the people affected and in particular the brave firefighters defending homes and protecting lives. I’m using my Christmas wishes for the fires to end soon, bring plenty of rain, safe holidays for everyone and a better start to 2020.

INSTA-JAM // 2018 flew


Usually I post a visual diary and show a snapshot from each month at the end of the year, but 2018 flew by and before you know it we’re at the end of January 2019. It’s a little late but here are some highlights from my Instagram that I hope you enjoy and feel free to browse my feed. I have to say that I used to be much more consistent and I think we all go through that social media fatigue at some stage. It is still a great medium to express yourself and connect with people but I’m taking Marie Kondo’s ‘KonMari’ approach – only if it sparks joy!

INSTA-JAM // sending off 2017


I admit I have been slack and absent from social media in 2017 but it has been a huge year! It’s been great but extremely hectic on all fronts (home, family and work) so I’m definitely needing a well earned rest. It will be a short break as 2018 is gearing up to be a time with lots of changes coming, which is exciting. Here’s a few highlights from my Instagram that I shared (albeit sporadically). I hope you have all had a good year and the upcoming one is even better. Happy holidays!

I know it’s like wishing time away but I think we all agree that 2016 has been a very interesting year that has been punctuated by loss and turmoil. Now that the end of the year is counting down, I’m looking forward to a new year of hope and beauty. I’m sharing some moments from my Instagram as a reminder of brighter times and moving into the future. Wishing you all a peaceful, fun holiday break and may 2017 shine!

INSTA-JAM // goodbye 2015

I can’t believe that 2015 is coming to a close, so I wanted to share some highlights from my Instagram as a visual diary. I know we all say it every year but this year has passed quickly, so it’s nice to select an image from each month to recap what I did. While it’s nice to look back and reflect I do like the exciting possibilities and fresh start of a new year. Bring it on 2016!

As we head towards the end of 2014 I wanted to share some favourite moments from my Instagram as a visual diary of the year. I do love how this form of social media connects us by sharing our lives – but also how people experiment and play with their images (even if they thought they weren’t creative!). I don’t post personal photos as it’s not really my style, so it’s just what inspires me visually and reflects my interests. Here is a selection from each month that captures all the things I enjoy and snapshots of my everyday life. Now I’m looking forward to seeing what 2015 will look like…
