So last week I was tagged by the lovely Josie of Josie's Journal to do the 'I Heart Instagram' tag. Me and Instagram haven't been together long, but it is turining into quite the beautiful relationship...

So here it goes with the questions, I hope I don't bore you...

What's your Instagram handle?
I thought I would just keep it simple and use by blog name @fashionwelldone. With working for some fashion brands and blogs, I have other Instagram accounts that I help with, as well as more passwords to remember. So keeping it simple means I don't risk locking myself out.

How many accounts do you follow?
I'm still quite new to this Instagram thing so I only follow 206 accounts right now. So if you do have Instagram, please leave a link to it in the comments and I can stalk you, I mean follow you.

How many followers do you have?
I'm just a mere minnow in the Instagram world right now with 126 followers, but they are all so sweet to me, I wouldn't change them for 100,000 followers.

What are your favourite hashtags?
I don't have a dog of my own, so I have to make do with getting all misty eyed over pictures of other people's dogs, so #dogsofinstagram is a winning hashtag. I'm also a bit obsessed with knowing what other people are wearing so #wiwt #OOTD and #personalstyle are some of my other faves.

How often do you post?
Once a day at least, but since I still am a bit of a novice I don't know what I should be posting, any advice?

How often do you check your Instagram feed?
About 5 times a day, I don't want to miss anything - I may be a little bit nosy.

What is your favourite filter?
I quite like Mayfair, can hide a few imperfections with Mayfair - I actually resemble that house elf from the Harry Potter movies, but Mayfair makes it look like I have a working face.

Smartphone purist or rebel? 
I think I am a bit of a rebel, mainly because my smartphone is not that high end. I am due an upgrade, but EE make me angry with their pestering so I haven't got round to it.

Favourite 3 IG accounts?
I can't do that I love so many, but I am going to give a shout out to Paula from Thirteen Thoughts and Sophie from So Inspo, because they always leave super sweet comments.

I'm going to tag, the lovely Christina from Diaries of a Sunflower and my kindred spirit Keit from Beauty in Insanity.

Don't forget to leave me your Instagram links.

  1. I am an IG addict! I think it's ok to be a little nosy - most people are very nosy ;) xx

  2. I am unashamedly addicted to instagram!x

  3. I don't get this instagram thing, it seems boring to me, and confusing :D I still use it though, don't know why :D Yay, so happy you found me! Now I can stalk you everywhere *_*

  4. I don't have instagram yet - trying to avoid getting it as I know I'll get addicted.

  5. Aw yay, you did it! It took me a while to get into instagram but I'm totally addicted to it now! x

  6. I always smile when I see your IG posts Gems, from your awe-inspiring nail art to your pretty outfits! Not that I'm an IG expert myself (far from it, never knew how it worked until April), I would say you are most definitely posting all the right things because your pictures are always inspiring, gorgeous, uplifting and welcomed :) Keep posting whatever you want, and it can only be the right thing.

    I was never keen on IG, what was the point? Why would I need it when I had a blog and Twitter? I got an iPhone in April and now I do have it I don't even want to admit to how many times I check it a day... I think I need to get out more haha o.O I do love how it hurtles along at break-neck speed and you can discover so many other fashion blogs in an instant.

    Thank you so much for being so sweet and mentioning me! I'm so excited that you tagged Christina, I can't wait to read her answers! <3

  7. I'm such an IG geek lately, I never used to bother with it, but I love it now!

  8. This is such a fun tag to read Gems! I'm crazy obsessed with Instagram, it's honestly the only social media outlet that I'm constantly active on. I don't have a facebook account (only a facebook page for my blog) I'm not too big on Twitter (I find it a bit weird and awkward connecting to people there, Sophie is so good at it, I always look up to her in that aspect and try to mimic what she's doing haha ;) ) but Instagram I cannot live without :) I just love anything visual, looking at people, how different and beautiful they all are, and OMG the pictures of food, I mean come on who doesn't love looking at food :D

    I think your Instagram account is perfect Gems! Your photos are great, always good quality and OMG you look nothing like Dobby hahaha :D You're such a beauty both inside and out!

    Thank you so much for mentioning me, how sweet are you?? <3

  10. I don't use instagram as much as I should... infact I only take pictures for my blog but never think to upload to instagram haha..

    Just take pictures of everything you think is appealing to yourself, if you find it interesting... so will others.

    Love your silver nails, they look fantastic!

  11. nice post, I started instagram two mounth ago and I can't live without it now!!!

  12. I did create an Instagram account but never use it! Not sure why!! x

  13. I did create an Instagram account but never use it! Not sure why!! x

  14. Am just starting to get in the swing of Instagram

  15. Thanks sooo much for tagging me!! I love being tagged in things!! :D

    I love your instagram! I don't know why I hadn't followed it until recently. Sometimes I miss things on instagram like who's following me and who people are so I'm slow to follow!
    I'm obsessed with instagram. Seriously on it constantly *checks instagram* hehe :D
    Post whatever the heck you want on instagram! I like it because I can get a feel for who people are by what they post. And I hope that's what my instagram conveys too! <3


  16. Loved reading your answers :) I'm gonna follow you so I can stalk you :D and I agree I would rather have a small number of followers who are the sweetest people rather than thousands!
