August on Instagram & a Surprise Trip!

Instagram in August (@curlsnchard) | curlsnchard.com

I haven’t done a recap on Instagram for a while. When I started blogging, I used to do them every week, but kind of got tired of it and felt no one cared anyway. πŸ˜‰ By now I figured I could start doing them monthly again, featuring the most loved/interesting things that were going on and probably combining it with a little bit of general talk too. Okay? And well, if you want to know what the deal is with the above mentioned surprise trip, keep on reading!

Most of the time, my Instagram pictures are on the light/white/bright side. I do know, that dark and moody pictures are all the rage. Those really dark pictures, they are just not for me. They make me depressed – sorry. What did happen though was, that I kind of got bored with the white only pictures, so I decided to switch it up and loosely alternate between white background and colorful or wooden ones. Did you notice that? Probably only if you had a look at my whole profile. It’s really fun and gives me a chanceΒ to mix things up. Look at those white pictures below – I honestly personally love all of them, and they all have reached way above average likes and engagement:

They are somewhat dreamy, and even though they are so light, to me they feel cozy. Kind of like having breakfast in bed. But, those darker pictures are really fun too – and especially the first one was CRAZY popular. Like, about double the amount of likes and engagement that I typically get. I guess everyone was digging my pajama pants! πŸ˜€ Joke aside, what do you actually prefer? Light and airy, darker and a bit more moody? I can’t make up my mind, so I might just keep changing it up!

And for the second part of the title – I’m going on a surprise trip! Well, when you will read this, I will be there already, and if you follow me on Instagram (@curlsnchard) and/or Snapchat (curlsnchard) you will know this already. πŸ˜‰ Just a short while ago I wrote about a little bit of a nostalgic post about my summer trips to CroatiaΒ when I was younger. Guess what, I’m going to CroatiaΒ again! My parents actually had planned on going there and some vacation day planning didn’t work out, so my Mum now can’t come anymore. Instead, I’m going with my Dad and a friend of mine. I will keep you updated on Instagram and Snapchat, so make sure to follow me there! πŸ™‚ Aaaand, I think I might be doing one or two travel posts from Medulin and probably also about Pula.

    1. Thank you so much, Katie! I actually just used Picmonkey to create a collage and first looked through my pictures on Iconosquare to see which ones were the most popular πŸ™‚

    1. Dark and moody is all the rage right now πŸ˜€ Although I feel like it’s more balanced again in contrast to like 6 months ago when it seemed everyone was doing dark pictures πŸ™‚ I’m glad I’m not the only one liking the lighter ones!

  1. I love your light and bright pics! Shadowy pics aren’t my thing either, but I’m loving the occasional wood background ones too πŸ™‚ So many fun trips coming up! I saw your beach breakfast pic and was a little jealous, have fun girl πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Natalie! I’m trying to keep a bit of variety, as it will be also “easier” for the people who follow me on IG when I change the background. Then it’s not such a shock for them, when all of a sudden it’s different πŸ˜‰ I really enjoyed my trip to Croatia, it was so much fun!

  2. I love your white and bright instagrams, Kat. I’m more drawn to the darks lately because I love the vibrant colors you can get with that lighting — but it wasn’t an intentional decision, just sorta keeps working out that way πŸ™‚ When I try white, I’m out of my element… I keep missing you on IG though lately, so the monthly recaps are great for me <3

    1. I guess I’m just posting at times when you are not yet awake – and by the time you check your IG I’m buried far down your feed πŸ˜‰ What timezone are you in? I’m glad you enjoy my light ones too – I love your dark pictures actually, but I honestly can’t do them. When I try, it never looks good πŸ˜€ So for me, the kind of dark pictures you take are completely out of my element!
