As some of you would know, I’m a little bit in love with Instagram.
For those of you not familiar with Instagram, it’s a fun way to share photos from your iPhone with a wider social network. It also has great photo filters, like buttons and commenting to make it interactive. Here are a few of my fave pics from the couple of months.

Warning… Instagram is addictive!
Wow! It’s May already. It’s come around so fast. We’re nearly half way through the year. Time to update my wall calendar.
For a couple of years now, I’ve created my own using kikki.K’s DIY Calendar
You can use snaps of your own, family and friends, or use it as a mini mood board for the month.
This month I’ve got one of the shots from the sass & bide papa sucre look book. And a quote I picked for the month:
“A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort!” – Herm Albright
What’s your mantra for May?
I’ve just set a challenge to my followers and friends on Twitter – a whole week of positive tweets!
Starting tomorrow, Saturday 15 May to the following Saturday we can only write positive tweets.
Sounds easy, but it’s not. So many of us (including me) use Twitter as an outlet for our frustrations, to bitch, whinge and whine. My proposal is that we all have a positive attitude for the week. This doesn’t mean we can’t vent still, it just means we put a positive spin on it. Some of the tweeps who have joined the challenge have already labeled it “Disney week” and the “Shamwow of sarcasm” (thanks @idmacman). Haha!
Are you in? If so, challenge yourself, join in and spread the word. Hashtag is: #positivetweetsweek [Alternative hashtag: #ptw 15 May]
PS. Don’t stress if you don’t make it through the week. Shit happens. It’s the desire to try that counts, and the laughs we’ll have along the way.
Follow me on Twitter: @houseofturtle to see how we’re tracking.
Update 17 May: I have created a list on Twitter of those involved in our challenge. Follow the list to see who’s coping and who isn’t: http://twitter.com/houseofturtle/positivetweeps
This is one of my absolute fave pics. It was taken a few (or more) years ago for Sarina’s 21st. The theme was Alice in Wonderland, so Ange and I went as Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee (obviously)… So much fun wearing a fat suit!
