Fan Girl Friday #2

Hello Bright Ones, 

Well another weekend is upon us, what have you all got planned? Are you busy, busy & starting to get ready for the Christmas rush or are you enjoying a relaxing weekend at home? 

After being out all of last weekend, I had a fairly low key week which was nice because it’s been so cold & wet here. Spent a day catching up with family & having lunch out at a local pub & then the rest of the week was just hanging out colouring & playing at home with the boys & a little bit of housework thrown in. I’m looking forward to doing more of the same this weekend.

Anyway first up for this installment of Fan Girl Friday I’m highlighting a colourful character I stumbled upon quite a long time ago over on Instagram. 

1) MarkPitt3101

  

He plays along in a lot of photo challenges so I’m sure it was through one of them that I found his eclectic account. He is a dad of two & he’s that awesome, he let’s his daughter paint his toenails & they all enjoy coloured pancakes for breakfast on occasion. 

He takes great photos of his work on the railway (in black & white of course) because as per his hashtag #workstufflooksbetterinblackandwhite

I love seeing his drawings/doodles for those challenges he partakes in. He’s quite a talented artist & so many of his images have me going “wow” but my favorite is keeping up with his cute little creation “Simon the Goat” & you can follow his story & adventures under the hashtag #theadventuresofsimonthegoat

  

You should definately go & check out Mark’s gallery here as there’s really something for everyone. 

2) #Iamnotabigdeal & #instagramunedited {hashtags}

  

These hashtags are pretty new to Instagram but I just love the idea & message behind them. 

Sometimes it’s easy to get caught up looking at all the perfectly styled photos & the picture perfect lives portrayed over there & feeling a bit flat or down because your own life doesn’t seem as exciting or colourful, and your house doesnt look like it belongs in a magazine spread.

But remember most people only focus on the good & beautiful or as I like to say, their more “polished moments” Instagram is an escape & creative outlet for many so their pictures & captions will reflect that. But behind each square snapshot there is a real person, with real life struggles happening off camera just like you. 

These hashtags are trying to bring that side to light, to say hey, I’m not perfect & neither is my life, here’s what you don’t see from my posts & it’s really worth checking them out & having a read of everyone’s captions to see there’s so much more going on behind the scenes of what we see & that we’re all just doing the best we can.

Do you sometimes feel less than or envious of what you see on social media? Do you have your own hashtag series that I should check out? Are you following MessyRainbows over on Instagram? If not you totally should be & you can do that here or find me over on Facebook here

  1. Oh I love finding new accounts to follow on Instagram. Mark’s account looks ace and I love the idea of Instagram unedited, I love an account that keeps it real. Mostly, I follow dogs on Instagram the’re pawesome! (PS I made the exception to the dog rule though, because of course, I follow you too!)

    1. Yes his account is such a fun mix of photos & doodles & all the crazy that he has going on in his brain πŸ™‚ & thanks sooo much for making an exception for me, although I’m a pretty sweet, funny & cool chick most of the time, I can also be a little b*tch too, so it’s not that much of a stretch to your rule πŸ˜‰πŸ˜œ ha ha x
