My #2016bestnine On Instagram

Top Row: Left – Right 

Let’s grab a cuppa. Honestly, I wish I have done this coffee cup pics a lot sooner! I am so missing the big picture here. I was introducing our #FabFridayPost linky into the Instagram World. I had no idea this would be a hit!

Here is one with 3 of us at Wat Pho (the Temple of the Reclining Buddha), Wat Phra Chetuphon.

#MySundayPhoto: Back to our normal Sunday activity. You can tell how much Ethan loves feeding the ducks.

Middle Row: Left – Right 

Here is my August #ExplorerKids Round Up. These are so gorgeous! 

Our little DinoEvelyn. Chilling out at Undley Pumpkin Patch.

Another “Let’s grab a cuppa”… every mug has a story – right?

Bottom Row: Left – Right 

#MySundayPhoto: Another beautiful and vibrant colours of cheddis photo at Wat Pho. 

Here’s one of my week #hellofresh box. Do you fancy a free box of @hellofreshuk delivered by your door and create beautiful dishes just like I have? I’m running a competition giving away not 1, not 2, but 3 lucky persons to try a box of Hellofresh! (Only open to those who have not tried Hellofresh before and for UK residents only) Log on HERE.

Ethan is so proud of his handmade Harvest Box. His school distribute the goods amongst the senior citizens living in our community. See here on how to make your own here.


To sum up, it turns out we have established two strong and favourable communities…

#ExplorerKids IG Community

I am so proud with all of my co-hostesses. They are such an amazing and fabulous people on earth!

Once again this year food has made it to the grid. What can I say – we love food!

Crafting and making seem to be favourable too. So this year, I will try to make more of an effort to do more of these beautiful things. Lovely Pinterest overload… here I come!

Inspired adventurous travel has always been our thing and I’m so glad that this grid has evoked that.

I hope there will be more of these to come in 2017!

Thank you so much for all of your incredible support throughout the year. It has been a touch and go, a bumpy ride but bring on 2017 – I am ready for you!

    Upping my instagram account is one of my 2017 goals. I need to get down with the hashtags.

    I may just try out this best of 2016 thing! I love Instagram but I’m still pretty new over there. I’m trying hard to post at least once a day, but sometimes I’m just not photo inspired. Something for me to work on in 2017!

      It is great fun! Just take anything – it will come naturally. xx

      lol! That’s a great sigh for 2017 I’m sure!! (Smily face!) xx

    What a lovely summary of your year, and of your lovely linky and Instagram community. I did the best 9, but as my followers (and therefore likes) increased throughout the year, it was quite weighted towards the end of the year. Still lovely to see though. #FabFridayPost

      I had the same thing last year. All my nine are from November/ December pics. I’m glad this year is a little different. I’d love to see yours too. xx
