Instagram Lately

I started my Instagram account last September, and I really enjoy the social network. I now spend much more time browsing Instagram than browsing Facebook. Besides my own activity and the pictures that I share on Instagram, I also find a lot on inspiration on different profiles and hashtags. During the first two months since I started my Instagram account, September and October, I wrote a few stories inspired by Instagram and I shared some of my favorite Insta moments.

For today's story I thought to do the same -- I would like to share the top 10 photos my followers loved the most on my Instagram account lately. I didn't have as a strong presence on Instagram over the last few months as I had in the first two months, so the photos captured in this story are among my Instagram photos taken within the last 6 months, since November up until now.
This is the most liked photo not only within he last 6 months, but also throughout my entire activity on Instagram so far. Two treats that I picked up from Winners when I went for a mini-shopping during one of my lunch hours at work -- macarons and a book about Laduree macarons (and other Parisian chic things).
My cat Niles, he's adorable!
My collection of mini-perfumes from my current perfume sampler. One of them will turn into a full-size bottle of perfume. I am yet to decide which of them I like the most and which of them will turn into the regular size perfume.
The mini-perfumes are:
- Signorina by Salvatore Ferragamo
- Chloé by Chloé
- Angel Muse by Thierry Mugler
- La Nuit Tresor by Lancome
- L'Eau d'Issey Pure by Issey Miyake
- Eros pour Femme by Versace
- Si by Giorgio Armani
Coffee and writing -- my favorite way to start a Saturday morning on a cozy weekend at home
A typical winter day in Canada, February 2017
You know you're a writer when you keep buying new notebooks, even if you already have half a dozen of them in your home office, but you can't help but buy more, just in case 😊
I took this photo on January 1st 2017 -- it was a particularly bright and sunny day, a perfect day to start a new year
One of my favorite purses (a tote bag in fact), a Villa Valise bag, created by a local designer whom I met in Toronto in 2015, I love the vintage inspired design of it. And a few more beauty items and accessories. 😊
My absolutely favorite shoes -- Manolo Blahnik Something Blue Satin pumps, worn by Carrie Bradshaw in "Sex and the City". Last two times when I wore them were for the New Year's Eve party, and then a few days later for a dinner out with my husband.
My Valentine flowers, 😊 February 14th 2017
