Instagram, News & Some Other Chit-Chats With You Guys!


Today I have a few info to share with you guys. I also need your opinions on a few things, so make sure you read till the end ^_^ 

Alright, let's start with info #1:

 I finally got Instagram!


Well, it's actually a Bookstagram! It took me a while to get down to getting Instagram, partly because I wasn't very happy with my skills with photography. I can't say I've become much of an expert photographer since then but the encouragements I got from some friends, including blogger friends, with regards to my photos, have finally convinced me to try my hand at Instagram. So, here I am with my blog's official Bookstagram ^_^ If you like my photos, you can click the link in the sidebar to follow me. And yes, I always follow back! Here's a little glimpse of what I've been up to on Instagram recently:


And if you want to share with your Instagram with me and other people, feel free to add a link to your profile in the comments below.

Okay, now onto info #2. And I'm going to need your advice for that one.

I'm starting a new feature soon and I'd love to hear from you about it!


Those of you who've been following my blog since a few months know that I'm from Mauritius, which is a small island in the Indian Ocean. Most people don't know much about Mauritius though, which is why I thought I would start a new feature on my blog to show you around my island. These posts will be divided into two parts. In the first part, I'll give you a virtual guided tour of a place or part of the island. Then, in the second part, I'll show you the book(s) I brought with me on the trip and which I'm currently reading. So, what do you think of that? Does it sound like something you might enjoy reading? Let me know your thoughts in the comments! Here's a little sneak peak of Mauritius:


I'm also thinking of doing some vlogs along with these posts. I'm not sure about that yet, 'cause I have basically zero experience with vlogging. It might be fun to film a bit during my trips though and share those vlogs with you. What do you think? Again, do let me know in the comments :)

  5. I LOVE the pictures you've taken so far, I added you of course! Also, I LOVE the idea of getting to know Mauritius, I think it is so great when a blogger shares some of the cool stuff from wherever in the world they happen to be from, though I must admit, your home country is especially intriguing! Looking forward to the posts!

  6. I think I'm the last blogger left who ISN'T on Instagram, but those photos are absolutely lovely! Never doubt those skills, beautiful photos, very artistic. I've had a few neighbours over the years who were originally from Mauritius, and they'd always tell me how beautiful it was. I'd love to see more photos and learn more about it. Really looking forward to it <3
