journal: in short

I love Instagram. Unlike Twitter. After being a member of the Twitter-Community for some month I finally faced the truth: I have nothing to twitter. Which is kind of a surprise as I really love words. And in fact some guys out there really know the trick. Twitter in combination with a dull TV show is pure fun. I found myself reading tweet after tweed rather than actually focusing on the TV show. As a consequence I deleted my account. But Instagram, it‘s really all I need. 

In the beginning I just used it to follow celebrities I liked. I enjoyed seeing snapshots taken by fashion models like Karolina Kurkova or Coco Rocha. With time I started posting photos myself. Can you believe that I felt quite shy about that in the start? Like with blogging too I needed some time to feel comfortable about the fact that I send my photos "out there". By now I use Instagram to capture and share special or funny moments, to inspire (isn't the Alexander Wang cropped shirt amazing?) and (even more important) to get inspired and - of course - to announce new blog posts on my blog.
