Food Diary: Photos that didn't make it on Instagram

Since moving to London I've been able to eat out a lot more. Because I'm a foodie, 99% of the time I will take a photo of my food before eating it. Yes I am that friend that's like "WAIT! I need to Instagram our food!!". The camera function on my phone is even usually on "square" mode just so I can get the composition perfect for Instagram.

However, as much as I love the photo-sharing platform, I am usually too hungry to edit, go through filters and upload on the spot. I don't want my food to get cold! I think to myself "I'll Instagram after I've eaten" but then I usually get too caught up with chatting; so I tell myself I'll do it when I get home. By the time I get home I probably have stuff I need to do or get distracted; so I tell myself that there's always #throwbackthursday. By the time Thursday comes I've completely forgotten I wanted to Instagram that meal. *sigh* #firstworldproblems right?

And thus, my collection of foodporn grows. It's grown to a point I need to delete them because I'm running out of space on my phone! I don't wanna spam Instagram so instead I'm going to make a post on my blog. Hope you enjoy! #nofilter by the way ;)

    Wow this is some serious food porn! And I really liked the post because I have some pics which never made it on Instagram myself, but that was mostly because of theire quality ;) As for the Hema beauty products: you should really give them a try, they did a great job for me!
