A few weeks ago, Lou from Pink Pear Bear and me, started a new Instagram community: #pinklinker . Although it’s an extension of our #bigpinklink community, the tag is open for anybody to use, you don’t have to join in with the linky to take part!* We have waited a few weeks to do our first roundup post, as Lou was away for a while, and we were still spreading the word about our lovely new community!
Now Lou is back, and we have lots of people joining in with the hashtag, here is our very first roundup post! Each week, we will pick our four favourites, (I will choose four, and Lou will choose four,) and we will share them on a regular roundup post, here on our blogs, on Instagram, and all our other social media places where we hang out!
So here you are, my first four favourites!

This gorgeous one by Hannah From The Diary of an Ordinary Mum, came with the lovely quote ‘second star to the right and straight on till morning,’ from Peter Pan. In this photo, Hannah’s daughter looks so little, and really looks like she’s off on a huge adventure-the Peter Pan quote is so fitting. Hannah uses lots of Disney quotes for her pictures, and her feed is full of beautiful pictures of her family and their adventures.
I absolutely loved this one from Scandi Mummy. As most of our community are parents, it’s inevitable that our Instagram feeds will mainly focus on our children. I think it’s important that we celebrate when we feel we look and feel amazing. I’ve felt that I’ve lost myself to motherhood, and feel a little frumpy, and although this picture was taken before Nadia had her son, I love that she can still celebrate herself, as well as herself as a mother. I think everyone will agree that Nadia looks absolutely stunning here!
Cheryl, from Tea Or Wine, has written honestly about how tough her family holiday was this year! And I agree, holidays with children are in no way holidays, and can be absolute nightmares a lot of the time. But, there are moments, like this, that capture that odd moment of pure enjoyment that you can have on holiday with little ones!!
I absolutely loved this, from Sarah, at Mum Muddling Through. The way the tree has been captured, makes it look very ethereal, and the adorable way her daughter is looking up at it again captures the total joy that these moments can give us, when our children find awe in something so simple. Like me, Sarah doesn’t show her children’s faces in her pictures, but proves that you don’t have to, to still have a lovely feed full of family shots.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the first roundup post! Thanks to everyone using the tag, and joining in! If you’re not using it already, please do so, we’d love to see you!
