The reality behind Instagram

The reality behind the images I share on Instagram, featuring the before and afters of my images

I'm an Insta-addict, plain and simple. Since signing up two years ago I've become completely obsessed with looking at peoples homes, and I can safely say it's single-handedly responsible for the massive hit my bank balance takes every time I spot a new trend.

However, I'm under no allusion that it's real life. I think we're all guilty of jazzing things up a bit for our pictures, I know I certainly am. This can be hard to remember though when you're admiring someone's perfectly styled show-home, whilst the dog does her business on your rug, and you've no idea where the 15 cold cups of tea littering the lounge have come from.

So I've trawled through the high street (any excuse!) so you don't have to, picking out some of my favourite new season bits to give your home an Autumnal update, all for under £20.
