Confession: I'm kinda one of those people who pick only the best parts of their day on instagram aaaannnddd, I'll take this one step further to say I sometimes semi-pose things to make sure they're 'instagram worthy'.
Now, I know I'm not the only person doing this but, one thing I really appreciate in life is a little transparency. I don't totally have my shit together - and I don't expect you to either! Win-Win!
In an effort to provide a little transparency (especially since the blog has been light and my instagram feed has been heavy of late) I'm gonna tell all.
....annnd now.....for the rest of the storrrryyyy....
I went out to take this photo - because really I don't have too much to photo at sea. White caps and Coffee. The highlights of my day. As soon as I went out to snap a photo the wind whipped all the froth off my coffee and straight onto my jacket. I was a total flipping mess!
I took the photo on the left - and then decided my leg looked fat and white - so I took the photo on the right. Then, I didn't post either one because I was scared someone would ask me about FitMermate and my exercise intentions. I'm like an ostrich with my head in the sand....no one can see me not exercising out here if I don't post it on instagram!
I may have mentioned that I never went ashore in Japan....I slept instead. That being said, I posted this photo of our approach to Yokohama with pretty clouds. In actuality I was bundled up on the bow because it was raining and I was semi miserable. I docked the ship, got off watch, ate and slept. Total false advertising.
Alright, I know I already posted a coffee photo but, this photo took me about 6 tries. I had to take many, many photos individually and then pick two that I wanted to marry. Then I tried many, many times to get just the right border with my A Beautiful Mess app. Time consuming would be an understatement in this case. Incidentally, if you want to get more followers on instagram hashtag #aeropress. No lie. Coffee Lovers Unite!
I've got more where these came from. I'm thinking I'll save them for later. I mean, we should be honest more than just once in a while, right?
In the meantime, you can find me on Instagram: @nautiemermate - Instagram has become something I love - a source of inspiration, aspirations and what ifs. Find me so I can find you!
