Instagram is by far my favourite social media platform and even when I am having a break from blogging or promoting I will still be posting pictures. I can’t help myself. Partly because I have a terrible memory and often use photos to remind me of certain events, days out or experiences which I really want to record, to remember  – #rememberingthesedays


What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”

Karl Lagerfeld

Memories such as family holidays and days out:

Picturesque photo opportunities:

Brothers meeting for the first time:


Baby milestones – Kipper’s first smile:


All such precious memories. This is why myself and the lovely Laura from Life with Baby Kicks have decided to launch a new Instagram community to encompass the memories of these days. We want to build a community where you can share those photographs where you are #rememberingthesedays.

Whatever the memory, or life event you want to record, joining in is simple, just tag your favourite photos #rememberingthesedays over on Instagram. Which means you don’t have to be a blogger to join in (but we hope you lovely bloggers do!), you just need an Instagram account and a desire to make memories and go about #rememberingthesedays.

Every Sunday myself and Laura will feature our favourite four shots from the hashtag, both on Instagram and on our blogs. We really hope you will join in with us and share with us your precious memories.

Come and find us on Instagram by searching the #rememberingthesedays

Heres Laura’s Big One and the Baby enjoying a family day out:

And heres me and Monkey on a helter skelter just like I use to do with my dad:

We really hope you can join us. I am looking forward to seeing what you have been up to and choosing my favourites next week.

    I would love to join in and love the idea. I started posting photos and recently flicked back through all the photos. It really is a bit of a capture of moments of my family and is really lovely to look back on. Also lovely to be able to click on your hashtag and see other beautiful moments too.

    • Aww welcome, I’m addicted to IG at somepoint I will be printing them out too!! Look forward to seeing your Memories X

  2. Love the photo of you going down the helter skelter! That brings back loads of memories for me. Also making a note of your fab new #rememberingthesedays. #BloggerClubUK

  3. This is such a great idea! I love instagram for this sorta thing, it’s a capsule of precious moments for me. I’ll need to remember this hashtag for sure! #BloggerClubUK

  4. I am falling in love with instagram and it is the social media channel that I feel most comfortable with. I’m so glad I’ve found this # and will be joining in. Starting now! #BloggerClubUK

  5. Oh great idea! I will definitely try to join in though I am a bit rubbish with Instagram, sometimes I use it a lot and then I forget for days at a time! Love the helter skelter picture, so cool. #BloggerClubUK

  6. This is such a brilliant idea, I love taking photographs so much that I keep having to upgrade my memory on my camera and phone! Loving the Intsagram tag!

    That’s a good idea. I absolutely love photos and now its all digital (god I sound ancient!) it is so easy to grab a shot and post it. I like IG, although don’t use it a huge amount, it’s a good platform. I hope you get a great response. Alison x #BloggerClubUK

  8. What a great idea for a new community. I have to confess I haven’t ventured into the Instagram world yet, mainly because it doesn’t fit at the moment with my decision to be anonymous but that may change. Good luck, sure it will be a great success. #BloggerClubUK

  9. Oh I love this idea, Instagram is my favourite social media since becoming a blogger (I hated it before!) So I will definitely be joining #BloggerClubUK

    What a lovely bunch of photos. I will certainly join in the # when I can! #BloggerClubUk

  11. I love Instagram and joining in with different hashtags so I will definitely be getting involved with this. I love the photo’s you have shared here, Leo would be very jealous of Monkey getting to go on a helter skelter!xx #bloggerclubuk

  12. It’s a great idea. I have an instagram account but I don’t do much with it. Will see if I can figure it out #bloggerclubuk

    What a lovely idea, it’s great to sit back and remember these happy moments and it’s great to share them with others. #bloggerclubuk

  14. I am fairly new to IG, I only joined in January of this year. I am totally addicted and love finding beautiful photos through hashtags like this. I love the ethos behind #rememberingthesedays and will definitely be joining in over on Instagram

  15. This sounds like a lovely community, I’ll definitely try to remember to join in. I’m useless at adding instagram hashtags, so I really need to get organised. I will try though! thanks for hosting #bloggerclubuk

  16. Hi Clare, what a good idea. I do like Instagram, but don’t use it as much as I’d like. My intentions are good. I will be sure to add your hashtag to my list of hashtags (as I said my intentions are good!) and will hopefully add it to some of my pics.

    Lovely idea – im fairly new to instagram and totally hooked! I’ve already joined in with the hash tag 😀
