The instagrammers guide to Notting Hill

Being a blogger, I am in constant need of Instagram photos. As soon as one goes up, I need to start prepping the next one. It's a never ending stream of photo taking, editing and caption writing.

Very rarely am I happy with my grid. It takes a lot of time and effort which I sometimes just don't have. The location is also such a huge factor. You can have a half decent outfit, but if the background ain't working with your feed then it ain't worth posting.


Notting Hill is Fashion blogger central. There's someone taking an outfit photo in EVERY. SINGLE. DOORWAY. But, I don't want my feed to look like every other bloggers so too many photos of those colourful houses is a no, no. But, beyond the brightly coloured streets, Notting hill is Instagram gold!

Wild at heart - Westbourne grove

Wild at heart is the most ~beautiful~ florists you will ever see! I was originally introduced the shop by Beth Sandland and loved it as soon as I saw it. It's flower heaven, and I'm not exaggerating in the slightest.
It's on Westbourne grove which is just off of portobello road, a quieter area of notting hill but one you must see.



The mews

Notting Hill is FULL of little mews and back streets which are gorgeous backgrounds for Instagram photos. Have a little explore around some of the back streets and I guarantee you will find somewhere worth a quick snap.



Powis Gardens

I never intended to find the graffiti on Powis Gardens, but I'm glad I did because it is like gold dust if you have a colourful feed.


Denbigh Terrace

Denbigh terrace is the road of colourful houses which is famous among fashion bloggers for being the. most. popular. shooting. location. ever. There are lines of people waiting for a photo on the doorstep of each and every house. Some how I feel more comfortable shooting there because everyone else is doing the same.
