Instagram Wife

In the interest of feminism and gender equality, this Instagram Wife photographs her Instagram Husband in the scenic Grade II listed forest of Wanstead Park, London. All clothes by Regimental Vintage.

Shoot others as you would have them shoot you

Maybe my shooter of choice - Canon 6D, 85mm f1.8 (see the contents of my camera bag here) - elicits less knee-jerk reactions than Henry’s arsenal of AK-47, PPSH, and Mosin Nagan; but I’m a sharp shooter all the same. It’s a widely-accepted opinion that the formula for successful fashion blog/Instagram = photogenic girl + well managed eating disorder + credit card + photographer boyfriend. Hence the rise of the ‘Instagram Husband’ - that oft unmentioned accessory in the ‘Shop the post/Buy the look here’ section in, like, every fashion blog ever.  
So in the interest of gender equality - and I don’t mean jumping on the OMG FEMINIST bandwagon - I thought I’d share with you how mine and Henry’s relationship goes both ways. Yes, he does follow me around and takes marvellous photos of me for my blog but I also happily return the favour. Because like body pleasure, stoking the flames of vainglory is so much more fun when you have a partner. 
Here are some photos I took of my Instagram Husband bearing arms in Wanstead Park, because every healthy relationship should also have an Instagram Wife.

The Sisterhood Of The World Bloggers


Me and my bitches on holiday. HashtagGirlsOnTour 

Dead or alive, I'll always be 'The late Jasiminne Yip'. I'm perpetually the last to show up - at breakfast (if I put in a appearance at all), at birthdays (even my own. I came into the world two weeks late, fact. Sorry, mum)...My real-life tardiness extends to the world of the wide web. Angie roped me into The Sisterhood of the World Bloggers tag two whole weeks ago and I'm finally getting down to business. Thank Confucius it's not up to me to defeat the Huns, or all of China will be speaking Mongol today.

My 2015, or 'In which I became a shopkeeper, slayed Internet trolls, travelled to 8 countries, and got fat along the way'

Thank Jeebus for the advent of social media/blogging (delete where applicable) - without them my only memory of 2015 would be the revelation that Agent Fox Mulder is a dead ringer for my boyfriend.

Nasty Encounters Of The Blogging Kind


I've been dying to get this off my chest, because God knows that my pent up aggression from smiling politely (in the name of civility and professionalism) at the basic faces of absolute appalling behaviour  will age me prematurely.

Interiors: My London Home Office & Workspace


This, dear reader, is my personal pinnacle of human achievement: a workspace I don't have to hurriedly throw a sheet over whenever I have company for shame of the mess that dares not speak its name(s). Mostly chips and dents in the desk, a rainbow-hued avalanche of Sharpies, and camera lenses haphazardly rolling about -- is that a lens cap in my mug of tea? Yes.

4 London Museums for Photoshoots & Filming

Horniman Museum and Gardens Forest Hill London

Art - or in this case, the art of blogging - imitates life, so as a blogger you better be damn sure your life or at least surroundings are interesting. Whether the setting for your fashion posts are the white stuccoed streets of Chelsea or you shoot outdoors in verdant parks of East London, I’m certain all you London bloggers are a creative lot who are always seeking a new backdrop in this vast and eclectic city.

Serendipity: How I Got the Olympus Pen I Wanted But Don't Need


I must have been a real saint in my past life judging by all the good karma that comes my way, or at least the serendipity I’m blessed with in the way of being gifted the objects I desire. Such was the case with Jumbo (my SUV) and both my new iPhone 6s (one for London and one for Kuala Lumpur), and so it is with the camera I was lusting over - the Olympus Pen E-PL7.

Spreading the (Blog) L♥ve


Yesterday evening I had dinner with a hashtag of bloggers* - Tweet & Eat, round 2 - at that foodie favourite Ceru in Fitzvoria when the topic of Bloglovin came up. Bloglovin is a contentious subject - widely used in Europe and USA, not used at all in Asia - and its usefulness is debatable depending on who you ask. I myself just joined Bloglovin, come say hi! and I'm resolutely, absolutely, addicted to it. Bloglovin, together with Pinterest and Tumblr, is part of my daily pre-bedtime and post-wakeup reading routine - I can't go to sleep nor get out of bed without scrolling through my feed for new posts from blogs I follow, and discovering new posts then saving them to read for later. I've discovered a wealth of fascinating, informative, and downright beautiful blogs thanks to my chronic Bloglovin habit and I thought, it's only fair that I share with you the blog posts that have made me smile this week!

What's In My Camera Bag | My Camera Lenses & Guide to Prime Lenses


Today's post follows the 'Useful & Beautiful' theme of Posh, Broke, & Bored in which I share tips and hacks that could well be useful for your photography, blogging, or to just 'win at life'. So yes, that's useful, but how is it beautiful? Well! I'll illustrate my knowledge with ocular crack/eye candy from the five different countries I've been to this year - Latvia, UK, Malaysia, Vietnam, and Thailand. For this blog post about my camera lenses I've put together an eclectic gallery of photos - travel, street photography, portraits, food, wildlife etc. - taken by both Henry and I. A few of these you may recognise from recent blog posts but most of them are f-f-fresh off the boat, so even if you're not a budding blogger looking to level up your photography and learn more about camera lenses, you can just enjoy this post as 'Postcards from Kuala Lumpur'.
