Pinspiration – Selfies Recreations

Another Pinspiration post. I just love wasting time on Pinterest. There’s so much incredible pictures out there that I can’t do. Especially selfies. That being said, I was scrolling through and saw some pictures that I could maaaaybe do.

If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen a few of these already. The ones I’m really proud of anyway. In fact , I liked one so much it’s its now my profile picture both on my blog and on Instagram!

Let’s get into it!


Striped tee, ripped jeans and oversized cardigan - cozy casual outfit



The hardest part for this was trying to find a clear spot in the house to do this. The light in our bedroom isn’t the greatest, so I went in the living room. It was complicated to try get the angle right, and not to show any of the weird things lying on the floor like wires. I really like how this one came out though.

Okay, so I’m not in Paris, and I wasn’t about to go find a landmark to lie down on the ground. It was raining. So I just lay down in my office and did it there. To be honest, I took only one take for this, and it was just so much fun to take a selfie upside down. Maybe I’ll do it more often!

Take Me South


Looking out

So, I thought I could do this on our window sill, but I kept falling off. So I took to the sunroom instead. I think I got a similar aesthetic going on. I did match the outfit as best I could. My only grey sweater is my Harry Potter themed one though! I wish I had her ring necklace though. I really like it.

This girl has a lot more ‘edge’ than me, but hey I tried. I like that I did the shoe bit, that was my favourite part of the whole picture. Also, her makeup is intense, and I could never do that in a million years. Still, it was fun to try recreate.

glasses coffee

This was my most favourite one. All it required was my stripy shirt, glasses, messy hair and a mug. That mug has nothing in it by the way. Sorry to ruin the illusion! This picture just seemed really cute, that I wanted to try recreate it. I wasn’t going to go to a cafe, cause I’m not that devoted to the recreation art, I just went to our sunroom. I’m really happy with this one!

That’s all I did. These were all enough work to be honest, and took me waaay too much time to do. But I had so much fun doing it, maybe one day I’ll do it again if I find more of these photos I like!

Let me know which one you think I recreated the best, or just which one is your favourite!
