This is it

I can’t believe it’s the 1st of December already. Tomorrow is the first of December 2015, and I am in London. I’m sorry. I keep banging on and on about that, but I just can’t believe that I’m still here. I’m not a small town girl. I’m from a great city. Not a big city,…

What Instagram means to me

Hi, I’m @missleilah, and I used to be part of the Instgramers Cape Town community but I’ve since moved to London and am now a London iger. A big moment for me this year was when I got to meet two really amazing girls – @missunderground and @movethemoon (two igers whose work I’ve always admired)…
