Snapshot Round-up: Blue

There was a lot of love for the Blue theme in the BritMums community this month, not just from overseas trips during the school holidays but here in Blighty too. Don’t forget if you enjoy taking photographs, you can also join in with #SnapHappyBritMums over on Instagram. You can find the prompts for April here.  

So kicking off this month’s Snapshot Round-up are two photographs from the Southbank, both of the London Eye albeit from different perspectives. First up is Birds and Lillies closely followed by The Oliver’s Madhouse.

Project Wunderlust took a sleeper train to Scotland to check out Loch Ness, John O’Groats and Ben Nevis, this beautiful landscape taken at Fort William. Chelsea Mamma on the other hand bravely took to the skies with Pier Zip at Rocket Reef (Photo: Wave Slider Photography)

My Travel Monkey has been soaking up the Lisbon weather in Portugal and this stunning photograph of West Kirby Marine Lake was taken by Mini Travellers in the Wirral.  

Just stunning today. Check out my Instagram stories for the full effect! #nofilter #ukexplore #wirral

A Moment with Franca visited St Ives; Life is Knutts shows us the beach huts at Charmouth Beach and Bridie By The Sea is in Brighton.

Rough Measures shared this brilliant veg patch that Yeo Valley use to grow their supplies in while Vintage Folly shows how to transform a 1940’s nightie into a tea dress.  

Foodiequine recently enjoyed a break to Iceland including the Blue Lagoon with Baby Foote taking an interesting route up to Saint Agatha’s Tower in Malta.  

As for the Doves, we’ve seen an abundance of blue recently especially while we were in Lanzarote. One of the most breathtaking views was from here at the Mirador Del Rio. It’s a spectacular vista which offers breathtaking views of La Graciosa, and the uninhabited Alegranza and Montaña Clara.

Thank you to everyone that submitted photos for the Blue theme. We’ll be back next month with another round-up. In the meantime, check out #SnapHappyBritMums on Instagram and come and say hello – either on Twitter or Instagram.
