I joined Vine last week so as well as my instagram addiction I'm now really getting into playing around with these little six second videos.  Here's a few of my better attempts! (If it's a black screen click to view then click to play)  If you want to find me on the Vine app search for Gem fluttersparkle.

What do you think of Vine?  For a youtube-phobe like me it's a great way to share things without any scary talking on camera!  

As I mentioned, next week I'll be in Canada and hopefully I'll be able to keep you updated on my adventures on twitter, instagram and now Vine too!  I'm getting to fly first class which is incredibly exciting for me as I've never flown anything other than economy before.  I'm worried the cabin crew will think I've wandered into first by mistake and will try to show me back to economy, ha! 

Although I'm travelling for work I'm looking forward to shopping in duty free and in the Canadian drugstores as well as seeing Niagra Falls and hopefully a little of Toronto :)

Keep up to date with all things flutter and sparkle in any of the following ways - 


  1. Ahh, the pictures of your nails at the top look gorgeous! I think vine looks great!
