If you’ve been following me on Instagram then you must know by now I’m a little obsazzed with straw/basket bags. It’s been such a fun trend to rock all summer long (and into the fall).

My style tips: If you love the idea of the basket bag but aren’t sure how to make it practical for your wardrobe, try pairing it with a cute dress, denim shorts and/or a flow-y off the shoulder top. These bags are so fun to style and take pics of! They come in a range of different sizes, colors, and silhouettes. Here’s some inspo you …

My Visit to Instagram Headquarters

Lifestyle | July 12, 2017

Yesterday I took a little field trip down to the Instagram headquarters in Culver City. You’re probably wondering how in the world I was able to do this? My management team got us in touch with our contact over there who helped us set up a meeting to come in, explore, and sit with someone to get some Insta-tips. I’ve been looking forward to this visit for a while because I had tons of questions I wanted to ask them!

Facebook obviously owns Instagram so when we arrived into the Facebook building, the first thing that drew my attention was …

I read an article this morning that said Instagram has over 600 million active users a month and over 400 million active users DAILY. My mouth dropped! Can we flash back for a second. Do you remember your first Instagram post? For me, that was over 4,000 photos ago and back in 2011 when frames and filters were all the rage. I’ve definitely gone back and cleaned up my profile since then so I really can’t remember my first post! #slightlybummed

This might sound funny but I can’t imagine my life without Instagram today. It’s been a mega platform that …

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of HASHTAGS and SOCIAL MEDIA. I was 15 when I created a XANGA page. (who remembers that!!!??) Shortly after that, I jumped on to Myspace (top 8 what’s up!!) and then Facebook. Fast forward to 2010 – I’m in college and suddenly obsessed with this “Instagram” app.

Remember the days when social media was just a communication tool for us to quickly connect with family and friends across the globe? Having a social media presence in 2017 is one thing, but strategically marketing your …

Current Crush: VELVET

I’m crushing hard for velvet this season and scored when I found these pretty shoes at ASOS. Guess what? TBH the fragrance cost more than the shoes. I can’t believe I got these bad boys for under $50.

My fall shopping list is coming soon in case some of you have been searching for cute fall newbies. I think I’m going to stick to the under $50 theme if that’s cool? Heading out of town today, but I’ll keep my eyes peeled for any cute things I see. In the meantime here are some more pretty velvet things linked …

Instagram New Algorithm | A Blogger’s Worst Nightmare?

HOLD THE PHONE, Instagram announced a new algorithm that is taking effect in the days to come. Everyone’s talking about it so I figured I’d share my two cents! My first impression: what in the world does this algorithm change mean for me? The app has made so many updates (weekly it seems) so when I heard the news – I didn’t understand how severe this change was going to be. After I learned that the new algorithm will rearrange timeline feeds to show content “most likely” to be relevant to the user, instead of the chronological timelines that appear …

Summer Instagram Outfits

Style | August 26, 2015

I have been traveling a ton lately which has resulted in very few outfit posts – Instagram outfits don’t count! Or do they? I realized that sometimes it’s easier to post my outfits to Instagram when I’m on-the-go and to link the details to my LikeToKnow.it account. If you aren’t familiar with LTK, basically if you sign up on their website and then “like” any photo on my Instagram that has a “www.liketk.it” URL in the caption – you’ll receive the product links to shop my outfit straight to your inbox. It’s shopping made easy!

I decided to round up …
