My 5 favorite Instagram-ers

I'm not even going to take the time to explain what Instagram is because even if you don't have an iPhone, you have to have been living under a rock not to have these pictures shoved in your face on virtually every social media platform possible. That being said....I'm obsessed with it. Here are five of my favorite photo 'snappers to follow: 


Kate is one of the best in the game as far as I'm concerned. Her (almost daily) outfit snaps, food shots, and occasional peaks into her home are all so simple and lovely. Plus the fact that one of my favorite bloggers lives in the same city as me blows my mind. 


Keegan was my boss-man at an internship last summer and it needs to be known that he can pull off a bow tie like none other. To be honest sometimes when I can't decide what to wear in the morning I pick a random outfit from his Instagram feed and then copy it with a little feminine twist. I also 'AWWWWW' over pretty much every picture of him and his boyfriend Paul because they go on the most fun dates ever. 


I'm typically pretty fine with being me, unless we're talking about this CAAA-UUUUUTE bunch and then it's just a huge game of "WHY CAN'T I BE YOU?!?!?!" (Excess punctuation not even for effect.) No, people, I have never met this family, but I have read their blog (Rockstar Diaries) for about four years now (back when Josh and Naomi just got married and now they're pregnant with second child and THEY ARE JUST GROWING UP SO FAST. They are seriously, SERIOUSLY the cutest family ever. 


One of my favorite brands on all social media fronts, Alice & Olivia is just plain fun. Their Instagram feed is a boat-load of different pictures, everything from showroom pics, snapshots of Stacy Bendet (head designer) boppin around NYC, and of course, mani Mondays.


Again, one of my favorite bloggers, but what I love is Bri's totally fresh take on Instagram-ing. Anyone can take a picture of a wine glass (uh, me) but she's always exploring different angles and lighting. This is a close up of a sequin clutch. Who knew?

Big girl office

One day, when I have a big-girl office (have to get a big girl job first) all I want is a huge sleek white desk. Can't believe this one from Overstock is only $145!

P.S. Have you ever checked out Poppin? It's the cutest office supplies website!

$16 summer

It's going to be another cat-eye sunglasses summer for me. I look nowhere near as cool as Marilyn Monroe and other 50's/60's babes in them but that's okay because I can pretend and half of my life is spent pretending I'm cooler than I am. In reality I get a lot of food stuck in my teeth and I'm pretty sure my fly is down 80% of the time. Don't act like you're not impressed. 

This flashy Urban Outfitters pair also comes in leopard if you feelin' sassy and black, which is always sleek.

This is happiness (for me)

This picture makes me all gooey inside; it's one of the most peaceful feelings I know. That is all. Have a wonderful Tuesday.

Ship & Shape is a new online shop I discovered that sells some pretty cool (and decently priced) trinkets from a huge array of different artists.

Confetti System Garlands

If there's one thing I would love for behind my desk, it's one of these Confetti System garlands. If there's anything we've learned from my blog it's that confetti is one of my top three favorite words.

...Number one is anything that ends in -oodle.

Summer is upon us

Well NOT today it's not. What is this 30-degree business?? But I'm waiting for the days when I can bask in the sun in this swimsuit by Mara Hoffman (or so I wish).
