September Instastories Round-Up! Shop the Posts You May Have Missed!

JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser. Reactivate it to view this content. I’m taking a little blogging break this week to get some other stuff done but I wanted to do a quick, Instastories round-up for y’all before September is over! All of you are so sweet to be interested in what I’m doing on the daily, but since I currently have less than 10k “followers” on Insta I don’t have access to the handy-dandy, “swipe up to shop” feature! As a result I get dozens of inbox messages asking me for links to the items I post about,…

Brand Rep Instagram Spotlight

I absolutely love seeing my sequin hangers shared on Instagram! Recently I’ve started working with two of my favorite bloggers and one of my favorite Etsy shops as reps for the Glitter & Bow brand. Today I wanted to tribute a little shout-out for all the lovely photos they have posted on Instagram featuring G&B sequin hangers. I think the best advertising for any product is showing potential shoppers how an item can be used in real life. Below you’ll see Lexie (J’adore Lexie Couture) using her sequin hanger to display her and her daughter’s favorite clothing, Oksana (Foxy Oxie)…

Instagram FAQ – How I Edit My Photos

Happy Saturday morning, loves!Today I wanted to answer a frequently asked question I get on Instagram:Q: What apps do you use to edit your photos and which filters do you like best?A: I use a combination of 4 apps: Aviary, VSCOcam, Rhonna Designs and A Beautiful Mess. These apps are available for OSX and Android systems. I also try to take my photos with as much natural light as possible. This creates a much brighter, more professional, clean looking photo.  image via My favourite filter in Aviary is ‘Underground’. It anchors curve points and gives the photo a lightened matte effect. I use…
