Hi lovies! Hope you all enjoyed your Easter weekend, did any of you get a visit from the Easter bunny himself?
I haven’t had the chance to update my blog for an entire month! Man oh man, what a bummer that was. My laptop charger was mistakenly left at my parent’s house nearly 2 hours away, so I went M.I.A. on my blog. But I am back! And this time for good, you can’t get rid of me that fast :)
We are all familiar with Instagram, it has changed social media tremendously! I can literally see it doing back flips and front flips, what a genius! That being said, we all have our favorite accounts we like to follow on Instagram. And if you’re like me, you have TONS! For the last few weeks now, I have become obsessive over the new “EXPLORE” icon on Instagram. It gives me the ability to search for more people who are interested in the same things I am, or follow people that my followers follow. (That’s a tongue twister!)
Here are some of my fav accounts on Instagram, so far this year!
This Instagram page is awesome for you folks in LA who are total foodies, like myself. I love trying all the unique fun little places LA has to offer and exploring the menu, it is actually an exciting hobby my sister and I have developed over the past few years living in LA. Of course, before Instagram we trusted yelp or friends to recommend us to fun little spots but now with Instagram it displays food options and awesome pictures of restaurants from all over the city! If you’re a foodie living in LA trying to explore more unique places, go follow @eating_la!
There is this new awesome trend that is happening, flatlays! Sounds like a funny name, but it defines exactly what it is. You lay out your favorite items, all organized perfectly together and snap a photo.. There you have a creative flatlay. This account has really given me more creative ideas on my blogging efforts to be more, well “creative” and I have to give this account two thumbs up!
Are you a creative woman? Or inspired by collections of work made by creative women? You need to go follow this awesome account! I sorta came across this page, randomly on the explore page and practically fell in love with its awesomeness. As they say on their page, “Call Yourself Babe!” The page represents creative projects, publications and interviews by creative women and the empowerment behind their ideas.
Of course, I must mention this video capability app that is dear to my heart. OCHO Video was recently released on the app store earlier this year, and has done some tremendous things since their launch date. This app allows its users to creatively inspire their own 8-second video with awesome features and capabilities never seen on any other video app in the app store. It is easy, fun and full of other creative brains itching to see more! If you have an eye for video and all this junk I mentioned, go download Ocho and follow all your favorite Ocho kids @sarahloo_ !
Now, I have just recently started following Instacart and I am quite impressed with their ideas and vision! I was absolutely fascinated with their slogan, “One-Hour Grocery Delivery!” This blew my mind, could this actually be a thing? This account on Instagram brands their company, instacart.com helping spread the word on helping families, or individuals get their groceries and delivered to their door step without ever having to leave the comfort of your own home or rushing to the store after work to have dinner on the table by 7pm. Instacart will do the dirty work FOR YOU, is this the future?
There you have it guys, my favorite accounts on Instagram! I hope you all find some enjoyment or use out of the accounts I have mentioned here on my blog and go follow them. If you have any awesome accounts that you think I should follow, or want me to blog about please don’t be shy and shoot me an email firstname.lastname@example.org
