insta-faves 02I was pleased with how the other INSTA-FAVES post turned out so thought I’d make it a thing here on LF. I’ll post when I have four images saved to my phone of similar aesthetic.  Just like the other post, here, I’ll share the image source and what you can expect to see if you follow the account.  This entry’s theme is food/kitchen!

Here you will find beautiful flower arrangements, table settings and events.  Love me some well organized ariel photos and how cute are those daisies!?

Here you will find not only pretty clothes from their web store and catalog but also event coverage and inspiring home decor.  After seeing this photo I immediately checked out the Mason Shaker site and added their products to my wet bar wishlist-good stuff!

Here you will find stunning food photography, blog updates, home decor inspiration, Beth’s travel photos and more!  I know you’re wondering about that moon mug so I’ll spare you the research, it’s by Small Spells.

Here you will find all things authentic from a photographers moment, food, families, decor and lots more all capturing America in it’s finest.  This is a blueberry lavender pie, I repeat. BLUEBERRY LAVENDER!

Hope you enjoyed! Soft launch of our website is coming tomorrow, can’t tell you yet but it’s going to be a goodie and I’ll definitely share soon!

Insta-Faves 01

moonfeather1924morganYou know when you’re scrolling through Instagram and screenshot images you find inspiring and save them in your library and go back and look at them over and over again until you delete them because your phone is full and you must make room. (I know it’s not just me doing this!)

Well I’ve had a few images that have been chilling in my library and I thought I’d share, here are my top four of the moment!


On this account you will see-floral decor, flowers, diy

Not that I’m currently engaged but I’ve been looking at this image and realizing its vibes are exactly what I want for my future wedding. You can see this on the Pinterest board I started a while back, not even ashamed that I’m already pinning!


On this account you will see- minimal photography, handmade goods for sale, branding

Their photos really stand out from a lot of the images you see on IG. They let the object/subject speak for itself and often have a lot of white space. Trying to simplify myself in many ways and this account is great inspiration.


On this account you will see- a photographers adventures/behind the scenes

Recently Morgan and I met when her friend connected us after Rachel realized we both had a similar love for all things denim.  She’s a friendly local with lots of experience under her belt and is currently traveling and documenting for So Worth Loving.


On this account you will see- a jewelry maker’s adventures, goods, behind the scenes 

This lady is seriously crafty. I’m dying for a couple of her stack rings! Not mention she’s got a great eye for snapping photos-creative angles and cropping-I’m always taking mental notes. If you don’t already follow these accounts and you like to be inspired, I’d say you outta check them out.  These are the type of folks that keep me wanting to take my hobbies further!


The ladies over at A Beautiful Mess challenged themselves to a 30-day Instagram Selfie Challenge and invited the rest of the web to join in for a chance to win their new photography idea book! For a while now I’ve been wanting to do some sort of photography challenge and this one seemed fun +easy so I joined in from the start and 30 (ish) days later I compiled many different styles of “selfies” Though the contest is closed and I [sadly] didn’t win the book, I did enjoy documenting my versions of selfies, here’s a recap from my Instagram feed all of which were taken on a phone (mine or Dustin’s if mine was dead):

you are about to read the word SELFIE more than any human should have to, sorry (I’m not sorry)

Living Walls party selfie + Braids selfie
Braves game with my man selfie + 311/Cypress Hill concert with my man selfie
pre-ombre hair selfie + seeing my contributor pic in Jezebel for the first time in print selfie
visiting my folks in FL and consuming high gravity beers selfie+ laying in Piedmont Park selfie
kisses at the Jimmy Eat World concert selfie + being in love selfie
feet in the sand at Cocoa Beach selfie + feet in the air at Cape Canaveral selfie
airport bun selfie + dress detail selfie
new sneakers selfie + new bracelets selfie
hanging with my other boo selfies
typical bathroom selfie + hot as hell after Braves game selfie
jumping my man’s car off selfie + surviving a crazy ocean storm while fishing selfie
messing ombre bun selfie + i’m sad it rains every day selfie
Friday night spent at home doing nails selfie + watermelon togo selfie
fake bob selfie + my room selfie
from where I sleep selfies

and there you have it! 30(ish) days of documenting my daily happenings with SELFIES
(if I never have to type that word again it’d be too soon!) I say 30ish because I’ll admit there were about 2-3 days where I got wrapped up in my busy schedule (or vacation!) and just FORGOT but then quickly posted early the next day. regardless I’m happy with how my final collection turned out! all are pretty different and not just me in my bathroom mirror sporting “duck lips”
