My love for Instagram has spiraled out of control. 9 out of 10 times I unlock my phone, it’s to open that little brown camera app and scroll through other people’s photos, endlessly commenting and double-tapping.
I fear I may be developing carpal tunnel from all the liking I do. Someone even messaged me on Facebook one day asking if I had a ‘bot’. Um, nope. I’m really just that consumed with photos of Ladurée macaroons, Nike Roshes, and latte art.
That being said, I feel like I’ve found some amazing photographers, artists, travelers, and fashion & beauty gurus and thought I would share them with you on the blog!
First up are my top picks for The 5 Best Dreamy IGers. You can find me at:
A Peruvian art director and photographer, Ines Ybarra‘s mix of people, places, and things will make you feel like you’re floating through a misty dreamscape.
Camila is a Colombia-born, Salt Lake City-based photographer who shoots for Free People. Her feed is a blend of muted pink, pearl, and pale blue photos of landscapes and fashion. One scroll through her feed will have you wishing you wanting to take an indie-gypsy-camping trip of your own.
Amanda Koch is an Instagrammer from Seattle (woop woop, hometown pride!). Her photos are of her travels all over but have that cloudy muted feel of rainy Washington state. A good mix of artistic selfies, nature, and architecture, you’ll love scrolling through her account.
Think American Apparel meets creepy doll under the glow of a pink convenience store sign at night. Yeah, that sounds about right. There isn’t much to find out about the girl behind the account, but that’s what adds to her mystique.
You may know Olivia Bee as being the uber young photographer from Portland, Oregon but she’s grown up and moved to New York since her sudden burst into the spotlight. Her photography bounces back and forth between dreamy and nightmare-y, and neither end of the spectrum disappoints.
Who are some of your favorite dreamy Instagrammers? Comment them below or let me know on IG:
A couple weeks ago, an awesome Instagrammer I follow, @thebohosocialite, ran a giveaway with California Scrub Co.…and I won! I wanna tell you guys a bit about my experience with this giveaway because I think it’s a great testament to the awesome fashion blogging community.
First, I was super excited to win this giveaway because, let’s face it, who ever expects to win anything through an IG giveaway? My package with the California Scrub Co. body scrub came and I could tell right away that the postal service had done something baaad with the package. It was dripping oil and delivered in a plastic bag (always a good sign, right?).
I let The Boho Socialite know that the package came but the product was destroyed and I accepted it as a lost. It’s a giveaway after all, and the post office was the one that messed up. It was no big deal. To my surprise, she told me she would see if she could have a replacement scrub sent to me. The awesome people over at California Scrub Co. told me they’d have another one sent out to me and within a few days, I received another (perfect condition) scrub in the mail!
The point of my long story is that the sweetness of these fashion bloggers is real and it was awesome to see how far above and beyond both parties went in order to get the scrub to me. I want to thank both The Boho Socialite and California Scrub Co. for their kindness and after finally having been able to try out the Spicy Chai scrub they sent me, I can say I’m in love!
Also make sure to check out California Scrub Co. on their site and on Instagram for an equally bohemian vibe. I love their scrubs because they’re organic (so my skin is happy) and they use upcycled coffee beans, 100% recycled paper for their labels, and use glass jars, not plastic (so the environment is happy, too!).
Ciao for now,
