Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday with family and friends! Today, I wanted to share some information on an app that I recently discovered. As 2013 came to a close, my Instagram feed was filled with “the best of 2013″ thanks to Statigr.am. If you visited the site, and scrolled over to “Snapshot” you are able to see your best moments on Instagram from 2013. This neat little video combines the most popular moments from 2013 (the ones with the most comments). I thought it was cute and a nice way to end the new year. […] Continue reading →

I’ve kept quiet for quite some time now and after two years of this phenomenon that I’d like to call “the miraculous rise in Instagram followers,” I’ve decided to give you the honest truth about it. If it wasn’t happening so often, I would probably just keep it all to myself, but since this seems to have become a common trend in 2013,  I think it’s time to shed a little light on the whole thing. Instagram is filled with photography rockstars. There are travelers that take the most extraordinary photos and make you feel as if you’re traveling with […] Continue reading →

Last year on Cyber Monday a tradition began when I logged into CanvasPop for the first time and ordered my very first Instagram canvas print. I was not sponsored in anyway, I didn’t receive any sort of coupon code from the company, it was something that I had always wanted. A framed collage using some of our favourite Instagram photos of the year. This year, I did the same thing, however I focused more on our travels as a family. The reason why I order on Cyber Monday is because they usually have a great offer (40% off) which then […] Continue reading →

We have definitely seen how hotels, resorts and businesses in the travel industry are beginning to take Instagram seriously. It’s the ideal social media network for travel, fashion and anything with a visual aspect. Turns out a company has taken it to the next step! the new 1888 Hotel in Sydney, Australia will be the world’s first-ever ‘Instagram Hotel’ offering plenty of photo opps on site and a free night’s stay to those who have over 10,000 followers . The hotel has recycled timber desks, freestanding bath tubs, an iPad for each room and in-room media hubs so that you […] Continue reading →

So, let’s talk about Instagram video for a second. When it first came out, I was overjoyed and excited to eliminate Vine from my social profile, however I still have yet to do so and don’t post nearly as many videos as I originally thought I would. Why? It’s a completely different dynamic. Video posted on Vine is a completely different entity compared to video posted on Instagram. First off, Instagram is my happy place. This is where I scroll through beautiful images taken by friends, colleagues and people that I admire. It’s calming and inspirational. When it comes to […] Continue reading →

I’m heavily involved in many social media outlets but the one that I’m the most passionate about is the same one that I spend the most time on (go figure!). Earlier this week, I published a post on Disney Baby where I explain why I believe my smartphone has made me a better mom. Each and every one of those photos featured in the slideshow, were taken from my iPhone and posted on Instagram. Instagram is where I share my day-to-day activities, design, fashion, food and finds that I may come across, and of course my travels – in real […] Continue reading →
