As you know, I’m a huge fan of Instagram and tend to use it constantly during my travels. Last year I put a post together listing some of my favourite Instagram gift ideas that use your photos to create incredible gifts and products. Today, I’m taking a more fashionable approach. I’ve been a huge fan of Buy My Crap on Etsy. They create some of the most unique pieces using the photos that you send prior. The funky bangle pictured above is made from resin, as are the ring and watch shown below. I love how the possibilities for these […] Continue reading →

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 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 →


If I had to guess as to what the most instagrammed location in the USA was, I would say, New York City, without missing a beat. Turns out I would be wrong. The most instagrammed area in the United States is not a state, nor is it a city or town – it’s an attraction. Any […] Continue reading →
