Lets Talk Instagram
When did you snap your first instagram?
I stumbled across instagram a few years ago. I loved the idea of the app and being able to change the photo filters.. I really didn't know too much about it...except that it was fun. I think the first pic I posted was of my dog.
What do you love most about the community?
Instagram is constantly inspiring me.. so I love that about it. I have met some great people and connections through it and I love that everyone is so supportive with their comments!
What inspires your images?
Usually my pics are inspired by cute outfits, fun props, pretty lighting and fresh flowers. Those few things just keep me going!
How would you best describe your creative style?
My creative style..well.. I'm a virgo. I make lists..lots of lists.. and I like the details...all the details. I also have a side of me where I'm a little spontaneous.. and just run with an idea or decide one morning... I'm just going to do a window display or do a style shoot! I like to mix it up and have fun getting creative!
Does Instagram act as a platform for your business or blog or is it just for fun?
Even though I started out using Instagram for fun.. it's definitely become a platform for my business. I am such a visual person.. so it's an excellent way to show Blush goodies & creating fun vignettes!
