There's not one social media channel that I am O B S E S S E D with more than Instagram (sorry, Pinterest, but you're a close second!). For creatives like myself, it fuels you with crazy energy, ideas, concepts, projects and life lessons that you just want to take on and accomplish immediately! And there are a handful of brands and bloggers that I follow religiously. Take a look at my 6 favorite IG accounts:

 @TravelNoire: For curious travelers with a serious case of wanderlust, TravelNoire gives first person accounts of the best places to see, where to eat and what to do when jetsetting around the world!

 @BloggerStreetStyle:  A fan account of some of the best personal style bloggers and sites on the Web. Lots of visual inspiration for fashion lovers!

 @Parisinfourmonths:  Carin Olsson's digital diary of her life in Paris. I'm planning a trip to the City of Light soon and this IG account is my virtual tour guide.

@BlackGirlsWhoBlog: A fan site dedicated to connecting and introducing bloggers of color. It's great to see such a supportive and uplifting community!

 @TBoyAfficianado: Another "inspired by" IG account dedicated to spotlighting some of the best visual interpretations of the good life!

@TheNewPotato: Who doesn't love exquisitely captured food photos? Sisters Laura and Danielle Kosann do an amazing job posting photos of great food you'll want to try, and sprinkling in a great mix of fashion and lifestyle photos!

So those are my fave 6. Do you have a list of IG accounts I should be following? Let's chat by leaving a comment below!

brains of the outfit, blog,

I'm still fiddling with the decor in our master bedroom. Over the weekend I made a stop in at Marshall's to see what's new on the shelves and immediately fell head over heels in love with this Mr. & Mrs. Pillow by Storehouse Furniture for only $14. Do you guys remember Storehouse Furniture? Well I sure do! Storehouse had the most amazing contemporary pieces at such good prices. There were a few locations here in Atlanta, but the company went out of business back in the early 00s. I'm not sure if they are still making inventory just for box stores like TJs and Marshall's, but I'm always so delighted to run across something from them and always feel the need to purchase.

Have you recently purchased something from Marshall's that you love? Let me know by leaving a comment below!

Can you believe it's August already? I feel like summer just started and the kiddies are making their way back to school today here in Georgia. However, the beginning of a new school year always feels like a fresh start. My new venture with Whimsy is keeping me plenty busy, excited and focused on the month(s) ahead. (I also have an exciting new collaboration coming up, which I'll be sharing details on really soon!)

Overall, August feels promising. What are your goals/plans for the month?
