Favorite Instagram Accounts I Follow

19 Sep

Hey guys!

In addition to The Gift of Gab, I also have an IG account that’s dedicated to my lifestyle. At times you’ll find me promoting my blog posts, YouTube videos, and products that I’m loving at the moment. If you don’t follow my Instagram, be sure to at @classysassg.

I have wonderful followers, but I’m also happy to state I follow accounts that serve different purposes, but I feel have the best content out there. It’s not often I grow to love an IG account, so you’ll discover the ones I discuss in this post, are a few that are worth the follow.

Humor

thingsbitchessay

@thingsbitchessay is a parody account, dedicated to all memes meant to empower or expose the “HBIC”. A lot of the time, I can relate to this account’s posts, and I know a lot of girls would. It’s all in good fun, and the best part? It never portrays a woman as “weak” or a “damsel”. I often find that IG accounts dedicated to memes can be sexist in that it only shows the “man’s side” of things. Who doesn’t love an account like @thingsbitchessay that basically screams “I am woman, hear me roar.”

Travel

tipsyontravel

@tipsyontravel is an IG account based on blogger Leanne’s life. She records all of her travel adventures through stunning visual photography, along with detailed descriptions. I only follow travel and lifestyle IG accounts when their content is high quality, because who doesn’t get drawn in by sight? Also, photo’s that make you feel you are there in the moment, are the ones that transcend meaning most to me.

olivia.lines

@olivia.lines will take you into her world, through her eyes. The contrast and saturation of her photographs, really make for a unique IG quality that not many accounts strive for because they don’t know that’s exactly what their viewers want to see. To be able to view a day in the life, whether it’s traveling to a foreign country, sitting and having your meal, or taking a photograph of street lights, this IG account’s authenticity makes it extremely fascinating!

Food

wineandfoodblog

@wineandfoodblog IG account is based off of the blog, Wine, Food and Friends, which is based around different recipes, that are categorized by each meal course. The IG account and blog owner, Lindsay, captures the essence of her recipes in her IG photographs, and usually focus on one item per photo. I find this technique appeals most to me because simplicity in staging is often all you need to reel your audience in for more.

themiamimenu

@themiamimenu is an IG account dedicated to photographs of delicious foods, whether it’s homemade or from a restaurant in the Miami area. I live in South Florida, so whenever I see accounts dedicated to promoting foods in the area, I’m all for the follow. I also love to drool over amazing food photographs, especially if they are fattening just to get my visual fix. Then I pinch myself, and back on my diet I am again. No harm done, but I also get an idea of what I can indulge in come my cheat meal night.

oliviathevegan

@oliviathevegan is dedicated to veganism and the foods that the account owner, Olivia, eats on a daily basis. Her vegan bowl pictures always have me dreaming about eating them. I’m personally not a vegan, but I’m always on the hunt for new healthy recipes to incorporate into my diet, and she has the best ideas for just that! She makes veganism look easy, flawless and most importantly – delicious.

Beauty

beautybykat____

@beautybykat____ showcases her work of looks created on her YouTube makeup channel, along with product breakdowns of these looks on her IG account. I love how creative Kat gets, and is always coming up with amazing cut-crease eye makeup looks. She’s a natural artist, and her IG account expresses that point across to her audience. Plus, she’s a total sweetheart!

christinaschiccorner

@christinaschiccorner is a beauty blogger who like me, promotes her blog posts often on her IG account. Christina has the best posts based all around beauty and lifestyle. From hair, to makeup, to skincare, she’s got it down to a science. She takes awesome photographs, and has a nice clean theme for her IG account. Plus, she’s on top of her posting game. Consistency is something I admire, because it reminds me so much of my philosophy when it comes to blogging.

maquillajeitup

@maquillageitup IG can help you to discover new beauty products! She does IG reviews, and goes in-depth on her descriptions. Not to mention, the makeup meme’s she makes are hilarious. Demo videos are also available on her account, which makes it a convenient way to preview the hottest makeup available on today’s market, before making that purchase!

Lifestyle

inspire_me_home_decor

@inspire_me_home_decor Interior Design Content Creator, Farah Merhi, outdid herself with this IG account. I’m obsessed with this one, because it inspires the interior designer in you. You’ll want to switch things around in your home, or day dream about a future décor style in the future for it. This IG account features home decors from many different other interior design accounts, which helps other decorators gain exposure. It’s definitely an account you’ll be scrolling through for over 30 minutes, and wonder where the time has gone.

ayeshacurry

@ayeshacurry is the famous GSW Steph Curry’s wife, but she doesn’t stop there. She engages in blogging, vlogging, and even has a cookbook out. Ayesha even has a new home food delivery service called Gather, where ingredients are sent to your door each week, and you can create meals according to her own recipes for your family. She’s got a lot of things going on, and her IG account shows that. She posts about everything lifestyle, and she’s got herself together, which I’ve always admired.

oliviapearson

@oliviapearson is on the show WAGS on the E Channel, but long before she was a reality star, she was just “IG famous”. I’ll admit, this is one of my guilty pleasure follows, but the good thing about Liv, is that she runs a blog and YouTube channel with her cousin Natalie. They both create content catered to high-end products, and have great video and photography skills. Not sure how much of the content on Liv’s IG is her own, but it’s an entertaining account to follow, none the less.

What are some of your favorite Instagram accounts to follow? Check these out when you have the time, and enjoy your time scrolling!

Thanks for reading, and hope you’re all having a wonderful week!

Weekend Chit Chat: Décor & Dining

11 Jul

Hey guys!

Recently, I had a weekend full of back to back events, which included social gatherings, as well as dining experiences. I was fortunate to draw inspiration from them, and build this post together for your guys! If you’re ever in the West Miami area, and you’re a fan of experimenting with different cuisines, I highly recommend Aromas Del Peru.

White Sangria

My favorite drink there has to be the White Sangria, where they dice up fresh fruits into a mixture of white wine with juice, along with some dry ice for special effects (video of the drink is up on my Instagram @ClassySassG). Though you can select from the menu some delicious choices, my family and I much prefer the buffet special, which runs from 12pm – 3pm at the location in Coral Gables. I’m not sure if this special applies to their other locations in South Florida, as their website doesn’t mention it.

This includes all you can eat for one person, for $19.99. If you’re not familiar with Peruvian food, it’s a unique take on Spanish, Asian, and Native Peruvian influences all into one category. I thoroughly enjoy eating Peruvian, and here’s a peak at what my plate looked like at Aromas Del Peru recently.

Peruvian Buffet

Shifting restaurants, I also indulged in the Cheesecake Factory! I feel like whatever item your order on their menu, you can’t be disappointed. I myself haven’t tried everything on the menu, but when I do go, I choose an item I either have come to love every time I go there, or something completely new. I’ve tried everything from sandwiches, to lettuce wraps, to enchiladas. I had their steak tacos, and my mouth was in heaven.

The steak wasn’t hard to chew, and the small corn tortillas along with the side of rice with black beans made for the perfect Mexican dish. What I like about the Cheesecake Factory is that there is something for everyone on the menu. If you’re on a diet, there’s something for you. If you want a burger, they have that too. If you want an upscale piece of fish, it’s there at your request.

Cheesecake Factory Steak Tacos

You can never go wrong with a glass or two of Prosecco, so at Cheesecake that was my choice of drink. I’m not the type to order a Pina Colada unless I’m on vacation or in the hot sun at the beach. Prosecco is my favorite sparkling wine, and the brand varies. I’m no beverage connoisseur, but for a long time I couldn’t tell the difference between sparkling wine and champagne. The biggest difference is that champagne does not go stale if left in the bottle for too long, while sparkling wine does.

Proseco

Finally, onto two little decoration inspirations I got while at different baby shower events. This particular decoration with the anchor details, helps if you’re on a budget, and the availability of baby’s breathe is usually easy to find. I liked the sailor themed mason jar with the flower pebbles at the bottom, because the detailing was simple, yet very crafty and creative.

I love DIY center pieces! The combination of daisies with baby’s breathe, along with sliced lemons in a watered vase, make for a beautiful center piece in the summer time. This was a Pinterest idea (as they usually are), and its ideas like these that make time and effort, along with care go a long way when putting a DIY idea together creatively.

Table Top Arrangements

That’s it for my chit chat post today. I hope you’ve enjoyed the read, and have a great day!
