If you’re IG obsessed like I am, you have probably seen that Instagram’s app update last week included the ability to now post photos in portrait and landscape – an update to the square photo parameters that the app has had since it’s launch. This is a feature that will change the Instagram game by allowing for less stringent cropping and some flexibility with creativity. You will start to see (if you haven’t already) some different sized photos when scrolling through your feed, however, these non-square photos will be cropped and centered when shown on your profile feed. The gram must be on a roll with updates, because yesterday they launched five additional features. You can now share photos directly with friends (rather than tagging them in a photo that you want them to see), create groups for direct messages, use super-sized emojis, reply with photos, and have threaded messages for DMs, rather than needing…

With tropical storms brewing, it’s been raining every day in Florida for the last couple of weeks. Pair that rain with the summer humidity, and I am definitely craving some cooler temperatures! I broke out some of my favorite worn-in ankle booties and paired them with some distressed denim and a tank, hoping to get into the Fall spirit. I’m not looking forward to the day that I have to replace these booties when they get to the end of their life, as they are SO comfortable and can really work for all seasons. I started browsing a bit, and found some similar options that I’ll have to keep in mind. Take a peek:

Everyone, listen up! Old Navy is having a MAJ sale today, giving an ADDITIONAL 40% off (including clearance!). With my obsession of ClassPass classes, I am doing more workout classes than ever before, and I cannot keep up with the laundry! I am in desperate need of more workout gear, and I love Old Navy’s activewear. Here are some of the items I just snagged (note: the sale prices below are BEFORE the additional 40% off that you will get using code: YESPLEASE). I also couldn’t help but pick up a few more casual daytime pieces (shown in the last row).

I had such a fun weekend getaway in Key West! I road tripped for a long weekend with a bunch of friends, and the weekend included cocktails, sun, snorkeling, delicious food, and exploring some Key West sites!

To get prepared for our The Blogger Meetup Miami Meet + Sweet event, fellow Co-founder Danielle (who blogs over at Shikshin) and I were so excited by the offer from the INGLOT store in Aventura to get our makeup done for our event! The Aventura store is beautiful – it’s so bright and colorful, it’s definitely like being a kid in a candy store! My makeup was done by Laura, and she was AMAZING! She did an incredible job, even on our tight time crunch! I am also totally in love with the foundation she used – it lasted through the Miami heat all day and night. It was the HD Perfect Coverup Foundation (I was shade 76). Thanks to the amazing team and INGLOT and the sweet ladies in the Aventura store for our beautiful looks!
