The blog world is a friendly one and that internet neighbourliness has spilled over into my favourite cyber hangout, Instagram. If this smart phone app was smart they'd host an annual awards show for their photo sharers. A red carpet event that'd rival the Oscars, a line up of talent that would demand paparazzi, after parties and a celebrity host that didn't make me 'Anne Hathaway nauseous' [sorry Le Mis fans]. They'd call it The Instagrammies and put me in charge of nominations:
I'd take my job very seriously; these would be my first EIGHT [which also happens to be my favourite number and a stood up infinity sign]:
@allkindsoflovely - Dajana is as cool as her name [impossible I know] - Insta's very own fun, foodie fashionista #triplethreat
@caitharper- someone get this girl a blog stat. Caitlin is my 'real life' amiga, as in we actually meet face to face over london fogs and dream up ways to make creativity a career.
@justbellablog - Christine is like my personal cheerleader and source of daily inspiration including the 2012 Insta-yearbook that I totally copied.
@andreahanki - I'm telling you everything this woman touches turns to awesome. Andrea is like crack to me; if you haven't seen her photography, get out from under that rock and go check her out, seriously.
@sarahmycc - Sarah is on a whole other level. dollars to donuts [or for my Canadian readers toonies to timbits] you've seen this mama on Pinterest, her pins are everywhere - I'm like famous by association.
@amarabarra - this lady is incredible and that's not a word I throw around lightly. need more convincing? check out her hashtag lzcabin - a storage container turned weekend getaway?! amazing. Lawny is quite possibly the best bargain hunter in all the land and definitely worthy of this nomination.
@cindyconfettisparkle - Cindy got the world by the horns - good genes, kind heart, some crazy cute little blonde-haired kids, a lovely home and one successful online party shop. I can't wait to meet her in real life and perhaps absorb some of her awesomeness.
@hardydanielle - I bet you a pair of Toms stitchouts that you know at least one person with an Urbanwalls' wall - Danielle's vinyl decals are hotter than the Okanagan sun #32celsiusandclimbing and I can't decide what I love more, her Instagram feed or blog? I think it's a tie and I'll definitely be stalking both [by the hour] as she nears her due date with bebe #3.
who would make it onto your Instagrammy list? please don't feel obligated to say me @saigewisdom [although I may give a prize to the first person to say so... kidding... or am I?]
stay tuned for my next 8 nominations coming to a post near you*
*probably tomorrow or even later on today.
