Five Instagram Accounts to Follow Now // Foodie


Continuing on with my Monday instragram series here are some of my favourite foodie accounts. By sharing just five accounts I know I am missing some great ones- so let me know your favs in the comments.

1. Oliver & Bonacini (@oliverbonacini)
Obviously I am very partial to Oliver & Bonacini, and I love following along on instagram to see the amazing dishes the Chef’s are creating and staying in touch with company updates and events.
2. Jamie Oliver (@jamieoliver)
My love of Jamie is very well documented in this blog. His instragram is fantastic and feels really personal. He is constantly posting, with long comments and sharing pictures of what’s going on at his restaurants and in his personal life. It is clear he is proud of his employees and what they are accomplishing, and loves his family!
3. Hummingbird Highh (@hummingbirdhigh)
Who doesn’t love a dessert and baking blog transferred over to instagram? Michelle shows off her baking and photography skills, and adds some personal photos as well. (including ones of her cat)
4. Smitten Kitchen (@smittenkitchen)
Smitten Kitchen always has me drooling. Lots of traditional food for the soul with a modern twist. The rich colours from instagram translate to rich flavour when I follow the recipes.
5. Half Baked Harvest (@halfbakedharvest)
This is the foodie instagram account for amazing and high quality pictures. Everything looks so bright and delicious, Tieghan is not only a talented cook, but also a talented photographer.

Oh- and me? You can follow me @aleyestok! Do you have an instagram account? Let me know in the comments and I’d love to check it out!

Crave or Save: D’Orsay Pumps


Now that we’ve been in the UK for a couple months my shopping lists are starting to switch from dollars to pounds. Since pounds are worth considerably more, I will definitely be going with the save version Banana Republic pumps… now I just need to find an excuse to run into London so I can pick them up. What would you choose?

5 Instagram Accounts to Follow Now // Interior Design


Last Monday we looked at some amazing instagram accounts from lifestyle bloggers, and to continue to the series here are some of my fav picks for interior design! I hope these accounts help to inspire your home decor.

1. Apartment Therapy (@apartmenttherapy)
Confession- When I am driving or walking around at night and I see a house with lights on, I totally look in. Following Apartment Therapy on instragram is amazing because its the same idea, but far less creepy!
2. Design Sponge (@designsponge)
In my mind Design Sponge can do know wrong. Their instragram account really captures the aesthetic of the blog, sharing all things beautiful. (including puppies)
3. Design Love Fest (@designlovefest)
Design Love Fest absolutely brightens up my instragram feed. Bree has an eye for all things amazing so to look through that lens on instragram is completely inspiring.
4. West Elm (@westelm)
Showcases the best of their collection, and often has giveaways! Wahoo!
5. Sarah Richardson (sarahrichardsondesign)
I can’t believe I have never mentioned Sarah Richardson on this blog before. She is an amazing Canadian designer made famous by HGTV Canada shows such as Sarah’s House and Sarah’s Cottage and shares her amazing behind the scenes photos on instagram. Also she is doing a collaboration with Target (yay!!!)
