10 of My Favorite Instagrammers

@mylifesatravelmovie Alyssa is a female traveler who takes the most amazing trips. Ahem. Alone! No she is not rich. No she does not have a sugar daddy. She works it. So, lose the 'it must be nice' comments.

@thesavoyflea A Modern Antiquary in Chicago - Cool stuff (I adore the name too)

@jameskivior.pretentioushome - hilarious when he does his 'drunk dusting' videos

@hfbyrne - not only is she solid, (barre) but her healthy food actually looks good (recipes included)

@drawbertson - Artist bon vivant of the fashion world. His twins are pretty cute too, whom he markets relentlessly #buythemnothing

@chadtucket - hilarious spoof on the Nantucket/Greenwich/Marblehead Ivy's. Yes they do exist and they're pretty damn proud.

@carrieoutdoors - according to Carrie, not a photographer, just an adventurer. Subliminally made me want to visit the Canadian Rockies...and we're going!

@aspenthemountainpup - No words

@decadesfurniture - So Florida consignment shop that carries pure gold. Not to be missed if you are in Ft Lauderdale

@wanderlustwandermust - and last but certainly not least....this is yet another female solo traveler who proves there is no need for monetary wealth to travel the world. (and she works with me!)  5 separate trips this year squeezed into three weeks vacation.  Beautiful photographer too!! Norway, Portugal, Greece, Vegas and Italy.  Bang!

So I guess I'm late to the party, but bed in the bag is over?  According to the design mavens I follow on Instagram, it's mix and match all the way baby.  I'm trying.  Anyway, every single sheet set I buy at the discount stores (you know the ones) shrink, tear and look like junk after two washes.  I broke down and bought the Marriott Sheet set in white for $150 Marriott Hotel Bedding, and they seem pretty nice.

Then I was at Restoration Hardware recently and their Linen Bedding was on sale.  So in the cart went 2 solid linen shams and 1 lumbar pillow for the bed.  I have to admit it looks really cool to me. Mixed and matched.

Wait!  RH OUTLET I mean.  Of course, who shops retail?  Um.  No one!  Every time I visit Wrentham mall it's a must to just walk through this place.  Most of the stuff is sillillie priced, yes that's word...but sometimes, oh my! Such a deal!


Donald Robertson is a fashion Instagram star whose late in life artistry brought him fame, fortune and a gazillion IG followers.  Credit for my blog page image goes to him.  He has relationships with Estee Lauder and Bergdorf Goodman and all the rest of the fashion world.  His art and musing are laugh out loud worthy and right on target.  Follow!!  He's a marketing genius.  You will see!

Oh yeah follow me too!

Animal Prints

I happen to love a nice animal print.  What is amazing to me is that I am always on the lookout for a good leopard print pillow and they are NOWHERE to be found.  Finally on IG I saw one, asked for the source, and the author very nicely forwarded me the shop.  This, in velvet is 20X20 $83 @ Little Design Co. Leopard and animal prints in general are a basic.  One goes a long way.  A pop so to speak.
