It's Fri-yay! I thought I'd do a little #fbf to our Fall/Winter 18/19 photoshoot and a #fridayintoduction all in one! 😉 For all my new followers, I'm Lysandra, Owner/Designer of this here fashion brand, geekchicfashion (that's me on the left). What you should know about me:⠀ - I love to be comfortable, yet look put together (note my photoshoot look: I was rocking my Column Wide Leg Pants and basic fitted white tee)...which is the entire reason I started this brand⠀ .⠀ - I believe in body positivity! I hear soo many comments from women about their bodies and what they "can't" wear. Hear this: you can wear whatever you put on your body, just rock it with confidence! I carry sizes S-3XL in most styles.⠀ .⠀ - Before I was the designer of this independent fashion brand, I worked at Burt's Bees in Marketing. I have my MBA and love business, but particularly marketing. I've also worked at a Craft Brewery and on an Olympic Bid Committee!⠀ .⠀ - Everything in my collection (save the graphic tees) is handmade by ME. Yep, read that again...I make it all. Maybe one day my biz will be big enough that I need to hire sewist or outsource manufacturing locally, but for now it's all me.⠀ .⠀ Tell me what else you want to know about me. I'm an open book!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #psimadethis #mycreativebiz #makersbiz #imadeyourclothes #mompreneur #femaleentrepreneur #makersmovement #makersgonnamake #creativehappylife #creativelifehappylife #ambcrafty #supportmakers #cylcollective #craftsposure #creatorlane #favehandmade #thehandmadeparade #makersvillage #helloimhandmade #handmadeloves #studioscenes #blackownedbusiness #supportblackbusinesses #buyblack #blkcreatives #empoweringwomen #ladyhustle
Happy Friday! It’s a rainy cold day here and my plans tonight include Netflix, a down throw and a #FridayIntoduction because it’s been a while. Here are 5 things you might not know about me.😊 . 💟I love to travel abroad and I love going to grocery stores wherever I go.🥑 ☮️I have an unnatural fascination with prisons and funeral homes. 🤷‍♀️ ✝️I thrive on structure and it takes me a minute to get used to new things. 🌟 ☪️I love to go to the movies by myself and I never miss the previews.🎬 🕉I moved every 3 years growing up and I don’t ever want to move again. 🏡 🌀Bonus: My super power is that I can remember the lyrics to just about any song I know. 🎵 . Tell me something I don’t know about you. #fridayintroductions PC: @earthmamatribe
It’s been awhile since I’ve done an introduction so I thought a #fridayintoduction was in order! . We are the St. Clair family. Anthony is a writer (a new book, Wander is out today!) and Jodie (me 😉) is a violin teacher. Connor is 6 and Aster is 3. . I knew we would homeschool when Connor was around 2 years old. We were enjoying our time together so much and preschool wasn’t really an option for us so we decided to do preschool at home. When it was time to start kindergarten we enrolled in a homeschool charter school and it’s been a great fit for our family. . Five fun facts: 1. We are about to start a big house renovation and it means I’ll have my own teaching studio at home! 2. Anthony and I split homeschooling duties. Since I work in the afternoon, he gets to often take the kids to classes. 3. We recently took a trip to Kauai. We were celebrating my 20 year anniversary of remission from osteosarcoma. It’s actually been 22 years now though. 4. Even though Anthony loves to come up with names (he is a writer) I was the one who knew our children’s names. We didn’t find out the sex of either child, but I felt very strongly about the names both times. 5. We have plans to do a year of traveling in the future. We would like our kiddos to be a little older though. . So glad to be connecting with other families here! Introduce yourself in the comments. ❤️ ~~~~~~ #homeschool #homeschooling #homeeducation #homelearning #homeschoollife #thisishomeschool #homeschooldays #homeschoolmom #homeschooler #lifelonglearner #homeschoolers #homeschoolersofinstagram #homeschoolersrock #homeschoolingbyheart #learningathome #homeschoolkids #learningathome #childledlearning #worldschool #worldschooling #roadschool #roadschooling #eclectichomeschooling #secularhomeschool #secularhomeschooling
Happy #fridayintoduction ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Jacqueline! My favorite fall activity is tailgating with my friends and family. I drink probably too many glasses of iced black coffee and/or hot tea a day and could eat popcorn for every meal. I enjoy being outside and love being by the water- lakes in the Summer and oceans in the Winter. If I could plan a wedding anywhere in the world it would be off the coast of Italy or Greece! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Happy Friday! Life has been pretty hectic lately with us moving from NC to Rochester; there have been hard things, like leaving an amazing community in Winston Salem, but so many good things at the same time. An exciting new chapter in this journey of life. 🏡 . I thought I’d do a short #fridayintoduction for all my new followers and Rochester folk that don’t know me yet! My family - me, my husband, 1 year old son + crazy bloodhound - just moved to Rochester after living in NC for 4 years. I grew up here, so coming back home near old friends and family has been great. 💕 . I love photographing everyday moments that make your life so special. From baby bumps to newborn yawns, silly sibling laughter to couples in love. Nothing makes me happier than documenting these moments in time for you to look back on and remember. 📷 . Although I grew up in Rochester, it still feels like I’m “new” here. I’d love to meet over coffee, chat, have a play date or collaborate! Please reach out, and I can’t wait to see what amazing things are to come!
I know I’m late, but it’s still Friday somewhere!! #fridayintoduction Lol Five fun facts about me 1. I love love to travel! I’m very blessed that my business is not in one location. We shoot weddings all across the US and one or two international every year. In June my kids spend some time with their grandparents so it’s like my summer break and I take a week to go somewhere lol Next year Thailand and Hong Kong! 2. I sometimes cry when I edit weddings lol I’m very blessed to be able to witness God’s gift to us, LOVE! You would think after five years I would be over it lol, but honestly, it reaffirms my belief in Gods love for us! It’s a beautiful thing to witness! 3. I love Thai food to the point I have convinced my friends to go to Thailand next year with me. lol 😂 I really want to go, don't get me wrong lol The food is just a bonus! I’m low-key trying to find a cooking class for us while we are there lol 4. I think I’ve said this before but do you know I love crab legs!?! Like to the point I thought I had a problem lol Every year growing up my family would have a crab leg dinner for New Years and now I eat them all year round! 5. I gave up on photography three times lol, and I’m glad I did! Long story short I knew what I wanted to do but didn’t have the confidence to do it... it wasn’t until I took control of my life that I started my business and the rest is history!
This is me playing around with some watercolours 👋🏻🌈🎨 It’s a while since I made #fridayintroductions so I just wanted to say hi and tell a little bit about me☺️ I live in Kolding, Denmark together with my two sons👩‍👦‍👦 I love to paint, mainly watercolours, l just love to see colours floating into each other. I’m educated as a graphic designer, I have worked as a graphic designer and surface pattern designer, and now somehow everything points in a more artistic way👩🏻‍🎨 I do have a dayjob, but besides that I’m designing surface patterns and working on original artwork💙💙💙 And some random facts😉 I love coffee and chocolate☕️🍫 And fruits and berries🍓🍏🍎 I really enjoy that I have a lot of apples and plums in my garden right now. I like to read books, but nowadays I mainly listen to podcasts and audiobooks🎧 I think this was all☺️ Have a nice weekend☀️ - - - - - - - - #fridayintoduction #surfacepatterndesign #creativeentrepeneur #ermergingartist #makersmovement #artistsofinstagram #surfaceprint #art_we_inspire #iamadanishartist #showyourwork #femaleartist #artlicensing #carveouttimeforart #danishart #flowarts #artistworkspace #artstudio #creativityfound #creativecommunity #createeveryday #creativeworkspace #artiststudio #makersgonnamake #communityovercompetition #insanelyinspiredinstagram #textiledesign #cylcollective #karinapetersen #karinapetersendesign
Hi all!! Happy Friday! Thought I’d do a #fridayintoduction since it’s been a while! My name is Taryn, and while I initially started with Instagram to share style tips to help women look and feel their best, lately, it’s been more about our newest life change. We’ve moved to #dubai !🇦🇪 Things to share about me right now: 1️⃣ Moving to the other side of the world is like sensory overload! There is so much here in Dubai that is familiar (the main language is English, the stores, the goods available, and it’s a melting pot of about 200 different cultures!) there is plenty that reminds me I’m in a different country. Which makes it that much more exciting! 2️⃣This pic was taken in our apartment, which isn’t very exciting; but it’s GREAT lighting 😆👌🏻. I took it on a whim this morning. I was certain this high and tight ponytail would give me a massive headache by noon; but great news, I was wrong! Since I CANNOT wear my hair down right now, this style will be on repeat 💁🏻‍♀️ PS, super cute top is from @hm and stripes are BIG for Fall 👌🏻want to add the illusion of height? I can’t be the only one!! 🤣Go for vertical stripes on your bottoms, while this wide collared top with horizontal stripes flatters my shoulders and pairs perfectly with my go to denim. 3️⃣Thank you for all the great comments about my Instastories!! Isn’t technology AMAZING, that we can all be so connected and share experiences in almost real time, is literally the coolest! I’m so happy to have you all “here” with me!! I promise that fashion / style tips will be back, life is a tad shuffled right now; but until then, you’ll enjoy parts of our everyday, as it happens! I do plan to write some blog posts about our time in Dubai, so if you aren’t subscribed to www.method39.com, I’d love it if you did!! I promise it won’t flood your inbox and it’s another way to keep us close, even though we are half a world apart 💕💕 #method39 #livingabroad #relocating #styletips #instablogger #selfie #styleblogger #pursuepretty #expecttheunexpected
Today's #fridayintoduction brought to you by the #wifelife files! - College Intramurals Volleyball. That's where I met my handsome hubby, Micah, during my senior year of college. We had gone to the same grade school and high school, but never met each other before! - I was in nursing school, and it was like, SO hard guys. I had officially sworn off boys, because who has time for anything at all during nursing school!? - Of course, that's when I met him. He jogged up to me, handed me the ball, and asked me "are you going to jump serve?".. No lie. I legit remember those being his first words to me. and I melllllteddd y'all. Not because of what he said, but because the handsome-est dude alive just jogged over to me and spoke to me!! - Fast forward to a girls trip to Texas with my step mom and little cousin. I told them, despite the fact that he never even asked for my number, or to go on a date, I was sure I was going to marry him. - Fast forward to our first date, and I was so nervous I was sure I'd rather live a life alone than go through all the emotions I had right then! #amiright !? - I'm so glad I went on that date. & the many after. Because here we are. 5 years of marriage later. + two precious babies. + I can't imagine loving him any more than I do! —————————————————————- #azphotography #trp #trisharosephotography #peoriaphotographer #azphotographer #arizonaphotographer #phoenixphotographer #scottsdalephotographer #northphoenixphotographer #blog #blogger #momblog #photographer #blogtog #wifelife
Since I gained like 400 new followers yesterday (hiiiiiii 👋🏼) I decided to do a #fridayintoduction a few days early bc 1. I make the rules and 2. I wanna make sure you know who you’re following. So hi. I’m Abi. I’m not here on IG to win a popularity contest of pretty photos and perfect content, although admittedly, i love both. I’m here, mostly, to make White people uncomfortable in their privilege. I believe #blacklivesmatter and will be stand alongside anyone fighting injustice always. I am sick to death of people posting about social justice issues once they trend, and ignoring important conversations and dialog in everyday life. I was raised in church but I believe the church (read the white church in general) is failing people of color. I believe in justice for #niawilson and that the News stations and papers that post racially biased photos in an attempt to paint the narrative for their stories should be boycotted. ( Read :: White murderer = high school photos + Black victim = any photo they can find that paints them in a bad light.) I’m also sick and fucking tried of police being able to apprehend horrible people without any violence and killing Black kids for running from them at traffic stops. I teach my children real history and they know current events. They are also taught to hold their hands up if I’m pulled over bc my 8 year old looks like a 12 year old, which reads like a 16 year old to cops. They’re taught not to look in car windows at their reflection bc someone might think they’re up to no good. We boycott places that don’t share our beliefs (which has resulted in tears from both my boys and me 😂🤷🏻‍♀️ ) and don’t celebrate Fourth of July . We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving either. I don’t believe we in the land of liberty and justice FOR ALL like I once did but will fight for that to be a reality until my dying day. I read the letter from Birmingham jail a hundred times a year. It’s my favorite. @shaunking and @iamderay are my favorite news sources and I fact check everything, but I do sometimes fuck up. You should fact check too. So that’s me. Stick around if you’re ready to get uncomfortable. Otherwise ✌🏼 #realtalkwithabiq #selfieswiththeqs
#fridayintoduction Hi I’m Taylor! Owner and head facilitator at #StartingGateNE , Nebraska’s newest place to open the gate to unforgettable learning. I was certified in Equine Assisted Learning in November of 2016 up in Ontario! Being the first to bring this program to Nebraska, specifically #lnk , and finding out I was pregnant right as I began my business - I’ve had my share of road blocks and hurdles. But with these incredible teachers, the #horses , we’ve made Starting Gate. I’d love to tell you more about what a horse can teach you, leave a comment or send me a message!
Feels like a good time for a #fridayintoduction so we can be real friends! So here’s a little about me! ✨ •I am obsessed with personal development. It’s all about who we are and who we are becoming right? You can usually catch me listening to a podcast, reading a book or coaching other women to dig deeper into finding the woman they want to be and how they want to show up for their corner of the world. Any PG recommendations you love, I’ll take! ✨ •You know a girl needs some guilty pleasures. You might not know, but I can’t resist a chocolate chip cookie 🍪, gangster rap, I love the jersey shore (yeaaah buddy!), sparkling champagne 🍾 and margaritas are my jam, something about a spray tan gives me life and I don’t need more coffee, I always need more Jesus. ✨ •I love keeping it REAL! I love pretty photos (like this one, check out my girl @ashfriskphoto ) but you can expect to see some REAL-ity here. I talk about #momtrepreneur life, hardships, self love, beauty, my struggles, body image, female identity, faith, doubt and more. I find I’m more encouraged seeing the real and know we are all in this together! Amen? ✨ •I just started MACRO counting this week and I am PUMPED! I’m a snacker (just a handful of this and a bite of that, oops, I ate the whole thing) so having accountability for my diet is what I need! Any tips or people I should follow? I’ll keep you updated on my instastory about my progress! ✨ • Lastly, I think women are FREAKING AMAZING. We literally have the ability to CREATE life and I believe that a woman has the POWER and SHOULD BE WHO and WHAT she wants. I’m about that pursuit, so join me! ✨ •If you like my little corner of the social media world, tag a friend here and invite her to join too! I love new friends! Ok, your turn! Tell me something about you. Let’s be real friends! 😘
Haaaaaapppyyy #friday !! 🎉🎉 I’m so excited for all my new friends here on my instagram!! I hope you are all having a lovely start to your Friday! I know I sure am!! I’m all finished up with this semester at school! Thank God! This semester was a pain!! I’m on my way right now on a mini vacay up to Prescott, Arizona for a little family get-away! Can’t wait to relax in the beautiful weather But I thought I would start this Friday off with a #fridayintoduction ! Hey! I’m Jess Lauren! I am obsessed with natural light from our absolutely beautiful and golden Arizona sun!! My favorite places to shoot are desert scenes with lots of cacti 🌵 as well as any where that looks super dreamy! 😍 I absolutely love working with all these beautiful faces! Brings such joy and happiness into my life and I wouldn’t want it any other way!! I think it’s the absolute best for my creative side of my photography to shoot with all kinds of people!! One thing I always love to tell me people about myself is that I love to crochet. My friends always make fun of me and call me a grandma but it’s so relaxing and fun to create things! I hand make all of my newborn props as well! Tell me about you!! What do you guys like to do for fun?? . . . . #hello #photographer #intoducingme #itsme #itsfridayfriday #photographerfridays #az #scottsdale #arizona #arizonaphotographer #scottsdalephotographer #naturallightphotographer #smallbusiness #bigmotivation #lovemyjob #ineednewheadshots #happy #lovelife #azbeautiful #desert #azdesert #model #modeling #letsshoot #tellmeaboutyou #friends #letsconnect #yay
It has been awhile since I have done a #fridayintoduction . To be honest I still can’t believe I did one! I am not one to really talk about myself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sometimes I feel as if I don’t have anything important to say. This has been quite out of my comfort zone to say the least. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My name is Melissa 🤦🏼‍♀️, pookie to my man (Nick) — yes, that is his nick name for me. Missy or Mel to family and friends. I married my college sweetheart — and will be celebrating 10 years of marriage bliss this August — woot woot 🙌🏻. I invent my own words — Nick has a book of “Melissisms” started. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Together we have 3 earthly blessings and I angel 👼. Killian is 11 - Elaine is 7 and Grayson is 5. Or as we like to call them the KEG’s. Two dogs Olive and Roxie. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I never set out to become a Wedding Planner. I was working in Gurnee, IL. As a Dental Assistant — and I guess you could say I liked my job. After Nick and I got married I started to help family and friends plan there weddings. One thing lead to another and I made a leap of faith 10 years ago and have never looked back. We own a 1900 Victorian home and are still working on the renovations. The hubby and I can’t decide on anything. I am “forced” to cook — I can but I am always kicked out by the chef in the family. Nick is a Landscape Designer/Manger by day and chef on the weekends. I am truly blessed! ❤️❤️. I live in skinny jeans, over sized T’s and messy top buns. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As of right now I homeschool our littles — and on most days I ask “what the hell were you thinking”!! I live off coffee ☕️ and will often find a cup in the microwave days later 🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️. I HATE living in the cold weather and often beg Nick to move South. I may have been born in the Midwest but the South calls me home. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is me — who are you? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tell me something about you that no one else knows or that I can’t read from your bio. 📷by my sweet 7 year old 😂🤷🏼‍♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #makingconnections #letschat #ingoodcompanyseries #puttingmyselfoutthere #midwestplanner #wisconsinplanner #eventsbymelissa
Continuing from last week with the second part of our #fridayintoduction . I hope you enjoyed getting to know a little bit about me 🤗 the girl behind #eventsbymelissa . Here is part 2 👉🏻 enjoy :))! 1️⃣ I am blessed to be married to my college sweetheart 💕. However, we would later learn that our paths had crossed throughout our life. But a psychology class is what would bring us together. 2️⃣ together we have thee amazing (somewhat sweet) blessings. Their names are Killian, Elaine and Grayson or AKA the KEGs! It wasn’t planned — but it makes for signing cards a breeze 😂. 3️⃣ I am an ex-dancer (not that kind 🤦🏼‍♀️!). I have danced most of my life. Starting with ballet at the tender age of 3 to being the only incoming freshman to make the POM squad. Want to know more 😉? Comment below 👇🏻!
Last week I got to attend #girlboss day @parlorblowdrybar and have headshots done by @seasonmoorephoto so I figured it was time to do a #fridayintoduction because everything about having your hair, makeup and photos done in one place is amazing! I am a manager of electrical engineers by day and naturally chic boss by night...polar opposite, right?! We don't have children yet, but our golden, Achilles is close enough I am a coffee in the morning, tea in the afternoon kind of girl I am pale as they come, but love being at the beach, and that's where you'll find us this weekend for the 4th! Thanks for following along with us! It's been so great seeing so many new faces!
Hi friends! I think it's time for a #fridayintoduction ! I'm Ashley, and I'm "That Girl" behind the lens at @whosthatgirlphotos. I am a wedding & pregnancy photographer local to the Hampton Roads area in Virginia, who is. ALWAYS #willingtotravel . Here are three fun facts about me! 1- You will normally find me with a white chocolate mocha or sweet tea in hand 2- I quote sitcoms and movies like a boss 3- I have a set of Irish twins which if you don't know is two children born back to back! They're currently 3 & 4 years old! It's crazy but so fun! #wtgphotos #whosthatgirlphotos #wtgphotography #whosthatgirlphotography #rvaphotography #richmondphotography #rvaphotographer #richmondphotographer #newborn #newbaby #newbornphotography #newbabyphotography #newbornphotos #newbornbaby 📷 cried: @dianagordonphoto
Happy Friday! It's been a while since I introduced myself, and some of you are new around here, so I wanted to say Hi! 👋🏻 I'm a Portrait photographer based in sunny San Diego, but I get bored & love to travel! It brings me so much joy photographing you gorgeous people at different stages of life (High School Seniors, Maternity, Families, Anniversary, and Boudoir) ❤️ I have a precious rescue pup, #agirlnamedbirdiewhoisreallyadog , who probably makes up half my Instagram posts and she's been my pal for almost a whole year now! 🐶 And I also have a cat who wakes me up early and then sleeps all day! 🐱 I LOVE a good cup of coffee, and finding cute new coffee shops ❤️ I'm an INFJ (any other personality test lovers here?) so when I'm not out snapping away, or hanging out with the 2 sweet girls I nanny, I can usually be found catching up with a friend over coffee or relaxing at home. I also volunteer with the high school ministry at my wonderful church, and love getting to encourage my girls as they walk through life! I truly believe each person walking this earth is so beautiful and valuable and loved by the One who made us, and I try to do my part to remind those around me of those very truths! ❤️ So that's a bit about me! Please say hi and share a bit about yourselves below! Thanks for hanging out here! 😘 (photo of me by the lovely @brookealiceon )
Good morning, sweet friends! Get to know our Founder @kristaboyette on the journal today. Link in profile! Photography @annashackleford
#fridayintroductions for all the new insta-friends I've gained in the past few months. I'm Emma. 20-something, newlywed and Marketing Director for a small IT company. I'm the queen of the sale rack and obsessed with print mixing. I'm a semi-committed gym-goer with a huge sweet tooth and a love for baking. I love glitter and hate wearing lipstick. I drive a 1997 Honda Civic because I'd rather have new boots than a new car. And I'm terrified of both birds and bees. So ladies, join me! Tell me a little about you- perhaps something I wouldn't guess from your #ootd pics!
