It is that time for the #letsbelivin hashtaggers to shine! I am so excited for this round of weekly favorites because more people are beginning to use the hashtag, which makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Like I stated in the original post, I will continue featuring three Instagram photos (posted by different individuals) until the following picks up a little more, then increase to five Instagram photos. If your photo isn’t featured this week, don’t fret! There is always next week and remember, the more photos you post with #letsbelivin (it’s awesome because you can include it for every photo), the more likely you will pop up here!
Before I begin with the three weekly favorites, I want to personally thank Cat of KittyKitty LaLa for her dedication to promote this hashtag. She took it upon herself to frequently tweet about it and even include it in multiple posts like Free Overlooked Resources That Increase Page Views and The Hashtags You Need to Start Using On Instagram. I honestly believe the reason more people are including the hashtag is because of her promotional skills and I sincerely appreciate it. Thank you Cat!
Find out how to make this amazing peppermint bubbly holiday cocktail here! I want to host a holiday party just for an excuse to make these cocktails and have all my guests “ohh” and “ahhh.”
Hillary of The Blonde Stylist found me through Cat and told me she was also a new blogger. I had to look at her achieves to actually believe it. Her layout is crisp, clean, and user-friendly, she uses photos in her blog posts like a pro, and I love how her personality shines in her content.
If you are looking for a blogger with beauty and hair knowledge (she is a professional after all :P), great recipes, and home décor ideas—follow along with Hillary, she’s the one for you!
When I first saw this photo, I was tempted to drop what I was doing and run to the nail salon to get this exact mani pedi. No joke, I’m probably still going to do it (I hope you don’t mind me outright copying you, Amy). This nail design screams excitedly, “It’s winter!!” which is exactly what I’ve been doing on my blog for the past few weeks.
Amy of Living N Learning is getting back into the blogging game and I’m really glad to have stumbled across her blog through Instagram. Reading her posts about 5ks+ and fitness motivate me to get my own butt into gear, and her dedication to lose weight is truly inspiring and touching. Not to mention, she’s a fellow dog mom and somewhat-recent college graduate trying to figure out life.
If you love to read about fitness, personal growth, and the journey of losing weight, check Amy out and follow so you don’t miss any updates!
Jamie, where are you that’s warm enough for flowers to still be in bloom? It’s winter and although we all love the photos of Christmas trees, holiday treats, snow, and the warm indoors, I love that she reminded us that beautiful meadows of flowers still exist. Even if they are all shriveled up and dead here in Colorado.
So I am convinced Jamie of Messy Lemons is a professional photographer, her photos (no matter whether it’s an autumn leaf or a soap bar) are stunning. She relaunched her blog several months ago and I’m really excited for her because Messy Lemons sprinkles a little of this, a little of that in such an effortless way. I fell in love with this blog after reading 10 Things That Can (And Will) Go Wrong When You Work At A Restaurant because I can completely relate to every single thing on that list. I love when that happens reading another blogger’s post.
If you are interested in a little bit of everything and amazing photography, this is your one-stop shop. Jamie describes her blog as an outlet for her creativity and it truly shows in her posts, personality, and layout.
Keep on including #letsbelivin as an Instagram hashtag and stay tuned for next week!
