sometimes i have a love hate relationship with instagram. while i find taking photos, editing, documenting, discovering new artists all very inspiring…i also think it can be unproductive, repetitive, self indulgent, inauthentic, and sometimes boring. two very strong stories to each side.
each year i try to clean it up so i feel more positive than negative. i go through and unfollow anything that makes me feel not so great and i start following new content. i do love the feature on intagram if you follow someone new it recommends people with a similar aesthetic, that’s super helpful. i fell down a very inspiring hole the other night and followed 20ish new people and it brightened up my feed and made instagram interesting for me again. i really do think it’s a wonderful platform, i just feel like you have to tweak it sometimes!
one of the accounts that i found and enjoy is @apieceapart. i like that it’s a clothing line, but also shows her constant inspiration. which makes the account less about the sales and more about the bigger picture and process.
so what do you say, are you going to go look for some new inspiration today? find someone you like to follow and check out who they follow and start there! xx bri
the new year is a great time to declutter your home and start fresh. clear out the things you haven’t used in the past year, and focus on keeping the things you use regularly and love. some organizing ideas to start: keep a basket by the entryway instead of tossing things on a chair, hang grab-and-go type things like hats and purses on the wall, and take advantage of the space beneath your bed. for the tabletop use small bowls and baskets to store items inside so that they don’t stack up on your table space. here are some subtle and beautiful ways you can add more storage to your home and start the year off organized. – erika
hang hats on the wall, and keep a big basket by the entryway!

this was some of my inspiration for a recent photoshoot i did in hawaii. i thought i would share, because elvis sure isn’t hard on the eyes in blue hawaii.
i saw this giant, ‘sky above clouds’ painting by georgia o’keeffe when visiting the art institute of chicago last week (which i recommend!) and then did some research on her tonight. i’ve been really wanting to visit new mexico recently. to see the white sands and experience the soft neutral interior aesthetic there.
these are photos from georgia’s studio in new mexico. i found them interesting…
so inspired tonight, it’s such a wonderful feeling.
