How to Make the Perfect Instagram Story Cover Photos

So, as I’m sure you all know, Instagram now has the option to add instagram stories to your highlight reel. These highlighted stories stay on your profile page so people can look through old stories you’ve highlighted. The best thing about this, is you can categorize your stories now into whatever you want, style, decor, beauty, etc. It’s perfect for people who love posting stories and for viewers who want to look through specific stories. I love the idea of posting in categories cause now whenever I’m like, “oh what should I wear today…?”, I’ll just flip through my style stories for some inspiration! It’s like clothes shopping through your own closet.

Side-bar: does anyone remember Cher’s closet from Clueless where she looked through everything in her computer to see what the outfit looked like on her before wearing it? Well that is my style insta stories for me!! I swear its a great little tool.

Anyways, back on track. So you can look through everyone else’s categories too to get some inspiration as well.

Now it’s not necessary to create your own cover photo for your highlighted stories (instagram will just mark your first pic as your automatic cover photo), but for me and my OCD-like tendencies I prefer everything look the same. So creating a cover photo is a MUST!

Random Thoughts

random

So I’ve been thinking of some sure random stuff and just wanted to share with you guys….

So for beginners, Does anyone else not use their dishwasher? I don’t know why, but I hate using dishwashers. I would rather hand wash all my dishes. And yes, I do hand wash everything!

How often is too often to go shopping? Cause I’m pretty sure I do that too much with shopping online. lol Amazon is a true problem. It’s just so convenient I can’t resist.

Does getting the silent treatment drive anyone else crazy? I can’t stand it when people give you the silent treatment. Like hello, I’m not a mind reader! Just tell me what’s wrong! 😝

New Year, New Goals: Welcome to 2018

Dream Office Decor: Classic, Feminine Design

classic office decor with feminine touches

Let’s talk office decor! Have you ever sat and planned out every detail of a room in your head, or how you want your first home or office to look? I literally do that ALL the time! I love designing and coming up with new ideas on how to decorate a room.

As a little girl, I used to constantly rearrange my bedroom furniture over and over again just because I loved switching things up. There just something so refreshing about changing things up. Plus, I get bored really easily so changing things up a lot is just common practice for me. Keeps things fun and interesting in my opinion.

But anyways….the purpose of this post is that I have been dreaming of how to decorate my first home office and I am so glad that now I will have the space to do it. I have been brainstorming and trying to come up with ideas of what I wanted for a while. Plus, I’ve been browsing Pinterest religiously trying to find inspiration for what kind of style I want in my office.
