We know these are supposed to be #fridayintroductions but just couldn’t wait all week to post this gorg photo of Gabby shot by the lovely @carriekingphotographer. This company is 100% a partnership and we really couldn’t do it without this gem right here. She’s our master of style. The fastest email writer on the planet. A true visionary spotting the coming trends well before they are indeed, a trend. Lover of dessert and Italian food. And one badass wedding planner. The “Leaf” 🌿 of Banks & Leaf. We adore this #bossbabe . | @bridalturban @zara
Hey! I’m the other half of @twomamasbayarea My name is Olukemi. I am a proud black woman, but I am also a wife and a mom. I felt it was important to share the relationship I have with our beautiful 8 year old son with the world. Being a wife and mom has its challenges, but it’s the best part of my life, and I wouldn’t change it for the world. When my wife or son isn’t bugging me I enjoy reading, writing, whatever my wife cooks and playing video games especially with my son. I spend most of my time writing because that is my passion but until my writing pays off I work to make sure my family is GREAT! #twomamasbayarea#lesbianmom#lgbtfamily#lgbtmoms#fridayintroductions#momsgroup

Found this cute little mommy in Urban Outfitters!!!! So thankful for her in my life. Without her leading me closer to Jesus, I don’t even know where I’d be today. She is also the cutest because she only uses her Instagram to post birthday collages 😂 I just adore her. So so so grateful. Who is your role model in your life that you’re extra thankful for today?
Oh hi. I haven't shown my face around here in a while. I thought I'd pop in and introduce myself. I don't know about you, but I'm always more drawn to accounts where I know a bit about the artist behind the drawings, lettering, etc. So hi. I'm Amanda! Want to know 5 random things about me? Keep reading 😊
1. I learned the alphabet backwards before (or not long after) I knew it forwards. My dad thought it would be funny to teach it to me that way.
2. I love cardio kickboxing. Like, a lot.
3. I am really really scared of crawly/slithery/flying creatures. They make me cry. Real tears.
4. I have lived in 5 different states in the last 9 years.
5. I am currently sitting in my air conditioned car with a sleeping baby in the parking lot during church - hence the car selfie. .
Hope you learned something new about me today. Hopefully I'll start showing my face around here more often (I mean, if you guys are okay with that...)
So.... I never think about doing #fridayintroductions on an actual Friday - it's either before or after that day of the week 🙈
But either way, it's been a while since I've posted my face, so Hi! I'm LeAndra, the maker and artist of @createdbyelsieb & I love color. I'm also a lover of nature, books, learning, animals, and random facts.
Here are a few random facts about me:
1 - I find the way people's brains work fascinating (we were huge fans of Criminal Minds for a few years but there is only so much delving into that I can handle, so we quit watching)
2 - related to #1, I'm a sensitive soul & have to be mindful of where I'm spending my time. Otherwise I'd spend a good amount of energy simply trying to deal with other people's problems.
3 - we have 2 puppies & no kids, but I like to say our pups are our babies & they do know us as 'mom' and 'dad'
4 - my second toe is longer than my 'thumb' toe and it makes me size up anytime I shop for covered toe shoes.
5 - while I dye wool for a living, I've never had my hair colored - it has a really pretty ability to produce natural highlights & any time I think of covering that up with a different color I just can't do it.
There, now you know a little more about me! I seriously love that you all love my fibers enough to stick around & see (and buy) the pretties - it makes me smile to know I'm contributing to the beauty you choose to bring into your home, and is not something I take lightly, so thank you 💗
What would you tell yourself if you had the chance to go back 10 years? In 2008, I was a newly minted grad of Towson’s School of Art education. I wish I could go back in time and tell that ten-years-ago self that it’s all going to be ok and not to worry about anything. Keep working hard, and those things that seem like such a big deal won’t be in 10 years. What would you say?
As there are quite a few new faces around here, I thought it was time to say "Hi" again. It's not Friday, but my husband took a picture of me today, so here you go 😋
This is me. I'm Lea, 29 years old in August and married to my fabulous husband since 2014. I work as a teacher with 11 to 18 year-olds which can be quite tough as you can imagine. Yay, puberty 😅 I love it anyways. Most of the time. 😉
I love my local church. I am part of a worship team, am responsible for the welcome board and organize events for women with a team of beautiful and talented women. I love people. I love food and I love biblejournaling. I love spending time in the presence of the Father, especially through worship or reading His word. Or just talking to him on the couch sometimes 😄 Even though I live in Germany, I have a strong connection to the US as I spent a semester there during my studies and my parents-in-law live there too. I also love baking.
I joined the instacommunity in January this year and started a blog just a few weeks ago.
Now, that was random. Nice to meet you! I'd love to hear where you are from! Feel free to say hi in the comments 😊
My day is looking a lot less like this... and a lot more like comfy clothes, Queer Eye and culling this weekend’s weddings from my couch! I’m in full on recovery mode, y’all! My heart is so full after, not one, but TWO weddings this weekend! I have to give a quick shoutout to @savannahsmithphoto, who is pretty much my right hand woman every single day. She worked for me on Friday (for the very first time!!) and I helped her out on Saturday! I think it is safe to say that I couldn’t have gotten through the weekend without her! How on Earth did I get so lucky to have such a sweet, talented & hardworking friend?! #workwifeforlife 💕💕 📷: @savannahsmithphoto
It’s been a while and I wanted to say Hello to all of my new followers with this little Friday introduction. Yes, I am aware it is already Sunday but that’s one part of me I am not very proud of. I can’t be on time. It truly surprises me that I never miss my planes, most of my trains or my own classes 😂
This post is also sending out a big bear hug to everyone for coming along with me. It’s an honour to have you with me.
My name is Andrea or Drea and I am not sensitive about the pronunciation at all 😝
Right now I am in the US visiting my yoga home in Bedford Hills, joining classes and workshops taught by different teachers every day to study, train and experience the esoteric material which comes along with the physical practice of Katonah Yoga®.
Yoga is more than a pose. It’s a way to live a joyful life. The physical practice should be sustainable, recharging and informing, even reforming. I want a revolution hence I need to annoy myself. If I don’t annoy myself someone else will and that is going to be worse 😜
I truly believe that every pose is available for everyone. All it needs is some creativity to modify, some props to support, and a person telling you where you can go. Personally I think there are always options #stopdiminishingyourself 👍🏼
My pics are taken by myself and my iPhone. I use the regular camera app to get a still with an app called Video2Photo. The quality is not as good as I’d like it. I hope to find a good burst mode app soon.
My pics are edited with SnapSeed or Polarr. To get rid of sockets or lines or dirty spots at my wall at home I use Touch ReTouch. My vids are edited with PerfectVideo.
For a couple of years now I am sober and a non-smoker.
I wear a scarf every day. Never had a stiff neck again.
I would love if you would just take a minute to tell me why you started to follow me. What made you hit the follow button? What do you like the most about it? What is missing? Feel free to ask me any questions 🤓
Happy PRIDE Sunday ❤️

Hi party people! Welcome to all my gorgeous new followers! I thought I’d do one of those Friday introduction posts thought it’s Sunday because I’m a revolutionary like that. 🤣 ANYWAYSIES, I’m Leonie Dawson. I’m an internationally best selling author of the 2018 Shining Year goals workbooks, the founder of the Shining Biz and Life Academy and a doTERRA Presidential Diamond. I love art and writing and teaching people how to build blooming businesses. Most of all though, I’m a homeschooling mama of two daughters, a perpetual pervert of my husband. We have a Maltese Shitzu who adores my husband and everybody else can get fucked. We currently live on the Sunshine Coast. We are location independent because of my businesses so over the last eight years we’ve lived in Canberra, Whitsundays, Cairns, Kuranda, Hobart, Canberra again and now here. Maybe we will settle, maybe we won’t. Most of all, I plan on enjoying it all. I’m also a fan of books (especially trashy romance), stationery, horseriding, getting my mermaid on at the beach, and all housework as an option I have elected out of. Fuck clean houses, there’s art to be made. The End. 👍
Thursday was #nationalselfieday .
Yesterday was #fridayintroductions.
Today is Saturday and the day I celebrate those last two things. 😉
We’ve got a lot of new friends around here so how about I tell you a little bit about me.
I’m Margo and I, along with my oldest daughter Madilee are in charge here. (Our initials are MES, plus, we’re kind of a mess.) Except she’s in nursing school and super busy so it’s mostly just me lately.
I’ve got a super cute hubby that I’ve been married to for almost 25 years. Together we’ve got four pretty cool kids. They are 16, 18, 21 and 23. Momma needs a grandbaby soon.
Three years ago I bought a kit of essential oils to see what they were all about. I realized they were about awesome wellness and emotional support. Then I accidentally started doing the business because sharing is super easy when you love something. Now I want all the people everywhere to have these amazing tools in their lives.
I’m currently at the end of a week long road trip with Hubs and the “little girls”. They aren’t really little but will be referred to as that for the rest of their days.
We have had a lot of fun and I think we probably need to plan more road trips. .
So glad you’re here! Tell us about your favorite family road trip memory. 🛣
Have you ever had the feeling that you are not being paid your worth?
According to the Department of Labor, women earn less than their counterparts.
You are definitely going to want to attend Brigette's corporate and public sector session "I am Worthy: Negotiate Based on Your Value". #readysetAIM#LetTiAnnaHelpYouAIM
body image is such a terribly hard thing isn’t it? man we all focus on the negative don’t we. pinching and pulling and covering all the bits that we still don’t like. but what if we all focused on something we like about ourselves? what if we spoke nicely to ourselves and changed the conversation? so here’s something i like, i really like my eye color. green is my absolute fav. what do you love about yourself? be nice to yourself today, just a little... do it. and tag me, so i can tell you the beautiful parts too. #imperfectcourage#imperfectcouragebooktribe#imperfectcouragebook#fridayintroductions @jessicahonegger
totally missed #fridayintroductions (and I’m honestly bad at keeping up with them anyway) but here’s me, on one of the happiest days of my life! for those of you who don’t follow my personal account @rebeccaseurkamp trey and I, my middle school crush and boyfriend, best friend and partner in crime of the past 7 year had a top-secret intimate wedding with our closest friends and family. We kept the guest list to 30 people, found a cute little venue that overlooked beautiful tall trees, and said our ‘I do’s. I’ll be sharing a full blog post on why we did what we did, how we did it, and what we are doing now soon! We have just collapsed onto our couch and will be taking today to recoup and soak in all the goodness that has encompassed the past 10 days. Trey finally picked up my camera and started taking some pretty amazing photos on this trip. I have over 80 polaroids and tons of actual NICE photos of myself (hallelujah) to remember this trip forever which is awesome! thanks for taking the time to read my little instachat and be on the lookout for the blog post! happy saturday friends!
Hey there! I’m Lindsey, the founder of Bottle of Tears. Thank YOU for showing up for your friends and family. Together we are mailing hope to those who need it most as a reminder that they are not forgotten and are deeply loved.
