If I had to choose only one social media platform, it would have to be Instagram. I spend so (read too much) time scrolling through beautiful accounts. If you missed my video on Five Canadian Instagrammers you should follow, here it is. These gals give me major FOMO! Who doesn’t want to be in a monochromatic hip café in Toronto taking flatlays (I’m looking at you Joelle (La Petite Noob)? Alternatively, I also love wearing sweet feminine styles that only Marie Ernst can pull off. Maybe you want to play mermaid for the day and follow along with local makeup artist Jessika Petten and her brightly colored and striking transformations! While these ladies’ feeds are serious goals, there is no…
