Finding Inspiration - Who I Follow

April 12, 2016
Obviously nowadays social media has become a hub for inspiration.  You can find someone that loves just about anything you do.  Pinterest was the big bang for me with fashion.  I use to tear out magazine pages and put them in a binder....I had a hard copy version of a Pinterest board.  Man if I'd thought of that first....but, shoulda, woulda, coulda.

So, I thought I'd get down the accounts I follow and get the most inspiration from...both in fashion/beauty and in fitness.  I mostly use Instagram, and if they have a corresponding YouTube channel I'll normally follow.  Photos have (unfortunately) become the new spoken word to get people to understand you're message.

Fashion/Beauty - 

I love the 'Like to Know' instagram page and the program is entails.  If you register on their site and 'like' any IG post associated you get an email with shopping options!  Takes the thought away from 'where do I find that?'  You'll notice a lot of women I follow use the #liketoknow option to email you.









Fitness - 

There are a LOT of 'get fit quick' options on social media.  Lots of before and after's with a 3 month span.  I try to stay away from that.  I know the result I'm looking for is a long term process.  I follow some local Peoria ladies, but for you all I'm going to talk about more global accounts.  I follow products (Cellucor, Buff Bake, DOUGHbar, etc) for tips and inspiration from their sponsored athletes, but I find my inspiration from other female lifters.  I mainly follow Alicia Coates, Heidi Somers (Buff Bunny) and Nikki Blackketter.  They have physiques I'd aspire to, but know my body will never look like theirs because that is their JOB.  The balance between what you aspire to and what is attainable is hard for a lot of women.  When you see lifters, of course you want to look tight and fit, but know that you don't have 2 hours a day to spend in the gym and get paid by companies to promote their product.  You have a full time job, probably a family and you want to keep yourself sane!




Hope these accounts give you some good inspiration, and let me know who you follow and I'll check them out!

I hope the weather gets better so we can get out and do some photo for content I want to put up!

Have an amazing week!
