You may or may not know that I do spend a lot of my time online, but not through this platform. My full time job is actually in digital (mainly social media) which leaves me with very little time to work on my own! But, when I do have the time to dedicate online I spend most of it scrolling through Instagram. The reason I tend to gravity to Instagram more is because of it’s mix of content. You get the best of video content with reels and IGTV, but also a great portfolio of imagery.
In today’s world of social media, we have so many more options available to us and discover some brands and companies that we might never have. The algorithm has it’s ups and definitely it’s downs – and if you’re unsure of it’s downs then I suggest that you watch the Social Dilemma on Netflix. Sometimes I feel as if the algorithm knows me better than I know myself. Does anyone feel the same? But through it I have discovered some incredible brands that I love…
Expressive Cherry is a family run brand by the lovely Anita, who actually reached out to me to test out some of their sunglasses. I am now 2 pairs down with another on the way and I am eyeing up one of their woven pearl handbags (here). I think that speak for itself when you ask what I think of this brand! They have a huge selection of products from handbags, sunglasses and jewellery, which are mostly based on high end designer models. Their most popular pair, which are pictured above, are a Celine Dupe which retail for just £15! They also do a kids version for your mini me!
One for all the mums out there is this lovely Portuguese brand Meia Pata. I have always wanted to get a twinning swimwear set with my daughter but struggled to find one that I really love, until I found this brand! They have a stunning selections of prints and cater to both boys and girls! Wren and I have the cherry print costumes with headbands and a towel. They are a little more one the pricer side, but definitely worth it for the uniqueness and quality of their products. It’s also worth doing a quick Google search for stockists as their website is in Portuguese.
This store is probably up there as one of my favourite Instagram finds! I was looking for an inexpensive replacement for my engagement ring when I stumbled across their page. I opted for a few of their champagne coloured rings and can mostly be found wearing the Glacies cushion ring (here) . Their rings are either silver, gold or platinum plated and are very affordable. I am a huge lover of statement jewellery so the big ring range is right up my street, however, they do have something for everyone! If your a diamond and glitz lover, this is definitely one for you!
Another boujee store for you. When I said the algorithm knows me, this is it. Whenever I go into a store I’m like a magpie. I go in needing some basic casual wear and come out with full one beaded and sequin numbers! If you think Paris Hilton and Kendall Jenner, then you’re on the right track. Remember the chainmail dresses they both wore? Well, Meshki do an exact dupe, and that is what I fell in love with! Since discovering the brand, they have expanded into a great range of basics and other items. Well worth checking out!
This brand is one that I am yet to purchase from, but…just look that their amazing range! I have recently discovered them and wish I had sooner! Every single item from this brand makes me go WOW! I’m not usually one for a jumpsuit either as I don’t think they suit me, but Nadine Merabi has me converted! And don’t get me started on the Panama sets! Its safe to say that I will be adorned in this brand from head to toe this Christmas and New Year!
Whats an ‘Instagram favourite brands’ post with featuring a home store? This gorgeous brand is from my home town in Shrewsbury and has fastly become an influencer and social media favourite. When you think of house goals, 9 times out of 10 it will feature a product from this brand. From accessories, to vases and side boards, Charles Ted have everything you need to spruce up your home. The eucalyptus sprigs paired with some hydrangeas in a luxurious stone vase ar my favourite.
