Instagram Roulette


Instagram Roulette

One of my favorite things to do with my Instagram feed is quickly swipe my finger up the screen of my iPhone and pause only at the photos that catch my immediate attention. I coined this the term, “Instagram Roulette”. Since I follow so many bloggers, it is common for my feed to become clogged by #ads, #spons, or worse…the dreaded “text” photo. Nine times out of 10, if there happens to be added text on the photograph it is safe to say I pass right by it.

Instagram Travel Thursday with Skimbaco Lifestyle

For this week’s Instagram Travel Thursday, I was inspired by Nadia Carriere, the Editor of the family lifestyle and travel site, Childmode. Nadia has such an incredible  knack at capturing Instagrams that make the viewer feel as if they were there taking the photos. In each one of her IGs she makes Instagramming look easy. And then you yourself gets behind the phone and tries to capture the same photo quickly finding out it is near  impossible.

I could go on for hours how amazing Nadia’s talent for Instagram is. She is definitely a mentor of mine and I am excited to see where her next adventure takes her.  For this #IGTravelThursday I wanted to share with you the Instagrams that I have taken that I am most proud of. OK, so they might be the most amazing Instagrams, but they are my personal best and I’d love to know what y’all think!

    I love the idea behind Instagram roulette. The color with the pool shot is incredible. I love how it looks crystal clear, and initially is a simple photo- but it’s great!

  • Rosey August 1, 2013

    The tropical drink puts me right there on an island, I love it!

  • Heather Pfingsten August 1, 2013

    I love this idea! I wish I was sitting on a gorgeous beach instead of being stuck inside at work.

  • cindy August 1, 2013

    Love all the pics! This looks like a blast!

  • Lisa Goodmurphy August 1, 2013

    Great selection! The pool and the drink are my favourites for the vivid colours but each of them caught my attention and made me want to know the rest of the story.

  • Lea August 1, 2013

  • Elena August 1, 2013

    Love the idea of instagram roulette! May have to use that to go through my feed.

  • Satu VW August 1, 2013

    Well I have to say that your IG pictures are pretty amazing as well! And the idea of the roulette is great, I’m going to give that a go too.

  • I love the photo of your daughter (at least I am guess it is your daughter) and the black hat by the pool. Great shot. They are all wonderful.

    I liked this post, and I have to admit that I’m guilty of perhaps writing too much, trying to give info. It’s nice to get a fresh perspective on that from you to help improve.

  • Missy Bell August 1, 2013

    I’m not on Instagram but I think your photos are amazing. Don’t sell yourself short. Keep doing what you’re doing.

    Awesome job.
