INSTAGRAM PHOTO PROP IDEAS!

Hello everyone,



Nowadays we are fortune enough because we can fully express our creativity through one of many platforms, my favorite being Instagram. You have an idea that keeps you awake at night. You execute it just like you saw it inside. You see it blossom right in front of you. You feel satisfied of your hard work. Then you move on, repeat the same process with a newfound idea! 
That's why I love Instagram... visuals made to inspire, take you back to a moment in life of happiness, of a memorable time, of beauty. Each photo tells a story of my life! Not only that, but we also get to connect with one another and share the joys which make us who we are.

This is where you have full control of what message you want to spread out into the world. For me, that's positivity, something colorful and fun to hopefully brighten-up your day!!!🌞

Just follow your heart and create what speaks to you the most. If you're running low on ideas, I've got some for you. Use different kind of props you can easily find in your home to make your shots stand-out. Anything from an umbrella to holding a cup of coffee... Yep, I can already see your feed getting some major LOVE! 💗    

1. Watermelon 


              
With summer here, I'm sure you're eating lots more fruits. Next time, before you devour your watermelon, grab a slice for a few photos...this is the most photogenic summer fruit 😜 Trust me!

Having a fruit in your Insta-pics will give everyone those fun, summer vibes and I'm sure lots of likes.
The one thing I was most excited for after taking this capture was the part where I ate the slice. Good Times! 

Using a fruit is one of the easiest ways to get creative on Instagram without having to do too much other than buying a couple of fruits and posing with them. How many of you have been inspired with a fruit photo before? 

2. Flowers

Leave it up to a bouquet of flowers to make someone's day. Not only in person, but also in an Instagram photo. I know I love receiving... haha.... I mean, seeing any type of flowers in photos. It makes me smile and think of only beautiful things. That's one simple way to spread joy to the world not only on Christmas! 

When I see flowers I think of all the million photos I want to take with them. What can I do when I was born a flower child? LOL! It would be a dream to photograph in an endless field of flowers. I'm keeping my eyes wide open!

3. Lollipop


   
Sweets are meant to be enjoyed, but because my mind is always thinking of fun ideas to make my Instagram photos more creative, I don't let anyone touch my lollipops.😂 Extra points if you match the color of your lollipop!

Got to love a prop like this because it can take you back to your childhood days when sweets were your breakfast and dinner... and the best part is you could get away with it. Now it's all about watching what you eat and forgetting once in a while to enjoy these kind of treats. I mean, who knew there would be so many crazy diets?! 

4. Bubblegum 


        
Here is where the fun begins because it can take you countless tries to form a big enough bubblegum for the perfect shot. That's exactly how many it took me, but I still remember the laughs my photographer and I had. And in the end there were a few good captures to choose from. It was a BLAST! That's why I enjoy creating a visual in my mind and later working in making it come to life. What do you love most about Instagram?

Imagine this photo without the bubblegum. I know it would be a bit too plain for my liking and my personality. Having some kind of prop in your photos definitely makes them more playful and easier for you to express yourself. 

5. Magazine 


    
My last suggestion would be to grab any magazine or newspaper you have sitting around at home and use it as a prop. Hold it by your side or open it up in front of you as if you are reading it. It really adds a cool, casual vibe to your photo. It's another great way to make your Instagram feed stand-out.

I even love the shots where the magazine is part of a flatlay with a cup of coffee and jewelry pieces surrounding it. I don't know why, but it gives me all the feels....must be the strong coffee! 

Now I would love to hear from you...what are some ways you like to make your Instagram photos more fun and what do you think of my photo prop ideas? Which prop would you love to photograph with next?

TOP 5 TRENDS TO TRY THIS SUMMER!

Hello everyone,



It has been said before, but I'll say it again...summer style is my favorite way of feeling like I'm waking up in paradise everyday. With the amount of tropical prints, flowy fabrics and bright corals to pinks, I can't get ENOUGH! There's just something in the way, a summer outfit can bring an ease to your mood, overflowing you with happiness. I feel light, happy and ready to share with you the summer trends that add to my joy. 


The little things, like getting a tan to go with your white maxi or applying your favorite red lipstick can make all the difference in feeling confident and summer ready. What I enjoy doing is changing up my nail color weekly to give me more of those summer vibes... and the best part is, it works! Plus, it's a nice way for me to relax and spend these few minutes to myself... with no other distractions. Yep, the phone doesn't exist when I'm doing my nails! haha 

Before I share my whole routine with you, I think it's time to change gears and talk about what you actually came here for. The five trends I definitely think you should give a try this summer. Fun, beautiful and for everybody... ready to ROCK them?

1. Linen Pieces 


         
Linen is so BIG right now, it will blow away all your other fabrics right off your closet. It's the ultimate fabric for "vacay" inspired outfits. Extra points if it comes in a pattern that represents the beach. I love my leaf prints!   

One of the biggest benefits of wearing linen besides the cute styles it the fact that this fabric doesn't stick to your skin, allowing air to flow easily, making it extra comfortable to wear in the summer when the temperatures are rising. You won't feel the heat as much as with other fabrics. So it's best to stock-up on linen pieces right now because you'll get the best of both worlds... comfort and style into one happy summer!     
2. Clear Bags



Holding one of these makes you a "woman to be remembered" because everything you carry in your bag will be seen... haha just kidding! Actually you'll be remembered for being bold and having more than your outfit as a staple. I'm loving the different sizes and styles of transparent bags being sold almost everywhere... and I honestly want every single one...ohhh I can't help it!!!

It's clear to see this trend is loved by so many fashionistas that it automatically makes it a trend you must try. Not saying that summer won't be great without a bag like this, but it really won't be the same...that's what my fashion heart is telling me. LOL!        
3. Neon



When neon shows up, you know it's about to become fun! Every shade from green to orange immediately draws me in and makes me that much more summer excited. If these neons don't make you happy, I don't know what will?! Seeing, wearing and having neon hanging in my closet is like having a sunny day everyday. 


This is one trend I hope sticks around longer because I would like to wear it even after the summer is over. Why not, right? I can't help but imagine neon clothing with fall accessories. It's as delicious as having chocolate and vanilla into one! 
4. Hair Barrettes



Barrettes are a must if you're into wanting to try something a bit different with your hair this summer. It's a cool way to easily change up your hairstyle and make your overall look more interesting. I'm sure you've seen all the different type of barrettes; with pearls, velvet, sparkly and they even come in sets... the more, the merrier. It would be a really fun accessory to rock at the beach, at a festival or even a night-out. What do you think? 

I like stacking mine on one side... exactly three in a row. I'm not superstitious or anything, but having three looks and feels good to me.    
5. Puffy Sleeves



And my final recommendation is to purchase everything with puffy sleeves. I mean it, it's a trend you wouldn't want to miss. Get your summer dresses and tops to have these fun, voluminous sleeves because you're worth it! I've seen the cutest styles, which make my mind transport to a tropical destination within seconds. However, it takes me a while to get back to reality! hahaha

Wanna know a secret? The puffier the sleeves, the bigger the dreams!!! 😉

HAPPY SUMMER!

Hello everyone, 



Happy Summer!🍉

There's this care-free way of summer where all you want to do is drink cold smoothies, have your feet in the sand, go with the flow and make relaxation your ultimate companion. What better way to celebrate what summer is all about than with another sunny outfit?! One of many to come because this season tends to always surprise me in the best way possible... I LOVE IT! I hope you're in for the ride and are just as excited! Grab your watermelon and let me show you what I came-up with this time. One thing is for sure, it'll have you dreaming of an never-ending SUMMER! 




       
I've got the believe that summers or really anything in life is what YOU make it, so why not make it bright, beautiful and fun for yourself. It's up to you to have the best time, create the memories you've always wanted to experience, be this blissful fountain of your own happiness. Forget the rest, there is enough of that. Everything begins within you!!!

So here I am, catching my dose of summer rays in this strapless culotte jumpsuit, which couldn't have been a better choice because the fabric is light, flowing to every movement of mine. I move right, it goes with me, I walk left, it follows... okay, you get the point! haha! Plus, I love the bright orange and subtle print of black marks everywhere. From afar it looks completely orange, but once you get closer you notice the details and I live for these tiny, but noticeable details. What's one thing that can easily attract you to any piece of clothing? 



           
When it comes to the accessories, I've got to mention some exciting news... this set of 5 piece stackable bracelets is named after me "RADI". Thanks to my Lesebi family for the honor and continued support. So fun to mix and match...for sure it will be my go-to summer choice. I honestly can't explain how much Lesebi jewelry has become part of my everyday life, making me feel inspired and stylish from the moment we discovered each other. I'm HAPPY to say my whole jewelry collection consists of their unique, boho-chic and remarkable earrings, necklaces and bracelets. Forever a Lesebi girl!!! 💕

Happy Summer! Talk to you soon... to be exact, next Thursday! 😘  


                                                                                                                               Love, Radi

CHASE THE SUMMER!

Hello everyone,



Ready or not summer is almost here... in my heart it has been summer all along with the palm tress present in almost every photoshoot, with the vibrant colors making a pop and the boho-chic accessories giving the illusion that I'm always on vacation. However, today I'm turning it UP a notch because I dream, live in the hot tropics and I am always inspired by the fun, natural, easy-going fashion during this time of year. 

I wouldn't change it for the world... when summer and style come together, there's magical sunshine in the air. That's how it feels since these are two of my favorite things! Wanna know what else I feel? I feel the strange need to jump into the pool right now with my laptop... it's so hot! haha




           
To keep as cool as possible, but still wear something, I like taking a summer scarf and wrapping it around as a top. There are lots of ways to do this! You can go for a bandeau type of style or even one with straps. The only thing is the scarf has got to be long enough, so you can play with it until you've come up with something that you like. I love the hanging pom-poms on mine! 

One of the first things that come to my mind when thinking of summer is denim shorts. The easiest decision you'll ever make because they work with any top, allow you to move around and enjoy lots of summer activities and are super cute. Stock up on a few different pairs...various in length, details, wash and let them take you from one summer day to another. You won't regret it!  

Finally, it all comes down to the accessories! This is where I like adding lots of my personal touch in creating a unique outfit; playful and fun for me to go-out in! Lots of dainty rings, big earrings, anklets, bracelets, sunglasses, and like in this case, a set of barrettes in the hair. When it looks right to me, that's when I stop adding pieces, but I'm not afraid to mix and match, trying various combinations. How about you... how do you make your summer outfits a bit extra and more YOU?
