Defriending Can Be Cleansing – Etiquette Guide To Defriending On Social Media

Have you ever defriended someone on social media? I’ve done it many times on Instagram. That platform for me is work, and I need to stay focused. So if you’re a friend reading this, you now know why I don’t follow that portion of your digital life. Momma don’t have time for rabbit holes.

Unfollowing, for me, on Instagram isn’t that big of a deal. It’s mostly brands I’ve outgrown or a former Instagrammer who now posts dogs, food, and babies versus tables and chairs.

I also have this strange rule about not following over 1000 accounts on Instagram, and when I hit that milestone, I go through my list and purge. Strange and weird, without any reasoning I know. Yes, that has resulted with a few nastygrams in my DM box, but srsly??? You’ve probably never met me. BTDubs, I’m presently sitting at 999…the great purge is a comin’. I’m not being mean. Think of it as hitting refresh.

A couple of months ago, I made the decision to cleanse my Facebook friends list, which was a first. My feed was just depressing every time I scrolled…it too needed a bit of a refresh. If you weren’t active…gone. If you whined and were depressing…gone. Posted political garbage…gone. Friends, family members, classmates, former co-workers — no one was off limits. BEST. DECISION. EVER.

Beautiful Distractions No. 12

Last week I was a #TRADspotter and toured The MART with Luxe Home Chicago and Traditional Home magazine. What a complete treat for the eyes! If you missed my Instagram Stories, I saved them as a highlight in my profile. There was “one new to me” company that I was completely wowed by. Maya Romanoff’s wallcoverings are out of this world. Beautiful wood veneers, bedazzled glass beads, woven material, mother of pearl, woven wool fabric…it’s texture heaven. Mind. Blown. They’re out of Skokie, IL, not too far from my home, and I’m working on a factory tour to give you a closer look.

I Fed The Troll

The other day I fed an internet troll. Normally I would delete the comment and move on, but that particular morning I was feeling frisky and let that troll’s voice be heard. I mean, she did have a point although her delivery needed a bit of work. I posted this photo with the caption of, “I woke up, got some coffee and decide this room needs to change. Ever want to burn it all and start over? #pleasetellmeimnottheonlyone”.

Finding Your Style Using A Visual Mood Board

People ask time and time again to describe my style. Gaahhhhhhh, really? I have absolutely no idea where to begin. I mean when I see it I know it? Does that count? A little old. A little new. A little quirky. Sometimes pink. All things French. They look at me with a blank stare. Sorry, I got nothin’ else for ya.

12 Chapters. 365 Stories.

The first week of January 2019 is gone, and my brain is swimming with ideas and reflecting back on last year. I don’t like making resolutions because failure ensues in 47 days or less. Rather, I chose a word or theme to focus on. Last year was “learn and grow”. A year of figuring out what I liked and didn’t like. Sound easy, but in actuality, it was a bit of trial and error.
