I loooove the city. I am currently in the process of applying for jobs post-grad, and I have already told my parents that I want to work and live in the city. 

And then I tell them Seattle isn't big enough. Which, isn't true. Seattle is big, but Boston, NYC, and other cities are bigger, and that's how I love them. Still, the city is where my heart lies, and when I'm in the city, I also get so much creative inspiration for my blog.

But then there comes another discussion, as you can tell from my header :P 

Instagram, and Instagram themes. I love seeing themes, but does anyone else who use IG for marketing purposes find it kind of burdensome and annoying sometimes? 

Because I totally do. 

In theory, the idea is amazing, and worth applauding. But in practice, it is hard. Especially if you are someone like me who is moving every three months. This summer I managed to get my IG back on track but only because I've been in Seattle all summer. 

I've been kind of dreading going back to school for fear of it messing up my IG 'theme'... but at the same time, it's also a relief for me. Because the fact that I'm nomadic is what gives me my inspiration. 

Regardless, I know my IG has changed since I've been back and I've learned to live with that. I'm just slowing working my way around it, is all. 

But I seriously applaud all those who have consistently kept up a theme - as someone who is trying to do that, let me tell you, it is HARD. 

But I'm sure the pay off is also worth it <3 

How do you feel about having an Instagram theme? 
If you have a great Instagram theme, how do you upkeep it?
