Our Favorite New Orleans Instagramers

Sometimes, after a long bout of globetrotting, your heart just screams “Stay home!” (Let’s be honest, our wallets have been screaming the same thing for a while now.) Luckily, even when we’re not on the road or in the air, we live in one of the greatest travel destinations in the world. So, expect to hear some shouting from the rooftops about Nola while we park it for the next few months. In the meantime, these are our favorite New Orleans Instagrammers, who keep us up-to-date on what’s up in the city.

Give them a follow, and tell ‘em we sent ya!

Sweet little moment with my furry baby boy. Tim and I don't plan on having kids. Neither one of us have that desire. It's funny though because we were raised on the idea that you go to school, find a job, get married, have kids. That's the order of life. Not for us. Times are changing and the idea of what is a normal and perfect life can look really different from person to person. Don't try to fit into some box. Find out what you want and what you desire and what path you want to take. Then take it, whatever it may be. ????????????‍????‍????‍????????‍????????????????????????‍♂️????‍♀️⛹????‍♀️????????‍♀️✈???????????????????????? . . #nola #bohemianstyle #myanthropologie #jungalowstyle #myhouzz #homewithrue #apartmenttherapy #realliving #yellowtrace #mysouthernliving #myhousebeautiful #noladesign #inmydomaine #sodomino #dwellpow #interiorforall #fpme #lonnyliving #ABMathome #showemyourstyled #verandamag #bhghome #yellowtraceinteriors #flashesofdelight #findyouraway #homelove #mypinterest #landgathome

Joy. Stay present, ladies. ALL ladies and lady identifying humans. Don’t go dark today on social media. Be bigger than you ever have in your life. Take up more space with your energy, your words, your presence, your impact. Use your voices and your bodies to incite change. Putting up a black square does nothing if your actions don’t make it past that one post on the internet. Affect change off of your screens as well as on them. Your power is in being in plain sight. Hold them accountable and make them listen. . . This morning (like every Sunday morning), I will be dancing for strangers. Many of those strangers may hold different beliefs than I do and it’s quite possible that if they knew anything about me, they would say that my rights should be taken away and that my family is an “abomination.” They would say that the things I believe in and fight for are completely a farce and that institutionalized racism doesn’t exist because there’s black men making millions in the football game that’s playing on the TV over their heads. They would argue that women like myself and every woman I know aren’t to be believed when we come forward about our assaults and experiences because we are irrational and incapable of being civil. They would say that they wish for a different time when America was “great.” . . To those people I say “I’m here. We are here. Loud. Proud. And I won’t give you the satisfaction of having an entire day of not having to see or hear me. Not today and not ever. And I’m definitely coming back to haunt your ass when I die.”
