I discovered the Select 7 IG account about a year ago, and immediately thought, “oh now this is the thing to do”. One cool person, featured for a week, each day a different topic – it’s genius! As a scented glossy mag, collage-loving, round-up obsessed, behind the scenes curious fangirl of inspiring lifestyle content, the Select 7 scratched a lingering itch for me that. Not since Domino had I really discovered new peeps with cool houses, interesting lives and make-it-happen advice for doing life a little more radly, and particularly, there was no one really remarkable to me putting this content out of IG.
I was so impressed that I reached out to the Founder, Pamela, and promptly insisted we meet her for drinks one early eve in NYC, so I could tell her just that. ‘Dude! You made the thing!’. She was lovely, I’ve been enjoyably following since then, and I am supes-stoked that this week, my very own self is being featured as a guest on the Select 7!
On Monday, we went over some motivations I have, like helping puppos, Tuesday was all about the foods and my fave places to eat in Raleigh, Aspen and NYC, Wednesday was awesome b/c I got to share my beauty day with my friend Charman Driver for #sharethemicnow (find out what she wants us to do with sardines everyday!), Thursday is all about travel essentials (it is essential that I travel, for sure) and Friday is fashion. More to come this weekend, with my space on Saturday and some techy biz on Sunday.
Make sure to follow along on Select’s IG this weekend – they’ve done a great job as an ally for BLM, they’re committing to feature more Black people, and POC, and their stories are always a welcome treat in my feed. You can find all of the Featured Guests here.
