Are Influencers Ruining Instagram?

“Not another product post. Please, for the love.”

This is what goes through my head when I’m scrolling through Instagram lately. Now don’t get me wrong, I love the ads. The ads are interesting, highly-targeted, and show me things I might actually be interested in (thank you, marketers). I might be one of the few people who is obsessed with ads, but hey, no apologies. What has been grating on me are influencer posts promoting every product under the sun.

NYFW and Race: We Have A Problem

I’ll be the first to say that I love New York Fashion Week. Twice per year [more if you count international shows and previews], we catch a glimpse into the possibilities for the upcoming season. From colors and patterns, to daring cuts and mastery in tailoring, we get to see the best in business arrive and show us that the best is still ahead.But much like a parent to their rebel child, we need to have a talk. A serious talk.
