I’m Hosting An Instameet!

Instameet Invite

Calling all New Orleans area Instagram lovers! Instamgramming with other creatives is way better than doing it alone, right?! So The Made In Mind Social is hosting our first Instameet photo walk on Saturday, April 19th at 3pm and I hope you can make it! You don’t have to be a photographer or even an Instagrammer to attend. You can bring a cell phone, a digital camera, heck, even a disposable camera if you want to participate!

  • We’ll have a suggested path mapped out which we’ll walk together and snap photos along the way!
  • We are working on a fun scavenger hunt list if you want to challenge yourself during the walk!
  • We’ll also determine and ending spot to mingle a little after!

The route is still in the works but we will send an email to everyone who has RSVPd.

FREE TO ATTEND – CLICK HERE TO RSVP

Also, our super awesome sponsor Sticky9 is gifting each attendee with a free pack of their Instagram magnets! You choose nine of your own Instagram photos and get them back as magnets. They are super cool, I’ve written about them here before!

Baking A King Cake

Carnival season is in full swing here in New Orleans and king cakes are for sale everywhere! When I was living in Boston I really missed Mardi Gras and king cakes, so one year Zander and I decided to try baking one. I meant to post a recipe and photos to the blog but never got around to it even though I took pictures of the process. So I’m resurrecting the photos for y’all today! It came out pretty messy and lopsided, but it tasted great and made me miss home a little less!

Homestead: Out & About New Orleans

Out and About Homestead New Orleans

Homestead is a new mom and pop-style shop in the heart of Uptown New Orleans. It’s filled with superior quality goods for home and life and I’m totally in love! They have gorgeous products like marble cheese boards, wool scarves, memo books and gardening tools with wooden handles. Homestead was created by urban farmer Robert Hohne, of Truck and Barter Farms, and vintage rental company owner Julia Hohne of Mrs. Vintage. I also snapped some photos of the Mrs. Vintage showroom!
