SHOPPING FROM INSTAGRAM - HOW TO USE THE LIKETOKNOW.IT APP

If you are on the Instagram platform I'm sure you've scrolled across your favorite influencers post and read "Just follow me on the LIKETOKNOW.IT App and shop my look here"  Here is a "how to" for downloading the LikeToKnow.It App and shopping your favorite styles with a simple screenshot. FYI with the Nordstrom Sale coming up, this will be helpful for finding your favorite items before they sell out.

I have several influencers I love to follow for inspiration and styling tips. You can get creative with clothing and accessories you already own.

You can shop a look from head to toe, and here's how.

Download the LIKEtoKNOW.it app on your smartphone in the app store.

 App Store

App Store

If you follow me and other influencers on Instagram, you’re probably already familiar with the LIKEtoKNOW.it. platform. If you're not familiar, this app allows you to shop the outfits, home goods, and etc. your favorite influencers post on Instagram. When you screenshot the photo you will receive an email with the photo and the items you saw in your inbox. But... here's the easiest way...

There's an upgrade now, and you no longer need to check your email for shopping.

HOW DO YOU USE IT?

Once you download the app, simply search for your favorite influencers. Tap the search symbol at the bottom of your screen or type in the name at the top - ex: Janetgunngratefulgardenia - in the influencer search box.
You’ll see my account or your other favorites pop up quickly - simply tap "follow"  Once you are following me, all my posts will pop up in your LTK feed on the home screen. You can also just tap any photo of mine in the app and image product links will pop up and are ready to shop from.

STEP 1 - GO TO THE APP STORE

STEP 2 - TYPE IN LIKE TO KNOW IT

STEP 3 - DOWNLOAD THE APP

STEP 4 - TYPE JANETGUNNGRATEFULGARDENIA IN THE SEARCH BOX of the app

STEP 5 - CLICK FOLLOW

STEP 6 - CLICK IMAGES TO SHOP

STEP 7 - YOU’RE DONE!

It’s super easy and makes it so much simpler to shop your favorite looks. Now with the app, you no longer have to wait for an e-mail. You can still ‘like’ my photos on Instagram and get the email if that’s what you prefer!  The screenshot just simplifies and makes it much easier. So, if you ever see that little “heart” icon in the corner of my pics (on ANY influencer pg.), that mean’s you can get the outfit details through a screenshot. Not all of us use the heart image all the time, but if you have downloaded the app you'll know when we are posting a LIKETOKNOW.IT post. Influencers who are members of Rewards Style use the liketoknow,it app so we can   share our picks with you.

 Some images have the HEART symbol - some don't. (personal choice)

Some images have the HEART symbol - some don't. (personal choice)

Liketoknow.it is a helpful service for shopping your favorites. it's easy and after a few times, you'll see how simple it is.  it allows you to quickly buy anything you see in an Instagram Photo when you look at the "liketoknow.it tag. 

IMG_3350.jpg

 Just tap on the photo and you'll see the liketoknow.it tag (pictured above)  & other tags that might interest you. If you don't see the exact items in the photo available, we do our best to find other items that are similar and different price ranges. 

INSTA STORIES - ANOTHER SHOPPING OPTION

IMG_3371.jpg

Tap on Red circle above my name to see and shop Insta Stories.

IMG_3366.jpg

In the Instagram Stories - round icon at the top of page - scroll thru stories and you will sometimes see a "Swipe Up" option at the bottom right corner. Swipe up and the link to the item you like will take you directly to the site.

I hope this was helpful and now you can stay connected with the influencers you like to follow. Now that Instagram has added the IGTV - Instagram TV - most bloggers are spending time on the Instagram platform. We hope to see you there!

Have fun shopping & thank you for following along!

I've added a shopping carousel here as I do on most blog post if you are not on the Instagram platform.

IMANI COLLECTIVE

Recently my partner and friend Melissa Meyers were invited to an event with Rachel McCord from The McCord List to support entrepreneurs, brands and charities to connect and empower women, especially those who have or are overcoming life's biggest obstacles (like homelessness, abuse, trauma, depression, anxiety or bullying) I was so touched by the Imani Collective I felt it was important to share with you. I hope you can take a minute to read about Jenny Nuccio, and her motivation to get moving and make a difference.

 My companion was handmade by Grace Keya & she sits with Buster and I

My companion was handmade by Grace Keya & she sits with Buster and I

Imani Collective is a "community of dreamers + shakers who aren’t afraid to ask “why not?” Passionately pursuing a holistic approach to empowerment, they believe that once we realize what we’re made of, we can own what we’re made for. Convinced that we aren’t just better together — we’re our best together." 

The Imani Collective was started by Jenny Nuccio, who was new to the Mtepeni Village in Kenya. was new to Mtepeni Village, Kenya. She came straight from college with a vision to create meaningful employment and opportunities for the women there, but had a hard time getting her own water and would wheelbarrow thirty pounds of water every day. The other women in the village eventually helped her and they all became good friends. Jenny taught them how to sew and sixteen women started Imani Collective and yes, it takes a village.

Now, the Imani Collective has over fifty men and women in the Mtepeni Village as well as half a dozen women stateside.

RED HOT WITH FIAT

Thinking about what it is that makes me so happy when I'm driving my Fiat500 has led me to believe this was my "mid life crisis car" who need a fancy sports car when you can have a Fiat!  Zipping around in my Fiat500 gives me that feeling of being in Italy. There's just something nostalgic, carefree and flat out fun and at this stage in my life I'm all for finding the joy! Come destress with me at LACMA and maybe consider a simple new ride in your driveway.

LACMA Is one of my favorite places to go in Los Angeles as there are so many things to do and see there. 

Admission is affordable. For adults it is free for members and $20 for adults if you live in L.A. County. Children 17 & Under have free admission and it is also free admission after 3 pm Mon-Fri.  If you don't live in L.A. County, it is free for members, $25 for adults and still free for children 17 & Under. 

Here's a great idea for an L.A. Friday night, how about enjoying a different Jazz Artist every Friday starting at 6 pm. 

What goes with a Fiat? Borsalino and Gucci... va tutto bene!

LITTLE BLUE TRAVEL DRESS

The minute we begin to plan our summer vacation I begin to go on the hunt for stylish dresses that effortlessly pack. It's not always so easy to find dresses that cover up all the right places, but this little number worked for me.

_H2A4150_preview.jpeg

I came across this blue dress from Planet Blue  I'm always a fan of their flowy dresses perfect for summer and especially an Italian holiday! 

With this dress, all you need is a pair of  simple sandals and your favorite crossbody and of course add a pretty wedge sandal for the evening.

DERMAFLASH - 2.0 FACIAL EXFOLATION

To shave or not to shave...

IMG_8309.jpg

Meet DERMAFLASH 2.0: This sleek device does the trick for exfoliation while removing peach fuzz, dead skin cells, and built-up debris. Dermaflash also evens out your skin tone and allows makeup to set evenly on your face. Your skin feels smoother and you're left with a healthy glow. It's super easy to use and takes about 5-10 minutes, so if you're someone always on the go and can't quite take the time for an office visit, this product will happily meet your needs. I've personally been shaving my face for years, I was never a fan of peach fuzz or dry skin so when Dermaflash developed this patented, safe and hygienic at-home device, needless to say, I was thrilled to receive it and now experience it first hand. 

STEP BY STEP:

1. Cleanse your skin with the PREFLASH cleanser and pat dry.

2. Insert a new Edge into your DERMAFLASH and start the treatment right in front of your ear, at the top of your cheekbone.

3. With your other hand, hold your skin tight and use short, feathery strokes. Glide the DERMAFLASH inward towards your nose over the contours of your cheek and the entire side of your face.

4. Avoid the eyelid, eyebrows, hairline, and sides of the nose and lips. 

5. Don't go over any facial area more than once. 

6. After - apply a thin layer of the POSTFLASH hydrator or one of my favorites Instytutum's Serum or lifting cream over your face and enjoy your glow!

7. Once a week is all you need - your peach fuzz will not grow in thicker!

 Small enough to travel with

 Dermaflash comes with: blades/cleanser & hydrator / charger / Make sure to remove the plastic covering inside the charger before using. Remove the blade before placing into the charger. Dermaflash was invented by a woman for women so thank you, Dara Levy, for giving women an option to safely and happily get rid of unwanted facial hair and exfoliate dry skin at home.

COOLA FOR THE SUMMER

Countdown to summer has officially begun and COOLA'S got you covered! I've also added a few of my favorite sun screens that I never leave home without.

IMG_0495_Facetune_26-05-2018-19-08-05.JPG

Thanks to COOLA'S organic sunless mousse you can feel great about bronzing your bod. This tanning mouse is cruelty-free, no GMO'S, vegan. and very little fragrance. I suggest you apply once to see how you like the color then darken from there. It works fast, I recommend you apply with a damp sponge to get inside the creases. I ended up with a beautiful color after two applications. I was able to maintain my bronze color for a good two weeks after my spray tan.

 COOLA SPORT spf 50 Sunscreen Spray

COOLA SPORT spf 50 Sunscreen Spray

Before every vacation, I do get a spray tan. Mainly because it evens out my skin and It looks like I've been enjoying the sunshine and not baking in it. Spray tans of course fade after a few days so to keep that glow going I used Coola, not only for the beautiful color but for protection from the sun. This Broad Spectrum unscented spray sunscreen is fantastic. It's water-resistant, unscented and certified organic, and super convienent for the family.

7516826656_IMG_2907.JPG

SuperGoop setting powder SPF 45 - CC Cream Sunscreen SPF 35 - Mineral Sunscreen SPF 40 - I used these for ten days during our trip to Hawaii while surfing, sunning and running and our faces never burned. The powder is so easy to use, great to keep that in your bag for quick touch ups.

IMG_8625.JPG

Another dependable brand is Colorscience - whipped mineral sunscreen and Broad Spectrum SPF 50 brush-on-sunscreen. These products are non-chemical, protective and water resistant (40 minutes.) They're easy to apply and leave a beautiful finish to your complexion. This also is great if you're out sight-seeing it's so creamy and light, it gives you a flawless finish.

IMG_2136.jpg

If you wondering what self-tanners and sunscreens for you and your family this summer; I  highly recommend COOLA - Supergoop  and Colorscience. While you're in the sun your skin will be shaded.

I'd love to know what your favorite self-tanners are and your favorite sun protectors.

Thanks for reading, have fun in the sun and stay safe!

WORKOUT WEAR: Can't go wrong with the Sweaty Betty lifestyle and fitness brand. Their new collection launched at Nordstrom this month.

NEW PURSE: Time for a new bag? 

HAT ATTACK: What's better to enjoy the beach or pool with than a stylish hat? Protect your skin, while looking fab.

Yes.. these boots are comfortable and a fun burst of color. This Gucci bag is about 15 years old, it's always a good idea to invest in those pieces that really never go out of style, so if you have a few hiding in your closet...bust them out!
