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.

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.

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)

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.

 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

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

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.

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY

Happy Fourth of July!  Fellow blogger and friend Melissa Meyers and I want to wish everyone a safe, happy and peaceful Fourth of July.  I've rounded up just a few of my summer favorites for a little retail therapy.

If you love traveling in Italy and haven't visited this region, Puglia is absolutely beautiful and special in every way.

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!

Just keep putting it out there, be your own artist and create, paint sculpt your life. It's all a journey, and it's your journey to express.

Levitated Mass is a 2012 large-scale sculpture by Michael Heizer on the campus of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
