Dear Spring,

I had so much fun spending the day with you. I feel so alive when surrounded in your beauty and I always love our inspiring conversations.

This year in Los Angeles the superblooms have been just that…super. I spent the morning in Malibu with Melissa Meyers and photographer Stefanie Marie and we couldn’t stop smiling. Between the daisies and the painted lady butterflies that migrated in from Mexico, it was a joyful day. When spring and summer hit the calendar I pretty much live in Natalie Martin and now these sandals from R0AM Foot Wear have taken over my feet!

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.

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)

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.

VITAMIN SEA BEAUTY IS CALLING YOU

Have you had your Vitamin Sea today? Are you ready for a dose of beauty?  The Sea is calling you! On Wednesday, July 26th at 10 am CST  (8 am PST) and 7 pm CST (5 pm PST)  I'll be live on EVINE,  an American cable, satellite, and broadcast television network. I hope you can join me for the premiere launch of Vitamin Sea Beauty, developed by Mark Freeman; from Freeman Cosmetics, Mark is a true native Southern California, born and raised and comes from three generations of beauty professionals. Now Mark brings us these rich & luxurious masks and face scrub.  Vitamin Sea Beauty was created last year while on a family vacation and Mark noticed how fresh and rejuvenated his skin felt, just from being in the sea. He thought, why not take the powers of the Sea and develop the most innovative skin care with the latest technologies and natural ingredients. Vitamin Sea Beauty, promotes that same healthy, youthful skin, just like you are stepping out of the sea. 

WHY THE SEA?

The sea’s abundance of natural and pure beauty benefiting resources help revitalize, nourish, and retain moisture in our skin. Sea plants are rich in vitamins, minerals, proteins, and amino acids...all things we need for proper body balance & function. These plants provide hydration, healing, detoxifying, and restorative properties, while defending against aging, protecting against UV lights, and helping to prevent acne. Naturally occurring in and around our great bodies of water, the ingredients in our VitaminSea.beauty line promote healthy, youthful skin

Who doesn't love the way the skin feels when we're by the Sea? We look and feel hydrated, moisturized and even rejuvenated. I personally long for that feeling all year round. These masks are clean and simple, use three to four times a week for eight to ten minutes a day and you'll begin to see a brightness with your complexion, and you'll feel great for taking time for yourself, and your skin will thank you.

Sea Salt & Coconut Brightening Face Scrub; Sea Salt is a natural exfoliator and the added coconut oil helps to lock in the moisture. I have thin and sometimes sensitive skin, this scrub is not abrasive at all. My teenage son is using this on his face for blackheads and it's working! Plus it's hard to resist the light fragrance of coconuts. Thumbs up review for the men and the teenagers in the home.  

Sea Kelp & Cucumber -Soothing & Smoothing Mask;  Cucumber is a natural toner, just mention cucumbers and I'm daydreaming about the spa. Sea Kelp is loaded with calcium, fluoride, and magnesium, along with being rich in antioxidants. Sea plants are resilient and constantly adapting to our often-changing environment.  Cucumbers are great for reducing those dark circles under the eyes along with reducing swelling and puffiness. Your skin will feel and look hydrated. That's what we lose so much of after we hit forty and over. Having dry skin leads to a dull appearance, and that leads to aging skin.  Masks are a simple and proactive way to get your skin healthy looking again.

Black Sea Mud & Charcoal- Cooling & Antioxidant Face Mask -  Black Sea Mud increases circulation in your skin, helping bring vital nutrients to your cells and you can begin to say "bye-bye" to toxins. Charcoal's natural detoxifying abilities draw out impurities, and mask's high concentration of essential minerals will nourish, soften, and dramatically improve your skin's tone & texture. My husband used this mask and said "his skin looked healthy & clean, along with, he felt good for taking a little time to care for his skin"  This is also a fun gift idea for your girlfriends or teenagers. Give the gift of a return to the Sea. I just love that Vitamin Sea Beauty is for the whole family...families that "masks" together stays together...

Blue Sea Kale & Grapefruit - Deep Pore Exfoliating Mask - If you're more on the oily side you'll love this mask. The first thing I noticed when I rinsed off this mask, my skin was brighter. The Vitamin C from the grapefruit along with Vitamin A, C, K from the Sea Kale is another excellent way to wake up your skin. I also have age spots that appeared a little lighter.  I just love that Vitamin Sea Beauty is for the whole family...families that "masks" together stays together...Or I could just be glowing from the reflection of the family member starring at me...
