    Happy Tuesday Ya’ll ♥

    After a long vacay in Florida + a relaxing President’s Day Weekend, I am back at it…one of my first projects to tackle? Creating more fun content for all of you! (luckily this is something I love to do so content creation comes easy + is fun – the way it should be)!

    I LOVED all of the positive feedback from ya’ll on my Photo Editing 101 post where I shared my tips + tricks for editing photos to create a chic + clean instagram feed. My Instagram aesthetic is light + airy, with pops of color (because who doesn’t love a little bright spot when scrolling through their Instagram feed)?!

    Anyways, today I wanted to share a little DIY tutorial for something I have been seeing all over Instagram – Instagram Story Highlight Icons!

    ICYMIInstagram Story Highlight Icons are the little icons that are displayed when adding Instagram story highlights to your profile. Instagram allows you to edit the ‘highlight‘ cover image for each highlight series you create so while you can just choose to have one of the posts from your highlight be the cover image, a lot of people on Instagram have been creating custom icons for different categories of their highlighted posts i.e Fashion, Beauty, Travel etc!

    I right away began bugging my boyfriend to help me make them since he is the photo editing + graphics wiz BUT I ended up figuring out how to create them all on my own + wanted to share!

    STEP 1 – Create Categories

    • Come up with your categories for your Instagram story highlights. I determined mine based on the type of content I post often enough so Fashion, Beauty, Lifestyle, Travel + Unboxing. Categories are completely up to YOU but having an idea of which ones you want will be helpful when choosing icons down the line 🙂

    STEP 2 – Choose Your Program

    • If you are familiar with Photoshop, you can create the highlight images in there OR choose a different more user friendly program like Canva which is super easy to use + has icons built in for you to choose from.
    • Photoshop is great too but you will have to find your icon choices on the web + upload them later (which I did as well for Canva – all about preference in icons).

    STEP 3 – Start Your Project

    • Instagram Story Dimensions are: 1080 x 1920 pixels
    • Open up your preferred program + begin a blank project using those dimensions

    STEP 4 – Choose Your Background

    • Below is a screen grab from Canva but Photoshop is very similar with the paint bucket tool. Simply choose your desired color or pattern for the background of the image.

    STEP 5 – Choose Your Icons

    • Now for the fun part! Choosing your icons.
    • If you use Canva, you can click the ‘elements‘ tab + choose from clipart they have. There are free + premium options all based on your aesthetic!
      • I personally used Canva to create my images BUT actually found my icons on IconFinder.com
      • IF you prefer to find your own icons all you have to do is go to IconFinder.com or another similar website + type in the type of icon you are looking for i.e. ‘airplane’ ‘high heel’ etc.
      • They also have tons of free + premium options to choose from, some even include sets so all of your icons look consistent but that is up to you!
        • Just click the icon you like + hit download – easy as 1,2,3!

    STEP 6 – Add Your Icons

    • If you are using clipart or icons you found, simply upload them to the project and place them in the center of the canvas (easier to center on Instagram this way).
    • You can also feel free to add text as well if that is something of interest however it will be tiny + hard to read on Instagram so I would recommend against it.

    STEP 7 – Save Your Project

    • So you can make duplicate canvas’s + then save each one with a different icon or open multiple projects using the same dimensions, completely up to you.
    • After you are finished, simply save the projects as JPEG + then you can email them to yourself or use cloud sharing or Dropbox to get them all on your phone.

    STEP 8 – Upload Your Images

    • Upload the images from your camera roll as normal parts of your insta-story
    • Then you add them to their proper highlight categories

    STEP 9 – Edit Your Cover

    • Simply go to the highlight, click the bottom right corner (it’s 3 little dots like this …) + hit ‘edit highlight’
    • Choose the image you just uploaded + voila you have your cover image set!!

    Happy Weekend Babes ♥

    I am finally flying back from sunny filled Florida this weekend after a lovely two week vacation…much needed after being long distance with my boo for months! We celebrated our anniversary, my birthday and Valentine’s Day at Disney, Universal + at the beach…what more can a gal ask for?! #ThisIsMyHappyPlace 

    I am already plotting my next trip + I for sure want to make it another sunny paradise…so I decided to round up my favorite essentials for a beach getaway. Whether it’s a weekend trip or longer vacay, these accessories + must-haves will get you through your sunny trip in style!

    HATS

    I am LOVING this ‘Life’s a Beach‘ hat from The Mint Julep! It was the perfect way to protect my skin from too much sun exposure + it is honestly the cutest for flatlaying on the beach haha :p P.S. they have TONS of fun floppy hat options with different sayings!

    SANDALS

    Tory Burch has always been my go-to when it comes to sandals. They are great quality, comfy + I tend to opt for a metallic hue that matches with every look + accentuates your tan on the beach 😉

    SUNNIES

    I have been loving these fun sunnies from Diff Eyewear! They always have great sales, even better styles + I don’t stress about them getting scratched or anything at the beach because they have an affordable price point (as opposed to RayBans :p).

    SWIMWEAR + COVERUPS

    I had no clue Vera Bradley had such great swimwear + coverups till recently + now I am officially in love. They have great prints, cuts + styles that are easy to wear + comfy too!

    TOTES

    Valentine’s Day may be over butlove is still in the air if you ask me  I found this shoot I did at the ‘Love Wall’ in Culver City a year ago + decided it was about time to post it…ya know because why not 😉 That’s the part I love about living in LA, there are so many fun walls all over the city just waiting for the perfect insta snap to be taken in front of! Hey…it’s a blogger’s paradise! This wall was crazy busy the weeks leading up to Valentine’s Day for obvious reasons but what I also found was cute was that it wasn’t just bloggers taking photos. It was couples taking engagement photos, little kids having their parents take their photos making silly faces etc. It’s kinda cute how a colorful wall can bring joy to so many different people of all different walks of life…the love wall…spreads…L O V E!

    Love is in the air…♥

    Valentine’s Day is just a day away and that means finding that last minute outfit! Luckily I rounded up a few of my go-to little red dresses for the special night all available in store + online (with an in store pickup option). I for one am super excited for V-Day since this past weekend was my anniversary + I spent it sick as a dog in bed sooo I am looking forward to a romantic date night with my boo. After an amazing week at Universal + Disney, I ended the trip on a real high note with a lovely ear infection + horrible cold…yea talk about fun :p I guess life couldn’t be all fun + games huh? haha Anyways…to distract myself from this terrible cold, I am dreaming of the perfect date night look.

    ICYMI – I rounded up some of my favorite looks for the day of love a little earlier in the month here. I think I am going to go for a little red dress like this one just to stay festive for the occasion hehe :pmissyonmadison, missyonmadison instagram, melissa tierney, melissa tierney instagram, valentines day, valentines day 2018, valentines day date night, date night outfit, date night look, valentines day 2018 look, valentines day 2018 outfit, date night style, date night look, what to wear for valentines day, little red dress, red fit and flare dress, red sleeveless dress, black ankle strap heels, black ankle strap sandals, gucci mini bag, black gucci mini bag, fashion blogger, style blogger, style blog, date night looks, fresh roses, love wall culver city, love wall, love wall LA,missyonmadison, missyonmadison instagram, melissa tierney, melissa tierney instagram, valentines day, valentines day 2018, valentines day date night, date night outfit, date night look, valentines day 2018 look, valentines day 2018 outfit, date night style, date night look, what to wear for valentines day, little red dress, red fit and flare dress, red sleeveless dress, black ankle strap heels, black ankle strap sandals, gucci mini bag, black gucci mini bag, fashion blogger, style blogger, style blog, date night looks, fresh roses, love wall culver city, love wall, love wall LA,

    It wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day in LA without taking photos in front of the ‘Love Wall‘ in Culver City…There was a legit line to take photos in front of this wall (and we shot this towards the end of January) haha but hey in such an insta-friendly town what do you expect 😉

    I paired this red fit & flare with black ankle strap heeled sandals + my favorite Gucci mini bag which is perfect for date night. It has enough room for all of your essentials + is easy to wear for dinner + even dancing afterwards (if you are into that sort of thing)…my babe + I aren’t big dancers haha so we will just stick with the dinner 😉

    Funny enough I will be celebrating Valentine’s Day not on V-Day. While I love the occasion, when you go out on V Day I find menus to be changed, restaurants to be crowded + overall less romantic. So my honey + I are opting for celebrating Valentine’s Day over the weekend instead so we can actually order what we like off the menu AND can avoid crowds! Now that sounds like the perfect plan to me 😉

    Struggling with winter skin problems? Yea, I feel ya. With winter months my combination skin is always acting up. One day it is oily + I am breaking out and the next day I have dry skin + am peeling…sometimes you can’t win…or can you? 😉 I found my magic potion to cure my #winterskinproblems! What is it you ask? Olay Whips!

    So here is my constant struggle + from chatting with my girlfriends it seems to be quite common…moisturizers are essential to achieve healthy skin but sometimes they make your skin oily. With my combination skin, I am always searching for a moisturizer that helps hydrate my skin but does so without feeling heavy on my skin…that’s why when I discovered Olay Whips I was super excited to give it a go.

    Olay Whips (available now at Walgreen’s) feel light as air and are delightfully whipped for instant absorption on your skin. The weightless formula leaves your skin feeling soft & smooth with a matte finish (making your skin smooth to the touch). Honestly what I love most about this product is that it almost acts as a primer too, applying your makeup after applying Olay Whips goes on beyond smooth.

    If you are opting to go all natural with your beauty look + just go out with nothing but your moisturizer on, luckily Olay Whips has a brightening formula which helps even your skin tone + minimize the appearance of pores! This is a major win for me – I have been applying Olay Whips before the gym + I look like I am glowing while working up a sweat spinning.

    Happy B I R T H D A Y to M E ♥ 

    It’s official…I am 26 today + although I am another year older I am still a kid at ♥ so I am celebrating my birthday at the most magical place on earthDISNEY! Spending my birthday with my partner in crime AND Mickey + Minnie, could life get any better? I think not hehe 😉 People have always said your mid-twenties into your thirties are your best years because you begin to feel comfortable with the skin you are in, you stop taking shit from people + you learn more about yourself each + everyday. Well I always learn new things everyday + every year I feel a bit wiser but this year…I truly found happiness + what my aspirations, goals + dreams are in life.

    This year was a big one for me.

    I found my best friend + partner in crime, we went through being long distance while he was away in London, I actually traveled outside the country to visit him, we went to Paris – one of my dreams, I bought my first Chanel (in Paris) + my first Mercedes, I landed my dream job doing what I love working from home, connecting brands with perfectly paired influencers AND I am now celebrating my birthday and anniversary in Orlando having the time of my life. I must say…this year, life has been pretty damn good.

    So what have I learned from becoming another year older (and hopefully another year wiser) :p Well, I have a few things..

    One: Never take shit from anyone…seriously. Whether it is your family, friends, boss etc. Stand strong, stand up for what you believe in + stand up for your morals + what you feel is right. As you get older, you don’t just sit + take it, you strive for more, you stand up + want to be heard + respected, you want to be YOU.

    TWO: Take care of yourself, put yourself first. This means whether it comes to your health, happiness or anything else, you must put what is best for you above whatever else is happening in life. I used to over extend myself + never say NO to any project or event etc. Now I learned that me being worn out + exhausted isn’t doing anyone any good, so I make sure to balance + take time for me.

    Three: Never take life too seriously. I used to be a notorious worry wart. I had anxiety over absolutely everything + it stopped me from feeling 100% confident with who I was + what I was doing. What changed this? As corny as it sounds…my relationship. I used to think what people thought of me + my relationships were more important than what my thoughts or feelings were. Fast forward a year later I traded in fancy dinners for Wednesday half price games at Dave & Buster’s + would rather spend my weekends relaxing watch South Park than being out + about every second of the day. It’s funny how once you get older you learn more about yourself + what truly makes you happy…this year, that was my number ONE lesson in life. Sometimes what you think will make you happen doesn’t + instead life surprises you with plans that make you wonder what you were missing out on in life before!

    I fully jumped on the body suit bandwagon because they help suck everything in + look great when paired with my favorite skater skirts. For this look I picked a white lace body suit (also perfect for Valentine’s Day) + paired it with a white skater skirt

    I had to add some birthday flare to this look with these bedazzled platform heels from Betsey Johnson (because every gal should sparkle on her birthday)!

    It’s FINALLY here!

    Mike + I are off to Disney World in Orlando today (our flight is later on tonight) so I spent last night packing my life into 2 suitcases haha(see more on my instastoriesMissyOnMadison)! We are celebrating my birthday which is just days away + our anniversary and what better place to do that than at the most magical place on earth – DISNEY! I have been such a Disney (and Universal fan) ever since I was a kid. My family used to go all the time + we went to all of the parks + would have breakfast + dinner with our favorite characters. Although I am turning 26 (crazy how fast time is passing by) I am still such a kid at ♥ so that’s why I am sharing some of my favorite Disney pieces to rock at the park or just in general!

    I actually found this Mickey + Minnie tee for just $5 (YES just $5) at Walmart! It comes in a variety of sizes + is perfect if you are trying to dress for the occasion on a budget 🙂

    CLOTHES

    These sneakers aren’t Disney related haha BUT they make for a comfy shoe to wear to the park + cost under $40!!! I was going to splurge on a bag too but this time didn’t but I am obsessed with all of these accessories below.

    SHOES, BAGS + JEWELS

    Now for the fun part…my Minnie Mouse Ears! Ok so Mike thinks I am crazy, but how adorable are these customized Minnie Ears I scored for under $40 on Etsy! I wanted to be prepared + save money before going to the park and discovered Etsy is filled with TONS of customized Minnie Ears.

    MINNIE EARS
