Sometimes it’s tough trying to explain to my family and friends what’s on my holiday wish list without physically showing it to them.
So, this year, I’m taking a new approach. While I’ve been social shopping and browsing stores, I’ve snapped photos of my favorite items so I can add them to a “visual” wish list. And I’m not taking any old photos. I’m using Instagram – the smart phone app that allows you to put different filters - and give a little more edge- to the photos you take (see below for pics from my trip to Banana Republic earlier this week).
New to Instagram? It’s easy. Just download the app to your smart phone. Then click share, snap a pic, spice it up, and presto! You can instantly upload it to the Instagram community and share with your friends and family via Facebook and Twitter.
If you’re already an Instagram fan, be sure to stop by Banana Republic. From now through November 23rd, you can enter their Ultimate New Year’s Eve Contest. Just submit a photo of your favorite Banana Republic party look via Instagram and share on Twitter with #BRPartyLook. You’ll immediately be entered to win a trip for you and five friends to attend the red carpet, New York City premiere of “New Year’s Eve”. Check out the Banana Republic Facebook page for more details.
