Instagram Inspirations ~ Sarah from Shop with Sarah

As we reach the nine month of living in our wonky Brooklyn apartment, I noticed that we have somehow managed to gain more 'stuff'. We moved in with only four bag packs, bought the necessary items to live a glamping lifestyle in the city and we had to buy some extra clothes for this winter. But somehow certain extra items moved in as well - even though it's not a lot, it starts to bug me - so it's time to sort things out... That's when I thought of my Instapal Sarah and how I wished she could help me organize better.

Meet Sarah Shanahan - professional organizer, product and food stylist. Her cleaning routine last month made me have a closer look at my sorting out routine (conclusion: I have no such routine to speak off...).

Sarah and I connected over Instagram and we even met in person when she was here a couple months ago, visiting New York city with her friend Jody, all the way from Australia! They had a full week of exploring planned and it was great to wander around Brooklyn and explore this part of the city together.

Sarah is also the founder of Shopping with Sarah - her bespoke interior shopping tours in her hometown Adelaide. The tours are always quickly filled so if you live in Adelaide, or you're visiting, sign up quickly to reserve your place.

What attracted my eye on her Instagram account, is that it's a great source of finding a new brand and I love her way of styling a flatlay photo - Sarah loves to create these and it shows.

 

When I received her unexpected presents in the mail, I was really touched - now I have a little bit of Adelaide with me. And like me, many others love her positive attitude in life and I'm glad to call her my friend. Now let's hope one day soon I can join one of her fun tours!
