Describe your brand in 140 characters?

Meet Me At Mike‘s is a guide to nice times, DIY and general good stuff for ace people!

 

Where can people find you?

Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook and another Facebook!

 

If you could only pick one social media platform, which would it be and why?

If I had to pick I’d choose Facebook because there’s more room for flaws and dorky back-and-forth chatter. It’s a bit less polished, which I like.

 

Who are your top three social media accounts to follow?

I love following my friend, author and designer Michelle Mackintosh because she always puts a beautiful twist on life. The Letterettes are the cutest calligraphing girl squad ever. And Beci always has interesting and quirky things to show and tell.

I would always pick Instagram as it comes most naturally to me. I’m constantly inspired by the visual world around me so I love being able to capture images when I’m out and about and curate them in my feed. It’s improved my styling and composition without it feeling like a chore and I also love how much inspiration I draw from other people and the mini communities that form.

I love the visual feast that is Rebecca Iris’ Instagram account. She has a real eye for beautiful buildings and striking composition. I also love following the beautiful account of Boccaccini Meadows, which is full to the brim with her intricately hand painted illustrations and patterns.

For general crafty inspiration then I would always says Fall For DIY across the board. Fran oozes creativity and her DIY projects are the best around!

Matt Crump‘s feed is a constant source of inspiration. Whether he’s showing you a crazy beautiful skyline or carefully arranged, colorful objects, there’s always something to get lost in on his feed!

Vickie Liu and I have been following each other since the beginning of our Instagram journey, and she’s got an insane talent for baking! As soon as you think she’s made the most amazing cookies or donuts you’ve ever seen, she goes and outdoes herself with another crazy creation!
