Happy 2019, InstantBosses!
If you’ve been following us since our first blog then you know that we’re always scouring the internet for influencers that are killing the social media game!
We decided to do things differently.
Instead of going from one social media profile to another looking for who to follow, we looked around the neighborhood. (Our CEO lives in Dallas, TX)
Trust us when we say that Texas has some of the most amazing influencers.
If you are looking for inspiration on anything to do with fashion, beauty, travel, family, fitness, and family, then these influencers have got your back.
If you’re looking for partnerships and JVCs with influencers in Texas, these lasses will come to your rescue for sure.
But who are they?
1. Emily Herren
Emily Herren didn’t feel celebrated growing up.
Everyone around her asked why she was always dressed up.
They asked why she was always made up too.
It was hard the fashionista she was, but she loved every moment of it.
If no one was going to celebrate her fashion, hair, and makeup, it was going to be their loss and not hers.
She loved herself.
She loved her hair.
She loved makeup.
She loved fashion.
She developed her love for fashion while embracing herself as an outcast.
Believing that fashion is the perfect outlet that provides the boost of confidence to look and feel your best, she created Champagne and Chanel to help you and me discover what fashion can do for us.
2. Brittany Dawn
Brittany Dawn is the owner and founder of a powerful online community: brittany_dawn_fitness, which fosters self-acceptance and empowerment.
But founding a community wasn’t the only goal Brittany wanted to achieve with her coaching.
As a PNBA Bikini Pro and NASM Fitness-Nutrition Certified Trainer, she wanted to coach men and women who were focused on strength training and balanced eating in person and online to hit their weight goals.
She has managed to coach over 5000 people and is open to helping many more. Not a fan of Instagram?
You can keep up with Brittany and all things related to health, fitness, and lifestyle on her YouTube channel.
3. Brighton Keller
With a killer smile like this, who wouldn’t want to follow Brighton?
We can’t have enough of her.
We can’t have enough of her “real” lifestyle-type content too.
Brighton through her profile, @brightonkeller, continues to motivate and inspire us and women around the world to be their BEST self through beauty-inspo, cute outfits, organization tips, self-care, and more!
4. Ashley Robertson
Ashley Robertson developed two passions young: a heart for educating young minds and a love for fashion.
In college, she pursued her first dream, teaching.
She graduated with a Bachelor of Early Childhood Education Degree and a Master of Literacy Degree.
She spent six years in the classroom teaching first graders and kindergarteners to pursue their dreams, explore their creative outlets and take a chance on learning without fear.
She quit teaching to pursue her second passion, fashion.
She birthed The Teacher Diva where she shares with her readers the latest inspiration in fashion, travel, lifestyle and home decor.
When she isn’t at her desk working, she’s spending time with her husband, family or volunteering at her local elementary school.
5. Alexis Belbel
Meet the former co-owner of Double Dose Fitness, Alexis Belbel.
They paired to create A Double Dose after they walked away from their corporate jobs at a public accounting firm.
Both girls are 5’1” and petite, but don’t be fooled by their small size; these girls can eat as much food as they can put away.
They love food, staying active and fit and love encourage you to do the same.
6. Lauren Vandiver Green
Lauren is the adorable mother to the very cute Everly.
Her addiction to fashion and color birthed the Vandi Fair, where she shares positive imagery and messaging that uplifts, brings joy, and ultimately inspires to be bold, fearless and fun in fashion every day.
Besides inspiration, her desire is that you leave her profile with a smile.
7. Dani Austin
Her posts are humorous.
Her videos are hilarious.
She owns the Sassy Club, a community that’s geared towards like-minded women on the interweb and in the flesh.
We loved her disclaimer:
People on the internet are the bomb and loving, sometimes they send me things they want me to try out too! Sometimes I get the opportunity to try and review products sent by brands for consideration but of course, thoughts and views expressed are always honest and totally my opinion.
Here’s our own disclaimer.
We loved the Wedding Wednesdays more and as new subs, we understand that you get married once, but we’d like new wedding episodes!
Dani, we hope you read that 🙂

Janene confessed that Diet Coke and chocolate are her weakness, of course, after her family.

The sight of Cambodia went with everywhere she went.
She didn’t know what to do. So, she prayed for God to send her sign.

She loved taking photos, so starting a blog would be the right thing to do – the only way to save Cambodia.
