Photo of @flourshop by @elizabethrenstrom “People eat with their eyes, so who wouldn’t want to eat a rainbow? Or a unicorn?” asks Amirah Kassem, the baker and founder of Flour Shop (@flourshop). 🌈🦄 Five years ago, Amirah couldn’t afford a website and started her business on Instagram. “For many years that was the only way to place an order,” explains Amirah. Last month, she opened her very own brick-and-mortar shop in the SoHo neighborhood of New York City. Her number one inspiration when dreaming up her bright and playful treats? “My childhood! There are so many things we tend to forget as adults — like how fun imagination and blowing bubbles can be — so I try to hold on to that eating-ice-cream-for-breakfast mentality.” Watch our story to learn about Amirah’s affinity for all things rainbow and unicorn, and follow along on #IGYearInReview as we reflect on the most memorable Instagram trends of 2017.

The 24-year-old from Jakarta, Indonesia, started working as a beauty content creator in 2010. “It’s been a long time, but I’m still learning, too,” she says. “My work opened up an unexpected path for me. I have traveled to various places and venues as a speaker about entrepreneurship in the digital age.” Check out our story to learn more about Cheryl and her makeup routine.

Featured photo by @salvarezphoto Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPclassic The goal this weekend is to create photos and videos that display a timeless quality. Whether you’re nostalgic for a past era or inspired by traditions that stand the test of time, share what classic means to you: Look for local scenes that conjure up familiar feelings — like a family picnic, a cozy coffee shop or a commuter dashing through the city. To make details ageless, be deliberate about what you do (and don’t) show. Don’t take any gesture or expression for granted. Instead, pull out the patterns in how people and animals interact. PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHPclassic hashtag only to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.

Video by @made_by_helga Visual artist Helga Stentzel (@made_by_helga) believes in the beauty of imperfections. “All these ‘alleged’ defects give subjects their uniqueness and, often, transform them into objects of art,” says Helga, who lives in London. Since childhood, she’s been a creative thinker and an artist, and her account reflects her out-of-the-box ideas. She names simplicity as her top inspiration and calls herself a minimalist. “With the help of just a few lines, I manage to turn an ordinary object into something unexpected. In my work, there are no complex textures or shapes; I consciously try to avoid them, so as not to distract the viewer’s attention from the beauty of ordinary things.” Watch today’s story to see more of Helga’s creations.

Video by @cacalazzari “I think I’ve been chosen by music,” says Cacá Lazzari (@cacalazzari), who lives in Rio de Janeiro. “Music is my life, my religion, my everything.” Cacá started drumming when he was just 3 years old, and now the 29-year-old musician plays five hours every day. “Drums are the instrument I’ve always loved, and the instrument I think I can express myself better than any other,” he says.
