3 To Follow: Social Media Stars
Who: Angie Weihs
Where: California, United States
Angie Weihs isn’t just an Instagram fashionista, she’s a coach and “life stylist.” Her experiences are diverse (she owns an event planning company and authored Ageless Rebel: The Empowering Planner and Playful Journal to Create Your Beautifully, Fearless, Ageless Mindset and Lifestyle. It’s a mouthful, but the concept is simple: Bring mind and body together for ageless power.
Being Valentine’s Day, we are especially intrigued with her coaching experience. “On a very practical level I coached close to a thousand wedding couples and families in their wedding planning process; stress, anxiety, melt downs, money issues, fights between moms and daughters, Bridezillas syndromes, even doubts about the love of their lives… You name it, I was there for them.”
Angie’s positive vibe radiates through her Instagram photos and blog topics. She’s a natural boost on a blue day!

Kimberly Ann Hawes refers to herself as “The Steel City Chick” who combines strength and humor in her lifestyle blog, podcasts, and webinars.

Kimberly’s podcast offers “Tip Tuesdays” and “Single & Satisfied Sundays” in a no-nonsense, girlfriend-style conversation that you’ll find entertaining and thought provoking.
Her motto? “Everything is better over cocktails or coffee.” We couldn’t agree more!
Who: Jodie Filogomo
Where: Colorado, United States
Jodie Filogomo threw out her every-day style rules when she sold her dental practice and became a blogger. Now, Jodie experiments with combinations she wouldn’t normally wear. Her photos with her mother (70+ model) and step mother (60+ model) have attracted over 14,000 followers on Instagram alone.
“When I was working as a dentist, I tended to dress very conservatively, and I was sure there was only 1 ‘right’ way to style clothes. However, once I started blogging and reading others’ blogs, it was such an enlightening thought that we can dress any way we’d like,” Jodies explains. “I know my mom still struggles with the ‘rules’ that she grew up with about style and fashion. However, I rationalize to her that if we have that much trouble changing our thought about clothing that evolves so easily, then how can we expect people to change their thinking on truly ethical or value-based decisions?”
About her personal style: “I think it’s learning to try to match my outsides with my insides. So that means you’d describe me colorful, quirky and a little glamorous!!”
