Instagram Crush

This weekend was a relaxing one – spent mostly on the sofa with the computer on my lap – browsing the world wide web. I came across an Instagram account: Micha Gianneli. She is so stunning and you can tell that she is really into posting well produced photos. She is one of the biggest influencers in Australia and her Instagram account is visually gorgeous, you can see she puts a lot of thought into the overall look. I will let the pictures speak for themselves 🙂 Remember to follow us on Instagram: reykjavikfashion Happy chappy Monday 🙂

To get the whole story though, I talked to Gylfi himself. “My secret obsession has always been with cars.” Gylfi tells me. He was born in Seyðisfjörður in East Iceland where the Norröna ferry stops, which connects Iceland and mainland Europe. “While in Seyðisfjörður, I worked pumping gas at a gas station, and around ferry days there would be a lot of very interesting “overland” vehicles, campers and 4x4s and other unusual or interesting vehicles.” This inspired him. “I promised myself that when I would be older I would own a camper van of some sorts. To me it was more important than owning a house!” Gylfi started a personal Instagram account around 3 or 4 years ago but kept finding himself posting car pictures. He then noticed that these images usually got more attention than anything else he posted. Subsequently, he started the Iceland Car Culture account. “Today I work as a driver/guide in Iceland so I drive a lot around…
