AHEAD, THE FOUNDER OF LUST LOCAL, DIANA MORALES, SHARES HOW HER PASSION FOR CURATION AND IMAGINATION INTRODUCED A SPARK IN SOCIAL MEDIA ONLY TO IGNITE A FIRE IN HER DAILY HUSTLE...
For as long as I can remember, taking pictures of my food, decor, puppies has been a passion a best friend once called silly. As a student at George Mason I studied both History and Art History, and was a real nerd for a well curated art exhibit. I spent time looking at photos and piecing together study guides with the photos and captions found. I was writing papers with fun titles like “Playing with the Duke of Hearts” about a 18th Century Duke in Umbria, and even, “What was for Supper at the Last Supper” on a study in my final year of college about the food presented at da Vinci’s now infamous take on The Last Supper.
WHEN I GRADUATED COLLEGE DURING THE GREAT RECESSION I DIDN’T THINK MY DESIRE TO CURATE AND MY HISTORY DEGREE WOULD ACTUALLY GET USED... YEARS LATER THAT ZEST FOR CURATION AND IMAGINATION HAS BECOME MY HUSTLE.
Lust Local started very cautiously during my corporate stint of years downtown. Somewhere in my tenure with that job, I was tasked with “learning social media” for the partner I supported at my firm. What he and I didn’t realize then is that they were basically grooming me to learn when to post, what to post, and where to post on all social media sites. For weeks after my initial dip into the social pool of Twitter, Linkedin and Facebook I started playing around with Instagram, specifically hashtags in order to reach a larger audience.
Today Lust Local works as a Social Media Management Company. We work in expanding the reach of brands around the DC Metro area both locally and nationally. We also work on strategy building, editorial calendar planning, and content creation with independent brands through our consulting services. Lust Local works on organically growing followings, and reaching more people with thoughtfully curated images and messages. We also love sharing about local businesses we frequent, discover and enjoy, particularly through the use of our hashtag #lustlocaldc.
