Four to Follow: Leigh Sellers’ Picksby The Biscuit Staff on February 6, 2020
Leigh Sellers founded Touchstone Family Law because she is passionate about assisting people through family conflict in a manner that leaves them intact as a person. When she’s not focused on the law, family or friends, she indulges her love of creativity — immersing herself in books, movies and live theater.
She says, “If I had any acting or musical talent at all, I would have moved to NYC and tried my hand in the theater, but I have enough sense to be in the audience and invest my professional life in my true talent of advocacy.”
Bringing people together and solving problems is an important — and powerful — talent. And, Leigh excels at it. She is a keen observer of human behavior and of authenticity. She’s also a champion of Charlotte creativity. That makes Leigh EXACTLY the kind of person we turn to when trying to navigate the waters of the best Instagram accounts in the city.
We asked Leigh for four Queen City accounts she loves to follow. And, we think you should follow them, too.
Here are Leigh’s Picks:
“If you love Charlotte and creativity, you have to follow Hope Nicholls’s boutique page and visit often. Hope never forgets a customer and treats me and my family like we are friends anytime we shop at Boris & Natasha. Hope is, at a minimum, a musician, a jewelry designer, a business owner and a Plaza Midwood champion. I love keeping up with her stock and her beautiful dogs. Just going into the shop makes me feel like I have some sense of style … even though I just wear black all of the time. The fact that I can shop via direct message also makes me happy. She rocks. (Really. Listen to her interview with Joni Deutsch on the WFAE Amplifier podcast.)” – Leigh Sellers
“I love how Pressly Williams returned home to her family’s business and helped enhance the amazing Renfrow Hardware in Matthews with her fresh ideas. Her work on the farm, amazing flower arrangements and beautiful posts are a wonderful departure from food shots and the next hot spot in town. She makes me wish I could keep a plant alive for more than a week. Extra credit that she got her Dad to do SkillPop classes.” – Leigh Sellers
“This is nonprofit done well. This local group keeps children in Tanzania present in school by providing food if they attend. The Lunch Project integrates parents by having them cook and serve the food. It engages the community in Tanzania by locally sourcing the food. Then, it uses the entire project to teach empathy and empower children in the US to understand that they can affect change in the world. I love keeping up with their work and growth. Yes, I am a huge fan.” – Leigh Sellers
“Shanna Small talks all limbs of yoga and pushes for diversity in yoga. Her posts are both inspirational and a good kick in the rear. So are her classes. Whether you want to dig deeper than a mantra or an asana — or are new to yoga — you will be inspired to try.” – Leigh Sellers
