Fifteen Favourite Instagram Accounts
Okay, so it’s no lie that I spend way too much time scrolling through Instagram. It is by far my favourite social media, as I feel you can get really creative with it and it is jam packed with inspiration. Lets just say I am slightly obsessed.
I follow some accounts that are absolutely KILLING it with their Instagram game. So I wanted to dedicate a blog post to those guys (it was also a great excuse for me to spend time on Instagram…not gonna lie), and as it is international women’s week this week I thought I could combine the two and do my 15 fave female Instagram accounts (woah! all that alliteration!)
So I am taking this super seriously and splitting it up into categories.
The first being photography. I am a wannabe photographer myself. I got my first DSLR camera four months ago so I am always swooning over amazing photography accounts.
@georgiarosehardy – Rosie Hardy
I am going to start off with Rosie Hardy who is absolute GOALS in every sense of the word. She is currently doing the 365 days challenge, so she takes a self-portrait everyday for year. She wows me each day with her work, taking amazing photographs, which she edits and manipulates to produce some of the most stunning images. She creates quite surreal/dreamlike images that tell a story, whilst others are more simplistic but equally as beautiful. I could ramble on for ages about how much I love her work. Seriously, if you don’t know her, you need to check her insta.
@alex_cameron – Alexandra Cameron
Another photographer who I am in absolute awe of is Alexandra Cameron. Her work is SO ridiculously and utterly impressive. She too takes portraits with a hint of surrealism. They are just beautiful, and personally find her work so inspiring.
Moving onto the second category of designers/makers. If you read my blog you’ll know that am a design assistant for Always Lovely, so I follow A LOT of amazing designers.
@onrshop – Rachel
Rachel is one of my favourites. Her feed is quite crisp, with pastel pinks and greens. But I like it because it still feels personal and not overly orchestrated, like some accounts can be. I also LOVE her products…particularly her pins. She also has a blog, which I really enjoy reading! Definitely worth checking out >> http://store.ohnorachio.com/
@ohjoy – Joy Cho
Joy Cho is a designer and blogger. Her feed is bursting with colour and just oozes with fun. Dogs are also featured quite frequently so obviously I’m going to love it!
@alwayslovelyuk – Always Lovely
Okay, so I may be a bit biased because I work for Sophie who runs Always lovely! But this is up there with my all time faves and it deserves a mention. It’s full of glitter, weddings, and Henry the office dog. What’s not to love?!
I can’t have this category and no give my account a little mention. If you want to see what I get up to click >> here.
Now lets talk about crafty accounts, I follow loads of people with feeds full of handmade goodness.
@sonraclay – Sonya
Sonya makes THE most adorable ceramics. I am just obsessed with everything she posts. I also take the time to read her captions as well because she always writes something so lovely. Definitely one to follow if you like a good etsy seller!
@ilovecrafty – I Love Crafty Jewellery (Laura)
If you are a fan of quirky and original jewellery, then look right here! Laura designs and makes her own jewellery that I am always swooning over.
So the next category is artists. I am into my art, but after finishing my art a level it is harder to get motivated and inspired to paint / draw / whatever! But I love it so much, so I turn to Instagram to inspire me sometimes.
@eva_magill_oliver – Eva Magill-Oliver
I am in complete love with Eva’s style. Her compositions. Bold patterns. Colour combinations. It all pleases my eyes very much. It is quite different to the kind of art I am usually drawn to, but I think that adds to why I love it so much because it feels quite refreshing for me.
@jennigauthier – Jennifer Gauthier
I don’t know where to start with this one. I just love it. I can’t really explain why, I just think her work is beautiful. I love mixed media art, and Jennifer just has style and finesse to her work even though it’s quite loose and abstract. All the heart eyes over her Instagram!
Okay, leading onto cakes/bakes. I am OBSESSED with these accounts. I get fixated on little time lapse videos of someone piping icing too often. Baking is also a hobby of mine, so I get so many ideas from scrolling through Instagram.
@whippedcakeco – Whipped Cake Co.
Amie’s cakes are sheer perfection. So clean and sophisticated, these cakes are an utter joy to the eye. I LOVE her videos she puts on as well, they are SO satisfying to watch!
@meringuegirls – Meringue Girls
These girls are so talented and have GIRL POWER! I love love love their colourful feed, and their bakes are so cool as well!
Now lets look at wedding accounts. I work in the wedding industry so love a good wedding account, particularly when they are alternative.
@rocknrollbride – Kat Williams
Kat is the absolute go to for alternative wedding ideas! Rock n Roll Bride is full of creativity and wedding inspo. AND she has just set up a YouTube channel with Helen Anderson called The Confetti Girls, which is amazing for anyone who is looking for unique wedding ideas!
I am finishing this post off with GIRL BOSS. It was so hard to narrow this one down…
@veronicadearly – Veronica Dearly
I LOVE this account! I have for ages actually! Her posts never disappoint me, and sometimes they genuinely make me LOL. Now that is the sign of a good Instagram account!
@crownandglory – Crown and Glory
What’s not to love about Crown and Glory?! THE most amazing hair accessories and their feed is full of all things colourful and magical! They are instagoals and total GIRL BOSS.
Now last but no means least…
@nikkimcwilliams – Nikki McWilliams
Everything about this feed is fun and lovable, and Nikki’s products are AMAZING. I am particulary in love with her ‘A cup of tea solves everything’ pin, because that is my life motto. >> https://nikkimcwilliams.com/
On that note, I think I have done enough fan-girling for one day.
What are your favourite Instagram accounts? I also love finding new ones to follow.
Lots of love,
