Favourite Instagram Accounts
Today I thought I'd talk a little about one of my great love affairs - Instagram. I just cannot get enough and check it about a million times a day. I hardly use Facebook and couldn't give two hoots about Vine, LinkedIn, or any other social media networks: Instagram is where it's at!
I'm quite picky about who I choose to follow - I want my feed to be a mix of beautiful, inspiring, cute, funny and personal photos. I've got a pretty great balance at the moment, so I thought I'd share with you some of my very favourite accounts to follow.
Lucky Dip Club (@luckydipclub)
My adoration of Leona and Lucky Dip Club is well documented and, her Instagram feed is every bit as delightful as the boxes of goodies she assembles every month. Peek behind the scenes of her ever-growing business and swoon over vintage inspired pieces, amazing décor and supercute jewellery.
Pretty self explanatory really - incredible images of space, stars, galaxies, nebulas and more. Their pictures make my mind boggle and I often stare at them in awe.
This comedy account has me smiling and chuckling to myself. Follow the adventures and day-to-day life of Skellie - a 'basic white bitch' who just happens to be a skeleton. With laugh-out-loud commentary, her pictures are always comic relief in my feed.
Goats of Anarchy (@goatsofanarchy)
It's my favourite TV show - Sons of Anarchy - but with goats! These adorable pygmy goats are named after characters from the show and are utterly adorable. Need I say more?!
Harriet Gray (@_helloharriet)
Harriet is one of my favourite artists, combining two of my very favourite things - cute illustrations and cats! Basically everything in her etsy shop is on my wishlist. So, so perfect!
Quyen Dinh (@parlor_tattoo_prints)
Another favourite artist of mine. Quyen paints fantastic tattoo-style pieces with a very distinctive style, which are always spot on. My merman tattoo is inspired by her work and I can't wait to have some of her beautiful prints hanging in my home. Oh, she's also a total badass.
The Great Catsby (@catsby_the_bookshop_cat)
I had to have a kitty account in here somewhere! Catsby is a gorgeous ginger boy, who lives in a secondhand bookshop. Clearly he's the boss, and narrates his daily work life, along with sweet pictures of himself.
Amy Victoria Savage (@amyvsavage)
Amy is an awesome tattooist, who is on my wishlist of artists to get work from. She does a lot of animal tattoos, combining just the right amount of girliness and whimsy, which are just wonderful.
The Ballerina Project (@ballerinaproject_)
Keeping my ballerina dreams alive, is this account. The project takes ballet out of the studio/off the stage and into unusual, unexpected environments. Expect to see beautiful photos and videos of ballerinas in subways, on beaches, bridges, to name but a few.
North West USA is right up there on my wanderlust list of places to visit, and Stasha's pictures of her life with two gorgeous Newfoundland dogs (Max and Bruce), makes me even more desperate to go. Her photos have a very personal and genuine feel to them, and always bring a smile, too.
I hope you enjoy them! What are your favourite Instagram accounts? Any I should check out? Let me know in the comments!
