There are many (MANY) social media platforms out there in the big, wide, digital world but there’s one that holds my heart – and attention – like no other…
By now I’m sure you’ve all realised that I’m a really visual person and that photography is a passion (if you haven’t…surprise!).
It’s no wonder, then, that I can very happily spend hours trolling Instagram taking in the visual feast. From hotels to magazines to celebrities (of the blogging and big screen variety) there’s always something to catch my eye on capture my ‘like’.
I thought it might be fun to share some of my favourite truly Insta-stalkable peeps at the moment so read on for Insta-fun!
1. The Londoner, Blogger: @rosielondoner
2. Gal Meets Glam, Blogger: @juliahengel
The first two are my favourite bloggers for all things travel, fashion and fun. London-based Rose and (newly) Charleston-based Julia are actually friends in real life and have gone on some pretty incredible vacations (which they pasted all over Instagram. Bless them!) I love the way they’ve both curated their Instagram accounts – the colours, what they choose to include and the overall composition is incredibly pleasing…though does lead to some fairly serious wanderlust!
You get three for one on this one! But seriously, I’ll assume it’s no surprise to you all that I like to keep up-to-date on everything happening with my favourite royal family. The pictures from Kensington Palace of the recent #RoyalVisitCanada were especially fantastic!
4. Biscuit, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel: @busybodybiscuit
If there’s one thing in the world I want more than anything, it’s a dog. A Cavalier King Charles Spaniel to be precise. Sadly, my job and landlord get in the way of this happening at the moment so for now I content myself with following the escapades of the cheeky, charming Biscuit.
5. Hot Dudes Reading, Fans Account: @hotdudesreading
Beyond the obvious (hot dudes! reading!) the captions on these posts are hilarious and I’ve actually added a few of the featured books to my To Be Read pile!
6. Condé Nast Traveler, Travel Guide: @cntraveler
The images are gorgeous and I love that they feature off the beaten track places. I’m constantly expanding my travel bucket list with every new pic they post.
7. Porter Magazine, Style Guide: @portermagazine
I love Porter’s mix of style and substance and though I regularly read the magazine I love to see what they’re recommending or talking about day-to-day. (They also have a habit of featuring bold, incredibly inspiring women on the cover and in their IG feed which I adore.)
8. Hillary Clinton, Future American President: @hillaryclinton
#ImWithHer #InItToWinIt #GoForTheGold #Respect
9. Epic Reads, YA Community: @epicreads
A fun, visual way to keep up with what’s new in the world of Young Adult fiction and to appreciate the amazing covers and design the genre is seeing these days.
10. Elie Saab, Fashion House: @eliesaabworld
I looooooooove Elie Saab. All of it. The glitz, the glamour – if I could wear anything in the world it would be one of their incredible dresses. Their Instagram feed is a feast for the eyes. A feast!
11. Emma Watson, Women’s Rights Campaigner and Actress: @emmawatson
Emma Watson is the definition of perfection and one of my personal role models. Everything she’s done with the #HeForShe campaign is completely inspirational and I love that she’s used the platform she’s been given to help others and make positive change and impact on the world around her.
12. Mario Testino, Photographer: @mariotestino
World-famous Mario Testino has taken some of the most iconic images in recent history and is a friend to royal, supermodel and tech-world billionaires alike. His images are fantastic and his Instagram feed is an eclectic mix of fashion editorials right down to candid snapshots (I love this recent one of Renee Zellweger on the way to the Bridget Jones premiere in Madrid.)
13. Blaire Eadie Bee, Fashion Blogger: @blaireadiebee
BEE is a woman who has built a cult following by barely saying a word. Her style blog attracts millions of visitors all desperate to see just what she’ll wear next and her Instagram feed is a beautifully crafted ‘best of the best’ round-up of her blog. If I could trade wardrobes with anyone in the world it would be her!
14. Into the Gloss, ‘Beauty…from the inside’: @intothegloss
Into the Gloss is my go-to source for all things make-up, beauty, hair and wellness. Their Instagram feed is a constant inspiration (though my wallet feels differently) and a fab place to find tips, tricks and ideas worth taking a risk on.
15. Chris in Cornwall, Photographer: @chrisincornwall
I actually stumbled across Chris’s feed quite by accident but it was a lucky mistake. His haunting images (primarily of Cornwall though he does roam) are absolutely beautiful and his unique viewpoint of the world around him makes it come alive in unexpected ways. A visual treat not to be missed!
