Oh. My God. Becky. Just how much can you talk about Instagram? A little bit more as it happens… but instead of sharing my sneaky (disclaimer: not sneaky at all) secrets to Instagram growth, today I am sharing my Instagram inspirations.
You might think that taking such great inspiration from my peers (peers in the sense of we’re all bloggers… I can only wish these beautiful people were my friends) is dangerous. With a multitude of issues when it comes to intellectual property and a rise of copycats, taking influence from someone when you’re creating a composition or building your feed up can feel a little close to the line of respecting what’s okay and what’s not.
Sticking within the realms of what is okay, many of these Instagrammers are influencers themselves, and who’s to say that they’re making a living off of the product in that Instagram snap and not the artistic (and probably very pretty) way they’ve captured it.
Anyway, without getting into the deep stuff, I’m here to share with you the current Instagrammers that are killing it right now. Dive in (and give these wonderful people a follow).
Hannah freaking Gale. I could quite literally write an entire essay about how I discovered Hannah’s Instagram (and blog and Twitter and YouTube) far too late… I love her personality-packed outfit shots that have a sense of style that looks so effortless. This along with her pockets of exciting travel escapades, two adorable cats and a great eye for a good avo on toast makes this feed all round perfect.
Jess is a lifestyle blogger with a flair for #fromwhereistand shots, a sweet tooth and a lovely photographic style. If her feed doesn’t make you want to get your boots on and head to a cosy coffee shop for a cuppa and a slice of cake (whilst scrolling through your Bloglovin’ feed), then nothing will.
Despite my self-professed love for interiors, I do love a good shop of some leaves every now and then. Annie provides some stunning shots of nature as well as great London scenes and many a doorway that I’m praying my 30-year-old self can afford.
Sophie Kate runs a beautiful account (and blog) that’s completely embracing the autumn/winter vibe that’s in the air right now – i.e the weather is cold but this feed is cosy AF. Check it out for tasty brunch shots, stylish-come-comfortable OOTDs and the perfect amount of beautiful Cambridge.
Milli Grace’s blog is one of the first I fell in love with when I came back to blogging, and her Instagram feed is seriously next level. As a style and travel blogger, you never have to scroll far to find snaps of gorgeous scenery or quaint details of city life. I’ll also mention that this feed is among my favourites for having the perfect balance of selfies, outfit photos, scenic shots and food (yes, food is an important factor… I mean, always).
If you’re not familiar with the ohnorachio shop already, then you’re sorely missing out. It’s one of the cutest set-ups on the web, complemented by Rachel’s main Instagram feed – a wonderful mix of pins, plants and pretty cats. P.S Any family members reading this, I’m after some of Rachel’s porcelain planters for Christmas.
When most people think of Instagram and blogging, their heads probably go straight to the flat lays. I’ll tell you right now, no-one is doing these flat lays better than Sophie – they’re to die for. With her passion for Lush and pretty workspaces sprinkled in too, I’m becoming more obsessed with every new stunning post.
Siffat is the happy owner of maybe the most enviable Instagram feed ever (I mean, just go check it out). With ultimate cool-girl style expect plenty of monochromatic chic, sexy flat lays and basically the life you wished you lived. Siffat’s eye for interior decor and style also flagged this feed as one of my go-to’s, it’s almost as if I need more encouragement to buy pretty pieces and spend hours styling the blankets on my sofa…
Liv’s feed is guaranteed to make your belly rumble, whilst simultaneously making you want to book a trip to the salon because damn, that hair colour is redhead goals. This feed is so down to earth and relatable which makes me feel like I’m simply checking out my friend’s new picture, rather than the reality of holding myself back from liking all the photos in a two-minute period.
I’d love to check out your Instagram feed, leave your handle below and I’ll schedule in a nice old whack of sitting-in-the-bath-with-a-big-cup-of-tea-scrolling-through-Instagram-endlessly time.
Also please share a couple of your favourite Instagrammers in the comments below – i.e please feed my Instagram addiction… please.
