About a year ago, I wrote a post called: My Favourite Instagram Accounts, and I’ve been wanting to update it for a while now.
I follow just over 700 accounts and, despite the new algorithm making it hard to keep up with everyone (BRING BACK THE CHRONOLOGICAL TIMELINE PLEASE), I do actually love everyone that I follow.
But there are some accounts that just have that little extra something.
They’re the kind of feeds that make me catch my breath and scroll, scroll, scroll until suddenly I realise I’ve lost an hour of my life. The ones that make me want to switch up my life (and my editing!) so it looks more like theirs.
So I’ve got seven B-E-A-YOOO-TIFUL accounts to share with you today.
(And if you want to check out my first five favourites, you can read my post from last year!)
I heart Sarah’s photos. Her lifestyle is basically my dream! She lives in York (my favourite city everrrr) and has a cosy bed by a window with candles and there are cute coffee shops and pretty cobbled streets and classic books… it’s glorious.
Milli is one of my actual real life blogger friends in London and I love her Instagram to pieces. She posts beautiful photos of London, her travels (hello Japan!) and her adorable Westie puppy Sylvie. Lots of white and pinks and grey… it’s calming and it’s delightful.
I adore Rebecca’s photography. She’s one of the first style bloggers I ever followed and two and a bit years later I’m still hooked. I usually get a bit bored of fashion posts, it’s so easy for them to start looking a bit samey, but Rebecca is something else. Gorgeous scenery, vibrant colours, AMAZING outfits, and the best bit? She takes most of her own outfit photos with a tripod and a timer. For real. Definitely one of my favourites!
My babe! My pal! My lovely friend Charlie went travelling for a few months this past Spring and she’s still working her way through all her gorgeous photos now. Whether you’re into stunning architecture, yummy food, gorgeous sunsets or just funny, quirky stories of her time abroad – this is the account for you. Just don’t blame me when you realise you’ve somehow booked yourself a flight to somewhere pretty!
Jo is a contributing writer for Vogue, and her feed is amazing. Simple shots of London life, STUNNING food flatlays (I have so much to learn!) and beautifully written captions that draw you into her life. This is one of my newest favourites, I only discovered it a few weeks ago, but I’m already completely smitten.
Jasmin was (is) my first ever blog friend. We quickly realised we lived about 10 minutes apart and have been bossing the local pub quiz together ever since. Her feed is a BEAUTIFUL mix of London, travel, food and fashion, with lots of greens and blues bringing it all together and giving it a calm and serene feel. I’m a big fan of her new, darker theme, and so excited to see her account grow!
I first discovered Jannik’s feed about two weeks after he’d started it. He had some absolutely MAGICAL photos on there but only a few hundred followers, and I just couldn’t understand why. Fast forward a year or so and he now has well over 200k followers and deserves every single bloody one of them. Guys, he is sixteen. SIX. TEEN. If this isn’t talent, I don’t know what is.
And that’s it for another year!
It’s really interesting to see how my tastes have changed since 2015 actually. I seem to be leaning more towards darker photos, with more landscape and travel thrown in. I’m also really enjoying casual lifestyle shots, photos that don’t look preplanned or set up.
That aesthetic is rolling over to my own feed as well, and I’m kinda loving it!
I’m always on the search for new ‘grammers to follow, so tell me: what are your favourite Instagram accounts? :)
