Initially I thought I would share my Top 5 accounts with you all, but when I tried to narrow it down to just 5 I failed… Miserably.
My Instagram feed is a lot like my taste in music… Very eclectic… Or crazily varied if you prefer.
I have so many different interests and Instagram is just amazing for showcasing the very best examples of people with similar interests to mine.
As well as that, it is primarily about photographs and with me being a photographer it obviously pushes this particular “social media platform” into the Number 1 position!
So without further ado… here are my favourite accounts to follow, from least fave to absolute fave, and the wonderful things you can expect from them.
Facts – Facts By Guff
This is a wonderfully weird page filled to the brim with the most interesting Facts. That’s all. But if your a strange one like me, who enjoys the most random information, some conversation starters or just an excuse to one up the people around you with your obscure knowledge, then this page is a winner!!!
An example of the kind of information you can expect:
“Google was originally called Backrub”!
StaceyMarieMUA – Stacey McDonald
Stacey is a Doncaster based Makeup Artist whos work is just incredible. Her artistry has attracted almost 100k followers and quite rightly so. She regularly posts videos showing her work in process and has an array of colourful photos on her page to admire. If you love makeup, this is definitely one to follow!
CorbyCraigNewBuild – Craig Johnson
Craigs page is jam-packed full of beautiful images of his newly bought & decorated home. His style is classic and clean, and if you’re a lover of home decor then you will really enjoy what he has to offer. I often flick through his images when I’m feeling stressed and it just calms me… It really does. Also, his InstaStories are pretty funny too.
WonderfulU – Megan Gilbride
I first discovered Megans page through another Instagram account. She often models for a photographer I follow and there was just something about her style and presence that lured me in. Her fashion sense is so wide and varied that she goes from Boho Chic, to High Fashion, to Simple Elegance all in one flawless stride. If I were at all capable of holding down any style at all, it would be hers!
Actual Insta Homes
This page is every home interiors lovers dream. It is a collection of the best of actual instagrammers homes. It is unbelievable and wonderful all at once. It both inspires me, and makes me feel bad about my totally un-insta-ready home! But well worth a follow.
MilkBubbleTea – Becky Hendry
So the only way I can describe this page is Cosy Cosy Cosy!
Becky lives in what can only be described as a white & pastel wonderland. Her home is filled with fluffy blankets, Disney inspired EVERYTHING, cakes & flowers galore. It is where I’d image Alice In Wonderland would live Happily Ever After, which is funny because Becky is not unlike Alice. If you’re looking for cozy vibes… get following.
The Motherload HQ
The tagline for this page is as follows:
“Celebrating the carnage of Motherhood” – this is absolutely the best way to describe this wonderful page. It’s not your typical polished Instagram page, instead it’s full of real life mummy moments and off the cuff humour. Its sole purpose I believe is to make us mummies feel less guilty about our sometimes less than adequate parenting. As well as bringing us mummies all together to celebrate those moments of victory (i.e getting the kids to bed unscathed, or getting them to eat all of their dinner). I love this page… It seems to pop up on my feed just when I really need it.
Mother Of Daughters – Clemmie Hooper
Clemmie is my idol. I honestly don’t know how she does everything she does. She’s a midwife, an InstaMum, an author and a mother to 4 daughters (2 of whom are toddling twins)!!! She is my hero. Shes beautiful and funny and straight speaking. I love her InstaStories so much because shes just so normal. I can relate to her, as can most other women and mothers. She is truly brilliant.
The Mother Hen – Kathryn Hendry
Ok so I’m not entirely sure where I first discovered this wonderful lady. But I’m so glad i did. She is from Belfast and has the best InstaStories. Shes a mum to 3 gorgeous boys, Adam, Finley & Hugo, as well as being married to the ever-so-lovely Daniel. She’s just so open and honest about parenting. She lets you into her life and shares in all the good and not-so-good aspects of motherhood. From celebrating Finley going to sleep at a reasonable hour to wondering how shes going to cook dinner whilst holding Hugo at the same time. She is just great. In fact, I feel like I know her, so much so that I’ve actually had dreams recently where Kathryn and her family have featured. Lol. A bit stalkery??? Maybe… but you should definitely give her a follow. Even if it’s just to hear her amazing Northern Irish accent.
Stacey Leigh From The Soul – Stacey Leigh
Where do I begin with this amazing lady?!?! Stacey has been my saving Grace these last few months. She is a former Social Worker and mummy to Reika and Jacob. Jacob has Autism and she has shared in all aspects of his condition and diagnosis process. She has been invaluable for me and my hubby as our boy has recently been diagnosed with Autism too. She is just such a wonderful and caring person. She reaches out to her followers and makes an effort to connect with them one on one. I am sooo sad that she lives so far from me, because if we were closer I would make a point of connecting with her face-to-face. She is so positive and spiritual, and sees things in such a different way to other people. It’s uplifting to listen to her speak. Even if you don’t have any connecting to Autism, follow her anyway. She will give you a new way to look at your life. You will not be sorry I sent you.
So there you go lovelies. A very small selection of the best my Instagram Feed has to offer. These really are great pages so get yourselves along to them and have a look for yourself… And feel free to let me know if there are any pages you follow that you love and want to share with me.
