I love getting inspiration from other bloggers and fellow instagrammers…”social media influencers” is what they are calling them now a days. I am pretty picky about who I choose to follow on instagram and what blogs I choose to read. Mainly because I try not to spend too much of my life looking at other people’s lives. As much as I love social media and the blogging world, I find often find myself looking at the lives of others more than living my own life at times. That being said, I choose to follow blogs and instagrammers that I truly feel like I gain encouragement and inspiration from.
Here are some of my favorites split up into categories:
I follow food accounts for the recipes+pretty pictures.
Half Baked Harvest– Tieghan of Half Baked Harvest creates the most incredible pictures with her food. I could look at her account all day. She is truly gifted in the art of making food look pretty.
Naptime Kitchen– You guys may remember Kate from a guest post she did awhile back! Kate’s recipes are all super easy and usually sure to please your whole family. Her account is also very uplifting and I look forward to reading all her posts! And she does all her shopping at Trader Joe’s which you all know by know is my favorite grocery store 🙂
I follow these accounts if they inspire me creatively in my style, home, decorating, and DIY projects!
A Beautiful Mess– This blog is run by two sisters Elsie and Emma! I have followed them for a long time. They never cease to amaze me with all of their creativity of style and DIY projects! And their account is just plain fun to look at it.
DIY Playbook– I just recently started following these two friends that share about all things DIY, travel, fashion, home decor etc. I guess they could be considered lifestyle too, but the basis of their blog is DIY. They have a super cute style and of course I love following them because they are besties that co-blog just like me and Allison 🙂
Young House Love– This is a husband and wife duo who are constantly doing some sort of DIY project in their home! There style and projects are super fun but also doable. They give great tips and their podcast is awesome!
These accounts are a little bit of everything!
Lovely Blonde Closet– Amaris’ account is filled with her adorable fashion sense, amazing shabby chic home, and two cute children.
The Shine Project– Ashley not only posts beautiful pictures, she has amazing content in her posts that really strike a cord with me. She is an inspirational person and her account is always uplifting to me!
Jones Design Company– Emily is truly gifted with al things creative. She has her own shop where she sells different home decor items and shares really practical tips for home, style, book reviews, travel recommendations and almost anything you could think of!
I follow these bloggers not necessarily because their style is mine or I want my fashion sense to be like theirs but because their style inspires me!
Sequins and Seams– Bailey has such a cute style and infectious personality! I have loved getting to know her on social media.
Putting Me Together– This girl has the best blog name!! Her style is usually not mine, but I like seeing what she puts together and she always shares great basic wardrobe items that are affordable.
I follow these accounts on instagram because their photos are incredible!!! Truly beautiful. Take a few minutes to go through their feeds even if you don’t follow.
From Where I Drone– All pictures that have been taken from a drone’s view! Truly breathtaking scenes and snapshots.
A Color Story– Easily the most beautiful instagram account I follow. And their app is amazing for editing photos! I use it daily.
Like I said, I am very picky about who I follow! I choose to unfollow any account that makes me feel like my life is less than or not good enough. All of these blogs/instagram accounts make me feel inspired and uplifted! I would love to hear in the comments some your faves to follow.
