Let me start by saying how Instagram used to be my favorite social media outlet. Few ads, no "copy and paste this if you hate spiders" kinds of posts, few rants, and simple pretty pictures and a short caption. But then. THEN. Instagram did some update in which your feed is no longer simply those you follow, but the top posts that Instagram "thinks" you will like most even if you've seen it for the 20th time already. Why did you have to ruin such a good thing, Insta? And THEN they added insta-stories? I mean truthfully I don't hate it, but to just blatantly steal someone else's idea like that? Shouldn't that be some kind of copyright infringement? Anyways... despite those things, Instagram is still one of my favorite social media outlets, especially to follow inspirational and artfully created Instagram feeds. You can't follow those people quite the same way that you can on Facebook, there's just too much other nonsense there.
With that, here are some of my favorite Instagram feeds to follow -
Lindsey Bonnice has created a beautiful pastel world in her home in Pennsylvania with her 3 kids, husband, and farm animals! This is such a fun feed to follow as she is always posting the most precious videos of her kiddos. And this may have been where my deep desire to have a farm of miniature animals was birthed. I love how she surrounds herself with what she loves, unapologetically AND she has curly hair. Her blog is pretty swell too.
Ashley Cambell is actually an Oklahoma resident I came across whilst shopping on Joss & Main! Her Instagram feed is filled with her 5 kids, husband, her super cute home, and travels in her family's camper! She teaches an online photography class on her blog and shares some creative DIY projects. If you can't tell, I love to follow her blog also ;)
I really am trying to focus on Instagram, but alas, this is another blog I love! However, besides sharing their recent posts, they also share beautiful captured photographs from their followers. It's such a colorful feed, and man do I love color!
This girl has THE most unique feed I've ever come across! It's a little darker than the others I've mentioned, but that may be one of the reasons I enjoy it so much! It's so different in the best of ways! This girl is just an all around artist from photography, painting, sewing and even her baked goods are truly a work of art. I wish I could be around her just to soak in some of that creative goodness! I enjoy people that really push the boundaries and put EVERYTHING into their work even if it may seem odd. To me, that is so inspiring.
Instagram, I still don't understand why you changed up such a good thing, but I still thoroughly enjoy you and how you provide an outlet for these creative minds. Maybe one day you guys will be all, "Oh you should follow Molly, she has such a cool and creative Instagram feed" ...maybe.
