When I first got my iPhone over a year ago and first downloaded Instagram I had no idea how obsessed I would become with it. It was an instantaneously accessible source of inspiration and pick-me-ups for when I was feeling like a bit of a glum bum. I have been meaning to do an Instagram favourites for so long but for the past year I continuously discovered new and lovely pages that it was a little challenging to pin-point a selection of favourites. I now follow over 500 people and so sometimes it can be difficult to see people's updates but there are a few that I find myself going back to on a regular basis. So, in no particular order....
First up is Emma, whose Instagram I think I found from her liking a couple of my pictures. I absolutely love her minimalistic style, healthy food suggestions and of course her handsome little man Oscar who could melt anyone's heart. I was also featured on Mothrs, a website with a community of mothers supporting each other (read more about it here).
This account is a new found love. Over the last 6 months, Christine and I have gradually developed an obsession with dachshunds, or sausy dogs as we like to call them. One day when I was going through "#sausagedogs" I found Amanda's page and instantly fell in love her colourful posts and her little four-legged friend, Leif. Come on, how cute is this photo? Or this?! I just cannot handle this cuteness overload. The 28-year-old from Toronto has been a vegetarian for the past 10 years or so and has recently switched to a vegan diet. For recipes, health tips, home decor, fashion and DIY, check out her blog here.
I first met Caley back in my second last year of high school when she first moved to Luxembourg from Canada. It is crazy to think how long ago that was! Even though it makes me a little sad that we do not see each other as much as we could and should do, I am endlessly jealous of her city trips and globe trotting escapes. With photos documenting a lot of her trips, her Instagram page is hands down one of my favourites to go back to to cheer me up on a rainy day!
this Pep Talk video uploaded by SoulPancake on YouTube in January of last year? I remember when I first saw it, I cried. I was going through a little bit of a dull few months with blogging, exams and life in general and watching this video made such a huge difference on the outlook I had on life. Robby (kidpresident) has such an incredibly infectious laugh (as you can hear here) and I cannot get enough of the goofy updates.
And that's it for now! Perhaps in a few months time I will have another batch of favourites but I am a creature of habit and so I find it quite difficult to regularly do favourites themed posts. I would love to know your favourite Instagram pages and please do leave the links below!
