You know what I love about the blogging community? The support. The tidal wave of enthusiasm, advice and encouragement from all of the other wonderful women out there writing about life in their own special ways. Sure, we have our competitive moments… “Does EVERY blogger have an unlimited Nordstrom budget except me?!” or “Guess I better choose white marble for my next countertops” and maybe a little “How on earth does she get her toddler to sit still for every photograph?” – But deep down inside, we’re all rooting for each other. And that’s a pretty wonderful thing to be a part of : )
I’d like to start an “every once in awhile thing” (refusing to call it a series or a weekly event because I can’t seem to stick to those types of blog promises, cough cough #mondayfunday cough) where I highlight some of the people and brands who inspire me digitally. This could be a space where I talk about other bloggers, or simply people who I think are doing a damn good job – and I want you to know about them. Without further ado, let’s kick this off with a few of my current favorite Instagram accounts! Double taps for days, my friends.
First up: @hungrygrls. Pro Tip: Always start with food. Everyone loves food. And how can you not love artistically and whimsically photographed DELICIOUS-LOOKING-HOLY-HEAVEN-SENT piles of spaghetti, stacks of donuts and bagels aplenty? Exactly. I went to college with one of the girls who created this account and I remember thinking “This is going to be huge. Why didn’t I think of that!?” Jump on the bandwagon guys, it’s full of cupcakes and witty captions.
Kelle Hampton of Enjoying the Small Things is one of my biggest inspirations – as a writer, blogger, mother, interior decorator, photographer and overall human being. She is #goals. Her Instagram account (@etst) is #megagoals, which is something I just made up. If you like lots of color, cute kids and beautiful light – Kelle’s your girl. (No back off, she’s mine)
I’m sure most of you read Christina Lea Loves (formerly The New Mrs.) and are therefore aware of Christina’s fantastic instapage, but if not – you’re in luck. @ChristinaSotherden is filled with her adorable family, drool-worthy treats, lots of wine, and DOGS. Puppies always win. #fact
I’ve been following Taralynn for awhile now, since her chronicles as the “green dress girl,” but her blogging (and photo taking) just keeps getting better and better every day. Hers is one of the most colorful accounts I follow, and one of the most diverse as well. Fashion, coffee, travel, crafts and fitness – you’ll find it all at @taralynnmcnitt.
Happy Friday loves – and if you’re heading to church this weekend, throw me a bone with a quick prayer that my lungs/legs don’t give out during the 10 mile Broad Street race on Sunday… Ahhh!
