My Favorite Insta’s

A while back I took a week off from Instagram to free up some of my time and really just to see if I could do it.  I talked about how I wanted to be more selective in who I follow and what I post, so today I am sharing my absolute favorite accounts on Instagram! Yay! (Obviously, I follow more than six people… but these are my top favorites)

The White House

I know, I know… you don’t like politics. One thing I love about The White House’s Instagram account is that it is mildly about politics and more about day to day life and activities in The White House itself. I mean… who doesn’t like pictures of our National Leader playing football?

Pacific Northwest Wonderland

Ever since Mr. Yell and I went to Seattle, WA for our Honeymoon, I have been obsessed with the Pacific Northwest. This account shows pictures of nature and some urban pictures, which make it a fun feed to follow. If you love travel, the PNW, or just pretty pictures be sure to give this account your attention.

Elsie Larson

I love colors, crafts, food, and cute things so obviously I follow the blog A Beautiful Mess. Elsie is one of the writers and founders of the site and her feed is so lovely! Always full of color, she shares her blog posts and just pieces of her everyday life making it a fun feed to follow.

Emma Chapman

I LOVE Emma’s feed. LOVE IT. She is Elsie Larson’s sister and works as a co-writer/c0-creator of ABM. Emma’s style is more like my own, with more dark colors and a little edgy, which is why I love her Insta. She also posts pictures about blog happenings and her personal life, but I love how she has a different perspective than Elsie when it comes to her picture-taking.

Rachel Brathen

Rachel was one of the first accounts I followed when I was getting into Instagram and yoga more. Her posts are full of island pictures (she lives in Aruba so…) and of course, YOGA. If you are interested in yoga, travel, or just love beaches, I recommend following this awesome yogi. (Also, she just got a baby goat, which is amazing.)

Pudge the Cat

I’m going to be honest… I follow A LOT of cat Instagram’s (post to follow!). Pudge is one of the first ones I found and is still my favorite, because I mean, look her face! Too cute. If you are in need of some cuteness or giggles in your life follow Pudge for your daily dose of adorable.

Rachel Willyerd

Ya’ll, I love Rachel’s feed. She lives in Alaska and takes the most amazing photos. I don’t know why more people don’t know about her, because her photos are dreamy! If you love mountain photos with great colors, Rachel’s feed is the best for you.

So I guess this is more than just SOME of my favorites, but there is too much diversity on Instagram to just have one favorite, or even two. I love how Instagram is more than just a social media site… it can create and encourage community if you allow it to. You can meet people who struggle/enjoy/travel/live like you do. It’s a whole new dimension to friendship and relationships.

What are some of your favorite Insta accounts?

Much love. Much grace.
