Within the realm of social media, Instagram is easily my favorite platform. I legitimately consider myself to be bad at Twitter and average at Facebook. Instagram however, I’m excited about and really want to get better at (that sounds bad. I want to get better at all three, but it’s what I’m most enthusiastic about investing time into). There’s just something so fun and uniquely creative in capturing a moment of your life and trying to present it in a way that reflects your taste and personality.
You may remember this post from last year, where I discussed some of my favorite Insta accounts. Well, I’ve since discovered a couple more (and Victoria’s, which I can’t believe I didn’t include last time). The B Bar asked who our three favorite instagrammers are and so, here ya go. I have a lot of favorites, but these are up there right now. And yeah… a dog made the list. But she’s the cutest, I promise! And if you want to know two of the feeds that inspire me the most, it’s Victoria’s and Ali’s :)
Victoria McGinley (@victoriamstudio_): I’ve been following Victoria’s feed for awhile and to me, it fully embodies the word “inspiration.” It’s like an inspiration board on Instagram. From pics of her little pup Lucy to the simplest flowers photographed in a unique light, I just get motivated to do better when I see these pictures. To go decorate, cook something yummy, and pay closer attention to my surroundings. Also, as odd as this may sound, Victoria’s feed totally matches her personality. I met her this past summer (and left feeling incredibly motivated/encouraged) and her Instagram just fits with her bubbly, artistically-inclined personality. Also, her photo editing/filtering skills are TOP.NOTCH.
Alison Vinciguerra (@ali_vinciguerra): Four words: classic, New England, happy, and inspiring. Ali’s Instagram makes me want to move to Rhode Island like, now. I went once and fell in love with the state. She and her husband just built their own house and have a serious knack for decorating, which is one of my favorite subjects on Insta. Another thing to be admired? The amount of natural light in her photos. So.jealous. I’m not normally a fan of lots of baby pics on social media, but actually don’t mind them on Ali’s feed because her adorable son has so much personality and is really just the cutest nug…who also dresses well at the ripe age of like two months old. Oh, and Ali went to Georgetown so there’s a smattering of DC throughout :)
Noodle Larkin (@noodleinthecity): I debated whether or not to deviate from the… humans, for lack of a better word… but Noodle made me do it. I mean honestly, this is one of my favorite Instagram accounts because of how this little pup makes me (and all my friends I’ve told her about) smile on a daily basis. Doesn’t she have the best life? I wasn’t particularly a dachshund fan until I came across Noodle… Kelly, if you ever find yourself in DC and need a babysitter, let me know!
Be sure to check out the other ladies who are sharing their three favorites! It’s time to find some new accounts to follow :) Here’s mine! What are some of your picks? Feel free to comment!
