You Are Way Cooler Than Your Instagram Feed | Inspiration: Favorite Instagram Accounts

Instagram is a social media app that almost everyone uses (even my grandma has an Instagram account). 📱 I’ve had an account since the very beginning because I enjoy sharing the photos I take and things I do. Over the years I’ve definitely discovered a couple of Instagrammers I love to follow. This post features my five favorite & inspirational ones at the moment.


Emma is a photographer and she has the most stunning Instagram feed. I have this ‘theme’ going on in my feed where I put a border around my photos. Emma is the one who inspired me to continue that, since she does that as well and her feed looks very well put together. This makes all of her photos really stand out, because they are all colorful and bright.


I found Poppy’s blog and Instagram through Zoella videos. I think it was about two years ago when she started her blog and I started following her on Instagram as well. 📸 The concepts of her blog and Instagram photos are always so lovely. All of them have a relaxed feel and not ‘fake’, like a lot of accounts have at the moment. Two things you’ll see on her Instagram and I adore: she wears a lot of stripy sweaters and has a lovely decorated home.


Ever since I learnt how to work with Photoshop, I love playing around with it. When I found Milou on Instagram, I just fell in love with her creativity. Not only her photos are great, but she also adds these awesome designs to her photos. Her feed is an actual sketchbook, right? To me, it’s very inspirational.


Just like Milou, another very creative Instagrammer right here. Silvana is an illustrator and she makes these beautiful digital portraits✏️  The thing I love about her Instagram is the vintage vibe all of her photos have. She also visits tons of hotspots and I love to discover new ones through Silvana. I think it’s really cool she just sits down there and starts drawing/doodling.


You might know Kae from her very successful jewelry webshop, 4everwitheveryone, or from her own social media company, A Sociaal Media. If you don’t know her webshop, you have been living under a rock. Kae really inspires me with everything that she does. But besides that, she has a very pretty Instagram feed. Her photos are bright and feature a lot of traveling, work, cute outfits and food.

Since I follow tons of different accounts on Instagram, these are just a couple of the ones I love. Maybe I will do another one of these again or share my favorites in my Instagramstories. Let me know if you would like to see this. All of these Instagrammers inspire me a lot when it comes to my photography and experimenting with editing. What are your favorite Instagram accounts? Do you like photography and editing as well?

    This is such a lovely read dear, and I couldn’t agree more. Indeed, there’s more to life outside social media, and not everything we see in IG and Fb are true. But despite that, there are actually people online that is worth to follow and admire. Thanks for sharing dear!

    Ik ben te enthousiast over foto’s om een echt samenhangende feed te maken, maar vind het wel erg mooi
