I'm Not Obsessed.
Earlier this summer I sat in on Hilary Rushford's Instagram with Intention course. Since that day, nearly eight weeks ago, one could say that I've become a little..... "focused"on my Instagram feed. Ok, let's face it. I'm borderline obsessed.
Prior to this time, social media had become a chore. I was doing it simply because I felt I had to. I had lost my passion for what can be a highly creative outlet. The past two months I have fallen back in love with the platform. Not only for the ability to post and interact, but also for inspiration and joy. I wanted to share my top six favorite accounts with you, in hopes that you find inspiration in them as well. Enjoy!
I love this account for two reasons:
It’s GORGEOUS! It’s no secret that aqua is one of my power colors. I’m even wearing it as I type this. And EVERY photo in their feed features aqua.
The mission for this organization is phenomenal. They are dedicated to opening up conversations on eating disorders and body image. Their recently launched #IAmPerfectMovement is raising money to create the largest platform in the world to empower both women and men suffering from eating disorders and body image issues.
I’m going to try to restrain my crazy cat lady-ness for this one…. but no promises. This cat stole my heart the second I saw her. She is the epitome of thriving despite your circumstances. No front legs? No problem - her life is full of love and adventure. Watch one of the videos - your heart will melt.
I met Courtnee several months ago and was blown away at her podcast. She is dedicated to telling the stories of how creatives got their start. But it’s not just any podcast - she combines the interview with photographs to tell the stories fully. This instagram account gives behind the scenes glimpses (and advice!) to the lives of creatives in a fresh way. Oh, and did I mention the interactive Q&A that you can do with each creative? Yeah. Go follow them.
This account speaks to all things feminine and fun. I peruse this account for straight up visual stimulation. The colors, textures, and richness satisfies my cravings for beauty. BONUS: She is also a huge proponent for self-love, and we can never have too much of that #AmIRight?
Conscious Lifestyle Magazine is a full service magazine that hits on your health, mind, body, and spirit. Their articles are not only inspiring, but also have tactical ways to improve your life. Their feed, along with the accompanying descriptions, feeds my soul with so much goodness.
Maybe it’s just because my mind is focused (and excited!) on moving into a new place….. but I am obsessed with all things home dec lately. Jessica’s Instagram provides the kind of inspiration that everyone needs to make their home look and feel magical - but in their own, unique way. The combinations of spatial arrangement, textures, shapes, light, patterns, etc. all leave me wanting more!
And who could forget my last two favorite Instagram accounts….
I admittedly have a problem with Instagram, that I am transferring to everyone I meet! I reimagined my feed about two months ago and since then - I cannot put it down. I have found a balance of providing great and inspiring content with a feed that resembles an art gallery. Here’s a sneak peek, but be sure to hop over to the account to see what I mean!
I’ve also spent this summer redoing the Inspirational Woman Project account. The account is not only featuring more powerful quotes from famous women, but also never-before-read quotes from OUR inspirational women! We’re currently working through the interviews from Volume 1, but soon we’ll start releasing content from Volume 2….. so be sure to follow for early glimpses of the new book.
