I’ve started spending a lot more time on Instagram recently – both posting and just scrolling through and finding new people and accounts to follow!
I’ve found a few recently that have very quickly become some of my favourites – joining a trusty few that I cannot stop looking at!
We all do it – scroll through and look at how colourful and insta-perfect peoples lives look – we all know it’s filters and specific moments and things aren’t all that insta-perfect every single moment of the day, but it’s a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine to make a nice cup of tea and scroll through these accounts, lusting over gorgeous flat-lays, colourful landscapes, locations all over the world that I’m desperate to visit, really cute pics of babies or puppies, bloggers doing their thing and being sassy in the process, wedding dresses I’d love to try on, food I want to eat and everything in between!
@monalogue – Ramona manages to make Bristol, my home town, more beautiful than I have ever seen it – she is also an amazing home baker making this account full of yummy home cooking and gorgeous city shots! (www.monalogue.co.uk)
@stefanywithers – Adorable baby pictures, family posts and shots of her pregnancy (she has recently given birth to the incredibly cute, Parker – congratulations!) – love her colour scheme and how happy her whole account looks – definitely making a broody Rosie here! (www.chalkkids.co.uk)
@hannahfgale – I’ve mentioned Hannah on this blog before – Lifestyle and Fashion blogger extraordinaire who can whack out a nostalgic list like no-one else. Her insta is so gorgeously colourful, with fashion, beauty, ice cream, holidays and more. (www.hannahgale.co.uk)
@sheddenflora – Anyone who watched this year’s series of ‘The Great British Bake Off’, or read my post about the run up to the finals will know who Flora is. Her cooking posts make my mouth water every time a new shot is posted – thank goodness she has a food blog ready for finding the recipes! 🙂 (www.florashedden.com)
@beautyjunkieldn – Jen is another blogger based in London and her account is full of make up, beauty and pampering products, shots of London and, possibly most importantly, adorable pictures of her gorgeous daschund, Monty! (www.beautyjunkielondon.com)
@ruffledblog – Ladies, don’t lie, we all love a little bit of a bridal browse every now and again, even if a wedding is on the furthest of horizons away – this is the account to follow! Wedding dresses, flowers, venues, cakes and everything wedding is covered here and it all looks gorgeous! (www.ruffledblog.com)
@raffaellaferrigno – Based in Italy, this account is full of sunshine, good food and city views with a difference (a lot of the recent ones have been in venice, which I class less as a city and more as an inconceivable beautiful place I’m desperate to go back to!) (www.ruedescerisiers.com)
@dewintonpaperco – Harriet designed my logo for this site and since I started working with her I have been following her account – she does hand created stationery, watercolours, private communions and wedding work and it is all stunning! Check her out! Plus, she made me such a gorgeous logo – I’m still getting comments and tweets almost daily from people saying they love it – this is the brains and the creativity behind it! 🙂 (www.dewintonpaperco.com)
@littlebigbell – Geraldine is another London blogger on my list – I just love her colourful posts, beautiful flat-lays and really creative location photos that make London seem a much more colourful and friendly place! (www.littlebigbell.com)
@catching_the_sunrise – Beautiful flat-lays, coffee shots, and location photos – she even posted a picture of Oxford street this week that didn’t make me need to lie down with a cold towel on my head (I’m not a fan of Oxford Street) – far from the tourist-filled, cramped, sweaty and stressful people-maze that it is, she made it look calm and pretty! Bravo!
@blossomandbuttercups – Blogger and Pin Up model, Sam, has possibly the most enviable figure I’ve ever seen – she is totally standing up for us girls with curves, and, with some amazing corsets, takes the most incredible hourglass shots – definite girl crush! Sam also writes very openly about mental health issues which is only to be admired – it really is beautifully written too – have a read : shewhoisnotalice.tumblr.com
I’m also on Instagram at @rosieladkin – pop over and say hi!
