Five Inspirational Instagram Accounts That I’m Loving Lately

I feel like I’ve really rediscovered my love for Instagram. A platform that gets a bad rep for being unhealthy, hard to grow on and a breeding ground for giving users a serious case of FOMO – lately I’ve unfollowed accounts that no longer inspire, set up a new account I’m having lots of fun with and now, Instagram is a place that brings me joy!

These are the five accounts that I’ve been loving lately and would recommend following – if they’re your bag, that is!

For Foodies

The Mothercooker is run by Gem – a food blogger/stylist/extraordinaire. Her recipes, visually, look incredible and having turned my hand to a couple of them, are super delicious and simple to make too! I love her latest ‘In Season’ series, featuring veggies and herbs that are, as it says on the tin, in season now. Go give her a follow!

Potato and spring onion cakes. A delicious way to use up any leftover mashed potato you might have. Stuffed with spring onion and Parmesan cheese, you could eat them with a poached egg or a lovely salad. Peas would be a fantastic addition when prolific in a few months. Or you could add some delicious wild garlic…which I’ve moved to next week. Happy weekend! . . . . #themothercooker #potato #inseason #springonion #springonions #eattheseasons #seasonalfood #growyourown #allotmentlife #sowgrowcook #sowtogrow #mothercookergarden #foodblogger #foodphotographer #foodtographyschool #foodblogfeed #feedfeed #mashedpotato #useupyourleftovers

Everything Beauty

I’ve followed Anoushka Loves for such a long time, but recently I feel like she’s got her mojo back and her beauty content is beeeaaautiful! She does the most for the rest of us by purchasing the latest new-in eyeshadow palettes to put to the test and show off the insane pigments, so we’re investing our money wisely! If colourful make-up is your bag, go follow!

Styling Inspo

If I need some outfit inspo, I always go for a nose on Lauren’s profile to see how she’s styled certain items and put outfits together. I love doing this when I’m trying to save money and shop my wardrobe rather than wanting to throw everything away and start again! Also, she’s dead funny and is a lovely girl so I would highly recommend following her!

Last night, I went to see the new Birds Of Prey film. If you love yourself a bit of Harley Quinn, it’s definitely worth a watch. I think every female has a little Harley Quinn in her! 💗💙🃏 Also, the trailer for the new Mulan and Wonder Woman look amazing. (I need to see those too!) Not gonna lie, I’m loving all these badass female movies that are coming out! What’s your favourite film with a bit of girl power in it? . . . . . . . . . . #weekendootd #denimjacket #blackoutfit #imwearingri #riverisland #missguided #babesofmissguided #mermaidhair #oversizedjacket #sheffieldbloggers #ootd #100likes #misguidedclothing #zara #zarawoman #zarafashion #zaraoutfits #asseenonme #asosmedia #girlpowerquotes #womenempowerment

Interior Porn

Since we bought our house nearly two years ago (that’s flown, wow) I would say mine and our style in general has evolved from everything Mrs Hinch grey to being longtime lovers of black interiors. The House That Black Built is such a gorgeous account and I’m slowly convincing Darren that we should include more black decor in our home, we’ve already transformed most of the lounge and I love her fashion posts too!

[AD] Had a little re-jig of this shelf, and when I say little I mean little, I don’t really ‘do’ changing things up. Everything has it’s home in our house and that’s where it stays until I redecorate 😂 Anyway, can you spot the new addition? Our little SimpliCam from @simplisafe_uk 📹 Super discreet but such a great peace of mind item – swipe to see some cam footage of my failed attempt to try and scare Mr S, I’m normally much better I promise 😂 – and check out my Simplisafe highlight for more info on the rest of our new security system 🙌🏼🖤

A Little Self-Promo….

Influencer Marketing Queens is my new venture and one I’m having loads of fun with, as I explained earlier. A little bit of self-promo never hurt nobody and as I undergo a couple of career changes in the next couple of months, it’s the perfect way to dip my toe into the world of freelancing and full-time blogging, whilst enjoying the blogger community in a very millennial tone of voice. If you like inspirational quotes and getting insider influencer marketing tips, come join the party!

🌟The reason behind starting this account is because I wanted to push myself out of my comfort zone and take a risk. Freelancing is never easy, but here it goes 🌟 I’ve handed my notice in at my 9-5 job (well 8-4.30 hello flexi) as after four great years, in the words of Marie Kondo, it no longer brought me joy 🌟 I’m a firm believer in progress over perfection. We’re never too old to take a risk – if you win, you’ll be happy. If you lose, you’ll be wise
