Do you remember MySpace and the time when you use to spend hours looking for the perfect wallpaper?
It was back then when I started making friends virtually, with people I only knew through the platform. Ok, the friends were from the city nearby, but anyway….
That’s where it all started. Fast forward for almost 10 years (!!) and we’re talking hashtags, tweets and snapchats like it’s all normal. I don’t know, it kinda is… To me, this constantly evolving digital space is somehow scary.
Call me old fashioned, but I’ll try to stick to my favorite platform(s) and try to avoid all the fuss around Snapchat & co.
So, let’s talk Instagram. The first thing I think of when I think of inspiration. It’s the essential mood booster for the bad days and the cherry on top for the good ones (because you simply have to share those good moments, right?)
What we see isn’t always the pure reality, that’s for fact and behind that perfect flatlay there might be a total mess, but, let’s not ruin the magic now.
My favorite ritual? Saturday morning, coffee in bed and having all the time in the world to infinitely scroll through the newest posts on IG (which to be honest, haven’t changed much since the last time I checked, khm, before going to bed) .
Ok, I’m exaggerating a little, but you get the point.
Today I wanted to share my 5 favorite accounts that makes every sip of my coffee a pure pleasure. It was so hard to choose just 5, so expect this list to be continued.
I strongly recommend you check them, because, why not make your Friday little better?
1. @ninagraceless – After I moved here, I’ve been following few local instagrammers to learn about the city and discover new places around. This lady caught my breath with her simplicity and talent for storytelling. Being a designer, she captures Chicago from a whole different perspective. Her videos, true work of art.2. @alice_gao – Lingered Upon was one of the first blogs I started reading constantly. I believe it was one of the reasons that motivate me to start my own blog. It has changed a lot through the years, but I still find myself scrolling through the newest posts and admiring the gorgeous photography Alice produces. Her Instagram account is just a squared version of the blog, so elegant and sophisticated.3. @nevolimruze – I don’t even remember when and how I discovered her account, but I do remember falling in love with every single one of her photos and double tapping almost all of them. Her elegant and minimalist aesthetic, her gorgeous apartment and her music taste make this lady a pure gem out there.4. @eva.vajd – She’s from my favorite country in the world, has a great style and an adorable furry friend. Her account gives me that “unbearable lightness of being” kind of feeling and makes my day little better with every post she shares.5. @reema desai – you can never get tired of travel and food photography. Especially when you stumble upon a photographer with beautiful and clean aesthetic like this lady here. Check her gallery when you need a little break in your busy day, it will be a real treat for your senses.
What about you? I’m sure you all have your top 5 Instagram accounts that inspire you daily… Feel free to share the inspiration!
Until next time, see you on Instagram!
