Instagram is my go-to when I'm needing a social media fix.
I'm not sure why I gravitate to it, but there's something about snippets of time that intrigues me. Whether it be photography, information, needing a laugh or wanting to "ooh" and "ahh," Instagram has a little bit of everything I need. Here are some of my favorite Instagram accounts!
The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust was founded in 1977 by Dr. Dame Daphne Sheldrick in honor of her late husband. Located in Kenya, the DSWT is the most successful orphan-elephant rescue and rehabilitation centers in the world. Their Instagram account is filled with adorable pictures and videos of orphaned elephants, success stories, and their fight against poaching. Check out their website here on information on fostering an elephant in order to help out their cause!
2. Love and Lemons
Jeannie and Jack are the husband and wife team from Austin, TX that created the Love and Lemons blog to showcase their delicious, mostly vegetarian recipes. Their Instagram account is delightfully eye catching and beyond beautiful. They have a new cookbook out that I cannot wait to get! See it here on Amazon.
3. GMA Deals
Good Morning America's Tory Johnson and her team scour the country looking for popular brands best deals. She posts the deals on Instagram, and I can vouch that I have picked up some great things at greatly discounted prices. But act fast, the deals don't stick around for long!
4. Dog Tales Rescue
Ermagersh. Dog Tales Rescue is a dog rescue and horse sanctuary located in King City, Ontario. Located on 50 acres, this picturesque rescue provides the perfect setting for abused and neglected animals to heal in order for them to find their forever homes. Their Instagram account features dogs ready for adoption and other members of their animal family living at the sanctuary. These people are doing amazing things! I only wish Ontario wasn't so far away!
5. I Am Her Tribe
Danielle Doby is the owner and creator of this gorgeous and uplifting Instagram account. I always look forward to her powerful words. She's real, raw, and unapologetic in the way she attacks life head on.
6. Celeste Barber
This Instagram account can make me laugh like no other. Celeste Barber is an Australian stand-up comedian and writer who pokes fun at celebrity photographs with her own real-world re-enactments. It's the frigging best, and everyone needs a little laughter in their life, right?
7. Mrs. Angemi
I guess I should put a "WARNING: Graphic" note on this one, eh? Nicole Angemi is the creator of this Instagram account and uses her real-life job as a pathology assistant to share her information, however gory that might, with the world. It is a fascinating account of the human body! Hey, I might not be nursing anymore, but I still like a little knowledge ;)
8. Jay's Baking Me Crazy
Jay's Baking Me Crazy is owned and operated by Jessica, a wife and mother looking for a healthy way to help her family feel better. She began cooking and blogging and hasn't looked back. She's a Whole 30, Paleo, and gluten free cook and baker, and I haven't come across a recipe of hers yet that I haven't loved! For anyone like myself that struggles with food allergies and sensitivities, I highly recommend this Instagram. And look how pretty it is!
9. Red Brick Mantle
I have a love/hate relationship with this Instagram because it is SO BEAUTIFUL! I want to be just like Tanis! Red Brick Mantle is eye candy galore focusing on interior decorating, styling, painting, and more. I could stare at it all day, just dreaming away!
10. BuzzFeed Tasty
This might be the fluffy kid living inside of me, but I find it so soothing to watch recipes from start to finish. Almost everything featured on this Instagram account looks hella delicious (and maybe also 5,000 calories). I CAN'T LOOK AWAY.
Oh, Betches, how you make me laugh. This website, Instagram, store, QUEENDOM was created by three college gals. They are unapologetic with their words, and they are here for us gals. Basically, they are my sheros.
12. Esther the Wonder Pig
Esther is an adorable pig owned by Steve and Derek. Funny thing is, they thought they were adopting a micro piglet, but Esther kept growing and growing. Before they knew it, Esther was 600lbs! Realizing they needed to make a change, they bought a farm and created the Happily Ever Esther Farm Sanctuary. This Instagram account follows their happy lives and I am here for it! They also have a new book out about their story! Get it here on Amazon!
13. The Dogist
Okay, okay, I know practically every one follows The Dogist, but if you don't, you should! It started in NYC by a man named Elias who started taking photos of peoples dogs. Since blowing up, he's visited over 50 cities around the world and photographed their pooches. I mean does he have the best career now or what? HERO! It doesn't hurt that Elias takes fabulous photos. The Dogist never fails to lighten my spirit and make me smile. He also has a book out. Get it here and look for The Dogist Puppies edition coming in September!!
Welp, there ya have it! Some of my favorite Instagram accounts. There are a ton more out there I can't wait to find and fall in love with.
