Instagram has fallen a little bit out of favour recently, hasn’t it? What with the algorithm changes, people not getting as much engagement, bot followers creeping around all over the place. It’s just not as fun as it used to be. But, it still remains my favourite social media platform. It’s pretty, pleasing to the eye and oh my goodness, some of the pictures people create are just incredible.
One thing Instagram never fails to do – no, it’s not blessing me with a million like per post just yet, boo! – is give me wanderlust. Especially during the summer months. Everyone seems to be travelling somewhere exotic – apart from me. Again, BOO! – and my wanderlust has reached peak levels. So much so that I wanted to share with you the Instagrams feeds that are giving me all the summer feels and make me want to jet off somewhere sunny asap. Sorry UK, you just ain’t cutting it weather wise at the minute! Here’s my Instagram favourites of the summer…
From Lebanon to Portugal, Ibiza to The Philippines, Caoilfhionn’s feed never fails to inspire me whatever time of year but recently she’s been to some jawdroppingly beautiful places. Lisbon is now firmly on my list after seeing the all the images of detailed mosaic tiles – oh, and the gelato.
Imii’s photos are always pretty incredible but take one look at her recent adventure to Canada and oh my goodness, you’ll be saying “take me there” before you’ve even scrolled through 9 insta photos. I always thought I wanted to visit Canada in winter when the landscape looks all crisp with snow but now I think a summer visit is the way forward…
If you want cute Hawaii vibes all wrapped up in one insta account, head to Cara’s feed because it. Is. BEAUT. It’s what I wish my feed looked like except I live 2 hours away from the coast and a MAMMOTH journey away from Hawaii, so it would be impossible. But I can live with enjoying this set of dreamy photos until I can get my bum to Hawaii for a holiday.
Grab your shades because you’re definitely going to need it for this one. Dominika from The Blonde Flamingo puts together one of the most gorgeous, colourful, bright feeds you will ever see. It’s like the sun just follows every photo she takes and it’s blummin’ lovely.
Adventure for days with Erin’s feed. Summer doesn’t always have to be about white sand beaches, swaying palm trees and blue skies. It’s about enjoying the earth, exploring somewhere new and having fun with nature. That’s the vibe I get from Erin’s images, and the beautiful words she often adds, will educate and inspire. This to me is more than just an instafeed, it’s a little source of happiness that makes me want to discover new places while the sun is shining. Oh heck, even when the sun isn’t shining too.
Not going to lie, I love Alice’s style. The photos she features are always so happy and full of good vibes. A mixture of running, food and cool places, this feed makes me want to be a better version of myself. To get out there and make the most of the early mornings. Oh and Alice’s recent pictures from Croatia and Wilderness Festival have just been total summer vibes all round.
I’m borderline addicted to Flying The Nest’s vlogs so it’s only fair I love their insta too, right? Both Stephen and Jess’ feeds are awesome and are always so full of love and happiness. They recently got married in Mykonos – if you haven’t watched their adorable vlog, go check it out – and have since adventured to Santorini, Croatia, London and the Jurassic Coast. All of which are places I’m even more desperate to go to now I’ve seen them popping up on my Insta so often!
Do you have any good instagram accounts you can recommend? I always love discovering new finds that I can spend hours scrolling through!
