lovetomtom loves Instagram
I will be the first to admit it, I am addicted to my phone. I always have it close by and find it very difficult not to check it every few minutes. Ridiculous I know, but we all have our weaknesses.
One thing I love and will not apologise for, is Instagram. Endless hours of discoveries that satisfy all my creative needs. It’s not just looking at other people’s images that fills my days, I like to see how people use Instagram, the way they style their images and what stories they are telling.
My Instagram feed is a real mix. I love checking in on my favourite accounts and then stumbling across new and wonderful images and people to follow. Everything from makeup brands, fashion houses, illustrators, interior designers, foodies, favourite shops, shops I wish I could visit in person and vintage lovers. They all fill my screen (and head) with stunning images and inspiration, and I thought I would show you some of my current favourites.
You can probably guess already that the likes of Valentino and Giambattista Valli are high on my list. Not only are their products pure beauty but the images and overall styling fill me with such envy!
Beth Kirby of Local Milk is another account filled with stunning images. There is something about her styling that makes me want to jump into her world! Her images (and blog) are really worth a look.
Brittany Watson Jespen of The house that lars built satisfies a whole different side of me and her account can only be described as colourful, playful happiness.
Next up is Alea Toussaint. Her prints and patterns again make me so envious (in the nicest possible way) that someone can create such beautiful things. I secretly wonder what print she would design for me!
For all my travel needs it’s hard to go past Hervé in Paris and Rebecca Plotnick.
As for food, Molly yeh takes the cake (get it!?!) and makes me want to stick my head in whatever wonderful creation she is making.
When it comes to makeup and beauty, the usual suspects are there. NARS, Charlotte Tilbury, Lisa Eldridge, Mary Greenwell and the list goes on and on and on!
Last but definitely not least is Kenneth Brewster Edwards. I don’t encourage wishing to be anyone other than oneself but this account is for the dancer in me and yes, part of me wishes it was me both in the photographs and taking the photographs.
I should make the point that I follow people/accounts/brands because I like them, so the above is just a glimpse into what is filling my screen. It would be a very long post if I included them all!
