If you spend as much time as we do on Instagram then you'll know the value of enjoyable posts when you're scrolling through your feed. According to Techcrunch, Instragram has doubled its user base to a whopping 700 million monthly actives in just two years! This is in large part fueled by Stories, web signups and better onboarding on low-end Android phones. For reference, this makes Instagram more than twice the size of Twitter.
But before I start to sound like Zac with all the geeky stuff, let me share with you my own picks of the best Instagrammers out there. These are the accounts that I find entertaining and inspiring - the accounts that I enjoy following and believe you should follow too. Just so you know, it's in no particular order and nor is is based on anything other than my own personal opinion.
I met Taza in Hyde park recently and she exudes happiness much in the way she does in her images. I know it's not very British to do so but I love it! I also love her sense of style and family spirit.
Lovely themes and posts often include her adorable family (did you see what she just said about her hubby Ryan Reynolds?).
Can never take the block out of this girl! Mama, Latina and all round body envy.
For family life, interiors and for keeping it real.
Wonderful and beautiful images of London, often featuring other accounts. Isn't London just the best?!
This account satisfies and nurtures the Parisian wannabe inside me. Cute, chic and full of simplicity.
Hilarious and sometimes wholly inappropriate. A curated set of images and videos by a community of Mums not short on jokes, sarcasm and much needed honesty with modern parenting.
Dreamy images of the parent you want to be when your kids listen. Children of Instagram features images of parenting from all around the world, most of them are stunning and you'll find it hard not to gush.
Someone give this woman her own TV show already. An absolutely hilarious greek mum from London, who has created original and fun characters that you can't help growing to love. Our favourite is Alexia Stifado - Greek rock star and part time Zumba instructor. Please check her out and share!
This account is original and totally gorgeous to look at.
Amazing dishes, with as few ingredients as possible. Sounds good to me!
Wonderful curation of food, interior and lifestyle shots. Inspiring and offers great ideas.
