OUR FAVORITE THINGS: Top 5 Instagram Accounts for Daily Inspiration
[Welcome to Our Favorite Things, a series featuring—you guessed it!—our favorite things. From books to brands to tunes to film, these are all things we at That First Year want to shout from the rooftops about.]
My morning is not complete without a cup of coffee and checking Instagram. Here’s my top 5 favorite accounts to spark your daily creativity. Keep daydreaming, my friends!
1) Margaret Zhang (@margaret_zhang)
Whatever the “it” factor is made of, this girl has it by the truck load. You can check out her full bio on shinebythree.com, but in a nutshell she’s a writer, stylist, photographer, model and creative director. Oh, and did I mention she’s also in law school in Sydney and ONLY 21? If you have an Instagram account and opposite thumbs, follow her now.
2) Hunter & Sarah Lawrence (@hunter_lawrence/@sarah_michelle_lawrence)
Two Instagrams, one marriage. He’s a photographer, and she’s a floral designer. Both graduated from my high school in Texas, so I guess I’m a little biased, but if you want to travel vicariously through others, look no further.
3) Bri Emery (@designlovefest)
LA-based creative director, blogger and traveler Bri Emery is the girl you want to follow if you want a daily dose of “WOW.” She travels around the world teaching Photoshop to bloggers, which is indeed the absolute coolest profession I’ve ever heard of.
4) Nicolee Drake (@cucinadigitale)
When in Rome, right? One look at her gallery, and it’s easy to see why half a million people already follow her Italy based digital kitchen on Instagram already. If you’ve ever dreamed of the “dolce vita,” this is the girl you want to follow!
5) Fat Tire Paris (@fattireparis)
Planning a trip to Paris? Wishing you were planning a trip to Paris? I only follow a handful of companies on Instagram, but this is one that I’ve been consistently following since I went on a few bike tours with them last summer. While they have different locations in Europe and the U.S., their Paris account is the one you’ll want to follow for your daily dose of Parisian life.
