Friday Favorites: Instagram Accounts

There’s a chance you thought Friday Favorites was gone forever. If you follow me on Snapchat (if you don’t, why? ruthieprasil) you might have caught a glimpse of a video in which I announce it’s coming back. If you had your phone on silent because video snapchats drive you insane, I don’t blame you — but you’re missing out.

Anyway, Friday Favorites are back, but I’m going to be doing them in a more theme-like style. This week my Friday Favorites are all about women’s Instagram accounts.

I follow lots and lots of people on Instagram and I find myself regretting it once I see 5 or 6 in a row that try and suck me into a game of “tag a friend, like this pic and follow the link for the next entry!” But my very favorite Instagram accounts come from people who have a very low Selfie to Normal Picture ratio (if you have 1 selfie for every 5 – 10 non-selfie picture — and I’m talking about a true selfie, one that is JUST YOU in the picture, not you and your kids or you and your husband/wife —- then you need to re-evaluate), take really beautiful photos, and captions that make you think, but not too hard. Here are my favorite 10:

All of these women have beautiful feeds. You’ll never feel judged by what they post. You’ll never feel like they want you there just so they can sell you stuff. You’ll feel like you know them (which is a strange feeling if you don’t actually know them — thanks, social media) and you’ll find yourself interested in their lives, what they have to say and rooting for them when things might get rough, when they take on a new adventure, and when big things happen. Check them out and happy Friday!
