As the evenings get colder and the nights get shorter, it’s that time of year where – and let’s be really honest here – most of us spend our evenings snuggled up on the sofa with a mulled wine, scrolling through our IG feed. So, my early Christmas present to my fellow fashionistas this year is my personal list of ‘must-follow’ females on Insta. Sure to inspire you in the fashion, lifestyle, travel and food scenes, and guaranteed to show you how to up your Insta-game this season.
10. Louise Cooney – @louisecooney
Dublin-based blogger Louise produces so much style inspiration on a daily basis with her unique combination of city-chic and country couture. Be sure to check out her latest vlog of the Victoria’s Secret Store opening in Dublin.
9. Deliciously Ella – @deliciouslyella
Quite honestly this girl consistently produces the most beautiful, initiative meals I’ve ever seen – celebrating natural, healthy and down-right delicious ingredients. My attempts at Ella’s dishes never look as Insta-worthy as hers but every single one I’ve tried has tasted divine!
8. Louise O’Reilly – @stylemecurvy
Inspirational blogger, model and body image advocate Louise never fails to inspire me with her body-positive projects and flawless style! A must-follow female to fill your feed with positive vibes.
7. Camille Charriere – @camillecharriere
As a Parisian living in London, Camille brings her own edge of chic style from the fashion capital of Europe to the equally style-savvy British capital. She’s currently living it up in the French Alps which is causing me to shamelessly stalk her on an hourly basis to get a glimpse of one of my favourite places in the world.
6. Rosalyn – @thatsrosalyn
I’ll admit my wardrobe isn’t the most colourful but fashion, style and make up guru Rosalyn certainly offers me colour inspiration on a daily basis with her bold, unique and colour-confident style #colourqueen
5. It’s Beautiful Here – @itsbeautifulhere
Personally, this is the ultimate Insta profile for travel inspo. It’s Beautiful Here’s bio reads as ‘travel guides for the glittering eyes’ – and it does just that, bringing so much personal, creative and glamorous travel content my Insta feed. If her contributions are good enough for Harper’s and Vogue, they’re certainly good enough for me.
4. Pretty Little London – @prettylittlelondon
So I’m an English girl living in Belfast – naturally I get a little homesick every now and again. Thankfully, having Pretty Little London on my feed keeps me in touch with my southerner-self and keeps me in the loop with the top spots to visit when I take a trip home.
3. Misha Grimes – @misha_grimes
Also from my home county of Gloucestershire – and coincidently from my very own secondary school – this beauty queen is the definition of #instagoals. The current Miss Teen Galaxy genuinely has a gift for putting pieces I would never envisage together and creating the most incredible outfits. Not to mention her equally gorgeous and hilarious Mumma Grimes who features regularly on her Insta and YouTube.
2. Nuala Gorham – @nualagorham
Style queen and Dubliner Nuala Gorham genuinely fulfils all of my personal style goals on a daily basis. Quite honestly, I think we are style-soul-sistas because almost everything in my online shopping baskets keeps popping up on her Insta. Give this girl a follow for simple, chic and seriously classy style.
1. Valentina Steinhart – @valentina.steinhart
No girl will ever deny that she obsessively stalks that one Insta profile in utter awe. For me that is none other than Valentina Steinhart. This blonde-haired, blue-eyed Austrian beauty is undoubtedly the reason I cut my hair last year and why I pine on a daily basis to travel to my favourite cities in Europe. Alas, I think the closest I’ll ever get to this stunner is my Germanic name and my carbon copies of her clothes – but a girl can dream, right?
All I have left to say is… “you’re welcome”!
