10 Instagrams You Can't Live Without

I love Instagram. There I said it. I know I'm supposed to crave social media fasts and wish I lived in the 'good ole days' but here I am, a 29 year old stay at home mom of two living 1,100 miles away from the place I called home for most of my life. I need the gram.

Before you judge, of course it must be put in it's place. I'm not saying I love to just sit and scroll all day long; nah. But I love seeing my friend's families grow, what my sister cooked for dinner, the ridiculous sunglasses my dad just bought and the new donut shop opening up that I'll visit next time I'm home. 

Instagram is a powerful tool for connecting us to people we never would meet otherwise. People that share their brilliance with us, people that inspire us, people that can evoke a laugh on really long days and bring joy.  Simply put: in the correct priority, instagram can be a positive thing.  So tap into the beneficial wonderland of Instagram. Here are the people I find the most inspiring + fantastic to keep up with.

@cocokindskincare (Priscilla Tsai)

Priscilla is not only incredibly wise but funny too. You will learn how to take care of your skin + be entertained as you do. Priscilla is the real deal. You can sense it as you watch her stories and hear her passion for clean skin care pour out of her. Not to mention her products are not only organic, so clean you can eat and complete game changers but they're HELLA affordable. She is an entrepreneur, a crusher of skin-care myths and a dancer moreover.

@faringwell (Jessie Snyder)

Jessie's feed is just what her insta claim to be; learning to fare well. I live somewhat vicariously through Jessie's sunny California kitchen. She propels the farm to table movement like no one else and does it with a simple beauty and grace. She focuses more  on creating her own versions of high end grocery items rather than trying to find a way to purchase them. Her charming bike rides alongside her husband and hauls from the local farmer's market are nothing short of goals.

@twistoflemons (Katie Lemon)

I have learned so much from Katie. She is a functional medicine nutrition student and shares the why behind all the good mood food. She speaks a lot on gut health, feeding your brain and dealing  with stress through the means of food. In between all the pretty plates are some handstands and puns.  Soak up this girl's insight because it's beyond brilliant.
