I am completely addicted to Instagram at the moment, spending hours aimlessly scrolling through my feed and looking for new accounts to follow. There are millions of accounts out there and loads of them are very same-y, but here are a few that I’ve discovered that actually offer something a little bit different. This list is by no means exhaustive as I know there are tonnes of creative accounts out there, but these are a few of my favourites.
Please note all images belong to their respective accounts.
Fashion meets food! Gretchen Röehrs loves playing with food and turning things that you’re used to seeing on your plate into fashion designs.
The story of an adorable little girl called Philo and her dog Pompon! This French account is updated regularly with pictures of Philo and Pompon exploring life together. Cute dog + cute baby … What’s not to love?!
Laura Jenksinon is a makeup artist… with a twist. You’ll find designs of all your favourite characters, mostly Disney, that have been cleverly drawn onto Lauren’s own face! I’m both amazed and a little weirded out by her creations, but you can’t deny this girl’s got talent!
Darryll’s latest photo is in front of the Radcliffe Camera, the main library in Oxford, so I’m already in love with his account! That post has made me feel a little nostalgic and sad that my friends will be going into third year without me soon, but I’ve already booked my Eurostar tickets to go home and visit next month so Oxford I’m coming for ya! Darryll photographs pictures of Billie the stormtrooper as he battles his way through life. These posts really are incredible as in lots of them it looks like Billie is life-size! This account is a must for all Star Wars fans and anyone else that wants to add a dash of humour to their Instagram feed.
It was a roundabout 1749, when the weather was a little fine, that the Radcliffe Camera popped into existence… Now not a camera as such you know, but a room where books and texts would flow, and to get in you'd need university assistance…. Us mere commoners simply drive past, and admire the building, so intricate, so vast, and pose for a picture or two… unaware of the interior view. Magnificent treasures lie within, all bound by leather and compliance, old tomes and writings, on the subject of magic and science… So if you head down to Oxford today, you won't see Billie as he has sped away, but give yourself a wonderful treat, and eyeball this building, alas from the street. 😝 #haveyouseeneric #honda #monkeybike #oxford #motorbike #ride #summer #british @hondauk #instagram #radcliffecamera #oxforduniversity #science #library #lovegreatbritain @lovegreatbritain
We all have a friend (or friends) who is a crazy cat lady. There are loads of Instagram accounts about cute and fluffy animals out there, but how many of them feature your furry friend rolling in money? Presenting… cashcats! As the name suggests, you’ll find lots of cats and lots of money on this fantastically weird account.
Aren’t this posts so cool?! It makes me so happy to scroll down my feed and see something a little different to your typical lifestyle post. I’m sure there are loads of other unique accounts out there so what are some of your favourites? Let me know in the comments below, I’d love to discover even more!
And finally, if you want to check out my account on Instagram, where I post pictures of books around Paris, here’s some of my stuff *shameless plug*
I said goodbye to Paris this morning but I haven't come back empty handed! I picked up the essentials (wine & cheese) as well as a copy of Lolita, recommended by @relationsheep when we met at the Shakespeare & Co bookstore! It was so lovely to start the week by meeting Parisian bookstagrammers @relationsheep and @lunabookaddict 💕 Do you know many bookstagrammers in real life?
Pin for later!
