The Totally Random Instagram Accounts I Follow

So it’s been over a month since my last round-up of Instagram accounts you should “totally follow” but I promised you one more post and one more post you shall receive. I present to you: The TOTALLY RANDOM folks I personally follow. Whatta ya say? Wanna see who fills my feed (& my heart!)?

[Besides the FOODIES and the CELEBS and the BLOGGERS!]

Let’s Scroll —

eriqlasalle … because the OG cast of ER is life.

bustle … for the relatable memes.

marachok … for my obsession with all things Russian ballet.

usweekly … following has drastically reduced my urge to buy trash magazines (+ they have “Who Wore it Better” polls in their IG stories and I can’t resist that).

ownitbabe … sometimes even the most curated of social media feeds needs a shot of body positivity!

femalecollective … girl power!

todaypuppy … this is an obvious one, right?

90sanxiety … oh those nostalgia feels are strong.

cheapoldhouses … because I like to pretend I’m someone who could flip a house.

and way, WAY too many more!

The YouTuber Instagram Accounts You Should Totally Follow

Much like BLOGGERS, folks who share on YouTube are already offering us a glimpse into their worlds. Whether their channel showcases travel, food, style, or minimalist living…we get a backstage pass. All from the comfort of our homes!

[For more accounts to follow, check out these FOODIES and these CELEBS!]

And because YouTubers are already masterful video creators, following them on IG is EVEN MORE fun thanks to the advent of Instagram Stories. (Admittedly, one of the biggest time sucks in my day — whoops!) So, let’s take a look at a few of my favorite vloggers!

You Should Totally Follow —

kittenxlady … check out her channel HERE.

thebudgeteers … check out their channel HERE. (I can’t wait for Season 3 to drop!!)

simpleliving13 … check out her channel HERE. (Brittany shared her favorite mantra with Finding Delight readers in this post.)

badyogiofficial … check out her channel HERE. (Erin also shared a favorite mantra. Check it out!)

I have one more crop of Instagram accounts I’d like to share with y’all before I close out this series and that’s the TOTALLY RANDOM ones. I think I have a fair few of those (as I’m sure you do too!). If you’d like to follow me, I’m at @BBerg1012 and I’d love to connect! Leave your handles below!! 

The Blogger Instagram Accounts You Should Totally Follow

Bloggers already offer a great window into their world. They share insights and offer a peek at their lives in the form of blog posts, which often include beautifully crafted prose and top-notch photography. But sometimes you wanna see what’s going on in their lives in between these posts.

Enter Instagram. A great way for bloggers to share on the fly and show off their photo styling skills!

I’ve shared my favorite FOODIE and CELEB follows but today let me hit you with some Instagram accounts that are near and dear to my heart — BLOGGERS!

You Should Totally Follow —

carrotquinn … who blogs HERE.

taralynnmcnitt … who blogs HERE.

hannahcozens … who blogs HERE.

The Celebrity Instagram Accounts You Should Totally Follow

Are you as obsessed with scrolling through Instagram as I am? I thought so.

The last post in my little IG series featured FOODIES. This time, I’d love to talk CELEBS! I mentioned before that this social media platform feels like a combination of a few of my favorite things — magazines, photo albums, and…well…diaries (what can I say! I’m nosy, lol.)

As someone who used to impulse buy trashy celeb magazines at the grocery check-out counter, following a few of my favorite famous folk is a great (and FREE) alternative.

You Should Totally Follow —

michalabanas … for her stupid memes (that I secretly love) and her goofiness.

kristenanniebell … who I started following during Hurricane Irma but stuck around because how adorable are she and Dax Shepard!? 

parisjackson … because she’s a magical hippie starchild. Exhibit A. Exhibit B. Exhibit C.

busyphilipps … for the Instagram STORIES, of course! But also her cute kids and bestie Michelle.

mindykaling … because she is major style inspo and she’s always down to offer a hilarious look at on set life.

britneyspears … everything about this Instagram is PERFECT and if you’re not following please do yourself a dang favor. (Also, if you love this account as much as me, give this podcast a listen. #obsessed)

Over to you! Leave your fave celebrity follows in the comments below. Oh, and drop your IG handle as well. Mine is @BBerg1012 and I’d love to connect (even though I’m not at all famous, lol). 

The Foodie Instagram Accounts You Should Totally Follow

Way back in 2014, I wrote this post about why I love Instagram so much. Instagram is like a happy union between glossy magazine, family photo album, and public diary so it’s no wonder I still love scrolling through the app to this day!

With that in mind, I thought I’d do a little series shouting out some of the accounts I love to follow. Starting with a very controversial subject matter — FOOD. Secretly (well, not such a secret NOW), I LOVE the fact that there are folks out there who take pics of their meals. While I recognize the critique of the millennial snappin’ pics of her plate while her food gets cold is a valid one, the entertainment factor on my end is certainly enjoyable. (And if it brings the ‘grammer joy too then I say, “DO. YOU.”)

You Should Totally Follow —

amy__currie … for her Trader Joe’s hauls and serious commitment to Pizza Fridays.

beckyinbold … for the super simple Whole 30 meal ideas and hiker snacks.

chefdphillips … because she’s a Kentucky girl and she wrote an awesome cookbook.

honeysucklebeez … for the beautiful food styling and meal prep ideas for busy bees!

pinchofmar … for fresh fruit and veggie inspo and her realistic healthy meals.

100daysofrealfood … because real food is the BEST food and you gotta love a lunchbox snap!

Over to you! Leave your fave foodie follows in the comments below. Oh, and drop your IG handle as well. Mine is @BBerg1012 and I’d love to connect (even though my foodie IG game could use some work, lol).

What it do, baby-boos? Yesterday I brought back my favorite South Florida perk — the 2 p.m. break from work to to take a dip in the pool!!! Now I’m just struggle-bussin’ it through the last half of the work week when all I wanna do is drink boulevardiers, watch this docu-series on Netflix that everyone’s been raving about, and make pocket letters. Eeps! Weekend where are you??? Hope you’ve got some enticing weekend plans in mind, and here are a few links I found fascinating…

mid-week round-up

in the water

How are you this week, my friends? This one started out rough so I hope you are taking sweet and gentle care of yourselves. I hope you are finding ways to laugh and hugging your loved ones tight. Love is love is love is love. I long for a time when senseless tragedies didn’t feel so familiar, but encourage us all to keep fighting for a world where they aren’t. In the wake of what was happening in the world, I was super lucky to have my mom visiting over the last few days. We saw a cool art exhibit, checked out a farmers market, took tons of pictures of tropical plants, and lounged at the beach. What a fun few days! She flew back to Lexington yesterday afternoon but I’ll be headed that way too in just two short weeks. Wedding countdown and all that. Eeps!

mid-week round-up

lady at beach

What are you up to, my loves? This past weekend Chet and I explored Coconut Grove. The temperature felt quite mild due to it’s proximity to the water but the humidity was still as gnarly and tropical as ever! Chet vlogged the whole adventure if you’d like to take a look HERE. Yesterday was a really productive day for me job-wise and I hope that work flow continues the rest of the week. I think this was due in large part to Chet fixing our internet which had been super spotty and annoying for the last week. Finally, we watched the movie Faults last night. Have you seen it? I love anything about cults so I was a huge fan. Have a great week, guys! And here’s a little reading material…
