I love Instagram! It can connect people from all over the world, and with a click of a button you can find out just what they are up to. Of course, you can use this app in ways that aren’t good and some people tear others down with it! But I have found some amazing accounts that not only lift each other up, but share some amazing goals, tips, tricks, and love! As well as photos of course! Each of these accounts has inspired me in some way and I want to share a little bit about them and how they have helped me in 2019!

And now, for what you all came for! In no particular order, my favourite Insta accounts of 2019 and how they inspire me:
In her bio, Kiki states she is a beach bum. This is 100 percent accurate as her feed explodes with beach shots and her in cute bikinis. She is such a model and I love seeing a new photo from her pop up on my feed! Her username is so unique and she inspires me to dream and live life to the fullest, and also to book flights to sunny beaches! She always posts inspiring quotes on her stories as well!
Taylor is the sweetest Instagrammer I have met this year! Even though she has quite a large following, she is so good at engaging, even with smaller accounts like myself! Whenever I message asking for help or advice with Instagram, she is always there to answer! She is gorgeous and is constantly standing behind great causes. Her photos are amazing and her outfits are the cutest. I absolutely love the fact that she is so real, shares so much about herself and doesn’t try and hide anything. She inspires me to be myself and to take the world by storm!
Thisgirlabroad is an account I discovered on my trip to Hong Kong in December! She gave me a recommendation to Tim Ho Wan for the best dim sum and it didn’t disappoint! She also has lots of followers but always takes time to reply to my messages! Her most recent trip was to Sri Lanka and her feed is filled with palm trees, food and monkeys, 3 of my favourite things! Her stories are often her eating at some new restaurant in Hong Kong. She makes me want to book another flight back to that beautiful place!
Krista is another lady I found through the Instagram challenge. Her photos are always so gorgeous, whether they be pretty Christmasy ones, huge castles, or her on a beach somewhere, they all make you feel like you are in a fairytale! I love that she is Canadian, too. She inspires me to travel to see the unique things she posts about! She is recently posting more lifestyle posts: yummy smoothie bowls, etc. Her next destination is the Bahamas!
Hannah is currently living in Vietnam! She is a yoga teacher as well as an online coach/multipassionate! She is also a nomad which I admire so much. This lovely lady inspires me to dream big and never give up. Her posts always inspire me to stop and think, make goals and go somewhere in life!
Charlotte is one of the big travel accounts I follow on Instagram! She has lots of followers but she recently did an Instagram challenge where she taught us all about Instagram, from captions to engaging and so much more! Because of her, my account has grown so much and I have met so many amazing people on this platform! I love that she took time out of her busy life to help small accounts like myself grow and learn ways to gain real followers. She inspires me with her stunning photos to travel to far away places like Iceland and Germany!
Abi is a cutie who loves to travel and actually quit her job to live life to the fullest! She has great goals for 2020 and shares her adventures on youtube as well as Instagram and she’s starting a blog as well! She is constantly posting photos of Italy which makes me want to visit even more. Her photos are so cute and I love the color in them. She inspires me to pursue my dreams even if it may seem scary!
Ellinor is a gorgeous gal who loves beautiful nature! Since she is a vegan, she shares different ways to eat better as well as help the planet which is so inspiring! She always shares about her day in her stories and it’s always so nice to see her smiling face. As med student in Sweden, she still takes time out of her busy day to interact with all her followers with lovely comments! She inspires me to keep healthy, enjoy nature, stay smiling and take amazing photos!
Kate is from the Philippines and living in Virginia but her feed is full of palm trees and lovely blue water as well as her cute face! Her posts are always so thought provoking and make you stop and think. She talks about what home means to her or the purpose of Instagram for her and then challenges you to answer. She absolutely inspires me to travel as well as see life in new ways!
Sofia and Fredrik are a cute couple from Sweden who are currently exploring Australia in their van they basically made themselves! They have stories of all the different things they added/put in it. They are always doing neat things like riding a hot air balloon, dinner cruise, or hiking to see a gorgeous sunset and they always take you along by sharing these adventures on their stories! I love their photos and I am inspired by them to see the world and try new things! They are easily one of my favourite travel couples.
Matt and Hannah are one of my favourite travel couples for sure! I absolutely love the name they chose and their photos are always super cute and well done! They are currently in Koh Tao, Thailand and their feed is always cute couple poses in stunning locations! In the captions on the photos they always include their coordinates (either to the town they are in or the spot the photo was taken!) which I think is so unique. I am inspired by them to someday find that special someone and make memories in crazy places!
Brennan and Ashley are a travel couple who inspire me to show love! They definitely make me want to find my special someone to travel the world with. This cute couple was recently in Colorado where they experienced snow and skiing for the first time, being adorable the entire time! They are constantly on fun adventures, eating good food and hugging each other in the places they go!
Lilli works a full time job but still finds time to travel to amazing places like Thailand, Germany, Italy, Turkey, the list goes on! Her photos are amazing and give me wanderlust for sure! She is constantly giving shout outs to other accounts and she does a feature called #traveltuesday where she shares her favourite accounts from that week on Tuesday. I even decided to try it out since she seemed to love doing it! She inspires me to always lift others up!
I discovered Sanjukta’s account in 2019 and I remember loving how colorful her feed was and thinking she was so gorgeous! Her posts are always so fun and her stories are so interactive. She has the cutest cat named Felix! I love that she takes time to reply to my messages and comment on my photos, I really appreciate that! She recently hit 50K followers which is amazing! With her stunning photos from around the world, she inspires me to travel and see amazing places! Most recently I have been inspired by her Greece photos.
I forget how I connected with Sofia but I am so glad we did! I feel like we are similar in some ways. Her posts are always so good, I love the ones that tell stories and the adventures she’s had. Her stories are always so nicely done and very often there is a sunset capture in one of them! She inspires me to always be looking for the beauty in nature as her feed is always full of nature and beautiful scenery. She is from Finland which is cool because I distinctly remember reading a book about that beautiful country as a child and wanting to visit! Hopefully someday I will get to, and Sofia can show me all the best places!
Tammy is constantly sharing great food spots in LA to eat. Since I am a foodie, she makes me want to book a flight to Cali pretty much everyday! (And I already want to anyways!) The food always looks so delicious and I can’t wait to go back to LA and check out some of the spots she tries and maybe even have a lunch date?!
I hope you enjoyed reading all about my favourite accounts and why they inspire me! There are so many great accounts that I follow, and I would have loved to include so many more (maybe I’ll make another post!) but if I follow you, keep up the great content, I love seeing all the amazing places you’ve been and excited to follow you in 2020!
