Instagram Accounts That Inspire Me

Inspired my Midnight Wanderer’s post linked here.

Shannon Barry

So, Crohn’s Disease. Have you googled it yet? If not, let me fill you in. Don’t worry, I know what I’m talking about because I literally google “Crohn’s” every other day. It’s my version of Facebook stalking myself, only much more anonymous and sadder. Crohn’s is a chronic gastrointestinal disease. By now you have probably looked it up and recognised some of the symptoms from your own life – don’t worry. Pretty much anything sounds like a symptom. You can rest easy, you don’t have Crohn’s. Unless, of course, you do, which is why your mom/aunt/random Facebook friend sent you the link to this blog. In that case, sorry.

If you haven’t already gathered from the bio above, Shannon has Crohn’s Disease, something that is very prevalent throughout her blog and her Instagram. But what I love most about Shannon, apart from her honesty and how she always expresses her gratitude for the life she lives, are the short stories that accompany each Instagram post. The stories can range from recapping a day she had with friends to a night spent in the bath because her symptoms have flared up again, but the one thing that have in common is that they always leave me reflecting on my own life.

Sophie Rosie

Hello, my name is Sophie Rosie… but I’d love it if you’d call me Soph. I’m a 23 year old girl currently trying to brunch and blog her way through finding her feet in the big city of London. I write about life, career & work, fashion & style, as well as hopefully providing some inspiration to achieve some of your goals too. I really hope you enjoy.

Soph is one of my favourite bloggers at the moment and one of the main inspirations behind my blog. She has recently moved to London, which I can relate to having moved to London for University two years ago. I especially love when she posts about a new cafe she has discovered in London because I love trying new food places. She is honestly someone I feel I could be best friends with, united by our love of brunch and coffee.

Kalyn Nicholson

Caffeinated soccer mom to my dog. Documenting life via jpg/mp4 so I can watch it back when I’m old and senile.

Kalyn is a lifestyle YouTuber who is best known for her GYST and mental health videos. After watching one of her YouTube videos, I always feel inspired and like I can take on the world.

Olivia Vargus

Sup babes, make sure to thrive today.

Olivia, or Liv, is a lifestyle YouTuber who uploads videos about college, being vegan and loving yourself. What I love about her videos are how honest they are and how much her personality comes through, her videos feel real and personal to her. She is one of the most positive people I know and I hope to, one day, be as positive a person as she is.

Monica Church

My name is Monica. I’m just a 20 something year old girl trying to navigate the world. I dropped out of college to pursue the digital lifestyle and am now stuck in a place of unfulfillment and confusion. Like most people my age, I’m not sure what I want to do with my life – but I’n going to find out and take you along with me! Welcome to My Millennial Life Crisis.

Monica has a main channel but I prefer her vlog channel where she uploads sometimes daily, sometimes weekly, vlogs. As a long-time viewer, I have been able to watch her transform her life over the past year from one of unfulfillment to one where she seems a lot happier and content with life.
