Babes of Instagram who you should follow

September 9, 2019

One of the things I’ve always loved about Instagram is the community, the support, and the people I connect with. And something I’ve always loved to do is share accounts I love, which I’ve recently got out of the habit of doing. 

So it’s time to give a big fat shout out to some absolute Instagram babes.

I’ve followed most of these ladies for a while, some I connected with right back when I started blogging. Over the last few months each of these gals have supported me in one way or another, and probably don’t realise how much they’ve helped me. I also adore their content so I wanted to share their accounts with you. 


Meghan Walsh blog Instagram

Meghan is another Cambridge gal who I’ve followed for a while. I’ve had the pleasure of watching her pregnancy journey and seeing her beautiful little daughter Skye fill my feed with general cuteness. Meghan keeps it real at all times, she’ll let us know if she’s had a difficult day or had minus two hours sleep. She’s super relatable and also shares some fab beauty recommendations. Meghan has given me many messages of support in moments I needed it most.

I actually met Meghan for a glass of Prosecco in Cambridge recently and she really is as lovely as she seems online. An absolute star.


Kayla grid

Kayla is such a down-to-earth girl. Her positive posts in the morning give me so much motivation and she’s always there to offer a listening ear. She’s a flatlay queen and I’m always super envious of her gorgeous looking office. I’m hoping over the next year or so Kayla is going to be sharing some more of her wedding planning bits and I cannot WAIT to see what she wears.

Kayla is always one of the first to message and check in with me if I’ve disappeared for a little while and I cannot tell you how much I’ve appreciated her advice and support over the last few months.

I absolutely adore Harriet’s content. Her photos are beautifully positioned, the colour palette she uses is gorgeous, and her Guinea Pigs are so cute! I’ll also certainly be taking some interior inspiration from her over the next couple of weeks. Harriet has kindly shared her own experiences with me recently and it helped me so much. Just knowing you’re not alone in things is sometimes all you need.

Her fashion sense is also amazing, all the cute tee’s and pastel colours. Not just your average Essex Gal!


claire grid

I’ve met Claire a couple of times over the past few years at Cambridge blogging events. Claire is a Cambridge Instagrammer and Blogger who shares everything beautiful about Cambridge, all on her gorgeous bike.

I reached out to Claire a few months back when I was in a really low place, knowing she had been through a similar situation and she was right there for me. We met for coffee and chatted for hours. Claire is kind, understanding, and overwhelmingly positive despite life sometimes throwing shit her way. She’s been a huge inspiration of mine recently and I cannot thank her enough for being my coffee buddy and understanding ear.

Coffee date soon please?!

I’m so lucky to be part of such a strong, positive and supportive community on Instagram and I’m so glad each and every one of these ladies is there with me – you couldn’t find amore genuine bunch.

  2. I love when bloggers do a post on the Instagram accounts they follow! Thanks for sharing, I’m looking forward to adding people to my Following list 😀
    I’ve found that bloggers are some of the most supportive people I’ve met (virtually, of course). Lol.
