My Favorite Instagram Accounts

I'll just say it - I have an addiction to Instagram. I'm constantly pulling down to refresh and I get very upset if I miss something from one of my favorites. I love seeing the beautiful places, delicious food and hilarious pictures of every day life. I usually unfollow accounts that have obviously staged photos every single day. #boring

Today, I wanted to share a few of my favorite Instagram accounts and why I love them.

1. Pictures of Minnesota make me feel nostalgic. I usually go on a kick browsing hashtags, but recently I stumbled across this account and became an instant fan.

2. I also feel that way about New Jersey, plus I love adding places to my list that I must explore.
3. NYC pictures are easy to come by, but I love the colors on this account.
4. Writing funny hashtags is a skill and this dog has it, plus he's the cutest damn dog ever (and he's friends with my dogs.) Follow him, k?
5. This woman is hiking the Appalachian Trail and checks in every few days by posting a photo. What an epic journey. I love following along.

6. Are you a Target fan? I love all things Target, but I don't go as much as I used to. Following this account allows me to know when there's something I need and then I'm on a mission.

7. This account shows a picture every day of the sunrise from Hoboken. There is something incredible about sunrises and I think making a resolution like that is so cool.
There were some nice colors in the sky this morning. I had already taken some shots early on when I saw this cluster of clouds moving in. I had a feeling these clouds would soon light up, but I got even more than I bargained for when these sunrays burst across the sky like giant outstretched fingers. Once again, the wait paid off. There were a lot of people taking pictures of the sunrise this morning and it is easy to understand why. Also, don't forget I've been guest posting some unreleased photos on @njspots yesterday and today so be sure to check it out. #capturethesunrise #sunrise #goodmorning #risebeforedawn #morningroutine #firstlight #morning #dawn #sky #picoftheday #photooftheday #instagood #instamood #nyc #skyline #nycskyline #hudson #hudsonriver #Hoboken #hobokennj #nj #sun #fireinthesky #iloveny #empirestatebuilding #nbc4ny #what_i_saw_in_nyc #sunrays #sunbeam

That's what I got. I'm probably scrolling through Instagram now as we start our journey back to Minnesota. Make sure to follow along to see our road trip pictures.

Who is your favorite Instagram account to follow? I need a few new ones to keep me occupied.


  1. I freaking love the idea of that sunrise account.

    I love following people who shoot a lot around Philadelphia. There are some great pro and amateur photogs out there.

    I also follow a few dog accounts of course.

  2. I'm a big fan of @dontsithome and @hobokengirlblog because they always post events or restaurants/places that are nearby. I really like that sunrise account, I'll have to check it out.


Thanks for reading my ramblings. It makes my heart happy.
