I breathe Instagram.
If it was my choice, I’d ban and move to the trash any other social media networks that make me lose so much time daily but this one. For sure, Instagram would be my wild card, a keeper. I mean, let’s be honest, it is the most beautifully layered app at the moment, and chances are that if you are reading these lines you too have a deep love for it. Sure you can find a lot of shit on Instagram as well, but we are only showcasing the very best here today so fear not, everyone in here has been carefully hand-picked, after a long but not painful process of checking every account we follow looking for awesomeness.
I can easily spend one hour or more on Instagram everyday getting my eye candy fix, finding new killer accounts, interacting with other members and figuring it all out. And I would not count this precious time as lost at all. A cool visual goes the long way for me and thanks to this social network, I have been able to meet so many cool people that has the same kind of love for it as I do.
But enough of my own stuff, today I want to share with you the coolest Instagram accounts worth following IMO. The ones that make me stop scrolling down. Those that have proven to be something unique, coherent, fresh, full of creativity and ultimately, authentic.
The upcoming list isn’t intended to reach a pretty number and it will be always ready for as many amendments and additions as they are needed as long as this blog is alive and the App keeps on being the excellent platform it is today. So do let me know in the comments below which accounts are worth following as well and I will have a look. If they are truly something, they will be added as well. Easy.
Let the party begin!
