I love Instagram (most of the time) and it’s the social media platform I’ve focused most of my energy on for the last year. I’ve written before about how I use Instagram for microblogging, although I haven’t been posting quite as regularly of late. I’m even embracing Instagram stories when I remember!
Anyway, today isn’t about me, rather I’m going to share 10 Instagram accounts that I love to follow, and that I think you should too!
Amber and Kirsty are the parents of not one, but two sets of adorable twins! I am completely in awe of how they cope with four children under three – I find it hard enough with two! And not only do they have four gorgeous children, Amber takes the most incredible pictures of them too.
Well that wasn't so bad – was it? Poobum Mcbitey slept in for the first time ever this morning and didn't wake the other three, consequently we enjoyed an actual LIE-IN. This morning I feel like a brand new woman. Today we're pootling about this morning – I absolutely must do some filming – and then this afternoon we're off to a third birthday party for the big two at my mum's house; the boys are bouncing from wall to wall, they're so excited to see everybody, and are threatening to sleep over there! Might bring them a couple of pairs of pyjamas just in case… 😉 😂 Can't quite believe that these two will be THREE tomorrow! What are you up to, today? #freerangekids #dresskids_likekids #thehappynow #rememberingthesedays #twosetsoftwins #lovelifeoutside #lifecloseup #worldoflittles #happylittlebuttons #letthembelittle #littlestoriesofmylife #momentslikethese #celebrate_childhood #multiplemultiples #theirwonderfulworld #myhappycapture #developinglife #pixel_kids #littlefierceones #oureverydaymoments #thebestineveryday #perfectandproud #clickinmoms #simplychildren #mycolourfulkids #illuminatechildhood #childhoodunplugged #runwildmychild #siblingstyle
I’ve already mentioned Hannah’s blog in my post on Family Blogs I love, but I couldn’t leave her out of my Instagram round up. Hannah is an award winning photographer and it’s not hard to see why.
• F R I D A Y • Woohoo 🙌🏻 Friday is here! And 3.30pm sees the start of our half term (finally!) 💕 We have so many fun plans next week – I can't wait to have Bea home with us 😍! Henry and I made these awesome monster cupcakes yesterday to celebrate the start of half term (and because a day without cake is a day wasted 🍰). The recipe is up on the blog today (link in Instagram Stories) 👍🏻 They are #dairyfree and #soyafree too 🙌🏻 Have a wonderful Friday everyone 💕 #halloweensnacks #halloween2017 #abmhalloween
As well as The Lifestyle Log Hannah is also the woman behind the fab blog Budding Smiles, and a wonderful online children’s and baby store called Apples & Pips. On top of managing her blog and shop, and looking after her two beautiful children, Hannah also manages to hold down a full time job! The Lifestyle Log is all about rediscovering the ‘me’ behind the mum, and I love how honest and down to earth Hannah’s posts always are.
I’ve been following Corinne’s account for ages now – her son Frank was due on the same day as Gabe, and ended up being born on the same day too. Corinne is mum to five boys, and has recently had a little girl too. Her family are all just so adorable and I love keeping up with their adventures on Instagram.
Bex has four children and not only are they cute but they all wear fabulous clothes too! I love her photographs, and following their every day lives on Insta Stories too.
We have come away to @portlympnepark with @panasonickitchen for the night to stay in Bear Lodge (hence the bear themed @tootsamacginty tops). It is the most amazing place and we have a stunning view from our 'tent' (have a look at my stories to see more of it). We have had fresh food cooked for us by @thenakednutritionist and we are looking forward to toasting marshmallows around the fire later! #experiencefresh #ad
Laura is a mum of five children and she posts such wonderful pictures of them. I love to see the matching outfits that her two daughters wear, although they don’t always look like this…
Tonight was the girls Halloween party at school and as you can see, they couldn't have been happier about it!! 🤣When we got there Megan did join in where as Eva stayed glued to my side and just looked so desperately sad the whole time. It breaks my heart that she is missing out on all the fun but her nerves always get the better of her. 😢Still, when it comes to zombie brides they don't get any more beautiful than this. 😍 #YouTrickWeTreat
Alex is not only mum to Lamb and Bear (who are similar ages to Toby and Gabe) but she is also the designer of some of our favourite leggings!
What a lovely day! ☀️ Silly mummy dressed for winter ❄️ and I was sweating! But, who doesn't love a bobble hat?! We went pumpkin 🎃 picking and bought some amazingly unusual pumpkins. Not sure hubby wanted to spend £25 but he boys had a good day! • • • • • #acupofmotherhood #amomentinmotherhood #beinthepicture #bestofmom #developinglife #documentyourdays #eternalmotherhood #familyblog #honestmotherhood #happymum #joyfulmamas #lionessmama #letthembewild #lifecloseup #mamahood #mamaloves #momentsnotposes #noordinarykids #ohmamamoment #ohheymama #rememberingthesedays #reallifeparenting #survivingmotherhood #themeinmummy #wildandfreekids #dearphotographer #dearestviewfinder #mumofboys #momlifeisthebestlife #autumnfashion
Abbie is a mum of two, and she also has a more personal account at Archer Lily Adventures. I just love the pictures she posts on Our Enchanted Wood though, especially the recent autumnal ones.
Mummy Daddy Me
I think Katie’s Instagram account was one of the first ones that I followed. She always posts beautiful photographs and has this amazing knack for always capturing the perfect golden light.
Sally is the founder of Tots100 but that’s not why you should follow her on Instagram – you should follow her to watch her Stories and see the many ways she tries to embarrass her 12 year old daughter Flea when she drops her off at school every day!
We have had a fabulous week in Florida and I think this is a lovely time to visit – not too hot and not too busy. It’s been lovely for Flea to have such fab quality time with her grandparents, and for them to enjoy some things they never expected to find themselves doing! So many laughs and happy memories 😍🎢 #review #visitorlando #familytravel
And that’s it from me. Of course I’d love it if you followed my Instagram account too!
Have I mentioned any of your favourites here? I’m always looking for new accounts to follow so I’d love it if you could leave me your recommendations in the comments.
