Friday Favorites; Instagram Obsessions

Those who know me, know that I struggle to tear myself away from a good Insta-sesh. It's definitely my favorite social media channel and I love getting a little window into the lives of those around me, and not around me! For that very reason, I've rounded up some of my current favorite IG accounts for serious inspiration, delicious eats and drinks, and all around covet-worthy lifestyles. So, in no particular order, here they are!

 

1. Brightest Young Things @brightestyoungthings

Easily my favorite account with a DC focus, everything about their content makes my day. Colorful photos, puppies and just the right amount of sass in their captions. #BYT is always good for a pick me up on a crummy day or ideas about how to spend your weekend. They're more often than not a "re-post account", curating awesome content from all over the inter-webs; so if you use their hashtag, you may even see your own pics up on their feed! They're also involved in some of the biggest, baddest events produced in the District and beyond. For real, if you don't follow them, check them out ASAP. 

2. Mavenly + CO. @mavenlyco

If you are a female entrepreneur, or just someone looking for daily inspo, look no further than Mavenly + Co. These femme-bosses not only curate an amazing IG page, filled with girls seemingly having the time of their lives, inspirational (and super down to earth) quotes and lots of pink. These mavens also host a series of professional development workshops all over the country; me and my bestie are actually heading to their retreat in Florida in April- eek! 

3. Caffeinate The Capital @caffeinatethecapital

This account focuses on easily one of my top five favorite things (did you see last week's Friday Fave's post?); COFFEE. This account gathers the best of the best; the most gorgeous lattes, the comfiest cafe corners... it only fuels my obsession! If you're a caffeine addict like me, start following them asap- you can even try snapping shots of your morning joe, and use their hashtag for the chance at a feature! 

4. Lust Local DC @misslustlocal

This account became a fave of mine once I discovered the hashtag #lustlocaldc. It's an awesome collection of things people love about the District- basically a locals love fest, which is fitting in a city with so much pride. I love the mix of content from the creator (Diana, who's also 1/2 of  @greenheartjuiceshop), and then her reposts of her favorite shots using the hashtag. Give it a follow for some serious local inspiration! 

5. Lucky To Live In DC @luckytoliveinDC

Another account I stumbled upon due to a hashtag- this account is similar to #lustlocal in that it focuses on the District and all the things that make it special. It reposts pictures using the hashtag #luckytoliveinDC and the creator has curated a really wonderful feed. Highly recommended if you're a bit obsessed with the District, and with the solid photog skills of it's contributors. Also, shameless plug, that donut photo is mine from @itsmaryelizabeth :-)
