for this “exploring womanhood” month, I’m gonna share my favorite women to follow on instagram and a sentence or two on why I do.. maybe you’ll find someone new to follow too.
And let me know your favourites and why on instagram and in the comments below!
let’s celebrate each other! let’s celebrate women!
@spirituallysexy - a private group for women exploring their feminine sides and sexuality by Christa Black Gifford. she is one of THE most raw and brutally honest women I’ve ever come across. I don’t think there is any taboos left she haven’t talked about. get ready to step out of your comfortzone. it’s so freeing!
@morgandaycecil - a women’s coach on the road to feminine wholeness. she’s a tender lioness. roaring her truth. daring to be. doesn’t make excuses. blooming. and expecting you to do the same.
@theslumflower - a woman teaching us, that we don’t need to be pretty to be worthy. that saggy boobs is okay. no need to look like the girls portrayed in the media to be worthy. and she’s speaking up about the nonsense women are taught in this world.
@arielleestoria - one of my favorite artists on instagram, she’s a spoken words artist that speaks right. to. your. soul. + she makes live dance videos in her car every friday while sharing her heart. beautiful woman inside out! one day I’m gonna sit down and have coffee with her!
@bethanyfolkmusic - this woman speaks to me on so. many. levels. things I didn’t even know inspired me. she’s one of my best instagram friends and I can’t wait to one day meet her in real life as well. she’s also a folk- and indie singer songwriter and have build (with her husband) her own harp.
@agirlnamedleney - she lives a life that can’t be measured. her successes aren’t the “mainstream” ones, they’re hers.. and she’s living her best intentional life. people who chose to not follow the mainstream, culture and traditions just because, but stops up and asks why and THEN make their own stream, culture and traditions; always inspires me. I can’t get enough of her words and photography.
@kay_ska - a self love coach. she’s real and raw and she chooses JOY after many years without joy. her account feels bright on a dark day with her wild danceparties and encouraging words, she speaks truth.
@charlgambill - one of my heroes. heard her speak for the first time when I was 15 and I’ve been following her since. she lives a crazy life, travels a lot, have a beautiful family and dare to dream bigger and bigger for each day and runs 5 miles every morning. she always inspires me to push my comfortzone.
@allisonkimmey - is intentional about how she speaks about her body to raise her kids not to hate or compare their bodies, but to be confident in who they are, whether muscle-y or with more fat. she’s the woman who started #glitterstripes.
@bodyposipanda - pink & purple hair, lots of unicorns and body-love SASS. this woman is a force that has taken instagram by storm. she she’s an eating-disorder-surviver now calling out all the stuff that media tells you to keep buying their diet-products that doesn’t work anyway.
@danasuchow - educates the world, teachers, doctors, dieticians, girls, boys.. how dangerous diet culture is. she speaks up. she speaks truth. she does her research. and it. is. good.
@torikelly - she’s got a beautiful strong voice, she doesn’t sing like the mainstream, she sings songs that matters. she sings her heart. she is relatable.
@tollydollyposh - a young woman, but a big advocate for slow fashion. she educates about slow & ethical vs fast fashion and makes the best fashion GIFs to take care of the world.
@_clairebaker_ - has taught me almost everything I know about my cycle. she taught me to be friends with it and how to work WITH it and not AGAINST it. I’m excited to explore and learn about my cycle.
@mamalinauk - she lives and preaches about a #plasticfree and #zerowaste life and show us how she does it with her two adorable sons. she was even on BBC. I’m learning all the greatest tips!
@swaglen - she’s an autumnal soul (like myself) has the funniest and most adorable cats Milo & Melvin. she has the longest most beautiful red hair and she’s an advocate for mental and physical health. she has a platform and she uses it for good. and she’s norwegian!
@joannawaterfall - the woman behind yellow & co a membership & conference to support women who have brands and small businesses that do good in this world. she’s one of the most inspirational entrepreneurs out there!
@leonorachristinaskov - for the danes. a woman and author who grew up with a narcissistic mother and wrote a novel about her life that took Denmark by storm.
@mitkrearum - a creative woman like I’ve rarely seen in my life. she’s even danish. I love her creativity and I’m inspired by her every photo she posts.
@sheisidentified - a mother-daughter duo speaking against abuse. I’m so blessed to call these two amazing and strong warriors my friends. there is power and truth in their posts. she is identified - a movement to watch out for!
@morganharpernichols - you probably know her for her deeply encouraging words that speaks directly to your heart. if you didn’t.. now you do.
@abistumvoll - when she got married, she and her husband went on the road to learn about love it was the hardest healing process of their lives, but what they learned in that process is changing human hearts and lives. she goes under the #preacherinhighheals
@pennywincer - one of the strongest women and moms I know of. I admire her, and I don’t even have kids yet. she’s also a single-mom, but that doesn’t stop her from living her life, yet she’s being honest about the struggles she experiences as a single-mom with a kid with autism. if you’re a mom, you will be encouraged by her words and smile at her photography. and if you’re not yet, like me, you’ll be inspired too!
@lostandfoundhome - she and her little family lives on less squarefeet than what’s consideres “normal”, but they make it work and they love it. she inspires me to live with less space inside vs more space outside. she’s also a mom to a cute little toddler. sidenote: I was so inspired by her little farmhouse that I (with her house in my mind) tried to create a small farmhouse on Sims4 that I dream to live in one day, she doesn’t know yet!)
@keeley.rees - she has one of the most sparkly, bright and dreamy feeds I know. she is so tender, yet strong and has a story that has POWER in it. she is a beautiful instagram friend from the other side of the world and I’m always in awe of the magic she manages to create in her universe.
@akianeart - I don’t think I exaggerate when I say she’s probably one of the best artists in the whole world. if you think I’m joking.. just check her out. she paints so realistic, yet like it’s from another world. let me rephrase: it is from another world.
@me_and_orla - not only is she the instagram queen, the wisest and most knowledgable instagrammer about instagram. even instagram thought she knew enough to give her a blue tick. but not only does she know a lot, she is also very likeable and relatable. if you have any concerns or questions about instagram, she has already answered it or is doing research when you sleep.
@itscarolaber - she a yellow force of positivity, curiosity, joy, smiles and more yellow. I’m so happy to call her a friend on instagram. she’s a constant supporter and encourager and she makes instagram a happier, brighter and more yellow place to be.
@roriemusic - a singer-songwriter that makes music that inspires. i love to get sneak peaks of her mind. her voice is crystal clear. her soul is wise. I’m inspired every time I read her words. and her interview her on the blog is one that still lingers in the back of my head. and also: she’s one I can call an instagram friend. sidenote: I currently listen to her music while I write.
I think that’s about it.. I’ll probably have to add to this list as amazing woman keep showing up in my feed, but this is all for now.
