10 amazing Instagram accounts to follow for a hit of self-love and confidence
We know you’re a goddess, but do you? You should. Because YOU ARE!
And if you don’t, let us dig deep and ask you: what do your social media habits look like? Are they filled with unrealistic, filtered images that are unattainable and confidence-zapping?
The time you spend on social media (and we all know it's a little too much) can, and should, be curated to serve you, not leave you feeling anything less than phenomenal. If you follow accounts that bring your vibe down, hit that unfollow button and move on with your day. You don’t need that negativity in your life!
To help you curate a home feed that will lift you up to be the incredible woman you are, we’ve pulled together a list of 10 accounts worthy of your follow. Because you deserve to feel empowered. Every. Damn. Day.
The Open Invite
An open invite for self love and confidence through a sea of motivational quotes you’ll want to hit ‘share’ on. Our personal favourite: “Self care tip: Unfollow every account on Instagram that makes you feel like you need to be someone else.”. Our case in point exactly!
Coaching with Yaya
Confidence and mindset coach Yaya helps women entrepreneurs overcome self doubt. Whether you’re out there working for yourself or not, you’ll find empowerment in her posts, like this one on three ways to boost your self-esteem.
Of course, we’ve got to include ourselves in this list! We’re here to share insider tips on botanical skincare to help your skin glow and your confidence shine. Because we believe every woman should feel confident enough to walk out the door makeup free, and we’ve got just the ticket to get you there thanks to our wonder-ingredient: full spectrum CBD (which we rave about on our feed). Plus, you’ll regularly hear from our founder, Leslie, to give you reminders of how beautiful you are!
Hey Amber Rae
Best-selling author of Choose Wonder Over Worry, Amber Rae’s feed is a melting pot of positive energy. We love the unique hand drawn illustrations that compliment the uplifting messages, like this lovely reminder to enjoy the in between parts of personal growth.
The Confidence Corner
Founded by two friends on a mission to share body-positivity with the world, The Confidence Corner shares quotes, inspiring stories and unfiltered images to remind you that every woman, and every body, is sacred (and downright gorgeous). Need some affirmations to remind you? We love this post.
The Insecure Girls Club
Insecurities? Wear them on your sleeve! That’s the mantra from this account, a place to celebrate that we all have ‘flaws’, and we should be proud of them. Find encouragement to embrace your vulnerabilities, join in with live yoga classes and accept simple reminders to take a moment to just breathe.
Women of Illustration
What’s a list of inspiring accounts without art? Women of illustration brings together and showcases the beautiful, feminist artworks of women across the world. Brimming with self-care reminders and words of wisdom, this feed will remind you that “you’re doing better than you think”.
Can we ever have enough positive quotes? We don’t think so! This bright and colorful feed is filled with mantras and messages to inspire self-love and inner confidence. And if you want to take it a step further, they have female-empowering tees, too.
Recipes For Self Love
Last but by no means least on our list is Recipes For Self Love. A beautifully curated burst of color and simple, hard-hitting reminders mixed with creative illustration. Now also a hardback book, RFSL is just what you need for an inclusive, daily dose of empowerment. We especially love this post reminding you how wonderfully multidimensional you are.
There you have it, our favourite ways to feel more empowered when you scroll through your socials. Do you believe in your self-worth yet? We hope so! Remember, you have the power to curate what you see online. If the accounts you are following don’t make you feel good, it’s okay to unfollow them, promise.
While you’re here, if you’re ready to start embracing your natural beauty after these confidence-boosting accounts, here are some tips for going makeup free. Go on, you deserve the freedom, you beauty!
