My Favourite Instagram Influencers: The Girlboss Edition

Boy am I a lover of instagram! This social media platform is probably the one I spend most of my time on for inspiration and motivation within my own business. I love nothing more than following gorgeous accounts and seeing businesses evolve and share their day-to-day through their grids.

I also LOVE to see women in business building their empires via social media so today I am sharing my favourite girlboss instagram accounts whose feeds I most admire and love to follow – you might love them too…

I ADORE Jasmine Dowling’s work and her feed is one I find myself on for inspo a lot! Jasmine is a blogger and creative who makes the most beautiful prints and hand lettering. You’ve more than likely seen her work across your own instagram feed or in collaborations with stores and businesses like Love Ludie candles, David Jones and Migoals – seriously, this chick is amazing!

Of course I am drawn to her feed firstly because it features my fave signature colour blush (STUNNING) but her feed is more than just girly pictures – she shares awesome behind-the-scenes photos from her styling shoots, personal design projects and her day-to-day. A total must follow for seriously pretty creative inspiration.

I adore this gal. I first came across Jenna in an online Facebook business group for female entrepreneurs that we were both members of (you can read my post about my fave FB groups for business right here). Jenna is an amazing girlboss who works with female entrepreneurs as a money and mindset mentor. Her instagram feed is always so beautiful featuring lots of feminine inspiration and motivational quotes.

I couldn’t put this list together without sharing an account about shopping! No doubt you’ve already come across the I Heart Bargains account if you’re a savvy shopper and if not, girl this will be a treat for you! Chelsea Thomas is the face behind I Heart Bargains – an instagram account and blog sharing the best fashion and lifestyle products available in Australia – and here’s the best bit, everything is under $100! WINNING.

I find myself checking in on this account regularly to see the latest savvy buys recommended by Chelsea. Her style is fab and her hair cut is seriously my #hairgoals. lol

These chicks have the funnest grid! It’s colourful and lively and I always get some sort of inspiration to DIY from their posts. The pair are sisters and lifestyle bloggers from the US who, according to their website, hope to create ‘happiness through a homemade lifestyle.’ The ladies have also founded two iPhone apps for photography (one of which I’ve mentioned in this post here), written a couple of books and started their own product line. If any chicks deserve the title of #girlboss, it’s these two!
