If you follow @nycismyboyfriend on Instagram, you might have noticed that I frequently repost photos from other users. I want to be able to post quality content on a frequent, regular basis, so it’s often easier to use someone else’s photo of a mimosa on Sunday morning than it is to shower, get dressed and actually go to brunch (nobody goes to brunch every week, FYI). Plus, I’m kind of busy and don’t always have time to run around taking scenic photos of NYC.
As I’ve been perusing Insta for great photos to have on hand for my posts, I’ve noticed that there are a lot of really amazing (and funny) accounts out there. Here are some of my all-time favorites.
If you have a serious case of wanderlust, follow @LucyLaucht.
Her photos are seriously stunning, and I always have to stop myself from re-posting every image she shares.
If you love food, follow @Food52.
Their dreamy, minimalistic approach to food photos makes for beautiful photos guaranteed to make your mouth water. Food52 also reposts a lot, so it’s a great way to find other accounts to follow.
If you love bright colors, follow @ABeautifulMess.
ABM is also an amazing site that has tons of craft ideas and recipes, but their Insta feed is an always-welcome pop of color.
If you love NYC, follow @AlyssaInTheCity.
This Refinery29 writer posts great photos of everything from rosé to retro cars, and (of course) beautiful images of New York.
If you need a laugh, follow @GirlWithNoJob.
There are tons of accounts that share memes and funny text posts (@FuckJerry is also great), but this one is always on point.
