instagram pages you should be following

1. Samantha hillman (@_samhillman)

in case you can't tell by this screenshot from her feed, I have been  living  for Samantha's photos as of late. I absolutely love her unique style of shooting food photography, from  playing around with shadows  to making the  seemingly mundane of moments  oh-so-interesting. whether or not you're a foodie, I highly recommend you give her a follow, just for the fact that her feed is oh-so-easy on the eyes. (also, check out her  blog .)

2. Vicky grout (@vickygrout)

I found Vicky's work while midnight scrolling through Pinterest a few months back. a few (well, quite a few) pins later, I was hooked on her work. Vicky shoots predominantly film, and specializes in portraiture, music, and street photography. I love the rawness of each photo—like you can step into each photo and feel the mood of what has been captured. oh, and Vicky herself is the absolute coolest. please check out her  work  & drop her a  follow .

3. Tora north (@toranorth)

tora embodies all things cool & effortless in the fashion community. honestly, her photos speak for themselves—she makes comfort & cool fit hand-in-hand. I also love that she is a swede living in Hong Kong, bringing two totally different cultures together. following a girl who styles menswear so well inspires me daily—why is mens clothing made with twice the comfort & cool? btw, she's also an author for  hypebae . yup, she really is the coolest. (how many times can I drop the word 'cool'?)

4. gel cream (@gelcream)

honestly, if you haven't heard of gelcream, I'm going to be blunt with you— your instagram has been lacking.  yana curates one of the most pleasing feeds with truly helpful reviews of products ranging from beauty, to skin, etc. I don't give a doubt towards any of her reviews, as she clearly states her "no ads, no sponsored content" policy in her bio—what a change from insta these days. gelcream is the perfect mixture of photography & beauty things. follow for your eyes to be pleased.

5. melody hansen (@themelodyh)

melody creates some of the most unique art these days. if I ever stumble upon her work on Pinterest, I can easily distinguish it and say, "hey it's a melody Hansen piece!" melody's color palette ranges from many a pastel, to vibrant hues of yellows—she makes me love color rather than sticking to my usual b&w. not only does she create beautiful illustrations, but she also writes beautiful words. seemingly simple, her minimal quotes really hit home for me—they're so relatable. check out more of her work on her website,  here .

tbh, if you didn't see this coming,  well then, idk.  but this post would be incomplete without mentioning my guy. major props to another one of my favorite photographers, queen  Hélène pambrun  for capturing harry's tour so impeccably. every single photo from this tour is filled with so much emotion, my heart quite literally jumps seeing such beautiful artistry featuring such a beautiful king. harry is currently on hiatus (ha) but I know that there will be a continuation of quality content coming in soon. i'm ever so grateful for his  goodbye post , though. kissy.
