Ahh, Instagram. For years now, it’s been my go-to for social media and quick entertainment. It’s a haven for brilliant photo editing and creative accounts that will make you say, “why didn’t I think of that!” By way of the Explore page, I’ve found some hands-down awesome accounts that I can’t help but follow. Here are five of my absolute favorite accounts, in no particular order. If you need these accounts in your feed, go ahead and click on the photos and to give them a follow yourselves!  

1. @SocalityBarbie

This account is brilliant. It’s a satirical spin on those accounts that are so-perfect-this-can’t-be-their-real-life, featuring a Barbie doll. Socality Barbie has all the cliche hipster shots down, paired with equally cliche captions and a smattering of hashtags.

“Folk Lyfe. Shout out to all the hunters out there making hip photos like this possible.” -@socalitybarbie

“Went for a walk in the woods this morning. Couldn’t resist the urge to put plant life in front of my face.” -@socalitybarbie

2. @Pechanga

The focal point of this account is a cat who climbs mountains. Literally. Her name is Millie, and since she was a kitten, her owner has taken her on adventures with him. She trains when she isn’t out in the wilderness, and even wears a tiny rock climbing rope and harness if the terrain is steep enough!

“Committing to the task.” -@pechanga

3. @RustyRodas

This is my absolute favorite #dogofinstagram. He is extremely photogenic, looks so ridiculously cute in human clothes, and is well-trained enough to balance cheeseburgers on his nose and donuts on his head. Enough said.

“Yep, this ’bout sums up my Wednesday…” -@rustyrodas

4. @FrancoisDourlen

This history teacher has mastered the art of perspective. With his iPhone, he recreates scenes from his favorite movies and TV shows using locations all over the world and a wide range of characters. It’s pretty genius.

5. @Unspirational

For all those days you can’t even handle another inspirational quote, you’ll be comforted and un-inspired by these snarky, hilarious quotes.
