I've been using Instagram for a long time now... Since 2011 I believe! But it's only in the last two years that it's really become an important part of my life. That sounds a bit deep, but I committed myself to growing Atlas' Instagram following significantly two years ago, and thankfully for me, it worked. As a result, I'm a bit of an Insta-addict. I follow a lot of accounts! If you're anything like me, you love to see who other people follow and find out who they recommend you should follow as well. So here is a list of my favourite people to follow on Instagram.
Katie Thompson: A young fashion photographer who's work we've featured on Atlas, I also follow her on my personal account, because her work is absolutely stunning! If you want to be inspired by beautiful imagery, I'd follow Katie.
Haarkon: Haarkon is an account run by India Hobson, another photographer who I admire a lot, and her boyfriend. These two are more obsessed with plants than I am, and they fuel my obsession even further!
Today we're spending the day looking after these guys, and then we'll have another plant family portrait. #Haarkon #HaarkonHouse #plantgang #urbanjungle #plants #houseplants #indoorplants #houseplantsofinstagram #interiorgoals #plantgoals #plantstagram #instaplant #plantportrait #interiorrewilding #monstera #cacti #succulents #growsomethinggreen #cactus #greenhouse #greenliving #greenfingers #botanical #natureinthehome #botanicalstyle #interior #homestyle #urbanjunglebloggers #myplantfamily #planthoarder

Jose Villa: Here's one for all you wedding photography fanatics! A world still so new to me, I stumbled upon Jose's work a few months ago whilst doing some research, and I fell in love. Turns out he's pretty damn famous, but that doesn't mean I can't love his work any less!
John Bozinov: We interviewed John for Atlas quite a while back now, and ever since I discovered his work, I've been in love. John travels all around the world capturing images of the natural environment. At the moment he is in the Antarctic until the end of August, and following his journey shows me snippets of a world that I'll probably never get to see for myself. It's fascinating and his eye is amazing. Better yet, it's all for a good cause.

Lizzy Gadd: Oh my goodness, Lizzy's images are the stuff of dreams. Every time I see anything she posts, I'm overcome by a desperate urge to run off into a forest somewhere and play with a camera till my heart is content. Lizzy's work takes you an a wild adventure each time. I really can't recommend her work enough!
Spending this quiet rainy Saturday listening to magical tunes, drinking too much coffee and catching up on edits from the last couple weeks. :) Meanwhile thought I'd re-post my favourite image from over the winter before releasing the rest of my new work... For the first time I can remember, I don't think I'm quite ready to let the winter weather go yet. 💛
Alex Centomo: One for the fashion blogging lovers, Alex Centomo is #goals (yes, I just said that). I tend to lust over her hair tutorials and hair images most, because we already know how obsessed I am with long hair! I regularly check Alex's Instagram or YouTube channel out if I want to do something cool with my hair!

Nicholas White: Nick and I actually worked together for a couple of weeks a while back, and bonded over our love of imagery, and hate for retouching! Nick is based in Devon, and works as a landscape photographer. His work is absolutely beautiful, and I love that he produces so much of his imagery within the south west of the UK; it just goes to show how beautiful an area we live in!

Rosie Hardy: Throwback to 15 year old Olivia, but I've been following Rosie since the start of my Flickr days. I've never met her, and I don't think she knows who I am, but I feel like I know her just because of the amount of time I've been following her, and loving her work. Rosie just started up another 365 project (taking a photo a day for a year) and at only 20 days in, I'm already being inspired day to day. I genuinely look forward to seeing what she's produced each day! It feels like a little present to her audience.

Zanna Van Dijk: My ultimate girl crush. Zanna is the most beautiful, positive and empowering fitness person that I follow on Instagram (and all social media really). She's clearly a gazelle (I think she's like 6 foot 2) but she's so honest with her audience all the time that I really feel like I can relate to her. I also have never met Zanna before, but I know for a fact that if I saw her, I'd walk up and give her a massive hug for making me feel happy about being myself!
That post @f45londonbridge sweaty selfie 😅 I just want to share this awesome @activeinstyle outfit I bought the other day which is head to toe @lurvsportswear 😍👌🏼 Anyways I'm just about to head into my final f45 class of this #challengezanna week, which makes me sad! I wish I could go every day of every week but I just don't live close enough! It has been an awesome 6 days though and I'll be doing a full write up on the blog of my experience. F45 is actually an Australian class so when I get out to Aus in early July I'll be going to it ALL THE TIME! #theaddictionisreal 😂🙈 If you're based in London then get your ass to the class and I promise you'll love it! 💪🏼 #girlgains #activeinstyle #f45 #london #fitness #fitspo #fitfam #ukfitfam #training #workout #gymgirls #fitfashion
Liv Purvis: We share the same name, but how I wish we shared the same wardrobe. Liv's blog is one of my favourite (and I mentioned it here!) but I also adore her Instagram which is a place of pretty streets, outfit inspiration and general happy feelings.

These are only 10 of my favourites, and it was so hard to choose! I have so many more accounts that I could recommend, so please let me know if you'd like to see more posts like this, as they're fun to put together, and I like giving shout outs to other awesome people who I think are doing awesome things on the internet. If you can't wait for another post though, why not head over to my Instagram account and just click on my following list and have a browse?! (Shameless plug...)
I hope you've all had a wonderful weekend, and are ready to take on the week!
