Tired of your Instagram feed? These 7 accounts will instantly bring you joy

If your Insta-feed is getting you down during what is already a stressful time, do a clear out. Forget the followers who will (unintentionally or not) make you feel extra tense and go for cute dogs who are selfie stars or any of these seven accounts that will absolutely up your happiness factor


@trotterpup is a dog who wears many hats.

Just. Look. At. Him. This French Bulldog isn’t afraid of a selfie either, and that hat collection is fire.

@notes2myselfie is both funny and scarily real.

Hilarious one-liners, relatable thoughts and dry humour = the perfect antidote to life (just generally).

@cashcats are (quite literally) cats with cash.

They will always have more money and cool stuff then you but you can’t hate on them because they are cats. Fluffy cats who will never know the value of all that dosh.

@thecartorialist has many quirky Illustrations of fashion and beauty’s biggest pop culture moments.

It’s basically a series of delightful doodles and snapshots that are beautiful to look at. You can even look at them without envy because, you know, they are just drawings.

@yoyoha has many images of cartoons drawn on coffee cups.

Yet for some reason we continue to do it anyway. #100coffeecups

A post shared by Josh Hara (@yoyoha) on


Witty cartoons on a coffee cup, could this be the best kind of pick-me-up of a Sunday? Dare you to bring a picture into Starbucks and insist they draw one instead of misspelling your name.

@fashion.in.film is the throwback fashion account we need.


…If only to be reminded of a simpler time when all this was way cooler than crocs or sliders *shudder*.

@leesamantha tells stories with food (and it’s glorious).

Darth Vader! #leesamantha #starwars

A mother of two, she began making bento art so her first daughter would eat after her second was born. Amazing stuff.
