Exploring The Hydrostone + Current Favourite Instagram Accounts to Follow


To take full advantage of the sunny April weather, my roommate and I decided to make the most out of Monday and head down to The Hydrostone to do some exploring. I love The Hydrostone; the little local shops are quaint and carry lots of Maritime-made products.



We discovered a really cute little jewelry and crystal shop called Earth Goddess. While I don’t know much about crystals, I enjoy learning what they mean to other people and what each crystal symbolizes. The jewelry was absolutely beautiful; the owner said she was currently in the process of bringing out new, handmade bracelets so I want to go back to check those out!


The owner asked if we followed the shop on Instagram and gave me her card. The Instagram account is really cute and got me thinking about the other Instagram accounts I have been loving to follow recently. Here are 5 Instagram accounts to follow if you love bright photos, food, lifestyle, makeup, fashion and… puppies!

If you love foodie photography, @plantbasedbirdie’s account is for you. I have a minor obsession with following vegan food accounts because they give me inspiration to eat healthier! I like this account in particular because she always incorporates lots of colours and fun new recipe ideas.

Okay, seriously though… how can you not instantly fall in love with this account?? If you are familiar with Humans of New York, this Instagram account has a similar spin to that. They photograph thousands of dogs around New York and oh my, are they adorable! They always include the age of the dog and a short quote from the owner about the dog’s personality!

I love to follow Morgan’s yoga account because she does amazing acro-yoga with her boyfriend, @keoniology. Her account gives me major motivation to keep working on my own yoga practice! I also love to watch her Instagram stories because her pets are the cutest and she does cute, mini lessons every so often.

Yeah… another food account. I love food inspiration! Lisa is a dietitian who posts all kinds of food photos, exercise videos and just beautiful photography, plain and simple. I mean, look at that photo of the Unicorn Frappuccino! (which of course, I had to try and it was delicious). I like Lisa because she keeps it real; so many people complained about the sugar content in the Unicorn Frappe but Lisa (a dietitian) was honest and admitted that the sugar drink was delicious and its worth the sugar content to try. I have found other food accounts only post super healthy food and never show the cheat days. I appreciate the cheat days.

I’ve been watching Desi on YouTube for years now, but I have been loving her Instagram account lately. She posts amazing fashion photos and makeup inspiration. I love her personality and her relationship with her husband Steven and fellow YouTuber and best friend Katy (@lustrelux). I lived vicariously through her Coachella photos all week! She slays like no other.

What Instagram accounts have you been obsessed with lately? Let me know in the comments!
