Fresh Instagram Follows
4 years ago / in Bliss
Sometimes your Instagram needs a little spring cleaning. From blurry photos to multiple posts a day, there are some accounts that, with a closer look, you start to wonder why you started following in the first place. My Instagram feed is something I look to often for inspiration, from what to blog about to what to make for dinner that night. Therefore, I’m always giving it a refresh & I’m always on the lookout for the new accounts to follow. So, I thought I would share some of my favourite accounts & some new ones that I have recently followed.
Wally Found is for anyone who loves travel & that striped guy we used to spend hours trying to find. With sharp photography featuring a faceless Waldo in dream-like landscapes, @Wallyfound feeds my travel bug & my inner kid.
On @Mydaywithleo, paper dolls come to life. Although the faces are obviously cutouts, the photos & stop-motion videos never fail to entertain.
people ask me lots how i make these so i thought id repost one of my favs and talk a lil about the process. my videos usually take 6 to 12 hours to make. altho im gettin faster. my first one took me a week. it starts with collectin lots of images from magazines and old books and the internet and cutting em out. for this one i took extra long because lookin fer pics and cutting out pics of young will smith is a good time i think. i usually like to have at least 10 expressions before im ready to shoot. sometimes i go in with about 20 just to be extra ready. for the final version of this video i used 9 different lil cutouts. then i have to find a spot and someone to dance for me. this is @little_mouse_diuguid and she's a good friend with killer moves and sweet style and prob woulda given me a death glare if i let anyone else be the fresh prince. plus she's pretty rad to be around so i decided she was the best person for the job. im kinda private about the shooting process and what equipment i use but it takes about an hour or two to get the footage i need for these lil videos. i could do it faster and sloppier but you guys deserve only the best so i try to get more footage than ill need. after that it's off to the editing room. this is the process where i'm gettin a lot faster as i feel more comfy with my decisions the more i do. id never edited anything before these so it took me a long time to figure it out. between editing and gettin the right song usually takes another hour or five. then once im done i usually send a copy to the dancer for them to approve and post a snippet to my snapchat since people love teasers. then… its back to insta to share with all you fine people. so that's how MDWLlilmovies are made.
Okay, so Marnie is pretty popular, but seeing that tongue & doggy swag never fails to make me laugh.
Well, it’s no secret that I love food. I follow more than the recommended dose of food-based accounts, but @spoonforkbacon is my latest find. I had to stop writing half-way through this post & make myself something because my stomach knows a good food-gram when it sees one.

So this is maybe one of the most relateable accounts I have found to date. @Quarterlifepoetry is a 26 year-old taking on the adult world one poem at a time. I’m not sure my advanced poetry professor would have loved my work if I produced poems in this style or on the topic of food babies, but I can appreciate it as a 20-something on Instagram.
