You Should Be Following: Part 1

You Should Be Following: Part 1

Social media has become a pervasive part of our lives. It can sometimes feel like our days are drenched in likes and comments, our interactions mainly through a screen. Yet, social media can be an incomparable tool for positivity if used well in our daily lives: connecting us to far away friends, providing new perspectives on topical issues, and providing creative inspiration in the form of well-curated accounts. Keep reading to check out some of FLL’s favorite Instagram curators here.

A longtime FLL favorite, Sarah Wissinger’s account offers up food, decorating, party, and fun inspiration, wrapped up in an adorable package. Lancaster-native Wissinger and her longtime creative partner and boyfriend, Nick Malburg, run The Surznick Common Room together, a lifestyle blog about their lives in Pittsburgh. Get a daily dose of their aesthetically pleasing creativity and fresh ideas for living an awesome life on Instagram.

If you’re looking to add a little brightness to your life, check out fashion, food, and lifestyle blogger Lian Najarian’s account. FLL is consistently wowed by this Wyomissing-native’s amazing personal style, so look no further for a little #OOTD inspo. “My fashion blog, Freehanded Nonsense, serves as a creative outlet for me to express myself and what inspires me. It is full of color, life, and fun,” Najarian says. Filled with sunshine, motion, and good times, this account is a visual party in every post.

Combine the airiness of Stevie Nicks’ classic 70s style with the clean aesthetic of the many companies thriving in the Millenial market lately (think simple skincare and makeup company Glossier, or Quip, the company that somehow made electric toothbrushes seem sleek…heck, even Apple’s streamlined designs) and you’ll somehow end up with Brianna Wiest’s beautiful Instagram account. Wiest photographs Lancaster and her many travels with an eye open to the natural beauty in life, creating an inspiring sense of lightness in her photos.
