by in Fashion on 16th May, 2016

I love my instagram feed, and these ladies make it extra special! Some I’ve been following (stalking) for ages and some are new to my feed – and they all spark my creative juices.

Instagram is much more than style snaps and outfit shots for me, I love the creativity and the fact I get to witness a portion of life through others eyes. So in no particular order here are my current creative faves.

1. @HijabiHybrid

On this feed you’ll find fleeky eyeliner, cute toddlers, and family stories through captivating imagery. Not to mention cheekbones for daysss! Not only is she great with a camera, on her blog she guides and answers questions of many muslimahs. Providing an invaluable service to her Ummah

2. @FattyPomPom

Not many people know this, but before I donned my Niqab, this feed was one of the ones that made me think “yes I can do this and be expressive/creative”! She’s mainly in black, but her feed is oh so colourful

One of my new finds, but a creative and stylish niqabi will always get a follow from me. She even was a niqabi bride – inspiration much?

An Adidas lover after my style heart… recently featured as one of my #OutfitCrushes (click here). This feed is overflowing with inspiration, not to mention her love for a good pair of trainers had me clicking the follow button super fast. I often find it difficult to style my trainers as I never used to believe in pairing skirts and trainers, but this feed has injected me with fresh hopes and ideas.

This feed is an explosion of colour and beautiful women! Showcasing different women of colour, this feed can’t help but scream ’empower’. I love the way she captures beauty, without adhering to eurocentric beauty standards. Her feed celebrates diversity and i’m a sucka for a good human rainbow 🙂
