We at Social Studio Shop are in a deeply committed relationship with Instagram. While we don’t like to play favorites, we certainly hold a special place in our heart for the photo-sharing app. We’ve connected with so many amazing boss babes, clients, and friends through Instagram that it makes it hard to believe we haven’t actually met so many of them in “real life”! The community that Instagram builds is a unique one like no other which is why we wanted to share with you a handful of our favorite accounts we follow for girl boss inspo.
That time when you sent out a newsletter without the freebie download link, one of the post links isn't working, and one of the images is incorrect. WHOOPS! Thank goodness for lovely subscribers who notified us! ☺️ We've got them all fixed and resent along with the sweet freebie. 🎉 Wonder what it is? 👉 Download here bit.ly/bcfreebieapr
Natalie, the creative brain behind the floral design company Native Poppy is a serious girl boss. Not only is she curating amazing florals for weddings + events around San Diego, but she just opened up her first storefront at the equally amazing Communal Coffee! Coffee + flowers? That’s the ultimate inspiration right there! We love following along with her boss babe journey as she grows as an entrepreneur (and the flowers don’t hurt to look at either!).
What are you currently working towards and how will you know when you've "made it" there? Is it being famous? Making a million dollars? Being a mother? The truth is: we will never fully arrive, we will always be on to the next thing, the bigger, the better. Our striving will never cease and we will keep up with this endless "hustle" and the glorification of busy. We will constantly continue to fill the voids, the empty spaces in our lives. Lately I've been celebrating presence over busy-ness. To me success looks like heartfelt conversations, chilled wine enjoyed, nights disconnected from the Internet, and afternoon naps. It's morning yoga, walks to the coffee shop, and sunshine on my face! Here's what I want you to know: today I am confirming, I have arrived. I have relinquished control and stepped into the fire. I have come out brighter, stronger, and more alive. It isn't a place, a milestone, an income, it's a state of mind! So what is it you're working towards today? What's on that goal list that you've been dying to cross off? 🙌🏻🎉🙋🏼
One of our favorite things about Jenna is her authenticity. She share a variety of content across her account, but everything she posts is full of transparency + honesty, which is rare in a world that can feel highly curated sometimes. Of course it helps that she’s a wonderful photographer + her feed is truly lovely!
Last week we tried the BEST new dessert & this week I'm still thinking about them so I blogged AND I'm doing a giveaway! Head to the link in my profile to check out these gourmet rice crispie treats from @blissandbaker. Word of advice: try the peanut butter and you'll take a crispie over a donut any day!!

Julia is a mama, stylist + shop owner in San Diego. She owns Gunn + Swain with her husband and is such a huge part of the San Diego creative scene. We love her feed because it’s such a personal look into her day-to-day, which looks way more fun than ours, TBH. When she’s not participating in events + shoots around Southern California, she’s also an amazing blogger. Keep an eye out for her in our upcoming blogger round up!

Now we may be a little biased here because Lane of Roses is actually a past consulting client of ours, but we love everything they are doing! Since launching they have taken their social media strategy to the next level and really implemented their core values into everything they do + post. One of our favorite things about their feed is how they are constantly highlighting community and bringing value to everything they share.
My mom used to say "show me your friends and I'll show you your future..." As a bratty teenager, I'd roll my eyes and pretend to ignore her. But those wise words have stuck with me and continued to guide my life. My relationships are such a foundation to the way I live and view the world. My friends have shaped my path, given voice to my dreams, and in so many ways been my cheerleaders. In this way- I honestly can say the best things I've done have been in collaboration, in partnership, with the intention to build and elevate people I believe in. Tomorrow night, if you're a free bird in LA, head over to @westelmsantamonica at 6 to join us in a conversation about collaboration hosted by @ltd365daily with some of my faves @citysage @wearetribeofdreamers and @rachelbrownart #collaborationiseverything #losangeles
As a food blogger + food stylist, Kara knows what it’s like to have to fight to have your voice stand out above a crowd. Not only does she create gorgeous content for her Instagram feed, but she extends that consistency to everything that she does. Her web design + weekly newsletter are one of our favorites! Plus we love how she’s always striving to bring women and communities together through food and drink!
Megan’s account is one of our favorite examples of a expertly branded Instagram. The consistency across her images + content are always on point and perfectly represent who she is as a brand. As a fashion blogger, first impressions are huge for gaining followers and driving traffic to your site and the way she’s curating content is doing just that!
Kelli is an illustrator + the designer behind Rylee & Cru, one of the most adorable kids clothing shops around. She’s another great example of a branded Instagram because her account tells a story about who she is as a mama and an entrepreneur, which often intertwine two very different stories, but hers is one cohesive brand. She gives a perfect balance of glimpses into her personal life and her business doings, which no doubt expands her reach to a larger audience!
We love so many Instagram accounts and there are so many inspirational babes out there it’s hard to choose just a select few! We’ll be sure to share more with you in the future as we continue to connect with new babes across the Instasphere. If you have any favorite accounts that inspire you, let us know in the comments so we can check them out!
