Our favourite Instagram accounts + how they inspire us


We don't want to jinx anything but is that Spring out there!?! It's been so refreshing to have constant sun shining through the shop and we certainly feel a lot better for having some greatly needed vitamin D - long may it continue!

On the blog this week we're sharing three of our favourite Instagram accounts and discussing how their feeds provide us with a daily dose of inspiration and spark our creativity. With Instagram's new algorithm update, it's more important than ever to interact with accounts you truly love, in order to see their images pop up on your feed often.

As a business we utilise a number of social platforms - Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest & Twitter to communicate the daily pursuits of team Hero; keep you up to date with fresh stock and share awareness of our in-store events, amongst other things.


We don’t know about you but we are Instagram fanatics! It is our favourite social platform because it offers an easy and enjoyable way to connect with likeminded people across the world. Not only does it provide escapism, it allows your imagination to run wild with fresh, creative ideas for the home, supper, places to visit, travel destinations and fashion, to name a few.

"Life is all about creating stories; making memories, surviving struggles and filling the soul with whatever makes you happy".



Instagram is a brilliant outlet to document the everyday with images that sum up moments, and captions that express the mood, whilst allowing individuals; bloggers, shops, destinations and businesses to connect, engage and interact with one another.

Unsurprisingly, it’s currently the premiere social media network and we totally get why - what is there not to love about sharing everyday imagery with one another?! It’s invigorating to put yourself out there, comment on a stranger’s image and connect through an online community. You can even turn strangers in to friends, customers or collaborators through interacting first on Instagram. 

Today we are sharing three of our favourite Instagram accounts with you - be prepared for some serious insta LOVE!
