follow friday: my favorite plant-based instagram accounts

Happy Friday! We made it! There really are weeks when it feels like Friday will never come – seeing as how I woke up Tuesday morning and immediately thought “it’s Friday!” only to realize it was definitely not Friday… I’d have to say it was one of those long weeks for me.

It’s been a while since I’ve shared some of my favorite Instagram accounts with y’all, so I wanted to list some of my recent faves! You might have seen my recent post about going flexitarian – changing your diet in such a big way can seem kind of intimidating, but it always helps to surround yourself with encouragement + support. That’s why I found some plant-based accounts to follow so I can stay motivated, encouraged, and inspired. Whether you’re flexitarian, plant-based, vegan, or not, all of these feeds are super fun, colorful, and were aesthetically pleasing, so you might find them fun to follow, too!

Hello my loves! I’ve had a lot of requests for routine-type posts, but truthfully I feel like it took me until the last few months to get a truly good routine going. I remember when I graduated college I thought it would be so easy to have a routine when it was the same schedule every day, no homework to come home to, or whatever the case might have been, but I found that finding my “adult” routine took a lot of trial and error. Also, with all my skincare changes between treating acne, Accutane, and now coming off Accutane, I haven’t been sticking with one particular routine for long, so I waned to make sure I found the skincare + beauty products that I knew I wanted to stick with before sharing. And I’m so excited because I have the opportunity to host another giveaway here on The Southern Sooner – so be sure to keep reading for details!

choosing confidence

hello wonderful readers! I’m sorry that I have been so silent lately. as I have mentioned in some blog posts before, my creativity has been lacking – so, in attempts to get ideas and opinions of what it is exactly that readers want to see, I asked my Instagram followers send me their ideas.

one of the responses I got was about gaining confidence. this is a popular but hard topic to write about because I feel like finding confidence in yourself is not a cut-and-dry template for everyone. it takes identifying your insecurities, why they are what they are, and doing whatever necessary to cut them down.

the submission specifically said “how to believe you’re beautiful to have a happy life + gain confidence.” my first comment on this is that it’s backwards, and I’ll explain why.
