Oh, social media, how we love and hate you so. We’d quit you if we could, or actually wanted to. But we can’t, and we don’t.
We can, however, improve our social media experience by letting go of the junk (think: whiners and fakers) and curating high quality authenticity in our feeds.
Starting with Instagram.
Here are 7 interesting, funny, cool, smart, hip, real, famous, semi-famous, and not famous moms you need to add on IG right now.
1 | Christina Brown || @LoveBrownSugar
Native New Yorker, Christina S. Brown is a lifestyle blogger at LoveBrownSugar.com focusing “on fashion and beauty for multicultural women with an emphasis on self-empowerment.” Her IG is glam meets true.
Heading back to the states with another island crossed off my bucket list. Cheri Martinique, je t’adore. ?: @marie_brion See yesterday’s adventures on snapchat ?: christinasbrown (P.S. I know some of you have been DMing me that you’re headed to Martinique soon. I’ll have a recap of my trip with tips for travel on LoveBrownSugar.com) #LBStravels #LBSinMartinique #24HourReset #travelnoire
2| Jasmine Banks || @DJazzo
Jasmine Banks describes herself as a “queer Black woman, mom to 3, lover of people, cookies, and roller derby.” She’s real, funny, and fierce.

3 | Anna Macfarlane || @KidsAreTheWorst
Anna had the genius idea of providing Instagram proof that kids really are the worst. Aren’t they, though? You can also find Dogs are the Worst, and Things are the Worst over at KidsAreTheWorst.net. Follow this account and infuse your feed with laughs.
Sometimes you’re on a cruiser and sometimes a ten-speed. I need to find a bike for my soon-to-be 12yo son and would love recommendations. Tag a friend that knows about great bikes for growing almost-men. TIA #kidsaretheworst

5 | Amy Webb || @ThisLittleMiggy
Amy Webb is obviously a woman of many talents, including writing, painting, and photography, all of which you can discover at ThisLittleMiggy.com. She’s also a mom to a child with special needs. The youngest of her three daughters was born with a rare disease called Microgastria and Limb Reduction Complex, a part of her life she writes about with breathtaking honesty.
A throwback to one of my favorite pictures of all time…when Lamp was a baby I left her with PSP while I took a quick shower. When I got out she said, “Look! I decorated her!” ❤️ #ilovelamp #psplove #limbdifferences #limbdifferenceawareness #limbdifference #differentlyabled #tbt
