5 Instagram Accounts You Should Be Following | Just Add Ginger

I'm a big advocate of shopping small, independent business and supporting local talent wherever possible. In place of browsing high street or big online stores for things to buy I would much rather look on Etsy or Instagram. 

With all this in mind I wanted to sit down and share the love of some of the accounts that I'm really enjoying and places I just love to shop. Yes a lot of them pertain to a similar theme but I am living that mum life nowadays so these are the places I enjoy browsing the most!

Bear and Rose | @bearandrose

I first stumbled across Bear and Rose on Etsy. I was on the search for a little name plaque for Little One and there they were. Stocking the sweetest range of bespoke personalised and decorative pieces that would be gorgeous for the home, wedding and children's bedrooms alike I want to add pretty much everything they stock to our house in some way. If you like a little touch of the rustic or Scandi then this is definitely the account for you! 

The Monochrome Baby | @themonochromebaby

The Monochrome Baby also have an online store where they sell clothing items for adults and children who - as the name would imply - have an appreciation for monochrome items. Their Insta feed is a curation of styling inspiration and outfit ideas and looking at the photos just makes your heart melt. Have a baby or are looking for something a bit more original to buy as a gift for someone you know? I'd definitely give them a follow.

The Enchanted Maple | @the.enchanted.maple

I actually went to school with the lady who runs this account so I am pretty invested in following her and advocating her work. Again, The Enchanted Maple can be found on Etsy too and with everything that is sold you can just tell how much love and thought has been poured into it. From reading pillows to greetings cards and keepsakes it is the definition of a home-run business and all the items are just so sweet. The Enchanted Maple is the perfect place to look if you are after a gift that is that little extra bit special - just scroll through their feed and your bound to spot something you instantly covet.

Books for My Toddler | @booksformytoddler

Like with The Enchanted Maple I know the lady who runs Books For My Toddler. A teacher and reading advocate her feed is full of not only book recommendations but daily tips and ideas for how to incorporate reading into part of your everyday routine. All of her ideas are easy to carry out or put together and add a bit more structure to story time (which as a stay-at-home mum I've found a godsend.) I have put it to this one that she should start a blog with all of her ideas so hopefully one day I'll be singing the praises of that too.

Tinypix | @tinypix.co

My latest Etsy discovery and one that I immediately fell in love with Tinypix sells the most beautiful prints that would look stunning in any child's bedroom or nursery. Their Instagram feed is the epitome of decor inspiration for me at the moment (we are undergoing a few home improvements and doing some redecorating). I've ordered two prints from them already and will more than likely be ordering more once our back bedroom (where Eric is moving to) is painted. Everything they sell is created in calming colours and serene tones so are ideal no matter what your decor preferences (or that of anybody you are buying for) are.
