When I scroll through Instagram, I want to see content that keeps me in the know while also making me laugh. I put together a list of my top 20 feel-good accounts as we go into 2021.
Country singer, Maren Morris, is also a very relatable wife and mom!
Best known for her role as Pam on The Office, Jenna Fischer is a very creative and funny mom of two. Her cooking and crafting are top notch! She also takes part in a funny podcast, Office Ladies!
Jessie gives us a little bit of everything! She and husband, Eric Decker, have three adorable kids, who are always up to something. Jessie is a successful singer/songwriter, author, and fashion designer! Her high energy and southern charm comes through her account!
Canadian native, Kaitlyn Bristowe, is from The Bachelor franchise and went on to be the lead of The Bachelorette (Season 11). Her account is full of positive vibes and good energy with her boyfriend, Jason Tartick (also from The Bachelor franchise) and their two dogs, Pinot and Ramen. They are the cutest little family! Busy with her podcast, her own wine label, and a really cool hair accessory company, she is on fire!
What is there not to love about Kristen Bell? I mean, seriously! Her adventures with husband, Dax Shepard, and their two daughters will have you laughing out loud. They also deal with real-life issues, like depression, anxiety and addiction. Kristen is a real breath of fresh air!
The Kristin Cavallari that we all loved back in her Laguna Beach days is better than ever! She’s a mom, author, fashion designer and overall BOSS. Her sense of humor and fashion are unique and edgy and her late-night karaoke sessions are a real treat! When Kristin and her best friend/hairdresser, Justin, hit the wine, things get wild.
Another favorite from The Bachelor franchise, Ali Fedotowsky Manno, also went on to be the lead in The Bachelorette (Season 6). She’s married to radio and television host, Kevin Manno, and they have two young children. Her adventures in motherhood and running her own blog are real, encouraging and endearing. She also shares the best life and beauty finds!
Are you ready to fall absolutely in love with Leslie Jordan? I know him from his role in Will & Grace. He was hilarious then and he’s hilarious now! His sweet southern drawl and that infectious laugh will have you hanging on his every word.
Country music superstar, Kelsea Ballerini, has more than just a killer voice! Her sense of humor is out of this world, and she is as real as they come. I love watching her dance around the house with no makeup and not a care in the world. She is such a queen!
Jen Hatmaker is a successful author, speaker, podcast host and activist, but her most impressive job is mom. She is the rockstar of moms and does all the hard things like a champ. When she sits down to talk to us, usually from her front porch swing, I feel like she is speaking straight to me. Jen is authentic and honest and funny and real and one of my favorite people ever.
Following Amy Schumer is like having a stand-up comedy show at your fingertips at all times. The dynamic between her and husband, Chris Fischer, is hysterical, and her navigation of motherhood is heartwarming.
Reality television star, Cameran Eubanks Wimberly, got her start on MTV’s The Real World: San Diego (2004) and more recently starred in Bravo’s Southern Charm. I love her call-it-like-it-is personality mixed with her sweet-as-pie demeanor. Cameran’s honesty as she became a new mother and realized that she did not connect with the flawless parenting images all over social media is one of her most relatable qualities. I cannot wait for her book coming out in February 2021.
Comedian Chelsea Handler is over-the-top and pushes the envelope, and I love her for it. She says what most people wish they could but don’t. This is another account that is jam-packed with comedy gold.
Dan Levy took the world by storm with his creativity and acting in Schitt’s Creek. His Insta account is everything! He gives us funny and fashion and personality galore, but he also provides learning and resources for inclusivity and love. He’s such a gift to his followers and the world.
Okay, are you ready to laugh some more? Leslie Jones is at the forefront of Instagram with her constant comedy. Her loud and outspoken commentary on everything from the Olympics to politics to reality television will have you rolling on the floor.
Matthew McConaughey – need I say more? His bio describes him as a husband, father, actor, minister of culture, professor, creative director, Austin FC, JKLivin, and pickle expert. I’ll just leave it at that. Do not miss out on this brilliant person!
If you’ve watched any Real Housewives reunions or Watch What Happens Live, then you already know why you need to follow Andy Cohen. His account lets us in on his life as he navigates fatherhood with young son, Ben, and it is so beautiful to see! The occasional cameos by Anderson Cooper, Sarah Jessica Parker, and all of the housewives are just a bonus.
Journalist, Katie Couric, is at the forefront of bringing us information on current world events and keeping us up to date. The peak into her family life makes her even more lovable. Her journalism skills and dance moves are on point!
Jonathan Van Ness may be best known for hosting Queer Eye, but do not miss his morning coffee dances! He is committed to providing hope and help to make this world a better place, and he is doing it with the fiercest energy you could ever imagine. Whether he’s giving us a fashion show, showing us the best beauty products, providing resources for inclusion and unity, or bringing us the most amazing gymnastics, JVN IS A GEM!
The national treasure that is Chrissy Teigen! She can cook and serve a look like nobody’s business. Plus, she gives us the funniest, realest content in all of Insta-land. Oh, and she gives us John Legend, the cutest kids, and the best clapbacks to all the internet trolls. What more could you even ask for?
You can probably gather from my top 20 that I love comedy and relatability. These Instagram accounts will keep you up to date and entertained with a healthy dose of laughter throughout 2021. Happy Following!
