i, like many people, love beautiful photos.
and where do i find my daily dose and beautiful pictures, flat-lays, and such?? OBVIOUSLY INSTAGRAM BECAUSE DUH. i do follow a good number of people, but there are some that stand out to me who go above and beyond with their ~aestheticness~ and they must be recognized by the esteemed Queen Madeline™ THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
i also actually have an instagram / bookstagram although i don’t mention it that much– it’s right here. i took a brief hiatus a six month break from this instagram for various reasons– lack of inspiration, not enough time– you know, the usual. BUT THE ESTEEMED QUEEN IS BACK and extremely ready to fight evil with the power of ~aesthetic~ photos. go forth and follow me if you wish!
so, without further ado, my favorite instagram accounts (both bookstagram and regular) to look at.
ok so i wanted to make color swatches but ?? make it more original ?? so i listened to a song and made a color scheme / swatch / palette / whatever off of it + titled it something. here is spring days: colors meant to evoke the memories of spring and the new buds that unfurl with pale green. the songs that i listened was luv letter by dj okawari! i also listened to flower dance also by dj okawari after this + that was nice too. let me know what you think of this! i’m thinking of making more :”) ⠀ 🗒: all materials listed in photo, written on a whitelines notebook

You know that feeling when you finish a pretty much perfect book and you could just stop reading books altogether and just let this one sink into your soul for a nice long while? I finished The Girl in the Tower by @arden_katherine (sequel to The Bear and the Nightingale) last night and now excuse me while I go into a happy, cozy book coma for a while. ✨✨ . I’ll be sharing a full review on my blog soon, but in the meantime I highly recommend checking these absolutely beautiful books out. .

you can probably tell what i’m about to say: minimalism, simplicity, gorgeous, blah, blah, blah. long story short, i’m always happy to see danielle’s photos on my feed. i also adore her account name hehe.
