Four KICKASS CHICKS’ Instagrams You Should Be Following

It’s no secret that I’ve got a few kickass ladies whose messages resonate with me deeply, and whom I follow closely through their books, YouTube channels, and websites.  These women have built their own businesses through years of hard work, dedication, and going BIG.  Their instagrams encourage us to go big and to live our best lives, too.

Gabby lives and breathes her message: Be the happiest person you know.  Between the daily affirmations on her Spirit Junkie App and Miracles Now card deck, both of which she posts regularly, she always shares inspiring phrases to live a better life.  PLUS she shares what she’s up to – her green juices of the day, NYC street art (she’s an NYC girl all the way), and gorgeous aesthetic touches in her life (because there’s no reason you can’t be spiritual and fashionable at the same time!!).  Her enthusiasm for nature and the little things in life remind me to be grateful, too :]

Gala Darling

Another example of being spiritual and loving fashion and aesthetics, Gala’s Instagram is the cool girl’s spiritual lifestyle inspiration!  Gala Darling is a former goth who turned to the BRIGHT SIDE, loving all things hot pink and sparkly and fluorescent.  This BABE consistently encourages her followers to “Adorn yourself, adore your life” – her pics are always bright little reminders to do just those two things.  She travels a lot, believes in magic and witchery, has gorgeous photos taken by her professional collaborators, and finds the coolest, quirkiest things (hot pink “Bitch” teacups, “I love it, I love it, I love it when you eat it” street art)  wherever she goes.  She loves and expresses herself just as she is, totally embodying her message of Radical Self Love!!

Number one, Rachel Brathen lives in Aruba, so her yoga-on-the-beach pics are to die for.  Number two, she writes great life insights and reminders, so even if you can’t get to Aruba and take one of her surfboard yoga classes, you can still benefit from her teachings.  She openly writes about her own life in her captions, which makes her so relatable.  Her smiling face in sun-saturated, gorgeous locales is a ray of light (haha, pun intended) on my feed!

Marie Forleo

Describing herself as “part business strategist, part marketing maven and part spiritual ass-kicker with a side of hip-hop swagger, Marie Forleo is all about being a kickass career woman while living a fulfilling life.  Her tagline is this: “Create a business and a life that you love.”  With photos that are part career inspiration, part spiritual life lessons, and part personal photos of her life and new projects, her infectiously fun and sassy point of view is so welcome in an industry that can often come off as “holier than thou.”  

What do you think of these ladies, and did I miss any?!  Let me know in the comments below!
