Social media can be an exhausting place. If I spend too long scrolling, I’m left feeling drained, empty, and oftentimes… jealous. I catch myself comparing myself to other people, and it’s hard to stop. That’s why it’s so important to interrupt that endless feed with some inspiring content.
But what should you look for in an inspiring account?
I try to ask myself these 3 questions:
- Is the content adding something to my life?
- Does it match my lifestyle?
- When I scroll through their feed, does it make me a happier, better person?
Hopefully, Ditch the Clique answers YES to all these questions by providing you with inspiring and empowering resources! But we know that you’re going to look in other places to find even more inspiration, and guess what? We LOVE that! As an avid TikTok user, here’s my favorite inspiring TikTok accounts to follow:
APRIL’S FAVORITE TIKTOK ACCOUNTS:
Following Julia Garrett on TikTok was one of the best choices I ever made. She is all about ethical and inclusive fashion, providing styling tips for different body types and talking about issues in the fashion industry. Her videos are educational and engaging, with GREAT visuals.
Based in NYC, Sophie Wood posts mostly outfit videos and a few product reviews. Her style is funky, colorful, and so inspiring. I love seeing how she styles different pieces and where she buys and rents her clothes. I always make sure to watch her outfit checks so I can take inspiration for my own wardrobe.
Bryanna’s videos inspire me SO MUCH, but in a unique way. She posts daily morning routine videos with calming music. Full of aesthetic shots, cute outfits, and simple skincare, her videos always inspire me to get up early and develop my own healthy morning routine.
I LOVE seeing and supporting these inspiring women and the changes they are making in the world. It’s encouraging to know that social media doesn’t have to be so negative. And GIRL, by surrounding yourself with empowering accounts like the ones mentioned above (and Ditch the Clique’s new TikTok @ditchtheclique), YOU can find inspiration everyday. But even so, everyone needs a break from scrolling now and then, so consider attending a Ditch the Clique event to find empowerment and connection with other women!
