With the large amount of people with Instagram accounts nowadays, it can be really hard to find out the best Instagram accounts to follow. Many of us stick to following our friends, but Instagram has really grown into something much bigger than just seeing photos of your friends. Whether you like celebrities, fashion, food, or animals, there is an account out there that would be perfect showing up in your newsfeed! To get you started with adding some accounts to your Instagram that meet your interests, here are 8 best Instagram accounts to follow!
This is a 'must' for best Instagram accounts to follow when it comes to the do-it-yourself junkie! It is run by Erica Domesek, a design and style expert who lives in New York City. She posts tons of DIY projects that either she made or someone sent in to her. You can even tag your own DYI Instagram photos with #psimadethis for a chance to be featured on her account!

Not so much of a cat person? Well then follow @dogsofinstagram to get your puppy fix instead!
