Steven Barlett is the 27-year old CEO of the @socialchain – he understands social media. He’s built an extremely successful business advising and producing social content strategies for a whole host of impressive global brands.

One of his latest white papers on social trends states that the amount of affection and love [on Instagram] have been increasing a rate far higher than most negative emotions. This highlights the fact that the social media audience are refusing to take a pessimistic standpoint on all the negative content traversing the globe via digital media channels.’

Steven’s own personal handle is an insightful and thought-provoking grid of commentary based on real life learnings, science and fact. He isn’t re-hashing tiresome memes you’ve seen a million times over. Steven takes a deep dive into what make us tick; love and relationships, feelings of loneliness, why we overthink, decision making, business acumen, mental health, how to be a rational human, how to avoid toxic relationships, deal with heartbreak, build trust. Have a read to feel pretty darn inspired.

My disappointed face that you guys voted Liam over Chris 😂 only joking I was quite disappointed at myself today. I chickened out of answering a few questions via video for an amazing brand but I just hated myself on video and didn't feel I was doing it justice. Hopefully I will have the confidence to record videos in the future but for now I'm loving learning more about my camera ✨ suit @hm

For those who appreciate style (that’s all of you lovely lot) Alexandra Rose Mcnally’s feed is aesthetically titillating. Chic and sleek this girl can curate. A creative, a writer and self-proclaimed believer of good energy (here, here!) Alexandra knows how to capture a great picture, and how to wear high street oh-so very well. She styles an effortless neutral palette of high street gems with a handful of independent labels that you may not have already heard of – but are well worth checking out.

Alexandra is also a mental health ambassador and she talks frankly about her own experiences on her blog. When the world is feeling a little too noisy, lose yourself in Alexandra’s calming tonal space – and then plan your new season closet.

On the subject of calming spaces, this account lets us play voyeur to some beautiful interior set-ups peppered, draped, festooned in foliage. Get your daily dose of Big Leaf Energy right here and remember why we all need some plant-action in our lives.

From tiny sunny corners and eccentric dusty bookshelves to lavish dream inducing master-spaces, digitally created scenes and even illustration and painting. This handle is the antidote to flammable throwaway fashion, shouty ‘influencers’ and face-contouring (phewf). It inspires us to introduce green to our spaces, whatever shape, size or design our spaces might be. The smallest fern or tumbling Devil’s Ivy will bring joy. Read the instructions, water your new friend and watch it flourish. Namaste to that.
