I have a confession to make. Most times when I get into bed for the evening, I grab my phone from the end table to check out my favorite Instagram accounts. It’s a habit that actually relaxes me after a long day. I would like to say I’m working toward getting into bed with my lights out, eye mask on and lavender nearby, but I haven’t quite gotten there. For now, I’m allowing myself this small joy.

Here is a look at a few of my recent favorite accounts:

Emmy Rossum: https://www.instagram.com/emmyrossum
I started liking Emmy Rossum as an actress in the TV show Shameless. I was invested from the pilot episode when her character Fiona and Justin Chatwin’s Jimmy/Steve first met.

Rachel Brathen, Yoga Girl: https://www.instagram.com/yoga_girl/?hl=en
I have a fascination with yoga. I don’t practice as much as I’d like, but get some inspiration looking at Rachel’s photos. She’s passionate, says what is on her mind, follows her dreams, and has a zest for life.

Deliciously Ella: https://www.instagram.com/deliciouslyella
I met Ella in New York at one of her book signings. I like her story and how she cured her illness with food.

Drea DeMatteo: https://www.instagram.com/dreadematteo/?hl=en
I am and will always and forever be a Sopranos fan.

National Geographic: https://www.instagram.com/natgeo
I visit for any animal photos, especially. #animallover

Rachel Goodwin: https://www.instagram.com/rachel_goodwin
Rachel is Emma Stone’s makeup artist which is how I discovered her.

Justin Chatwin: https://www.instagram.com/justingchatwin
I became a fan of Justin Chatwin’s when I began watching Shameless as mentioned above. Justin’s account is full of his life adventures and travels and boy does he have many.

Abby, Crime by the Book: https://www.instagram.com/crimebythebook
I recently discovered Abby’s Instagram and I love crime stories.This is a good place for recommendations.

Sophia Bush: https://www.instagram.com/sophiabush/?hl=en
I recently became a fan of Chicago P.D. because I honestly think I was meant to be a detective in another lifetime. The storylines for this show are strong/solid and I’m hooked.
