10 Female Instagram Artists You Need To Follow Right Now

We all know names like Frida Kahlo and Georgia O'Keefe, but we often times forget about female artists trying to make their art known to the world. In honor of women's history month, let's honor these unique voices in art.

1. @pollynor

@pollynor's art is sometimes unsettling but is ultimately extremely relatable and honest. She has told so many stories about female experiences through her art and it is greatly appreciated.

2. @tomatosita

@tomatosita's line work is so precise and her drawing style is very satisfying. Her characters are always looking moody and over it, creating relatability.

3. Stephanie Sarley (@stephanie_sarley)

@stephanie_sarley's art embraces self-love and human behaviors. She uses primarily fruits and vegetables to convey these messages and it could not be more effective.

4. Grace Miceli (@artbabygirl)

@artbabygirl's drawings are fun and colorful. She uses commercial products as a backbone to share relatable phrases that feel like a warm hug.

5. @aleia

@aleia's miniature dioramas with snails are my personal favorite to see while scrolling through Instagram. Her art has appeared in music videos and album art. This account is a must follow

6. Petra Collins (@petrafcollins)

Petra Collins is on her way to becoming a household name, as she's directed Selena Gomez and Cardi B music videos as well as modeling in and directing various Gucci campaigns. She's making a name for herself and all we can say is Girl Power.

7. @likrotable

@likrotable is one of my personal favorite Instagram artists. Her work is often times edgy or macabre but, her characters' big eyes resemble the work of Margaret Keane.

8. Laura Jayne Hodkin (@laurajaneyh)

Laura Jayne is an animator who's work creates a relatable retelling of female experiences. She is a must follow for her comics and adorable animations.

9. @gentlethrills

Have you ever wanted wearable art? Look no further because @gentlethrills is the artist/merchandizer of your dreams. Her prints are made to be worn and each of her products is unique. Is there anything more to say?

10. Esther Kim (@estherlovesyou)

If you were/are a Hello Kitty lover and you don't follow @estherlovesyou, you are missing out on another cute character to obsess over. Esther Kim created Esther Bunny and she's adorable, to say the least. Don't miss out on the cuteness and follow this Instagram.

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.
