4 Instagrams To Follow If You're Hungry For New Orleans

Deciding to make a food Instagram was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Naturally, I love anything and everything to do with food. So taking pictures of my meals and sharing them was something right up my alley. I love that I can flip through my Instagram at any given time and be reminded of my favorite meals from home. When my own @tookanotherbite isn't doing the trick, these are a few of my favorite NOLA foodstagrams that get me through the day.


Owners of @nolakitchen are college students that are happy to have their foodstagram because it connects them with each other and with home. "When we try a new restaurant or even just a new dish, we feel like we've discovered a new part of the city" -@nolakitchen. Proud New Orleans natives, they love to brag about NOLA and show the world the best food in their favorite city. I asked them what their favorite food was from New Orleans and they told me: "Anything, as long as it's seafood. We're always down for a crawfish boil and we REALLY love oysters!" -@nolakitchen.


Before "finstas" were popular @nolanoms started as a silly instagram posting rare and few random pictures. Owner of @nolanoms took over her friend's joke account because it had the perfect name. "I really love having my food Instagram because I believe food is a big part of New Orleans and it brings people together" - @nolanoms. Their favorite picture is this bagel because it was the first of their pictures to get over a 100 likes. It motivated them to take better pictures and invest more energy into the account. @nolanoms hopes to inspire other people to experience the delicious food discoverable in New Orleans.


@nola_foodstagram loves sharing pictures of delicious food and giving people ideas on new places to eat. Their bio reads: "every{food} in New Orleans is a good idea". Take a look at their pictures and I promise you'll get some good ideas. Their favorite thing to eat in New Orleans is any New Orleans-style brunch, or good Vietnamese pho.


After studying abroad in Italy, @evie_eats was inspired by the growing popularity of food accounts like @foodintheair and decided to make her own. "I've always taken pictures of my food, it's always been a fun way my family communicates" - @evie_eats. Nowadays she says her account is about what she eats, what she cooks, and what she wants to eat. One of the reasons why @evie_eats enjoys the art of foodstagramming is because she likes to look back at her old posts. She also likes to find and share restaurant recommendations through her travels. "It's really cool to see where it's taken me" -@evie_eats. When I asked her what her favorite food from New Orleans was, she said: "Hands down, red beans and rice... or my mother's roast beef poboys that she makes during Mardi Gras". Sounds delicious if you ask me.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
