The Five: Swedish InstagrammersMarch 31, 2016
From picturesque landscapes to a Swedish foodie to a Victoria Secret model: Here are five Swedish-tied Instagram accounts worthy of a follow.
This account is for ladies and gents who love to cook and eat. Miss Marzipan (70K followers) refers to herself as a “Mama of 3, art director, recipe creator & tester.” She shares extremely well-photographed pictures of food she has made while keeping followers up to date with her life in the photos’ captions. Everything looks delicious, and she includes a good mix of healthy food and vegetarian options without ignoring everyone’s favorite food groups: carbs, chocolate and dessert.
Swedish dude doing Swedish things. Follow Matthias (114K followers) if you want your feed to be manly. He is a moderator of GRIP – The Motor Magazine and loves cars, fast engines, tires and mud. He shares photos of cars: the seats, wheels, engines, speedometers, etc. He shares racing videos and off-highway vehicle death warnings. If you follow Matthias, you will be entertained and may feel the need to push the pedal a bit more on your daily commute.
Visit Sweden (85.5K followers) is the perfect account to follow if you want to travel to Sweden but can’t afford to. Each week a new curator is selected to share beautiful photos of Swedish landscapes and attractions that are almost too perfect to be real. Transport yourself to Stockholm, Kiruna and Kungsbacka free of charge and sans jet lag. If you happen to be lucky enough to be visiting in person, use the hashtag #visitsweden to have your photos featured on its page.
Similar to Visit Sweden, but Sweden (64K followers) has slightly different content. Follow both accounts to ensure that your feed is always full of stunning pictures that make you wish you were somewhere cooler.
Elsa Hosk (2.3M followers) is a Swedish model living in New York City. You know her, you love her and have seen her slaying the runway each year in the Victoria Secret Fashion Show. Although she is known for her work with Victoria’s Secret, she also has modeled with other top brands like Free People, Dior, H&M, Lilly Pulitzer and Dolce & Gabbana. Fun fact: Hosk almost gave up her modeling career to pursue playing in the Swedish women’s basketball league. Follow her on Instagram if you need some major fitspo, to see the breathtaking places her job takes her… and to see many pictures of a drop-dead gorgeous model in a bikini.
