A brand new month, a brand new year and a whole new set of hashtags to start exploring. January can often give us the blues with a post-Christmas crash but with a little exploration on Instagram, you can be reminded of the joyful moments that this month has to offer.
#SnowdropWatch & #SnowdropSeason
These are relatively small hashtags but ones that I am going to have my eyes on this month and into February as I love to see the snowdrops popping up here and there around the country. A great one to contribute to if you see some of these lovely blooms springing up near you.
One I discovered through Sara Tasker’s amazing monthly hashtag newsletter (you can sign up here, highly recommended). The hashtag was started by Lia Leendertz (@Lia_leendertz) who is a self-declared ‘Almanac Maker’ and author of the book; The Almanac: A Seasonal Guide to 2019. A great one to turn to for the changing of the seasons and a celebration of nature.
A wonderful hashtag for the more playful and surreal posts, this is a favourite of mine alongside #HurrayForPlay and Rabya’s (@sheflourished) #AWeekendWhimsy. All of these hashtags cherish the more quirky and fun-loving posts bringing a little joy to your day.
Finding the time to read more often has been a focus of mine in the past few months and with that I have so enjoyed seeing all of the outdoor ‘bookstagram’ posts, if not just to get tip-offs for upcoming must-reads. I also love #BookstagramGirl for the same reason, time to brush off those books I think!
Along with #AWhisperedBeauty this hashtag has some of the most authentic and beautiful posts with a seasonal thread running through. Ones to join in on if you like a more nature-inspired feed.
Other hashtags I have been enjoying this month include #TheQuietWinter and #WinterStories for their seasonal moods and embracing all that winter still has to offer.
As always, let me know if there are any January hashtags that you think should be added to the list.
