Instagram, many have a love-hate relationship with the popular app. Because how wonderful is it to scroll aimlessly through that endless feed with your mind at zero? A small escape from reality, in between daily activities. Unfortunately, it is also incredibly time-consuming and we compare ourselves, often unconsciously, with others more than ever. Fortunately, we ourselves have a lot of influence over who we follow and when we do so. In this blog we tip five mothers who each inspire us in their own way.La Vie Sanne
Looking for a daily dose of humor in your feed? Search no further! 30-year-old Sanne is the mother of son James, daughter Isa and recently gave birth to a brand new daughter. She is known for her witty humor and hilarious characters. With her honest view on motherhood and statements such as: “Home is where my chip shop is” she makes many laugh.
Elise is a mother of three who navigates life through bustling Amsterdam. She shares her honest vision of motherhood and doesn't shy away from sharing the downs that parenthood brings. Her openness about self-development, and as she says herself, chaotic housekeeping is refreshing in the often (too) polished Instagram world.
Last fall, Chanel Matil Lodik released her first book called "The Anti-Racism Handbook," in which she explains why it's so important to engage in anti-racism and how you can actively contribute to an inclusive society. In addition, this inspiring woman is also a mother, speaker and influencer and she raises topics that everyone thinks about, but that hardly anyone dares to discuss. Think of topics such as diversity & inclusion, autism, but also entrepreneurship and motherhood.
She is co-founder of SLA (the well-known salad bars), mom entrepreneur, author, but above all mother of three beautiful kids. With her book Mama'en (the guide to pregnancy, birth and postpartum time) she was very successful and last January she published the book 'De Geboortebund', a beautiful compilation of birth stories from woman to woman. Through her Instagram she shares everything about the ins and outs of busy family life and her businesses, her unfiltered view of parenthood and gives fun, sustainable and useful tips.
As her Instagram bio describes: “Pretty pictures, real stories”, and that is exactly what you can expect when you follow Rachel van Sas aka De Huismuts. Together with her husband Willem and two daughters Rosie and Pip, she chases her dreams. For example, since 2021 they have been the proud owners of Het Wylde Pad, a small-scale holiday park in Friesland, where you can escape the daily hectic pace. Rachel is also the right place for great interior tips and pictures!
