Follow for the Simple Beauty
Clean, white backgrounds and a neutral palette with pops of natural color make images like this oh-so-serene. And they highlight the simple beauty of everyday objects. She writes, “Simple, mundane tasks don’t have to be boring—they can be beautiful.”
Follow for the Travel Inspo
Another of life’s small pleasures is travel, and Hughes’s Instagram features bits and pieces of quick, attainable weekend getaways. This one included a stay at an Airbnb that’s a minimalist’s dream-come-true—and is just a hop away in Oklahoma City.
Follow for the Beauty Tips
The everyday items on Hughes’s blog aren’t always as utilitarian as scrub brushes. Hughes has a passion for skincare and shares tips on her Insta—like this cleanser recommendation that is paired with a few sprigs of eucalyptus. It’s like a visual spa day.
