40 Dope Women to Follow on Instagram That Will Inspire You Daily

By Shenika Chambers •  September 27, 2016

 

With Instagram growing every day (500 million accounts and counting!) it’s hard to separate the people worth following and the irrelevant, non-informative accounts we are subject to follow. I, for one, know all too well what it is like following a bunch of people whose photos I will never like and stories I don’t care to open. Here at BAUCE, we are women of substance. Besides the obvious posts from close friends and family, why not make your timeline a little more worth viewing?

To make it easier on you, we’ve shared some accounts whose posts I feel are worth the double-tap. These ladies we consider to be BAUCE’s and add more than just a pretty picture to our day. They inspire us to do more with or daily lives in every way possible!
