About a month ago I gave Snapchat recommendations to a few friends and as I sent them this list I realized I should give these recommendations to all of you as well. There are a lot of creatives on this list… in fact, I think they’re all either artists, bloggers and/or YouTubers. The people on this list inspire me to be creative every day, to “get shit done” and provide some much needed moments of entertainment throughout the day. I split this list up into artists (listed first, because I absolutely love their Snapchat paint sessions), and bloggers/YouTubers. I also have a section at the end for a few accounts that I love to watch, but since their stories tend to be longer, if I’m running short on time I often (regretfully) skip them… or just choose one.
(Also, if we’re not following each other on Snapchat yet, we should be! Come find me: dreamsetcblog.)
1 // Paper Fashion (paperfashion) // Painting, travel // She, along with a friend’s nagging :), is the reason I joined Snapchat. I love her creative view of the world and her Snapchat painting sessions are inspiring.
2 // Mari Orr (mariorrart) // Painting, tennis // She also has a creative view of the world. I love that she gives her viewers a behind-the-scenes look at her creative pursuits (including her Snapchat painting sessions), and that she also talks about how she balances motherhood, art/business and daily activities–including one of her faves, tennis.
3 // Emily Jeffords (emily_jeffords) // Painting // Another painter who balances motherhood, her painting sessions in her beautiful studio, and traveling/family activities.
4 // Forrest Mankins (morrestfankins) // Travel, photography // He’s living the dream: traveling and taking photos. He also spends a lot of time in Glacier National Park, so if you love Glacier, you should probably follow him on Snapchat. (Although I haven’t seen him as much recently, so maybe he’s using Snapchat Stories more. Or maybe I just haven’t been on Snapchat as much.)
5 // Anna (theannaedit) // Blogging, healthy living // Workout recaps, the delicious and healthy recipes (along with the occasional greasy pizza) and blogging… I always enjoy her snaps!
6 // Carrie (carriewish) // Blogging, London, travel // Carrie travels a lot, but when she’s home you can venture out into London, mixed with behind-the-scenes blogging talk sometimes.
7 // Claire (heyclairehey) // Travel, cat // Claire travels quite a bit and has the cutest cat named Bruce who she features quite a bit when she’s home.
8 // Leigh Ann (leighannsays) // Daily life, dog // Leigh Ann takes you on her adventures each day and features her adorable pup Luna. (Fun fact: Luna was one of the names I considered for Little One before choosing Mina.)
9 // Chelsea (truelane.co) // Daily life, travel // Truelane, aka Chelsea, used to live in Minneapolis, so it was always fun to see my city in her snaps. She’s still so much fun to watch because she travels quite a bit, talks about blogging and is so funny!
Not Always Daily
10 // Andy Mineo (andymineo) // Music, daily life // I love Andy Mineo’s snaps, but they do get a little long sometimes so if I’m short on time I’ll skip his story. Still, he’s definitely worth following because you get a behind-the-scenes look at his music and sometimes he shares his thoughts on creativity. True story: there have been times that I’ve re-watched his story and taken notes.
11 // Dave Conrey (daveconrey) // Art, creative life, business // Dave Conrey encourages people to do the work and shares thoughts on a creative life and a creative business. He also has a mug that I’d love to drink coffee out of…especially during writing sessions.
12 // Paige Poppe (paigepoppe) // Art, daily life // Paige Poppe snaps throughout the day, which means her stories can get kind of long, but I love the behind-the-scenes look at her art business.
So tell me, what are your favorite Snapchat accounts to follow?

This is an awesome list, Crystal! I seriously need to follow more people on Snapchat. Though, I’m not into rap – I am sure Andy Mineo has some awesome snaps of life, message, and music.
I’m so glad you liked it! I have always been hit or miss with rap, but I absolutely love Andy Mineo and Trip Lee’s music. He’s definitely worth following even if his music isn’t your fave, though, for the very reasons you said. 🙂
Lots of great accounts to follow here! I haven’t yet jumped on the snapchat band wagon, although I hear great things about it!
Check some of these out if/when you do. 🙂
I fought against snapchat so much when it first came out. But now I absolutely LOVE it! Thank you for this list, I’ll make sure to check them out!
I did too. The only social media platform that I jumped on as soon as I had the chance was Instagram, but Snapchat has quickly become my favorite.
oh I am so going to check these ones out!! I love love hey claire hey!! She’s absolutely my favorite youtuber!
She’s my fave YouTuber too. I love how creative her videos are! They’re so different than everyone else’s.
I don’t follow any of these people but I will definitely have to check them out.
I hope you’ve been enjoying them!
The only person on this list I had heard of before was Chelsea! I LOVELOVELOVE Snapchat (I’m @ erica_lig !), so I’ll have to add these creatives ASAP!
Coming Up Roses
I follow you too. 🙂 I hadn’t been following you for long when I wrote this, but you’ve become one of my faves too. 🙂 I hope you enjoy some of the new people you follow!
WOW, awesome!! Thank you so much–I have added all of these snappers to my Snapchat. I still have no idea what I’m doing but I feel as though I’m getting better. I introduced my bestie to Snapchat over the weekend; she liked all of the different weird filters 🙂
I hope you’ve been enjoying them! 🙂 I think that’s the best way to draw people into Snapchat… show them the filters!
