Trust us when we say Aimee Song knows what she is talkin’ about and knows how to take damn good Instagram photos.. Aimee is behind Song of Style a US fashion & decor blog and she has racked up over 1.5 million (yes million) followers on Instagram – this means she gets to travel the world, take ahmazing photos and has a very enviable closest.

If you’re quite in the know about who’s who in the Instagram zoo (and what a zoo it is, with the amount of fluffy, four-legged users floating around the network – but I digress), it’s likely you already follow Ofentse Mwase, a.k.a. @unclescrooch. As one of the most promising young filmmakers working in Johannesburg, Ofentse’s Instagrams convey an other-wordliness, a dream-like quality and a grand scale usually reserved for the big screen.
