Blake Lively, Instagram


Blake Lively is a woman of many talents. She can act, obviously. She can bake. She puts together a heck of a lifestyle website. She's a great mom. And now she can add Instagrammer Extraordinaire to her resumé.

Of course, she isn't exactly new to social media—Lively has been 'gramming since July 2014. But we've been noticing her posts a lot more as of late, and we feel as though she needs some recognition for what is an otherwise under-the-radar feed. 

Don't follow Blake expecting to find juicy posts about her personal life or a stream of gratuitous selfies. There are other celebs to follow if that's what you're looking for (although we're not naming any names). Instead Blake is good for nostalgia and endearingly lame jokes. Think of it as the quirky aunt of celebrity Instagram accounts. 

Sure, sometimes Blake uses her feed to tease out big happenings at Preserve or give a shoutout to her hubby Ryan Reynolds, but most of the time she's testing out a funny face or superimposing her friends' faces onto someone else's body. 

Ahead, five reasons why Blake Lively should be your new favorite Instagram celeb.

She makes mom jokes that are actually funny:


She's not afraid to make fun of herself:


She loves a good Photoshop job: 

...that one time. When I secretly joined a dance troop. @twerk4dci you ladies are awesome.
