Today I’m going to tell you about people that will inspire you to be yourself, to go and find who you really are and to be comfortable with it, to love it. To be crazy, wild and free. To chase your dreams, to really go and grab life with both hands. To be everything you’ve ever wanted to be.
I don’t have friends that are like me, I don’t really connect with anybody that’s on my wavelength and therefore it’s incredibly difficult for me to find myself or to be inspired by people that I encounter in my every day life. Luckily, through the wonderful power of the internet I’ve discovered beautiful souls that inspire me every day to be who I really am. I hope you’ll love them just as much as I do.
Cartia Mallan is a beautiful, empowering soul and literally the best friend I’ve always wanted to have. She’s wild, crazy, spontaneous and expresses herself exactly the way she wants to, she’s a truly incredible person and I adore her. She has a Youtube channel which I’ll link below – she creates endless inspirational videos and her editing / cinematography is second to none. When you watch her content, you can’t help but feel. Some of my favourite videos from her are:
Her Instagram is also a beautiful place to be – she posts the best photos with the most amazing & inspiring captions. @cartiamallan
I’m 99% sure Tia is the love of my life. She is nothing but authentic and real. I’m trying not to talk about these people as if I know them because obviously I don’t but oh my goodness. Tia is from a whole other world in the best way. If I could be anyone it would be her. She’s so wise, she stands up for what she believes in and has endless knowledge that I can never get enough of, she’s a writer, a dreamer and I’m pretty sure she’s going to change the world. She’s my biggest inspiration of all because she’s wild, free and everything I want to be (yes that rhymes). She says herself that she was born in the wrong era and you can totally see that, her music taste and the vibe she creates is second to none. She’s all about being a wild, crazy kid and creating memories that will stay with her forever. I check her Instagram and Tumblr on a daily basis because I literally thrive off her creative mind and the feelings and vibes she puts out. I LOVE her. I wish I’d been as free as she is at 17.
I discovered Emma a couple of years ago when I was aimlessly scrolling through Youtube and came across one of her videos, I can’t remember exactly what it was (I think it was something to do with finding yourself) but she was sat in her room just talking to the camera and I was like holy wow, this girl gets it. I would link the video for you guys but it’s since been deleted which I’m super bummed about because I gained so much from it. I then watched all of her other videos and instantly felt inspired because she was the first person I’d ever really found on the internet that seemed to have the same mind and outlook on life as I did. She was the person that started off this whole thing for me because up until that point I didn’t realise that there were people out there already doing the things that I wanted, there were already kids out there with amazing minds and crazy fashion who wanted to break the barriers, change the world and create, create, create. Through her I was then introduced to The Messy Heads.

The Messy Heads
Emma Mercury is the creator and editor of The Messy Heads, a platform that (to quote Emma directly) “celebrates positivity, living, feeling and exploring.” I couldn’t have said it better myself, The Messy Heads are a group of young people that live to explore the world, fight for what they believe in and create ironically, a beautiful mess. I’m extremely proud to call myself a messy head. They focus on discovering who you are, how to love yourself, how to express the inner workings of your mind and how to break the rules of society – “to be a rebel with a cause”. They have a blog, a Youtube channel and an Instagram full of rich, beautiful, messy and inspiring content. If these guys don’t inspire you, I don’t know what will.
Mika Francis is a beautiful, 21 year old ANGEL probably known better as Wild Daze on Youtube. I can’t remember how exactly I discovered her but it was through one of her videos a couple of years ago and I’ve been hooked ever since. She has the most open, beautiful mind and is such a wonderful soul. Again, someone else I’d absolutely love to know in real life. Her fashion is the best thing I’ve ever seen (check out her insta if you don’t believe me). She has the biggest heart and talks about topics that matter, any content she creates inspires me to be a better person and to work towards being 100% myself and loving it. My favourite videos from her are:
I only stumbled upon Claire a couple of days ago, she was another person that gave me the driving force to create this post in the first place, as I wanted to share her beautiful words with you. For the past two days I’ve been endlessly watching her videos, one after the other. She’s not even from this world, she’s an angel, created from stardust and the earth in the ground. From all of the rivers that flow and the rays of light that beam down from the sun. She is the purest of the pure. She made an hour long Youtube video about her story, her journey of self discovery and how she allowed herself to get out of her comfort zone and truly become the beautiful soul that she is. If you are lost right now or need help finding your path, please listen to Claire. She has so much knowledge to offer and so many things that will inspire you. Here are some of my favourite videos from her:
These are my favourite girlies and the people I keep up with the most however, here are some more inspirational babes for you to check out –
I hope you guys learn something from these beautiful people, please check them out if you ever need a little reassurance or are lacking inspiration, and never be afraid to be yourself.
All my love,
