Originally from Sweden, Carin’s style of fashion, photography, and life in general are all on point. She creates content for major brands such as Dior, Chopard and Louis Vuitton and is always frolicking off to glamorous events or destinations.

Who says that scrolling through Instagram isn’t an educational experience!? This popular Insta account alternates between aesthetically pleasing photos of Paris and the rest of the country, and French translations of English words and phrases. Bet you didn’t know “Ă©pouvantail” means scarecrow! (Okay, there are more useful words too – see photo above).

We have to give a shout out to our fave local boss babe, Jackie Kai Ellis. Jackie splits her time between Vancouver, where she had opened Beaucoup Bakery, and Paris, where she started The Paris Tours. You can catch her in Paris these days in her adorably charming, newly renovated, Parisian pad. Once you’re done obsessing over her Insta feed, make sure to read her new book, Measure of my Powers.

Badr’s innovative take on photography shows a different side to Paris – you still have the elegant fences, charming doorways, and cute cafĂ©s, but there is something about his masculine editing style that makes the city seem a bit more gritty.

A post shared by Musée du Louvre (@museelouvre) on

You can’t go to Paris and not visit the Louvre. The problem is, with 380,000 pieces of art, you may be a tad overwhelmed with where to start in this elaborate museum. So what better way to narrow down your must-see pieces than through Instagram?! Flag all the posts you want to see in person, and you’ll be the most efficient museum goer of all time.
