As Grazia Middle East’s February issue is dedicated to Self-Love, we decided to tackle social media and bring you accounts you can roll down your feed and feel good about — instead of seeing the different iterations of biker shorts at an IT location with a very causal #ad placement.
Curating a positive space on social media, these accounts will add loving, healing thoughts to your everyday. Get ready to tap ‘follow’ immediately.
The account which currently sports 1.3 million followers, is headed by L.A based model and artist, Koreen. We’re Not Really Strangers is an online community, where Koreen shares her healing artwork, sometimes in public spaces, filling you with positivity to help you understand a situation, re-assess, and engage you in deep discussions. She also created the WNRS card game to spark meaningful connections with others, which she also shares snippets of on her account.

Julie Houts @jooleeloren

Her posts truly uplift your spirit and make you instantly hit the share button to your meme-loving friends.
