Who: Aarika Lee
Instagram bio: Multi-tasker by day * Musician by night * Wife to @thelioncityboy * Mama to #ZolaMae & #AriJon * Snapchat: aarikaleeee
This mama of two who is a marketing director and copywriter at Elementary Co. exudes some serious hipster vibes. We love how she coordinates her laid-back yet fashionable outfits with that head-turning head wrap of hers! It sure isn’t something everyone can pull off, but Aarika seems to handle it effortlessly. As with nearly all Instagram mums, her two adorable kids are the stars of her Instagram feed. Aarika is also a Melissa Insider, so you’ll get to see some behind-the-scenes snippets of her shoots for the shoe label that’s popular with mums!

Who doesn’t love a good travel feed on Instagram? This one by Amber Yong, mum of world-famous momo twins, Leia and Lauren (@leialauren), definitely gets our two thumbs up! This adventurous mama has travelled to exotic locations, such as Iceland, and has captured photographs that certainly do justice to the country’s stunning landscapes. How she managed to travel to Iceland with a pair of bubs under the age of one is absolutely beyond us! That will be a story for another day, we reckon.

Who: Angie S.
4 Apr | One of the first words Buddy articulated is “dog” (yes he could say dog before he could call me Mummy). I’m secretly pleased that both my kids inherited my love for animals, particularly dogs. Whenever we are out and come across a dog 🐶, he will run towards it excitedly, wanting to stroke, hug and pat it. I love this pic of Buddy carrying our neighbour’s dog, Hazel, whom they adopted from a shelter last month. Both so loving and very much loved by their families! 💗💗💗 #sg #sgfamily #sgkids; #sgkids, #sghomes, #sgfamilies, #sgig, #InstaSG, #instadaily, #instalikes, #instagram_sg, #instakids, #petsforlife
Instagram bio: SG Blog Awards Winner 2015. As a family, we love to create beautiful memories, one snapshot at a time.
Blogger mama Angie’s Instagram feed revolves around her two kids, Buddy and Dana. (hence appropriately named @lifestinymiracles) She stays up to date with what’s new on the children’s scene in Singapore and shares lots of pictures from her fun-filled outings with her family. You will also find the occasional food recommendations and household tips which could come in handy when you least expect it!

Audrey Tan is a blogger, fashionista and entrepreneur mummy all rolled into one! She is mother to one year old Kayla, and is currently expecting her second child! Little Kayla features predominantly on her mummy’s Instagram feed – we are not complaining. In fact, we can’t decide who’s cuter – Kayla or her little pet bunny. You’ll also find some super adorable videos of Kayla every now and then!

Who: Charlene Chew
We were hunting for some food at Tokyo train station before catching the Shinkansen 🚄 to Osaka. Look! How adorable are these Siretoco Donuts! We bought a Tokyo version 🍩 that’s not available elsewhere, for @little_miss_chewy as a little surprise for her when she wakes up from her nap 😴 There’s also a newly launched Shinkansen special! 😄 #thechewystravel #thechewyslovejapan2016

Who: Daphne Ling

Before we say anything else, we love how Daphne Ling sums up motherhood so succinctly in her bio. Being a mother of four (yes, that’s right), it’s no wonder then that her adorable brood dominates her Instagram feed. Her photographs of loving moments shared between her kids really make our hearts melt. If you are family-oriented and love children, then you will absolutely love Daphne’s profile. Who knows, it might even make you want to have more kids!

Instagram bio: Truly an island girl at heart * Mom of 3 * I workout so I can have my cake and eat it*
We are liking how this fit mama strikes a balance between exercise and cake. Jen manages to make time for her fitness routine while being a mother of three. (wow!) How amazing is that? She also goes on the occasional fun-filled holiday with her kids (an adorable bunch) in tow. If you ever need inspiration to start hitting the gym again post-pregnancy, you know where to look for it! Having said that, we really admire this cool mama for her dedication to fitness! Hats off!

Who: Tjin Lee
A photo posted by Tjin, Tyler & Baby Jake (@tjinlee) on
We haven’t the slightest idea how entrepreneur mama Tjin Lee manages to even get on her phone, let alone snap something picture-perfect given that she’s the co-founder of a whopping twelve businesses. She is mum to two adorable boys, Tyler and Jake, who happen to have their own Instagram feed as well. (@tylerandjakey) Both boys are mini fashionistas, so you’ll find yourself going “Wow!” at their snazzy outfits. Tjin is quite the globetrotter as well – so you’ll be treated to photos from her adventures.
