We’re heading down memory lane…

Five years ago, when Zoella signed up to Instagram, she didn’t have a clue she’d become one of the UK’s biggest celebrities and most followed social media stars. Zoella’s Instagram has become an inspiration for literally millions of people and we recently wrote about how Zoe uses the platform to showcase her awesome sense of style.

But have you ever been bored enough to scroll all the way back? We have! And we did it before the “random man” story, FYI. If you’re currently sat pondering life and wondering what’s missing, it’s Zoella’s old Instagram photos. Trust us.

Here’s our pick of the best of Zoella’s Instagram that will enrich your life forever.

Showing that she’s always been the Queen of Pizza, Zoe shared this baked beauty. And despite the fact we just had unlimited pizza for lunch, we’d happily eat this rn.


A Very Cute Hedgehog

In the UK, there’s a whole bunch of crazy wildlife just roaming around in our gardens including these prickly little things called hedgehogs. This image uploaded by Zoe shows a brown spiked fella eating some cat food. Thanks for this, Zoe!
