Minneapolis baker Zoë François feels like your cool aunt who offers to bake your wedding cake, as soon as you get engaged. She makes breathtaking desserts, in the most attainable, you-can-definitely-do-this-too manner. The best part are her baking tutorials found in her story highlights. She plays the best background music (think: Beastie Boys and The Supremes) and dances gleefully while torching a crème brûlée. I can’t tell you how many hours I’ve spent watching this cake tutorial — it’s absolutely mesmerizing.
Blvckvrchives, started by Renata Cherlise, captures everyday moments of black people, across the African diaspora.

The best ones including home videos, like this one of a family cookout and this one from a prom in 1992!
