Hipster Barbie’s Instagram Will Give You a Serious Case of FOMO
Insta envy is a real problem. Okay, maybe not real, real but it definitely exists. Between that friend who always seems to be traveling somewhere cool and the clothing brand that just can’t stop posting new duds you need, the social media platform can easily give you a major case of FOMO. Just in case you need one more account to add to your daily inspiration scroll, we definitely recommend you check out what this Barbie is up to on Instagram.
It looks as though the Malibu Barbie we grew up with has ditched her mansion and Jeep for a more wanderlusty kind of life. Now she’s rocking chestnut locks and is not as much interested in hanging with Ken as she is going on epic hikes and coffee dates with friends. The satirical account’s tagline reads, “That PNW Life | Adventurer | Coffee Drinker | Jesus | Authentic Living | Socality.”
Socality Barbie’s account looks pretty much just like all the other real-life adventurers we already follow (side note: does anyone actually know how those people travel SO much?!). We see her hanging out on mountain tops, chilling in hammocks and casually walking across a train track bridge Stand by Me style.
If the dreamy visuals aren’t enough for you, she’s also dropping some serious wisdom via her captions. One reads, “Climb mountains not so the world can see you, but so you can see the world.” Another says, “Humble enough to know I’m not better than anybody wise enough to know that I’m different from the rest.” Damn, Barbie. When’d you get so deep?
Welp, we never thought we’d see the day when we named Barbie our travel muse, but um, that day has definitely arrived.
