#1. La Vecina Rubia (@lavecinarubia)
This Instagram account is one of the most popular in Spain. We barely know anything about La Vecina Rubia (in English, “The Blonde Neighbour”). It’s clear that she is blonde, from Madrid and that she loves fashion.

Also, she has a grammar-based Instagram account called El Conejito Ortográfico (@elconejitoortografico). Learning Spanish was never so fun!

Óscar Alonso is behind @72kilos. He daily posts reflections accompanied by drawings, which are ideal if you’re looking to improve your reading comprehension. But, how did all of this start? Why is his account called 72 kilos?
Two years ago, Alonso made a bet with his friends: Weighing 92 kilos, he promised that he would lose 20 in less than a year. His goal was 72 kilos, hence his artistic name! In order to achieve his objective, he started running and simultaneously drew motivating sketches to encourage himself during this process. After that, he continued drawing about different topics and even published his own book of illustrations.
