Quick confession, we’re a little bit addicted to Instagram at Sassy Mama HQ and we have a funny feeling you might be too. From inspiring fashionistas to interior decor, our newsfeed is full of photos that we love to double tap all day long. So, whether you’re brand new to Instagram or are just looking for more inspo, we’ve got 19 Hong Kong Mom accounts that will make you fall a little bit harder for Insta.
This mama lives in Stanley Hong Kong and has an insta full of cool styles, yummy meals, and DIY projects we’re dying to try out. Ann is living the life and she’s not afraid to share it. Her motto is “Getting the Best Out of Life in Hong Kong” and her blog Kremb de la Kremb shows her doing just that! You won’t find pictures of her kids on her Instagram page though, they’re all grown up and posting on their own Instas now.
Mother of Pearl (no, really her baby girl’s name is Pearl and her beautiful blonde hair and sweet blue eyes truly make her a precious gem), Annabelle is the owner of “In House Furniture Interior Concepts” that is based in Melbourne, but now resides in the concrete jungle. You’ll find snapshots of her family, vacations, nights off mama duty and more on her Instagram page. If you are unable to travel as much as she does, you can live vicariously through her colourful and exciting feed.
Cara was featured on a That Girl post a while ago, but she’s a mama of a cute little girl now. She’s a model, TV presenter, businesswoman and most importantly a wife and a mama.

She’s also the owner of Genie Juicery if you’re thinking of doing a juice cleanse. From the looks of her insta, this mama is expecting another little bundle of joy. Find out more about her pregnancy journey and life as a mama in this The Bump post!
Elizabeth Dearborn Hughes
As the CEO of Akilah Institute, a non-profit women’s college in Rwanda and Burundi, and Akilah Net, tech platform for careers in Africa, you wouldn’t think mama was under her job description as well.

Her passion for women’s education is so inspiring; you can listen to her TED talk presentation to see for yourself. She is definitely a Sassy Mama you want to follow!
Just because you have a kid or two (or in this case three), don’t think that means you need to stop pursuing your own passions! This mama found her passion after becoming one, which was yoga.

The elegant, feminine cuts and subdued colours, along with mantras embedded in the clothing make her line shine.

It wouldn’t be a good idea to go on Gillian’s Instagram if you’re feeling hungry! She is an all round foodie from UK who now lives in the concrete jungle. However, if you’re looking for some cooking inspiration, head over to her recipe blog to see how she feeds her kiddos with easy and tasty dishes. During the day, she assists high-end British food producers to make their way into the HK market. You can learn more about what brands have been brought over on her site, and maybe look for The Mercers of Yorkshire jam the next time you’re in Marketplace by Jason’s.

Karen (Just a Little Sail Boat)
Sometimes it’s confusing when someone says that she’s a mom… Are you a mom to a human or furry friend? It’s understandable; pets require a huge amount of love and care, just like us. Well, this mama that we’re following is one to an adorable Labrador Retriever pup, two kittens and a toddler. You can follow her for everyday happenings in a (semi-crazy) household with animal and kiddo pics to brighten up your day. She also has a blog and was even featured on our very own That Mama Diaries series recently!
Recently featured on our That Bump feature, this Sassy Mama is an actress, drama teacher, casting director, wife to That Papa Roger De Leon and of course a loving mama to adorable little Phoenix.

Maura is one of the Sassy Mamas who started it all. Maura moved to Hong Kong back in 2008 with hubby Paul and as one of the three founders of Sassy HK and the only one still in Hong Kong, she’s the Managing Director of the company. Her Instagram is filled with beautiful snaps of cute little Eve who is about to turn two. When Maura’s not at Sassy Mama HQ managing the craziness of all things Sassy, she’s busy being a great mama to Eve and stealthily sneaking in a quick mani for herself.
This mum of two is a polkadot lover who works vintage trends like no other. Norbyah is also a high school teacher and a fashion blogger! Talk about doing it all. Having grown up in Malaysia, Norbyah now calls the 852 her home but she won’t agree to being called a third-culture kid; the term is too restrictive for this spirited, cool mama. Follow her insta to marvel at her quirky style and get inspired by her cool jewellery. Norbyah is also travelling right now, and her Insta is sure to be filled with amazing snaps from out-of-town.
When Rebecca says “bao bei”, which is “precious baby” in Chinese, you might have to ask if she’s referring to her baby Naima Kaya or her online baby and mama gift store BaoBae.com. BaoBae is the place to go for shoppers who don’t have much time but need something trendy and chic to gift newborns to 10 year old kids. It even has its own Instagram! Like every mom does, you can find adorable pics of her little girl on her page, which will definitely put a smile on your face. Sometimes it’s easy to forget how fast time flies and you need those 10 snaps of her drinking juice!
