Things are heating up and we are well and truly springing forward into warmer weather and sunny days. With the end of winter comes the long awaited Spring Break for students across the Northern Hemisphere. If you are south of the equator rest assured that you still have time to lap up the ocean breeze for a while longer.
As the temperature climbs it’s safe to say that if you live for summer like we do at Sandy Swim, you are probably starting to buzz with joy as you kick winter to the curb knowing that some of life’s best moments happen during springtime. However, It’s not just the weather getting hotter, it’s also our gram game. From flaunting epic bikinis and one-piece bathing suits with our best beach friends to those dreamy early morning sunrises, here are 7 special moments you will want to post on your Instagram this spring break.
1. The Skies the Limit
Getting on a jet plane to your spring break destination this year? Then grab that window seat and take some birds eye view shots. From capturing sky-high sunrises to city views upon landing you can seriously up your gram impressions with just one good shot from the sky.
Sandy Swim caption tip: “Jet lag is for amateurs”
OK spring breakers, if you are heading beach or poolside this spring vacay, then you probably won’t be leaving your BBFs (Best Beach Friends) behind. Life is what you make it so grab your best beaches and start gramming! How about taking your gram game up a notch and live streaming with your besties following a candid post of laughter and sunshine with the ladies you love the most.

3. Dive Right In
Is your dive game as good as your gram game? If so, how about setting up a few practice dives (only in the deep end and ONLY if you are a confident diver), hit the video record function and inspire your followers with your water skills.
Sandy Swim Video Tip: Hit the slow motion function on your IPhone for a great cinematic vibe.
4. Sunrise to Sunset
It might sound like a cliché but who doesn’t like a beautiful sunrise or sunset? If you are lucky enough to witness one at the beach this spring break take time to put your phone down, and soak up nature’s way of kissing the night before you start to capture the moment for your Instagram profile.
Sandy Swim Filter Tip: Add a little contrast to capture the dynamic colors of a sunrise or sunset.
5. Mans Best Friend
Our pets make our lives complete. They are our little miniature family members who love us unconditionally. If you have a pup, take them on your adventures and capture your special moments with them. If you have a cat, spend a day (safely) soaking up the sun with them (what cat doesn’t love a lazy day in the sun?). Social media loves cute pet pictures, and your pet is certainly worth the Instagram love.
Sandy Swim Gram Tip: Because every photo of your pet will be too cute not to post – create a collage of your fave pet photo to post.
6. Family Photo
We take photos of everything – from our food to our clothes. Yet, when was the last time you took a proper family photo? This is the time of year when many of us see our families for the first time since Christmas so it’s the perfect opportunity to capture a precious family moment.
Sandy Swim Tip: Chances are Grandma and Grandpa might not be social media savvy so print out the photo and surprise them with a framed family portrait – they will LOVE IT!
Lets be honest. There is nothing like a good quote to keep us motivated and inspired. Spring break is a great time to jot down ideas, goals and dreams, and with the help of some inspiring words, you can begin to set the wheels in motion. Don’t be shy, speak from the heart and let your words not only motivate you but motivate your followers too.
Sandy Swim Hashtag Tip: Instagram LOVES a good quote so be sure to utilize your 30 hashtags with the latest quote trends like #quotestoinspire #motivationalquotes and #girlbossquotes
