A woman who needs no introduction, Oprah can pretty much do no wrong. And surprise, surprise: She also boasts a top-notch Instagram account. Whether documenting her plentiful garden or taking vaguely unflattering selfies, the big O does it all with aplomb. Here, 13 reasons why following her will make your life better.


1. She's understandably proud of her gardening prowess.

11. She's political, not in an in-your-face, aggressive way but in a completely out-of-focus, can’t-really-tell-that’s-Jimmy-Carter way.


12. She goes on cool vacations.
