At Ballymena Today we love seeing Northern Ireland businesses using social media and the internet to get attention. Here are local Northern Ireland businesses which we have enjoyed following recently on Instagram.


We first noticed twofivefive because of their candy coloured stationery – it almost makes us wish that the school holidays were over already! This online homewares stores also sell candles, cushions and jewellery making it one of our favourite Instagram feeds to keep our eye on.

The say:

A concept starting back in 2011, Belfast based twofivefive soon became a brand that was to represent some amazing products, brands and lifestyle pieces. Relaunching again in 2015 it’s now a lifestyle brand dedicated in the pursuit to grow an ever bigger catalogue and be at the forefront of introducing new products on one simple platform. Indulge personally, or use us as a hub for some great gift ideas. Either way, there really is something for everyone.

twofivefive have generously given Ballymena Today reader this discount coding offering giving 15% off valid until the 31st July. Just add ‘BMT15’ at the checkout. 

Lines & Current 

This is an online shop which offers the prettiest jewellery and accessories like sunglasses and hair wraps. We love their simplistic approach to jewellery and think that their photographs are absolutely beautiful. 10% of their profits go to causes that bring about hope and change in peoples lives.

Here is what they say:

Born out of a love for clean lines with a boho twist, ‘lines & current’ is a brand for normal girls who like to keep it simple but are not afraid to go with the unpredictable when it feels right! It’s about de-cluttering, finding clean lines and following the creative, generous spirit that pulls and prompts us.

Chur Outfitters

If you like to see pictures of pretty people wearing pretty nice clothes then you must follow Chur Outfitters. This Ballymena based business designs everything from hoodies to accessories like bags and onesies. We also spotted some photography from one of our favourite N.I. photographers/designers Emma Kenny.
