Stephen Austin – @oldmansteve75

Stephen Austin | Old Man Steve TikTok | Social media influencers

It’s Old Man Steve! This 83-year-old from Texas is officially a TikTok star, having been featured on CNN and The Kelly Clarkson Show.

Naturally, we had to feature him here as well, he’s the world’s greatest Grandpa!

While others try to reinvent the wheel with their social media content, Old Man Steve keeps it real simple with some humor, magic tricks, life advice (like being thankful – we’re thankful for you, Steve), and some super simple recipes dubbed Cooking with Old Man Steve…. We’re talking toast and jelly, instant oatmeal, and scrambled eggs.

What is it about Steve Austin that’s making him such a sensation? Maybe it’s his personality that shines super bright. Perhaps people are intrigued by the fact that he’s in his 80s and taught himself to record and upload TikTok videos (hands up if you’re way younger and still trying to figure out TikTok). He reminds many viewers of their own grandfathers… and what’s not to love about a Grandpa doing Grandpa things?

Cindy has a passion for expressing her creativity, which, if her content is anything to go by, is truly inspiring. Her love for travel is evident – you can find loads of travel-related content here from architecture to monuments and gorgeous views. She fearlessly delves into the world of solo travel and has pronounced that her word for 2022 is “adventure”.

“I’m ok with journeying into the unknown and not always knowing the outcome”.

Cameron Weston / Ugly Desserts – Baked Treats Influencer

Cameron Weston | Ugly Desserts Instagram bio and posts

Cameron Weston is my hero.

Why?  Because his baked treats may look ugly, but they taste amazing.  And I think that represents most of us baking enthusiasts, don’t you think?  Not everyone’s baked creations turn into those glossy masterpieces we see in magazines and fancy Instagram posts.

So, I love Cameron with all my baking-loving heart.

He started the Ugly Desserts blog in 2018 with a particular interest in small bite-sized treats, cakes, pies, and bread.

He once started collecting recipes during his annual holiday tree-trimming party – and let’s just say that the party became a hit, with his last party serving 27 deserts.  Twenty-seven.

From salted caramel and chocolate shortbread bars, shamrock shake pie, and hot chocolate cookies to Bailey’s Irish Mocha layered brownies – Cameron’s recipe posts, in all their “ugliness”, are mouthwatering.  You can almost smell and taste them.

Vanessa Workman – @theislanddrum

Vanessa Workman travel adventures in Malaysia

Originally from Florida, USA, Vanessa Workman one day found herself in Southeast Asia thanks to a short contract job. Well, that job turned into an extended stay in the region and now Vanessa is living her best life in Malaysia.


The Island Drum is a very apt name choice for her social media. A quick scroll through her Instagram content makes it clear to see that Vanessa heard the call of island life and answered wholeheartedly.

Vanessa’s content is inspirational to others over 50 – who said you should stop exploring the world after a certain age?

We love that Vanessa has spread her content across 4 channels – Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. There is so much content to see over these 4 channels, it would be wise to follow her on all!
