Welcome to a new week! I hope everybody enjoyed their weekend! I was kept busy with brunch dates on Saturday and Sunday, plus a lunch birthday celebration at my favourite place… so basically my whole weekend revolved around food, but that’s what weekends are for right?!
Today I have something a little bit different to talk about, obviously I have an outfit to share with you, but I also wanted to ask your opinion. What do you guys think of the new Instagram stories update? Are you a fan? After a few days of using it and getting used to it, I think I love it! As much as I enjoyed snapchat, I never really got into it as much as I could have. I love playing around and having fun with the filters, and my daughter and I love checking out the new ones, but I don’t really ‘do’ selfies and so the filters were basically for our own enjoyment.. and quite frankly, I really have NO INTEREST whatsoever to see other people with a cute dog filter over their face while they seductively stare at the camera. I mean, does anyone want to see that? Anyway, I guess that is one of the good things about instagram stories, there is no need for pouty-face, beautifying-filter selfies. The other reason I LOVE instagram stories is that is allows me to connect with fellow instagrammers more and to not only get a glimpse at their world behind the perfect pictures but to share a less polished look into my ‘real’ life, sort of like a behind-the-scenes for instagram! My favourite thing about instagram in general is forming relationships with other fashion lovers all over the world. This past year or so I have really really enjoyed finding and connecting with like minded people in the industry, some of whom I would now consider my friends! So I think that with the addition of stories it will allow those connections to continue to be formed and grow as well (because let’s face it, the algorithm changes have made instagram turn in to a slightly frustrating place at times!)
So over to you.. how do you guys feel about the new instagram stories update on or instagram in general? Also, if you have any questions or anything you want to see on my instagram story then please let me know!!
