Instagram is one of the most popular social media sites around, with approximately 400 million active monthly accounts! Whether you’re scrolling through your feed first thing in the morning, searching for outfit inspiration or deciding what you’re going to eat for your cheat meal #foodporn, there’s no denying Instagram is becoming part of almost every career girl’s daily routine. If you’re an avid Instagrammer, here are ten things you’ll be able to relate to:
#1 Stalking a celebrity crush
Everyone needs the occasional torso to brighten up a boring workday.
#2 Being the first to like a friend’s selfie
Because selfie support is the best kind of support.
#3 Accidentally liking a post from 82 weeks ago
We’ve all been there; when you’ve scrolled so far down on someone’s profile that you’ve reached Tenerife 2010. Un-liking it quickly, “my friend stole my phone” and “I was drunk” are all suitable reactions.
#4 Upping the brightness and contrast
Although you may have already contoured your face to perfection, a little adjusting may help your contour look even more on fleek.
#5 Having a favourite filter
We’ve all got one; maybe PERPETUA, to add a little brightness, or HEFE, to give you the ultimate Insta-tan.
#6 Seeking approval before posting a selfie
Whether it be a boyfriend, a best friend who happens to be a master in the art of selfie-taking or the most straight talking friend you know, we’re all in need of a selfie-approver.
#7 Cropping out the fat arm
Often taken on a night out after a couple of vodka-cokes, one arm is carefully placed round a friend’s waist and the other is pressed up against your side looking as large as it possibly can. Instead of letting it ruin a perfectly good photo, you crop it out and remind yourself that a hand-on-hip-stance is a much better solution.
#8 Religiously liking your girl crush’s posts
Most commonly a Victoria’s secret angel. Maybe if you like their posts enough, you’ll begin to look like them?
