Instagram’s Redesign

Instagram's Redesign

Oh my goodness, Instagram rolled out a redesign of user profiles this week and it is gorgeous. I love how clean and simplified everything looks like now along with the rounded profile pictures which are popping up everywhere! This is a huge upgrade from what it looked like before because now the photos are larger and more of a focus. It’s funny how excited I got about this, but I think a lot of that excitement has come from me working in tech now.

You Did Not Eat That

audrina

I don’t know about you guys, but I have become a little bit annoyed when I see Instagram photos of pretty and delicate bloggers/models, celebrities etc. eating foods that you wouldn’t expect them to eat in the first place. Sure they’re posing with a burger or an ice cream cone, but …do we know if they actually ate the whole thing or just used it for an Instagram shot. Here’s a photo above of Audrina Patridge gorging on In N’ Out. Granted, there’s no way to figure out if they did eat it because we weren’t there, but one Instagram account holder seems to believe that all of these people are just using these food items for props and you know what? It’s not a ridiculous idea.

Check out the Instagram here.

A Toy Plane and an iPhone

There are Instagram users that become insta-famous for their selfies. Then there are Instagram users like Varun Thota who challenge us to look at photographs in a different way. Using a toy plane and his iPhone, Varun takes his plane on a journey with every snap.

Macau-based web designer and developer Varun Thota is the son of a helicopter and a devoted flight enthusiast. His childhood was filled with hours in front flight simulators and even today he carries a small Kinder egg airplane that he likes to photograph against dramatic backgrounds, as if a hand was reaching out of the sky controling each flight. It’s a simple enough idea, but wonderfully executed by Thota. You can see more over on his Instagram account. (via the Instagram Blog)

Too Cold Too Hold Drink Sleeve – $5

I recently stumbled upon ban.do online and haven’t been able to take my eyes of their products. Every Instagram photo of theirs is adorable and the products on their website ooze of cuteness. They all would make some of the most perfect gifts for my girlfriends. Have any of you heard of them before or even purchased any of their products? They’re a shop that I am really excited about. Here are just a few things that I would want for myself and to give:

The Humblebrag

macklemore tweet

So it’s been a few days since this actually happened and everything has kind of blown of since then, but seeing this text made me feel incredibly uncomfortable! No one can deny that Macklemore has done such great things for the city of Seattle and has turned things around in the scene. Locals are excited about him and proud. Taking home as many Grammys as he did on Sunday night was quite the achievement, but it quickly turned sour the next morning when he wrote this tweet and instagramed this text.

It is what we call “the humblebrag.” It wasn’t enough that you couldn’t privately text this to Kendrick, but you had to publicize it as well? Why do people need to see this? You had a standout performance at the Grammys and you married some couples which was kind of cool, but it kind of begs us to ask – what exactly is Macklemore looking for? Another pat on the back? Some more praise and additional respect from fans saying that he acknowledged that maybe he didn’t deserve Best Rap Album, but he’s telling Kendrick that in a personal text and needs the entire world to see it?

I like what Macklemore stands for and he’s done work this year, but this was in poor taste and I didn’t like it.

It’s almost like we can always expect something a little outrageous and whimsical from Jennifer Lawrence at these kinds of events. We’re okay with it.

Instagram Unveils In-App Private Messaging

Snapchat has something to worry about today because Instagram is now allowing users to send private messages within the app with their new feature called “Instagram Direct.” You will be able to send 1:1 pictures, videos, and text. The feature is currently available for iPhone and Android with no word yet on a release date  for the Windows Phone. Womp womp.

Users can only send private messages to people who follow them. If a user attempts to send a private message to someone who doesn’t follow them that person can then decide whether or not they want to see the message. Private messages can be sent to one or many users.

High quality images with filters sent via Instagram over Snapchat? Count me in.

Halloween has come and gone and November has quickly followed! To celebrate the first of November yesterday, we celebrated with the arrival of red cups at Starbucks! Coincidentally, I knew that this would happen and decided to match my outfit in the morning.

Much excitement, y’all.

Seattle Trying to Be San Francisco

Yesterday, I had what we call a “Seattle moment.” I threw on my flannel, listened to The Head and the Heart album and grabbed my usual at the nearby Starbucks. Actually, yesterday was kind of a big deal because it was the day the barista finally acknowledged me as a regular. I love when this happens. Since I’ve moved, I haven’t really missed Seattle other than the food and like you know – friends and family. I didn’t even miss it yesterday, but internally something in me was longing for Seattle. So when I came home to catch up on my tweets and Instagrams I saw that Seattle had gone through some kind of a fog ordeal and that’s when it hit me. Seattle and I were in sync yesterday. We were thinking of each other.
