Facebook has been doing this with messenger for years. You can choose to opt in or out of texting “read receipts.” So why is this any different? The differentiating factor is that with texting and with Facebook, you choose who is in your network and who you let in. You can do this with a private Instagram account as well, but for those who are public, you run the risk of more dangerous territories. The good news is that your activity status is only shown to people you follow or engage with through DM’s so this won’t be public information to everyone that follows you. A tweet I saw yesterday said that this would be more concerning for Instagram accounts that may have stalkers though.
For those of you are uncomfortable with this feature or just want to slide a little bit more under the radar once in awhile, you can easily change this in your settings.
From your profile page, click on the settings gear and scroll down. Under settings and right above “Support” you’ll find “Show Activity Status.” Just swipe that bad boy to the left to keep yourself hidden from showing the last time you were active.

I’ve been a fan of the Jonas Brothers since the very beginning so when the trio announced in 2013 that they were breaking up, I was crushed. It wasn’t unreasonable decision. Kevin was married and starting a family. Nick was pursuing his own ventures and Joe seemed like he was doing the same.
Earlier this week, the Jonas Brothers Instagram account revived itself. It’s interesting to see that at the time of their breakup, they were just at 57.1K followers. Now, four days later, they have 235K followers because everyone is expecting a comeback! Maybe they brought back the account just as an archive, but maybe it means something more. I, for one, would love them to do a reunion tour.

My favorite part of this year’s best nine is that these are nine different events! I know I’ve always sided with Lo from Laguna Beach when she said that “every day is a fashion show,” but in these cases, I just happened to get lucky. Some of these were taken on just regular work days or to brunch, but other times they were to Jodie’s wedding this past spring or my first work outing my very first week in Los Angeles. I’m grateful for these memories, but even more for these outfits! I’ll be writing another post soon on my favorite outfits from this year so it will be interesting to see if any of those overlap with these.
Shoutout to all my Instagram husbands and wives! I wouldn’t be where I am without you and at the end of the day, it’s very cool to see these nine as the most picked favorites.

The first part of this caption got cut off, but it says “Happy Thanksgiving.” The most important part of this caption, however, is that s/o to Harvey. Oh my goodness. I love Uma Thurman and I feel like this message is almost as if it’s coming from her character in Kill Bill. We can’t wait to see what she’ll be addressing next, but whatever the case, I think every woman can fully agree with and stand by Uma on this one.
No amount of rehab, money, or # of apologies will prevent us from forgetting what you all did.

I love the internet. I stumbled across this “thing” this evening that lets you insert your Instagram handle and features your photos in a dramatic short film. I found it to be pretty comical and at times, maybe a little even ridiculous, but still all in good fun. I was actually surprised at how some instances could have been pretty accurate too. Try it yourself here!

Looking back on last fall, I feel pretty fortunate that I had a chance to travel to so many cities in one run with a career that I really enjoy. Growing up, I never traveled very extensively, but I always wanted a job that would not only take me to places, but allow me to see the cities that I was traveling to. When you’re thinking about a career before you even have one, you envision what your life might be like to have one of these jobs. Luckily, my busy travel season is just that – a season. Last year, I met someone who was previously a consultant and spent 4-5 days out of the week traveling for work. No, thank you. 🙂
This past fall, I spent nearly two and a half months “on the road” visiting Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Houston, and Boston (twice!) Here are some of the photos I took from these trips; most of them just include the things that I ate, which as you can imagine…were a lot of carbs!
Philly was just the most darling. I really only got two days here, but I wish I could’ve stayed longer! What an incredibly beautiful city with so much charm to it.
