Thoughts on Instagram and Bloggers


instagram, by far my favorite form of social media out there…i’ve recently set up TNB on the platform and have followed a LOT of bloggers. word on the street is that this is how you “network” these days. anyways, i’ve observed A LOT over the past couple of weeks of ‘gramming…specifically the following:

apparently a lot of people are filthy rich and can just travel and shop 24/7, where does this money come from? do you work?

people eat out A LOT and yet they stay very thin, model like creatures, how?!

who is taking these photos of you?! seriously, you’re basically modeling in them. did you hire a photographer?

how much do you spend on flowers a week, they are beautiful displays in every photo you take. do you have a personal garden in your apt? house?

so you just ate ice cream and are now hitting the gym. did you get a stomach ache? did you really eat that ice cream?

why is your life so fabulous and i’m here living paycheck to paycheck? #SOS

if you find any answers to the above, can you please shoot me an email? inquiring minds would LOVE to know.

HOW TO: Splitting the Check

dinner party

there’s nothing i love more than a nice dinner out with friends. that is, until the bill comes. and i realize that my ‘foodie’ friends “share” tactic is going to cost a fortune. sure if the food was divided evenly among friends then no worries, split 50/50. however, what happens if you weren’t that hungry and only had an app or if one of your friends got a little too cocktail happy?

solution: ‘cash rules everything around me.’ no seriously. don’t be embarrassed if everyone agrees on splitting and you are insistent on dropping cash. in the long run, you win. TGIF!

Weekend Vibes

largei have two birthday dinners to attend this weekend. good bye paycheck. le sigh.
