Risking a repeat offender but: I read less online this week yet still found so many great posts that I’m excited to share with you and find out which ones you like best. We have guests around so I’ll keep this intro super short and th focus on all the amazing links below.

    I am going to be 100% honest when I say, “I hate Instagram stories”… Ha. Wait, I am always honest, so no clue why I put a disclaimer. Any who. I hate Instagram stories. I think we are all being so insanely consumed with social media that we forget to actually live our lives. We forget to actually HAVE experiences. Instead, we are DOING THINGS for others. And when I say that, I don’t mean, helping others out, I mean, we are literally doing things so as to “show off” to others. I am not one to do such things. I do in fact live my life. This is why I plan on NOT using IG stories. I will continue to use SnapChat – the MINIMAL amount that I do… Although I will probably delete it within the next month because WHO CARES. I really wish IG would nix this option because I know far too many people are LOVING IT… Ugh. I wish people could just forget their phones at home one day a week and actually LIVE for themselves!

      Talk about a laaaate reply but: bring on the honesty any time. We’re all entitled our own opinion and hey, you’re talking to the girl who never even considered downloading Snapchat so … The reason I included the post here was for those who -do- use Snapchat and were wondering about whether or not to use Instagram stories. By now, I’ve watched only a handful of stories and even then skipped out mid-story because I couldn’t see the added benefit/closer connection to the people. But if others enjoy it: no judgement.

    Happppyyy Sunday to you, beautiful!

    I love how you think because eating the rainbow should DEFINITELY apply to rainbow cheesecakes!

    I’m actually loving instagram stories – but I think that’s because I’ve never had snapchat. It’s a fun way to share little snapshots of our day that aren’t really things that make the blog or our instagram feed! I love looking at other’s stories too because it’s more “real” – you get to see the mundane everyday stuff and not just the pretty flat lays and posed images.

    That said, it definitely doesn’t have me using instagram any more than I did previously – and I think that’s the key! If it’s going to make instagram take over your life, steer clear!
