You actually spend way less time on Instagram each day than you thought
*Logs back on*
“Rise and Instagram,” as they always say. Just me? Cool.
There’s nothing better than arriving late to work because you’ve pushed your morning shower back in order to spend a few extra minutes lying in bed and living vicariously through the online lives of people you may or may not actually know.
And then there’s the commute to work, scrolling between morning meetings, lunch breaks, the before-bed scroll, and none of that take into account posting and coming up with captions and filters. So yeah, if my life depended on it, I’d feel comfortable saying I spend upwards of two hours a day on the ‘gram.

This new paid feature (that's right, you have to pay for this), you can now enable an option that blocks men from messaging first, leaving initiating the…

Why are these girls so hot
by Ari Bines
The phrase "beauty is pain" always brings to mind the first time I waxed my eyebrows. My eyes teared, I screamed when the hair was yanked, and yet I continue to put myself in repeated agony every few weeks. But now I've been inspired (also officially too broke to pluck), and am allowing the baby…
