This Instagram DM hack is about to save you a lot of drunken embarrassment
For those of you who love to drunk-text your ex
by Jenn Ficarra
As the resident babe Instagram guru, I am back with another life-changing Instagram "hack" that will significantly decrease your humiliation by 85 percent.
Recently, I had made the mistake of drinking too many glasses of Pinot Noir and clicking over to a former hook-ups Instagram. I thought "Hey, why not slide into those DMs?"
Big mistake. Huge!
The next morning I clicked back and saw that he had yet to read my humiliating message. I was blessed. And for a moment, I thought that it would be wonderful if this message could just disappear. I don't know what compelled me to do it but I held down my message when suddenly, an option to "unsend" appeared. I clicked it and saved my soul.
Yes, you're reading that right — you can unsend Instagram DMs.
instagram lets you unsend DMs and I have never felt so blessed

Instagram really in 2027 with the unsend button for their DMs.

So often we are forced to live in a world where we have to deal with our consequences but now, Instagram has made it so that we never have to pay the piper. Instead, we can erase our mistakes as if they never happened at all.
That celeb you sent a nude to? Unsend!
Your ex whom you sent a long, drunk message to? Unsend!
Your mom who you accidentally sent a lewd meme to? Unsend!
Now, the sky is the limit. We can play with fire and avoid getting burned. We can take a risk and then take it back the minute we realize we made a massive mistake.
Instagram letting us unsend DMs is the gift that keeps on giving. It is what we, as a collective, deserve in these times of turmoil and despair.
God bless you, Instagram, and you're enabling of our hot mess behavior. Couldn't do it without you. Happy Unsending!
Every girl needs a trap phone
Even if you’re not actually, y’know, trapping

I have this friend. For the sake of our story, let's call her…Janet Vasquez. I'm not changing her name to protect the innocent because she thrives on attention (one of the many reasons we're friends) and because she's definitely not innocent. Me and Dammit Janet at a bar circa 2011, moments before she ran away…
BEHOLD: Pumpkin Spice Booze, because Pumpkin Spice Lattes are over and they haven’t invented Pumpkin Spice Cocaine yet
Catch me snorting nutmeg

There is nothing wrong with a Pumpkin Spice Latte. Like astrology, Lush bath bombs, and any novel written by a woman, PSLs are in a special club of things that are objectively good and fun but hated on by dudes and girls who haven't yet realized that dudes who hate those things are garbage. But…
