Why I won't be turning on your Instagram post notifications

Instagram Algorithm Change | Turn on Notifications


Everyone is going batshit crazy over the new Instagram algorithm, and I'll admit, I was pretty pissed off when I first heard about it too. But I am now so bored of my feed being clogged up with 'turn on my notifications' posts, so I thought I would tell you why I will not be turning on post notifications for your Instagram...

First of all, let's go over some of the key changes to Instagram. The feed will be shifting to a more Facebook like approach, and we shouldn't be too surprised since Facebook own Instagram. I don't mean you'll be bombarded by Candy Crush invites btw, it just means posts will be shown out of chronological order in some cases and feeds will be more tailored to show you what you are likely to be interested in based on your current activity. So if you're worried about missing Harry Styles' black and white photo's or Liam Payne's selfies with Cheryl, you probably won't, because if you're into that then it's likely that you've double tapped, or stalked their profiles enough for Instagram to realise you want to see them. The idea is that we can't be on Instagram all day, so they want to show us the things we like seeing, every time we log on.

One of the most frustrating things when you're building your social community is losing followers. Especially when you've just hit a milestone! Let's discuss how to keep your followers, so you can keep that social empire thriving.

1. Be relevant

Make sure the content you are posting is relevant to your brand and will interest the people following you. Posting irrelevant tweets or content is a sure fire way to lose followers.

Favourite spring beauty products for 2016

Favourite spring beauty products for 2016

I love it when spring arrives. Not only does the world start looking a little more beautiful, it means I can change up my makeup and skincare routine from winter to spring. So, it's time to talk about my favourite Spring beauty products for 2016.

I love to go for more flawless and girly looks with lots of pastel colours as opposed to the edgier and darker looks I go for in winter. My skincare routine changes too, as I ease up on the heavier, more hydrating moisturisers and go for something a little lighter. I've been compiling a huge list of my favourite spring beauty products to share with you.

Some of these have been around for a while and some are new beauty products for 2016! Take a look at what I'll be using this Spring below and if you see anything you fancy, just click on it and the link will take you straight to the supplier offering the best deal that I have found online!

Blogging with a full time job: tips and tricks

Blogging with a full time job

If you've been blogging for a while, like me, you'll have read all the blogging tips posts on what you need to do to make your blog a success. It involves, constant content creation, spending an awful lot of time promoting your posts on social media and various other outlets as well as other social media engagement to build up your community. We all know what will help us improve our blog readership, but for me, there's one thing standing in the way; my job. I'd love to spend every hour under the sun writing for and promoting my blog, but I spend too much of my time at work. So it's time for a new kind of post; advice for blogging with a full time job.

Although the end goal is to make blogging my job, I can't just quit in order to spend my time making it a success because I need the pay cheque. I have bills to pay and responsibilities, and I'm not sure my landlord will accept good traffic stats in lieu of rent payments. So, I've had to re evaluate how I blog in order to keep it going while I still work my 9-5 and here are my tips for blogging with a full time job.

Running several social media channels for your business can be a time consuming exercise, so to avoid using up all your resource on updating your status or posting tweets, here are a few of the best social media management tools so you can achieve your social media objectives and concentrate on other aspects of your business as well.

Maybelline Push Up Drama Mascara Review

Maybelline Push Up Drama Mascara

Maybelline Push Up Drama Mascara (£7.99 at Feel Unique) is the latest addition to Maybelline's 'The Falsies' range and boasts that it can give you amazing long lasting volume for your lashes. I love a dramatic lash look, so this sounded right up my street. I'm a huge mascara fan, so I was excited to see how it compared to my current collection.

The new brush is designed to push up your lashes with it's cup shaped bristles. I can't see how they are cup shaped, but maybe I'm not looking hard enough! I do like how this brush applies mascara to your lashes. It helps spread the product easily and without clumps.
