#KeepInstagramChronological








Hello everyone and I hope you had such an amazing Easter - spending time with family and eating lots of chocolate! Well today this is my 80th post which is just beyond crazy, it feels like forever since I was blogging about my 50th post!

I had planned this post on something completely different but I decided to change it at the last minute on Instagram. I do apologise to you all especially the ones who don't have Instagram or hardly use it.
It is something that Instagram have decided to change and its going to happen tomorrow. As many of you will know who are bloggers or just people that have an account that your feed will be changing and they have decided that Instagram will have have the best posts on your feed which I find annoying and I really don't get why they have to change it just because millions of people use the app! Of course so many people like myself are NOT happy with it and everyone has been using the hash tag #KeepInstagramChronological and saying to their followers to tap where the three dots are on your account and click on Turn on Notifications if you like the person's posts.

By doing this it means people will get notifications when you post so people can then go and like it or leave a comment which you usually do. Its annoying for those people like myself who either are a part time blogger or even a full time blogger or even just someone who has lots of followers.
It could mean that our followers won't like our posts because their feeds will have other posts on them.

I even put this in my Instagram bio - to tap the turn on notifications please. Its really stupid and the only reason why they are doing it because Instagram is so popular and they will be making lots and lots of money.

Do you agree with Instagram or like myself who doesn't?

Apparently there will be an update so people are saying please don't update and make sure you turn on the notifications to your favourite accounts!

Thank you for all the support and to everyone who does follow me on Instagram. I hope you continue to enjoy my posts and keep following me.

To The 90's We Go.

Good morning, good afternoon or even good evening where ever you are in the world. It got me thinking the other day, I always talk about the era's I sadly was not here on the Earth and yet I hardly ever talk about the 90's, the year I was born in and the people who made the 90's such an incredible era to be in. Here are three people who I absolutely loved in the 90's. Kate Moss, Leonardo Dicaprio, Johnny Depp, The Spice Girls and Jennifer Aniston. Of course there are so many more but its impossible to blog about them all! So lets celebrate some of the stars from the 90's shall we? 










Here are just a few photos of icon's from the 90's. I hope you all enjoyed this post. This brought back to me the Spice Girls days and how amazing they were!

During a photoshoot with Elle Magazine, she met the legendary Coco Chanel who the young Dane to change her name to the catchy Anna Karina,

The Style of Jane Birkin

 
Thank goodness Valentines Day is over! I hope you all had a lovely day whether you are in a relationship or single like myself. Although I actually did a have a good day (Click to see my latest post) please feel free to click on the link and have a look. I am so surprised how many views it got, I was not expecting that at all so thank you so much to you all who took the time out to read it! 
Jane Birkin, yes she is that beautiful woman on the top of my post. I only came about her on Instagram and I absolutely love her style. Jane's style was and still is 'cool'. Birkin's see-through dresses, skirts so short you could see her underwear - at a time when most woman in the public eye were wearing conture, Jane was the original street-style star, who wore what hip. yoing Parisian women were also wearing. Did you know that forty years on, she's just as relevant, and no less an inspiration for hip young woman today. Alexa Chung told Fashionista that she had 'really just been ripping off Jane Birkin'.


As you can see from these pictures Birkin was all about what looked cool, regardless of how, y'know, practical it was. In the 60's (this was the days before designer handbags) one of her most recognisable style staples was a wicker basket, which she carried everywhere either for a swanky event or a stroll in the park. Apparently on a flight from Paris to London in 1981, she was attempting to put her basket in the overhead locker (why is there never enough room?!) and all the contents fell out. Which led to..


I hope you enjoyed reading this short post on the beautiful Jane Birkin. If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen I've been posting quite a few pictures of her on my feed.
