#fitspo #cleaneating #glutenfree #lifegoals are all terms we’ve become familiar with.
And if monotonous hashtags like these aren’t painful enough, Instagram has just this week introduced new selfie filters. That’s right; more flower crowns and animal ears for us to cringe over. Now, *ahem* there’s a good chance we are all guilty of a few of the pet-peeves on our list, so let’s consider this a subtle hint to just. Stop. K Thanks.
#1 The bathroom selfie. We’ve all done it. Good light and dirty towels go hand in hand, obvs.
#2 Filter on filter on filter until your nose is blended into your hairline.
#3 Flower crowns. Keep them on Snapchat, plz.
#4 Coachella. No more tassels or unitards until 2018, TF.
#5 Coachella TBTs every week until the next one.
#6 #foodie snobs and their $19 smashed avo. Every damn day.
#7 The obligatory airport flat lay. Designer handbag (or manbag), latte and very obvs Business Class boarding pass (YES PEOPLE, THAT SAYS A1). You redeemed it on Frequent Flyers, but whatevs #bragstagram.
#8 Then comes the plane pic. Wowser, you nabbed a window seat, congratulations. #worldtraveller
#9 Caption: “Big things coming”, “best news ever” #staytuned. You’ve been making posts like this for years now. We are still waiting.#wannabepreneur
#10 #nofilter #nomakeup #wokeuplikethis also means #cryingforattention. We can smell the X-Pro filter a mile away.
#11 Network marketers.
#12 Green juice pic. Congrats, you are our #fitspo. Let’s all quickly forgot about the pic you uploaded at 3am smashing a kebab on Caxton St.
#13 Screenshots of your alarm clock. I’M BUSY. I AM IMPORTANT.
#14 The blogger pose. What is that you are looking at off in the distance? Almost as cringe worthy as the fake laugh.
#15 Thankyou *insert fashion label here* for dressing me today. Hey sista, if you paid for it, you don’t need to thank ‘em. #notanambassador
#16 When you upload a pic of your night out and conveniently forget to Facetune your friends. Honestly, we can’t tell.
#17 The gym selfie. Errryday. Babe, lifting iPhones ain’t working out.
#18 Sleeping selfies. Who took this photo? We will never know.
#19 The check-in queen. It’s been 20 minutes and we haven’t seen a check in, where are you?? What are you eating?? We are busting to know.
#20 Photos of the roses that boyfie sent you. Every damn day. Then posting about Tinder and #singlelyf a week later.
#22 Duck Face. We still don’t get this one.
#23 Pet photos. We love ‘em, keep ‘em coming.
#24 Baby photos. We love ‘em, but also please stop.
#25 Motivational captions with questionable relevance to your pic: “As free as the ocean” alongside a perfect shot of your butt at the beach.
#26 Screenshots of text message conversations. You are honestly the first person ever to have a predictive text fail. Really, you are.
