Have y’all heard about the Instagram update? Apparently they switched up their algorithm, so now instead of seeing your feed in reverse chronological order (like you always have), Instagram is now going to show you what it THINKS you want to see – aka “popular” and sponsored posts. Unfortunately this is a common practice on social media channels – this happened a few years back at Facebook, and then Pinterest followed a short time later. You’ll see less of what you want and more of what’s been paid for. Irritating, am I right?
Yesterday you probably saw a serious influx of Instagram posts from brands and bloggers you follow telling you to “turn on post notifications”. If you’re like me, that is just NOT an option. I cannot be bothered with getting constant notifications on my phone – so annoying!! If you’d like to keep seeing my Instagram posts but would prefer not to sign up for notifications, all you need to do is continue engaging and interacting with my content on Instagram. Keep “liking” and commenting – the accounts you engage with most are what will help guide Instagram to the content you want to see in your feed!

Ooh la la! I love these red and gold pieces! I’ve been eyeing a bright red IRO dress for a weeks and I think it’s finally time to pull the trigger.
Instagram wrote later on that they are not doing that kind of update.. kinda confusing. x
I want everything on this list. Also, the Instagram change is so annoying! But I am with you – turning on notifications is just not for me, either.
It’s like did this happen or didn’t this happen on insta!? LOVE all the red!
Love those pops of red! Thanks so much for sharing our gold striped vase, too!
