Beauty and the Instagram Beast
I alluded to this post last week on my Instagram stories but I wanted to flesh out the conversation I started there. We’ll get into Beauty and the “Instagram” Beast but…The premise is this: when bloggers recommend other bloggers to follow I’ve noticed something. They all look the same. I don’t want to shame a certain body type because there is nothing wrong with being a size 2 or a size 20. Let’s just say the women they recommend to follow all look the same.
Don’t get me wrong, their outfits are cute and their style is great but my problem is with the lack of diversity, the lack of representation, the lack of different body types. We’ve all bemoaned the changes in Instagram and I don’t want to beat a dead horse but I will say this before leaving it be.
