In case you hadn’t noticed, we’re in the middle of a heatwave.
Legs are out, skirts are short, and it’s officially Pimms time. Basically, life is wonderful. But what would be the point of enjoying all of this glorious sunshine if you couldn’t document it all on Instagram?
When the sun’s shining, we get even more tap-happy when it comes to social media.
Hot dog legs, selfies in the park, that first ice-lolly of summer – these milestone ocassions all NEED to be shared with the world.
Soon, our Instagram feeds are awash with who-can-post-the-better-cherry-blossom-snap or does-my-bbq-look-better-than-yours?
