The launch tile for Instagram's latest update.
Instagram introduces a new posting option that will transform the way you curate your feed.
Instagram just announced its latest update, and it’s a big one. You’ll soon be able to share multiple photos and videos in a single post. A post can now act as a mini-album that documents anything from a party to a vacation, with users scrolling through to see it unfold.
How is this different from Instagram Stories, you ask? Unlike Stories, which disappear after 24 hours, these posts will remain on your feed.
Some might see this as the answer to repetitive posts (no more uploading the umpteenth party pic with the caption “Sorry, last one”) as well as a way to curate posts around a theme (just imagine a step-by-step makeup tutorial from Kylie Jenner in one post.)
A profile with Instagram's latest feature (note the new icon on the first post)
A new icon will appear which will allow you to select up to 10 photos and videos for a single post. You can filter and edit photos in a batch, or individually, as well as change the order of photos. Captions, location likes and comments apply to all the photos and videos in a post, but you’ll be able to tag friends individually. You won’t be able to remove individual photos or videos from within the post once it’s live.
Instagram's new multiple selection option
The update rolls out today for iPhone and Android and will go global within a few weeks.
It only took three years, but finally we're getting some intel on how actor / mere mortal George Clooney met human rights lawyer / bridal pantsuit wearer Amal Alamuddin.
Since the announcement of their impending twins (congrats again guys!) the informational floodgates on the couple have opened, which is why we're getting this gem of a "meet cute" story straight from the lips of George himself.
As told to David Letterman, the two met when Amal visited Lake Como as a friend of a friend. George "called and wrote" for months before Amal would go out with him, which you know, seems about right.
The chicest way to wash your face.
Long hailed by Frenchwomen and makeup artists for its ability to cleanse skin without stripping it dry, micellar water is going next level. The no-rinse makeup-erasing liquid (teeny drops of suspended oil bond to pigments, oil and dirt) was birthed in France in the 1920s and has finally gotten a 21st-century tweak. Here are three new adaptations:
Sephora Collection Micellar Cleansing Water in Charcoal taps buzzy ingredient activated charcoal, known for its capacity to draw out debris from the epidermis for an ultra-deep clean. ($11), sephora.com.
Garnier SkinActive Micellar Water Wipes are fragrance-free and promise to clean skin and remove last night’s Altuzarra-inspired smudgy eye. ($10), walmart.ca.
NeoStrata Detoxifying Micellar Gel contains a plant extract called “celldetox” that helps reinforce the process of cell detoxification (and translates into cleaner skin and a faster uptake of your anti-aging serum). ($22), well.ca.
Emma Thompson had one of the more heart-wrenching story lines in the original Love Actually, and in a way, that's connected to why she says she won't be participating in the Christmas classic's upcoming sequel.
You'll recall that Thompson played a woman who finds out that her husband is being unfaithful right around the holidays. That character is played by the late Alan Rickman, and it's because of him that Thompson says it just doesn't feel right to reprise her role.
"It's too soon," says the British actress, who says it was a joint decision between her and the show's writer, Richard Curtis. "[He] wrote to me and said, ‘Darling, we can’t write anything for you because of Alan,’ and I said, ‘No, of course, it would be sad, too sad.’"
Thompson notes that while the sequel (really a short film) is for a British charity called comic relief, "...there isn’t much comic relief in the loss of our dear friend, really, only just over a year ago".
The short will air on British television in March.
