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.
The products we're lusting after for spring 2017.
This new take on Miu Miu’s debut fragrance keeps lily of the valley and the patchouli-like Akigalawood as top and base notes while adding a white floral heart for a scent meant to evoke the first day of spring. Miu Miu L’Eau Bleue Eau de Parfum Spray ($105 for 50 mL), at sephora.com.
When Target left Canada, so did beloved brand Pixi. Now it’s back (hurrah!), and for the first time, skincare is available in addition to cosmetics. Our pick: this just-launched physical (sugar cane) and chemical (lactic acid) exfoliant. Pixi Beauty Peel & Polish ($34), at shoppersdrugmart.ca.
Organic mongongo oil, high in moisturizing fatty acids and derived from the South African manketti tree, is the star in this blend of fast-absorbing oils. Apply strategically (on wind-chapped cheeks, for instance) as the weather changes from cold to, well, slightly less cold. Physicians Formula Organic Wear Bright Booster Oil Elixir ($20), at shoppersdrugmart.ca.
If you’ve maxed out on Millennial-coloured products (you know the shade), may we suggest this powdery hue as an alternative? OPI Infinite Shine in Suzi Without a Paddle ($16.95), at chatters.ca.
Two satin (peachy beige and gold) and two matte (caramel beige and pinky red) shades comprise Chanel makeup artist Lucia Pica’s face palette for spring. Chanel Coco Code Blush Harmony ($70), at chanel.com.
This hue is our favourite of the 10 shades of seriously-long-wearing liquid lipstick and gloss. CoverGirl Outlast All-Day Colour + Gloss in Coral Crave ($12), at walmart.ca.
Holding a can of dry shampoo close to your scalp and spraying will not do you any favours. Batiste applicators are designed to disperse product evenly from 30 centimetres (think half an arm’s length) away, and particles are sized to penetrate the hair shaft, nixing oil right from the roots. Batiste Dry Shampoo in Cherry ($9) at walmart.ca.
The latest foundation from Giorgio Armani marries the technology of the brand’s oil-based Maestro Fusion with the long-wearing pigments in its liquid eyeshadows for a high-coverage formula that feels like a serum. Giorgio Armani Power Fabric Foundation in 3.5 ($70), at sephora.com.
Beyoncé on The Formation World Tour in 2016.
Worst. Day. Ever.
We'd hate to be customer service at Coachella right now. Organizers of the music festival have confirmed that Beyoncé will no longer be headlining the concert this April, breaking the hearts of the Beyhive.
The singer, who is expecting twins with hubby Jay Z, is "following advice of doctors to keep a less rigorous schedule," organizers said in a statement, adding that the Bey will perform in 2018 instead. (Setting calendar countdown now.)
To cheer us all up, last night Bey posted this Insta photo of her and Blue Ivy with the deer Snapchat filter from the NBA All-Star Game.
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.
