Employ An Insta Husband
Let’s hear it for the unsung heroes of the blogging world: the boyfriends, the husbands, the amateur photographers. Otherwise known as ‘human selfie sticks’, this underrated group is every blogger’s right-hand man. So much so that there’s an Instagram account dedicated to supporting them (@ig.husband, if you were wondering). In fact, they were behind the Instagram husband video that went viral in 2016.
Even celebs are getting in on the action. Former US President Barack Obama has been given the title since standing down, and last month Ryan Reynolds secured his own status as Blake Lively’s official Insta husband after snapping a series of photos of Blake posing on the beach (left). Seriously cute behaviour, guys.
But while you might already have or be tempted to employ your very own other half to snap away, you need to remember two things; firstly, their camera skills may never live up to your exacting standards – just look at Ryan’s blurry shots of Blake. Secondly, it can seriously affect your relationship. In a recent US study, it was found that 25 per cent of all arguments the subjects reported were something related to social media. As Fashion Assistant Bridie Wilkins knows only too well..
We would argue constantly
‘Behind every cute girl on Instagram is a guy like me…’
