So then, what’s is this 23-year-old’ssecret to social media success?Apparently, her social media strategy is a lot more simple than you mightthink.

Gomez recently told The HollywoodReporter,

It comes in a moment when I capture something happening, and I go, ‘Oh, that would be great for Instagram. I should post it.’ I know it’s boring, but that’s genuinely what I do.

The humble celebrevealed that “it wasn’t [her]goal to be the most followed person,” but it seems like Gomez certainly doesn’t mind being the new queen of thesocial media scene.

If you take a peek atGomez’s glorious Instagram feed, you’ll find a collection professional pics, selfies and videos that give followers a glimpse into her busy everyday life.

Whether she’s snapping pics with fans at concerts,postingselfies at the studio or showing the world what she does backstage before a show, Gomez revealed it all just boils down to finding “a good balance of just being 100 percent myself and knowing when to post a really good selfie with good lighting.”

Why You Want Your Ex Back Even Though You Broke Up With Him

Five weeks ago, you broke up with the guy you once thought was “the one.”

The decision wasn’t easy, but at the time there was no question in your mind it was the right one. You were arguing every day, he was more devoted to his Xbox than to you and, most importantly, you just weren’t in love with him anymore.

After tearfully saying “goodbye” while simultaneously handing him a bag of weird T-shirts he had left at your apartment and your houseplant he was strangely attached to, you felt sad but good.

You were single and ready to mingle! You signed up for Tinder, Bumble and OkCupid. You were ready to take the dating world by storm.

Fast forward five weeks. You’re curled up in the fetal position in bed laughing hysterically while watching that one “South Park” episode your ex really loved (that you hated while you were together, by the way).

You’re halfway through a pint of Peanut Butter Cup Ben & Jerry’s (PSA: there’s like 1,500 calories in one of those things), and you really, really miss your ex.

You made the wrong decision, you’re sure of it. You would do anything to get him back, but from the looks of his Instagram photos he’s already moved on.

So, what’s going on with that? Here’s the deal.

Our brains are really good at remembering the good stuff.

When it comes to memory, our brains have something called a “positivity bias,” meaning it’s easier for our memories to recall that time you and your ex laughed until your cried or cuddled and drank wine during a snowstorm than it is to remember that huge screaming match you had at your sister’s wedding.

We’re conditioned to forget pain, at least to a certain extent. If you truly remembered how painful that half marathon you ran last spring was, would youreallywant to run another one?

Didn’t think so. Apply that thought process to the warm fuzzy feelings you’re currently having about your ex.


Those dates you were so excited about kind of suck.

The truth is, it’s hard to find a genuine connection with another person. Whether it’s over dinner, a drink or Netflix, it’s just not easy.

Even if you and your ex weren’t right for each other, you probably connected pretty well and were definitely super comfortable around each other.

So if sitting across from a stranger who you’re not that attracted to while sharing boring work stories isn’t doing it for you, we don’t blame you.

And wereallydon’t blame you if it makes you miss the easy conversations you used to have with your ex.

One day you will meet someone who makes you laugh as hard as your ex once did and who you’re crazy attracted to. Until then, you’ll just have to grin and bear the awkward dates.


You want what you can’t have.

You know that moment when you go on a diet and can no longer eat cake and cookies and suddenlyallyou want is cake and cookies?

That’s probably what’s happening with your ex. You cut off all contact (good for you — that’s the way to do it!) and suddenly he has never seemed more appealing.

Think about it like this: Eating that forbidden cookie would probably feel great in the moment, but afterward you would probably feel pretty bad about it. The same thing would happen if you called or texted your ex.

So don’t do it.


They look great in their photos.

Were those biceps there two months ago? Definitely not. Your ex didn’t even belong to a gym to take selfies at!

Not only is he looking great, but since your breakup your ex seems to be having a blast. His Instagram is full of photos of him with his friends and, even worse, groups of gorgeous girls you’ve never seen before.

There’s always a possibility that your ex really is having a blast, but let’s be real: He just go dumped.

He’s probably partying a lot and then going home and playing all the songs you used to listen to together. Come on!

As for those gym selfies, maybe he’s channeling his breakup angst into a new fitness routine. Or maybe he’s purposely trying to make you jealous.

Whatever the case, please unfollow him on Instagram right now.


You miss your best friend.

When you had a boyfriend, you had a built-in buddy to do everything with. He was part of your routine.

You loved sharing a few beers while staying in and watching Netflix on Friday nights, and you loved your Saturday morning runs and trips to the farmers’ market.

It’s hard to lose such a close friend, so surround yourself with girlfriends who will help distract you and lift you up.

Fill your weekends with activities that make you happy, and rejoice you no longer have to spend your Sunday afternoons drinking beer and watching football (unless that’s your thing, in which case, more power to you!).

One day you’ll find someone who is so much better for you than your ex ever was.

Until then, just remember: It’s called a breakup because it’s broken. Please don’t text him.

Starbucks’ Gorgeous Summer ‘Pink Drink’ Is Here To Dominate Your Instagram Feed

Starbucks has always been really good about listening to its customers.

The companyknows exactly what we want, and itknows when we want it.

The coffee chain heard us loud and clear last summer when we all went absolutely nuts over the Pink Drink.

The Pink Drink originally debutedas an option on Starbucks infamous Secret Menu.

But now, the coffee empire announced the drink has officially landed a spot on the year-round menu.

Itis basically a twist on theStrawberry Acai Refresher, but its mixed with coconut milk instead of water, and its topped with tasty chunks of strawberries.

Its as beautiful as it is delicious.

Instagram


You no longer need to worry about sounding extra AF when you ask for coconut milk instead of water

Instagram


because the Pink Drink is its own glorious concoction of creamy, pink sweetness, its available year-round.

Instagram


Your Insta feed is going to look gorgeous this summer.

Instagram


*so much pink*

Instagram


No need to be embarrassed, Brian. The Pink Drink is for EVERYONE.

Instagram


There may not be any caffeine in it, but theres definitely enough sugar in there for a solid 2 pm pick-me-up.

Instagram


, and imagine how delicious those strawberries taste when youre done with the drink.

Instagram


YUM.

Instagram


Why isnt this me right now?

Instagram


But please: Keep it away from your very expensive laptop. Yall are wild.

Instagram


If being basic is bad, then I never want to be good.

Instagram


I just want this to be the color palette of my whole life.

Instagram

The Pink Drink is obviously tasty enough to enjoyon its own, but imagine sipping one of those bad boys while having an equally scrumptious meal from Starbucks new Mercato Menu.

Youre practically going to be bowing down to the baristas for blessing you with so much deliciousness at once (as if we dont already worship them).

Keep killin the game, Starbucks. Well always love you.
