#INSTANEWS: The world’s most Instagrammable coffee cups

By Jessica Vince

Oh man, how is it nearly October? I barely registered it was September. But I’m actually looking forward to the cosiness of Autumn, crunching in orangey leaves, drinking pumpkin-spiced everything. Yep, give me all the cliches.

If you’ve been swamped by a hefty workload this week and haven’t had your dose of Instagram newness, fret not. I’ve got a quick-fix round-up of the key stories making headlines this week to save you the scrolling…

✩ The pressure of maintaining a polished social media presence has lead to a rise in users having two accounts: one for filtered selfies and pretty photos of food, the other reserved for sharing candid shots with close friends. Do you lead a double Instagram life?  [guardian]

✩ I do love a new find and I’m currently obsessed with @coffeecupsoftheworld, which catalogs the best takeout coffee cups from indie cafés around the world. Think Frida Kahlo stamps, psychedelic swirls and kitschy cartoons [instagram]

✩ Once you’ve noticed it, you’ll see it *everywhere*. I am, of course, talking about this blue and white Zara coat that is so ubiquitous, it’s got its own Instagram account [metro]

THE MOST INSTAGRAMMABLE FOODIE SPOTS

✩ The whole world is on tenterhooks waiting to hear Harry Styles’ foray into solo life. Now Hazza has teased his followers with three blank squares, but what do they MEAN? I don’t have the foggiest [thedebrief]

✩ Not only does Selena Gomez have the most amount of Instagram followers, she’s just broken a record by hitting a staggering 100 MILLION! That’s 7 million more followers than the entire population of Vietnam. Sheesh. [popcrush]

✩ One writer has described Instagram Stories as “effectively Snapchat for the middle-aged middle classes”. You only balk because you know it’s true [huffingtonpost]

THE BEAUTY BRANDS MADE FAMOUS ON INSTAGRAM

✩ Disabling Instagram comments is becoming more common among celebrities. Rather than directly addressing the controversy surrounding her recent ballet shoot for Vogue, Kendall Jenner sent a clear message by removing all comments on her account. Take that, haters [latimes]

✩ And finally, I leave you with Lupita Nyong’o (or, rather, her alter ego “Troublemaker”) brilliantly rapping in celebration of reaching 3 million followers. There really isn’t anything she can’t do…
