My Top 10 Instagram Fails

I think everyone thinks they are THE BEST at social media.

Like, I have some pretty fire tweets.

My Instagrams are pretty punny on the regular.

And I have mastered the art of the Facebook share.

But, occasionally, I go back and look at what I thought was ~~~FiRe ~~~ years (months) ago and can't help but think .... Jayne what were you thinking.

Why did you need to post that ? Did anyone need to see that? Did anyone want to see that?

The answer to all of these is a resounding no.

So before I go through my social media and delete them all to save myself from cringing mercilessly, and to make my Instagram feed more cohesive I thought I would share them with you all.

I make mistakes so you don't have too.

Do as I say, not as I do.

Without further ado, my biggest Instagram regrets:

1) The bathroom mirror selfie

If I didn't want you to see the coffee stickers on my phone, why post the pic ?? Why is my head tilted?? Was I thinking too hard ?? I was at MUN after all.. 

2) The "Look at how casually I am showing you my blundstones" pic 

Oh I'm so casual, these are my new blundstones, but don't look at them, look at my average sweater. That's the focal point of the picture FOR SURE. 

Pretty sure that is also the only two times I have worn that sweater, also and I think it just made me feel artsy.

3. Look at me here just snuggling my dog.

This picture definitely has nothing to do with the fresh dye I obviously had.

4. I'm a hippy at heart

This is just a whole lot of unnecessary in one pic. Like, I literally only put my headband like that for the picture. I don't walk around like that.

Why did this happen?

5. #BlondeHairDOCare

Evidentially, I do care about the blonde hair otherwise I wouldn't have made a selfie literally only to show off my blonde hair.

Also, that angle is causing me physical pain.

6. Deep quote + A different hair colour!!!

Genuinely surprised I didn't caption this "Brunette Hair don't care" but I digress.

Just your average girl, with her average inspiring quotes, inspiring the world.

Also, using too much exposure.

7. Look at my iPhone and all the unread texts I am too cool to answer !!

If you're going to post a picture which shows your messages - YOU BETTER BELIEVE there will be some unread messages. I'm in such high demand - how could I be expected to answer them all?

8. I am an athlete, see how athletic I am?

Healthy snack and all. And some numbing cream. Could we need anything else?

Yes. This could have been better. Or not done at all.

9. The 1st tattoo mistake

I think out of all of these, this is the one I understand the most. It looks infected and gross, but I was too excited about my new tattoo to a) wait until it healed a bit to show it to the world and b) wait to get a pic from a good angle.

I just had to put it up, inflammation and all.

It is still my favorite tattoo though.

10) This is a silly selfie but I am still so cute!!!

There were so many that I could have tossed into the #10 spot, but I think this one made me cringe the hardest. I can hear the thought running through my head now I'm going to take a picture where I look so bored but still super cute! Look how effortless I am.

Enjoy these! I am doing an Instagram purge - this post hurt my soul.

And also, these post go from 2013 - 2017, so I haven't learned ...


  1. Love the vulnerability of this post!

    1. Thanks so much!! I really try to go deeper than just what I'm loving posts and the regular blog stuff, so thank you for noticing :)

  2. I loved this post! I can relate to all of it!

  3. Great post showing off some of the stuff you thought at the time! We all have them :) I'm yet to delete and Instagram post though and my feed is full of crap


    1. Ugh, don't we though!! At the time I thought all of these posts were BOMB.

      I finished deleting a bunch of old ones, and I feel so much better. I deleted over 200! My feed feels much sleeker and more relatable now!

  4. Lmfao! I feel ALL of this on a personal level. I went back to my like 2011 IG posts and was like, "WTF was wrong with me?"

    1. Right ??? The amount of times I said "WHY WOULD I DO THAT" while writing this post was astounding

  5. Lmbo! I actually like the tattoo post though. Thanks for sharing
