Social Media Addict

For all of its shortcomings, I really genuinely like social media. I've come to rely on it so much more since we moved up to Kansas City; I love that I can still have glimpses into the lives of my friends and family even though I'm not around. (Although I will say that it is a double-edged sword, because I have also cried after seeing everyone hanging out without me and realizing just how much I miss them!) Here are the platforms I'm using most these days; if you're on any of them, let's connect!

Instagram is by far my favorite social media platform. I don't know what it is about those little photo squares, but I'm addicted. I'm jessica.lafferty.

I try to be as authentic as possible online, but I've often thought that Twitter is probably the most transparent me. I will warn you; there's a fairly high rate of re-tweets from British history accounts. ;) Find me at @jessicae429.

While I try to keep my personal Facebook just for friends and family, I also started a page for the blog so that readers who don't use Bloglovin or other reader services can keep up with posts without having to check in every day. I'm hoping to start featuring posts I love from other websites too--including those from readers. So feel free to follow along and promote your own blog! You can connect here. 

Not that I have a ton of time to kill, but when I do, Pinterest is my go-to. There's just something about having access to so much beauty and inspiration with just a click. You can find me by searching for Jessica Lafferty or by clicking here.

I use Bloglovin both to keep track of my favorite blogs and to find new ones. You can follow me here or the blog here.

Phhhoto is so fun! I know Instagram added a gif feature a while back, but honestly I'm a little glad it didn't seem to catch on, because I don't want Phhhoto to go the way of Vine. It's seriously addicting! I'm @jessica_lafferty

 Oh Snapchat. I feel like Snapchat had some seriously sketchy vibes when it first came out, but now that it has the story feature, it's become one of my most frequently-used forms of social media. Warning: my snaps are about 90% cats. ;)

If we aren't friends on social media, I'd love to connect! Feel free to add me or leave your accounts/handles below so I can add you!


  1. I love social media, I have met a lot of fun moms in my area because of social media. My friends aren't quite to where I am in life, they are either just married or just engaged, no families yet.

    1. I have met SO many of my friends that way! I'm sort of the opposite--all my friends are having babies, and I'm over here all like, "Cats are cute." Haha. No baby fever for me yet! I love seeing pictures of other peoples' though!

  2. I'm thinking about getting on the Phhhoto bandwagon, but I can't figure out Snapchat. I think it's the social anxiety. With all my other social media, I can prepare a post and then let the angst about it subside before posting. But with Snapchat, you have to post as it's happening! I can't take the pressure!

    I'm going to go through and make sure I've added you on all of these. Great post. :)

    1. How much are you loving Phhhoto? I wish more people were on it because I think it's so fun!

      I have Snapchat anxiety too. Sometimes I end up deleting snaps before anyone sees them because I'm all like, "Do I sound annoying? That was annoying wasn't it?" I totally get it! I watch other people's snaps way more than I post my own.
