Selfie culture…It’s all around us. Everywhere you go, you will see someone taking a selfie. I am very guilty of this! There are even selfie sticks now, which I personally think are very cool! You can add more people into the picture and get your surroundings better in the background. However, I don’t think I would ever be caught using one.
While writing this article, I decided to read some articles for myself on websites like the Daily Mail, a news outlet located in the United Kingdom, and Vanity Fair online to see what other’s were saying about this certain topic.
People are calling this culture is conceited, narcissistic, and selfish because of their selfish taking, I think that selfies give women in particular more self confidence.

With pressures to look a certain way more than ever, it’s important to feel good about ourselves; and if that means taking a good selfie, then so be it! One good picture can turn someones whole day around! Snapchat is an outlet that thrives on selfies. Taking a good selfie and then posting it to your snapchat story, then seeing how many people respond is always fun. And yes, I am guilty of posting my good selfies to my story, but a good selfie needs to be shared! Besides, the age you are now is the youngest you will be, so why not show it off with a selfie!
If you’re not hurting anyone (including yourself) while taking a selfie, then why does it matter what others think?
So, the next time you see someone or even you, yourself taking a selfie, don’t judge and join in on the fun! 🙂
And as always..
**Comment below with your thoughts on the selfie generation. I’d love to hear them! 🙂
As most of you know, I went to an all-girls high school. High school for me, was a great time. I met some great people, had great teachers, and of course learned a lot even outside the classroom. So I thought I’d share some of […]
Recently my Mom and I had a nice breakfast at a new spot in Laguna Beach called Urth Caffe at the Cottage. The Cottage used to be a restaurant in Laguna, but unfortunately this historic place closed about 7 years ago. This restaurant was a staple of Laguna Beach as a breakfast place and it was really bare when it closed. Luckily, the owners of a coffee shop with locations in Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, and Pasadena bought this location and restored this beautiful restaurant to it’s original Chinese architecture.
Urth is located diagonally from the Laguna Art Museum on PCH (Pacific Coast Highway). With beautiful views of the ocean!
My Mom and I ended up both buying croissants. I an almond, my Mom chocolate.
The almond croissant was flaky and so so buttery! It was amazing. The chocolate croissant tasted a little bit like it was deep fried.
Now to the coffee!
My Mom got a Spanish cappuccino. With a lovely turkey coffee art!
I got a Caffe Granita with strong espresso.
We had a wonderful experience!
This is my week in pictures! Every few weeks or so, I’ll share what has gone on in my week through some pictures! I enjoy taking pictures but I’d definitely rather be in front of the camera than behind it! That being said, I will try to take as few selfies as humanly possible. However, I feel that a good selfie is something to be shown! haha
- This was me on Sunday wearing my Zach Ertz jersey t-shirt in representation of the Philadelphia Eagles game against the New York Jets. Luckily, they won! The Eagles are my favorite football team, and Zach is my favorite player!
- I was shopping with my Mom (yes, I am 22 and I enjoy hanging out with my Mom) and I saw these roses! Pink roses are my absolute favorite colored rose, so I just had to take a picture and share!
- This picture is from Urth Caffe at the Cottage in Laguna Beach! I met a dear friend of mine for lunch and some coffee and had a blast catching up with her! This is the first Urth location in Orange County. I love going to the Caffe’s in Los Angeles, but I am happy that there is one so close to home. *More on Urth coming soon!*
- If you took a good selfie, it’s impolite not to show it off! Here’s a picture of me celebrating international coffee day with some Starbucks!
Hope you enjoyed my week in pictures as much as I did!
