Love Your Self(ie): The Positive Rise of Selfie Culture

Gabrielle Leimon

Ever since getting my iPhone and experimenting with apps like Snapchat and Instagram, I found myself taking more selfies and viewing myself in this way more regularly. It made me really look at myself and assess the aspects of my face and, in time, I realised that I actually really like the way that I look not just in the strategically angled and well lit photos that we take of ourselves.

When I was young, if we wanted to share the moment that our babies took their first faltering steps across the lounge floor, we had to stick our heads out of the front door and shout at Peggy across the road to stop hanging out her washing and come see.

This Sunday, HuffPost UK celebrates its third birthday, and rather than ask for piles of presents, we asked some of our favourite bloggers to gift us with their three best pieces of advice. Over the past few years, as our audience has grown and our team multiplied in size, the stories we've heard from our amazing army of bloggers - more than 9,000 in the UK today - continue to inspire and amaze, and I feel privileged to be in a position to share these with you. To kick things off, here are my three contributions - all of which have stood me in good stead during my editorship. I may not have followed them to the T all the time, and certainly forgot them on numerous occasions, but they're a timely reminder when times are tough about how to live a more fulfilling life.

What I Missed Most About Not Going to Glastonbury (And Why I'll Never Miss Another Year)

Brogan Driscoll | Posted 30.06.2014 | UK Entertainment
Brogan Driscoll

When I first went to Glastonbury I was 22: it was the year I graduated from uni; there was a heatwave; I saw Stevie Wonder, Muse, Florence and the Machine; and I hadn't quite realised how shit the job market was going to be. In short: I had the time of my life. But this year, plagued with ever-increasing overdraft - a trip to Glasto costs between £600-700 - I made the regrettable decision to give it a miss. (Note to self: don't do that again.)

Trend: Image Manipulation or Poor Self-image?

It has been decades since Photoshop has been around. And, what essentially took ages to 'achieve' with a picture, now takes seconds, all thanks to this genie called photoshop. Image manipulation today has become a norm. It's not just restricted to advertisements or corporates touching-up their product shoots. Like wind and atmosphere, it has now touched every corner of the digital world.
