Here are the First Instagram Stories Celeb Moms we Follow Shared (VIDEO)

instagram stories

Just when  you think you’ve figured out Snapchat, here comes photo sharing social media site Instagram with its own version of short-lived mini videos called, Stories.

If you update your Instagram app, you will notice above your newsfeed your profile photo with a red circle around it and following your profile are circles of others on your follow list in a single row who have also uploaded stories. If you press on that button, your camera will open and you will be given the option to take a photo or press down and hold on the play button and record a 20 second video.

The first few stories I witnessed were filled with bewildered people testing it out and in awe of how similar it is to Snapchat. There aren’t cool filters like snapchat and there are other significant differences you can read about in Mashable HERE!

Bellyitch follows several brands and celebrities on Instagram and below is a video of what they shared on the first full day that Stories was available. I recorded the very first “stories” they share. Here is a list of that they shared followed with the actual video. It’s about 7 minutes long.

Ivanka Trump shared photos of Trump DC. She is the project manager for the hotel that is slated to open September.

VH1 Love & Hip Hop: New York star Emily Bustamante shared photos of her 1-year old son, Jonas, and of herself in a car driving down the street.

British singer Lily Allen shared photo of herself in bed, awaken by the sound of a vibrating construction drill.

Bethenny Frankel was in Nantucket, Massachusetts and also shared a photo of herself in bed and in the middle of a field.

Children’s wear designer Tiffany Dessa shared videos of her son.

Chrissy Teigen‘s featured her mom and herself chilling in bed watching Shah’s of Sunset after a plane trip. John was confuled.

Taraji P. Henson was on set with actor Taye Diggs, in the car with her hair blowing in the wind and in her trailer with her Terrier Willie. Her hair looks amazing.

Milla Jovovich is at the beach and she shared stories of her daughters. Lots of them. Outside and down the street.

A lot of the above don’t sound that interesting but if you are fans of celebs, getting an intimate look inside their lives may be interesting to you.

Straws in McDonald’s Milkshakes in Japan Reportedly Mimic Breastfeeding

You’ve heard plenty of times of the benefits of breastfeeding and apparently whoever created the straws that are given with McDonald’s milkshakes in Japan did too.

Mashable, citing RocketNews24 as its source, says McDonald’s Japan designed the straws to mimic the pace and experience of breastfeeding.

To support this claim, RocketNews24 points to a quote from McDonald’s Japan founder Den Fujita, who died in 2004.

“When humans drink something, the speed that produces the most delicious feeling is the speed at which babies nurse,” Fujita wrote in a book series called “Den Fujita’s Business Strategies 2: Overwhelming Business Strategies. “McDonald’s straws are designed so that when used with a shake, the speed will be the same as that of an infant drinking breast milk.”

McDonald’s Japan has not returned Mashable’s request for a comment so all we have to do now is plot a trip to Japan to check this claim out for ourselves!

Celebrity and Other Women participated in Inaugural National #BumpDay

Valerie Bertinelli was among several women and celebrities like Odette Annable who shared their pregnant belly in celebration of #BumpDay, yesterday, July 22.

It is a day created by our partners at WhatToExpect.com in coordination with the United Nations Foundation, International Medical Corps and 1,000 Days to raise awareness about maternity health inequality around the world.

Everyone, whether currently pregnant, recently pregnant, pregnant a long time ago or know someone who is or has been pregnant, was invited to participate in the day in several ways. The most common way was by posting a #BumpDay selfie in social media with the hashtag and explanation on why they are participating in the day.
