Have you signed up yet to Instagram? You may have been meaning to sign up to Instagram for awhile but haven’t gotten around to it.

Instagram is a photography application that you can access on your phone and follow your friends and family to stay up to date. Users pick a photo to share on the app, can change the filter (this is the colouring of the picture), add a caption to the photo and upload it so that their following can view it.

It’s really a creative place to go to and look into different people’s lives! When you upload a picture and add a caption, within that caption you can add a hashtag – from their users can click on the hashtag to see more of it. So if you uploaded a picture of you enjoying a cocktail on the beach on a holiday, you’d add into the caption #beach #holiday #sand and from their readers can click on one of the words to see more sand or holidays or beach.

You can get more followers by doing this as well, as someone could come across your photo from your hashtag. If you’re not open to your pictures being made public you make your profile private!

We’re sharing this information with you because we love seeing what you’re all wearing! Next time you share a photo of yourself on Instagram wearing EziBuy, in the caption add the hashtag #ezibuy because you’ll go in the draw to win a $100 eGift Card.

Cuff bows are hard but like all good things, worth it.
