Red Floral Bells & Social Media Warning


I'm still rotating fun clothing items from spring and summer. I am going to hate putting away some of my tops for the winter. But at least I know they will be there next spring. The top has a lot of fun detail with crocheted strips and bell sleeves. What really attracted me was the tiny red flowers. They seemed so feminine and old fashioned.  I wore white cropped jeans, tan mules with the rope heel detail and carried one of my favorite Tory Burch bags. Another comfortable and pretty outfit put together.


This past week I learned a few things that I wanted to share. I am not an expert but I will tell you what I know. An Instafriend of mine who had over 10,000 followers and a lovely gallery was hacked a couple of weeks ago. Her account was taken over and they were trying to get money from her. She and many others tried to contact Facebook who owns Instagram and they shut her account down and refused to even speak to her in any form. She was left with no alternative but to start over with a new account. 

This is why I could care less about Instagram, it is not mine, Facebook is in control and they could care less about any individual. I use Instagram as a driver to my blog which is my true passion/hobby. With that being said, I have put a lot of work in the my Instagram account and don't want to have it hacked. Here is what I have been told to do to protect it.

1. Make sure to have Two-Factor Authentication set up. You can find it it your settings.

2. Create a second account where you post everything so if you lose one account you will still have all your pictures. This one seems like a lot of work but I thought I would do it anyway. I don't promote it or work at it in anyway other than add the same photo as my main account. It just takes a minute. Plus it is a fun little experiment to see how things go with no effort. So far nothing but trolls are visiting it. 

3.  Google has a security system that you can implement also. Go to your account and click on Sign-in and security and then on 2-step verification and follow instructions.

4. I am sure there are other systems for other social media and as I learn more I will share.


On last Saturday's edition of the "Move It Or Lose It" segment, I talked about my DNA surprise. Science can tell us so much these days. I hope you can stop by and read the post! Sign up below for my newsletter if you want to get the reminder.
