We're sure we're not the only ones with a bunch of photos of ourselves from different occasions stocked up in our camera roll, with no one else to appreciate them but us. But hey, it's never too late to post them on your feed, accompanied by witty, funny, and relatable instagram captions.

Dirty mirror selfies, a photo of you drinking your fave coffee at your fave cafe, a selfie of you wearing and showcasing your own handcrafted accessories, and a photo of you in your school uniform (yes, we definitely miss going to school, too!). Even your no-filter selfiesWe know you've got at least one of these pics just sitting on your phone.

Instagram is obviously the go-to social media app when it comes to sharing our favorite moments with our favorite people. So whether you went to a party with your friends pre-pandemic or just thought of dressing up for an errand, it’s always a must to have at least a couple of selfies and OOTD photos to post for your IG. 


Also, this quarantine made us spend a lot of time with our family, friends, and ourselves. We probably have done a lot of Tiktok DIY self-portrait shoots just to ease down our boredom. And for whatever reason, most of us probably have our phone gallery filled with 50 percent selfies, but that’s on what? Self-love and appreciation! We love taking photos of ourselves especially when we feel good, don’t we? Shouldn’t just let those photos just sit and wait there! All you have to do is post 'em, because, TBH, we'd love to see it!
