You’ve got Facebook. That’s good for keeping up with friends and pretending to buy into the perfect lives that everyone pretends to have. Then there’s Instagram. Great for styled flatlays and filtered perfection. But what if you crave some reality, some ‘in the trenches’ insight into other people’s days, warts and all?
That’s SnapChat, my friends. Not only the domain for sending pictures to your mates of food that looks like genitals (you’re welcome, Steph) but also a great place to interact with other mums.
SnapChat, for those not in the know, is an app which allows you to send images or quick videos to your selected friends. There are filters but there’s usually used for morphing your face into animals or something you’d see in a circus side show.
The great thing about SnapChat is that people are real. Because images can only see seen for a short amount of time, people tend to be a lot more open and honest about what’s going on and it allows us an insight into the day to day mundane activities that others are up to. In short, it’s a great social media perve fest.
We’ve previously covered the mums that you’ll want to follow on Instagram so here’s a list of the best SnapChattin’ mums to add to your friends list.
Zoe Foster Blake (SnapChat name: zingus)
You'd be hard pressed to find a list of great Aussie Mums that doesn't have Zoe Foster Blake's name on it. That's because she's so damn great, everyone wants to be her best friend. Not only is she a successful author, beauty writer, founder of Go-To Skincare and supermum but she gives comedian Hubby Hamish Blake a run for his money in the funny stakes. She also happens to own the fourth cutest child in town (I have three so it would be kinda wrong if I put him in at number one and my kids read this and started asking questions).
