Let's face it, none of us live the life we purport to lead on social media.

For every one evening spent quaffing cocktails with the girls, there's 20 spent examining your split ends on the couch, right?

Acknowledging that we all do it, RIOT – the comedy section of Refinery29 – have released a video which examines our need to constantly filter our lives into something Insta-worthy, and frankly it's all of us.

Making Your Life Look Less Empty With Instagram Filters reminds us that filtering our lives to clock up the likes is an international pastime, and we're all out of control.

How guilty are you?!



Ireland is known as the land of Guinness, but vegans and vegetarians haven't been able to drink our adored black stuff due to the way the drink has been filtered. 

Until now, that is.

According to The Times, Guinness will become vegan-friendly due to changes in it's filtering process. 

The news comes after a Guinness spokesperson revealed this week that the company will stop using isinglass, a by-product of the fishing industry, for filtering.

The news has been welcomed with open arms by vegans all around the world and by 2016, Guinness will be totally vegan. Hurrah!
