It's been almost two months since TMZ broke the internet with claims that Kylie Jenner was pregnant with her first child, and with no confirmation from the Kardashian camp, fans have had to do a little detective work of their own.

Between supposed sightings of baby bumps and cryptic Instagram posts, the “is she, isn't she” debate doesn't look like it's going to end any time soon, and her latest Snapchat has fans more confused than ever.

The 20-year-old makeup mogul shared a photo of a home cooked meal along with the caption “full ass plate” – but it wasn't Kylie's food that got people talking.

Eagle-eyed Snapchat users spotted what looks like a glass of white wine in the top right corner of the photo, leading many to believe the star is not pregnant.

Some fans took to Twitter to share the revelation:

Meanwhile, fans have speculated that Kylie made an attempt to hide her 'baby bump' in another recent snap. 

Some suggest the star chose to purposefully cover her stomach in an over sized hoodie in a clip that showed her cuddling with her dogs, Norman and Bambi. 

Can we just get a confirmation already? The suspense is killing us.

Another day, another reason to love the ball of sarcastic sunshine that is Chrissy Teigen.

With an Instagram feed full of sweet family photos, and Snapchat stories packed with candid ramblings, anyone that follows the US model on social media will know all about her quick wit and open attitude.

But her latest post might just be our favourite yet.

Taking to Twitter earlier today, Chrissy shared a screenshot of a text she received from her assistant.

In the text, the assistant informs Chrissy of an accidental nip-slip on her Snapchat story and reveals how she had taken it upon herself to delete it.

(Of course, there's nothing wrong with a little nipple display, but it's pretty much an assistant's job to spot these sorts of things.)

The star even included a little video message for all the haters, saying: “I just wanna apologise to everyone I know. I've let my friends down, I've let my family down… And I have nipples. It's not something I'm proud of.”

So brave. So wise. 

Bravo, Chrissy.

If you've been plumping for Instagram Stories over Snapchat in recent months, you're most certainly not alone.

According to a recent study conducted in the United States by marketing firm Mediakix, influencers, who are active on both platforms, are more likely to opt for Instagram Stories when sharing images and videos.

In fact, the research, which focussed on the activity of 12 top influencers, established that they were posting to Instagram 44 per cent more and Snapchat 33 per cent less.

Over the course of two 30-day periods in February and August of this year, the firm tracked the number of posts shared by the influencers, and established that the popularity of Snapchat is waning when it comes to frequent usage.

The study highlighted the key findings, with the report stating: "On average, influencers posted 7.6 Stories per day on Instagram, compared to 3.5 Stories per day on Snapchat."

"There were two times as many Instagram Stories as Snapchat Stories posted throughout the study."

"In comparison to the data from our previous study (6 months ago), there was a 33 per cent decrease in Snapchat Stories usage and a 14 per cent increase in Instagram Stories usage."

"This shift indicates a clear preference for Instagram Stories over Snapchat Stories among top influencers."

Instagram Stories, which has been lauded for its user-friendly interface, launched in August 2016, and currently boasts 250 million users.

Legally Blonde is an iconic noughties film, and frankly, we'd be lost without the bend and snap. 

Elle Woods is one of our favourite movie characters ever, and her quirky and hidden intelligence make us love her even more. 

One thing in particular that fascinated us about Reese Witherspoon's portrayal of Elle was the amazingly funky wardrobe Elle possessed.

Well, clearly Reese was a fan of the Legally Blonde wardrobe too, as she kept quite a few pieces from the movie, 

Taking to Snapchat, Reese showed off her LB wardrobe to fans, and ever tried on a few of the items, 16 years later.  

From the fluffy bunny slippers to Elle's date night dress, we got seriously nostalgic. 

Twitter user Alison screengrabbed the iconic snaps and shared them to Twitter, where they have now been liked almost 40,000 times. 

We now hav a hankering to spend our Saturday binge watching the Legally Blonde flicks…

Just days after her brother willingly placed himself at the centre of an internet furore, Kim Kardashian-West has inadvertently found herself in another.

And she's determined to remove herself from it as quickly as possible.

While sharing a series of images on Snapchat yesterday, the reality star became the subject of an 'is it/ isn't it' debate on social media after eagle-eyed followers spotted two lines of white powder in the background of her snaps.

With speed generally only seen when a rumour takes hold on social media, Kim was suddenly thrust into the limelight for all the wrong reasons, and she wasted no time extricating herself from it.

"Ohhhhhh @KimKardashian caught out with cocaine .. durtayyyyy," wrote one follower after spotting the suspicious substance.

"I do not play with rumours like this so I'm gonna shut it down real quick," the mum-of-two replied when confronted with the allegations on Twitter.

"That's sugar from our candy mess from Dylan's candy shop," she clarified.

 

My baby girl turned 4 years old today! She's my light & my everything!!! I love you to the moon & back North

A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

Unfortunately for Kim, not everyone is buying it, with many questioning the positioning of the powder.

"Why is she playing with candy on the bathroom counter? Why is said candy cut into lines? Those are lines in waiting," wrote one.

"You keep your sugar in cut lines? neat," added another.

Interestingly, Kim has since changed her story and returned to Snapchat to insist that the white lines were, in fact, a design on the marble countertop..

"Okay you guys, I just got back to my hotel room, And look at this table, same position. It is still there!" she said before proving that she had also been in Dylan's candy shop hence the confusion.

The plot thickens…

Ever had a tough time choosing the exact right hue for your nails in the salon?

There are so many to choose from, and if you regret the shade, that's fifty quid down the drain. 

Luckily, 18-year-old Emma Young recently shared her GENIUS method of colour choosing, and we're blown away. 

All you need is the plastic colour decals and your Snapchat app and you're good to go. 

'I was looking at the nail options, and the nail salon I go to has them glued inside the book so you can't put your finger under it to see how it looks,' she told Buzzfeed. 

Momentarily baffled, the teen had a radical idea.

Using Snapchat's sticker feature, she created a sticker with one of the nail shades, and placed it on her own nail in a snap. 

The final result was a Emma being able to see exactly what the shade would look like adorning her digits. 

Impressed? You should be. 

The method went completely viral after Emma tweeted it to the masses, and people have been utilising the Snapchat nail sticker hack for themselves.

We're sorted for our next salon visit!

The ladies' bathroom is truly a magical place.

No night out is complete until you've completed some random girl's shoes while simultaneously dousing yourself with whatever perfume is on offer. 

It's the place where friendship are formed, feuds are settles and of course it's the backdrop for some of your most memorable group selfies.

The citizens of world must know about this unlikely chamber of female empowerment – and thanks to one Cork pub, now they can.

A new campaign fronted by the young women of the University of Bristol is aiming to open a discussion and raise awareness around the topic of sexual assault and harassment.

Some female students have taken to Snapchat to share their personal experiences in a bid to showcase just how common the problem actually is. 

The clips combine to make a Snapchat story that manages to be simultaneously utterly distressing and yet highly-relatable. 

One woman said, ''In my first term of freshers I walked a drunk friend home after a night out. I refused to let anything happen but he said, ‘It’s not rape – you want this.''

Another women revealed that she had been raped three time since starting her studies: “I’ve lived in Bristol for about five years and since being a student here I've been raped again three times and assaulted a lot. Every time it happens it's been someone that I know, I like, I love and that I see all the time.”

Some of the women chose hide their identity by covering their faces with emojis and stickers. 

The campaign is the brainchild of Hannah Price, th Online Editor of the student paper, Epigram. She hoped that using a familiar platform such as Snapchat would encourage her female peers feel comfortable enough to speak up.

In an interview with The Independent, Hannah spoke about the severity of the often forgotten issue. 

“While at university, whenever the topic has been discussed with my girlfriends it was always met with ‘me too,’ or similar accounts.''

She continued, “But I've watched as it has become increasingly normalised – with us all just shrugging it off. So I wanted to spark the conversation before everyone went silent on the issue.”

The response to the original story was overwhelming positive and so Hannah has since compiled the clips into a six-minute Youtube video.

“Within a few hours of posting the original story I was contacted by a male survivor from the university who wanted to tell me he was touched by the campaign and thanking me for raising the voice on the issue,” Hannah revealed to The Independent

We applaud Hannah and the women of the University of Bristol for brining light to a topic has become increasingly normalised over the years.

So, Instagram launched four very exciting features today, including the addition of some very snapchat-esque face filters.

Their press release reads: "Today, we're introducing face filters in the camera, an easy way to turn an ordinary selfie into something fun and entertaining."  

"Whether you're sitting on the couch at home or out and about, face filters help you express yourself and have playful conversations with friends."

 

We're having some fun with the new Instagram #facefilters today what do you think of them?

A post shared by Bottle (@wearebottle) on

Sound familiar? 

The first set of face filters will include things like, furry koala ears, golden crowns and maths equations swirling around your head.

The feature is accessible by simply tapping the new icon at the bottom right corner of the screen, and just like Snapchat, some filters work when more than one person is in frame. 

But that's not all.

The image sharing platform has rolled out three more "creative tools"  for us to play with – 'Hashtag stickers', 'Eraser brush' and 'Rewind'.

Hashtag stickers allow the user to decorate their stories while linking back to other Instagram content.

The new 'Eraser brush' gives you the ability to remove certain sections of you doodles. 

While the new 'Rewind' setting allows you to record and share videos in reverse. 

Of course, Snapchat filters will always have a special place in our hearts, but we have to admit, we're pretty excited to try these out.

It's fair to say that one of the reasons Snapchat's presence and popularity grew exponentially in such a short period of time was mainly down to its unique selling point – the disappearing act.

Images sent via the app were only available for a limited amount of time before the media disappeared for all eternity, but that's all changed following an announcement made this week.

As of yesterday, Snapchat users can avail of an 'infinity feature' which allows their friends and followers to view a snap for as long as they choose.

Taking to their blog to explain the rationale behind the switch-up, they said: "Today we’re making a pretty big change to the way you create and send Snaps."

"We’ve all felt the frustration of not being able to fully enjoy a Snap – even after replaying it – and we wanted to give you the option of allowing the recipient to enjoy your Snap as long as they’d like. After your friend finishes viewing the Snap and taps to close it, it will delete as usual."

In addition to this, the powers that be have restructured the layout of their creative tools and included the addition of a magic eraser.

"These changes allow us to continue evolving the Snapchat service and provide a foundation for introducing even more creative tools for making fun Snaps," they said.

Well, this changes everything… potentially.

Nearly every brand, network and company played April Fool's pranks yesterday, but we have to say that Snapchat was one of our faves.

It was a subtle one, but a gas one nonetheless.

Snapchat played a joke on the photo-sharing site by adding an Instagram filter to its options.

And the funniest thing about it is at the end of the filter, it's liked by 'my_mom and 2 others'.

Slagging Instagram because mams only use it?! Harsh.

Even though April Fool's Day is over, we're hoping Instagram has a comeback.
