The Instagram account @OMGLiterallyDead is pretty much the grand opus of millennial tropes — it follows Skellie, a super basic chick/skeleton. Skellie is literally dead, because she can’t even! Follow her adventures as she indulges in basic activities like shopping, drinking Starbucks, and overusing hashtags, all in skeleton form. You can even buy Skellie clothes! Skellie was created when Dana Herlihey, a social media manager, received a plastic skeleton at her office in October. She and her co-workers taped a Starbucks cup to Skellie’s hand, and the rest is history. Click through for a few of Skellie’s most #blessed Instagram moments. Keep reading »

If you’re sick of giving gifts from major retailers and want to support small businesses instead, Instagram is a great resource for finding gifts that are truly special. Here are some I suggest…
Bros Being Basic features a slew of dudes partaking in trademark basic bitch behavior on Instagram, complete with perfectly predictable (and sarcastic) hashtags. They are totally spot on, which makes me think that these guys are maybe starting to see the allure of all those yoga poses and pumpkin spice lattes. Being basic feels good, doesn’t it bros?
