8 ways to perfect the social media humblebrag

We’re all partial to a little showing off every now and again – you got a promotion? Hell yeah boast about it, you worked damn hard to get where you are. Being humble when you brag is key, but then again, rubbing your success in people’s faces can be just as fun. Here are 8 ways to perfect the perfect social media humblebrag.   Make sure people knows you’re off the market ‘Omg I just chipped my engagement ring’ or if you really want to rub it in people’s faces ‘OMG I just chipped my engagement ring when I was working out at the gym, where I exercise everyday.’ Bonus points if you accompany this sickening status with a picture of your now damaged engagement ring.   Let people know that you’re earning good money ‘I am such an idiot, I just spilled red wine on my Celine bag’ Or if you want to be extra obnoxious ‘Oh god, I am such an idiot, I just knocked a glass of Möet over and it spilled onto my new Celine clutch :(‘   Let people know your over-achieving child is better than everyone else’s ‘After spending so much money on classes I can finally say I am so proud of my daughter’s progress in dressage’ Why not be even more insufferable and say ‘Not only does my daughter speak fluent Mandarin, but she’s also the best show jumper in her age group in the country #FeelingBlessed’   Let people know you have friends ‘Ok, what is it with today and everyone asking me to hang out, ugh, I wish I wasn’t so busy with my new job’   Make sure everyone knows your career is better than their miserable desk job ‘OMG I’ve just been invited to a site visit in Rio de Janeiro with work, I don’t speak Portuguese this going to be so awkward!’   You’re sweet as pie and everyone should know about it ‘Who would’ve thought setting up a charity would be so hard’ better yet, why not say ‘Setting up a charity for dying animals is so humbling, the endless hard work I do is so worth the outcome #FeelingBlessed’   Dedicate a Tweet to your loyal followers ‘Wow I can’t believe I have reached 400 followers, thank you so much you inspire me every day and I couldn’t do this without you RT & FOLLOW for a chance to win a tote bag’.   Make sure everyone knows you’re a natural beauty ‘I rolled out of bed, messy hair and stains on my clothes and I get hit on. But when I’m done up for a night out no one comes near me #LOL’. Or if you want to be even more annoying why not say ‘I left the gym in sweats and I got hit on, but when I went out last week in my Balmain no one even looked at me #LOL #NaturalBeautyWins’
