    I Tried To Live According To Paris Hilton's Instagram And Here's What Happened

    Living my dream.

    Paris Hilton has the most fire Instagram feed in the world today.

    I, on the other hand, do not have a fire Instagram feed. So I wondered: What would happen if I tried to live the glorious life seen in Paris Hilton's Instagram?

    When you look at Paris Hilton's Instagram feed, a couple of things immediately jump out:

    1. Appreciate nature.

    In an effort to show my love for the outdoors I visited the closest bit of greenery to the office – a small square littered with half a dozen trees.

    2. Don't be afraid of self-promotion.

    When Paris shares a photo of herself in a photo frame, she looks like a boss. Me, I just look like a prick.

    3. Boast of your connections.

    Unfortunately the only photo I have of me with a celebrity is this one with British TV chef Antony Worrall Thompson.

    4. Celebrate national days.

    As I lay there pretending to hold an oversized carrot cake, a lot of questions raced through my mind.

    5. Get personal.

    OK, so maybe my face or the name Jamie Jones don't lend themselves so well to customised cushions.

    6. Celebrate intelligence.

    I'm willing to admit that I'm no genius – up until the age of 18 I thought reindeers were fictional animals.

    7. Spread inspiration.

    Paris loves to spread inspiration. I do not.

    8. Be inspiration.

    It was time to go full Paris, or at least attempt to.

    9. Spread your brand.

    This made me ~very~ uncomfortable.

    10. Live your best life.

    Of all the photos taken, this was the one where I was feeling my best.

    Some final thoughts.
