Why we can’t keep away from the Kardashians

Even though our social media is pretty much KarJenner-krowded, we never seem to get sick of them!  So why is this?

So you’ve probably guessed that we have some major Kardashian kravings going on. Barely a day goes by that we don’t see a Kardashian/Jenner family member on Snap, Insta or Twitter. And even though our social media is pretty much KarJenner-krowded, we never seem to get sick of them! So why is this?

Firstly, we’re used to keeping up with them. After all, they’ve been gracing our screens since 2007, a whole fashion era ago! So to be without the Kardashian-Jenners would be to say goodbye to over a decade of entertainment, not to mention we would literally miss keeping up with their lives!


Another reason we love the KarJenners is that they’re relatable. No, not the squillions of dollars and wardrobes full of Birkins (we wish!), but their fierce loyalty to each other. The reality TV royals always have each other’s backs in times of stress and in times of joy, which we love. They also have, as cheesy as it sounds, real-life issues just like us. Relationships, family squabbles, body hang-ups. So it would seem that as far apart as their world is from ours (until we get our own TV show, of course), they’re not so different after all. And we love to see that! Their constant presence on our social media is like having several uber-fabulous friends, with spectacular wardrobes, posting their updates and successes for us to celebrate. So tuning in after a long day to watch TV’s most addictive family is like catching up with friends we’ve known since low-rise jeans were first popular. And that’s why we can’t keep away from the Kardashians.

In her spare time Hanna can be found devouring a book or magazine, watching 'Friends' or asking her parents for Snapchats of the family’s two beagles.
