Kim Kardashian is officially back to her old self on social media! After a three month-long digital detox, Kardashian finally returned to her true passion on Wednesday night: posting selfies on Snapchat.
The end of 2016 was grim for Kardashian fans, but Kim Kardashian is giving her followers hope for the new year with her first selfie of 2017. The reality star revived her dormant Snapchat account to post a selfie with mom Kris Jenner in a car, captioning it "first selfie of 2017 w my mama." Check out the new selfie below.
The selfie comes a day after Kim Kardashian made her highly anticipated return to social media earlier this week by posting a photo of herself alongside husband Kanye West and two children North and Saint West. After posting the photo, Kardashian posted a sweet home movie on her personal app and interacted with a few thankful fans on her Twitter. She's since posted three more photos to her Instagram, all featuring her two children.
But although Kim Kardashian officially made her return to social media on Tuesday, it just wouldn't be complete without a selfie. The reality star's love for taking photos of herself has evolved from just a silly little obsession to almost a trademark practice. After declaring her devotion to the art of taking selfies for years on her reality show Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim finally released an actual book of her selfies last year called Selfish. If publishing a whole book on the topic doesn't convince you of how important selfies are to Kim Kardashian, you think back to that iconic moment when she wouldn't stop snapping selfies in the car ride to bail sister Khloe Kardashian out of jail.
If nothing else, it's nice to see Kim Kardashian is doing the stuff she loves again. The reality star became known for her highly active and ubiquitous presence on social media up until she was robbed at gunpoint in a Paris hotel room at the beginning of October. The day of the robbery, Kardashian had posted a selfie of herself with a large diamond ring on Instagram, and that ring was then stolen by the robbers a few hours later. In the aftermath of the life-threatening robbery, Kardashian was reportedly incredibly shaken, and stayed out of the public eye and offline for the remainder of the year. Apparently, Kardashian was just waiting out 2016 before returning to her social media throne, and has been slowly beginning to post more as the new year has begun.
Here's to a year full of selfies!
