Follow R29's Lucie Fink as she dives headfirst into social experiments — five days at a time.


Social media is how we connect with each other in this day and age. It's how we know when an event is happening. Hell, it's how we know it's our cousin's birthday. It also doesn't hurt that every Like feels like a personal validation.

But do we really need Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and the rest? Or are we just used to opening the apps when we are bored?

Watch as Lucie says goodbye to all of her social media accounts for five days for some quality offline time.

About Try Living with Lucie

Refinery29's Lifestyle Host, Lucie Fink, dives headfirst into social experiments, 5 days at a time. Manhattan's very own Millennial survivor-woman is willing to try it all and see what she learns along the way -- testing her mental and physical strengths. New to the city, she is asked to shut off her cell phone for the following work week and then spend a limited $50 the next. Do you know how much the subway costs now-a-days? It's time to watch and learn with Lucie.
