My life isn’t necessarily as glamorous as it looks on Instagram

Hi Lovely!

Today I want to talk to you about the illusion that is often perpetrated by social media. I am guilty of it just as much as the next person. I choose to share the flattering photos. I re-take images to make sure I have the one that makes me feel the most attractive and share that with my followers. I usually wait to take photos until I am wearing makeup because I feel like that is when I look the most appealing. It is just silly and I know it. It happens without even thinking sometimes.

That is why today I want to share a little behind the scenes look at what I look like in-between the cute photos I share in my outfit posts. The truth is that most of the time I take really stupid-looking photos and wind up with a hand-full of “cute” ones. The winners get shared and the silly or unattractive ones get stored on my external drive to be forgotten.

I am just like you. I don’t live some crazy cool life and I’m not all “done-up” every day. I am just a normal person working a full-time office job that blogs in her free time. To be honest I usually sit around in pajamas and sweats when I’m home. That is just me! So here are my silly photos. I hope they make you smile or even laugh.

I’m not sure what was happening in this one.


Fletch told me to make the Totoro face so here it is. Look at that beautiful, flawless chin.

I think the flash was warming up.

Fletch was telling me to do more poses and for some reason I did this.

I mean, it is an ice cream purse. I had to.

This was one of those in-between shots. It is pretty great.

So that is my little peak behind the curtain. I am a silly weirdo who happens to blog. I’m just another person.

Now, let’s be friends!

  1. I love this! Your photos are too funny, and too real because I am the same exact way! My mom is the best at taking the most unflattering photos of me. Good thing she’s patient enough and takes a lot of photos! haha. I think it’s fun to see a look behind the process.
