Our Instagram handles are usually filtered and manipulated versions of our realities. No matter how obvious this is, it’s still easy to forget that the posts are about 80% fake and we end up comparing ourselves to those unattainable standards.
So, you might find Insta-blogger Vienna‘s social experiment to be pretty refreshing. She decided to create Instagram vs. Reality photos and expose her followers to the unedited reality that goes behind all those likes and comments…
A Little Birdy
Don’t be embarrassed, we’ve all tried our luck capturing the perfect bird photo. A picture that makes you look just as pretty as Cinderella did when her little blue birdies came to help her get dressed. Unfortunately, that’s not always how it plays out.
As you can see, it’s no simple task and you too would have a hard time striking the perfect pose if one of them decided to flap its wings in your face. Vienna looks a little less peaceful in the picture that exposes the reality of trying to take a snap with birds.
If You Have An Issue
Vienna was feeling cute and stuck a tissue up her nose, just like the creative-looking tissue dispenser in her hand. On the left, she somehow makes the look work for her. Her bangs sit perfectly and her fair skin looks as clear as day.
Any girl with bangs will tell you that what is happening to Vienna’s hair on the right is a constant battle they face. Bangs can be a tricky hairstyle to maintain and Vienna is no exception. You can also see how heavily airbrushed her face is in the first image.
The London Cold
When you plan a trip to London over the festive season, you expect to spend your days wearing gorgeous trench coats, sipping on Starbucks coffee. However, the winters in London are filled with cold and rainy days. The temperature can drop to about 5°C.
Winter also comes with the dose of flu it hands out to everybody. Vienna’s Instaworthy picture shows someone who isn’t even feeling the effects of the cold at all, when in fact, she too is having a hard time pretending that she wasn’t freezing her bum off.
