Instagram vs Reality…


If I’ve heard anything over and over again this year it’s this phrase. 👆🏻

Social media to overtake the world for 2018 or what’s the prediction? 🧐
i write posts like these because they are my genuine opinion and 9 times out of 10 I am more or like guilty of it.

(Also, im just seriously bad at having to say what’s on my mind so if it’s harsh or not i wanna share it 🤷🏻‍♀️)

So anyway basically BIG REVEAL….

My Instagram is not my reality.

Yeah obvs gal. (Say most of you hopefully)

We quite clearly choose the nicest meals, outfits, perfectly placed winged eyeliner selfies to upload to the grid because why would we not?

It’s gonna get the likes, it’s gonna look more pretty, it’s gonna get us that attention we are looking.

So how come some people are not willing to admit this?! Believe it or not this perfect life we all live in squares doesn’t follow through in an all day every day situation (for everyone)...

Thankfully for instastories and captions I feel I can use that in a way to let people (who don’t know me) have a little more insight into my personality beside the image I’m posting – which I feel is VERY important.

There is nothing worse than laughing away at someone’s insta caption then meeting them in real life and they couldn’t think of something witty to say if you slapped them round the face with it? 🤦🏻‍♀️

Along with the “OMG hun you look soooo beaut here 😍😍😩comments but can’t fire as much as a wave in your direction if you passed them on the street?!


Instagram is not that far away from real life, so what’s the big deal in expressing the same feelings to one another via social media than to a real life handshake?!

Now don’t get me wrong, if I met harry styles in real life I would totally play down all the fan girl tweets I’ve sent over the years…. 🙄

We all know everyone’s instagram is a selection of their highlights in life, we can pick and choose what way we wanna portray ourselves on social media, but do me a favour and try play some of it out in real life.

The instagram vs reality battle would be a lot more fightable if everyone wasn’t afraid to be themselves!

And personally for me, I would much rather give someone “real” a like and a follow 🤷🏻‍♀️

Real life...“Real life…”

Speak soon;
Lotsa love

When love island becomes life â¤ï¸ðŸŒ´

Today the date of the love island final was revealed and the sound of hearts breaking all over the UK was real.

What in the name of good fuck am I going to do come 9pm every night?

I’m not gonna lie, I do not lead the most exciting of social lives

….non existent 75% of the time if I’m being brutally honest. 

So every evening  itv2 is my life and if any of you gals follow my snapchat “galsgoss” you will know. 

Nightly running commentary goes down.

But, this year more than ever I feel the obsession is shared and people feel the love island hype strong….

  • Walking into work at 9am “omg did yous see love island last night?”
  • Omg can’t wait until love island tonight
  • What do you think they’re all doing right now?
  • How do they wear makeup all day every day?
  • I’m gonna apply next year 
  • Wonder what they talk about
  • Do I say “grafting” in my normal day vocabulary too much?
  • I need to get one of those tshirts with their quotes on it 
  • Wonder would kem cut my hair 
  • Do you think blazing squad will reform?
  • Wonder how many bikinis they all brought
  • Chris rapping is the best thing 
  • Why does Olivia not laugh at Chris? He is hilarious; he should be with me
  • I’m gonna apply next year 
  • Alex is so dreamy but does he speak English?
  • Johnny’s face has made the series 
  • Why does gabby think them buns at the side of her head are nice?
  • I’m gonna apply next year 
  • It’s Saturday night and there’s no new episode? Wtf am I meant to do tonight?
  • Bet they can’t wait to check their insta followers when they get out 
  • I’m gonna apply next year 

Gals let me know, am I on my own here? Or is the obsession real?

Speak soon,

Lotsa love
