Expectations vs. Reality

Are you a whore for the likes? Well, we are.

Where would we be if we didn’t #DoItForTheGram?

The “We ❤ NYC” Shot

1

What we’re trying to portray: Just roaming the streets during our lunch break! We love spending our free time on the calm NYC streets and avenues wandering around the fabulous city surrounded by beautiful tall buildings. Working in the city is so great. No need for subways or taxis; we’ll walk everywhere! #EmpireStateofMind

What’s really going on: Holy sh*t! These angry cab drivers seriously need to watch out. And yes, we chose to stop walking across the four-lane street so we could get this artsy AF Instagram shot, but so worth it because it will get so many likes. Do we care that everyone was yelling at us to get out of the way? No. It only took our entire lunch break to get the perfect angle—not too bad!

 

The “Did We or Didn’t We Eat That” Shot?

What we’re trying to portray: Look at how cool our dessert looks OMG. We’re so trendy by posting this on Insta and who cares if it’s swimsuit season. #NoRegrets

What’s actually going on: Let’s be clear here: the cotton candy colors make the picture great but none of us actually ate it. You know we’re a social media company; we’re all about aesthetics. It took an hour for us to order because the restaurant was so crowded but still worth it. We found a clean black wall to take the pic and used our ring light to make this picture on point, which it totally is.

 

The “Too Cool” for a Selfie, Selfie

What we’re trying to portray: Living the dream, looking amazing, and hanging out on the beach for sunset. Check out how good her collarbones look! Oh and the hair? All natural and flawless!! Thank you beach breeze!

What’s actually going on: The sun was setting, and the lighting was amazing. But, what you don’t see is how trashy this beach is. Someone should really clean up all of the seaweed and empty beer bottles. Best part of this photo is that you can’t see her wet hair/no makeup look. Appearance is everything and we captured as much as we could. You really thought we cut off her face to be artsy? Ha.

 

The Productivity Shot

What we’re trying to portray: The sunrise is so calming. We love starting our day with a Starbucks skinny vanilla latte w/ 2 Splenda and fresh fruit. There’s nothing better than getting a head start on e-mails at the crack of dawn right before yoga. Namaste!

What’s actually going on: Ooh I hope someone brought donuts today….

 

The Sand-y/Summer-y Shot

What we’re trying to portray: #BeachDay #BeachCasual! No complaints from the beach! Such a relaxing day laying out with a piña colada.

What’s actually going on: You don’t understand how hard it was to pose like this. Try to replicate it—we dare you. We saw this on Pinterest and tried to copy it, but it took forever. Nobody suns in a superman position as they drink a piña colada. Who even wears this much jewelry to a beach? Nobody. The messed up tan lines are worth this shot!

 

The Clean Eating Shot

What we’re trying to portray: Healthy food and the gym are two of our fave things! These greens taste amazing and can energize us for a long day at work. Plating is essential, and if this industry doesn’t work out we could always become a catering company. Follow us for delicious looking food! We’ll post the recipes in our bio.

 

What’s actually going on: Come on, this was absolute shit. Who could honestly get full off of this? We’d be hungry within 10 minutes. And, who has the time to cut their vegetables that perfectly? Time for takeout.

We all are guilty of posing, editing, or enhancing our pictures. We aren’t judging you! It takes some serious skill to make your real life look flawless and awesome. Just remember: try to not get caught!
