Instagram is a place of opportunities for artists. The platform is mostly leveraged by models and fitness bloggers who have built an empire of followers on this pictorial social media site. These models suggest through their beautiful pictures clicked at the exotic places about how to get lighter skin, pose for yoga, what to eat, what not to eat and how to stay healthy. But beneath this shiny veneer lies the harsh reality.
An Instagram blogger, Cheesie King addresses this issue to uncover the reality and encourages people to come out ‘real’ without Photoshopped pictures to celebrate ‘body positivity’. To do this, she takes a picture in two different poses (Instagram vs Real) to reveal the difference. .
The lady is one a mission.
Expectation vs reality.
“BOOTY GOALS” 🍑 “OH MY GOD I WANT YOUR BUM”… you see these kinda comments all over your newsfeed, but would you see those kinda comments on the right photo?! 🤷🏼♀️ Neither of these photos are edited or photoshopped, same bottom just 2 completely different angles. Are you hooked on growing your peach to look like your favourite instagram girl? Have you ever thought maybe they have what I’ve got on the right: the dimples, the uneven cheeks, the bit I like to call the “second booty” (that bit underneath your bottom). I used to be extremely conscious of the back of my legs & if anyone was walking behind me whilst I was in swimwear I’d cover my booty & my legs because I was so embarrassed. I still find it a little bit scary sharing the right photo but I’m in my happy place, stuffing myself with popcorn! 🍿 & if it helps at least one of you to realise it’s OKAY to have imperfections then it was worth me pooing my pants a little. So next time you look in the mirror & see something similar to the right photo, just have a little word with yourself, I gat it too gurlll. You’re not alone 🙋🏼♀️🧡❤️💛
She isn’t against the fake models only, she’s against people who cyberbully females on social media.

SERIOUSLY THOUGH… why do all my friends look like absolute goddesses after a workout WITH NOT ONE LITTLE BIT OF SWEAT ON THEM! 🙅🏼💦 Put your hand up if your the left, like me & sweat more than humanly possible & tag your friend who comes walking out the gym ready to step on the catwalk! @mathewlcarter is the only other human I’ve found to sweat as much as me… one of the million reasons why we’re made for each other 💃🏼🕺🏼 #sweatyhumansunite
