Have you ever played two truths and a lie?
It is one of my favorite games to play with my friends well, that and Fuck, Marry or Kill (but I’ll save that game for a different day). In this edition of Fashion Blogger Secrets Revealed two truths and a lie, I am digging deep in my fashion blogger vault and dropping some serious truth bombs.
…because we all know that behind the perfectly filtered lives of fashion bloggers there are some serious behind the scenes secrets. So I present to you:
2 Truths + A Lie Fashion Blogger Secrets Revealed Edition
– I’m only wearing this fabulous Free People turtleneck because I am trying to conceal my post-Kybella swollen chin/neck situation.
– EVERYTHING on Instagram is REAL.
– These pants could not be more uncomfortable.

And now for the answers:
1. TRUTH – I’m only wearing this fabulous Free People turtleneck because I am trying to conceal my post-Kybella swollen chin/neck situation.
Yes, this a serious truth bomb. It has now been a full two weeks since my Kybella treatment and I am still rocking a turtleneck + recovering.
My friends over at Lieberman & Parikh hooked a sister up with my very first Kybella treatment two weeks ago and yes, the recovery from Kybella is anything but glamorous (full blog post to come on this topic). Day 1 was by far the worst (I mean can’t leave the house BAD), but now I can leave the house and almost get back to my normal styling. However, my wardrobe over the last two weeks has been filled with turtleneck tops and anything with a high collar – insert the fabulous Free People turtleneck in this post.
Now, I’m not sure if every fashion blogger would share on social media that they just had a treatment to remove the excess fat that accumulates beneath their chin…but I did and I am ready to share the details from my Kybella treatment with you. In fact, feel free to leave any Kybella related questions in the comments and I will be sure to answer them in my post.
2. LIE – EVERYTHING on Instagram is REAL.
ALL the lies. We all know by now that very little on Instagram is real. I mean I can’t tell you the last time I posted a photo in real-time. Everything is strategically planned, tuned and ready to go. Bam! Fashion blogger secrets revealed!
3. TRUTH – These pants could not be more uncomfortable.
I don’t think I have ever hated a pair of pants as much as I hate these pants. On a scale of 1 to 10, I am at a 15! Let me paint a picture for you real quick. Have you ever seen the episode of Friends where Ross wears his new leather pants on a date? If not, let me break down…
Ross buys a pair of leather pants which Chandler finds ridiculous but he cannot tease him. When Ross has a date, he finds the pants highly uncomfortable, retreating to the bathroom to cool them off. However, he cannot pull them back up and with some of Joey’s unhelpful suggestions over a cellphone, he turns into a mess with cosmetic products all over his legs. The date ends.
This is literally me everytime I wear these pants. And a special thank you to my lovely sister for reminding me of this episode of Friends while I was overheating and trying to get these AWFUL pants back on. Don’t buy them #TrustMe.
