Every week, we’re participating in #totalhonestytuesday, sharing the things we’d usually keep off of social media, and giving a little more insight into our real (and very un-perfect) lives. Hopefully, in doing this, we can all feel a little less pressure to appear a certain way online, and remember that everyone around us is much more than just the highlight reel we normally see.
#totalhonestytuesday ….Everyone's life APPEARS perfect on IG…well mine is NOT! I need to wash clothes like YESTERDAY! But I just don't feel like it!😏 #DEDEinthemorning #DEcidingtobehonest #keepingitreal

So, last week I came across a #totalhonestytuesday post and it inspired me. This is a dedication to that post. I would encourage everyone to jump on board and share your #totalhonestytuesday . The "unfiltered" side of what your Tuesday really looks like. This is mine, a job I've been putting off for a month or so but have finally decided to take on. Im spending my Tuesday night sorting, reorganizing and "letting go" of the unnecessary packaging of my makeup collection. #wishmeluck #makeup #melbournemua #nars #stila #hourglass #toofaced #bobbibrown #benefit #ysl #smashbox #urbandecay #eyeko #bdb #byterry #mac

Allow me to interrupt the regularly scheduled programming of cute decor pics to present this #totalhonestytuesday post of the hidden office corner by the back door that consists of bulk recycling we have to take out and a rug we have to return, both of which I've been too lazy to do. Yay!

Sometimes you just don't feel like cooking a nutritious and delicious dinner every single night. This seemed like a totally appropriate (and still delicious) replacement. #totalhonestytuesday #latergram

This #TotalHonestyTuesday I'm spending the first night in a week by myself, relaxing, and snacking. Normally I would be justifying the chips with the fact that I'm eating a lot of squash soup, but truthfully the chips are gross because the bag has been open in my room for the last three days. That being said, getting to chill out by myself and not give a shit feels really really good.

#totalhonestytuesday: One of the not very glam parts of my life is that I'm terrible about pulling at my hair, chipping off my nail polish, or even pulling out my eyelashes when I'm stressed. So as a birthday present, I got a collection of stress balls to help me ~find my chill because I need to put them in every corner of my life (the chill pill is even small enough to fit in my purse!)

#totalhonestytuesday This year is my fourth attempt at #NaNoWriMo. My last three have been far from successful (I could make excuses, but it's really just because I'm lazy). This year I'm determined to win. I always forget just how much I miss writing until I begin again. 618 words down; 49,382 to go.

Well done @essenaoneill for bringing the contrived world of some 'health and fitness' Instagram accounts to light. I think it's important to recognise that many of these photos and lifestyles are unrealistic. But real congratulations to @blogilates Cassey Ho who has never fallen into this trap and indeed makes a point of showing her followers what is realistic and achievable and never promotes useless or even dangerous products for money. Also to @faganchelsea for the creation of #totalhonestytuesday we need a few more girls like you around! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

#TotalHonestyTuesday it's only November 3rd and I already have Christmas things. I have an insanely difficult time dealing with seasonal winter blues and I get down right mopey and lethargic. Keeping myself busy with holiday things from Thanksgiving till Valentine's Day is the only way I can cope with the cold, dark, short days.

I miss you way too much right now @ykostenyuk. Business trips are not all rainbows and butterflies that people imagine them to be. It is the outlook that makes them so. But the other side of it all is they're a lot of sacrifice and exhaustion. The only driving force being loving what I do. I am grateful for them because it is at times like this do I especially feel that I love you more than anything in the world. #love #totalhonestytuesday

I'm 28 today. When I was little, I thought I'd be a grown-up by this age. Now, I'm pretty sure that adulting just means figuring out how to take better care of yourself and appreciating your loved ones even more. I have an awesome mom, a bunch of amazing friends, and a job I'm in love with. Most days I forget how lucky I am and obsess over all the things I haven't accomplished yet. My bday wish? To learn how to be grateful more often #totalhonestytuesday
