She’s been playing us all along huh?
Bella Hadid looks like she’s on a permanent vacation all the time, or so her Instagram feed tells us. One minute she’s in Mexico with her girlfriends or frolicking around on the beach in Jamaica and the next, she jaunts off to a mysterious tropical getaway being pictured on a jet ski with Kendall Jenner.
While we all appreciate dreamy vacation pics that temporarily transport us to those destinations in our heads away from the office, these photos aren’t always posted in real time, just as explained by Bella herself. So the next time you’re looking through your stockpile of old vacay pics to post for some #tbt, don’t ever feel bad.
The jet-setting model says of her enviable posts, “It’s crazy because it looks like I have a lot of down time and a lot of vacations. Especially when people look at my pictures online.”
“But the thing is that I don’t post every day when I’m working but I will post old pictures from previous trips and things which makes it look like I’m on vacation a lot of the time, when actually I’m at work.”
It’s also easy to confuse her work trips with lavish holidays as she explains, “When I’m really intense I will honestly work for four months straight and then I’ll have one weekend off and then I’ll go straight back to work. People think that in between I have so much time off but I only ever take two days off every two weeks, at the maximum.”
At the end of the day, life isn’t always as perf as it looks on Instagram. Hey Bella, thanks for clarifying to make us feel slightly better about our lives..
