We're all guilty of it -- purposely posting misleading photos and statuses to portray a certain image of ourselves in the social media world.
With the rise of filters and geotags and photoshop, it's hard to discriminate between what is real life and what's all for Instagram.
A 20-something girl's life is definitely exciting, but it's not all hashtags and rainbows and pool parties and hard bodies (even though we desperately try to portray it that way).
Because it's so easy to fool everyone on social media, here's a 20-something girl's real life versus her glorified, heavily-edited Instagram life.
