I have been in my own zone this weekend. Relaxing from the virtual world and just doing me.
Today I’m introducing reality me to the throw but with a twist.
I’m doing a social experiment in real life and I wanted to tell you all about it.
Yes you will have to watch the video, as that is the whole point. You have to see the visual behind this experiment to understand the actual experiment.
Let me know your thoughts after because I sure have many myself.
I credit my mum for the cheekbones as its a family trait.
I also credit my mum for my amazing hair and chirpy disposition despite all things that are in the world to bring us down.
My youthful skin is courtesy of regular use of Oil of Olay and using baby bum wipes to wipe makeup off.
My eyes are a result of eating all the carrots I was told to when I was younger under the belief I would go blind if I didn’t. Fact though, I’m still as blind as a bat!
Essentially I credit myself for just looking amazing on an app. After all I had to push the buttons!!!!
Mostly I credit the company who came up with the FACE APPwho have now confused me and made me think about this social experiment just to see how far it will go.

I’m familiar with the use of Photoshop in fashion photography (and tabloid journalism) and the ethical and societal implications that come from such airbrushing and manipulation. Of course, the original airbrushing predates Photoshop, that terms comes from film protographic processing.
But that was still images. Now, we have real-time manipulation, and on our phones and tablets. And it’s not just visuals that can be changed – with a little time and processing, you can literally put words into people’s mouths and place them where they’ve never been.
Which begs the question — can we trust our own eyes and ears any more? I find that truly terrifying.

Yup. We cannot really!
Another blogger mentioned an app that can make you appear slim. I’m going to check that out too.
I just think more people need to really grasp that what we see as aesthetically pleasing is not always necessarily the truth. More so now days with such manipulations.
Actually very scary as I can see where this could be used in a very bad way c
