Instagram is full of attractive, beautiful people.
By being able to craft brief glimpses into each others lives, we can pretend that our best side is our normal side. The filters, the photoshop, the lightest touches make a world of difference, and it’s not always true. Or fair. Some even think it’s downright deceitful. But whatever’s the case, we can agree on one thing.
So whenever someone comes along being brutally honest, no matter how ugly it is, you can’t help but appreciate it. Julie Houts is one such person. She started dabbling in doodles when she worked for J.Crew and now, she’s boasting about 200K followers on Instagram.
