Liesl Laurie Shares How She Got Badly Bruised Trying To Take The Perfect Instagram Photo! If you ever wondered just what lengths people go for that perfect social media post, you might want to thank our favourite relatable girl Liesl who shared her experience.
On her recent solocation to Bali, Liesl was serving all kinds of vacation goals on Instagram but one of her most iconic photos and with a little injury. Liesl shared the story on her Instagram in an attempt to show her fans that nothing is ever as it seems especially on social media.
“So here’s the story behind that beautiful temple picture in Bali:
Right before that shot was taken I landed on my knees scraping them open and bruising them so bad it looks like I’ve been in a car accident.
Basically to get that majestic jump I had to raise my feet quite high off the ground and by doing so my right foot got stuck in my dress. As I was about to land I realized that I was going to fall and I decided to just go with it to prevent myself from getting any major injuries. I got back up looked at the photographer, counted to three and jumped again – That was the moment, that was the shot,” Liesl shared.

I urge you to travel. As far and as much as possible. Work ridiculous shifts to save your money. Go without the latest iPhone. Throw yourself out of your comfort zone. Find out how other people live & realize that the world is a much bigger place than the city you live in. And when you come home, home may still be the same & yes, you may go back to the same job but something in your mind will have changed. And trust me, that changes everything ❤️ Ps. One day I’ll tell you the story behind getting this shot 😓
