See how the other half lives

Comedian and actress, Celeste Barber achieved internet fame with her series of photos in which she copies the poses of celebrities, demonstrating how bizarre they look when done by an ordinary person. In this series, she has created short videos in which she tries out something demonstrated by a celebrity, such as making one of Miranda Kerr's insanely expensive organic breakfast smoothies, comparing the contents of her handbag with Posh Spice's clutch bag or attempting to recreate the "natural" look Kylie Jenner's makeup artist gives her using 60 different products.

Celeste's down to earth attitude is a breath of fresh air, and a useful reminder for those of us who might forget that it's okay that our lives don't live up to our Pinterest page because nobody else's lives do either, unless they have a team of makeup artists, personal trainers and wads of cash to help them along. Each episode is between 3 and 5 minutes long, so they're pretty quick to watch. iView rates them PG because there is a bit of explicit language.

Commiserate and laugh along with Celeste as she attempts feats that are not really for us mere mortals.
