Zoe Foster Blake’s life might look perfect if Instagram is anything to go by, but she admits “It seems perfect because we choose what we portray.”

Zoe has the funny man husband Hamish Blake, a gorgeous chubby-cheeked boy, Sonny, and a thriving career as an author/beauty guru/founder of Go-To skin care.

Perfect. Right?

“It seems perfect because we choose what we portray,” Zoe told the ABC.

“Having said that, I do feel very blessed. I feel so lucky and so grateful that I often think, ‘this is all too good, something’s gotta give’. That’s that twisted human condition where you go, ‘well, this isn’t going to last forever’.”

“And then I flip it again and go, ‘no, no, you’re allowed to be happy. You’re allowed to work hard and have good things and do good things’.”

Zoe even revealed she and Hamish sometimes sleep in separate beds.  “I engineered it so my husband was in the spare room. We’re both pretty tired at the moment and exhausted, and he tends to snore when he does that. So I kicked him out knowing that I’d need my brain today,” she said.

Although it’s nice to hear, I think people who believe anyone has a “perfect life” live in a fairy tale world.

Of course celebs, like us, only share snippets of our day/week/month/year that LOOK like we have it all on a platter. That’s the joy of social media, sharing the good stuff and hiding away from the bad parts of our day. Nobody wants to share that stuff. Although some of it is pretty funny.

    • PS – I only WISH I had a spare room to kick my hubby out to!!!

  • Just a person like the rest of us. Of course their life isn’t perfect, no one’s is.


  • I don’t know this woman but I can relate with what she says.


  • so nice to see she is human too and admits that as a celeb they only show us the best bits!

    Makes me feel good knowing that even the ones that have it all also have crappy days too


  • Did we really need to be told what we see of people’s lives on social media is only a tiny snippet of what’s really going on?!


  • Yep, the shiny pretty stuff is only one side of anyone’s life.


  • I love this little family
    Brings joy to me to see them so happy
    Great people
    Adorable little sonny
    I really want to read her book to!


  • I must admit I have never heard of her. Maybe it’s because I don’t follow social media or watch that much tv.


  • Zoe tells it like it is! No body lives in a totally perfect world!


  • She sounds like a normal person. No big news there
