This story is so completely awesome, that I had to give it the photo-essay parody treatment.
A beautiful, young, rich couple (a model and an extreme athlete) blew up the internet this week by posting photos of their travels all over the world documenting their fabulous exploits. They show us "what a fairytale relationship looks like," with a zillion pictures of their hot, young, muscular, tan, bodies climbing cliff faces on tropical islands, kissing puppies, flying in helicopters, massaging each other's footsies, and my personal fave, this shot of them licking each other's tongues next to a surfboard in Hawaii:
As the linked article points out, "it's easy to get caught up in the envy of seeing a young and beautiful couple enjoying a life where money clearly isn’t a problem, but that’s not the point. Their photos and videos should inspire all of us to make the best of whatever we have while we can, which is something they’re clearly very good at. The money certainly helps, but even without it, love and adventurous spirits like theirs will do much to provide you with a beautiful life."
These two haven't seen the likes of One Hot Mess, because I'm about to school the internet in what it's like to live a REAL LIFE FAIRYTALE!! Peep this, bitches!
