Yesterday, Shanina Shaik Instagrammed a photo of herself wielding an axe and claimed she’d spent the weekend chopping up slabs of wood near a popular hiking trail in Woodstock, New York.
At first glance, one might think the the 26-year-old model is a natural lumberjack, but don’t be fooled by the axe, hiking boots, and tomboyishly pulled-back hair. Shaik is faking it. Any experienced wood-chopper can tell by the color of the logs behind her that they’ve been lying there for a while—and that they were cut with a chainsaw, not an axe. (The smooth edges are the giveaway.) So what exactly was Shaik doing out there in the woods? In her next post, she confessed the truth: She’s been working on a “special film project” that she can’t wait to share with her fans.
Even if the lumberjack thing was just pretend, Shaik does have plenty of real skills, and she regularly shows those off on Instagram, too. She’s great at all sorts of things, including:
Shoulder-shimmying while slicing avocados:
Cuddling cute creatures while looking very cute herself:
Shaking her hips in workout gear:
Taking hot selfies in the mirror:
