What Did You Realize Wasn't Actually "Fancy" Once You Became An Adult?

The orange chicken bowl at Applebee's was PEAK luxury.

When you're a kid, literally everything in the world seems fancy to you.

Like this very fancy restaurant:

Or having a high-end salon experience:

How about a lavish drink for a special occasion?

When we get a little older and more experienced, however, we look back and realize that maybe some of these things aren't so fancy after all.

This isn't actually skincare for the highly sophisticated, coastal elite. It's just something your aunt had in her linen closet and passed off as a birthday gift.
