She strategically pointed her toes, elongating her slender legs as she posed in front of her comfy bed.

Happy days: Earlier this year, the singer marked a milestone 18 months of sobriety, having spoken candidly about her struggles with addiction in the past
In April last year, Lily said she was ‘very pleased’ because ‘an ab was appearing’ after nine months of going tee-total.
Fast-forward to this January, the singer marked a milestone 18 months of sobriety, having spoken candidly about her struggles with addiction in the past.
The star, who married Stranger Things actor David Harbour in Las Vegas last year, has been candid about her addiction struggles and has now celebrated the milestone since quitting drink, drugs and cigarettes.
In posts on her Instagram, Lily shared an image of the keyring given to mark momentous dates dished out by support group Narcotics Anonymous as well as a selfie showing her holding the keyring over her eye.
Lily’s grey keyring read: ‘Clean and serene for eighteen months’, and she shared a shot while holding the token alongside a gushing caption reading: ’18 months clean and sober today. Would recommend!’
Earlier this year, the songstress reflected on past troubles and how she was previously hooked on a drug similar to speed to lose weight while on tour with Miley Cyrus in 2014.
Lily had just returned to music after a lengthy hiatus following the birth of her two daughters; Ethel, nine, and Marnie, eight.
The Smile songstress spoke to DJ Fat Tony on his The Recovery podcast about her own sobriety journey, including her personal lowest point, as she touched on the tour and how she felt – turning to drink, drugs and prostitutes.
After her weight rose to 14st, the 5′ 2″ star began taking a drug similar to speed to shed pounds before the tour, however this send her on a downward spiral and left her debating taking heroin to help her ‘act out’.
She said: ‘I was supporting this girl who was much younger and more attractive than I felt. I was thinking, “I think I have got a drinking problem. And none of this acting out is working any more. Maybe I should try heroin.”‘

Speaking about the lead-up to heading off with Miley, she said: ‘ I got married when I was 24 and I had a baby, I had a baby who died 10 years ago this month…
‘And then I went on to have two successful pregnancies and then about six months after my youngest was born we ran out of money and I had to go back out on the road again. But I was 14 stone and did not feel like a pop star at all.’
She then turned to drugs to lose weight. Lily said: ‘I started taking a drug which is like speed to lose the weight and I got addicted to this drug because it made me feel invincible. And then I ended up on tour in America supporting Miley Cyrus…
‘It was when she was doing Wrecking Ball – it was a highly sexualised tour. I had just spent the last three years pushing babies out. It couldn’t have been less what I felt like.’
Lily went on to say how her relationship with her husband David has changed her life for the better.
She said: ‘I am in a really happy relationship. A really healthy relationship. He is sober, he has been sober for 20 years now – we are thinking of what we are going to do with the rest of our lives…
‘I feel a sense of… I felt like I really had to prove people wrong in the past and that people had all these preconceptions of who I was whereas now I get to wake up in the morning and interact with my children and them feel loved and protected.’
