Wakey, Wakey, Me no Makey.

So, as I've been on vacation, I was really behind all of you on taking Fat Bridesmaid's no-makeup-photo challenge.

Well, I swore to myself that I'd do it and participate, and dammit, even though I'm late, I'm gonna do it.

I really like this idea because it reminds me of a GREAT blog post my friend Beth did about a photo she saw of herself and about self-love. Here's a little excerpt:

I may sometimes feel envious of the women with slim figures and perfect skin, but you know which women I am the most jealous of? The ones who seem a little eccentric, who wear clothes that make them feel good even if they aren’t the latest style, who don’t wear make-up and just leave their hair be, who dance like nobody’s watching - the women who are comfortable in their skin. I want it, and I’m going to get it.

For more, you should go over to her blog and read it.


And without further ado, here's my photo:





I'll post again later with some more fun photos from my vacation! :~)

Time to take the 'ex' off the blog title. I agree with Shmologna, it all starts with your eyes.

Miz said...

you are so beautiful.
the eyes
the glow
the facefaceface.

Im a big believer n no makeup--and those who have met me in person can attest it ISNT because society would say I dont need it.

for me
to me
it's simply a mask.

love the photos.

You are beautiful... you don't need make-up at all!

Great pic (you can take the "ex" out of "ex hot girl" as far as I'm concerned), and belated birthday wishes.

You look beautiful with or without makeup.
