Just Me !

87 photos later ... some really shiny, clean shower shots (LOL not including me) in my absurb attempts to co-ordinate snapping a self portrait with my eyes open , smile on my dial and not look like a total dag.

I am so excited my shower(s) is clean and I wanted to tell you !!

Here is just me without makeup after a day cleaning the showers & bathrooms, doing the laundry ..you know the drill.

PS - I rarely wear makeup anyway.


I dislike (intensely) having my photo taken. I shy away from photos because I have different shaped eyes (from a childhood injury and resulting turn) .As well as a few lumps & bumps (from NF1). I've never felt beautiful but it doesn't worry me most days. Though I've always struggled with being just me.

SO I'm posting this as part of Bloggers Without Makeup. Jodie presented this idea
What a great example we will be to our kids, and also to young girls who think they have to look like a magazine cover all the time. (You DON'T ladies! You are gorgeous as you are!)

It has both a fun and more serious aspect , please check out all these gorgeous ladies. It reminds me of Operation Beautiful ...spread the love !
Never miss a post

Hey, where are the naked shower photos?? Oh, I get it, that was a teaser. Great pics, I think you look beautiful. And your boys are adorable.

And by the way, I'm most excellent at maths, especially since I was born 2 years before you (ahem). Young'un.

Your eyes are gorgeous! But ihave always been keen on green and blue eyes, so I guess I am biased:)

Cerry said...

You look great. And congratulations on the clean shower!

mountainmama said...

And just as lovely as I imagined...especially the first one, where your shy sweet smile reminded me so much of the boys (not that they strike me as shy, but...you know....lol). Funny that after all this time, I can finally see what you look like on the outside - 'cos I already know how beautiful the inside is. Mwahhh xxx

Nice to see you. And thanks for promoting positive self-image. From what I see, you have plenty to feel positive about.

I have been reading through your other posts and also wanted to say how happy I am that your hubby's surgery resulted in such positive news - and that your sons' scribbling was erasable ;0)
