So i was thinking in the shower (it's one of those place perfect for thinking ... like the car ... i have some of best ideas there), tonight after my run, about how sore my legs were. (There is a point to this story ...) & my legs aren't my "favourite" anatomical part but they are strong. They "pound the pavements" (excuse the cliche) on a regular basis, they've made it through a half marathon & keep me going through a busy bartending or serving shift. So i should be proud of them, they can run 5 miles without even hurting & that's something.
So then it got me thinking about all the parts of me (stay clean people) ... about how we spend our lives putting ourselves down, trying to be someone we're not, idolizing the photos of the rich & famous. & as a photographer, who sees beauty all around me it's ironic that i find it so hard to see in myself.
So I'm setting a challenge & having my first give away all in one ... the prize is your choice of any 10x8 or 8x8 fine art photograph from my shop but in return you need to leave a comment telling me the "good" things about you. & it must be good, positive & the funniest, most honest answer wins. I want you to put yourself out there & be proud of everything that you are ...!!
So here goes ...
I have boobs (yes i said boobs), a waist & hips ... i may not be the next Kate moss or Gucci girl but i would have rocked renaissance paintings.
I love yes i said love my eyes ... they are green (& apparently hazel sometimes ... if you'd believe my husband, we don't). I have to wear glasses because said eyes don't function terrible well ... but this 1. allows me to change up my appearance on a whim (such a wonderfully English word) & 2. when you wake up after "that night" & the world remains all fuzzy it's a wonderful relief.
My Mum blessed me with wonderful skin ... it is this skin that has people asking me if i still live at home with my parents, gives me rosy cheeks & even the occasional freckle. I'm that person who has the huge ass zit on their forehead that no one else sees but me!
& finally each & every scar on my body ... because whilst the story beside them may not be good they make up who i am now & i can't change that neither would i want to!
& now it' your turn to tell me about your best parts ... what makes you you, what you're proud of & aren't afraid to tell the world about ... & you have it till January 1st to do so! Leave it in a comment along with your email address so i can contact the winner.
I wish you all a wonderful holiday season!!
