Me Unfiltered

-Beauty is in the eye of the beholder-

Sometimes as a blogger I feel the need to strive to be this ideal that we feel is acceptable, buffed, photoshopped and perfect. But if your anything like me and live in the real world you are not those things. You are imperfect, flawed, lumpy, and use filters to make your images look better. Well sometimes as a blogger, and as a female I feel that I need to let people see what I really look like. No filter, or makeup done (gasp!) and that I am just a regular female in a world bombarded by images of what we perceive as perfection. Honestly, we must come to terms with our bodies and that they are great they way they are. I suffer from insecurties like everyone else (just ask my BF about the verbal diarrhea i had the other night) yet he thinks I am the most gorgeous person he knows. You know why? My intellect and attitude about life. Ask any man and most likely he will tell you that he is attracted to confidence and attitude. It took me about 20 years before I could accept myself and know I will never be what society shows as an ideal female, i’m not skinny, I think my hair sucks most days, my mascara runs, I wear glasses, and I wear sneakers everywhere. But you know what, I’m healthy and happy and regardless the sun will rise and set everyday.

So I wanted to share some untouched photos of myself and show you that its ok to be you. Make sure to check me on the ‘gram at bkblueagave and tell me your story

Buenos aires

So Friday I was feigning for some beef, if ya know what I mean…and I had heard about this Argentinean steakhouse downtown over on 6th St and Ave A. So off me and the novio went for some steak and quality time. I had read about this place and been meaning to make my way on down. Since I got out early we got there before the dinner rush. The place has exposed brink that is covered with pennants from various footbol (aka soccer to us Anglos) leagues. There was also TV’s broadcasting the games. As the dinner crowd showed up the candles came out and the lights went down. The service was good, our waiter had more personality then the hostess and was great about keeping up with us. We started with bread and butter, and he ordered the beef kabobs and I got the skirt steak with mashed potatoes. A note, if you are not a serious meat eater, I would avoid this place as the Argentineans are KNOWN for beef.

And we were not disappointed either. My steak came with the traditional chimichurri sauce and was cooked to perfection (medium well). My novio’s kabobs were tender and juicy and easy to eat. Because nothing is worse than getting meat that is just this said of rawhide….. Overall the meat was tender and juicy and seasoned well. Even my boyfriend was impressed with the tenderness of the meat. Now of course if you have learned anything its that I also need desert. So one panqueque de manzana y cafe coming up! We got the apple crepe with ice cream and two coffees. And man the coffee tasted like someone’s abuela put their ankles in it, sock and all (which is a good thing ask any Hispanic). Overall the food was great and the service was decent. I’d give it 4 out of 5 forks and cant wait to go back.
