-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
