So, being a blogger is strange, right? We all agree with that. We all live our lives on the internet, and part of having your internet presence is controlling (ha) what you put out there for others to see.
I know I'm not the only one who takes 9023840923 pictures, and then scours every one, and then Photoshops them and PicMonkeys them to death, until they look good enough for everyone else to see. I do it, you do it, and if you're one of those girls that's all "nope, I'm just that pretty all the time, I don't *neeeeeeeeed* makeup or Photoshop evarrrrrr!" we probably wouldn't be friends. Because you're a lying liar who lies.
And always looking drop-dead gorgeous on the internet can be hard, right? I see other girls pictures all the time and I'm all "gah, she is SO pretty. i love her hair/makeup/clothes/skin/fingernail polish, and her pictures always look sooooo good." to myself. I feel the pressure, and I know you guys do too. It's natural to end up comparing yourself to other people, especially when you're typically only seeing the best parts of someone else's life.
So lest you think that I am a beautiful special snowflake who always looks flawless and my life is perfect, let me drop some truth on you: some days, I look a hot mess.
92382308th picture? Sure, I'm down.
This particular photo shoot had several gems, as you can see.
I don't even know with this one.
I mean, if your margarita was almost gone, you'd make the same face. You know you would.
And then, there's this one. I should really keep my facial expressions in check, right?
So there you have it, my friends. I hope this didn't shatter your flawless opinions about me and how perfect I am. That would really be a shame, right?
