If you follow my Instagram feed you would probably be pretty much sick to death of seeing my face.

My face smiling.

My face pouting.

My face pulling a ricidulous face.

My face in outfit photos.

My face in the mirror.

My face lunching.

My face in pieces. An eye here. A nose there.

My face with my Hubby.

My face with my family.

My face grinning madly at the day.

Never in my life have I ever been this me, me, meeee with the camera. I’ve always liked taking photos. Being in them long enough to make memories. That was about it. Enter the iPhone and my selfie obsession started. I blame the iPhone mostly. But Instagram in particular. Because let’s face it, the selfie has been around for a while, but never has it been as much fun as it is now. Instagram, twitter, facebook, flickr…! Everywhere. And a filter here and there helps too.

Personal bloggers are vain. Full stop.

    I always avoided cameras, until I became a blogger. Now I always have something aimed at my face. Maybe we are the opposite of vain and have realised and accepted our imperfections? Rachel xx

      Tomato/Tomahtooo. I think we are. It takes something to post photos of yourself on line. A little bit of bravery, some crazy and a dash of vanity {go on, admit it. Haha}. In fact I have a whole post brewing about just this. 

  • If someone told me that in my 30’s I’d start taking photos of myself to post on the net I would’ve laughed in their face! …And then laughed some more. Some where along the line it became okay. And some where along that line I became okay with being me. Maybe that does have something to do with it?  Love your descriptions of your face just as mush as the photos.

      Ditto. Absolutely me too. 

      And thank you!

  • I’m the same, my instagram is generally self portraits or pictures of my dog! But I really love having sneak peaks into other peoples lives.

      Me too! I love the little moment almost as much as I love the gorgeously styled and present photos. Big fan.
