I needed a photo for an application form the other day and I was genuinely struggling to even find a photo, let alone one that I felt happy with. I did find several on my mobile phone taken by the children but me peeling potatoes, from behind, from three foot off the floor was never going to be my good side.
It is coming up to Britmums live and it would be nice if someone recognised me and said hello. It is so embarrassing doing all the hellos and having someone stare at you blankly! So to double the number of photos of me on the blog I give you not one but five. I think they all show a different side to me, a different aspect of my personality, but not entirely sure that any of them are my good side.
In truth, I was trying to find an angle that didn't accentuate my sagging jawline. How is it that I still feel 24 yet my passport says I can add two decades to that? Pesky passport.
So there you are. This is me.
And next time, I may even take a self portrait after I've put on some makeup!
Joining in with Sticky Fingers and the theme of Self Portrait for The Gallery.

Your avatar and your photo on your post look so different! I hope I will recognise you xDelete
Beautiful. I love that you've labelled all of your looks.ReplyDelete
I've thought of a few few more since ;-)Delete
I want to know what you were scheming!! lolReplyDelete
I'm always scheming something. never actually do anything about it mind you!Delete
Lovely natural portraits! I too will recognise you at BritMums now! :)ReplyDelete
You are on my list of 'must meet' bloggers!Delete
Great self-portraits and nice post. xxReplyDelete
i really love this and your photos are beautiful! if i had to send off a picture for an interview i think i would melt down! xReplyDelete
These are gorgeous photos - you don't need make up!!ReplyDelete
Sadly I very much do as I can't walk round with a clever picmonkey filter over my face!Delete
You don't need make-up! I look at these and see amazing eyebrows (wow, such great arches), a face with so much character, wisdom, cheekiness and stories to tell. I love the way your hair falls, curling at your jaw bone and the natural glow of pink in your cheeks. My favs are wistful and dreaming - but they are wonderful together as a collage - what a lovely idea!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much. I have more than a natural glow going on now.
*blushes some more*
Beautiful photo's! You look gorgeous in all of them xReplyDelete
YAY! You look stunning without the make up missus :) xReplyDelete
Aw fanks xDelete
Oh you don't need make up Mrs! You lovely bloody lovely :)ReplyDelete
The wonders of picmonkey filters sadly cannot be applied in real life :-)Delete
These are beautiful, love the knowing one :) xxReplyDelete
*looks knowingly your way* :-)Delete
Hello pretty lady! Just what are you scheming...? ;)ReplyDelete
Aha! Something that will probably never come to fruition ;-)Delete
Fab photos! I wish I looked that good without make-up! I shall try and commit that face/those faces to memory so I can come up and say hi at Britmums.ReplyDelete
I look forward to meeting you. I will know your hair xDelete
Love the dreaming one, beautiful light, angle, and subject :)ReplyDelete
Thank you xDelete
Oh hello lovely you! I'm so glad you took the plunge and put these up, I'll definitely be saying hello if I spot you at BritMums! Gorgeous pics xReplyDelete
I am going to make an effort to take more selfies with the children too.Delete
I like wistful. A lovely shot.ReplyDelete
Thank you xDelete
I'm like you and don't like to put photos of myself out there but these are lovely!ReplyDelete
It was hard to take the plunge but I'm glad I did.Delete
This is probably the best and most honest self portrait I have seen. Every angle is beautiful and really shows you.ReplyDelete
