I'm not sure about you guys, but whenever I look at other blogs the first thing that comes to mnd is 100% JEALOUSY! How is their hair always so perfect? How do they walk around in high heels all day? Why do I not look that good on a Monday morning? I can't exactly guarantee that many people think the same about me, but here's a little heads up just in case: blogging is not real life. Today's OOTD is an outfit from about a week or two ago (because right now the weather is giving me a big fat no for any outfit pics) and - thanks to the beauty of an airbrush tool - my dark circles have been completely erased. And those heels? They didn't stay on my feet for long. We're so familiar with magazines editing images (let's not talk about that Kim K cover..) that we kind of forget that just about anyone has the power to do it from the comfort of their own home. I for one am certainly far from perfect - especially in the looks department - which is why I thank the internet gods for the wonders of Photoshop every single day. But here's a little secret..right now I'm editing this post with semi-greasy hair, four huge hormanl spots on my face (#girlprobs) and some eyebrows that need some serious plucking. Ain't nobody got time for that.
