everyone has their thing.

You know you do. You know, that thing in your picture that you always look for. Is it a double chin? Squinty eyes? (I'm guilty of this... it always looks like my eyes are closed!) Poor posture? If you don't have your thing - you're wayyyyyyy too comfortable in front of the camera and should probably drop your career and move to Hollywood. Immediately.

Annyyywayys. My thing is my HANDS. I shudder just thinking about them. They. Are. Not. Cute. I bite my nails, have knobby knuckles from cracking them constantly, pick at my cuticles, etc. I could go on and on. So first thing I look for in a picture is how fugly they're looking. I'm learning to hide them but they still creep on occasion.
Without further adieu..... I unleash my insecurity upon you........sigh.....



{Excuse my poor 'paint' abilities. It was my first time drawing on my pictures and I was in a rush. }
Have a great weekend! xoxo

ok. i really don't see much wrong with your hands. i see long fingers. yes, i see short nubby nails. i have those too. i think your face is too awesome to stop looking at anyway!

but yes, i look at my nose. from the side it is nice and straight on, it is large and in charge.

you are so funny... I would have never noticed that if you wouldn't have pointed it out. You crack me up... but I always notice my stomach! That is probably the first thing I look at!

You totally hit the nail on the head. I have a few things I always look for in pictures. The double chin and posture issue is what I look for in pics of myself.

And your hands aren't bad. I wouldn't notice them if you didn't point them out. Its funny how we're always more critical of ourselves.

Aww, don't be so hard on yourself! I used to bite my nails and cuticles like CRAZY! My fingers were a hot mess-- nothing like yours. My issue is always my hair, ugg. Don't we ALL have things like that? No one would EVER notice it, but it's all we can even think about. Women... ;-)

Gurrrrl, you so crazy! You have nice hands! They're not weird :) You're weird for thinking their weird. Nothin but love for ya!

haha, i think you have great hands! seriously! mine are like the man hands on jerry seinfield! have you seen that episode? ugh. anyway, i totally know what you mean about having a "thing". mine is my mouth. i always feel like i have the fakest smile and try to relax my jaw a little and it always turns out LAME.

Hi, Lane said...

I have the same hand phobia! I broke one of my fingers in high school, so it's majorly crooked (who needs surgery when it's the middle of softball season!?!). I'm double jointed to, so that makes it worse! Of course, I don't ever notice your hands in your pictures & I wouldn't have if you hadn't pointed it out, but I always notice mine.

I look for my Mr. Ed smile... when I smile too big and have gums showing... yuck.
And that yellow top... so jealous. It looks amazing on you. I look awful in yellow.
