just to feel pretty.

Not sure you are a frequenter or you are new here but I recently decided that I wanted to start upping my game when it came to this little ole blog of mine.

I want to make sure that my readers know that there is effort put into it and while this was a hobby before, I really want to do this full time.  Writing and photography have always been passions of mine and this blog gives me the place to perfect the two.  

Last week I had no intention of going out or doing anything special but I really just wanted to feel pretty.  I recently had a pretty shitty day and I was pretty down on myself.  I got tired of sitting back and just going through the motions of the day without any real effort in myself. Don't get me wrong I really love not wearing make-up more so since having J because he has a habit of biting my face [don't ask] and I don't want the "chemicals" to be ingested by him.  

No this isn't a plea for chemical-free make up it is just me being what I assume is super cautious even though as I type this he is chewing on a baby wipe [what is the deal with that anyways].  

I did my make-up and decided to take a couple of self-portraits which I have been trying to achieve a great SP for quite some time and I don't just mean a selfie, even though I do love me some selfies.

I took a few in a well lit area and then went upstairs for a little less light so you could see the difference.
