Have you ever had a bad looking day? One that you didn't know about until you saw the photographic proof? How long did I look like that? Why didn't someone tell me? I find myself saying this often. It usually happens after I have actually spent some time trying to look good, hair, clothes makeup etc. Then you catch your reflection somewhere and you look hideous! I seem to have skin that sucks makeup up... I put it on and a few hours later it is all gone.... lipstick, blush, foundation - the lot... gone!!
Ok so I am not a supermodel, but these ugly days came to mind after reading a friend's blog about an "accidental" mullet haircut she received at the hands of a friend. There is so much tragedy out there. I still had braces when I went to the year 12 formal, though it didn't really matter at the time. Until years later a guy visiting our house saw the photo and said that I looked like "Josie Grosey"!! You know that Drew Barrymore character that has braces and goes back to school to become cool again! Break my heart (BTW the guy was single... DAH obviously he didn't know how to talk to girls)
Now you will probably all be kind and not say that the above photo is not shocking... but it is only a scan of the original, so I am sparing you all the gory details, but lets just say that the skin is blotchy red, my eyes are not in line, so if I tilt my head the wrong way, I look lopsided, and well I think I was too skinny at this time (2 small children close in age) and this photo was taken at my 25th birthday party - OUCH! Well I like to say, it was late, the lighting bad, and I always look bad in photos taken with a flash... so those are my excuses and I am sticking to them!
So to all my "sometimes" ugly friends out there... You are beautiful!
