the year in photobooth

So, yeah, I know how eat-arse this is but it was actually kinda fun too. While normal people tend to use the mirror to check how they look before they go out, I’ve gotten into the habit of doing that on photo-booth. I don’t do it every time I leave the house, generally only when I’m wearing make-up to check I don’t look too clownish and to make sure my hair doesn’t look too stupid. I was worried I was the only person who did this, but you guys made me feel like I was not alone on my facebook page, thanks!

Going through these I realised a few things :

1)  I really like khaki green, especially my Uniqlo khaki green jacket.  2) I really like pink. 3) I wear the same things a lot. 4) I’ve been making the effort to smile more. 5) Despite previous said efforts, there is still a lot of bitch-face going on. 6) The majority of these are taken in New York, which means I don’t wear make-up that often in NZ, partly because I’m always sleeping in and running late for work so run out of time to do so, and partly because being in another country makes me feel like dressing up more. 7) bright lipstick is fun.

    Ohh, I do this too. Def not alone! Occasionally use the shiny back of my phone or the self-photo function of the camera on it for a mirror too, does the trick when needed!
