I originally decided to post these because I was hyper and thought they were hilarious and assumed other people needed a hearty laugh too. Bring on the next morning and I was very hesitant about this post. Vulnerability is difficult, dear ones. And daytime brings about a clarity that night shoots out the window. I did not want to show these photos.
Then I heard this TED talk titled The Power of Vulnerability by Brene Brown. Please listen to it.
Before it was even finished, I jumped on this post to write a little more.
I want to be a vulnerable blogger, makeup artist, wife, friend, human. That doesn't mean I HAD to post these. But for me, I feel a great need to look perfect on the outside. I'm a makeup artist and aspiring creative director! It's how I'm supposed to be, right? Expect perfection.
But no, today I choose to show these hilarious photos for two reasons. 1: To allow myself to be vulnerable and 2: because laughter is extremely healthy.
I asked Nik to take some outfit shots of me and this is what ensued. I call it "Bad Day to Be a Blogger".
And you're welcome for these.
