this is why i can't post pictures of myself

I took a really cute selfie of myself this am, but since I still won't allow myself the vanity of self portraits on instagram, i thought I'd write about it instead, since I'm a writer and writing about myself is okay.
I like cut my hair a few weeks ago, and now it's growing out hardbody cause i've been downing 5,000mcgs of biotin daily because i don't know long hair is a woman's true beauty even though I think I look better with shorter hair so whatever. But anyways I like pulled back my hair into this messy sloppy bun, but then left some out in the front, kind of like a messy aliyah bang, and then swept the longer pieces under my face so it kind of looks like a short haircut I'd get if I wasn't so afraid of not being able to make a pony tail.
My makeup is poppin cause ive actually been trying to give a fuck these days, with like some liner so my eyes look bedroom sexy but bright, and i learned to do my brows (which are also growing in hammertime because of the biotin, ftmfw, since i got them overwaxed years ago and the hairs on my left brow had decided to go on a growth strike), and put on some blush, which is my fav, along with some hot and naughty mac mascara, which i am addicted to. But the piece de resistance is my prince noir lips, which make me feel super sexy in a nia long from love jones way, which is exactly what i was going for, so yay for execution. (Don't worry, I don't do duck face though, my expression is kind of an open mouth smize, just like tyra taught me.)
Ive got this louis vuitton gray scarf on that i love that i stole from my mom who got it from her friend when her friend's mom died and i was just like, lady, i will do this scarf more justice, and she wisely didn't fight me for it (my mom, not the dead lady). It's kind of intensely wrapped around my neck cause i don't fuck with no cold breezes on my neck, but like, it's still cute.
And then there's like a light flare in the upper right hand corner of the pic from my ceiling fan/light, which is cool, but not on purpose, because i really don't know how to take selfies and I really refuse to learn how to, since then i'd be all vain and shit, and really, who has time for that?
My lack of photo skills also explains my iphone 3 (i know, sad face) prominent placement in the photo, along with my nails. However it doesn't explain why my nails look janky, which is really just the outcome of an inexperience woman wearing gel nails and too lazy to get them redid in a timely fashion before shit gets real. It is a cute mani, but it is a dead mani, with new growth poppin like a motherfucker. Oh well. One thing at a time.
So yea. That's my cute selfie i wanted to share with ya'll so i could get mad likes and feel good about myself, but i'm too self-conscious to post self-portraits so I wrote about it instead.

  1. Annnnndddd now I wanna see the selfie cuz. It was prolly bangin.

  2. Hi, I love your blog and when I came across this post, I had a burning question. It really has nothing to do with the focus of this post but I'm curious about the biotin you mentioned. Does it really work for you?
