You know all those memes that were doing the rounds there last year about beauty bloggers? All, 'what they think I do' vs 'what I really do'?
Well, gotta say, that kind of applies to pictures of yourself too, doesn't it? I love taking an auld picture of myself at a great angle where my jowls (wah!) are tautened out and I have cheekbones, am well lit and altogether presentable looking. Like the above. Spangles are optional. Oh ok. I photoshopped them in. Fine.
Then I catch myself in the mirror or a shop window and it's actually much more like this.
