Behold: an awkward capture of myself in full sneeze. I think I love it because it's the antithesis of the purpose of the "selfie," a capture usually of an overwhelming flattering content. This selfie is so very NOT FLATTERING. 

I'll confess: I'm pretty fucking good at taking a flattering selfie. In fact NOBODY takes a more flattering picture of moi, than moi. FACT: I don't know of another human being who has the patience or willingness to milk out a good angle, perfect lighting or the persistence to keep taking picture  upon picture to get THAT PHOTO: the one that makes me look VERY GOOD. 

But I'm a sucker for an interesting photo, and to be honest, flattering photos especially selfies are often BORING. Because omission is boring and perfection is dull. 

That said, trust me, I'll be posting some flattering self portraits and selfies because, well, no one else seems interested in doing it. 

(For even more disgustingly flatteringly proliferation of selfies, do check out my Instagramz here)

How do you feel about taking selfies? Are you into it? Do you do it? Any tip or tricks of the trade?

I love this picture of you!

I take my selfies with a CAMERA, so I hope for the best, since I can't see if I'm centred. Hence, not too many selfies!

I'm loving this kind of spontaneous selfies! I'm notoriously bad at them, so I'm glad to have my own personal photographer at my disposal! xxx

This is a much more interesting photo than a conventionally flattering selfie. I do agree that no one else can take a more flattering photo of me than me, because as you said, no one else has the patience to find the right light and angle, and sometimes, that's what I want to post.

I was recently looking through old pinterest pics of haircuts I liked and your pics were in there. I remembered your blog from, like eight years ago and thought I'd check out to see if you're still around. Low and behold you are. I've been looking at your recent posts and you seem to still inspire me. That's cool and do are you. Love from Canada
