|I love the hair and the make up here. I lack the|
face shape to ever emulate this.
After last night's rather depressing and fatigue induced post I feel the need to redress the balance. Not a good night's sleep, not even a rest, but a good day of teaching and some good conversation with students has brought me back to an even keel. A stark contrast, and a pleasant one, to the last three or four years. So, it is my blog and I am going to share images. You have the option to avoid the whole damn thing, in the meantime, have some Ace of Base. (The video for which has stopped working! I shall try again - alas, it is lyrics only).
A long time ago, I posted about inspirational images. I still love that post. So, I'm going to do it again. But more. With knobs on. To reflect the better place I am in, to better explain my positive mental state. To show how under-dressing and the permission I have given myself to do these things has helped since we have moved. Maybe you'll enjoy this too.
|This is sweet. I think my face matches the shape of the one|
with glasses. Not my complexion though.
|Again, face shape. Closer to my complexion.|
|Could I pull this off?|
And now back to interesting and inspiring images to view whilst the music plays. You may or may not wish to watch the video. I don't know.
|Nowt like me. But I would love this!|
|Check out that dress. And the hair. So free.|
|Would that I could wear glasses like that. And the|
flowers in the hair. Seriously. My personal favourite.
My first choice.
|Ah, flowers in their hair. Nowt like me, but|
such an inspiring look.
|Be'eeh! Also, I wish.|
|If I had boobs... I'd wear this. I don't, obviously,|
so I can't. Still looks pretty though.
|A brunette bride. It's not so much the bride|
thing, it's the fantasy dress and the dream.
|Ah, more my age. Probably similar face structure|
and body shape, apart from the breasts.
|One of the prettiest of the bunch. What would I|
give? Not my family. No. My house? Yes. My job?
Yes. My body? Probably. Second choice.
|With the right wig, the right camera filter and a half-blind person...|
|Freedom. I'd take it.|
|Maybe it's the flowers? The chance to hold them without any|
kind of expectation?
|Glasses. That's part of it. Whether or not I'd need them, they are|
a barrier, a defence. A disguise. You've seen Superman?
|Ah, beauty. And liberation. And dreams come|
|Thank you for reading this far.|
