3) When replying to a post, remember this is NOT the critique section.
4) Comments like " I love your eyes/ my god you are hot" are not helpful! Include them but please comment on the item/s being shown off too!
5) This Show Off section is only for showing off non hair related products, not making sales. Please make no references to eBay, A and P, or any kind of sales.

Show Off: You!

Post by Nixxiie » Wed Apr 14, 2010 7:40 pm

If you don't like this thread idea you can delete if you like but I thought it would be nice

This is Just a thread for you to post that picture you think you looked great in that day. Cause we all get those days where we feel a bit gorgeous

It's not a "what a wore today thread"

I thought this thread would be a nice place to show off that photo =) See? Photo just one :) cause then you know it's the best of the bunch.

No nastiness though, because the picture the person has posted means they feel they looked good in it so to see a bitchy comment will kill that boost they had, but we're not actually that bitchy ^.^

I'll start :)

Today I went to a wedding, I was up at 6 curling my hair (takes a while cause it's quite long) I did mummy's make up and I rushed my own. But here is the result!

Alcohol aside, I really like this picture of myself (especially my hair). It's from a couple weeks ago.

This is a recent one. I like this photo purely because it's the only one I have since the swelling on my medusa piercing went down, also I love my hair.

Image

I like this one because A) Somehow my foundation was holding after several bands at Deathfest 09 and B) I'm with one of my most favourite people in the world.

Some of you may have seen this pic. It's the only one I'll let Dan have a copy of in a nice frame so I must like it. My mum took it when my brother was trying to get me work as a Joss Stone lookalike. It's about 4 or 5 years old...it was obviously before I had all my hair hacked off :D

Haha, you do look a lot like her! Is that your natural hair colour? Its lovely. Mine was similar to that until it started going darker as I got older :( until I hit the bleach, obviously :lol:

I love the idea for this thread, and so far some beautiful pics!

I recently got back into modelling (as a hobby) after a long-term mental illness, and I'm slowly building my confidence back up. Was particularly thrilled with this following picture - in 99% of images of myself I'll moan about my nose, this one I didn't, so I'm terribly proud! :lol:

I think my favourite one of me is from quite some time ago, one of the last times i had dreads in for a while, and i was a bit, erm, "lighter"! Currently trying to get to the point where i feel comfy wearing tight tops again like that night!

ok so most of my pictures are a few years old or so. I have not taken any photos of myself since gaining weight so yeah sorry about old photos.

(I really miss my eyebrows in this picture! I went a little nuts one day and over plucked them now they are a little short.
Also this is pretty much the only makeup I wear on a daily basis even though I have a boxfull of makeup. lol )
