Next up for Selfie September is Alexie RicRac, who sent me this beautiful photo below.
Alexie says …
“Without further ado, my selfie and why it’s my favourite.
Taken back in May, I was experimenting with my makeup: it was the first time I had attempted using an eye shadow as an eye liner (or any kind of eye liner for that matter.) I had on black lingerie and I looked in the mirror and was completely taken aback at how amazing I looked.
I have never looked in the mirror in my underwear and felt the way I felt that night. I took photographs of myself in my underwear, and then fully clothed. This portrait selfie though, I see so much progress: happiness, pride, and acceptance.
People tell me that I’m beautiful and in this picture, make up or not, I can really see it. I’ve still got a long way to go, and it’s taken me a mighty long time to get here, but I’m happy with where I am.
PS – I SUCK at selfies! I can’t wait to see everyone’s selfies!!”

This is one of the things I love about having a blog – I come into contact with amazing people that I’ve never met in person, but who I think are fabulous anyway. Alexie’s story made me so proud … good on her – it’s so lovely to hear somebody talking so positively about herself. PS: And don’t her wings look FABULOUS!
Positive thoughts and lovin’ that body ..
