Alexie RicRac for Mumpty Styles' Selfie September

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!!”

Mumpty says …
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!
