Time for the final post of this anniversary month. And the one I have been most excited to share. In this past year, I have become more and more of the woman I want to be. I know myself, love myself, and most importantly I have become more patient with myself. I owe most of, that discovery to this blog. This blog. InconspicuousGlamour is mine. Completely mine. Watching my words and skill unfold and grow has been wonderful. And to celebrate this year of complete self-love I did a photo shoot with my special angel, Alexis. I will share those photos at the end of the post, but first I want to talk a little bit more about myself. *Insert sly face emoji*
I am not a shy person. Sometimes awkward, yes. But not shy. Shy isn’t for me. I would find it completely difficult to hide. For one, my laugh is the most conspicuous thing about me. I laugh (cackle) like there will never ever be anything funny in this world again. My laugh comes from deep in my soul like my body has something to free. I come from a family of laughers, so when I laugh it’s nostalgic. I can picture my mom, grabbing hold of her stomach because the laugh hurts so good and wiping a tear from under her eye. I love my laugh. I love to laugh.
I believe most people that really know me, would say that I know myself well. The way that I learned to know myself was to spend time with alone. Time reflecting. Time crying. Time singing. Time alone. I had to learn to enjoy being with me. And that’s not to say I don’t enjoy company, but I can have a grand ole time drinking a Shiner Bock and watching the Golden Girls by my lonesome. I have also had to accept the not so good about myself. I am impatient, stubborn, and I have a quick mouth. I acknowledge those traits because I know I need to work on them. But I don’t let that alone weigh me down. Because there is so much of myself I enjoy. I find myself hilarious, generous, and goofy. I can be serious when the time comes because…adulting. I find taking life too seriously or being negative about things that haven’t happened yet to be pointless. I am already anxious about if my contour is blended out well, I don’t need to additionally fixate on something out of my control.
Lastly. My most favorite and least favorite trait of myself is my ego. I think I am a Bad Bitch. Nothing wrong with that. But my ego can get in the way. I am not talking about the time-consuming selfies. I mean more on the lines of not texting a boy first or not apologizing right away when it was probably due. I am prideful. And I know I need to work on it. My ego has also brought wonderful things into my life. I have a sense of self-worth and I know what I need to be happy. I want everyone to have a well-balanced ego. It is because of my ego that I concocted the theme of this shoot with Alexis. Y’all. I did a boudoir shoot. YES.
Y’all. I did a boudoir shoot. YES. YES, I DID. Because I wanted to feel sickening. AND that goal was achieved. I felt sexy and silly. Which is definitely my aesthetic. All in all the photos turned out great. I am excited to share the PG ones here and admire the more R-rated myself. We did two different looks and both of them were completely me and fun and I am rambling on because I am so so so so excited.
These are the sexier, sassier ones. The bodysuit was sexy but goonish…again my aesthetic.
This is essentially what Alexis and I would have been doing this weekend anyway, just a tad more slayful. I love these photos because they are so many little things that are me. I am always cold hence the blanket. Napping and feminism are life. Also not pictured earrings that say “EWW”.
