I Hate My Nose


So I don't like my nose. I had never really thought about it too much until a few years ago when I helped out my photographer friend by doing some modeling for her portfolio.

It was really fun (a little dramatic, but fun). Then one day she called us over to see the finished products and as she was going through the photos there was a shot of me that looked kind of strange..... Turns out she had done some editing on my nose and had photoshopped it to look better..... And ever since then I have developed a certain dislike for my nose.

Until yesterday when my lovely cousin Olivia sent me this message:

  • you know that nose thing you were talking about that your friend edited? haha and you think its ugly
  • welllllllll
  • thats like the exact same 
    as audrey hepburn
  • did you ever notice that?
maybe thats why you love her so much ahah you look the same b-e-a-u-tiful 
Well, I love Audrey A LOT so the fact I could have any resemblance to her at all led to........

Nose Comparison Time:

Are our noses the same? no
Are they similar? YES
Do I still hate my nose? maybe a little
But I like it a lot more than I did yesterday!!! Sweet Progress!

“For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. 
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
People, even more than things, have to be 
restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed; 
never throw out anyone.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, 
you'll find one at the end of each of your arms.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands,
one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, 
the figure that she carries or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, 
because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode 
but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. 
It is the caring that she lovingly gives the passion that she shows. 
The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years.”

-Audrey Hepburn
