I don't take selfies. Well, sometimes I try to take one or two when my friends want to see how my hair looks especially now that my hardresser is on maternity leave and I haven't bothered to look for a replacement for her. Luckily she cut and shortened my hair at least 20cm in January. Anyway, this is not about my hair but the power of selfies, and how people prefer to like pics presenting yourself especially in social media.
A friend of mine called me the other day saying that she had put a picture (which I had shot with a timer)on her Facebook page and tagged me on it. the funny thing was that in a short time it had a loads of likes, mostly my FB friends. I post something on FB almost on daily basis, but nobody seems to like them. But suddenly when there's my face out there everyone likes it. So weird! Have to admit though that I like when people show their outfits or change their profile pics on social media. There must be something in those pictures that attracts us more than just seeing someone's living room, garden flowers or tee cup. Maybe. I do still like more non-human pics. It's just sometimes nice to see a face of a friend. And I don't intend to change my habbits - these are here the only selfies of me!
Oh, I know I should have organized the kitchen and been more aware what I was wearing!
I don't see my own face that often - even though there are big mirrors around my home - so I don't really pay that much attention how I look. Now I can see that I shouldn't go out looking that natural. I'm not lazy with make-up. It's just that when you are far over 50, you feel that no matter how much you add it, it doesn't help you any more nor make you look better. I stopped wearing make-up a year ago. I used to have lash extensions which I loved but got allergic to those fixing clues. Adding mascara to my short lashes didn't have the same effect so I gave up.
ps. after getting so many positive comments I realized that maybe I posted these selfies just to receive some compliments...
