Not That We're Vain Or Anything...

What's your favorite thing about yourself? I think women in general (myself included!) do not appreciate their bodies enough just the way they are. We can be very unforgiving to ourselves...so let's celebrate the goods today! Tell me something you just LOVE about yourself - and I am talking physical appearances here (no "I have a great personality/laugh, etc.").


My favorite thing about myself is that I have an hourglass figure. I love that I actually look like a woman and not a stick figure. Boobs, butt, waist...they're all there! (and fortunately everything is pretty proportional too.)

whose next?...

    I'm pretty happy with myself overall physically.  I especially like my blue eyes - they're my favorite feature!

    My personal favourite is my hair, it's the one thing I honestly always believe is beautiful. It's so easy to take care of, and looks great. It's naturally wavy-curly and I think it has the prettiest colour: auburn with some blonder streaks in it. Completely natural.

    Maybe this is weird, but I like my hands too. My family says they're princess hands.

    My rack.

    Green eyes.

    Weird one---I like my ears.  They fit my head perfectly, and I have unattached earlobes. Perfect for earrings.  I have a crapload of piercings in my ears and earrings to match each outfit.

    Like Cate and Gem, I love my eyes.  They're light blue.  I get compliments on them from strangers.

    Allow me to brag for a second (since that's what this post is about):  In college, I took a fiction writing class and, on the first day, the teacher had us write a paragraph about ourselves without including our names so he could try to guess who wrote what.  I said something like "I've been told that my eyes are my best feature" and as soon as he read that sentence, he stopped and guessed correctly that I had written it.   It made my day.

    I like my chest - not my boobs, but the part above that with my collarbone and all. I'm actually kind of a fan of my collarbone; I think it looks kind of delicate. Weird, I know. Otherwise, I also like my legs, ears, and hands. I'm generally not too terribly unhappy with my body, although my stomach could definitely use some toning.

    I love my legs and my eyes. I think my legs look awesome when they're toned and I wear a pair of heels. My eyes are blue and I get complimented on them quite often.

    I like my face.  I think my features are very pretty and delicate.  My eyes are my favorite facial feature.  They're hazelish green and my iris is surrounded by an olive green ring. 

    I also like my hair and my butt.  My butt is quite nice.

    My eyes.  I get lots of compliments on them and they change colors depending on what I'm wearing.  They're blue, but when I wear blue, they stand out even more.  If I wear black or grey, they look more blue/grey.  My eyelashes also get tons of compliments.

    I also like my boobies and my feet.  BF is really the only one who compliments me on my rack, but that's understandable.  Kiss

    My legs are probably my favorite feature. They're very long, and I love how toned they look when I've been good about doing squats.

    The random feature I like are my eyebrows. I've recently discovered they're a shade that will look natural with almost any hair color, meaning my dyed hair won't look artificial. Blonde, brunette, red, I can do it all!

    I also like my feet.  LOL.  I think they are cute, my toes are proportionate, etc.  And I love my tattoo on my foot too, I think it's a great accessory.

    Same with my back.  I don't know why I like it, but I do.  I guess that's a big part of why I decided on a backless dress.  :)

    My eyes are totally the best blue eyes ever (besides the other ten best blue eyes ever on this post - are we all blue eyed or something?!)  When I first got contacts, in high school, this annoying preppy girl came up to me and said: "are your eyes really blue or are those blue contacts?"  I gave her an evil stare and was like "I'm pretty sure they were blue yesterday too...and the day before, but thanks" 

    I also love my tummy - obviously, it's better when it has a little less flub, but it's a really cute tummy!  And flub is okay because it's cold and flub keeps me warm.  But I'd be okay if the number on the scale was lower.  I'm convinced the scale's broken, but BF claims that's not the case.
    I guess, to tell you the truth, I've never had much of a desire to grow facial hair. I think I've managed to play quarterback just fine without a mustache. - Peyton

    I wish I got my mom's blue eyes as I love blue eyes with dark hair. I got my dad's brown eyes though.

    My favorite thing about myself are lips. I have full lips and I love them.

    I'm gonna say my chest. I always seem to be surrounded by very well endowed women, and for some reason making fun of someone's chest is totally okay even though you would never make fun of someone for being overweight. As a result, I've had a *huge* complex about it since high school.
    BF is trying really hard to get me to appreciate myself and I was making progress. Then last week my friend was going through old bathing suits and said "Can you believe my boobs ever fit in these? But here, do you want them?" According to BF she just washed 6 months of work down the drain.

    So, I'm gonna go with some positive reinforcement here and say i like my boobs. If I keep saying it maybe I'll believe it ;)

    On a more cheerful note, I have killer legs. I got them from my grandmom :)

    My favorite thing about myself is probably my waist. I'm naturally extremely tiny, and I love how my waist and hips are. I love my hip bones. That sounds weird. But I like them.  I also really like my collar bones. I think they're hot.  And my hair color. It's perfectly blonde with different tones of brown mixed in. It sort of looks like I have high lights or something. I love that too.

    I have little boobs, too, and I prefer them that way.  We can run and ride bumpy roller coasters and wear sundresses.  Learn to love it!

    I think my favorite feature is my nose and its freckles. Also I really like my long neck. Not giraffe style, but princess style.

    My boobs are big and I hate them, but my BF is trying to make me appreciate them. I guess I just wish I had a butt to go with it. My butt is completely flat.

    I have a pretty big complex about my body. Probably comes from all those years of ballet and not really having the right body shape to conform to the standards in the field these days. BF thinks I'm totally hot, though. He says every part of my body is shaped perfectly. Especially likes my butt. I think he's nuts.

    I do like my blue eyes, though.

    Marley,

    You should try Irish Dancing. My dance teacher used to take us out for pizza and ice cream and would get moody if he thought you weren't eating enough :)

    And your boyfriend's right. FYI.

    I really like my hazel eyes, my freckles and my curly hair that is brown with natural red highlights. Aside from that I'm pretty proportionate, so that works well for me.

    The thing I dislike the most are my linebacker shoulders and rib cage, mainly cause clothes are hard to find. Mind you, my chest would look massive without them. So, it all balances out.
