So, I've been wanting to post this for a while...this whole pin up thing? It's new for me. I've always loved the pin up culture and felt at HOME in the style, make up and life. I love the body acceptance and individuality celebrated within the culture.
This journey started, for ME, because of my acceptance into Pinups for Patriots. #pfp, #pfppa
As I've been telling people about it, and attempting to recruit new members, I usually get a similar response from almost everyone. Everyone says how awesome it is, how fun it must be....but that they could never be a pinup....for various reasons. They don't have the legs...or the body....they can't do hair...or makeup.
I'm here to tell you that, anyone can be a pinup and that its a state of mind, not necessarily a state of body!
I am not perfect by any means! My hair is a long unruly mess. My eyeliner is never perfect and usually smudged. I neeeeed to lose weight....but as this journey has begun...I've realized something...
Before I can expect others to accept me, I have to start accepting and loving myself!!!! Because if I can't love the way I look I obviously won't be able to accept others complimenting me. I need to get used to compliments. I need to get used to taking pictures with others and being in front of a camera again.
The only way I can do that is if it starts within MYSELF. So, without further ado...here I am.
