HNT: Lilies 2

My hair is naturally wavy and dries into a mess if I don't use a blowdryer on it. Even then, it's still wavy and wild. I used to take the time to straighten my hair into long, even lines. Only for my hair to hit the Texas humidity and then go to a mess again. I rarely waste the time straightening my hair any longer. It's a waste of time because it never stays. Even after I take the time to style my hair, it looks like I rolled out of bed and didn't bother fixing it up.

I have had people ask, when will I post a picture of me smiling? The truth is, I don't smile very often but I do smile a lot. I just don't do it for no reason. I feel fake putting on a smile for the camera. When you click, you'll see a sort of smile from me. These lilies, they make me smile. It's hard to catch on camera, my smile that is. It always looks goofy to me so I don't often smile for a picture. If I notice someone staring at me, I always flash a small grin so they know I'm not Satan's spawn preparing to eat their soul or anything foolish like that. I hate to look unapproachable because really, I'm sort of a nice person. ;) People just don't tend to see that because of the way I look and the way I act. I could change that I'm sure but I really don't want to because I'm okay being me.... some days.

The pictures this week aren't that great. I almost skipped playing this week. I decided about an hour ago to play, for what reason I'm not sure. I just snapped some using my camera phone and decided to put them up. So, they aren't the best but here we go.


Happy
Thursday!

Great pics and words. Have a nice night.

Ms. Inconspicuous said...

Funny, I envy your textured hair for my stick-straight, limp-in-all-conditions hair. Grass is greener, no? :)

I'm glad you decided to play--you look lovely with the lilies.

Happy HNT!

ms. i:
I often wondered if I had stick-straight hair if I would be curling, crimping and things like that to give it texture. Hehe. =)
Thank you!

Ms. Lily said...

I empathize it takes me an hour to straighten my hair, and it curls right back up in no time. :(
Every picture you take looks great, I don't think you can take a bad one.
HHNT!!

Lovely shots...the lily suit you well.

HHNT!

Ro said...

I love that click-through - it's so intense!

I hate smiling for the camera myself. "Goofy" would be the word I'd suggest for me too. One thing that does make me smile properly, though, is trying to smile at myself in the mirror - it looks so silly, I can't help smiling properly :)

Happy HNT!

Luka said...

It's your expressive eyes that make your HNT pics so gorgeous each week.

I got a surprise at the first photoshoot my band did. The photographer said we were too bloody miserable to bother. We thought we were smiling, but when the pictures came out we looked really grim. Had to do some work on it for the next one.

You should try just smiling sometimes just for the sake of it. Not to be fake, but just because you don't feel bad. The results can be surprising.

not2shy said...

Oops, clicked publish by accident. Meant to add that I love the click through. You have beautiful eyes.

Richard, Shhh... said...

Amorous, ur cell phone pics are GREAT! Very beautiful except you let the lilies upstage some gorgeous flowers that interest me more, I suppose! Wonder Y? ;-)

Happy HNT! (PS: Small world - I'm from Sacramento & Laredo, myself!)

Stiletto Reflections said...

Pretty! When I don't feel like 'doing' my hair, I spray in a leave-in conditioner, then put some gel that is specifically for curls. Then hairspray. I let it dry on its own that way and I end up with a beachy look, not a right out of bed one, lol.
