Finding your chocolate side...

My daughter's friend always says this before you take her picture "make sure you get my chocolate side",meaning her sweet side. We gave Katelyn a new camera for her 16th birthday and she is always snapping away, you are never really safe. She doesn't necessarily want you to pose for her pictures she is more random or creative. I don't really like having my picture taken especially as of lately..I've gain a lot of weight, have a few extra chins and need my hair dyed desperately. Needless to say it's gonna be a while before that changes so in the mean time I need to find my chocolate side.


Not my chocolate side...



Gimme some chocolate...


Where are my eyes? 


What do you think #2?

Do you know your chocolate side?

I have gained weight living here too! I am hoping that when I am back in the US I can drop it off there! It's hard to travel to fun places and not really enjoy the local food. Our trips always kill me because I go overboard with yummy food.

"find my chocolate side" is such a funny expression. I love it!

You have a lot on your plate right now with a major move. Worry about all of this later when you're comfortably settled here in the US. I think all of your sides are sweet. I will remember this 'chocolate side' when I have my photo taken.

I'm with you on the weight, chins, etc. I'm doing better here in the states but its definitely not dropping off like it would have 20 years ago!

I like #2-that's a good one!

Chocolate is my weakness. It's every side.

Leslie said...

I once heard Oprah say that after a "certain" age, you should slightly lower your face. If you check any of the pictures of me that I put on my blog my face is always angled. That is my dark chocolate look!

I was thinking about weight gain while walking my dogs on Friday. I was thinking why do we worry about how we look so much! I am reaching the point of just accepting myself and not worrying what anyone thinks.

I personally think you are beautiful from any view, chocolate, vanilla or strawberry! Love your scarf!!! xoxoxoxo

I don't think I have a chocolate side currently. I'm trying to steer clear of all cameras, lately.

I like #2, also! Cute!!!

Shelle said...

gosh i was even paid to know the answer to this question...lol...let me see...it's a bit of a trick question...i think it depends on the lighting...so when all else fails...both sides!

at first i thought you were talking about the chocolate you eat...and that was easy...i was born with it ;)

I vote for #2! It's very natural looking.

As someone who's half black, half white, I love the expression "find my chocolate side." Depending on my mood, I may also throw in "find my vanilla side."

I think my chocolate side would be my wrists and my hands. They're my favorite part of my body - they're very slender and feminine. But nobody wants to photograph just my hands or my wrists, unfortunately.

beth said...

LOL...i do have a chocolate side....it's my left side and i have to remind myself "left side is lovely" {the two "L" words together} just to remember because i'm always behind the camera :)

#2

#3 is blurry

I think taking lots of pics and being gracious about pics being taken is really important. Pictures can be important memories later in life.
