The Art of the Selfie…from my ‘not’ perspective…

So, a little silliness to brighten your day –  (it is February after all).

I’m not too sure what the rules are on re-publishing another’s post, but after my exhaustive research, I found that the ethical thing to do is ensure I give a shout out!   So, please visit Esther Anderson and I promise you will not be disappointed.  Her popularity is expanding with one YouTube video having over 14 Million views!  You can catch it here.

Some things in life we just relate to.  This video is called “Why Co-Sleeping is no No-Sleeping.”   Then I stumbled upon her take on the world of Selfies.  So great.  We all take them, and spend a crazy amount of time (guilty as charged) getting just the right shot.  At one social gathering, I was being taught by a 21 year old how to take the perfect pouty “duck lip” selfie!  Yes, we can all be a little goofy at times, why not, and please, DO NOT at any point, ask me my age. I will only lie!

So here you go, a little pick me up for you!  Enjoy the giggles…


Apparently there are some unwritten selfie rules out there that no one actually talks about but everyone uses. A lot. So let’s lay them out for you. Here are a few of the most popular ones I’ve come across since selfie’s became what America is founded on:

Never let your selfie be about anybody but you. If it has to be, then just make sure they’re ugly.

Always take the picture from above to make yourself look smaller and your duck lips bigger.

If you stand in front of the sun, you look like an angel.

Always smile in your selfies no matter what’s actually happening. Also, wear a seatbelt.

The saturation button is proportionate to your hotness.
Random inspirational quotes disguise selfies and make them seem like they’re not actually selfies…especially the bathroom ones.
If you washout your face enough then no one has to see what your face really looks like.
If at all possible, find a baby to use in your selfie because everyone likes babies and you’ll get lots of likes.
If at all possible, find a baby to use in your selfie because everyone likes babies and you’ll get lots of likes.


Again, this chick is so great!

Until next time, (peek-a-boo selfie)
