A picture taken of yourself that is planned to be uploaded to Facebook, Myspace or any other sort of social networking website. You can usually see the person's arm holding out the camera in which case you can clearly tell that this person does not have any friends to take pictures of them so they resort to Myspace to find internet friends and post pictures of themselves, taken by themselves. A selfie is usually accompanied by a kissy face or the individual looking in a direction that is not towards the camera.Now I can guarantee you that my slightly embarrassing selfie photo collage did not make it to Facebook nor was it posted to MySpace (I didn't know anyone still used the MySpace platform?) Really it would have never even became acquainted with the web if it were not for me blogging about it. Why did I take a selfie? Because I wanted to capture the one day I decide to apply makeup so it wouldn't be another day feeling less than fabulous. I could go on and on about how ladies, and gentlemen in some cases, need to put away the kissy face and the 'emo' persona but too many people have covered that topic on how less than fabulous one may look when making such faces. So instead let's give a duck faced selfie taker and an 'I obviously am very in touch with my emotions' emo selfie taker a round of applause.

First, let's talk about a #Selfie
We've all seen it, we've all heard it. Selfie. The latest hashtag phenomenon. So much so, that there's also been a song made.
Mind you, there's been countless debates and opinions shared that have gone on and on and...on about how horrendous, and quite frankly repulsive, this is. I'm not going to do that. Originally I wanted to write a post about how being a stay at home wife I don't get out much and how on a regular basis you can find me with no makeup and a t-shirt with my hair undoubtedly on top of my head in a messy bun, however the post, I decided, should be about something completely different. Why?
