Em+Me+Pink Bike=AWESOME {TOMS winners}

I do not take complaints easily.
I get all shifty, blush, avoid eye contact, and oddly enough put on a british accent {I know weird}.

So when Em and I went on a girl date and had a little photog sess a few months ago,
I was WAY self conscious.
But I made a deal with myself lock all that self conscious mumbo jumbo in the car
and allow myself to be ok with myself.

Do this.
Grab a friend.

Get dolled up.
Go somewhere pretty.

And if you happen to have a pink bike, BRING IT.

And strip yourself of all those stupid insecurities and be in the moment and snap away.
Do it.

Just me, my girlfriend and her camera {oh and my cute pink bike.}

I love this picture.
It makes me laugh because silly us it was the ONLY pic we took together.

Big thanks and shout outs to my home girls Casey and Leonora for
talking me up on their blogs today, makes this little chick-a-doo smile BIG TIME.
{insert shifting, blushing, and that odd british accent}
And thank you all for entering the One Day Without Shoes TOMS giveaway.

Amy, I love this post!! What a great mental exercise. I feel like so many women struggle with this very same issue. And why?! We are all just so hard on ourselves. Anyway, this was a fabulous idea, and I really enjoyed the photos. I think the last one is my favorite; it's a really cool photo =)
