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.
Ha.

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 =)
