First AttemptsTuesday, October 23, 2012
I am not someone who likes attention. I blog and YouTube out of pure passion for makeup and fashion - in fact the first time I ever did an FOTD, I had to work myself up to it for weeks. The idea of taking a picture of myself was so daunting!
Now, of course, I do it on a daily basis. I still get really embarrassed when someone sees me taking a picture of myself, but I have learned to get used to it.
What I haven't gotten used to, though, is someone else taking a picture of me. In public.
J and I headed out last weekend and I brought my brand new camera with me, wanting to get a few shots of my accessories and outfit for the blog. You cannot imagine how mortified I was! I pushed on though, and here are some shots from the weekend.
On Sunday, we went to Red Silk for the very first time and I cannot believe we had never tried it before! The restaurant itself was wonderfully cosy, and the food was delicious! Not to mention, they carried all kinds of Asian drinks, so I got to order my favourite :)
Then came time to snap some pictures of me. It wasn't a pretty sight, because all I could do was squirm and turn away from the camera if I saw anyone nearby. I wasn't particularly dressed up that day, which really helped (though not enough, obviously!).
I'll get it right after a couple more tries, I'm hoping.
On Saturday, J was feeling peckish, so right after lunch, we had Cacao Green. I'm glad we had something more healthy for a change.
