So inspired by this entry at The House in the Clouds, I couldn't help but take some photos highlighting my personal favorite body parts. We spend so much time knocking ourselves down and beating ourselves up about the way we look; why not celebrate the good stuff? There's nothing conceited, selfish or wrong about that!

Also, quick announcement: I recently joined a huge network of wonderful bloggers at BonBon Rose Girls. I'm floored by the effort this duo puts forth into keeping in contact with their readers. They're constantly working harder to make the site more fun and interactive. I also give them mad props for functioning as a team, because I'm a control freak and have to do this by myself (at least most of the time).

  4. Another great post! You never cease to amaze me. I love the theme to this post because not only is it true, but it is so important. Every girl should celebrate what they have going on every single day. That would be beautiful! You look gorgeous Steph! And I must check out the Bon Bon rose girls. I love a network that promotes an interactive community. x

  5. Love it Stephanie! I agree, I believe that woman need to pamper, love, and celebrate who they are! What a fun and inspiring post; reminding women to love & accept themselves! Loving the whole 80's inspiration too, you look gorgeous. xx veronika

  6. Hey, just found your blog through Brooke (what a sweetie, right?) and love it! This post is great- why shouldn't we celebrate what we love about ourselves? Especially when it's done as well as this! Congrats on joining the Bon Bon Rose Girls, can't wait to see what else you have up your sleeve! xx

  7. Love this post, I totally agree, why not flaunt what you love about yourself!

  8. Amen, you have to love yourself before you can love anyone else. That is so cute that you match the girl on your tee.

  9. You're absolutely right about the whole focusing on what you love rather than what you wish you could change. Def. good to notice the happy things :)
