Your so vain?: selfie obsession

Since I got my iPhone for my birthday I have certainly been taking more photos especially because thanks to apps like Instagram & A Beautiful Mess a not so good photo soon looks a lot better with a filter! 

This also means I'm blogging and reading blogs more. The girls who created A Beautiful Mess (one day I will learn how to link blogs with the blogger app) have a great blog showing their taste in fashion, decor and photography tips. At the moment they are holding a 30 day selfie challenge to try and help you get over the fear of being in front of the lens and to be creative with how you take them. It's iPhone & Instagram law that you have to take at least one selfie. I felt a bit self conscious & vain at first bit now I can't stop! So here are a few I've taken

Laying your phone on a table & leaning over it selfie:
Damp hair, make up free selfie:

Home from work, tired selfie:

Front & back selfie:

And finally the obligatory funny face selfie:


  1. These are great. I'm still trying to figure out how to take a decent iPhone selfie.

  2. These made me smile Jess x
    I'm getting better at taking selfies with the help of my teenagers!

  3. These are all fab Jess and it is so nice to see more photos of you :) I should try the challenge because I HATE having my photo taken as with most females but when I look through the hundreds of photos I have printed every couple of months I am hardly ever in any of them and then I think that my kids will want photos of me too one day even if I don't like them ;)

  4. All great pics Jess :D
