♥ i'm not ugly, but my beauty is a total creation.

i don't watch a whole lot of tv nowadays, (nick and i don't have cable!)
but i must admit that for a long time one of my guilty tv pleasures
was watching america's next top model.

a major point that tyra banks always impressed each season was the fact that the
girl who will inevitably take the best pictures will not necessarily be the one
that you could immediately pick out of a lineup as the most striking.

rather, she will most likely be the one with a little flaw or
a unique feature, that makes her unusual and interesting to photograph.

i think that there is something to be said about the type of uncommon beauty
that is not always wrapped up in a perfect package.

another person who seems to feel the same way is funeka ngwevela,
a south african model and stylist who writes the quirky stylista.
according to funeka, "normalcy is a plague and i refuse to be infected,"
a girl after my own heart! here looks are so fun, fearless and fierce,
i am definitely inspired!

"when i walk down t
he street
s of jozi, gra
hamstown, e
verywhere i go actually,
people look at me as if i am unwell or suffer from insanity. well, i do suffer from
insanity and i enjoy every minute of it. i refuse to look like everybody else."
