NO H8 Purple-Themed FOTD

Hey everyone! I was so inspired by the No H8 campaign yesterday that I decided to go all out and do a purple-themed FOTD for work. If you'd like to see the purple nails that I sported yesterday and read my accompanying personal story, you may do so here.

It's been a while since I've done a FOTD.. I was never really happy with the way I photographed them, but I'm thrilled to be back with this one! It's given me a confidence boost to do more, so expect to have lots of fun holiday looks coming your way soon!

Overall, I think it turned out great! The purple lip is more than I would normally do with such a colorful eye, but I figured if I was going to do it.. I should go all out. It paid off. Customers at work commented that I was "very purple" and it sparked a conversation about the anti-bullying campaign, and several people said it was cool that I was showing support in such a creative way.

To finish up, I'll add one more full-face picture of me with my glasses! I used to hate wearing them because I was teased for them, but now I love the pair I currently wear! I'm proud of my "four eyes" damn it!
