6 Reasons Why I am a Blogger and not a Model

I’m pretty certain there are far more than 6 reasons actually, but I just so happened to come across 6 spectacular “outtakes” or “bloopers” on my computer recently (I should really clear out photos I don’t use!), so thought I would share them in a fun little post. I’ve shared some similar to this before, but since that was, um, 4 years ago (oops!), I thought I’d get back up to date – after all, my computer is filled with these things! So without further ado, 6 reasons why I am a blogger rather than a fully fledged model:

1. I am secretly the girl from The Ring

4. Skipping sideways in the middle of photo shoots is a totally acceptable thing, right?!

collectif outfit outtake6. Sometimes I apparently simply just “power down”

    I think the ‘power down’ one is actually quite arty 😉 I love these kind of posts and one day, one day, maybe I’ll actually have the nerve to post some of my own outtakes. Heaven knows I’ve got enough of them! As I’ve said before, most of them involve the ‘leg attempting to dis-attach itself from body’ pose which is where I’ve got the ‘cute foot out to the side’ thing spectacularly wrong 😀

      Haha the cute foot out to the side ones sound brilliant – you have to share them sometime! Unfortunately this is just a small snippet of my outtakes (really, mostly the ones I could come up with captions for :D)

    LOL! This is the best post ever, we kinda loose our personality when we post the ‘best’ pictures. My outtake is this weird thing I do with my legs. My fiance is like, stop doing that thing with your hip, and I say, that’s what models do. Then I see the pictures and realize that is NOT what models do.

    This really made me laugh! It’s great to know that behind the beautiful pictures,is a human who has awkward moments like the rest of us – sadly most of mine are the awkward ones! 😛 x

      Haha most of mine are too – it takes a lot of work to get usable ones for blog posts 😀 xx

    Chuckling at this. Saw it on UKbloggers and I can relate.

    These photos are great! The power down one is particularly brilliant – like someone else said, it’s quite arty! Love it 🙂
