#BeFake ~ Silly Sundays

So… Disclaimer. My profile picture isn’t real.

Okay, well… actually it IS real just not the real ME. It will be something very like the real me in fairly short order and is a direct result of my overflowing enthusiasm for my new / old ‘look’ to evolve or perhaps ‘resurrect’ is more accurate. Certainly, it hits the high points of colour, style, fashion aesthetic and all that good stuff. My own hair is transitioning from deep purple to its pale wisteria roots (no pun – okay – yes pun) and I can’t wait!

To justify reneging on my (self-imposed, I bet you didn’t know anyway) steadfast insistence about posting real photographs of my authentic mug, I am creating a #BeFake campaign because #beincognitotemporarily campaign took too long to type! Feel free to join in 🙂

I have no idea why I felt that an explanation was in order but with the amount of ‘judgey judgey’, snarkfest, in-your-face, opinionated foofaraw that happens on Social Media, I deemed it best to preempt it by proudly stepping up and proclaiming: My Gravatar is not real!

It is however, close enough for Rock ‘N Roll.

Well… with a stylist… maybe a professional makeup artist… do you know how frakkin’ hard it is to get these eyeliner wings right??!

#BeReal – KARIN BOLE TUPPER

This was really fun and a positive message. I was featured in a guest post at HastyWords blog on WordPress as part of her push to further the #BeReal campaign.
If you click through, you can read my off-the-cuff and of course, nose-thumbing poem about keeping it real, “My Rebel Prayer”.

My #BeReal guest today is Karin Bole Tupper.

I am very excited to share Karin’s poetry with you today.  May we take a few risks and enjoy the life we have.

Thank you Karin for this amazing poem.

NOTE:

Poem:
My Rebel Prayer

Think I’d rather risk a wrinkle
Than turn away from the sun

Indian, Thai and fajitas are why
Someone invented tums

I’ve yet to see a gal get a medal
For avoiding MAC and Revlon

Au naturel hair or organic
Doesn’t make you a better person

Just say “No” to crocs and ‘stocks
Why give up Converse and heels

And a minivan equals relaxed fit
Remember how a ’79 Berlinetta feels?

I adore you Mozart…

It’s back again! #BeReal

If only that applied to humans and not just memes…

I’m 100% that chick in the photos. No makeup, just the face I was born with.

I’m proud to be one of the few women who doesn’t hide behind a fake name or a faery gravatar. I am Karin Bole Tupper and this is my face. Thank you to my amazing daughter for encouraging me when my upbringing, environment or circumstances, make me feel unattractive or unworthy.

Apparently, I’m doing something right and kisses to one of the two most amazing people on this earth!
