OK, I'll try.



1. My hair- Its very resilent even after a gazillion dye jobs

2. My boobs...now that I have gained weight, they're back!

3. My legs - they are thin and shapely

4. My brain - Ahh, yes....



Ok, I got four!

1) my eyes: they're dark dark brown. A boy I liked once told me that girls with brown eyes and natually blonde hair were the most beautiful girls in the world because it's uncommon. He's probably forgotten that by now, but I don't think I ever will.

2) my eyelashes. they're long and curled just enough. I love the comments I get when I put mascara on.

3) this is a really lame one, but the skin on my breasts is the biggest expanse of unscarred skin on my body other than my face. (including my back. that's scarred too.) It's lame because I only like it because I hate the scarred skin on the rest of my body. it's like saying "I love it because it's not TOO ugly." I'll think of a better one later.



that's honestly all I can think of right now. I'm having a bit of a low self-esteem day today, so maybe I'll like more of me tomorrow. It did get me thinking more positively though. thinking about the bits I know I like instead of the bits I hate.

ooh! thought of a better one for #3



3) my hips. My modern dance teacher calls me "miss flexi-hips" and says she would kill for my turnout (for those who don't dance, it means I can turn my feet, from the hips, past 180 degrees, which is a good thing for a dancer.)

1) My eyes - green, big and can express almost every emotion.



2) My butt! Bootyskaking, baby! Nah, seriously. When it's fit I really like it, because it's round and high, but still firm and fit. I can't believe I said that!



3) My feet - they are so small and dainty. They look great in strappy sandals.



4) My nose - yeah, I know. It's just that it's not a "normal" nose, but still it seems to fit in my face perfectly.



5) My legs - they're not very long and they're not very thin, but they work and I love using them. Besides, they're smooth. No bumps, cellulite, stretchmarks or anything, I like that too.

I can do this...



1) my eyes- they are bluish-green with a hazel circle around my pupil and a deep greenisn navy ring around my iris



2) my calves- they are really muscular and have a nice shape and made my ankles look thin... I love 'em!



3) my arms- particularly my delts and triceips, again nice and muscular and strong.



4) my ears- they are tiny and cute



5) my fingernails- they are strong and don't break easily and they grow into the perfect shape.

O.K. I will try.....

1) My eyes- Blue, green, gray almost clear sometimes. They change color slightly.

2) My breasts-They are larger than my frame should have them.

3) My belly-It is cute, I love bellies anyway.

4) My legs-They are very long.

5) My ornamentation-O.K. so the piercings and tats are not naturally on me but, I love how they accentuate the parts they are on.

I'm doing another 5



My Butt-Its bubbly and cute!!

My Calves-They're naturally petite.

My Boobs-Or "Noobs" as I call them, because they are small, meaning 'No Boobs'

My Tongue-That baby almost got me into the GB of World Records.

My Collarbone-It pertrudes out, naturally, and it matches very well with my long neck.

Ok, here goes nothing:



>my wrists. They look like the wrists out of Grey's anatomy, or something. VERY fine boned, little pointy, very delicate. I look wearing beautiful bracelets because I just feel so feminine then. I guess a lot of it is bone frame, and in the end, of course, you can't control that, but I like my wrists all the same.



>my neck/ shoulder area. It's very pale, because I don't spend a lot of time in the sun, and it has no freckles or marks. I used to be a bit of a cutter, and that area was spared, and it's like an expanse of pure clean skin. It has soft downy hairs, white and light and soft, and it looks, I dunno, I just like that area. I like to wear off the shoulder ballet inspired tops. Nothing too revealing, but still very pretty.



>my eyes. They are lotus or almond shaped. They slant upwards. I always wanted them to be a darker blue, but they are a nice colour all the same.



>my arms. Thin but now they are more toned because I've been swimming. They look like they couldn't exert much power, but trust me - from days in karate - they can pack a whallop!



>I guess I should mention that I'm happy with my bust, I guess - LOL. It's small, and again, I'm glad. I wouldn't want them to be big. I'm not someone who has a 'mothering' body...I'm very small, very fine boned, and my body doesn't seem to hold onto fat (doc's said it's about 12 or 13%, and more like 10% when I do Karate). But all the same, given that I don't ever want kids, I like the look. Twiggy-ish.

I guess I love almost my whole body...after years of criticizing it!



Legs - My legs are muscular and slim, with a nice butt atop!



Stomach - One of my favorites, it is also muscular and slim. Good color, too. Kind of naturally tan.



Arms - Slim and muscular...again! Is this boring yet?



Breasts - Well, they aren't the best, but they are a good size and proportionate to the rest of my body.



Eyes - Dark brown and shiny when I'm happy/excited. Few men have seen my glimmer.



Oh, and my hands, wrists, and fingers, because without them, I wouldn't be able to type 300 wpm on my steno machine for these fast talkers!

I LOVE MY RIGHT SHOULDER. It now sports a new, and nearly finished tattoo. My shoulder was nice anyway, but now I reaaaally love it.

It is a good thread. I'm just wondering if anyone has gotten professional photos done of themselves, boudoir or otherwise.

Ooh. Fun.



1. My hair - I suppose this is the most complimented feature of mine, mainly because there is so much of it.. and it's actually rather pretty and healthy (though I'm due for a trim).

2. My eyebrows - I've always liked the shape of them

3. umm.. my bellybutton?

4. My teeth! They're straight and strong and I've never needed braces. I probably won't need to get my wisdom teeth removed either, yay!

5. My hips - they're nice and wide.



Extra: All of my "girl" parts.

Oooh, I wanna play. I need to be positive for once



1) my hair! I get compliments on how healthy it looks all the time. And when I let it dry naturally, it's nice and wavy!



2) My body shape. I have an hourglass.



3) my eyebrows. My mom loves them, and I've gotten random compliments about them.



4) My lips! They're pouty and they're a pretty pink color.



5) umm.. my eyes! They're brown, and I like the shape.



I tried to find the best suited emoticons for each one..

1 - hair - naturally golden blonde, thick, wavy, lighter in summer

2 - hourglass figure (and that includes the boobage. Thanks for the reminder, Fafa.)

3 - fingernails - strong, healthy, and grow like weeds (I'm constantly trimming them so they don't interfere with my typing.)

4 - skin (porcelain - I'm fighting myself to not follow that with something negative.)

5 - arms (I'm liking them more and more every day as the muscles become more defined. I'm stronger than I look, but that's changing.)

I'm just going to do one at a time.



I love my hands. They're chubby little things, but they are very strong and capable. They have always been how I have earned a living--cutting hair, running a cash register, typing, etc. Also, they are quite talented and graceful. Yay hands!

okay, I'm getting there... believe it or not I've been thinking about this a lot...



4) my freckles. There are less of them now than when I was younger, but people still squeal abot how cute they are

5)my ears. they're abnormally tiny, and every once in a while someone will notice and the whole room has to touch them and say they're cute.

My friend took some rather racy in an artsy way of my for her photography class. They where in black and white. And if I do say so myself I look HOT! I really want to get a copy from her.

Cissy - beautiful! Oh to be a teenager again..



And I forgot to add two things.. I have dimples which people seem to love, and I'm also very tall which used to be annoying but I actually think is quite cool now.

Just thought of something else to add. I like my overall figure, it's slim and athletic looking. I'm not very curvy (especially not my hips) but it's nice to eat all I want and not gain anything. and my chest may be a bit small, but it's in perfect proportion to the rest of my body. It's also always been easy for me to do sporty things (except running) oh yeah and thanks to all my recent strength training, every part of my body is becoming more muscular, nice and tight. even my thighs! Hooray!
