Guess what?  Yours truly has a beauty confession to make – I LOVE TO TAKE SELFIES IN THE CAR!  There, I said it!


What is a Selfie?

Urbandictionary.com defines “selfie” as a picture taken of yourself that is planned to be uploaded to Facebook, Myspace or any other sort of social networking website. You can usually see the person’s arm holding out the camera in which case you can clearly tell that this person does not have any friends to take pictures of them so they resort to Myspace to find internet friends and post pictures of themselves, taken by themselves.

It’s totally understandable to take selfies in the car because as a passenger, there is no law which states that “a passenger MUST keep the driver company”, is there?  *smug grin*

(Of course, if I was the driver, then the law applies and the passenger MUST keep me awake!!! 😛 )

Sometimes it gets boring when you’re in a long car ride and there’s no good music on the radio.  Plus it’s especially important to take selfies if your other half doesn’t remember to compliment you and you’re looking damn fine!  Yes, I am vain and I am shameless – so what?!  Sue me!

Anyway, if you think my obsession with taking selfies is confined to my (not-so-trusty-anymore) iPhone 4 (iPhone 5!  iPhone 5!  iPhone 5!  Today!  Today!  Today!), think again!  I have to take it one step further and use my nice Canon camera to take selfies!  Because my skin looks flawless and less grainy 🙂

If you live in Melbourne and see a passenger with a DSLR car snapping away at herself, then it is most likely MOI!  Please do not disturb!  I take selfies very seriously and I love to work my angles along to the beat of the music on the radio!  Heck, I even do it when there are other passengers in the car!  *beams with pride*

    Lol, good idea to take selfies with a real camera 😀 I love taking selfies when I’m at work (coz I’m friggin’ bored out of my mind). Of course it’s a bit embarrassing if some one caught you in the MySpace-pose, but that’s what makes it “so wrong, but still so right” looking haha..

    I swear, since yesterday every where I go, I keep hearing about this iPhone5.. so, is it out yet? Lol
