Speckles of Beauty

Some of the things that we define as our personal flaws are the same things that other people look at and think of as our best features. One of my favorite things in the world is freckles. They are simple little speckles of beauty. I always complain that my hair is too frizzy and curly and that I'm too pale, but why? When it's an individual trait that makes me, me. Look in the mirror and point out something unique and beautiful about yourself. You owe it to yourself.

Me, photographed by my friend Maddie.
So here I am sitting in my bed typing away as Friends is playing on my TV, I'm having a late night snack of chocolate cake and my dog is keeping my toes warm with her tummy. And then my dear friend Maddie suggests that I start a blog. So, I decide to just go for it and have fun. She created this entire lovely canvas that is handed over to me to do whatever I wish with.
To introduce myself I'm Courtney and I have hopes and dreams of going into fashion, my inspiration for which is Edie
Sedgwick, Marilyn Monroe, Twiggy and Audrey Hepburn. All of these lovely ladies inspire me with their strong individuality and confidence.
My definition of a fun day would be sitting in bed sketching Joseph Gordon-Levitt and reading fashion magazines. I am 16 years old and am going to be a junior in high school this coming fall. I keep journals that I write in when I'm happy and lovey
dovey and then later proceed to tearing them to shreds when something goes wrong.
I wouldn't consider myself to be an athlete, but I am a varsity swimmer at my school, so other people do refer to me as one.
I just think of myself as a typical high school girl learning what life means and living it in her own way. Goodnight all.
