Who Knows the Nose You'll Get and Other Meaningless Things

I look 14-years-old in this picture from open mic night. Just about the age my nose grew in. I always wonder if my kids will get it when they hit puberty. Actually, I'm giddy with excitement to find out. I'm used to mine now, sort of. The other day an ad popped up with before and after pics of someone who got a nose job. The results are always staggering from the profile, and I start to wonder what it would be like to chisel off an inch. But then from the front view, the results are so minimal. I always feel like they look the same. And then I realize it would be such a waste. I'd rather take a trip to Italy. I just googled "italian woman painting profile" and found my twin as captured by Leonardo de Vinci. Don't need much more validation than that. And even though mine still slightly larger than hers, I'll keep it.

  1. Your nose looks perfectly fine, I don't find it even a little bit big, it suits you! I myself think that my nose looks different from each side, but people keep assuring me it looks the same from both sides and that I shouldnt worry. You see yourself different and more critical than other people. I'm sure Ella wouldnt mind a bit if she turned out looking like her gorgeous Mom!!

    Lots of love

  3. I have a long nose too, and I love it. It makes me me. I think mine grew in about the same time as yours. I had a button nose as a kid too, but in the seventh grade, a kid told me I had a witch nose. Rude. I had no idea. But I just brushed it off and have been fine with mine ever since. And I think your nose is beautiful. You can see a pic of my profile from my blog (nickischmidt.blogspot.com) here:

  4. I love your nose! It's still feminine and proportional to your face, but it's strong enough that you look powerful and legit rather than child or birdlike :)

  5. I actually wish I had a nose like yours. Mine is short and stumpy LOL Guess no matter what you have, you gotta learn to flaunt it right? (:

    & that painting is a total twin.

  6. I have an Italian nose also, I've grown to feel comfortable even though sometimes people can be rude. Button noses are cute too, I think everyone's differences are beautiful. I don't have kids yet, but my hubs(Roger) has more of a short nose. So I always wonder how our kids are going to look also because I had a button nose as a kid. Teeeheee. :) You're beautiful BTW!

  7. I had always hated my nose ever since I was thirteen. It was my Dad's nose and I could see his getting bigger and bigger as he aged and feared the same for mine. But when I was 37 I finally got the courage to have rhinoplasty. And it was the best thing I have ever done!! I feel so much better about myself when I look in the mirror. It was a tough decision to make and it was a tough week after surgery but I would do it all over again.

  10. I like your nose! I have button nose, and think it's too bulbous and makes me look way younger than I am (and not in a good way). I remember growing up, I envied Barbra Steisand and Jewel's noses, which remind me of your nose.

  13. I like your nose! I have grown to like my "roman" nose...i used to have a button too, my mom always says she never saw it coming...But I have a long face so I think a small nose would look weird! Yay for embracing our differences!

  18. I think your nose is gorgeous! This post reminded me of how Jennifer Grey from Dirty Dancing had her nose done, and became practically unrecognisable. http://plasticsurgerybeforeandafter.blogspot.com.au/2009/12/jennifer-grey-nose-job.html

  20. You have a lovely nose! I hate mine, it has a little ridge in it that always makes people think it's been broken! Leads to awkward silences when I say it hasn't been! ;)

  21. Oh please! Don't be dumb. Your profile is elegant and you're lovely. Trade you.

  22. I hate my nose too! I always go through phases of wanting a nose job then chastising myself for my ridiculousness. My husband has the most perfect nose (but big ears) and my little girl has the most divine ickle nose. Hope it lasts! I guess no one is eve 100percent happy...except maybe Miranda Kerr

AMWe have lately introduced into the new area lining up procedure, so that you can facilitate the identical level of gamers, each team can be make the better coordinate, and the old procedure for solving the prospective drawbacks. We know that a lot of WOW Gold gamers for the new procedure without question, so we will offer by a more specific notice to the FAQ. First and foremost, what the new area lining up procedure is that is also the most essential objective. The procedure of inter-team coordinate condition is just like the level, rather than between you and your opposition's place. This implies that when you determining the assessment of the aggressive level, you will come experience to deal with the RS Gold level of the closest team.

  26. When I see photos of myself I think I'd love to get a nose job too. Then I think about what botched nose jobs look like and how much I'd regret it if I ended up with something worse than I have.
