Anonymous asked: Hi my name is Sara Malone and I live in the United States of the America. I am doing a special project for school on beauty in different countries around the world. I was just wondering what you thought was beauty? How do you presieve beauty? What does your country presieve beauty as? If you have time I would love to hear your answer. Thanks! :D
Hey Sara, nice to meet you. Well beauty is a really broad topic lol. I don’t have a definite definition of beauty but the older I get, the more i recognize different kinds of beauty. When they say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, it’s definitely true because beauty can be found in so many different Way. While I was growing up i did favor smaller facial features because that was the standard of beauty that people within my culture set. for example, small/fine nose, full lips, bright eyes, and long hair And a lot of people within in my culture favored lighter skin individuals but it wasn’t that important as long as your face fit the standard. Having really white teeth and dark gums is also considered beautiful.. I still do believe that those characteristics are beautiful but now that I am older i am aware that that’s not the only kind of beauty. The reason why I mentioned my culture and not my country Is because each culture might have different preferences and different ideas and I would be generalizing too much if I spoke for all the ethnic groups in my country.
I got bored with my background..so I changed it and the colors. I didn’t find a theme I loved more Than the one I have now sooo I hope you guys like it.
What would you guys like to see more..?
I like your blog, but…
I find your blog hard for me to read. I’m a 70+ year old, California-born, former Peace Corps/Nigeria from the 60s. I knew and worked with Fulani people, and Hausa, and Burim, and Kanuri, and Yoruba, and…. I like seeing these faces again, but I regret that they are neither easily identified by name, ethnicity, nationality or anything else. The are just faces. If your background were less cluttered and not black with green or blue text it would be easier on these old eyes of mine. I like your blog enough to follow it. I wish you the best. Yaakov the Baturi.
