I’ve always hated my nose, been bullied for it and generally had no confidence. Recently though, after becoming an art student I have begun to accept that my body isn’t perfect but it suits me, it’s a little bit weird and quirky but I’m starting to really like that. It definitely helps being surrounded by more mature people that aren’t as shallow as schoolkids

This blog is a godsend. I’ve always felt gross for my big nose, like it made me less of a woman. But everyone in this group are so exotic and attractive, it’s empowering to realise the unique strikingness of a prominent and/or waved nose :)
I’ll never get a nose job out of principal, though some days I do hate it so
big fan of your blog and everything you’re doing here <3 i’ve posted before, but this one’s different.
i was on a train recently and some drunk guys were getting aggressive and scary at a woman who had asked them to be quiet - so i stuck up for her. immediately they turned on me instead, and the first thing they said was “oh my god look at that conk nose!”. they then spent another 20 minutes shouting insults at me about my nose and my appearance, before they finally got off the train. at the time i felt like all the work i’d done towards accepting my nose and my appearance and getting happy in general was for nothing - how could i ever be happy or successful or attractive if my huge nose was the first thing people noticed about me?
after a good night’s sleep though, and a good couple of conversations with my badass friends, i realised i still loved my nose, and was still proud to look different - and i’m really proud of myself for being brave enough to speak up when someone was being harassed. i hope everyone here who feels bad about how their nose looks can one day get to the point where it no longer feels important to them, and they can focus on just being great people instead. THOSE things are the things that really make you beautiful - but having a cool nose also helps ;^)

This blog is sweet. lets rock it the world, nose first!
If I look at a picture all I ever see is my nose; I originally hated this picture beacuse of it, but it’s time to stop focusing on one thing - I realise now that our noses shouldn’t stop us from being happy. Fuck those who try and bring us down, we are amazing

I believe the saying that ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder’ because every day I behold my reflection and I choose to see beauty there. I don’t buy into the idea that beauty comes in a symmetrical package, complete with large eyes, dainty nose, and full lips. I think beauty is present on everyone’s face, as long as he or she chooses to see it.

I feel for all you with the big noses.. society has limited capacity in their views of what “beautiful” is. Though I love big noses on others, I’ve always been SO soooo self conscious of my own.
Cheers to us getting over it!
