“Selfie” is the Oxford Dictionary Word of 2013 #Covermoment #PGMom

How many of you have ever taken a picture of yourself?  The Oxford Dictionary named the word “Selfie” the word of 2013.  Thinking back to when I joined social media in 2007, I don’t think I could have imagined that such a word would be used by so many of us.  Check out this infographic from COVERGIRL on Selfies:

As Moms, we are generally the ones behind the camera snapping pictures of our little ones and rarely do we see pictures of ourselves when we are looking through our snapshots.  Selfies are the way to do that.  But did you know that 2/3rds of Canadian women surveyed were unhappy after seeing the selfies they snapped?  Watch COVERGIRL Makeup Pro Amélie Ducharme offer a few quick and simple tips to some young ladies in regards to selfies:


COVERGIRL wants you to have your own #covermoment!  What is a #covermoment you ask?

#covermoment  \ kovərmōmənt \ noun

The moment one feels her most beautiful and empowered self and wants to share it with the world.

A #covermoment celebrates the uniqueness in everyone – it showcases the moments in life when one feels most confident and authentic. 

Since I am one of those Moms who is 99% of the time behind the camera, I snapped this selfie on the way to meet my hubby for a lunch date.  Here is MY #covermoment:
