Thought it might be nice to have one of these for the new year?

It's good to feel good about yourself wink

so, at the risk of this thread not taking off & being a bit sad complimenting myself alone, I like my legs and my height. When I was a teenager I thought I was bigger than I was, so bought stuff that was 2-3 sizes too big and wondered why it never fell right! Now I've found my size and am happy with it.

I like my eyes, they're dark brown and I have super long eyelashes. Usually like my legs when I'm 20lbs lighter!

My hair and my height!

My hair, still deep brown and virtually no greys at 48, plus all I have to do is run my fingers through it in the morning. My hands and nails too.

I have long slim thighs which look rather appealing in tight jeans.

Lots of thick, honey coloured hair.

That's about it really, the rest is a bit second rate.

What a nice thread!

I've got great legs. I also love my hourglass figure, although it's taken until my 30's to learn to love it. All through my 20's I wanted to be slim 'straight up and down' like models etc, however now I really like my curves, and have realised I can still be slim, even when my body is made entirely of semi-circles grin

I like my height

I love my cheekbones

My cheekbones. I've got good bone structure. (I don't think I've ever said that or particularly thought about it before).

StringTheory Fri 08-Jan-16 13:06:52

I like my nose and my ears. They are nicely proportioned. The rest of my however.....

MitzyLeFrouf Fri 08-Jan-16 13:07:43

None of that 'the rest of me however...' nonsense. We're too good at focusing on our flaws!

Sgtmajormummy Fri 08-Jan-16 13:13:10

I've got a great pair of lips! Nice cupid's bow (prominent double line) and a generous lower lip. I keep them well moisturised, but usually wear soft lipstick shades. Brilliant red would be too much of a good thing!

JaceLancs Fri 08-Jan-16 13:36:02

I like my hands and feet! Both small and slender unlike the rest of me - I rarely wear make up but always have polished nails
I like my eyes and lips, and for my age (51) look quite young as have no wrinkles

SpecialistSnowflake Fri 08-Jan-16 13:37:34

Hmm, I don't usually think in those terms! I like my neat little ears, my full lips, and my grey eyes.

stumblymonkey Fri 08-Jan-16 13:38:07

I've got nice clear skin and no sign of wrinkles yet (finally pay off for spotty oily teenage skin!).

I like my eyes....big, brown and nice shape.

I've got great natural breasts and (when I'm not overweight) a naturally feminine hourglass shape.

I like having wavy/curly hair too...I hated it when young but love it now!

NettleFarseer Fri 08-Jan-16 13:39:27

I like my wrists.
They're super skinnygrin

BestBeforeDate Fri 08-Jan-16 13:44:58

I like my collarbones and boobs best. At 61 they're still firm and perky, more by luck than anything else, but I'm proud of them. Whole bod's in pretty good shape really, I'm very lucky!

EmilyPunkhurst Fri 08-Jan-16 13:46:47

Great thread. We talk about our flaws far more often than our good points.

I have good skin and my hair is extremely well-behaved.

FrustratedFrugal Fri 08-Jan-16 13:48:48

Lips, limbs, my height, my body - I'm a standard EU size 38, I rarely need alterations and I tend to find bargains in sample sales.

To offset, my eyes are nothing special and my hair is fine, limp and mousy.

bishboschone Fri 08-Jan-16 13:58:14

My eyes and hair on a good day .

JimmyGreavesMoustache Fri 08-Jan-16 14:04:23

small waist

love my height too - am 5'9 which is probably as tall as you can be before clothes buying becomes trickier

Floisme Fri 08-Jan-16 14:04:50

My legs, from the knee down are probably my best feature and I'm cross with myself for hiding them away for so many years.

In the right underwear, my silhouette is still good.

I have thick hair which I used to moan about but really appreciate now.

AuntieStella Fri 08-Jan-16 14:07:05

I like that I've always been slim from the elbows and knees down, that my feet are fine (and low maintenance) and that my hands are a nice shape with strong nails that grow well and naturally have a good shape.

MNetter15 Fri 08-Jan-16 14:09:01

I love my eyebrows when I'm just after a shape and tint.

Does that count? grin

mudandmayhem01 Fri 08-Jan-16 14:13:04

Flat stomach and still pert bum at 43.

GrouchyKiwi Fri 08-Jan-16 14:13:18

I like my hair. I'm a little bit vain about it blush because hairdressers always compliment it. I've never dyed it because I love the colour so much.

Since having children I like the proportion of my waist to hips to shoulders. The slightly wider hips balance me out more.

Now I just need to learn to believe my DH when he tells me I'm hot.
