Me In My Place ® - beautiful women at home

Real women in their own place.  Not too crazy and just a pinch of naughty…

By creating evocative and alluring portraits of women with body types that have traditionally been left out of mainstream media, Me In My Place is redefining a genre that has been over-run with unrealistic expectations of what it means to be beautiful.  With full acceptance of the “male gaze”, the images promote not just acceptance, but also an aspirational message about everyday appeal.  The project is a celebration and is meant to be fun and open to all.

In an effort to monetize the project to keep it going, we created a simple mobile web app, more commonly called THE MIMP APP (https://mimp.findrow.com).  This gave fans of the project a simple and inexpensive way to show support.  In exchange, they receive more images, exclusive images that are not on the tumblr, and the ability to quickly view and ‘like’ their favorite content.

The MIMP APP was such a success, we decided there must be other content providers like us who would like to give their fans something extra, so we created FINDROW.  With flexibility that Instagram and Facebook won’t allow, we give our content providers the freedom to express themselves as they see fit… even if that is not always safe for work ;-)  Again, they control their own content and are leading the conversation about how they feel beautiful in the world.  For a complete list of all the Findrow apps, click here.

Oh, and I almost forgot, we shot a quick little film too…  Thanks again for a great shoot Alison, you’re an absolute doll…  knock em dead out there.

Sorry again for any commercials that play on this…  I’m working on getting some hard copies of the videos.

"Pour it in with the glass tilted and kind of coat the edges as it’s coming in. Fill it up around three-quarters of the way and let it settle so all the bubbles rise to the top. Then you push the tap back — it releases Guinness without the nitrous, and that’s what you use to fill up the rest of the glass. What I do not understand is how there are people who can draw pictures in the foam as they’re pouring — that I was not able to master.”

"I was a VIP bottle-service girl at a nightclub. It was Halloween night, and I was dressed as Cammy from Street Fighter, so I was basically just in a leotard. Some guy took out a wad of singles and just threw them in the air right near where I was. People dove for the money, and it was chaos, but I was sitting there holding over a thousand dollars in those check books they give you — and all of a sudden this riot starts around me. It’s just one of those things that you see in rap videos. One of our bouncers — thank God — he literally picked me up from my armpits and swung me out of the chaos. And you’re like, Yay! I got three dollars and a broken finger.”

"And I made some really great friends there, but they lived in all different parts of the country, and that was back in the day when calling long-distance on your land line was super expensive. My parents didn’t like me calling them a lot so we all signed up for AOL Instant Messenger names. I was literally one of the first people to have a screen name. And that’s how I kind of started my whole social-media thing.”

"Cee Lo hits on anything with boobs. My 87-year-old grandmother actually emailed me a few days ago to tell me that her favorite on The Voice was Cee Lo, and it’s because he has a warm, soothing voice and a kind smile. And I was like, Oh, Mama, if you only knew.”

"I’ve had boyfriends who are like, Text me a sexy picture of you. And I’m like, Honestly? No. Because I don’t know where that’s going to end up five years from now. You just have to be so careful about what you’re putting out there. The entire world is connected through the Internet.”

"When I moved to L.A., I made a promise to myself that the first big chunk of money I made out here, I would buy a piano. I thought I was going to make a big chunk of money off, like, an acting gig. But it ended up being because I won the showcase showdown on The Price Is Right.”
