My Big Nose and Other Natural Disasters by Sydney SalterIt’s the end of junior year, and summer is about to begin. The Summer of Passion, to be exact, when Jory Michaels plans to explore all the possibilities of the future—and, with any luck, score a boyfriend in the process. But Jory has a problem. A big problem. A curvy, honking, bumpy, problem in the form of her Super Schnozz, the one thing standing between Jory and happiness. And now, with the Summer of Passion stretched before her like an open road, shes determined for Super Schnozz to disappear. Jory takes a job delivering wedding cakes to save up for a nose job at the end of the summer; she even keeps a book filled with magazine cutouts of perfect noses to show the doctor. But nothing is ever easy for accident-prone Jory—and before she knows it, her Summer of Passion falls apart faster than the delivery van she crashes. In this hilarious and heartbreaking novel, Sydney Salter delivers a story about broadening your horizons, accepting yourself, and finding love right under your nose.
Everyone is sharing pictures of their big NOSES on Twitter – and here’s why
I have a big nose. Clearly, they think I must be "ethnic" to have a schnoz. So that ski-slope effect at the top was never meant to be there. By about 16, my nose had set in its final resting place and became a topic of discussion. From that moment on, I decided to thank my various soccer injuries for introducing me to homemade feta cheese. Not long after that, I remember a particularly handsome guy from my small town asking me over for Sunday dinner. His mom would be SO happy if he brought home a nice Italian girl.
Journalist Radhika Sanghani launched the hashtag sideprofileselfie today in a bid to break the big nose taboo. The year-old told The Sun Online she wants her campaign to spark a change in the beauty industry. I want women with big noses to be in TV adverts in movies, and magazines. Despite originally thinking that only women would get in touch, Radhika says she has been receiving messages all day from men who have struggled with their big nose insecurity. She said: "I think it comes from not seeing anybody who looks like you when you're watching TV or movies or reading magazines. Radihika, who was held back as a teenager because she felt "ugly", says she has been touched by how many people have shared a side-on picture with her online. One supporter praised her campaign, saying: "Finally someone who dares say that a strong-nosed woman can be beautiful in a world where miniature noses are the standard.
If you feel like you have an abnormally big nose, it can be easy to feel attractive , but when you don't fit the mold, you really have to work it.

As someone with a strong nose — big nose, schnoz, whatever you wanna call it — I know it isn't always an easy look to embrace., It took years for me to learn to love it.

Women all over the world responded by tweeting pictures of themselves using the hashtag and embracing their "big noses. For women like Anna Woolston, 39, growing to love her nose has been a long journey that is still a work in progress. However, after many years, Woolston has come to embrace and accept her larger nose. Las Vegas singer Kaci Machacyk, 31, who got a nose job at age 15, also joined in the hashtag.
