Happy National Selfie Day! National Selfie Day was created by DJ Rick McNeely from Fishbowl Radio Network in Arlington TX on June 21, 2014. Here at Sweatpants & Coffee, we are all about self-acceptance and believe that selfies are a form of that.
“When we take selfies, we’re feeding our desire to understand ourselves better in a visual way. You see people trying different identities, trying different ways of looking at themselves, trying to understand how other people see them, and trying to see what their ‘aspirational’ self looks like,” says Rutledge.
We are also all about connection – we connect with you, our Tribe, daily with our posts and think selfies are an excellent way to connect with your internet friends near and far. In honor of this day here are some selfies of the S&C staff whose posts you read every day!
Our founder and fearless leader, Nanea. Sweatpants & Coffee is her brainchild and none of us would be here without her.

Anxiety Blob! S&C’s official mental health mascot, created by Nanea. You can follow his adventures on Instagram @therealanxietyblob. Blob’s arms are too short for a proper selfie so they asked me to be the photographer.
