Deena Nicole has always had a positive attitude, and the spunky meatball has never been ashamed to be herself on and off camera. It’s one of the things we love about her, and she continues to amaze us with her outlook on life even in her post-Jersey Shore days. “I’m not trying to hide anything,” Deena says in her newest homemade video that she shared with fans to introduce the new vid-sharing site, Mobli.

In the vid she apologizes for her appearance, explaining that she “just woke up," and included the tags “morningbreath” and “messyhair” in the video’s title. But for someone who just woke up and hasn’t even brushed her teeth yet, we think she looks pretty darn cute!

While we adore her normal guidette look — fake-eyelashes, bronzer and all — we think Deena’s so very pretty makeup-free as well. Even when she was hungover and exhausted from partying all night with her roomies on Jersey Shore, she still managed to look super cute. 

Lately Deena’s been cutting back on the drinking and working more on her fitness and health. She even showed off her svelte, toned figure in a recent runway show that benefited an AIDS charity. Go Deena!
