How to be beautiful

Only eat crackers with diet cheese every day, until your body doesn’t look a day older than twelve.
Use lots of make up and spray-tan, and botox from the age of 29.
Read lots of advice books on how to conduct yourself on a date.
Never wear the same outfit twice.
Look like everyone else in your social target group.

– The media and public opinion

Well, I’d rather listen to this lady here:

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
People, more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself and the other for helping others.”

– Audrey Hepburn

It’s not as if she didn’t know what she was talking about..

    I absolutely love that Audrey Hepburn quote. Beauty is being true to yourself, not forcing yourself into a mold.

      Dito. In fact, when I see women who try extra hard to look like someone else, I will rather find that unattractive than attractive. And I dare say that the gentlemen aren’t that different.. I’ve heard guys complain about girls with too much stuff in the face ending up with “panda eyes” the next morning..
