My usual strategy is to avoid scales, but I made the rookie mistake.
A 2011 survey concluded that the women with makeup on (any amount) were perceived as more reliable than the same women with no makeup on. I don't know if I buy it...
A 54-year-old writer pushes readers' buttons by gleefully describing what it's like to look 25 years younger than she is (with zero plastic surgery, thank you very much).
I admit it looks weird, and makes me cringe a little at first. But as someone who actually grew up on the end of a leash, I can only be grateful.
