Time For a New ‘Do

I’ll let it down with a brush and blowdry on special occasions, but most of the time it’s just easier to tie it up. Here’s what it looked like at my sister’s baby shower (she’s due any day now!). I’m the one without a tiara.

What things do you do to increase your confidence? Eating fish reminds me of my honeymoon and makes me feel special. I’ve also found that wearing dangling earrings makes me stand a bit taller.
