I said yes. I was raised with much more emphasis on brains than beauty, but I think my parents went a little overboard with that--it doesn't hurt to tell your kids they are smart AND atttractive once in awhile. I grew up feeling like I didn't always look my best and it took a lot of trial and error to find out what works for me.

I have very nice skin and people often think I am much younger than I actually am. I know that will work in my favor as I age. I also get a lot of compliments on my smile and my hair when it behaves I have a few body flaws (mainly my legs, but I have a nice hourglass shape and while I will never be slim, I know how to work with what I have.
