I’m obsessive about how I look. That being said, when I came across an article on Glamour magazine’s online site called 8 Little Things That Can Make You Unpretty, I had to take a peek. They listed the following:
1. Snapping Your Gum
Guilty: I do this one sometimes and I know I do it! lol I used to do it to irk my boss, on purpose. One day, he said something about me needing to take etiquette classes and was DEAD serious. I just laughed and sauntered out. I HAVE taken those classes Jerk!
2. Wearing a perma- pout
Guilty: it’s my natural face. Since my bottom lip hangs a lil’ bit, I think people always think I look angry or sad. But what do u expect? I refuse to walk around grinning like a Cheshire for no reason.
3. Being a mirror-izer
Guilty: LOL. Kanye said it best, “We all self-concious.”
4. Tugging at your strapless top
Not Guilty. I rarely do strapless clothing.
5. Cursing like a sailor
Guilty. I keep trying. I know my man hates it.. and I’m trying to be a lady. But it’s hard when no other word can describe the feeling you have in that minute better than F&*K! Plus I know it’s not very Christianly for me to keep on this track.
6. Primping in Public
No Contest. lol. I don’t know if I am guilty or not. I do constantly apply gloss!
7. Publicly criticizing your own body
Guilty. I do this but have made the effort to stop. It’s obnoxious and I know it, especially when I am not putting forth any effort to change it. Fact is, I think I look pretty good (besides wanting a lil’ lipo bc I hate working out) and my flaws, I think I disguise well about 89% of the time… so I need to quit.
8. Frying your skin.
Not guilty. I’ve been to the tanning bed prolly about three times in life, but it breaks my skin out. I’m allergic to the sun. I have tried self tanning but it stinks. lol. Soooo, I’ve elected to love the pale I am in.
Ladies, are you guilty of any of these? Men- do you agree with the list? Do you have any to add?
