Oh, to be a teenager again — at least in memory 🙂 When I was an adolescent, I had a very bad hair cut, frizzy dry hair that was held in place with gel that further fried my hair LOL. I also had buck teeth, bushy eyebrows and I was chubby. I also had a terrible lack of style in clothes: baggy jeans, unflattering tops, outdated attire. I had no idea how to dress; only that I knew how to put on my pants and blouses. Hey, nobody really guided me as to how on earth I'm supposed to dress LOL. But thanks to some things call beauty magazines and self awareness, I was able to teach myself. I think I did a decent job of learning.
