Confidence puts a lace pearl thong to shame in the sexy department. Charisma bitch slaps cleavage every day, and twice on Sundays. Personality trumps perfection. We get it. Wall know the answers, but the key is learning how to live the answers.
You’ve heard of having a high IQ (Intelligence Quotient), and by now know the importance of an individual’s EQ (Emotional Quotient). Well, move over bacon, there’s a new meat in town: the BQ (Beauty Quotient), complete with its own standardized test (aka quiz).
So how do you really, truly, look beautiful without beer goggles or plastic surgery? How do you become one of those women who doesn’t scowl or knit her brow when she discovers a new line, a blemish, a sun spot (oh, the hell)? I’ll tell you.
Well, I won’t tell you, but I’ll share with you a new favorite find of mine, a book written by a plastic surgeon about how plastic surgery isn’t the answer to ageless, timeless, beauty: The Beauty Quotient Formula. What I love most is that it gives you real answers, not just a bunch of woo-woo talk about loving your body, caressing your arms, telling them what a great job they’re doing staying attached to your shoulders. Real answers about beauty products (not relying on the sales rep at Bergdorf’s). I’m for sure getting my hands on some Myoxinol™, Micro-Encapsulated Vitamin E and Micro-Encapsulated Retinol. No lie. I suck at my beauty regimen, but that’s about to change. And these days, I’m all about embracing change, especially when change tends to lift, lighten, and brighten!
