Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 557 People

    I truly believe life is too short to be unhappy.

    My greatest beauty secret is being happy with

    myself. I don't use special creams or treatments - I'll use a little bit of everything. It's a mistake to think you are what you put on yourself. I believe that a lot of how you look is to do with how you feel about yourself and your life. Happiness is the greatest beauty secret...
