The Woman I’ll Never Be

Just Two Things

Say Goodbye to That Girl!

Say Goodbye to That Girl!

Can’t we just say “Goodbye” to that girl?! You know the one, right? The one who is always perfectly groomed. Perfectly trim. Perfectly poised. Perfectly calm. Perfectly in-control. Perfectly cheerful. Perfectly kind. Perfectly friendly. Oh, and...
