Cheers and beer soup, Amen update: The soup was a bust – well, it was if you ask me. The cheese just didn’t melt the way I thought it would and the addition of the sausage with casing just didn’t sit well with me.
But what made up for the bad soup was the package I received today from the oh-so-fabulous Tory Burch. Who’s ready for some sunny poolside days?! ME!
Tomorrow I have my appointment to get a new ID badge photo taken for work. Just like driver’s licenses, ID badge photos (when done wrong) can really be a Debbie Downer.
So here are some tips (via Beauty and the Feast) to remember to make your ID picture or driver’s license turn out fab:
- TIP #1 – Smile slightly
Instead of flashing a toothy smile (or none at all), keep your mouth closed and only smile slightly.
- TIP #2 – Lose 10 pounds
OK not literally. By bringing your neck forward and leaning slightly out you will create the effect of a tighter jawline, thus taking off the extra 10 pounds the camera adds.
- TIP #3 – Squinty eyes
A very slight squinty eye shows confidence. Obviously, don’t go overboard to seduce the camera — this is a standard ID picture we’re talking about.
- TIP #4 – Women with long hair, keep it looking neat
Leaving hair loose is fine, but just remember for a straight-on shot, make sure you keep your hair hanging over both your shoulders.
- TIP #5 – For men, scruff can work in your favor
To go in with a 5 o’clock shadow or not? Scruff absorbs a little more light and in bad lighting that you generally find where you get your standard ID pictures taken, this generally looks better.
- TIP #6 – Don’t wear a color too close to your skin tone
Since you probably won’t know what that color will do, go for something vibrant.
