you have the face you deserve

Q: Dear GreenSmoothieGirl, is that photo on the homepage really you at 41, or is it an old photo like Ann Landers used to use?   Did you retouch the photo? A: I shouldn’t even run this question, because it’s so self-serving.   But it comes from a European reader, and it’s funny, no?   […]
