OBVIOUSLY IT HELPS IF YOU START BY LOOKING LIKE ME

SELFIE RULES 3, 8 and 9 
DISPLAYED TO STUNNING EFFECT




After assiduously reviewing People magazine's hard-hitting investigative piece, Ten Rules for Taking Perfect Selfies (see post above), I decided to put their arsetacular claims to the test. 

Is it, in fact, "a breeze" to take a good selfie? 
Does one just add a filter here, a blur there? 
I tried four of their 10 rules and only cursed once.  

Rule #9 Play up one feature. Pick your favourite attribute and let it shine! Well that would be liquor.

Rule #8 Use your photoshop skills. Add hearts, flowers, whatever feels right! Well those exclamation marks sure as fuck don't feel right. But that little dark monster perched on my head? I actually think he is what took over where my virginity left off.

Rule #6 Reveal your natural beauty. Take a selfie with no makeup, no lipstick, no eyeliner ... Yeah let me stop you right there, cuz that is never gonna happen. Moving briskly along. 

Rule #3 Filter, filter, filter. Now that's more like it! 

In conclusion, I would have to say yes, it is pretty easy to take a selfie. You won't look like Miranda Kerr, I'm not gonna lie, they don't make filters thick enough for that. But all things considered, it's doable. So now it's your turn. Go have yourself some selfie time!

EDITOR'S NOTE: I love selfie time! I do it every night!

MY NOTE: I'm gonna throw up.
