DeDe: Do My Friends Make Me Look Good?

Oh Dog! DeDe here with more beauty advice to look and feel your best!


Want to look good? Then feel good!

Today’s recommendation: surround yourself with happy people.

The people around you do have an effect on how you feel. If you’re only around those who are unhappy or complaining, how does that make you feel on the inside?

But when you’re around someone who smiles at you, do you find yourself smiling and feeling good? I’ll bet you do.

And people who make us laugh are most certainly to make us feel good inside (provided we’re not laughing at another’s expense, of course).

When you’re around the people who feel good inside, you smile, relax, and let go of stress. Smiling, relaxed people are more attractive.

So find the people who make you feel good inside, and stick with them.

Spending time with Bubba Cat makes me feel good inside- and out!

And never leave home without this beauty product- a smile!

  7. Hai DeDe! I totally agree with your advice! I like being with someone who always have positive thinking, a smile on their faces and are cheerful because they make me happy, too! You, too DeDe, you always make me feel cheerful and smile! That’s one of the reasons why I love reading your post! Have a lovely Sunday! 🙂
