Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

Have you noticed that certain mirrors make you look fat?

I was at Parkson Pavilion yesterday trying on an Editor Pants (first time I've heard of such a pants). Like all natural woman trying on a pair of pants, turning to see if that piece of clothing will make my butt look fat is a must. It's a deciding factor whether I'll purchase it or not.

So I turned by butt to the mirror for that deciding factor moment. To my horror, my entire butt looked like it oozed fat and celulite, like I didn't go to the gym since days of yonder. Most pants usually don't make my butt look big, but this time it's not. Help me ... I'm becoming a pear !!!

Then I took a good look at my whole body in the mirror. This time my entire body looked fatter than usual. So it's not the pants after all ... Did my weight increase dramatically lately? Did I neglect exercise and diet till I've reached the point of no return? What happened to my hourglass figure that I worked so hard to maintain?

Right there and then I swore to go on a drastic diet and to increase my gym visits.

That evening in my office washroom, I took another look at my butt to see the horrible sight. This time my butt didn't look that fat anymore. I wonder why ...

At home I stood in all my glory before the mirror. This time I looked not too bad ...

So will the real slim mirror please stand up?

Yup, its that damn mirror's fault. Sometimes it makes me wonder how the hell do they expect to sell stuff when they intall such mirrors. So weird.

Salt & Turmeric,

I'm going to stick to the phrase 'know thy body' before stepping into any fitting room and letting the damn mirror there distort my self image.

Oh! those darn mirrors. I too wonder like Farina (Salt&Turmeric), how do they expect to sell their stuff when they install mirrors from horror hall. :)

Yeah, stick to "know thy body". You know what works for you. Some mirrors just don't do us justice.
