Five Ways To Look Better In Photos

Here's the thing. I think I am an attractive girl. But I am NOT photogenic. Like, every picture of me that looks good is accompanied by 20 others where I look busted, no joke. And because I am a tad vain -- it's okay, I admit it -- I am always trying to figure out…
