There are 2 things you can do in life that will make you look better than you really are.
3 things if you include wearing Spanx.
Firstly, if you’re giving a gift that’s kindda crappy you should always spend as much time as possible wrapping it. Use beautiful paper, silk ribbon and fresh flowers … anything to make the gift look more expensive than it is. Pretty packaging almost always fools us into thinking what’s inside is better than it really is. That’s how beautiful celebrities get away with being such assheads all the time.
Secondly, if you can’t cook, make sure your dinner table is dressed to the nines. Again … it’s all in the packaging. If what you’re eating is presented beautifully, on a perfectly laid table, chances are you won’t notice the food tastes like 15 year old shag carpeting.
Infested with weevils.
One easy way to improve the look of your dinner table is to take part in the good, old fashioned tradition of napkin folding. It might seem a bit intimidating but it really isn’t. With a bit of guidance and a big napkin, you too can fold a napkin. And therefore, you too can fool everyone into thinking your cooking is terrific!
Don’t be a chicken. There’s nothing to be frightened of … you can do it in 1 minute flat … take a look.
