Hmmm. This got me to thinking. I've been doing it all wrong for years. I hardly ever look good in pictures, but Angelina does. Now what can I do about this? I did a little experiment. What if everyday people adopted Jolie-ing into their lives?
Exhibit 1: Before & After
I think Angie's on to something. So I elicited the help of the important people in my life. First, Rach from the blog Life Ever Since. Normally, she looks really frumpy when she sweeps the kitchen, but look at this!
And then there's sweet Natalie. She can even make a minivan look good. But to be honest, she's been "Jolieing" since before Angelina even did it.
And as you can see from the photo below, the Jolieing fixes my other photo dilemma: Kids not looking at the camera. It's a miracle! Problem solved!
Here's my dad making his blog debut. Woo. HOT! Incidentally, my father is not a stranger to sassy poses. Right Dad?
Sadly, the pose doesn't work for everyone. I think your heart just has to be in it. Case in point. Total lack of fierceness. Perhaps it was the outfit.
