Desperate Housewives‘ leading lady, Gabrielle Solis, gives some beautiful advice to her daughter, Juanita, in a recent episode. Juanita feels that she isn’t attractive and wants to use makeup, her mother tells her that she doesn’t need makeup and asks her to promise that she will be:
“brave and funny and creative” as she wants her daughter “to be more than just a shell, I want you to have the whole rich gooey center.”

What wonderful advice – and very timely. A great new site has just been launched this week for tween girls (Juanita will have to wait as the content is for 8-14 year olds).

When does Juanita get to wear makeup? Mom says that she can wear it the day she realizes that she doesn’t really need it. :)
