Lynne Reid Banks
The '50s in general are written off as a boring decade following the turmoil of the Second World War and its immediate aftermath - the postwar Labour government, the cold war, the arrival of the New Look in fashion, etc. But I remember it as a very exciting time - a pioneering, rule-breaking time, especially for the young.
5
Dick Cheney

Looking beautiful isn't just about what you apply on your face. It's the little things you do that matter.

All these contribute to me being fit and looking good.
