During a lunch date with a girlfriend last week, I leaned in to her and said in a quiet, concerned tone “Is everything OK? You look really tired and worn out.” She was shocked (to say the least) because she said she felt great—fabulous even! She excused herself from the table to go splash some water on her face. When she returned from the ladies’ room, she knew what I was talking about.
There on her face, under her big brown eyes, sat two huge bags that looked like a couple of last season’s Pradas. She assured me that sleep was not the issue, and her stress level was nothing to worry about.
