Overreaction or Genuine Rage? #MicroblogMondays #MondayMusings

This morning I was wondering about what to write for my regular Monday post. I had no life updates to give, have been incessantly talking beauty for the last week and have reviewed the books I read too. Suman Kher solved that problem for me when she shared this tweet.. Do you look pretty in your #Linkedin photo? Think again: pic.twitter.com/IJYuPvUwka — Suman Kher (@Suman_Kher) September 14, 2015 It has started a debate that is still going on in our twitter group.
