10 reasons I love taking selfies (and why you should, too)

I’m THAT GIRL on your Facebook feed: the one posting all those $#%* selfies.

I have a name for people like me: Selfie-Indulgents. (Oh, it’s not at all a derogatory term. Day spas have created a whole industry around the concept of indulging in the “self.”)

Why yes. Yes we do, actually.
