‘Girl In The Mirror’ Winners Announced!

‘Girl In The Mirror’ Winners Announced!

Earlier this fall, ELIXHER partnered with Girl in the Mirror author Alix B. Golden for an exclusive giveaway. In order to win a signed copy of the book, ELIXHER readers had to answer: “Look in the mirror. Who do you see?”

We’re excited to finally announce our winners. Congrats to Leo and Tatiana! Check their responses below:

Leo wrote:

“When I look in the mirror I see a stranger.
I don’t look like my siblings.
I have brown eyes to their green.
I have dark skin to their fair.
I was told I looked like my dad’s sister; maybe I was her love child?
I have never liked what I see but for once in my life I am determined to do something about it instead of assuming the image is permanent.”

Tatiana explained:

“I never saw my mother when I looked in the mirror. For ages I wondered if I was adopted (or something) because I never saw the resemblance. We don’t have the same skin shade, the same shape face, the same anything – for the most part.

So when I looked in the mirror I saw my acne, my eyebrows that my mother felt were too bushy, my unruly hair that I didn’t know how to manage. I wasn’t sure who or what I looked like; but I definitely didn’t think I was too cute, or attractive. I’m a complete Plain Jane, invisible to the rest of the people around me.

For the longest I avoided mirrors, and rejected what I saw in them. And today, I still avoid them because I much prefer the image I have of myself, versus the one I keep seeing. Maybe one day the images will line up – but not today. Today I’ll gaze at my internal mirror.”

Leo and Tatiana, thank you for your honest responses. Please email your mailing addresses to
