Kjerstin Gruys To Go A Year Without Using A Mirror

Posted: Updated:
Most brides obsess over every last detail of the big day and scour racks for the dream dress, but Ph.D candidate Kjerstin Gruys has taken on a pre-nuptial challenge of more unique proportions. The teaching fellow at the UCLA Department of Sociology has sworn off looking in a mirror for an entire year -- six months of which will lead up to her wedding.

CORRECTION: An earlier headline for this article suggested that Gruys had already accomplished her year without a mirror. In fact, she is still attempting the challenge.
