Unfortunately, the way the quiz is set up, I can't post the correct answers right after you take the quiz. But I promise to post the answers (and some other info on oddball Victorian beauty routines) tomorrow morning!

"You're Practically a Victorian Yourself! Either you're a very well-preserved 150-year-old, or you're a true Victorian scholar. How else to explain your high score and serious knowledge? Come back to BellaSugar tomorrow, when I'll fill you in on some of the more unusual beauty treatments from the 1800s." I guess all that Victorian literature I've read in college has finally paid off. :nerdgirl:
