Rumor Has It Women Think They’re Over the Hill at Age 29

I could go over and over all the sucky things that happen in your 20s. I can also go over and over all the amazing things that happen in your 20s. Just like every life stage there are the goods and the bads, but that doesn’t mean we should wish, dress, or botox our way to another age. We’ve seen that road called BRAVO tv, and it’s not so pretty!

Can we have a moment to discuss just how ridiculous all this age stuff has gotten?!

In the UK Daily Mail a study states that women think they are “over the hill” at age 29. Headlines everywhere scream that the new 50 is the new 40 and the new 40 is the new 30. So technically it would mean the new 20 is the new 10. And as cool as Willow Smith is I don’t want to be her or my 10 year old self again. Braces, giant glasses, multiplication tables…oh my!

After having two knee surgeries, a bad car wreck, and a back that pops when I sneeze you probably wouldn’t qualify me as 24 either. Yet I am.

Bahahahaha… Try to sell that in anti-wrinkling cream!

Stating that 40 is the new 30 simply implies that there is something wrong with being 40 in the first place. It’s about time we women stop comparing ourselves to the cat species (cougars, pumas, kitty cats?), stop waiting for the next fashion or beauty secret, and forget this nonsense of thinking 29 is over the hill!

The truth is if you transition your style appropriately and take care of yourself you can look just as good if not better than before.

Lets stop wanting and wishing what we can’t have and make the best of what we do!

Hot Topics

Jon Gosselin vs. TLC … I know what you’re thinking: lame, tired of it, and can we please move on?!  I would love to say yes to all three of these things right after I write this blog.  It has currently been reported by People.com that Jon (first name basis now after all the idiotic things he’s done) is now suing TLC for ruining his reputation and career. They also go on to say that TLC has caused him to lose money for his career.  HOLD UP?! I can’t believe I’m hearing this right.  You would think maybe, just maybe, that he wouldn’t blame TLC for his reputation being ruined being as he didn’t have one prior to TLC.  He might for once just blame himself.  Hmm…it wasn’t TLC that was caught allegedly dating multiple people while still being legally married, and I don’t think it was TLC that decided to go through a mid-life crisis, (and yes we know you’re only 32..it can still happen!) pierce both ears, smoke, wear embarassing t-shirts, and date a 22 year old.  Before all of this I was more on his side than Kate, but this completely irks me, and thank goodness this is the last time you’ll hear me write about it!  WHEW..I’m over it!

Next…Carrie Prejean

Oh goodness!  Where to even begin?  So I felt bad for her right after the whole incident of the pageant because even if everyone doesn’t agree with her, you can’t ask an opinion question and not want an opinion back.  However, understandably she has been defensive due to many attacks but at the same time if you have a sex tape (or whatever it is), a hot topic following you, and nude pictures out, it might be best to stay home for a while…then write the book. Don’t write a book and then expect no one to ask you questions about all the stuff that’s going on out there!  Didn’t your publicist tell you this?!

Megan Fox

Men stop slobbering, she’s taken. It’s not like you could get her anyhow. Sorry to be so harsh!  However it’s been recently said in an article by the New York Times magazine that her publicists are a little nervous, and that she believes girls think she’s a slut.  Well…Ms. Fox let’s think about this.  When you’ve been posing naked, saying obscure innuendos, and choosing roles that don’t exactly yell out “the girl next door” some might paint you in that picture.  If you want to be more likable, tone it down a bit.  How are we suppose to know about the low-key side when much of what comes out of your mouth is intended to make guys swoon, not the girls?!

Breaking News…

Breaking news…Britney Spears lipsyncs, the Kardashians are dramatic, and John Mayer can’t keep his mouth shut. Did this really need to be reported?! Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you must know that in order to become famous all you have to do is something ridiculous!

Have you ever been sitting on your couch flipping through the channels and found that there is NOTHING TO WATCH?! Well it happens to me on a regular basis, and I have recently discovered that basically anyone can be put on a reality show. Apparently, the top requirements for these “stars” are that they must be two-faced, dramatic, boy-crazy, and hold down no real apparent job. While all of these qualities create a stellar human being (sarcasm), I’d rather just stick to watching my morning news shows. Although these reality stars are becoming much of Hollywood, it is often forgotten that 15 minutes ago they were just another rude person waiting to be casted. So why is it a surprise when one poses for Playboy, drives drunk, or makes a public scene?! Like they say, “Fame just brings out more of who you were before.” So once and for all, let’s stop making  reality stars who shouldn’t be popular, famous!

Reality Check

“The Fashion World” is the only place where a size 4 becomes plus size, a decision about shoes can make or break your career, and dressing in velvet leggings is socially acceptable! However, this global industry is far from just having a silent effect. The effect is blatantly shown by the media and in the popularity of current magazines. I can’t say I’ve never read one or haven’t flipped through them while standing in the grocery line. In fact, I love them! This brings me to the realization that the world of fashion and its followers might be in need of a reality check even if it is only for myself. If we all just took a moment to collect the $4.50 spent consistently on our obsession with fashion and celebrities we’d probably save a lot money over a lifetime and a lot of wasted time analyzing if the one shoulder dress is the way to go or maybe just the strapless with the sweetheart neck. Either way we buy into it, and we probably aren’t going to stop anytime soon! So why is it that this cultural phenomenon has become the obsession of so many teens and adults around the world? Good question, and I don’t know the exact answer. However, rather than answering the question, it might be best to figure out how to engage in a possible proper healthy relationship with this so-called media frenzy. I believe it is best to give myself and fellow fashion followers a needed reality check or should I say chic(okay, so it’s a bad a joke).

Anyhow, clothes were originally worn to bring covering to the body and for warmth, but I haven’t read anything that states that clothes were originally only for high-class fashionistas or the 10 best and worst dressed list.  Also, we need to remember that fashion is an expression of our personal style.  It’s not like the industry is curing cancer or solving world hunger. Of course, we all want to look our best. It’s a natural instinct; however, when we start trying to look our best just to impress others or because it’s what the “magazines” say is cool we’ve completely lost ourselves.  When all is said and done I think it’s best we step away from the magazine rack, take a deep breath in, and remember CLOTHES are really just CLOTHES!

Headline Makers

Halloween: the day where straight men can dress gay (which usually means they look good), sophisticated women can dress like strippers, little children can dress like villains, and candy is given out free…what a great holiday?! In light of the thousands of people trick or treating and celebrating this haunted event I thought it was only appropriate to discuss some of the most frightening headlines of the week!

Balloon (i’m really in the attic) Boy’s Dad, Jon (mid-life crisis, for sure and please stop wearing those stupid t-shirts) Gosselin, and Levi ( 15 minutes more please…) Johnston have made the top of the list for the most idiotic headlines of the past week. Back in the day being famous actually meant offering a talent that not many had or a skill that many sought after. It’s amazing to me that all three of these “characters” have actually done nothing (literally… nothing) to even be deserving top headlines except for make fools out of themselves.

Advice to the so-called Headline Makers: No one really cares! They’re just paying attention for the next embarrassing move you’re going to make.

Question to the people: Is shipping these 3 off in a balloon all that bad of an idea? I think not!
