I guess since I no longer have a job to think about, I've decided to focus on all my personal/physical flaws. I don't like being 41, I've said it before, but you know I'll say it again (and again, and again, and again, and again...you know how I am!). I just want to be 23 again, make different life choices and take better care of myself! Don't get me wrong, I have taken care of myself- I was a runner for YEARS (and am going to be one again THIS summer!!), I've deprived myself of eating whatever I want (fries from Wendy's and oreo cakesters), I've gone to bed early, I've never smoked (ever!), I don't tan and really never have (except for the annual cruise), I wear my seat belt, I don't over drink, I see my Dr. yearly, I get a flu shot, I shower daily, I moisturize, I see my dentist, I floss every time I eat anything...
Geesh, I am a FREAKING square!!
But, as I believe, there is ALWAYS room for improvement!!
Let's start with my lashes... Can they ever be too long or too thick?
NO, they can't!! Are mine thinning? No, but why wait till it's too late! Mascara sometimes irritates my contacts so I've tried false eyelashes, but then Brooke Shields was telling how years of wearing false eyelashes while modeling did damage to hers and she has to use that Latisse... So now the falsie's scare me- you know with all my modeling gigs and my desire to overreact.
Let me introduce my new BFF:
I've only been using it since Monday night, so we'll be following this story
Next up... my FACE
If you've been reading for a while you know how I believe EVERYTHING from those "as seen on TV adds"
A few years back OPRAH listed a Clarisonic as one of her favorite things, so of course, I knew I had to have one. They run right around $200. I bid on one several over at ebay but never was the WINNER. I tried the $15 Neutrogena wave
I'm on my 3rd one- dropping them in the shower does nothing good for them! They're ok, like I said, but I tend to prefer something that feels like broken glass being rubbed into my face - I want to know it's REALLY working! So like a voice from Heaven the ladies from HSN popped up as I was channel flipping the other night...
Don't ya know their Nutra Sonic facial cleanser was on SALE and get this...
I was all over that word free and before I knew what happened I was at the computer ordering one!
So, now this little baby is on it's way to me!
You know, the Mister is only 6 days shy of being exactly 10 1/2 years OLDER than me, so I have to work very hard to keep up this trophy wife status!
A little boy in Darling's class has a dad who's a Plastic Surgeon... No, no, I don't want new boobs (with my goal of becoming a runner again that's the last thing I need), but a little tweak to my nose would be a wonderful anniversary gift- me thinks!
Although the thought of that man taking a hammer to my nose probably will ensure me living with my current schnaz forever!
Ok ladies, have a GREAT weekend! I think I'll lay out in the sun while smoking Camel
non-filters and taking shots of Wild Turkey!
Also, I'll just be making a little plug about the BABY HAT DRIVE at the end of each post:
As most of you know, my daughter was adopted from China and I left a little piece of my heart there. I'm collecting hats to keep the children and babies warm in the winter. Many live in orphanages that are without heat.
1. make a baby hat, toddler hat, or kid sized hat (you can take the non-crafty way out and buy one if you must)
2. email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org for my address.
3. I'll take care of shipping them to CHINA next fall.
any questions- please feel free to email me!!
