Musings of the Day
(This photo is over ten years old shhhh don’t tell anyone k?)
I never thought I’d run into the day when I noticed myself obsessing over anti-aging skincare. It’s just not something you think of in your early teen years or early twenties.
I think around mid-twenties you start really concentrating on the issue but sometimes you get lazy, you’re concentrating on your life too much, and you’re just not really paying attention even than.
It really depends what sort of skincare person you are. As I’ve run into many people that are quite young and already putting energy into developing the best regime for their skin even now to prevent aging in the future.
I don’t have kids and I don’t have a ton of experience raising them, dealing with them daily, etc…I’m a big child myself so I can picture myself with a baby of my own, that would be absolute chaos. Their father could sell tickets to the event like it was the circus because hells you know me raising a child would be entertainment at its best.
I don’t claim to know the proper age for makeup and I’m pretty liberal in all my views of life….but maybe…kinda, sorta..four years old might be too young for makeup.
Lindsay Cross wrote an article about how she applies makeup on her four year old daughter for special events and it went viral pretty damn fast. And you know what happens once things go viral, Lindsay started feeling the old Internet backlash….
When is your daughter too young for makeup?
What’s the most expensive tinted moisturized you’ve never tried?
Mine, Amore Pacific Moisture Bound Tinted Treatment Moisturizer at a whooping $70.
I’ve used Bloody Mary eyeshadow as hair chalk in the past because it’s fun for weekends but I can’t come into my office and see clients with a hot pink or orange streaks in my hair.
Sometimes I have to remember I’m a grown up.
Also, hair dye can damage hair terribly…so hair chalkin’ is such a great way to embrace the trend without killing your hair.
Good news if you like embracing funky fun trends with your hair, hair chalk is trending for your Summer looks!
At some point, someone will pop into my bathroom, bedroom, or fridge and see the lot of facial mists I’m hoarding and call me out on it.
Normally it begins with, “WTF!?”
And ends with me explaining how I REALLY need all these facial mists, how they are so essential to my beauty regime, how my skin might shrivel off my face and die if I don’t mist it madly…
How many facial mists does one beauty junkie need anyway?
