Beauty is bogus. It just is. I’m exhausted. It’s all too much. It’s also a myth. Everyone’s interpretation of beauty is up to their own device. And opinions are rampant. Some are false ideas to us. Some are brilliant. Some we make up as we go along. It’s imaginary. And also a journey. One’s belief of beauty is certainly not the others. But let’s be honest. We, the collective souls floating around the space these days searching for serums that save us, searching for ideas to feel beautiful, it’s as intoxicating as it is tiresome. Some days I’m over it and I skip all the serums, or my hair is going gray because I don’t have time for an appointment and I feel like it’s just a big bunch of bogus. Then I wake up the next day, and it’s on. I want to feel pretty. And I think that’s the majority. We’re all winging it, but we all want to know what works. And yes, we all want to feel pretty. I’m over 40, and I try it all. And if I swore I’d never do Botox before this post, don’t call me a liar if I change my mind. And here’s why.


Girls. I found magic in a bottle. Not the kind that’s reverse aging, sorry that’s not real, but the kind that saves your face before a big awards week like we have next week. It’s Mario Badesco’s drying lotion. If you have a pimple (which I've complained about recently on my insta stories), you stick your q-tip in this magic potion to the bottom of the bottle (don’t shake), dab your pimple and it dies. It’s dead. Like, life over. Poor buddy. Of course some are stubborn and take a little longer, but I kid you not, there is no other pimple killer than this. I hope this is around when my twin boys go through puberty because this stuff is magic.


Ok. Here's the deal. I'm at that point in life where I consider wearing my hair down as making an effort. This is truth. So much truth. I'm not complaining and saying my life is in shambles and I can't get my shit together, but listen, twin toddlers that are two years old, are enough for me to want to stay in my pajamas all day every day. And that's not exaggerating. So with all due respect to those who aren't slumming it at home these days with babies and get out in the real world every day with a plethora of products in their hair and on their face, I'm just going to break it down in the most simplest terms, by the most simple laid back non product junkie I know, Me.
