Who can finish that phrase?? Let’s look at the very helpful definition (where is that sarcasm font???) that Urban Dictionary provides for us, shall we?
I’ve been thinking a lot about body issues lately. As I stated in my last post, I have dropped a few lbs. Though it is literally a few pounds, they make a huge difference in the way that my clothes fit. Something about the shlumpiness I feel in my slightly too big clothes serves to highlight my unhappiness with my chesitcals. I have always been small busted, but somehow lately I have been feeling… no busted. There are tons of celebs who are lusted after that share this fate. They seem to wear their flat chests proudly. Is this illusion or fact, I wonder.
Hell, Debra Messing was a good enough sport to endure being the butt of several no boobies jokes while on Will & Grace! I don’t know that I could do that….I’m questioning the wisdom of this post.
I tried to dig myself out of this funk by playing with makeup. This is a go-to strategy that usually fails. I am never going to be a full makeup girl. I have returned most of it, thanks to my sister pointing out that I could. I was this close to dyeing my hair, too. It’s at a weird length right now. It’s too big to wear out because it’s cold and my hats won’t fit on it that way. I’ve decided to wait until the spring and consider it again. I’ve even been putting off visiting tattoo parlors with the hubby lest I end up with something I will permanently regret.
I get this restless MUST CHANGE SOMETHING RIGHT NOW feeling often, but it is more acute at the moment. I think it may be the one-two punch of too much beautiful people blog gazing and fashion magazine overload. Pinterest is a good thing (a really good thing) but it has upped my beauty quotient by a lot. That in turn, I think, has affected my spirits. I know it nearly had an affect on my pocket book with all of my beauty purchase splurges. I am still stuck with a pair of these after seeing them on a blog. You tell me where a mom of four, who can barely walk in heels, plans to go in these babies??
Will taking a break from a semi steady diet of online and print beautiful people make a difference? Weigh in. Please.
