Being Different

Imagine if people just let go of conformity. I think it would be quite liberating. For example, if you felt like going to the shops in a Victorian dress, or if you wanted to go to the cinema in a Spiderman suit?

If people could just let go of social stigmas it would be so freeing! If you like Mozart, you do that! If you like Chess, you do that!

One of the worst things anyone had ever said to me is “why cant you be like so-and-so.” Why be a copy? They say copies are ‘sheep’ but I bet even they have their own personalities. (I know what I mean!)

Individuality is fading, just be yourself!

Post-Makeover Conundrums

I’ve watched various makeover shows in my life and there’s something I frequently wonder whilst the credits roll; what happens next?

Sometimes the subject has only one outfit they are made over in, sometimes three or four. My question is, what are they supposed to do when they have to be washed? Would they be allowed to wear their old clothes whilst they stand waiting for their new clothes to dry? Although, this also gets me wondering, what about all the old clothes the presenter threw out on the subjects behalf? Are they supposed to spend a small fortune on similar clothes, or just the ones they are given…forever?

And what about hair and makeup? What if they can’t create amazing waves every morning whilst getting the kids ready for school, making packed lunches and ironing their husbands shirt for work? What if they don’t know how to apply that lipstick to make their lips look bigger whilst cleaning baby sick off the carpet? There are more important things in life than being conscious of what you wear and what you look like.

There are two things that makeover subjects probably think more of than making sure that blouse goes with that skirt: Either they are busy providing for their family, having a social life, or just doing day-to-day things. Yes, that amazing flowing dress you were wearing when the presenter turned the mirror around to show you the new you, but you cant wear it whilst cleaning the oven. Well, you could

The Over-inflated-balloon-effect

The obsession with sticking needles in your face is becoming alarmingly more popular. I keep reading about people having had botched surgery, things going wrong etc and I wonder why people continue to do it. To me, its not necessarily the person doing the procedure who is to blame, but the body merely telling the chemicals that they don’t mix. Or to tell the person getting the procedure that they look ridiculous and they should spend the money on something that they actually need like a new fridge or something. It especially annoys me when people have surgery when they have children. Its not setting a good example and it would seem that they are focusing their attention on their looks than focusing on their family.

And then theres botox. Why deny it? Everyone gets old. I’d rather look wrinkly and show that I’ve shown emotion than look like an over inflated balloon with two raw sausages for lips…
