A Body of Work

15 Nov

Never has anything so consumed, so overwhelmed, so befuddled like the human appearance. It is a simultaneous source of bliss and despair.

Perhaps it is our society? I can’t say I know, but I can say I have my opinions.

Adriana Lima Defends her Victoria’s Secret Diet

So, the bombshell model apparently goes on a hardcore diet and exercise regimen before the big show. Why this is shocking, I haven’t quite figured out. She has nutritionists and trainers monitoring her every move, much like a training athlete. I mean yes, it is odd to eat only liquid food for 2 weeks but I can surmise she doesn’t do this everyday of her life. Is it not odd that athletes consume thousands of calories to gain weight? Nobody seems to care much then. I wouldn’t normally be so passive about extreme eating, but it seems to me Adriana lives a healthy lifestyle. She has experts monitoring it all, something us normal folk don’t have.  Obviously, average people couldn’t subscribe to this kind of lifestyle. But average people are also not strutting down a glitter-covered catwalk in underwear and giant ten pound wings.

Disney Stars Are Not Fat

Well….duh.  Miley Cyrus took to her Twitter to “blast” critics for calling her fat.  Miley Cyrus clearly has never been “fat” a day in her life.  Demi Lovato answered back on her Twitter applauding Cyrus’ Tweet. Demi has famously been recovering from an eating disorder for the last few months. Many have called her big and fat. I would know, recovering from an eating disorder is hard and even harder when you feel your body is ballooning out of control (although it isn’t). When you first begin recovery, your body tends to gain more than it needs because, well it doesn’t know when you are going to haul off and starve half to death again. You feel majorly uncomfortable. But eventually, it balances out. It would be unbelievably hard to do in front of the whole world. So….major props to Demi for doing so.

And Yes… You can Bleach Your Teeth Too Much

Bleach-orexia. Making me wonder when having snow white teeth became “normal.”

30 Sep

So I haven’t blogged in oh, I don’t know, lightyears. The inspiration to do so hits me occasionally, but I often never act on it.

Today is the day of change my friends! Haha. So I thought I’d compile just some things that I’m reading about/enjoying at the moment.

I usually spend a good 30 minutes reading all my various news sites each day. You find a lot of very curious things along the way.

Reebok Reaches $25 Million Settlement Over Sneakers 

Why you should never depend on a gimicky product to do the working out for you. And why you probably should avoid things promoted by the Kardashian women.

Granted, that is Sketcher’s toning “shoe” but I imagine the effects are similar. This whole escapade didn’t shock me one bit.

Chipotle launches new Asian-Inspired Fast Food Venture

Selling ” rice and noodle bowls and Vietnamese sandwiches.”

Lion Cub Rescued by Mom

Everyone together now…. awwwwwwwwwww. Oh the cuteness of a Lion King-esque rescue of one fluffy lion cub by its brave (but probably pissed off) mother. I wish there had been a video, but I’ll settle for these photos

by Jean-Francois Lagrot .

Cargill Turkey Sickens 100+

Food Inc. anyone? If you haven’t watched it yet, at least watch the section about disease outbreaks in food, particularly Salmonella. This particular turkey has been “recalled” ,yet still manages to be sickening

people.  Add this to the growing list of outbreaks this month alone (Tyson ground beef, Cantaloupes with lysteria…) and ponder what exactly is happening to our food system.

Mexico City Plans to Make Marriage a More Temporary Thing

Lawmakers are tossing around the idea of having marriages that are valid for x number of years, the minimum being 2.  Couples would have the option to renew, pending they have a valid library card, I mean…. wait….

A Review of Things

4 Mar

I thought of this post as I was trekking across train tracks and traffic along my way to work. I have used a lot of products in my life…why not give an honest opinion on them?

First up, My knock-off version of Beyonce’s Heat perfume

I bought this in NYC on my trip there. My travel sized, airport-approved fragrance was not cutting it. I found the knockoff version of this in a store for $4. So, I bought it. I don’t exactly know what Beyonce’s fragrance smells like, but this has a very fruit-based scent. I don’t hate it, but I don’t love it. However, it actually lasts and stays smelling strong. That is a rarity among knockoffs.

Victoria’s Secret Sexy Little Things Noir

Oh, VS how you have trapped me once again. I was sadly disappointed in this perfume. It smells fantastic. It lasts for 2 seconds. I can’t smell it at all a little while after I put it on. I even splurged and bought the eau de parfum, not the body mist, mind you. Yet, it seems one would have to bathe in it to get it to stay put. And I will not.

Guess Perfume

Very happy with this one. Smells great, last forever and looks great on the counter. I found it for a nice deal at a T.J.Maxx. Have loved it ever since. Extra Bonus- the bottle can fall to the floor over and over and not shatter. I know because I have knocked and dropped mine more times than I can recall.

L’Oreal HIP gel eyeliner

Oh boy. I bought this either in highschool or freshmen year of college. I bought it in purple thinking it would bring out my green eyes (just like the magazines said!). Sadly, it just made me look like I had a terminal illness. I guess I should taken my paleness into account. It was a pretty neat idea for a product- pot of cream eyeliner with little mini angle brush. In reality, it went on super dark, flaked a lot and that mini brush? Lost in the deep sea of my makeup bag.

Revlon Super Lustrous lipgloss

This is my current lipgloss (when it isn’t lost.) I have it in Peach Petal. It is one of many replacements I’ve tried after Neutrogena discontinued my beloved lipgloss. Revlon’s gloss goes on as a nice color. It is kind of sticky and gooey. It also goes on thick. So I usually just barely dab it on.

Revlon Creme Shadows in Not Just Nude

I’m noticing a Revlon pattern here. Anyhow, I really like these shadows. They are creamy and go on really well. Only drawback, I only use two colors. The rest stay untouched. Worth the money?

Sally Hansen Spray Foundation

Oh my, talk about a throwback! I used this in high school. My best friend at the time thought it was really weird. It probably was. I used to spray it in my hand and then rub it on. It smelled weird, but I grew to like the smell (even weirder.) It was really oily, and though I loved it at the time…I would never wear this now.

Maybelline Plumping lipgloss

I had this in a dark pink color before I lost it (me and gloss). It made my lips burn. Then, after awhile, it would dry them out. I didn’t enjoy it much.
