Earlier this summer an Australian television reporter caught Chef Gordon Ramsey by complete surprise when she asked whether his “refreshed looks” had anything to do with Botox treatment in America, and whether America did this to him. I could detect a little sarcasm in her voice when she asked the latter part of her question, and it was this particular part that caught my attention more than anything else. Read More
We all have these types of photo, looking fresh faced and effortlessly young.
I don’t think that you have to be a narcissist if you are one of those people who notices when certain things about your appearance have changed. I’m not saying that looks are the most important things in life, absolutely not, but I do recognize that internal angst that we all go through, at some point during our life, because physical change as we age, is something that we do not readily accept. Why should we, when things were so good before? Read More
I don’t know many women who’d say that Mr. Brosnan is unattractive because of the lines on his face.
We have a pretty good idea of how most women feel about wrinkles, but not much has been said about men and their feelings toward those pesky lines. Read More
I’ve been there, I’ve done it before—not a totally botched procedure—but I’ve had too much Botox administered by a doctor, no less, who seemed to ignore my specific instructions for very light Botox. The result for me was a forehead that was much too frozen, and eyebrows that were stretched to the limits. Read More
The pristine, empty beaches at St. Kitts.
I’ve spent the past week vacationing on the beautiful Island of St. Kitts, in the Caribbean. I was not very familiar with the Caribbean and as such did not really know what to expect in terms of weather either. Also, because I reside in Las Vegas, I tend to forget that other parts of the country and world are subjected to very humid weather conditions, especially during our summer time. So it’s no surprise that from the moment I exited the airplane, I was struck by a thick wave of humidity that I can further describe as muggy, sticky, suffocating and unbearable. I was beginning to regret the trip altogether. Read More
Gorgeous, and who really cares about her knees?
In a recent article (Mail Online, 07.23.09) Claudia Connell, a forty something writer, published an article about saggy knees. Her focus was primarily directed at Elle Mcpherson’s knees stating that, “Her knees looked as though she’d spent the morning cleaning doorsteps and used a Brillo pad as an exfoliator.” Read More
What makes a man attracted to a woman?
When researching the topic of what makes women and men attracted to each other, I came across a study that suggested that men correlated a woman’s age with her health. Read More
The different prosthetics the soldiers would wear.
WWI was no doubt one of the most horrific times in human history; the death toll and carnage were beyond belief, and most of the dead and injured were young. People who had hardly left their mother’s apron, now broken men with disfigured faces. There were thousands of them, and the ones who survived were nothing more than a shell of the person they used to be prior to the war. The ones who stayed behind carried the heavy burden of continuing with work and taking care of family, alone, while worrying about their loved ones. No one left this war unscathed. Read More
That’s me, in my natural non-Botox appearance.
I don’t think anyone likes wrinkles, but how many of us are willing to accept them, or rather, wear them on our face without a care in the world? Diary of a wrinkle is blog that allows me to share my thoughts on a woman’s aging process from an appearance perspective mostly. So much has been said and done to educate us about how to combat wrinkles, and how to prolong our youthful appearance with magical elixirs and groundbreaking treatments, but what about those of us who prefer to approach aging differently? There are some women, I’m sure, who prefer to accept the aging process with a little bit of grace, perhaps not fret over a crease or two on their face or upper lip. However, I’m afraid to say that these days we are the exception to the rule—a minority in a world that seems to be obsessed with promoting the look of youth. Nevertheless, our ideas are valid, our voice is important and there needs to be a platform we can turn to in order to strengthen our desire to approach our age with a nonchalant attitude towards aging and beauty. Let me make one thing clear, I’m not an evolutionary psychologist, just a social observer with a keen interest in this subject matter. Read More
