‘Try’ by Colbie Caillat : “It’s this song I’ve had in my head my entire life about personal insecurities, imperfections, self-confidence issue. I thought I was the only person who felt that way and now I release this song that so many people around the world are relating too, so many different age ranges, men and women.”
Beauty is about perception, not about make-up. I think the beginning of all beauty is knowing and liking oneself. You can’t put on make-up, or dress yourself, or do you hair with any sort of fun or joy if you’re doing it from a position of correction.

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you probably realize I am not a big fan of the Beauty Industry. It is not that I am against many of the products. I’m just against the entire multi-billion dollar machine that tells women they aren’t good enough unless they use these products.
I’m against women being told they must color their hair or hide their wrinkles or paint their faces or wear certain clothes or lose weight – in order to be beautiful.
I’m against glossy advertisements that sell a dream that is unrealistic and unattainable.
I’m against skinny models and botox and fad diets.
I’m against any activity that pits women against women in a contest to see who is more beautiful. I’m against child beauty pageants, the catty world of tabloid magazines and touched up photos in print media.
I’m against anything that makes women feel inferior if they don’t conform to a set of standards.
On the lighter side, I am curious why Google sent people to my blog after they typed in these search terms:
– are there medical research on how to get rid of grey hair
– picture of someone who looks older than their age due to stress
Was Google thinking of this photo of me when they sent people to my site?
