Being a woman of middle age....I am beginning to think that the world has gone madd. It doesn't help that I live in Orange County and happen to love to shop at Fashion Island, when having lunch al fresco means you can admire the parade of women who are sixty (not fooling anyone) and just looking like they are trying desperately to cling to their youth...while pushing their poodle in a stroller and wearing clothes they bought in the teen section.... Sure, I look in the mirror and notice things aren't the way they were 20 years ago. So I get facials, use sunscreen, wear hats, eat well and try to get my beauty sleep..... I want to grow old gracefully and look good for MY AGE.... like Sally Field, Dianne Keaton..... not look like Barbie gone wrong.
Younger and Younger women are disfiguring themselves because this is becoming the "new look of beauty" Orange skin, big lips, breasts that don't move, faces without expression. Who is happy with that? Whenever I visit small towns like Bend, Oregon (Where I secretly want to live), I think....YEAH! Real women. Women with style, grace and natural beauty...Honestly, it is getting to be so silly in California, and I am a true native that when I am 70 will look 70...with class, grace and my own face.
