May 13th 2011 5:56PM Lisa,
First, let me apologize for the typos, I was typing fast. Now, the comment about the rolls. I know of what I speak. I was put on steroids and gained 90 pounds in 6 weeks because I had a pitutary tumor and adrenal gland failure. I carried that weight around for 2 years. I saw the stares. Heard the whispers and felt the humiliation. My husband left me a year later after I was put on steroids because he refused to be married to a fat pig. Unquote. Been there. I refused to leave my house until night time and would often do my grocery shopping at Walmart at 3am so I would run into the fewest people as possible. I finally decided to get my body back. It took 14 months but I lost 110 pounds and didn't take any "supplements." Just portion control and no sweets. If you are overweight, you may have accepted yourself for who you are, which is admirable, but you worry me. Because I walked in thoses shoes. I needed both my knees replaced, my bloodpressure was all over the place. I actually had a heart attack.
But c'mon, you know how people recoil from the pictures of the people that weight 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 hundred pounds. You see them on TV and they can't even get clothes on or get out of bed. I have no idea how they can afford to pay for all that food. Those are the people I was talking about. I am in fear for their lives. I'm sorry that I sounded callous. I have a neighbor who I am trying to help because he's just started on Nutrisystem.
How the hell did I get this far off track. Everybody, I am VERY sorry!!!! I am NOT a hater!!!!!
Your comment about my blonde hair was interesting. I have never had to dye my hair. Grey hair does not run in my family. When my father died at 62, he only had a few strands at his temples. My 78 year old Aunt, who looks 60, if a day, has coal black hair, just like her sister and her three brothers and every single one of them still have a full head of black hair with just a thread or two of grey in it. My mother is a natural blonde. She turmed 72 in Dec and her hair is naturally a light ash blonde. She went digging through my hair a couple of month ago trying to find grey hair, but there isn't any. Don't make assumptions about me because you are way off the mark. Sorry that I write like I'm 70. I know it's unusual for an adult to use proper grammar in this age we live in. That's what you are reading. A lost art form. How to really construct a sentence and actually not butcher our language. Much love and luck to you.
May 13th 2011 3:43PM C'mon now. I bet the person that wrote this article is overweight and doesn't have the confidence or body, to wear the clothes she eyes enviously. The tabloids are only a peek at the women of America who work hard to keep themselves in shape and are the lucky ones who have the genes to carry off todays fashions. (Which by the way, are EVERYTHING!) In fashion today, you can wear any length hem, any height shoe, any hairdo. I'm 53 years old and have beautiful blonde long hair just short of my elbows. My mother, who graduated in 1957, told me on my 21st birthday, that I was a woman now and I had to cut my hair. I looked at her appalled and said "WHAT? Are you CRAZY???" "At least, she said, "You must wear it up." I told her to have a good look at TV and at magazines because we were not living in the '50s anymore! I love my hair. It's versitile. I can wear it in a pony, (I live in S Florida), gather it up and pin it up until I get where I'm going and then let it down and it looks fabulous. It's very versitile. Would I cut it off. Not a chance.
I don't have a line or wrinkle on my face. I wear fancy embroidered jeans and a beautiful selection of dresses. I have an incredile wardrobe and women from their teens to their '70s ask me where I get my clothes. I have spent my lifetime building a collection of classic, timesless, unique pieces and no crazy journalist is going to tell me that I can't go to the pool in the suit that best suits my body type and personality.
That article had to be written by a man or a lady that has led a really boring life, because to the credit of all the women out there who dress to show our personality, she got it all wrong. If you have awesome legs. wear the skirt. If you can't pull it off. Be honest with yourself and focus on a body part that is your best feature. But if your best feature is your boobs...take it easy. We've seen way too many boob jobs. We are no long inpressed with DDDs squished into the smallest amount of material available. There's enough of that at the strip club. OK you've got boobs. Obviously you weren't born with triple DDDs and you look ridiculous. Period. That's what the world thinks. Why LA is so obscesses with boobs is beyond me.
Now, saying that, the bigger fashion disaster is a woman wearing clothes that are too tight. I don't want to see your rolls pouring out of a way too tight outfit. It's not necessary. And fat women have no business wearing bikinis or shorts or short sleeve shirts. If you have allowed yourself to get in that condition, you need medical attention and now. If you have let yourself become morbidly obese, please cover it up.
The rule of being fashionably correct is to make sure your outfit is appropriate to the occasion. You can wear jeans 'til the good Lord call you home. Use your head and keep your clothes appropriate to the situation, keep it understated and you can wear anything you want, at any age. (YOU ALSO HAVE TO KEEP THIS IN PERSPECTIVE. THIS POLL WAS TAKEN IN ENGLAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) 'nuff said!
Mar 18th 2011 9:13PM I have had a long and intimate relationship with acne my entire life. I had terrible skin through high school and it got worse one I started working and wearing foundation ever single day and then at night at the clubs. I love to dance and in those days the clubs were like a giant fog machine with all the smoke. I have never smoked in my life but had horrible breakouts when I was wearing foundation every day. At night I'd wash it all off then coat my face with Clinique moisturizer.
When I had a breakout, I would get a dimesize area that would get infected and underneath all the initial stuff, at least 10 pores would be clogged and I would have to take a sharp tweezer and clean all the hard cores out of the pores. The entire process of just one of these "clusters" as I called them, would take a month to clean them out, use a toner on them and then and antibiotic so it would eventually atop.
Then 14 years ago, I moved to Florida and slowly stopped wearing foundation because the day time sweat would just make it run and look a mess. And once I stopped using a layer of moisturizer (I had tried them all) and then a thick foundation, I realized that, not only did I never have any more breakouts, but there were no scars. I was finally able to grow my hair longer to wear a high pony tail because before I used my hair to try to help cover the zits. Since childhood I had blackheads on my nose and white heads on my chin area.
I was never a smoker because I see what it did to my mother's skin. When she was in her hearly 50s her entire face became saggy and full of lines. Under her eyes she has this terrible saggy bags and now has very heavy jowls that have extended to a very crepey neck.
I'm almost 53 and without any makeup, I have very clear unblemished skin and although I have spent my entire life out in the sun without sunscreen, I have no sports on my face, and my hands are soft and beautiful. I can stay outside all day long and not sunburn. It all just turns a tan color. Not a mole or a stray patch of color to be seen.
I sometimes go for a couple of days without washing my face, but when I do, I use the most important product, a rough skin exfoliator. Any type of cleanser works fine, the main thing is to exfoliate the skin. And I also use a hard bath brush all over when I shower because so many people have pinples, blackhead and whiteheads on their backs. Using the brush all over will cl.an the skin much better.
I love BioOil as a moisturizer. I use that and Vit. At night before I go to sleep and getting enough sleep and drinking tons of water everyday are the key to why I am close to 53 but people always think I'm in my 30s>
Feb 7th 2011 1:15PM I'm glad that the internet (well, anybody who likes music anyway), agrees with me. I was sorely disappointed at the mess they made of the halftime show. I have never been so bored in my life and it's like they knew it because just when I thought it could not get any worse, out would pop Slash, then the Box heads. Box Heads! This is 2011 my friends. We did box heads in kindergarden. I just could not believe this trainwreck. It was a mess and the longer it dragged on, the worse it got. Sorry all all you BEP fans, but the show was a huge stinker and you all know it. I was so bored, I spent most of the time on the internet waiting for the mess to get over with. Grade F+++
Oct 29th 2010 8:23PM Kindly learn how to use the correct work when writing copy for the masses.In this case it should have been FLAIR instead of FLARE and I wish the entire country would please get the difference between Complimentary (which means you are giving someone a Compliment i.e. "You look very nice today. Is a compliment.)
Complement means that a Business or person is giving you something for free i.e. "You are welcome to our Complementary breakfast."
If you are going to use the word, PLEASE take a moment and make sure you use the Correct one!! Thank you.
Oct 29th 2010 8:09PM I will be 53 in April and look at least 10 years younger. I have golden blonde hair that shines in the sun so much so that even my mother (who, when I turned 21, told me I HAD to cut my hair because I was a woman now.) I about peed myself laughing. My hair is almost down to my elbows and is cut straight across. The only coddling it gets is a wash and condition every few days (I swear by Pantene products and try them all) and I put in a few pumps of a wrapping lotion and then run a deep conditioner in the lover 2/3 of my hair before going to bed. I always use a pick to separate the wet hair and lay down with my hair fanned out around me while it dries itself. I don't even own any styling tools. When it dries, I have a natural wave to the left and the rest of it is fairly thick and straight. As I live in S Florida, when it is HOT out, I have options. If I don't want to ruin my clean hair do, then I grab all the hair with a simple twist and put a jeweled clip in it. This keeps my hair off my neck and back and when I get where I am going, the clip comes down, and with a quick shake, my hair is just like new. On days when we're boating or swimming, it's all one length, so I can slick it all back into a high pony and it's out of my way fot as long as I want it gone. Men LOVE my hair. I get beeped at stop lights, and it catches attention because I have been told it sparkles in the sun and you can't help but see it. CUT my gorgeous hair! No Way! When I die, there are specific instructions that my head is to be shaved and my hair, which I has given me such fun, will be donated to Locks of Love. I certainly won't need it anymore, so let someone who needs it have it. Oh, and as a homage to my Dad, I am never getting my hair cut again while I am alive, because he would never let my mother cut my hair as a kid. And that is MY reason for wearing my hair long. Because I love to feel the hair on my naked neck and shoulders and would feel completely exposed without it.
Oct 9th 2010 10:10PM as a long time music/metal fan, at the age of 52, and a Christian, I am really getting sick and tired of people in the Churches who don't know a damn thing about lyrics take things out of context and suggest that lyrics are responsible for the problems in their congregations. The lyrics of music and musicians themselves are not responsible for coddled children and teenagers who do not have a proper upbringing and think that everything in this world should be handed to them on a silver platter or they get pissed off and kill people. I don't understand the logic of it. I don't understand this occasion and I don't understand why, time after time, as kids do stupid and horrible things because they are not taught morals and that when you kill things on video games that is make believe, but because guns are sold to stupid people who don't have any reason to have them, they get in the hands of kids who use them to go back to school and kill the people that pissed them off that day. There is a very long and complicated problem with our society and it certainly does not begin with Ozzy's lyric in freakin Crazy Train. Get a freaking grip America. Take a good hard look in the mirror and your community and make the necessary changes. Weed out the bad people who live around you and get control of yourselves and your kids. Music does not kill people. Stupidity and ignorance does.
Sep 28th 2010 9:27PM Hate to break it to you ladies, but you know all those straight male musicians and all the guys you drool over in the movies, most of them would not be caught dead without their eyeliner, or eyebrow pencil, or whatever makes them feel better about them selves. They are all made up on TV and in the movies so they get used to looking a certain way, and people are used to seeing them a certain way.
Just as a recent example, There was a photo of Richie Sambora in Star magazine out for the evening and he was wearing not only eyeliner, but also EYEBROW PENCIL!!!
I was married to a professional musician for 16 years and it was my job to make sure I had all HIS makeup so he could touch up between sets. And I'm telling you for sure, he was not gay. Not that that has anything to do with it in the first place. Many men are self conscious of their bad skin. Watch the pro active commercials. These days, men, expecially younger men, use as many, if not more! hair products than we do!
If it's done well and it enhances his features or hides his blemishes and makes him feel better about himself, why should he not be able to feel comfortable wearing it. After all, would YOU go out for the night without your "FACE" on? I don't think so!
Aug 13th 2010 5:05PM I love the costume and she looks great in it! As for her being an "Arab" representing the good 'ol US of A, there is no such thing as "American" blood. We all came from somewhere else because our great great to the infinity grandparents were not born on this soil unless you are American Indian. So get off your Holier than thou pedestal and deal with it. If her name was Something Italian you wouldn't have a problem.
I am so sick of the racism in this country. The blacks think they have it bad but I think the different branches of white people have it worse.
Grow the hell up everybody and this could be an awesome country. I'm beginning to get sickened by what I am seeing from supposedly educated adults. Diversity is what makes our country great and we have plenty of real estate for all of us to live in

POOF Paris Hilton GONE
POOF ALL the Kardashions EXTINGUISHED
I would then be given a National Congressional Medal of Honor
