Modern Life

Lets talk about things that baffle me as an old biddy , looking at the modern world .
Im so glad that the fashion for comedy eye brows is starting to die off it was getting so hard to keep a straight  face when someone turned round and they didnt exactly have a matching pair or they had used a black marker pen , even better is drunk eyeliner .
The latest fad seems to be comedy lips typified in endless pouting selfies on twitter . Is it me or does this strike you as downright odd , i'm old enough to remember what happened to Leslie Ash with the trout pout that went wrong . So lets put it out there apparently your lips are made to look like your vulva???  Do they squat on a mirror or does the beautician take a ganders then stick a bit more on each side , my first thought is how do these poor girls sit down and the male i asked did say it reminds him of sucker fish on the side of a fish tank and it was bloody terrifying if you woke up in the morning and it was hiding under your duvet .
Ho hum the things people do in the name of fashion , who are we to mock , remember poodle perms?

  1. At least a perm grew out, some of these youngsters (early 20's) are having Botox, fillers and other questionable ingredients added to their young faces.

    1. Briony - before hair laquer we used 'sugar water' - as setting lotion for our hair and as stiffener for our full petticoats lol

  4. Back in the day (1950s) I had a friend who shaved her eyebrows then penciled in new ones - because she didn't like the shape of her natural ones. Trouble was she'd get lazy and you could see the stubbly new growth coming through.

  5. Lips like your vulva....oh I did laugh at that! My eyebrows, fair anyway, have faded so much with age it looks like I haven't got any at all. Think I need a beauty lesson as, no matter how many times I try, I can't get pencilled brows looking right. Not that I want thick comedy ones, just a normal thinnish one (or 2 rather, don't want a monobrow) would do me.

  7. Unfortunately I have a young girl among my Facebook friends who could selfie post for the Olympics. Posting on FB is all she seems to do day in and day out.
    What a sad life.
    Hugs-x-

  9. I agree with Sheila, just this whole "selfie" thing leaves me perplexed. I mean, who really believes everyone wants to see all those photos of you. And as for the lips, they used to make me laugh cos I would feel like giving them a kiss and sticking them on the bathroom wall. Now seeing how bloody awful some of these girls look I just feel sorry for them.

  10. Back in the eighties I wore black lipstick, glitter eyeshadow and some truly awful hair colours, but I was pretty innocent and covered. Now it seems so much more unsafe. I can believe about the vulva, because it's all about the SEX. I'm glad I'm an old girl LM x
