Forever Young….? Yuppp

Just browsing through the April issue of Allure and instantly noticed a trend! The whole issue is about age, ways to look younger, ways to fake your age, actresses who played parts in films that were WAY off from their real age…. Some pretty good stuff in here. But what I found interesting was this quick piece called “25 Ways to Look Younger–Instantly!” Many of the tricks are really simple.. no Botox here! Now given I’m only 22, I don’t know how much younger I want to look, but in a few years I’ll definitely want to remember these. Here are a few I found interesting and almost ridiculous, but who knows.. Check it–

#1 “the easiest way to take years off your face? three words: wear less makeup.” Agreed.

#5 “get a pedicure at least once a month!” <– of course I love this one!!

#8 “spritz on a grapefruit fragrance… women who wear them are perceived to be ten years younger. seriously” … Hmm, maybe when the perceiver is blind folded?

#16 “wear nail polish or a ring. researchers have found that doing so makes your hands look younger.” Any excuse to paint my nails… but I neverrrr wear rings.

#20 “go to bed an hour earlier. you’ll reduce dark circles, perk up sallow skin and improve your mood.” I really need to start doing this… maybe after college!

#23 “have more sex. doing it three times a week makes women look up to ten years younger.” sure, why not?

One of my personal favorites who has definitely mastered the art of fighting age, which you should know by now, is Jennifer Aniston. There is a lot of gossip over whether she has had plastic surgery or not, and frankly, I don’t think it matters. She eats well, she exercises and she even used a few of Allure’s look-younger tips….

Jen looks even hotter now in her 40s than she did in her 20s….. Maybe because she used tip #3 “whiten your teeth,” #6 “add highlights to your hair,” #19 “warm up your make up,” and #22 “switch from lipstick to soft pink or rose gloss.”

up for a challenge?

I just stumbled upon this link on someone’s facebook:




At first I thought it was just a blog about getting in shape, eating healthy and other tips on a better lifestyle. Then, after further investigation, I discovered it is more of a challenge. I am not sure what it is all about, but I thought I should pass it along to my fellow bloggies. It says that you create a team, select divisions, invite people and compete. Sounds interesting at least to look into further. It starts in June… If anything, check the blog for some quick tips on a healthier lifestyle, like this one I found interesting:

Daily: Exercise 30 minutes, 5 fruits & veggies, reduce stress, no tobacco, drugs, excessive alcohol, only responsible sex…

Well doesn’t that just take the fun out of everything… Ha Ha Ha

bad habits in love! yes girls, we have them too…

Flipping through the April 2010 issue of Glamour on my flight home from the Bahamas, I was shocked and pleased to find an article with such conviction. “What’s Destroying Your Love Life? Oh…Could it Be You?” is brilliant. The article points out how quick we are to blame men for our failing relationship, lifelong loneliness and constant agony, when in reality, ladies, we are just as flawed and the last people to admit it. Often, it is hard for a best friend to tell you what you are doing wrong in your relationship, for fear of hurting your feelings. It is hard to hear it from your man, because well, he’s hardly ever right. And forget about asking your mother, she’s either cut her losses long ago and just agrees with you all the time, or she criticizes you so often you don’t bother listening anymore. But, a magazine, that you trust and love, that you don’t feel personally judged by, like a secret pen pal, or wise old woman, is a great alternative for advice. A magazine can indirectly point out your flaws and mask it with the idea that thousands of girls are reading it, which keeps you from getting offended!

Listen to a few of these common mistakes that Glamour discusses and a ton of chicks are probably guilty of, but check out the issue for the full article:

1. Do you take the fun out of it? How often are you saying ‘no’ when your guy is trying new things? Choosing to stay in and make him stay in too, for fear of what could happen if you leave the comfort of the couch? Rolling over and falling asleep as soon as you hit the pillow? Think about how things were when you started dating. If there has been a significant change in your fun habits, reevaluate and loosen up.

2. Do you over-rely on technology? The magazine makes a great point in discussing the ways in which girls are constantly on facebook, their blackberries and texting. When you are with your guy, put down the laptop, silence your phone, make eye contact and work on the relationship that is in front of you rather than the one across the Internet. I’m sure you would expect that from him, right? Also, nix the bad habit of the lonely text, just because you went home alone tonight, or your friends are out on dates, or you’ve had one too many espresso martinis, that is no reason to text that old, dead-end, flame… he’ll still suck in the morning, and you’ll feel that old regret.

3. Do you pick unavailable guys? Unavailable is a multifaceted term. This doesn’t just apply to the man with a girlfriend, but also, the emotionally unavailable guy who is constantly blowing you off, or telling you he doesn’t want anything serious, even after years of sex, dates and family visits. A rule of thumb, you shouldn’t be coming up short in a relationship. If he is content and you are miserable, chances are you’re losing a lot more than you’re gaining.

4. Do you get off on drama? Ahh, so true, so true. The magazine highlights something key to a relationship: communication. But think of this, when was the last time your man threw a fit, cried, hung up on you, and screamed about four different things at once?? Hopefully, it wasn’t recently. The truth is, a downside to us women being so in tuned to our emotions, is that we often lose control of them just as quickly as we show them. Sometimes, it feels great to scream, because we feel powerful and passionate. We start fights just to get any attention at all, or just for the make up. We bring up things that are completely unrelated because we ran out of recent topics but still have enough fuel to last us till next weekend. Basically, this habit will only get you as far as that last scream and it is definitely one to learn to let go of. There are plenty of other ways you should find passion and power in your relationship!
