As I approach 30, I am trying to handle aging with style, class, and a lot of wrinkle cream! Now I will be the first to say that 30 is definitely not old. Just 6 months shy of 30, I feel healthy and vibrant and young. In fact, there is still part of me that wonders what I will be when I grow up.
They say that 30 is the new 20, and I have to agree with a few exceptions. When I was 20, I wasn't as forgetful. For example, I would have never forgotten to write my Monday Edition blog yesterday and only remembered because a co-worker reminded me. When I was 20, I didn't have those fine lines around my eyes. I hate those little things! When I was 20, I could wear short shorts and not look like I sat in cottage cheese. However, when I was 20 I also didn't have the courage to stand up for myself or the confidence to be proud of who I am. I didn't realize that my dress size had nothing to do with my beauty. I guess great things come along with those fine lines and wrinkles!
I say all this as an introduction to my new favorite thing. Drum roll please! My new favorite thing is a book entitled How Not To Look Old. It is written by Charla Krupp. I found it while I was browsing in Borders Book Store one day, and I spent the next two days reading it and making notes. Why do I love it so? I love it because it is filled with make-up tips and product suggestions. I think it is probably written for a slightly older woman than me, but I think even a 20 year old could fall in love with this book! I found my new skin care line (that I absolutely love and is perfect for my skin) with the help of this book. I also learned how to better apply eyeliner, and why I should trade in my whipped berries lipstick for a natural gloss. There is a little bit of information about the book and the author at http://www.hownottolookold.com/. You can purchase the book at any major bookstore. Unsure if you would like it, see if your local library has a copy or if you can buy a used copy at a reduced price from ebay or amazon. Here's to being older and wiser, but still looking young! Enjoy!
