Young and Beautiful? Plastic makes perfect…

Standard

Will you still love me
When I’m no longer young and beautiful?
Will you still love me
When I got nothing but my aching soul?

-Lana Del Rey

Beauty comes in many shapes, sizes, colors and interpretations.  Yet, with the precedent set from a flooding of images society is exposed to on such a regular basis, that opening notion can be easily forgotten.  On any social network at any given time, pictures of every day people are stream lined with images of airbrushed celebrities.  Talk about competition: Knowing the man of my dreams could scroll past sexy swim suit models and MY picture in a few clicks of the mouse.  I mean really – I have great boobs… Until you compare them to Queen Victoria Secret Sex Goddess half naked.

Unfortunately, instead of acknowledging the unreal amount of time, money and teamwork put into to creating Hollywood Hotties, we try to keep up.

Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate Instagram filters as much as the next girl.  But where do we draw the line?!  Fake boobs, fake tans, fake hair, butt injections, false eyelashes, acrylic nails, dental veneers – When make up turns into “fake up” it is time to stop the madness!!!  Even being different becomes trendy when “individuality” is in the pursuit of popularity.

Be you.  Everyone else is taken.
