You've Got the Look that I Don't!


I need a new look.  I’ve sported this same hairstyle and makeup routine for close to 10 years.  If you saw me 10 years ago and didn’t see me again until today, you wouldn't notice anything different about me….well, maybe the 15 added pounds.  Okay, it is really more like 20 pounds, but what is 5 pounds…more or less??!!

This past weekend, I spent much needed time at a day spa, utilizing a wonderful gift certificate I received for Mother’s Day.  Spending time at a day spa is a double-edged sword.  While I love the services I receive at the spa AND the fact the staff will pour you into your car when it is time to go home, I always feel horrible when I leave because I become more painfully aware of the many things about my appearance that I want to change.  The day spa staff are more than willing to help me change the things I want changed as long as I have the cash to pay for said changes.  I don’t have the cash; therefore, I cannot make the changes I desire.  

Below is my makeover wish list:

New haircut and style
New face and body products
Body contouring
Body firming
Face firming and resurfacing
Botox
Timeless peels – to make me look years younger by erasing those fine lines and wrinkles*

*Note: these peels actually remove layers of your skin and we all have unwanted layers of skin, right??

I will need a new wardrobe to go with the new body and face the spa is willing to let me purchase, so I will need a personal shopper who can make excellent trendy clothing recommendations.

Yes, I know about the dangers of spa dabbling.  After all, look at Heidi Montag…she started at a spa and then dove right into the hard stuff.  Okay, so don’t look at her.  I know it is difficult since her body parts are never in the same place from one photo shoot to the next, but I won't turn out like Heidi, I promise!   Since I am not independently wealthy from my lucrative modeling career, am not related to or having an affair with Bill Gates and am not an heir to the Warren Buffet fortune, I will not be able to afford all the changes I would like.  Therefore, I’m asking those around me to come to my aid!   I am not too proud to beg and will accept any and all donations to my cause!  I already color my hair and am never picky about the color, as long as it is not gray!  If you cut hair or desire to try some new makeup routines and need someone to be your prototype, I’m your girl.  If you have clothes you are getting rid of that are still in good shape, pick me as your donation box (sizes 5 and 7 please).  If you need 19 other people to share a vial of Botox, I will step up and be counted as one of those 19.  If you know of some home remedy that rids the body of that hideous cellulite while you are wrapped in saran wrap, aluminum foil and wax paper AND removes inches from your waistline – send me an e-mail!!  Even if it is experimental, you’ve found your guinea pig!  If you recently read about a new facial treatment that involves goat milk, bat hair and ricotta cheese….call me – I’m available!  After all, you're never to old to re-create yourself!

I’m just sayin’,
