So, Does my butt look big in this?

Answer:

  1. No
  2. Yes but who cares
  3. In What?

This question is just one of many stupid questions that this blog hopes to screw, no tear up and shove into the deepest, darkest compost heap known to man, woman or man-woman combo. 

Why did I write this?

Because being one of those Sunday’s that falls shortly after the Christmas / New Years euphoria everyone is too hung over to deal with real news and is instead feeding us headlines such as

 “Should Magazines Air Brush Photo’s” 

and

 “Best Celebrity Hairstyles EVER”

and not forgetting the

“Get A Bkini Bod Quick”

and

 “Fat Celebs In Bikini’s”

OK, OK I know that every now and then it is nice to see the rich, famous and oh, so polished loose it every now and then and it is ever so tempting to want to look just like that Barbie that your seven year-old is man-handling.  And there would not be many of us who, when faced with the fact that our jeans shrunk over the festive season don’t need a re-assuring pat on the back (side) but please, don’t let it eat you up!

There are some universal truths that will always exist:

  • The longer you look at your butt, the bigger it seems to get. Don’t look.
  • Air-brushing exists -put it down to ‘art’ and ‘fashion’ and move on.
  • The fastest way to get a bikini bod is to just put a bikini on and enjoy yourself – beauty comes from within.
  • Some celebrities have hair, some don’t – why care?

The media can mess with our heads in many ways, telling us one minute to love ourselves and embrace our curves and the next cutting chunks off already skinny and well-proportioned actors, models and artists.  The trouble is, as a whole, we love it! 

It is all about balance.

Learn to look at yourself as a whole person and not as a “bum’, ‘tum’, ‘nose’ or ‘thigh’,  enjoy your bit of movie-star titillation and then move on and lastly, be thankful that you have time to care.

The media is not some un-touchable force, sitting on planet ‘news’ in a far, far away galaxy – the media is a reflection of society, THIS society. If you don’t read it, they won’t print it!
