Over the last year I’ve been flirting with the idea of getting Botox, which may surprise some of you because everyone already assumes I have it because people in the non-aesthetic world assume all injectables are Botox and when I say I get my lips done they ignorantly say “Oh Botox?” and it drives me fucking crazy.
During Christmas time my friend and I swapped each other our typical treatments at the plastic surgeon and she got her fill of Juvederm and I went for the Botox. We went to Dr.Robert Morin, who’s also a friend so we went in with good spirits and sat there laughing, that was until the needles came out. I have a lot less of a fear with needles than my friend does, she was mildly freaking out about the idea of needles in her lips even though she has had Botox a handful of times. It was very reminiscent of taking your kid into getting a shot that they need, I sat that trying to coach her upon how to handle the pain and squeeze my hand as I would consider myself a lip filler vet (9 years of it, you don’t bat an eyelash cause you know how great it looks after). Once she was finished it was my turn, I was losing my Botox virginity, with no lube. A few quick injections later, we left the office and went our separate ways, I was told Botox takes a few days to kick in, so everyday until then i was making wacky faces seeing if my forehead still moved… it did. I’m not so sure how I feel about Botox, i got a really bad headache from it the first 24 hours, which apparently is rare, then once it settled in I hated feeling frozen in my own skin and I didn’t even get that much so I can’t imagine how celebrities like Nicole Kidman, Courtney Cox or Portia De Rossi must feel because they are full of it. A week after it settled I got used to it and couldn’t feel it anymore, sadly not even 2 months later it had already worn off, so as I sit here writing this I am free of Botox and asking myself am I ready to commit to it or wait a couple years? I’m not sure if I am ready to get in that serious of a relationship yet, but maybe we can have some flings here and there.
I’m pretty obsessed with beauty in general but when it comes to my skin and hair, I don’t fuck around. My hair to be specific, I only trust in the hands of true artists (generally French). To my luck I have an amazing stylist, who fits the bill big time and never disappoints! His cutting skills are amazing and his coloring skills blow my mind, literally. He has taken me from black to a beautiful golden brown hue with hints of chestnut to a dirty blonde with glimmers of gold through out it in a mere 3-4 hours. He’s my saving grace, and a good time to be around. I’m lucky to have an amazing stylist who is also an amazing friend. To all my ladies who live in NYC I highly recommend him, he has his own private studio so you feel very at home and don’t have to deal with the drama of a salon and if you’re lucky he will make house calls, not to mention for his stellar skills is reasonably priced. Getting to the point, I’d love for you to go check out some of his work at www.hairbyjeanmarc.com !!
I’ll leave you with some photos of his work on me… remember I started out like this:
Left me totally fucking underwhelmed! I have never seen such a lot of people dressed so blah, predictable or just looking bad! There were a handful of people that really made me say wow, and that was actually just one person, but I couldn’t stop saying ” yep, another worst dressed” for nearly every person I saw! People hire new stylists and I’m talking about you Heidi Klum, she by the way came to no surprise to me to be my #1 Worst Dressed, she always is on that list for me, will she ever learn?
Olivia Wilde in Gucci
Wow, talk about a pregnancy glow, she looks down right stunning and jaw dropping! #stylethebump
Kate Beckinsale in Zuhair Murad
Per usual, she looks amazing! Does this woman ever look bad? NO!!!!
Jenna Dewan Tatum in Roberto Cavalli
This woman had a baby 4 months ago, yes you heard me! She’s shutting that carpet down and looking sexy as eff. Her husband is a lucky, lucky man!!!!
Margo Robbie in Gucci
Beautiful hair & makeup, check. Deep V and high slit, check. Basically all the components any girl needs to looking beautiful.
Matthew McConaughey & Camila Alves in Dolce & Gabbana
There is nothing sexier than a well dressed man, especially one who takes a risk and goes for a green velvet smoke jacket! They get my vote for the Best Dressed Couple!
Worst Dressed, sorry gals!
Heidi Klum in Marchesa
Where do I start??? The choker, the dress, the hair.. wow there is nothing good about this… I said it before and I will say it again, she has no business hosting Project Runway.
Paula Patton in Stephane Rolland Couture
Oh girl, you did not just wear this? In what reality are you and your style team living in, where this looks good? I can’t.
Jennifer Lawrence in Dior
What is this? I think Bryan Boy did it best, with his down comforter wrapped around him with 2 black belts… I hate her hair and have since I saw she cut it off, and this dress just underwhelms me in so many ways I can’t even write about them thats how lame the dress is.
